As I mentioned earlier, I sang last week for Palm Sunday. It didn't go too badly, although the Vexilla Regis could have gone better. On the upside, I won't be singing for Easter Sunday.
A few years back the organist asked me to sing for Easter. I was flabbergasted. I split Sundays with some Cantrices, a few of whom are better than me. For such a holy day, we should go with our strengths. Unless.... the organist thought I was the better choice?
"Are you sure?" I asked. "I mean, this is such an important day...."
"Yeah, I'm sure," he said. "Everyone else is busy."
So, there will be no burst bubble for me this year. I opted out of singing this Easter because my daughter will be returning from her school trip for the hundredth anniversary of Vimy late Saturday/early Sunday. I would most likely be too exhausted to sing. However, the soprano is quite good, better than I am, so there's that. The only downside? Without me singing, the chance of the proper sequence being sung is zero. And that's a shame.
