A Funeral, A Verse and An Owl and A Pussycat

16 Jan

Eleven members of my choirs did something beautiful today – we sang at the funeral of a stranger and we made a family’s day a little easier. Our choir leader had been approached by the daughter and those of us who were free at short notice went to our local Church, St Euny, to sing three of O’s favourite hymns – How Great Thou Art,  The Lord is My Shepherd and Abide With Me.  It was a random act of kindness that I was very pleased to be a part of.

One of the verses of How Great Thou Art really appealed to me and I give it to you here:

When through the woods,
and forest glades I wander,
And hear the birds sing
sweetly in the trees.
When I look down,
from lofty mountain grandeur
And see the brook,
and feel the gentle breeze,
Then sings my soul.

This afternoon we went to one of many local meetings called to ‘save’ our NHS. It was held in the Maritime Museum and in the foyer as we left, this delightful pair in their ‘beautiful pea green boat’ lifted our spirits.dscn9283

This post is especially for my very dear friend and singing mentor J, with much love.
