Sunday Music Musings May 28, 2022

May 29, 2022

Since I am recovering from this pesky very contagious strain of Covid, I won’t be in church tomorrow—please give Henry all your support! I’m doing fine and had monoclonal antibodies!

Our first hymn, See the Conqueror Mounts in Triumph (IN BABILONE) celebrates the Sunday after the Ascension and we used it last year as well so I wrote about it here.

The gargoyles will cover the offertory singing Nick Pages’ TTB arrangement of Stephen Stills’(b.1945) Find the Cost of Freedom. Stills refers back to the fallen soldiers of the Civil War with his reference to blue and gray (he wrote it after visiting a Civil War battlefield), but he also wrote it at the time of the Vietnam war as a lament to the young dead which is sadly appropriate this week as well. It appeared on Crosby, Stills & Nash fourth album So Far, with cover art by Joni Mitchell. After 9/11 they appeared on the Tonight Show singing this at 27 minutes in.

I am grateful when I realize this time last year, the guys got together to sing this outside masked in the gazebo. So as frustrating as this is, we’ve come a long way.

Our last hymn is the Navy Hymn, Eternal Father and you can read all about it here. Did you know there are over 100 verses?

Have a safe and healthy weekend!

Next week is a concert I have been preparing for for months, including the visit of a Prince from India to play harmonium with Harmonium! Please conside gertting a ticket for the concert or fundraiser and read all about it here.
