One of the first classical music pieces I could ever identify by name was Adagio in G Minor by Tomaso Albinoni. I had it on a cassette tape and listened to it over and over in my early teens.
Last night before church, the organist played an organ arrangement as the prelude to worship. When the screen showed what he was playing, I laughed out loud. Fortunately, there were people chit-chatting, so my laughing during a somber time on the Christian calendar was not a disturbance.
The person who prepares the slide mis-heard or mis-understood the name of the composer. His last name became Binoni. First name? Al. Ha! I explained it to a couple of people who were sitting around me, but they didn’t think it was as funny as I did.
I saw another church member take a picture of the screen, but she was far away, and we left in silence after the service, so I couldn’t talk with her about it. Maybe tonight before church I can ask her about it. But maybe we won’t laugh too much. If laughing before Maundy Thursday service was bad, laughing before Good Friday service would be worse…
