Have some time on your hands today? Write a Fugue!

Anglicans love Fugues, especially in D Minor. Might come in handy in the months ahead. Here's Lesson #1. Tip of the Tinfoil to JCW.

One of the funniest things I've ever seen! I'm such a Baroque junkie - this was ingenious.
A few minor points to keep in mind:
* Britney Spears is an anagram for Presbyterians.
* Bach and Handel were Lutherans. Handel moved to England but never officially 'crossed the Thames'.

Some of the best parts of Handel's Messiah are fugues: by his stripes we are healed, he trusted in God that he would deliver him, the fugue from the overture.

Way too funny!!!!!!

I actually like this version of Spears!

Always loved Bach, one of the things I miss hanging around Evangelicals is the over-use of the organ, St. A's had an excellent music director who gave a short concert frequently after the service (it didn't hurt that the organ was oversized for the building).

(Though more than Anglicans love classical styles and four-part harmonies {notably absent in the '82 hymnal} -- if you wondered into the HBW cafeteria you might see a group of punks with wild hair playing bridge and Mozart or Bach on the boombox).

Ok BB, no peeking, what does THIS refer to?
(Please don't ban me for this).

That Al is one Weird guy. ;-)

Love the "Allen Ginsberg" and "Bob Neuwirth" lookalikes in the background.
