Yesterday, our church was full of music. For the morning worship services, the choirs combined with members of the Georgia Symphony for a stunning performance of Vivaldi’s Gloria. In case you’re unfamiliar with it, this recording is beautiful (and it’s pretty to look at, too)!
We closed worship with Angels We Have Heard on High. It’s one of my favorite hymns and accompanied by organ, strings and brass, a truly joyful sound!
In the afternoon, we hosted the Alpharetta Community Chorus’ Holiday Concert. It was my first time hearing this chorus and it was delightful. They invited a local high school’s chamber chorus and mens’ chorale to join them for a few songs. The combined choirs sang the final piece; again our sanctuary was filled with joyful sound.
Here at home, my Christmas playlist is on non-stop shuffle.
…which means I’ve had zero time for audiobooks and podcasts. But I added two new recordings to my Audible library this morning (this members-only freebie and a collection of PD James’ holiday short stories). Must make time to listen to both soon, along with Tim Curry’s wonderful performance of A Christmas Carol (because – yikes!! – less than two weeks to go!)
What’s on your playlist this season?
