Good Friday

Happy Good Friday. We attended church tonight to recognize the death of Christ our Lord. Our church music director is also artist in residence at Colorado College and brought in an orchestra tonight to perform Faure's Requiem. Here are some images I made for the music program web site from the performance:








I didn't know anything about this work until tonight when I did some reading about it and ran across this comment on the piece by the composer himself: "It has been said that my Requiem does not express the fear of death and someone has called it a lullaby of death. But it is thus that I see death: as a happy deliverance, an aspiration towards happiness above, rather than as a painful experience." - Appropriate words considering Good Friday leads to Easter and the resurrection of Jesus -- our salvation!

Happy Easter everyone! We're off to photograph a couple hundred kids with the Easter bunny as a gift to our neighborhood association tomorrow. Drop on by!
