(back) Subject: Postludes From: rnickel@itol.com Date: Thu, 18 Jun 1998 09:25:17 -0500   There are a few here that I enjoy playing and don't require much work:   David German. "Festive Trumpet Tune" - ABA style, modulates from F major to F# major. Fred Bock Music Company, BG0920. Written for the dedication of Calvary Church's 205-rank Moller.   John A. Behnke. "Variations on 'Kum Ba Yah'" - three movements, with the third entitled "Someone's Singing Lord." MorningStar, MSM-10-893.   Alice Jordan. "Hymns of Grateful Praise" - organ voluntaries, etc., on well-known hymntunes; includes postludes on "Christ the Lord Is Risen Today," "Come, Thou Almighty King," and "O Worship the King." Broadman Press, Code 4570-43.   I'll stop there for now.   Bob Nickel

From: "Robert Eversman" <highnote@mhtc.net> Date: Thu, 18 Jun 1998 10:50:55 -0500   There is a short collection called Album of Loud Voluntaries for organ by Leon Boellmann which are very effective and not hard to work up. Esp. nice is the one in G Major. The publisher is Edwin Ashdown Limited, England (E.A. 36607).   Glad this topic came up. Keep the suggestions coming, I'm taking notes!   Robert Eversman highnote@mhtc.net    
(back) Subject: Books From: <Myosotis51@aol.com> Date: Thu, 18 Jun 1998 12:25:34 EDT   Here's a toughie, for all you church organists:   What is the *single* most important music book in your collection? The one that you pull out most Sundays?   I'm building my collection of appropriate music, and I live far enough out in the sticks that the local music stores present me with a list of titles and say "We can order anything - but you have to take it." I need suggestions to order!!   I'm fairly skilled on keyboards, but really just learning pedal technique, so please keep that in mind......even fast quarter notes on the pedals throw me right now. Please keep the complicated stuff on the manuals! I'm currently using a Dover publication of Handel's keyboard works, manuals only, and a nice collection of other Baroque pieces.   The church's organ is a Hammond 820, c. 1986, with drawbars, tabs, and presets. It has Leslie and Reverb.... I have the original owner's manual, and I'm having fun with it.   So...... what is the one book you can't live without?   Thanks in advance, Vicki Ceruti

(back) Subject: Re: Books From: cremona84000@webtv.net (bruce cornely) Date: Thu, 18 Jun 1998 12:43:27 -0400   Vicki, The most used book of organ music I have ever purchased is Wedding Music Part I (concordia). It has music of almost all styles which are appropriate for weddings, funerals, and general service music. It has introduced me to many larger works. ALL of the music contained within is easily accessible. My second choice is 80 Chorale Preludes of the 17 and 18 Centuries (Ed. Keller, I think). This volume as well has introduced me to larger works. All within is top quality music. Even though I have disposed of almost all of my chorale prelude music, I still pull this volume out for weddings, funerals, services and just for relaxation. It is especially good if you are trying to get used to an unequal temperament.   bruce o h s __________ a g o cornely o o __________ o o ............. cremona84000@webtv.net .............   A dog teaches a boy fidelity, perseverence, and to turn around three times before lying down. --Robert Benchley

Three volumes that I know of, maybe more by now, published by Lorenz. Not the greatest pieces in the world, but some nice short, not-too-difficult toccatas, and nicely condensed settings of the Overture to Die Meistersinger as well as Gaudeamus Igitur (Academic Festival Overture).   \/\/\

Volumes 5 (medium compositions) and 6 (longer selections) are particularly effective and most are sight readable. There are some interesting surprises in Vol. 6!   -- Roger

All of the fun people will be in Denver next week. (There's still room for you). The week after that the people who weren't fortunate to go to OHS will be at the AGO convention in Denver. So prepare for a couple of weeks of slow airtime. Then a little later the ATOS folks will pack up and go. Maybe, since organists are so "well paid" we'll all be going to the "continent" for holiday. Those who can't get out will be staying in-continent!!! Well, gotta keep throwing stuff into the washer so I won't smell next well. My new collection of goofy T-shirts is all packed and ready!!!!

