(back) Subject: Re: Disguised Tunes/Copyrights, etc. From: "Bob, Diane & Jeff Kinner" <rkinner@one.net> Date: Mon, 01 Sep 1997 08:34:04 -0400   One list member had the right idea: why not publish a collection? In the process, all copyrights would have to be cleared, those writing the arrangements could get some (probably small) reward for their efforts, and there would finally be one "fun" collection amidst the racks of the old workhorses. Anyone experienced in this sort of thing? I will buy the first copy! Bob -- Bob Kinner AA8FH rkinner@one.net Home Page: http://w3.one.net/~rkinner/

(back) Subject: Information Sought From: David Scribner <david@blackiris.com> Date: Mon, 1 Sep 1997 09:53:55 -0500   I have asked to present a program in October for our AGO Chapter here Pensacola covering the uses of the Internet for Church Musicians. I know that various other Chapters have already done programs similar to this and am looking for input about what should be covered in a session such as this.   As of right now I am thinking of covering Internet mailing lists and Organ/Church Music related Web Sites. Besides the two Organ mailing lists I am aware of mailing lists such as the Choral-List and I know that there are various denominational lists such as the Anglican-L, etc. However, I don't know the addresses for all of these lists. I would appreciate people forwarding to me, PRIVATELY, information about any of these lists, including information about how to subscribe to them.   For the Web section, I am thinking on concentrating on the listings on The Northeast Organist site, which seems to have some of the best links that I have found. But again I would appreciate getting information about any other Web Sites that could be of interest.   Beside these two areas is there anything else I should cover?   Once I get all of this information together I will post it on our Chapter's new Web Site which will be introduced on September 23rd at our 40th Anniversary Dinner and Member Recital. The address of this new Web Site will be posted to the lists on that day.   Again, please reply to me PRIVATELY so as to keep the traffic down on these lists. All of the information received will be made available via the Web Site and hopefully other Chapters can use it for the basis of similar programs.   David Scribner Executive Committee Pensacola Chapter, AGO   ********************************** David Scribner Black Iris Consulting 4775 Balmoral Drive Pensacola, FL 32504-9174 850-478-9635 - Voice 850-476-0711 - Fax david@blackiris.com

Some of the recollections did come close to offending. "Did they actually do this during a service?" I think it's a great idea, (maybe because I was one of the ones who mentioned it), but please be careful.   Thanks. Kathi

I have added links to local groups (AGO, ect) but the pages are not up yet. I did add an active chat room. Access my page at Geocities to see. For a chat to operate there must be more than one person logged on to my page. Try it and let me know if it works. I'm especially interested to know if you can get it from AOL. You must have Java capability in your browser. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Clarice Jane Snyder snyder@skyenet.net Music Web pages---- http://www.geocities.com/Vienna/2059 and http:/www.geocities.com/Vienna/2050/michiana.html   Some ancestry surnames: Applegate, Blake, Bogard, Bottles, Brown, Crecelius, Davis, Drake, Engleman, Feller, Greer, Hamman, Heishman, Holsclaw, Hottel, Keller, Litsey, Pate, Powers, Snapp, Windell, VanPelt, Vaughn, Wiseman (some others left out). ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My theatre organ background has served me well in church music. :)   I don't remember any of the Trio Tom mentions, except the motif, which I hereby freely offer to anybody who's interested. (See below.) I would, however, be interested in what you all have done with it, the treatment you've given it, the reactions from choir and congregation.   I, too, have been concerned with how much "fun" I have on the bench. I would hope that whatever music I use, whether it's traditional repertoire or not, that it would always be worshipful and/or inspirational.   Please use the PPFF (Plopplopfizzfizz, not pianopianoforteforte... necessarily....) in that vein.   Original theme: Bb F C F D D Eb F Eb D C (all quarter notes, D-->Eb are sixteenths [or more likely D Eb F are eighth-note triplets] , Eb--->D are eighths, common time).   My variation on it: Bb A Bb F C Bb C F D Eb F Eb D C Bb (all eighth notes except the last note, which is a quarter note, common time).   Heeheehee... I'll be anxious to see/hear what you all come up with! :)   --Shirley  
(back) Subject: FUNERAL FOR DIANA, Princess of Wales From: "Richard Scott-Copeland" <organist@interalpha.co.uk> Date: Mon, 1 Sep 1997 20:50:26 +0100       ---------- > From: basset3@warwick.net <u1005593@warwick.net> > To: pipechat@pipechat.org > Subject: Funeral for Diana, Princess of Wales > Date: 01 September 1997 20:46 > > Do any U.K. listers have advanced access (perhaps through personal > connections) to what music will be played for the funeral of Diana, > Princess of Wales at Westminster on Saturday?   From Richard Scott-Copeland organist@interalpha.co.uk > The music for the funeral is apparently more carefully guarded than the very Crown Jewels themselves. All usual contacts have drawn a complete blank. Personally, I would think that she would have the hymn "I vow to thee, my country". She had this at her wedding. My wife sang it solo in church last night. Afterwards, we just broke down and wept.   I should state that we are all absolutely devastated with the news of this terrible tragedy. To be honest to you all, I just can't believe it. It just hasn't sunk in. Playing the organ for two masses, yesterday was the most difficult thing I have ever done, even having played for thousands of funerals of people known to me, old and young alike, over twenty years as a church organist I have never been in the situation before when it has been impossible to see the music not ten inches in front of my face, through the tears.   May I ask you all for your thoughts and prayers and support for all of us in England, and for the Princess, her chauffeur and companion, Dodi Al Fayed.   May they rest in peace.   Richard Scott-Copeland  
(back) Subject: Re: FUNERAL FOR DIANA, Princess of Wales From: sheridan.mascall@visionet.com.au (Sheridan Mascall) Date: Tue, 02 Sep 1997 07:18:47 +1000   On Sunday afternoon Sydney time, we just happened to put the television on and watched the news break about the accident. At that time she was still alive in the hospital, and it was while we were sitting there that they announced that she had succumbed to her injuries and died.   Friends of ours showing up at the front door for coffee found me in tears too.   I'm no Royalist - but I am so dreadfully sorry for the unbelievably rough time that poor lovely woman has had. All she wanted was a bit of a private life and someone to love and to love her. And in their quest to ensure that none of this could be so, the paparazzi effected her death. I have been very, very angry about this for a long time, and never so much as now. Even now, the entire journalistic industry is milking the story for all it is worth.   My thoughts and prayers are with her children, who have also been through so much and really should not have had to face this.   I meant to write this post earlier. My deep and warm condolences to all those Listfriends who this tradegy has touched.   ~Sheridan~
