Bell Cleaning

January 15,2017, memorial performance of Grazioso by Arnold Sherman. to the glory of God and in loving memory of Pat Fancy. Pat was a longtime and dedicated member of the Emmanubells. She died on December 21, 2016, and her service was held at Emmanuel on December 27. Since the Emmanubells were unable to play at her funeral, it is fitting to offer this piece in honour of her service to God and our church.
