Music Monday: Christmas in July
As we begin this final week in July, we celebrate Christmas! Yes, Christmas in July; remembering that it is Jesus who is always with us bringing hope and light into a world of darkness. Especially now, as we continue living life in a global pandemic, journeying uncharted paths, we are reminded it is hope that we need! Hope that comes from the gift of God’s love to us. Without it, we are lost, wandering in the wilderness alone. Jesus is the light of the world; our hope! So, put on your ugly Christmas sweater, light a candle, make some hot chocolate, and join in singing some of our favorite yuletide carols. You might even learn a little history behind these favorite songs: What Child Is This, O Little Town of Bethlehem, Silent Night, and Joy to the World. Be sure to listen to the end for a special, Sleigh Ride, 4-hands piano duet reprise! Merry Christmas…in July!

Need some music to rejuvinate your Monday?
Today’s Music Monday features a staple of the organ repertoire: Leon Boëllmann’s (1862-1897) organ blockbuster Suite gothique (1895). Although, Boëllmann’s promising career was cut short by tuberculosis at age 35, he managed to amass a catalog of more than 150 compositions before his untimely death. Boëllmann’s best known work by far is this piece, the four-movement Suite Gothique; especially the final toccata, with its menacing pedal theme, which has long been a staple of concert programs.
