Singing Easter Joys

 
We're spending happy hours in the choir loft this Holy Week, rehearsing and singing our way from Maundy Thursday through Saturday night's Easter Vigil. Sunday's plan is to raise the roof with glorious choral Alleluias accompanied by bells, a brass ensemble with tympani and pipe organ.
Music passed down through the centuries.

It must have been a very special experience for both participants and audience.

I sang in the choir when I was young. The choir always so happy on Easter morning. Happy Day to you.
