(back) Subject: David German's Festive Trumpet Tune From: rmb10@mindspring.com (Monty Bennett) Date: Fri, 19 Jun 1998 06:37:09 -0500   Bob Nickel listed this as an easy postlude. I think that the piece works really well, and the congregations always seem to enjoy it. However, since David is a good friend of mine, I thought I'd add a note of corection....this wasn't written for the dedication of the Calvary organ, it was written as a wedding gift to David's wife Kathleen, and used as the processional for their wedding.   Monty Bennett

If not, I'm sure I'll be told (nicely).   In my library I have The Complete Organist (Books 1 and 2). These books are published by Kevin Mayhew and retail for $40 each. I'm interested in selling them. They are in excellent condition (barely used). Some registration notes here and there; most pages untouched. I'll take $30 for each book.

Oh yes- it can be played on a regular swell trompette or oboe with very soft accompaniment- but then this is not the way it was intended to sound as the piece (I believe) was written with the Calvary Grand Moller Organ in mind (Charlotte NC) which has no less that 10 ranks of en chamade trumpets AND a Solo, unenclosed Tuba Mirabilis.   Scott Foppiano

Not a toughie, for me: the hymnal!! I could play an entire service without resorting to any other book (if you don't consider the "Service Music" portion of the Hymnal 1982 a separate book for the purposes of this thread.   After that, I'd probably have to go with, if I could only pick one .... hmmmmm ...... there are so many .....   I'd have to go with Bach's "Orgelbuechlein."   Ken Sybesma

"Easy", however, is in the eye of the beholder. Some of the pieces mentioned earlier are a little tougher than what I personally would call easy. Good luck to you.   --George Husson   ----Original Message Follows---- Date: Fri, 19 Jun 1998 08:13:21 -0500 To: pipechat@pipechat.org From: rnickel@itol.com Subject: The Complete Organist - Books 1 and 2 Reply-To: "PipeChat" <pipechat@pipechat.org>   Hi, List:   I'm not sure if this is an appropriate post, but I'll do it anyway.

Suggestions? > I vote for "Imporvisation on Old Hundredth" by Alice Jordan (fr. Worship Service Music for the Organist, pub. by Broadman). Simple to learn and play, but sounds a little difficult (exploiting different meters, keys, etc.), flashy, campy...Fun!   ___ Tim Rand Minneapolis

These ancillary honkers are unified at 16(TC)-8-4. But yes, there is a most Mirabilis Tuba, too. And a smattering of other reeds scattered here and there amidst the 205 ranks.   Perhaps you're thinking of the Crystal Cathedral, with its 8 ranks of chamades -- well, seven now, with the south gallery former chamade having been set upright due to what I was told was sagging pipes. There's a hooded trumpet up front, as well as an unenclosed English Tuba.   I can't think of an instrument with 10 ranks of en chamade.   Ken Sybesma

While sitting here coming up with my own post for favorite postludes, and "can't do without books", I started thinking along another line. What are the pieces that you simply WILL NOT play again, under most any circumstance, and why?   J Nathan Patton St Peter's of the Lakes Episcopal Benton, Ky

From: "Kurt Kehler" <kmkehler@compuserve.com> Date: Sat, 20 Jun 1998 00:44:23 -0400   1) United We Stand (Sonny and Cher) as a wedding recessional.   2) Ave Maria, with the singer using the English words which are not a translation of the Latin chant "Ave Maria", but may be the English words Schubert had in mind when writing the song.

(back) Subject: OHS Convention on-line gathering X-POSTED From: David Scribner <david@blackiris.com> Date: Sat, 20 Jun 1998 00:03:32 -0500   I have arrived in Denver and from scoping out everything I think the best time for a gathering of the members of the lists will be on Wednesday night at the time of visiting the exhibits. Right off the Grand Ballroom there is a small lobby where it would be a good place to people to assemble.   I will post again for the AGO Convention once I can get more information about the schedule, etc at it. i will also find the message boards at each convention and put an announcement there.   For those travelling out here, if you wish to reach me I am in Room 619 at the Doubletree. Hope you all have a safe trip.   David   ********************* David Scribner Co-Owner, PipeChat

Oh well- they have more than most of us. Pity that none of that organ is being used to any noteworthy degree anymore. (I shant say anymore right now. Monty???)   Scott Foppiano

Unless you're doing your math according to Ken List's method of dividing "1" in half and getting zero, in which case your mileage may indeed vary.

(back) Subject: Must-Have Book From: rnickel@itol.com Date: Sat, 20 Jun 1998 02:01:04 -0500   Hi, List:   I can't remember what the original subject line was, but someone asked about what books we can't get along without? I'd have to say that "L'Organiste" is one of those. I've recently acquired it, and I've been enjoying exploring Cesar and his writing. And, for the manuals-only organist, it fits the bill.   Hope this helps.   Bob Nickel   P. S. Someone else responded with the series The Liturgical Organist. My very first organ teacher gave me a copy when I was but a lad. (Well, I'm not that old.) I have enjoyed using this book and think of her always while playing from it. At this stage in my life, the pieces are now sight-readable. In those days, whew!
