Musical Monday - Remembrance at Union Church

Brenda a the Union Church just outside the wee hamlet of Uniondale, asked us back in August if we would sing at their Remembrance Service November 8.  The choir said yes and boy are we glad we did.

Pastor Kate, Brenda the organist and the wonderful people of the church were just so welcoming and warm.  The service was very well thought out with a Canadian Veteran laying the wreath, and a wonderful trumpeter playing Last Post and Reveille.

 We sang Brother James Aire.
 For the Beauty of the Earth
 The Lord's Prayer
 No Tears in Heaven

Hallelujah and finished with The Parting Blessing.
The Embro Thistle Singers outdid themselves.  The acoustics in the tiny, lovely old church were so lovely.  And of course our amazing Kristy had to play 1/4 beat ahead of us all because of the placement of the piano and of course, it all went off with aplomb.

Thank you to the Union Church for a wonderful luncheon afterwards as well.  All in all a very memorable morning with new friends.  I hope your Remembrance Service is as touching and thoughtful as the one we got to participate in today.

It appears as though the Embro Thistle Singers gave a very memorable performance at Union Church for their Remembrance Day Service. What an absolutely perfect way to honour our Veterans.
