    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    Wow, CT64 ... an ambitious schedule of music there.
    Churches here are far and few between that will take on that amount of music, let alone have it scheduled this far in advance.

    I'm certain it will be wonderful music ... and wish I could be there, too.

    Thank you
    It will be part of the Sunday morning worship service in lieu of the sermon/homily.

    I think CCSL's one of only two in Australia that still do the Benediction, it's very moving, too.

    I have no idea what the Methodist church will dish up. Last year we
    celebrated the local church's first Ash Wednesday and then some.
    This year we will be doing an Easter Cantata and I'm in the choir.

    I have no idea Krummhorn. That I will need to check into when I go to
    practice again. It's been a while. I love that one by Bach. But the
    leader might have us doing something else.

    That's cool, Judy ... Great that you are in the choir. A wonderful way to serve the church and appreciated by many people.

    The Bach is a bugger though ... for rehearsals, since the choral parts are so inter-mingled, the choir director plays the womens parts on the piano and I do the mens parts on the organ at rehearsal. And, we're doing it in German, too.

    I now need to start working on the organ continuo part - I can whip that into shape in a couple weeks.
