Advent Lessons and Carols at the Episcopal Centre at Duke University. Now that was fun. I had a flute, guitar, and a bassoon to accompany the lovely little 3-stop Holtkamp that lives at the Episcopal Centre. Kudos to Alison, David, and Daniel for the wonderful job they did!

A festive banquet and Lyn Roast ... erm, Hymn Sing followed. Boy am I glad my sight-reading skills have improved since I started living the life of a church musician. They came in very handy during the Hymn Sing!

I'm just going to list the readings and the hymns we did during the Lessons and Carols.

74, Blest be the King whose coming is in the name of God! (VALET WILL ICH DIR GEBEN)

This was my last service at the Episcopal Centre at Duke. It's been wonderful serving with them for the past couple of years. I wish them all the luck and good tidings.
