This past Sunday our choir performed Theodore Dubois', "Seven Last Words of Christ." A little over 250 people were in attendance. The music was magnificent. I didn't think the choir could outdo itself but they did! The church itself started out pretty bright with the light streaming in through the stained glass windows. But as the piece progressed, night descended upon us and by the time they got to the point in the program where Christ died, the sun had nearly set, the church grew dark, and the only thing lit was Eric Armusik's painting of the crucifixion. It was a blessed night. Congratulations to Lynn, Frank, the soloists, the orchestra, and of course the St. Sebastian choir.
Last week was cold and as I was taking Sebastian for his last airing out, I was struck by this incongruous scene a snow covered lawn and a tree in full spring flower.Then by Saturday, the sun was so bright and warm I was struck at how brightly Sebastian was lit up when he came to say good morning that I snapped this shot to share with you.
