Let us put by some hour of every day for holy things...
Think on th' eternal home,
The Saviour left for you;
Think on the Lord most holy, come
To dwell with hearts untrue:
So shall ye tread untired His pastoral ways,
And in the darkness sing your carol of high praise.

Yesterday afternoon my husband, youngest son, and I went to a music recital where students of my middle son and his wife were performing. Hunter had asked us to attend to hear one of his young students performing two movements of the Bach double violin concerto with him. After the students had finished, to our surprise and pleasure, Hunter and Kattie played two violin/piano duets. It was the first time in quite a long while I'd had the delight of hearing Hunter in performance and the first time in years I'd heard him do this particular piece, Tango Jalousie by Jacob Gade. What a treat! I wish I'd had a video camera along. But I didn't, so I'll post a youtube video by another performer so you can at least hear the composition. For 16 years I had the daily privilege of listening to Hunter practice the violin and then he grew up on me, and I still miss his playing.
