Last Fall, the Mark Street United Church Biblical drummers received an invitation to drum in the Warsaw ON United Church Anniversary Service. Surprised yet delighted, they accepted - joyfully.
For more than a month, this group of 10-12 drummers, male and female, practised. In the actual service, they accompanied all five hymns sung to celebrate this occasion. Here are the patterns they used, offered for you to try.
