All contemporary--no organ.   Our festival worship service at 10:30 looks like this: * Prelude: Praise songs (we do this every week, a collection of 5, sung with piano and guitar * Opening Hymn: LW126 At The Lamb's High Feast We Sing * Sermon Hymn: LW139 Jesus Lives, The Victory's Won * Voluntary: Undecided * Closing Hymn: LW447 Song Of Praise The Angels Sang * Postlude: Toccata and Fugue in d (J.S. Bach)   Maundy Thursday's going to be pretty straight: Typical liturgy with communion/Lord's Supper hymns.   Good Friday will be Tenabrae. Seven last words of Christ. I'm told there'll be 9 hymns, but I don't have them yet! We have a 77-year-old interim pastor who occasionally waits until the last minute. But, hey, that's life.   I'm also checking to see if LW126 is the right number, because we're singing that one on Maundy Thursday as well. I wonder if it's LW127 (Jesus Christ Is Risen Today). Hmmm.   A blessed Easter to all of you.

Especially singing "Pie Jesu" for Jesus! We really want to say of Jesus, "Grant him eternal rest"?   I realize, Steve, that you don't pick these things, and that sometimes we have to endure certain traditions. Perhaps the reason this always gets a rise out of me is the optimistic hope that someone will be able to explain to me why a "Requiem" on Good Friday -- especially in a church, and even more especially during a liturgy or devotion -- is appropriate.   Ken Sybesma

Music will be performed on 5 keyboards, 2 of which of the el cheapo version, the other 3 more professional. I'm doing this from memory after a rehearsal which lasted until 10pm last nite so I don't have the composers names and the order may not be accurate.   Prelude: In the Easter Garden 5 keyboards, 3 organ, 1 piano, 1 piano/strings Opening: Jesus Is Risen, sung by the adult choir, hand chimes and 1 keyboard set on grand piano voice Hymn: Christ The Lord Is Risen Today, 4 keyboards on piano voice one on organ voice (that would be mine *grin*) Youth rock band number, don't know, don't care what it is. Offeratory: Lead me to Calvary 5 keyboards Vocal Solo: He's Alive using tape accomp. Hand chimes Easter Medley Choir anthem: exerpts from cantata What a Celebration using tape accomp. Female quartet accapella, title escapes me Invitational time will be accomp. by 2 keyboards on string voices Hymn: He Lives with keyboards same as first Hymn Postlude: Victory In Jesus 5 keyboards, 2 piano voice 3 organ voice, mine will have the volume at maximum!

The people who design the programs understand how a child learns, and the learning environment. It is about teaching music, not just teaching a song to sing two Sundays from now.   --Shirley

I played and conducted in an American Baptist Church for about 15 years. It was when I attended an American Baptist Convention-sponsored music conference in Green Lake, WI, (not far from where Tom Gregory lives) that I met people in the Children's Choir division who were Southern Baptist. It was there I saw firsthand the materials designed and used by Southern Baptists. Those I met were mostly from St. Louis/Kansas City/Joplin areas. While I don't know what worship is like in their churches, and while I have no idea about their personal theologies, I sure do know about their children's choir materials.   After attending this conference for a couple of years, I was asked to help design, set up, and run some of the activities for the children's choir portion of the conference. I helped out for about three years.   That's where the education comes in.   --Shirley

Hard to work at what I'm supposed to be working at when his music fills the entire church building. Have found myself more than once scurrying up the steps, scrambling into a pew to listen to him practice before the piece ends.   --Shirley   At 16:12 04/07/98 -0400, you wrote: >Just interested in what some other organists are playing on Easter >Sunday. > >I'm doing "Trumpet Tune" by Purcell for the prelude, >Widor's IV Toccata for the Postlude, >Children's Choir is singing during the offertory, >First Hymn is "Christ the Lord Is Risen Today" >Second Hymn: "Easter People, Raise Your Voices" >Third Hymn: "He Lives" >Communion Music: I haven't decided yet. > >I think that I and many other people would like to know what someone else >is playing. > >Well, I'd better go practice. > > >Jason Comet >bombarde8@juno.com > |\ > | \ >O > >_____________________________________________________________________ >You don't need to buy Internet access to use free Internet e-mail. >Get completely free e-mail from Juno at http://www.juno.com >Or call Juno at (800) 654-JUNO [654-5866] > > >"Pipe Up and Be Heard!" >PipeChat: A discussion List for pipe/digital organs & related topics >HOMEPAGE : http://www.pipechat.org >List: mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org >Administration: mailto:admin@pipechat.org >Subscribe/Unsubscribe: mailto:requests@pipechat.org > >

