This week's service has been
in the works for a while, ever since Rector Keith gave his homily
(sermon) on the spirituality that he heard in contemporary music while
he was growing up in the '60's and '70s.
So he and St. Jame's Music Director,
Stephen Holowitz, set about to make that music come alive during a
service as well. So instead of playing traditional hymns and Psalms,
they chose 7 songs by Canadian artists of the era.
I won't spoil it for you, I'll let Rector
Keith introduce the songs. You see, before he answered the call of the
church, his calling, like mine, was radio!
So, for the first hour of my show, I'll
turn the pulpit AND the console over to him!
For the rest of the show,
I'll feature another week of 'field recordings' that I made at
Vibrafusion Labs when I was just starting to get back into recording
events for my show after a long hiatus.
I immediately fell in love with the indie
music/arts scene the had materialized while I was away from it. Amidst
the angst and whirlwind energy, I found SMART music, poetry and art!
This week I'll feature recording from 3
events in early 2015.
