brought such joy in the music today. Carlo blest us (as usual) with fabulous organ pieces for prelude (Voluntary I by Stanley), offering (Nun Freut Euch by Wechmann), and postlude (Festal March by Kroeger). The choir sang their hearts out on "First Song of Isaiah" - and the only complaint I heard was from members of the congregation itching to sing along with them - we all love that piece! Wow, did the choir ever do a FANTABULOUS job. It might just be my imagination but it sure sounds like the congregation sings the celtic alleluias louder each week. And we sang with great joy together "From All that Dwell" and "Dear Christians, One and All" and "At the Lamb's High Feast" and "Praise to the Lord" and "He Is Arisen, Glorious Word!" Paschal joy still gushing full and strong like an ever-flowing stream, five weeks out from the "feast of feasts" as the queen of seasons bright still renders its unique and brightly shining joy.
