That’s better—Three Sharps is Plenty for Church Music!

Posted by glennled on April 11, 2011

Glenn, Rex, and Les

Last Sunday, I again played trumpet in the church orchestra—dum-de-dum-dum! This time, however, the music was written in some of the easiest key signatures: C, F, B-flat, G, and A—whew, no problem! Begone to that diabolical stuff like the key of F-sharp, which has a whopping six sharps (see my post of two weeks ago, 28 March 2011). Hmmm (or Hymnnn)… it was a lovely day.  🙂

    It was fabulous, as usual! You complain, but you love it no matter how many sharps they throw at you 🙂

      Yes, indeed I do love it! The arrangements really are unusually interesting, and the choir and orchestra are inspirational.
