As we didnt have an organist at St C’s today, a member of the congregation offered to bring his accordian. I have to confess that I was a little unsure, having heard him play sea shanties and drinking songs when we were on Iona last year. However, it was either that or nothing so I said yes.
What a joy it turned out to be! Who would have thought it? Heiko (who also happens to be German and probably hasnt heard most of our hymns and mass setting) romped through them bringing pathos to the slow ones and jollity to the fast ones. Everyone sang like linties and smiled too. It was just great. We’ve booked him again for the 6 August. I can’t wait!
