Recent speakers at South Woden have chosen the topics of light and water for their reflections. Meanwhile, during Lent we are conscious of the shadows and earth, complementary elements.
We enjoyed last week a lovely setting of Psalm 51 by Lassus. our people are involved in all sorts of other musical contributions. We mention but two here for tomorrow, Saturday 28th March in or near Canberra.
The Gospel Folk at Loriendale Apple Festival
Following a long tradition of appearances at Owen’s fantastic farm north of Canberra full of many varieties of apple and other fruits, The Gospel Folk sing at this very enjoyable annual charity event under Brian’s expert baton.
You can buy lunch and all sorts of fresh apple products, enjoy the lovely outdoor setting and listen to an afternoon of entertainment. The Gospel Folk will be singing in the early afternoon. Entry is by donation, all to charity.
Shadows and light
Later that afternoon, at 5:00 pm at Wesley Uniting Church, The Oriana Chorale presents works by Bach, Barber, Shepherd, Victoria and Gibbons.
The relevant Lenten connection is a varied and delightful series of Tenebrae responsories by Tomas Luis de Victoria.
Not to be missed.
