Thanks, I am looking forward to it although on the 22nd I might be in the mountains and I'll have to see a recorded version which will not be the same as watching you live. :))
Hi Dagmar. The group has the same number of ringers as last year but some different people. We lost one to pancreatic cancer this past summer. She died within 3 months of being diagnosed. But Melissa is still there doing her magic with those high bells. I love to watch her ring. We are playing again (with a smaller group) on 22 Dec. for the Christmas service. When I know more I'll let you know.
Sorry I didn't answer yesterday, but there wasn't much time, I had no problem getting into the service and was watching out for you even before you started to conduct. I saw you once or twice when the camaras changed their angle or swept through the room. I seemed to me that your choir was smaller this time than last, but that might have only been my impression. It was a wonderful treat being able to watch you live. Thanks again for letting me know and don't doubt to tell me again. :))
Thanks, Dagmar. I hoped you would be able to see it. I kept watching the clock and hoped you had seen my suggestion that maybe you should try early than I had originally thought. I was very proud of my group.
A lovely story and a lovely picture. I have just come back from your harvest festival and I enjoyed it very much, not only your bell choir and your beautiful performance of the Hymn of Joy but also the amazing fact that I was sitting in my room here in Madrid and at the same time I was watching you conducting (I think that's the right word :)) ) your bell choir. I feel very priviledged to have been able to accompany you and it was very nice to meet you in person again.
Thanks for a very unusual afternoon entertainment and for letting me know about it. :))
Thanks for trying, Hanne. It's amazing what there is on YouTube.
Actually Ardy, I tried to find the tune on YouTube but it's only to be found played on an old music machine and it isn't what I would like to send on!! Sorry, but I wanted it sung by a fine, crisp soprano, the one I've got in my head!!
Oh, Ank. Enjoying what you do is more important than any board. You are on lots of boards and seem to stay there too while I'm always slipping off if indeed I get there at all. Just have fun. Thanks for coming by.
An other beauty, I love it. Sorry Ardy I could not make the board.
Thanks for coming by, Barb. Just finished your last posting for yesterday! I see you were 23 seconds faster than I was on this one.
I'm enjoying Hanne's stories as well, Ardy - thanks for sharing! :-)
Thanks, RebaBe. I've been enjoying Hanne's stories too. You put up a really good time. Thank you.
Cute one ;-}
Thanks, Pat. I've been admiring your sunrise.
Gorgeous work thanks ...
Nothing to be sorry for that I can see, Hanne. You put up a much better time than I did for my own puzzle. I won't have the tune in my head all day because I don't know it. But if I did know it, I'm sure I would be humming it too. Now go help your Golden Boys. They are lost.
Sorry Ardy, usually I'm not very fast, my mouse is unsteady and my hand shakes. But this was very fine, and the pieces just went into their places all by themselves - almost!! Thanks so very much, now I'll hum that tune the rest of the day. It's SO lovely!
Translation: There came a gentleman - as sent from heaven - with an umbrella!
Explanation from Hanne9 aka Elfie: This is a song from just after Tivoli opened in the middle of the 1800's. A young lady is waiting for the fireworks to begin when it starts raining. When you consider the clothes they wore at the time, and the hats, it was a catastrophe really, BUT who came and saved her? A nice gentleman with an umbrella. So they watched the fireworks from under the umbrella, and afterwards he followed her home, and when they had come so far they had become engaged!!
