Fall 2020 Ringing season brought with it all new things.

We recorded as much as possible to provide music for worship services during our hour long rehearsals for all of the choirs. We did not start rehearsals till the end of October. Some recordings were done in one or two rehearsals. The ringers were great about learning the music in such a short time. We didi know if we would meet or who could meet week to week but we did it

. You can hear us during the following services. 

If you missed it - you can find the recorded services at Emanuel's youtube page
