I might be playing in an informal Ash Wednesday service and will have some freedom to pick my own music. Does anybody have suggestions for solo pieces? I don’t think of it as one with a lot of repertoire of its own. I’ll probably be playing about 3 brief solos at different points in the service, so would like the first to be more mournful and the others more uplifting, probably all somewhat meditative as I think of the start of Lent as a time of contemplation.
I have Stephanie Curcio’s “Bell Still My Soul” (Finlandia) that might do the job. Does anybody have other suggestions for lever-suitable arrangements already out there? I’ll probably do variations on a couple songs and hymns otherwise, maybe “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus,” which most people in this congregation would probably know and recognize.
