I’m helping with the special music for Easter Sunday. I’m playing the recorder! Ha! The last time I did that was for Kathryn and Todd’s wedding! It’s a little nerve-wracking, and my instrument is one of those $3.99 plastic dealies, but I think it’ll be okay.
I’m also playing the organ for a couple of things. I’m playing one piece that’s a duet between organ and piano, and another piece that Judy is playing trumpet for.
The trumpet piece is “Jesus Christ is Risen Today”. I’ve said it before, but this is my favorite Easter hymn. The line that always gets me is “Now above the sky he’s king, where the angels ever sing”. It never fails to choke me up – even just playing it for practice yesterday before school… Sheesh, Brad! Pull yourself together, man!
