The following post is a review of the film adaptation in comparison to the book. You can read my review of the book on its own here. With equal measures of action and comedy and brilliant musical numbers, Favreau directs this already enjoyable story to create an upbeat adventure with real style.
This blog catalogues the life and times of Christian Music Ministries. Ever wondered what life is like in the CMM Office? What is Roger working on at the moment? What are our hopes, dreams and prayer requests? It was a joy to have quite a big CMM team for the day, enabling us to perform the musical to live accompaniment.
Annie led the 'orchestra', which comprised herself on piano, Alan on drums, Cliff on bass, Marilyn on flute, and Gemma along with her friend Emma on clarinet.
While Annie was organising the band, Helen trained the choir. They did not need much training at all - they read music superbly and picked things up so quickly. Sadly, Sharon had lost her voice, so we weren't able to use her as a soloist, but Gemma filled in brilliantly, singing solo alongside Barrie and Julie and a couple of local singers whose arms were twisted mercilessly!
It was also a pleasure to work alongside the minister, Kim, who was full of life, and completely insistent that she couldn't sing.
She did take her place in the audience though, and introduced the performance with great enthusiasm. The following morning some of the team stayed and helped lead the morning service at Horbury Methodist. Helen led the service and Annie preached.
The church were spending one of their very last Sundays in the village hall before moving into their own beautifully renovated premises. There they were joined by Roger and Mary, Ann, Barrie and wonderful host Marion for the third Barnabas music week of the year.
We had a terrific week. Annie led the orchestra which was small but perfectly formed for much of the week - Maurice, Ron and Sally on violin and Viv on piano accordion.
Helen worked with the choir, who were excellent as ever. It was great to have so many different soloists to choose from, as well as some brilliant narrators.
Besides the musical and the Bible teaching and ministry, there were a couple of other real highlights in the week. On the Tuesday evening it was a real honour to be joined by Joe King, a singer-songwriter from Leeds.
Joe had been going through a hard time, so it was great to welcome him and give him the opportunity to perform and minister to the guests. One of Joe's real strengths is the ministry song - songs that come from God's perspective and speak deeply into people's hearts and minds through the Holy Spirit.
Then the other highlight was introducing the group to some of the new material in the Songs of Christmas that had just been brought out. We had a lot of fun teaching and singing different songs from the book. The performance of Barnabas on the Friday evening was to a packed out room, and it went very well indeed.
Well done to all of the wonderful soloists and thanks to the team for working so hard during the week. The team preparing for morning worship Anticipation in the room!The Jolly Roger, Nottingham, United Kingdom. likes · 14 talking about this · were here.
