Große, große Freude

Today we welcomed our new cantor, Janet Muth, to St. Paul's. It was sheer delight to feast on some Bach pre-service (Kommst du nun) and during the offering (Wenn in höchsten Noten sein), and then a postlude by Dunstable on the Agincourt Hymn (one of my favorites; and we'd sung "O Lord, How Deep" during Distribution). The congregation responded very well to all her leads. Can't wait till choir starts up again! We have been so very blessed in our musicians. I am particularly thankful for all the years with Carlo and for Kate stepping up to the plate during the interim and doing a fine job, and I'm very excited about what the future holds with Janet on the organ bench.