(back) Subject: chat From: "LAMAR BOULET" <lmar@hotmail.com> Date: Thu, 18 Jun 1998 16:57:25 PDT   As of late, there seems to be more 'chat' on this list than usual. Most of what has come thru seems to me should be on a 'chat room' on a personal level. There has been some very good information in a few of the notes, but most have been 'chit chat' of a personal nature.   ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com  
(back) Subject: Church Web Page From: Shirley <pnst@itw.com> Date: Thu, 18 Jun 1998 20:10:20 -0400   Well, I guess it's as ready as it's going to be for a while. It's something that's always evolving, and being as a committee is in charge, it will never be finished. The music page, which was my responsibility, is almost there. We're still changing personnel around, but it's close.   So, I cautiously announce the formation of the Abington Presbyterian Church webpage at http://www.libertynet.org/~apcusa.   I know there are typos. (Our web "mistress" is a scientist, designs these things from real HTML code, and is definitely not an artistic type. She's volunteering for us, so we can't argue too much.) And it seems disjointed. You can see the influence of a lot of people's strong opinions as well.   Web page by committee? I don't suggest it....   If you have ideas or suggestions, I'd be happy to hear about them, but please be kind. :)   --Shirley

(back) Subject: Theatre Organist Jocelyn McNeil????? From: <ScottFop@aol.com> Date: Thu, 18 Jun 1998 21:14:23 EDT   In packing to move to Michigan I started looking through record albums I have not looked at in years. They have been on the shelves but I haven't really payed any attention to them.   Anyway- I found an old RCA album called "Very Hi-Fi Organ."   On the cover is a GORGEOUS color photo of the Radio City Music Hall Console (the 51st Street of Liebert Console judgind by the mirror mounted on the left side of the music rack) and sitting at the console looking rather jovial is a lady, probably Jocelyn McNeil (or supposed to be Joeclyn McNeil).   My question- was this another of the manmy "stage" names used by a famous theatre organist making a recording out-of-contract or was this a legitimate artist?   Also, what were some of the other "stage names" used by theatre organists years ago when this was the practice?   Scott Foppiano  
(back) Subject: Re: Church Web Page From: cremona84000@webtv.net (bruce cornely) Date: Thu, 18 Jun 1998 21:42:34 -0400   The Abington Presbyterian Church webpage is very nice and easy to use. Only, it does not so much as mention the organ, although it says there is an interim organist. Hopefully the organ plays a significant role and will soon receive some recognition: it provides preludes, offertories, postludes and accompaniment for hymns and anthems. Maybe some children would like to see it after church some time; this is a good time for an invitation to them. Might attract some families of children who play piano and would be intrested in organ lessons.   bruce o h s __________ a g o cornely o o __________ o o ............. cremona84000@webtv.net .............   A dog teaches a boy fidelity, perseverence, and to turn around three times before lying down. --Robert Benchley

And I'll take a couple of pix and scan them in. :) Should be easy enough to get it by the committee! Ho!   --Shirley

These little conversational "sags" are why I joined PipeOrg-L and 4 other lists, and even started one of my own. I have plenty to read now. I think everybody must be in Denver.   While we are off topic, my uncle (a computer consultant) called me today. After people got kicked from the lists over this, he says to look out for the e-mail entitled "Win a Holiday." I asked him if he was joking, since several people said it was a hoax. He was one that was victimized and said it somehow allows the "master" to read your logon password if you get further involved in the "deal" being offered. He also said to watch out for a screensaver involving the Budweiser (sp?) frogs. Microsoft announced their free internet version had a virus, and when utilized (budsaver.exe), would cause a mechanical crash in your hard drive.   Don't quote me for any of this, and I encourage everyone to get more proof before taking it seriously (I don't want to get kicked off the list either). I too thought it was a hoax until my uncle calls me about it (he's not even on the lists).   Anyway,   Kevin C. kevin1@alaweb.com
