The Times they are a-changing

A reminder that today is the day in the Liturgical Calender when we change over from Common Time, which we've had since Imbolc, to March Time. As a result all our music is going to be somewhat livelier, and we're going to be doing a lot more processions. In April we'll be celebrating the spring by moving to Waltz Time. This is lovelier again, giving us a little skip in our step on every third beat.

In the Autumn we'll be moving into 7/8 time, which will leave everyone feeling edgy and nervous. And then, in Advent, into 9/8. If you want to know why, the answer is in Genesis (let the Reader understand).

  1. The Beaker Folk have a unique take on the yearly times and seasons, so unique in fact that nobody apart from a hardened druid would understand what you're on about :)
