I did not think that they would be done in time but the last of the organ was moved out of the church today in time for 4:00 confessions (without much time to spare.) In the picture below you can see that there is no longer anything behind the screen in the choir loft - just space. Here is one of the larger pipes being handed down from the balcony.
As it turned out they would only have to saw one pipe in half. The rest squeezed out (but just barely.) They supposed that they were installed before the screens were put up. Below is what the church looked like yesterday with pipes laying around getting ready to be hauled away.
For those of you wondering what yesterday's tune was here is the answer:
bee hole (d), bee hole (d)
The wood of the cross
The wood of the Cross
On witch is hung "our salvation"
On which is hung our salvation
"O" come, lettuce, a door.
O come let us adore.
Some semblance of sanity and order should return to Adam's Ale next week.
For my friends involved in INSANITY, this sign was spotted at the seminary.
