It only seems a short time ago we were looking for Christmas music, now it is already time to start thinking about Lent, Holy Week and Easter music! As a group the Grey/Bruce RCCO organists normally come together to put on our Good Friday “Harmonies in the Midst of Madness and Miracle” offering. Due to Covid the last two years had to be cancelled, but we are hoping to be back this year at Knox United Church in Durham.
I have started recording pieces for a series of Lent Reflections, these also have been online due to Covid for our congregation last year, and again this year. I find it interesting to play different settings of some of those great Lent hymn tunes. Here is an example of a setting of Wondrous Love by David N. Johnson from the Augsburg Organ Library – Series II – Lent.
