Saved from heresy!

I almost made a huge error in my Jesus CD.  One of my songs, "It's All Good" is basic Christology put to music, and I had some of my Christology confused.  Basically "It's All Good" wasn't.  I was chatting with Fr. Shawn Tunink (henceforth referred to as my Theological Advisor), when he made somewhat of a side comment about the "Christological adverbs", and I realized that I wrote one of my lines very wrong!  Yikes!  Nothing like the potential of having your CD banned by ecclesiastical authorities. Eek!  Fortunately, I was able to go back and re-record that line this morning, before the burning at the stakes commenced.  Just in time!  Thanks Fr. Shawn!

Fr. Shawn also saved me from a rather embarrassing grammatical error in "One Man."  Not nearly as big of a deal (if you ask me), but good to get that error fixed too.  Thanks Fr. Shawn!

I also fixed two wrong words in "Master of Disguise". Minor, but the sentence didn't make sense as I sang it (actually, on that one I just got confused and sang the wrong words)

After that, we basically sat and talked about the vision for the Advent CD and narrowed down which songs we plan to record.  Other than the 5 originals that I will have on the project, the seven others that we decided on were "O Come O Come Emmanuel", "O Come Divine Messiah," "Night of Silence," "Advent Hymn," "Still, Still, Still", "On That Holy Mountain," and the first verse of "O Little Town of Bethlehem", which is my favorite Christmas eve morning song (the end of Advent).   This is not yet set in stone, but I think this sounds like a good line up to me.

At the end of the day we recorded the opening track for the Advent CD, "Get Ready," which is based on the readings from the First Sunday of Advent (admittedly a little odd recording this on a Friday in Lent).  Sounds solid so far.

The other originals for the Advent CD are "Mary Had No Y" (see previous blog post), "Benedictus" (a setting of the Canticle of Zechariah, and forms a "companion" song to my "Magnificat" song from the "Saints" album), "Voice in the Wilderness" (you need to have a John the Baptist song on an Advent project), and "Generations"--which sets the geneology of Jesus (according to Matthew's Gospel) to music.  What strange stuff I use as source material.  We haven't touched these songs yet.  We'll get to them in the June recording session.

David and his wife Teresa invited me to join them for dinner with their family, and it was absolutely delightful.  Wonderful people, those Smiths.  And it was nice just to sit and chat.

Tomorrow we might work on a few tweaks, but I think everything is sounding pretty darn good.  We might have caught everything that David would need me for.

We will film a video for the Kickstarter campaign tomorrow.  More on that to come.

I am very thankful to God for this opportunity to record and that he has kept me in good voice and good spirits throughout the week.  I am blessed.

Fr. Kent
