Yesterday morning we were a bit down on numbers in both the audience and choir, so I turned the wick up a notch or two on my singing and stuck mostly to the tune rather than singing the bass part. Then, given the gospel was about the women waiting around with their oil lamps I gave them a Vague Approximation on Wachet Auf on the way out.
Anyway, after my Vague Approximation there was applause (I thought they'd stopped doing that), then I had two people praising my singing afterwards and appreciation of the voluntary.
So far that looks like a lot of self trumpet blowing, but my point is to say that we are appreciated at the organ stool, even if such open appreciation is rare, it is good to know that we have some sort of (positive) impact, and I hope everyone has someone in the congregation moved/inspired/perked up a bit by the contribution we all make.

We ended up with no minister yesterday ! They decided to have a 'Songs of Praise' service with some short readings in between.
I had to play 14 hymns (though mostly they sang 2 verses, a few 3 verses). They have had these occasionally before but never 14 hymns !
Anyway I got positive feedback and lots of nice comments for my efforts, and they do enjoy different harmonies I use for the last verses (mainly those by our resident local Noel Rawsthorne)
