The phone call came just after 8.00 a.m.; our Organist & Choirmaster had been taken ill so please would I play the organ. No problem I said and then it dawned on me that tonight is the Advent Nine Lessons and Advent Hymns/Anthems. So it was of to church early to have a Choir Practice prior to the Parish Mass with just enough time to look at a couple of items for tonight and to arrange for a short practice before the actual service. I hope it will be OK this evening!!!!!!!!!!
