True post, lying date #5. True date, December 6.
H.A.R.E. has a gig at St Jo’s hospital!
Early next week, Rudy, E.g., and I will take harp and recorders to play in the chapel for half an hour. Merrilee will come too, to play Christmas carols, and a couple members of Take Ten will be along to help sing them.
But which carols?
The hospital chapel uses, naturally, a Catholic hymnbook. The other day Rudy gave us photocopies of the hymnbook’s Christmas section, and this evening he left a message for Cai, Fergus, and Cuca, asking them to choose between four and six of those carols so that Merrilee can prepare beforehand. Rudy also told them he’d be busy next day with visits to the ophthalmologist and the optometrist, so if they could e-mail their selections, that would be great.
Once they’d figured out how to open my iPad, our pets answered our trusty Alto Recorder player:
krismus myusik 4 the hopesital
Heer ar the himz we choze.
