Primary has been asked to sing in Sacrament Meeting this coming Sunday. We have had one week to practise, as we had General Conference last Sunday. Eek!
I decided to play it safe. If you have an easy song with some extra accompaniment, it always sounds like you are WAY more prepared. If it is a well polished accompaniment, it will sound extra special.
We are doing ‘Hosanna’ (CS 66-67). We have one of the musical male teachers on a glockenspiel doing the ‘Ding, Dong, Ding” part (we got approval for this from our Bishopric), our male Primary Pianist on the piano, and then I will play the violin part for the “Hosanna!” echo descant to the end of the piece. Our Primary President is going to conduct the children. It would be fine with a flute, and I was going to play the recorder (nicely, of course) but I am a bit rusty on my recorder playing skills. To cut a long story short, I am playing it on the violin instead – end of story! ;D
