Well, during that service, the choir would also sing various songs. Different ones different years, except they always always always sang two: "It's Over" and "Ten Thousand Angels." When I got old enough, I joined the choir and got to sing those songs too. Either my Googling powers are weak today, or "It's Over" is a really obscure song... I'm going to have to ask my mom to tell me who wrote it, and maybe I can share it next year. But today, I'm going to share two very different renditions of "Ten Thousand Angels" that I found on YouTube. They are radically different -- one traditional, one bluegrass -- but I think they're both awesome.
Our church here doesn't have a choir, but we will be having a Tenebrae service tonight, which I'm very glad of. I never seem properly prepared for the joy of Easter if I don't go through the dark journey of Good Friday first.
