The more there is the more ordinary it becomes. Some of the most striking preludes I've played have been exciting one or two page toccatas or fugues, played on bright (but not especially loud) settings. It's more of an attention-getter that way to immediately get the congregations attention, distract them from their chatter long enough to say "something exciting is about to happen", but not long enough for them to start talking with each other about what it might be!   bruce cornely o o o __________ o o o ago (dean) ohs o o __________ o o

(back) Subject: Re: BritComs From: Vernon Moeller <vernonm@ccsi.com> Date: Fri, 06 Feb 1998 08:49:43 -0600   My wife and I have long been fans of Brit-Coms, as we call them. This year, our local PBS station has been showing "Mr Bean," starring Rowan Atkinson. Last year, they showed us "The Thin Blue Line," (my favorite) a sitcom about a British police station, "The Vicar," which is about a woman vicar in a small town (dare I say "village" or "hamlet"?), and "Murders Most Horrid," which isn't exactly a comedy, but it's amusing in a wry sort of way.     If you get a chance, watch "The Vicar," because sometimes they show the old lady who plays organ for their services - she's a hoot! Also, the vicar has an assistant named Alice who is 3 bricks shy of a load - she can be absolutely hysterical. For those of you with a bawdy sense of humor, there is an episode where the vestry stands around toasting the memory of their organist, who had just passed away, and who apparently led a very racy life when she was much younger.   Anybody know if the old organist is really playing, and on what?   BTW, "Keeping Up Appearances," "Are You Being Served?" and other Brit-Coms have numerous webpages on the WWW. The two I just mentioned include lots of photos and sound clips. You can even get some of Hyacinth singing - if you're in a masochistic mood.   \/\/\    
(back) Subject: Re: Multiple Preludes From: cremona84000@webtv.net (bruce cornely) Date: Fri, 6 Feb 1998 09:59:48 -0500   I once attended a Baptist church where their custom was a 20-minute prelude. The organist played about 15 minutes of straight hymns right out of the book, with only registration changes, and then played a 5-8 minute piece of good literature. People really enjoyed (me too!) the simplicity of hearing their favorite hymns simply played out of the book so that they were recognizable and so that they could quietly sing along. I think this is my favorite type of long prelude, unless, of course, the person is going to flat out play a recital. However, I don't think a recital is conducive to my (MY) preparation for worship.   bruce cornely o o o __________ o o o ago (dean) ohs o o __________ o o

Granted the style of the instrument does dictate what I will enjoy the most; and, ergo, thussly, I will probably play more literature of the period/style for which the instrument was designed. The Rieger sounds like it had problems of its own which might make it difficult for any literature (tracker having nothing to do with the problems!!!). Simple regulation or stop adjustments by a TRAINED PROFESSIONAL (of good reputation!) would probably solve most the problems. But don't blame it on the action. I've only played one Reiger (St. Vincent de Paul--Houston) and it was very nice, in spite of the room. When I lived in Houston, there seemed to be an unwritten rule of placeing wonderful organs in icky rooms, with a few exceptions (First Presbyterian had an A-S GDH in very nice acoustics). Things seem to be changing from what I hear. Houston seems to be turning into an organists paradise (if you can stand the heat--although the bar-b-q does make life much more tolerable!!)   bruce cornely o o o __________ o o o ago (dean) ohs o o __________ o o

I think the operative word here is "Adapting" the registration for what the composer intended. The composer probably had never played the instrument you are faced with. No one knows what they might have done-- and conjecture is useless and booooooooooring! All there are are notes on the page, a keyboard, and ranks of pipes. ANYTHING can be played musically anywhere (on a good pipe organ even if only a few ranks). You must simply forget what the composer intended, and offer something fresh and new, which is probably what the composer would do in the same situation. You might have to leave out a note or two, or make a few minor alterations here and there, but musical is always a possibility.   bruce cornely o o o __________ o o o ago (dean) ohs o o __________ o o

It will be a strident noise, sort of like hearing a cheap electronic in an auditorium with only one speaker, turned up REAL LOUD.   A properly voiced small instrument can, of course, play anything.   Regards,   Bob

Reginald Foort moved from England in 1951 and was still doing theater organ tours and recording in the U.S. for more than 20 years after World War II. He played in Rochester on the RTOS Wurlitzer 4/22 in December 1967 and wrote a book after that. It must have been someone else.

From time to time they send out demo cassette tapes of new music, and I can't TELL you how wonderful it is to HEAR the music, often played by the composer, before buying it. They don't send any portion of the score, but I have found that you can judge the difficulty very well just by hearing it. They stress that they are only demo tapes for the above purpose, the sound not being equalized from being recorded in different places. Even so, I have enjoyed just playing and listening to them apart from selecting new music. It is mostly contemporary composers like Robert Hobby, Albert Travis, Michael Burkhardt, James Biery, to name a few. These tapes have become one of my primary sources of new music. Writing this reminded me that I hadn't received any recently and I have moved - so I called and sure enough, they're still doing them, sent out one in January. She'll send me a few, she said. To clarify - by contemporary I mean currently writing. Many are exquisite arrangements based on familiar hymn tunes. Enjoy!! Karen Clifton  
(back) Subject: Talking during the music From: geriskip@juno.com (Geri T Schipper) Date: Fri, 6 Feb 1998 14:22:03 -0500   Dear Listers:   It is disturbing when the chatting seems to drown out the music. But, in fairness to some of the talkers, they are senior citizens who look forward to seeing friends at church on a once a week basis, and this is,perhaps, their only outing and being hard of hearing do not realize how loudly they are speaking. Having played in a church where the average age was seventy-two, you can imagine the noise. But, coming to church on Sunday mornings are very important to them and many of them are good " tithers" that help pay all salaries. Isn't one of the reasons we are playing each Sunday to use the talent God gave to us? And He will hear the music even if no one else does. Also, some of this loud talking goes on during the message from the pastor as well. So, organists do not suffer alone with this problem.   Geri ********************************************************* __Bye for now, Love, Geri, Mom or Sis__ *********************************************************   _____________________________________________________________________ You don't need to buy Internet access to use free Internet e-mail.

(back) Subject: Rutter reharmonizations From: Jeff Luttrell <jpluttrell@mindspring.com> Date: Fri, 6 Feb 1998 15:48:54 -0500 (EST)   Greetings from a long-time lurker.   Someone (sorry, it's long since deleted, and I don't remember who) a few digests back mentioned hymn reharmonizations by John Rutter. Does anyone have publisher information on these?   Regarding preludes/postludes - I am blessed in my current church. Before the organ prelude one of the youth goes to the pulpit and reads a scripture. This not only gives the teenagers experience in worship leadership, but it very effectively quiets down the congregation for the music to follow. Also, there is a group of at least twenty folks who gather every Sunday to listen to every note of the postlude. Although this is a relatively small percentage of the congregation, it is overwhelming support compared to others churches where I've played. Needless to say, it does motivate me to practice more! It also makes it much easier to maintain the attitude that the prelude is a true part of the worship service and deserving of all the careful preparation.   Sueda Luttrell Organist/Music Associate First Baptist Church Marietta, GA
