I’m thinking of doing “Carmina Burana” tomorrow. It’s a New Years tradition in Europe. Great fun for a chorister.

Playing Your Part

December 30, 2011

For the past several years, my daughter Rosie has been the director of drama at a local middle school. Students come to audition and a few are selected to play the lead roles. But there are still many other important supporting roles that must be cast—roles that are vital to the production.

There are other young people who want to be a part of the show but don’t relish being in the spotlight. They are the ones who will change scenery, open and close the curtains, run the lights, and assist with makeup and costume changes. Then there are the parents from the community who provide pizza and cookies for rehearsals, donate goods, build sets, sew costumes, make signs, and hand out programs.

The success of the performances are the culmination of an intense 4- to 5-month process that is dependent on the hard work of a wide range of dedicated volunteers.

Similarly, for the body of Christ to function fully, each of us must play a part. Every believer is uniquely gifted for service. When these gifts are combined in a cooperative relationship, “every part does its share” (Eph. 4:16), and the separate parts make up the whole (Rom. 12:5).

We need each other. What part are you playing in the life of the church?

For the church to function fully,
We must all fulfill our role;
While the Spirit’s gifts are many,
They combine to serve the whole. —Sper

For a church to be healthy,
its members must exercise their spiritual gifts.

Read: Romans 12:1-8

We have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function. —Romans 12:4
Bible in a year:
Zechariah 13-14; Revelation 21

Thank you all for your thoughts, prayers and wishes.
We spent today making arrangements. The funeral will be on Tuesday morning, which should give everyone time to get here.

If anyone knew Joseph A Burke in the Army Air Corps back in WWII, that's my Dad. (He didn't have the "Sr." in his name yet.) No reason to hide him behind my "Smith" identity on the off chance someone knew him.

I've found some Youtube links that are actually staged, as Orff wanted, with dancers and choreography. I'll have to provide Latin-to-English translations in text. A few Youtube entries do lyrics in both languages, but the images are not as compelling as the staged link.

The biggest issue is that in breaking it up, all the attacca's are lost. You have that conflicting fermata and attacca at the end of most songs, and most peformances take the fermata and leave the attacca behind. I only saw it done once the way Orff wrote it, with the attaccas honored, and it was an opera director from Berlin who conducted it at the Hollywood Bowl. The momentum he builds up toward the end fails when you emphasize the fermatas. That orgasmic "Dulcissima" with its cadenza doesn't work if you stop just before it.
