It's been quite a musical weekend - starting with an absolutely superb evening at the de Beers' lovely home on Friday, along with a group of keen singers, musicians and pizza-eaters. I poached this photo off Lizzie's FB timeline as my hands were full of either pizza, violin or mandolin. I have resurrected the mandolin after many months of not playing it and enjoyed warming it up again. Also played it in church today instead of the usual violin - we thought we'd vary things a bit, so had Bron on piano, Justus on guitar and me on mandolin. Anyone know of any other instruments ending in 'lin'? It seems I have only been playing instruments that have my name in it, so am wondering what else I can tackle. Cello really appeals but I'd have to make it a cellin or cellolin...also there's the pianolin?
Sovereign Grace music - they have attempted to marry old hymns full of solid and profound theological content with modern arrangements and styles, with much success. Probably a favourite that we did this evening was "Behold our God" - listen to it here.
