Good Friday

I 've just listened to the St.Matthew Passion by Bach. A ritual I observe every year. This year the Passion was sung in Dutch, which is strange for I always heard it in German, but the translation was reasonably good.

I waited till Good Friday was almost over, because I knew what you would be doing... do you like the Passion in Dutch, or do you like it better in German? Wishing you a wonderful Easter or Resurrection Day!

I hope you had a good Easter. Nearer to Heaven reminds me of the hymn Nearer my God to thee.
