A little Christmas play!

Great job today, choristers!  I know Mrs Baillie was very pleased, and the St. Nicholas kids wanted to know what  was that second song (Shepherd’s Pipe Carol). I haven’t been able to figure out how to post the recordings yet, but some of you mentioned you wanted more Kid Snippets.  Since we sang “The Shepherd’s Pipe Carol,” here’s a little shepherd’s play for you. 😊

Hark! The Herald Angels Sing – words

Hello choristers! I hope you all made it safely home today. It is still snowing at my house! There are several branches down around my yard. Tonight I am going into Salt Lake to hear my oldest son, Shelby, sing in a concert. I am excited!
Here are the words to Hark! The Herald Angels Sing. It will be the hymn we recess out to at the carol services.

Hark! the herald angels sing,
Glory to the newborn King.
Peace on earth and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled.
Joyful all ye nations rise,
Join the triumph of the skies,
With th’angelic host proclaim,
Christ is born in Bethlehem.
Hark! the herald angels sing,
Glory to the newborn King.

Christ, by highest heaven adored,
Christ, the everlasting Lord.
Late in time behold him come,
Offspring of a virgin’s womb.
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see,
Hail th’incarnate Deity,
Pleased as man with man to dwell,
Jesus, our Emmanuel.
Hark! the herald angels sing,
Glory to the newborn King.

Hail the heav’n-born Prince of Peace,
Hail the Sun of Righteousness!
Light and life to all he brings,
Risen with healing in his wings;
Mild he lays his glory by,
Born that man no more may die,
Born to raise the sons of earth,
Born to give them second birth.
Hark! the herald angels sing,
Glory to the newborn King.

Which performer are you?

I mentioned this comic to you last week.  Now that the Christmas recital is over, which one do you think you were?  Or were you someone different that is not mentioned here?  🙂

Violin Practice

Hello, Choristers!  Nice work yesterday!  I was especially pleased with the way you came on and off the stage quickly.  Little things like that are important in a concert, and when it’s done poorly, it makes the concert long and tedious.  People want to hear performances, not watch lots of shifting people!

Now, how would you like to have to get ready for a performance with this little guy helping you?
