on the way … to Frontier Services song

A while since the last posting and this one needs to be short.  Full-on times leading up to Christmas.

On the music front, a few things happening:

  • Dale and I have finally completed a vocal track for On the Way – my reflection on paragraph 3 of the Uniting Church’s Basis of Union.  I know; doesn’t sound all that riveting – until one actually reads para 3 – and then it’s actually mind-blowing.  Past posts unpack that somewhat.  Anyhow it’s great having a vocal track in the can, and Dale as usual did a great job with the recording.  I’ve recently upgrading (or downgraded, depending on your perspective) to Outlook Express, so the first project with the new software.   Check out the vocal track. It’s in many ways an Affirmation of Faith, Uniting Church/David Mac-style.
  • I’ve been invited to write a special song – to be sung by all present – for Frontier Services 100th birthday celebrations next September. Yes; truly honoured by this!  While up at Noosa recently some melody-line thoughts have started to emerge.  Kinda want this to have a bit of an Australian folksong feel – though in a contemporary sense.  My hunch is that post Christmas Day, things will start coming together.  “Mantle of safety” will be in the chorus somewhere, that’s for sure.
  • Christmas Day, we’re doing my Celebrate Emmanuel from a few year’s back.  I’m taking my Yamaha keyboard so as to add in a synth/trumpet part in the refrains.

Christmas blessings,everyone.