(back) Subject: Re: Taize? (Was Re: Palm/Passion Sunday at Trinity) From: SCoonrod <SCoonrod@aol.com> Date: Wed, 8 Apr 1998 18:57:26 EDT   Shirley,   Some of the music from our service was from the Renaissance period. IMO the idea is that the "songlets" are supposed to become a litany of sorts, and become a vehicle for prayer. Our service included several "songlets" that did border on the renewal, but they all had musical AND TEXTUAL integrity, and with all the instrumental descants (written out and improvised) it was quite a few steps above the type of thing we do at Trinity during Communion.   Not to mention the 600 votive candles and the icons and the veneration of the cross!   I am going to get the publisher and the title of the book we used since Bruce C. asked for this, but it will be after Sunday!!   RandyT

Speller" <jlspeller@stlnet.com> Date: Wed, 8 Apr 1998 18:13:26 -0500 (CDT)   Shirley asks,   >What's Taize?   Taize (pronounced Tay-zay) is a Protestant monastery in France, famed for its simple communal life, spirituality and music. Their music is not exactly traditional, nor exactly CCM either. I would describe it as being in a folksong idiom more than anything else. Some of it is quite interesting, and both traditional and CCM-oriented church musicians seem to like at least a few of the Taize hymns. Some of my favorites are by Jacques Berthier, who wrote among other things a lovely setting of "Ubi caritas et amor". The new supplement to the Episcopal *Hymnal of 1982*, called *Wonder, Love and Praise* has an Agnus Dei setting by Berthier (#872.)   John.

I know a lot of the people and am friends with a few who are involved in the music wing of the BSSB (Baptist Sunday SChool Board).   My wife (a children's minister since 1970) believes BSSB age-level books on teaching children's music are the best anywhere. And even, when she taught "Music for the Elementary Teacher" at the univeristy level, she still used these books because they give some wonderful overviews how children learn.   If those of differing denominations can overcome their prejudice toward the Baptists in general, they will find a wealth of great published materials.   Just throwing my two cents into the mix, I am,   Darryl by the Sea

I went to the beach in Mass. last Tuesday, March 31, the temp. was 75 there, and hit 90 in Boston. We had four days of summer! The first time I ever was on a New England beach in swimsuit and sunscreen in March! Now the rain is back, and the rivers are overflowing again. Happy Easter!  
(back) Subject: Re: Taize? (Was Re: Palm/Passion Sunday at Trinity) From: OHMER72 <OHMER72@aol.com> Date: Thu, 9 Apr 1998 00:17:10 EDT   For those who would like to know more about Taize community, you might want to contact GIA publications in Chicago - they have an 800# which i can't recall at this time but will post upon finding it.   Because thousands of young people visit the community each summer, it was decided that a style of music needed to be "come up with" that would fit the worship needs and allow maximum participation. Jacques Berthier, an organist in Paris, I believe, became the composer - he was friends with Brother Roger (head monk). All music which he composed has been published by GIA, I believe.   The music refrains for the most part are in Latin, while cantors sing the verses in various languages. There are several recording] available, too, from GIA, and these, while exhilarating, also give you an idea of the flow of the music. This is contemporary music which has had profound influence on thousands of young people over the years.   Whilst serving in Bartlesville, OK, it was my privilege to bring this music into the worship of the congregation - and it spread to the Presbyterian church where a dear friend and teacher was minister of music, and then on to several other congregatiions. this is music which has high integrity, quick learning, and peaceful yet excitng worship.   The basic form of worship is taken from the monastic offices (matins, vespers, etc.). communion is also observed, with each denomination going to their own particular area to receive, thus not mixing that particular theology and allowing everyone to participate and receive.   Unfortunately, Jacques Berthier died a while back.   Hope this sheds some light on the subject. I know there must be others out there who know a heck of a lot more about than I do   Now, to keep all this relevant to pipechat.....the organ is used throughout the liturgies. There was an article on Taize in the American Organist or Music magazine years ago. Does anyone on the list have that issue or remember it?   steveohmer happyhappyhappyeastereveryone
