My local church is quite small and doesn't have a choir, but we do have someone playing the keyboard (those who read these contributions regularly may note that I previously lived in a parish with no accompanist at all, and the music was even worse...
Sheet music
As result of my earlier awakening and because the dawn was later than I thought I was able to get ready and go outside. I rarely get a good view of a sunrise, mostly because I prefer to stay in bed until I have to get up, and perhaps I'm a little...

A bauble on a Christmas tree
