I had the opportunity to play a small musical role in a church service this morning. The piece I was asked to take part in was a wonderful work for hand bell choir and flute. It was a thoroughly enjoyable musical experience.
I was also asked to perform a work of my choice for flute alone during the prelude. Of course, I chose Bach, specifically the Sarabande from the Suite in A minor. I love the entire Suite and, especially, the Sarabande.
The performances went well and, in fact, I felt remarkably peaceful and fulfilled all day. Maybe I should make it a good habit to start each day with Bach!
