Yesterday morning I dug out some music to play at the 11 am Presbyterian (Welsh) chapel service in Hoylake. I decided to play some stuff by Noel Rawsthorne for the offertory (taken separately rather than during a hymn) , and postlude (one of this Trumpet Voluntaries). When I arrived at the church I was told Noel had played for a midweek funeral (I'm usually in Headingley so cant do these), it was a friend of one of his neighbours. So I sat at the organ and played the music of a man who had sat on the same seat a few days earlier.!
I recall another coincident. I had decided to play the reflective Howells Psalm Prelude Set 1 no 2 '(as the hart panteth..) leading up to the start of the service. The Minister walked in , and opened the service with the words 'As the Hart panteth after the water brooks, so longeth my soul for thee O Lord'.
She is totally non musical and wouldnt have had a clue what I had just played.
Anyone else had coincidences like this ?
