Do you think the intermission will be necessary? I don't take these pieces at Newman-esque speeds, but I'm not sure if the halves will be long enough to merit an intermission. >>   Is some organization selling refreshments? If so, the Altar Society (or whichever) will be grateful of the interval to make additional sales. If not? How many cups of coffee are you planning to have beforehand?

Some of course not so appropriate at a memorial service.

We in the liturgical churches prepare for the coming of the baby Messiah.

Moyer" <kmoyer@marauder.millersv.edu> Date: Wed, 22 Oct 1997 23:26:13 -0400 (EDT)     "Vom Himmel hoch" is Martin Luther's chorale for a Christmas Eve family drama. It is most certainly for Christmas, not Advent. See the handbooks to _Lutheran Book of Worship_ or _Lutheran Worship_, the books of the ELCA and Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, resepctively. The discussions there are excellent on this hymn. Karl E.
