Sunday Set List

by nick on November 30th, 2009

This idea is inspired by Fred McKinnon’s weekly “Sunday Set Lists”.

I keep meaning to post my setlists from Sunday’s worship service and give a little writeup about it. Eventually PraiseTools will tweet it and help a bit with the recaps.

So here’s the list, with some thoughts:

  1. Open The Eyes of My Heart this one is always a bit strange for me. I’m never really sure how everyone else likes it. I like it, but I tend to spend more time in the bridge/chorus than I feel others would. I did venture a bit with the melody on the chorus. As in 2 or 3 notes.
  2. Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee our first officially unofficial Christmas song. I am not sure why it is a Christmas song to me, but it is. We’ll keep doing this one past the Christmas season. The arrangement was a little bland, and needs work. We did it once last year.
  3. Silent Night served as the offertory, so we played through once without singing. It went well, but we had some issues with the piano / guitar chords matching. My fault, I need to keep a better grasp on that stuff. I don’t think we had any (vocal) harmony either.
  4. Fairest Lord Jesus went better than it did at practice. I had a really rough time with the chords and lyrics on Tuesday because they were on separate pages. A little hand-written chords and it all worked out. I felt pretty nervous about it, but it seemed go okay.
  5. You Said (special). This was strange. We don’t do special songs very often, and with in ear monitors I can’t hear if anyone sings. I was super nervous and what was in my head didn’t come out at all how I’d hoped. It was just Laura and me with my guitar. We may use it in the future. This was the last song before the sermon.
  6. Hosanna. Always a good song, everyone likes it. Becki thought she played well on drums, and I would agree. She does well on that song, even when I don’t. We didn’t repeat the chorus a second time at the end, and everyone caught the cue from me to go to the ending.

So that was our music on Sunday. I didn’t hear any complaints. My biggest issues (besides a lack of skill) is being unable to hear the congregation. I can hear the team pretty well, but that’s about it. I’ve got plans for that, but it will be a while.
