    I very liked it . How to sing well . What a courageous voice. It reminded me of Christmas songs , also romantic and festive.

    My Lodge sings an Opening Ode and a Closing Ode at every meeting. They are sung while the Deacons are attending to the Lesser Lights. We also sing 'Oh Canada' just after the Lodge has Closed. We also sing a single-verse 'Entrance Ode' in each degree, which is sung just as the candidate is brought into the Lodge. I still remember the effect hearing that singing had on me when I was brought into the Lodge at my Initiation! We have an organ but, unfortunately, no organist, so the singing is unaccompanied. In some ways, that is even more impressive!

    Lots of Odes here, during degrees, generally one for each time we move a candidate... if the deacons are moving, we're generally singing.

    Plus it's a different song in some jurisdictions. I have learned two songs for that point in the degrees. Gotta be careful I don't start belting out the other song I learned for that point.

    I also learned a song for Table Lodge, but I've heard the song used at festive board which is similar to Table Lodge but not tiled. Happy to meet, sad to part, happy to meet again, again, happy to meet again ...
