I began this Lenten season with the sin of pride. Having missed Mardi Gras by spending it all day at a hospital with my father, I figured I was entitled to at least some leeway on Ash Wednesday.
Fourth Presbyterian had a service this evening with Communion and the imposition of the ashes. During the service my choir performed my arrangement of "Lord Jesus, Think on Me." Basically, I pilfered from several sources. The accompaniment is a re-working of a dance suite by Handel, with the hymn text laid on top of it.
The anthem went beautifully. I got tons of compliments after the service. Even if it is a sin, I did enjoy the good comments.
