We’re ready for another Christmas Sunday, the fourth and final Sunday of Advent! Bring it on. Choir met last night and prepared for things, along with instruments. It will be a meaningful service, as always.

There is a descant in the song, but after working through it some last night I’ve decided to cut it and have sopranos sing along with the rest. It’s a struggle without enough vocal support. And that’s OK, it’s a beautiful song even without that.I recorded the parts for the song in the BOX here on this page —>
