gr8tswim saidShe did indeed sing Amazing Grace quite beautifully. I think the organist however was trying too hard to get equal attention - forgot his role as accompanist.
Fooling around with you got me crying.
I re-listened to the video to see what you were talking 'bout, and when she got to
"We've no less days
to sing God's praise
than when we first begun."
When she did a retard at "we first...," it was so beautiful, I started crying.
I composed myself and then thought I could check out the retard without crying. I got past the retard on "we" but started crying on "first."
It's as if she's retarding in a way to take us back to the picture of the baby in 2001 a Space Odyssey.
Her retard is cosmic.
(Hey, I'm 52 and I am capable of getting a little sentimental about when I first begun.)
The organist wasn't trying to get equal attention. It seems the game plan was this:
1st verse - a cappella
2nd verse - simple accompaniment (as written in hymn book )
3rd verse - more than simple
4th verse, when we've been there 10,000 years - requires a grander accompaniment
However, Camellia did not build with the accompaniment.
And, Ken, didn't tone down at the retard.
Memorial services are not concerts. Sometimes we cannot be too fault-finding in these circumstances.
