Hello, and welcome this week’s Mood and Music Monday!
Mood and Music Monday is a weekly meme I’ve started, wherein I’ll post a song and talk about how it relates to my day/week, as well as a few other things. (And, in case anyone’s wondering, this meme has no relation to Lauren’s [from Always Me] “Music Mondays.”) Feel free to participate and to leave a link to your posts down in the comments!
Here’s the update for this week:
SONG(S) OF THE WEEK
What are you listening to? Great and Holy Lent just started for the Orthodox Christians, and I decided to give up secular music this year. So, instead, I’m listening to church hymns. The hymn above is “Now the Powers of Heaven” (a hymn from the Presanctified Liturgy) by the Moscow Sretensky Monastery Choir. I believe this arrangement is composed by Grigory Lvovsky, who just so happens to be one of my favorite four-part church composers. This video leaves me breathless every time.
What are you reading? I finally finished Nevernight! (Yaaay!) I also started RoseBlood; I’m only around 40 pages in, so we’ll see where it goes.
What are you drinking? Kombucha, water, and, because it’s raining where I am, we’re making tea! 😀
Any goals for this week? Staying alive this week–and for the next seven/eight weeks in general, to be honest. Lent means more services, which is wonderful, but, when you have homework and beta reading to do, things can get stressful really quickly. I’m balancing a lot this week, and I hope to do it successfully.
How about you?
