A (very) little humor

by Augsburg Fortress

We asked for your best anecdotes or jokes related to church music. The old inbox isn't exactly flooded so far! So I'll start with the letter A and keep going until someone sends me some better material. And yes, that's a threat!

When you're 16 measures into the piece and realize you took too fast a tempo.

To play with a divinely beefy tone.

Accompanied by knee-slapping.

A composition that you regret playing.

A series of notes not intended by the composer, yet played with an "I meant to do that" attitude.

A musical entrance that is somewhere in the vicinity of the correct pitch.
