This weekend, we went back to Ardent Studios to finish up recording.We worked on eight songs, about an hour on each song. Very repetitive and very tiring. But Latch (Jason Latshaw), our mixer and Producer, wouldn't settle for anything but excellence. So, we did each song until it was right.
I love my Worship Team. I love being the alto section leader. They make me smile more often than not, sometimes by just thinking about them. The Worship Ministry is so much a part of my and Sound Man's life that I can't imagine life without them. My blog is just a collection of glimpses into my life, so I wanted to give you one of those glimpses into my weekend spent with some of my favorite people in the world.
Getting ready to sing, Saturday morning. Kim, our director. Sorry for the ghost. Don't know what my camera was doing. Kim directed us last year, too. She is SO good. She and I share directing responsibilities...she directs the choir one weekend, and I direct the next. But for such detailed work as we were doing yesterday and today, as well as the concert, level headed-ness was a must. Not one of my strong points. It IS one of Kim's, though. She is one of the ones who make me smile.
My crazy altos...I heart them!
Back at the studio, we got ready to work again. Well, at least most of us did. These guys have made me spit diet coke more than once, particularly the two on either end.
The sops (short for sopranos) take a break.As do some of the altos. Getting a little too comforable, don't you think?
They have beautiful voices!
And, like last year, here's a snippet of what we did. This is at the end of the last song that will be on the CD, "Unstained Blood," but it's part of the old hymn, "Oh, the Blood of Jesus". It's a little grainy sounding...I think my camera does that when it starts to get too full a memory, and this vid is two minutes long...a little long for my camera. And sorry that all you hear is my loudness. If this sounds a bit slow and mellow, don't be fooled. It's at the end of a jammin' song. I wish I had recorded some of "Unshakable," the title track. Mmm-hmm. Rockin'. Anyway, here's your snippet of the day...
I count it a great privilege to be a part of this team! Thanks for walking through my weekend with me!
