Someone said recently that Holy Week is Holy Hell for church musicians. I believe that about sums it up.
I practically lived at church this week. Chapel service at work Wednesday morning. Choir rehearsal Wednesday evening. Maundy Thursday service on, of course, Thursday. Tenebrae on Friday. Breakfast with the Easter Bunny on Saturday. Sunrise service at 6:30 this morning. Sunday School. Traditional service at 11:00 am.
For Christians this week represents the meat of what we believe. The stories are painful and devastating and beautiful. So is the music.
But.... I'm pooped. I promise a more interesting post soon. After I've slept an hour or two.
