(back) Subject: Wichita Weekend at the Paramount From: MightyYKW@aol.com Date: Thu, 16 Oct 1997 05:30:11 -0400 (EDT)   Hi folks! De-lurking to ask if anyone on this list is planning to attend the Weekend at the Paramount in Wichita Oct. 31st-Nov.2nd? I am all set to go, and would certainly like to try and meet any net denizens who might also be there. Sounds like a really fun program, and I am looking forward to finally hearing the Parmount Wurlitzer the only proper way - live! Also wondering how their attendance will be considering so many other events, particulary the ATOS regional later in the month, which sold out at 400 max.   Cory Edelman

The so-called "Musicbot" will surf the Web to identify sites that use music and to count the number of people who visit them. Up till now, BMI has not initiated legal proceedings against potential copyright violators on the Web, but a company vice president says that "it stands to reason in the future that it will happen."

I am working on the above and seem to be having more difficulty than expected. First, one minor point. My copy is published by Gray and arranged for the Organ by Ferrari. Is this THE piece or are there other "arrangements" The pedal primarily mimics. I am frustrated by my fingering attempts even with catching the e with the lh in ms 4 and 5. Any brief suggestions?? Perhaps with a detached approach, I shouldn't worry?? Ronnymn@aol.com

I myself have used the Diane Bish arrangement (and have attempted the Fox arrangement, also...I like the Bish, better, tho)

My roommate and I are flying up from Dallas Saturday morning. You'll LOVE hearing the lovely monster in this hall!   Best Regards, Stan Guy---Dallas      
(back) Subject: Re: Rigaudon-Campra From: Ben Baldus <bbaldus@voyager.net> Date: Thu, 16 Oct 1997 23:23:18 -0400   There are several other "arrangements" of this baroque opera music. There is a decent one by E.Power Biggs in his "Treasury of Shorter Organ Classics" published by Mercury. There is another puffier one done by Virgil Fox which I believe was published by H.W. Gray (now Belwin). Both benefit from good contrasts in registration and tempo rubato in the cadences. A third is an arrangement by Arthur Harris of the Bigg's version used in an early 70s Columbia LP called "Music for Organ, Brass and Percussion".   Somewhere I have a record with EPB doing Rigaudon at St George's, NYC where the antiphonal possibilities of the organ (1958 Moller) allow Campra's music to come off with grand effect good effect.   Ben Baldus
