I know the reasons for (and against) singing only advent hymns during Advent. At our church last year, we only sang Chmas carols during our Carol Sing and on Chmas eve, that was pretty much it--and of course, I heard the grumblings. As I always say, I don't pick em, I just play em. Anyway the survey: How many of you in the more liturgical traditions sing only advent hymns and how many of you go ahead and sing Chmas carols throughout the Advent season? Secondly, do any of you in the freer traditions sing only advent hymns? I will attempt to keep good records of your responses and summarize them after a few days. We all (probably) will know the whys and why-nots for either course, so I'm only looking for the actual practices in your particular situations. Peace to you all.   --Neil

Anything of importance is going to require consideration. If you are going to have a good air-conditioning system, room must be made for the equipment. A less efficient and cheaper system could be installed to take up less space, actually using the same idea as the electronic.... window units all around the church. Fortunately, no one would put up with this. Unfortunately, there does not seem to be a like committment to music.   Perhaps the need for more space in the vestry is a blessing in disguise. It is providing the motivation to move the pipe organ to a better place in the room. Some space is going to have to be sacrificed, but the results will be worth it. A good organ builder should be consulted to provide workable options for your unique situation.   bruce cornely ~:~:~ rohrschok8@webtv.net gainesville, florida

BUT ... we DO sing Christmas carols from Dec. 24th thru Jan. 6th, and some of the Lady carols on Candlemas (Feb. 2nd). We have a strict rota so that they ALL get sung at LEAST once during that period.   Advent at St. Matthew's is VERY much about the Second Coming and the Last Judgment and only secondarily about Christ's coming at Christmas. Not sure if I agree entirely, but that's the way it is.   Cheers,   Bud   N Brown wrote:   > Friends: consider this an unofficial, unscientific survey.
