It is, as they say, "in the can". Sophia and I finished the final edits from all the contributions of audio and video files on Friday evening just before our Good Friday service online via Zoom and YouTube. It felt a little strange going straight from finishing this to the passion narrative, but also gave us an anticipation for what is to come on Easter morning.
Kevin Haggart did a wonderful job with the arrangement which includes an interlude using the March from Judas Maccabeus, the Oratorio from which the hymn tune originates, and we hope that it lifts your spirits as we celebrate Easter within the confines of our own homes this year.
The film will premiere on YouTube (so fancy!) at 7:30 a.m. on Easter morning, the time we would usually be gathering at Duthie Park for our dawn service. This year you can join us in song instead and warm up your voices in preparation for the Easter Service which will be at the usual time of 11 a.m. and will also include this wonderful hymn.
