Yesterday my mother, sisters and I went to Charlotte, NC, to visit my cousin Margaret. On the way down mom asked if we could sing “Morning Star” for Margaret, a song which is traditionally sung to conclude Christmas Eve services in the Moravian Church. I think this is the first time we’ve all sung together. Mom started us off with the first verse, followed by Elizabeth, Rachel and myself. I think we really nailed the “terrified child voice” that you often get in the traditional service, as the lead parts are normally sung by young children!
Ok, it was pretty rough, but we hadn’t rehearsed at all.
This is a picture of Margaret and me. We love her so much!
Here is Margaret with her husband, Max.
