Re: Remembrance Sunday

Re: Muzak for the Mass

There was Muzak for the in and out at the funeral I played for today. I don't like it, but I just take the money and run when it happens. A few years ago the group were playing at a wedding.

Re: I enjoyed that!

Our assistant priest this morning thanked the musicians, readers, servers and congregation for contributing to a joyous celebration of Mass.

Re: Music Recitals

Our SVP hosted a concert given by a local choral society. It raised a lot of money for the SVP. The church was packed, but it was a massive amount of work selling tickets, organising refreshments etc. And there are considerations like provision of loos. Lots of the audience were parishioners, but pl...
