I should watch my mouth, but I have just finished a "contemporary" choir service.

It's got a whole bunch of markings and other things written in it. It was still in GREAT shape and It wasn't being used. So, I'm the possesor of it now.   Anyways,   I use it to find altarnate Harmonizations of Hymns that are lenghty and boring, or to find different keys of that hymn. I have also found a TON of Amens to use with the choirs after prayer times. I have also found Gospel Acclamations to use after the reading of the Gospel. I first tried this at Easter Sunday this year and the Congregation REALLY likes/liked it. Keep in mind that this is a CATHOLIC hymnal in a METHODIST church.   Well, I've also done an entire substitue service on Epiphany Sunday this past year. They loved it. So, it goes to show you that different hymnals CAN be used successfully in different churches or an entire service can be performed out of the Hymnal.   Regards....

(back) Subject: Koopman/Mathot-Concert at Kiedrich [long] From: "Thomas Haubrich" <haubt000@goofy.zdv.Uni-Mainz.de> Date: Fri, 26 Jun 1998 02:01:33 +0200   Hello folks and pipers!   I attended an unbelievable and fantastic concert for two organs today, which I want to report to those of you, who might be interested. Those who are not, might now push your DELETE button.   That concert took place at the St. Valentinus church at Kiedrich, in the so called Rheingau, Germany, placed wonderful inmidst the finest winegardens.   This church possesses one of the oldest organs in Germany, built round 1500-1520, and it still has one of the most beautiful gothic organ cases in the world, including the painted case doors on both sides. About 80 percent of the pipework are original, the former one manual Principal 8'-work was enlarged in the 17th century with a Ruckpositiv, which was removed later on. A first restoration took place in the 19th century, sponsored by the English Baronet Sutton; the last restoration took place in the 1980ies, by the excellent Swiss firm KUHN. The organ has (I think) 21 stops, 2 Manuals, short octave and meantone temperament, and it sounds absolute fascinating. For those of you who are interested in the specification, mail me privately, I'll look then next week, when I'm back home for the organ monography to give further details.   The second organ is the small Flemish positive organ from the 17th century (5 stops), which was also a donation by Baronet Sutton to the church, in the 19th century. It's also in meantone temperament with short octave.   The genuine Dutch virtuoso Ton KOOPMAN, and his wife Tini MATHOT played the following program:   Giovanni Gabrieli: Two Canzonas (The two organs)   Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck: Ballo del Granduca (Koopman, Main organ) Puer nobis nascitur (Koopman, Main organ)   (The second piece is also vivid music, played by Koopman trough all variations only with Principal 8' and Flute 4', GREAT!!!)   Samuel Scheidt: Oh Neighbour Roland (The two organs)   Anonymous (17th century): Doen Daphne (Koopman, Main organ) from the Leningrad Manuscripts A fascinating piece from the Sweelinck school, worth to be studied and played...   Giovanni Gabrieli: Two Canzonas (The two organs)   Domenico Scarlatti: 3 Sonatas (in D, D and G) (Koopman, Main Organ) A virtuoso and humorist, that Dutch interpret......... :-)   Padre Antonio Soler: Concerto f. two keyboard instruments No.4 in F-Maj= ...

They're musicians who're able to blow out the dust from that sort of musi= c, which sounds absolute boring, when played straight and academically.   The above mentioned repertoire is absolutely worth to be put on one or the other of your next programs, be it in concert or in service.   A CD by Koopman (Edition Capriccio) with works from 1500-1750 played at Kiedrich organ is aviable.     So, folks, after this musical adventure, I'll take now a fine glass of ol= d whiskey, to the health of good Ton and Tini, and to all of yours!     TombytheRhine,   alias   Thomas Haubrich Organist Hermeskeil Protestant Church Mainz, Germany

(back) Subject: Re: Koopman/Mathot-Concert at Kiedrich [long] From: <CHERCAPA@aol.com> Date: Thu, 25 Jun 1998 21:36:01 EDT   Dear Thomas, I remember hearing that organ in Kiedrich in the late 60's. I was a USAF captain stationed at Wiesbaden AB. My wife and I and some friends used to go to Mass at St. Valentines's on Sunday and we were there when the organ was rebuilt in 1969 or 1970. Mass was outside and I remember the organist testing it out after Mass. My mother and aunt were there and this was the first time they heard a German organ and were impressed. The acoustics in that church, with the stone walls and floor were fantastic. There was a restaurant above the church where we would order befstek und Pomme Frites und salat. Gut essen. Kiedrich was ein shonen platz mit gut memorien. (I know that isn't the word for memories, ich vorgessen) We would like to visit it once more before we cross the divide. Sincerely, Paul P. Valtos

I went to the funeral of a neighbour, he was only 23, and they had a Young People Group of about 6 sing and play "Here I am Lord."

Anyway, I find some versions of the Bible state "organ" in that verse, and others don't. The more contemporary versions (we used to own a Christian bookstore) have more modern items listed in a strange font as if they were added, like the word "organ." But, if I pull out my Old King James version, there is no mention of the organ.   Keep talking about "anything else," and you might get into trouble. It doesn't say specifically "modern piano" either. And, if all a church can afford is a Hammond B-3, let them go for it...   Anyway,   Kevin C. kevin1@alaweb.com

What did you think they were?   The "organ" mentioned in 150:4 was probably something like a set of panpipes. No keyboards, no stops, no windway or reservoir (except that within the body of the player).   Ken Sybesma     P.S. Scripture does mention the very first baseball game, though. Genesis 1.1, "In the big inning...."   P.P.S. Also found there is the first automobile, I believe it's Paul who writes in one of his letters, "And they were all in one Accord."        
(back) Subject: Our organist search From: giwro@juno.com (Jonathan M Orwig) Date: Thu, 25 Jun 1998 21:33:36 -0700   Hi Chatters,   We have been searching for an organist at my church, as ours has retired. There has not been much interest (and I admit I'm not surprised - PT salary and a 3M Rodgers don't attract much attention). It looks as if the process is coming to a close, with the choice being somewhat a surprise to me. (but a pleasant surprise, nonetheless!) When this process is done, I will share some of the experiences it has brought...   Jonathan Orwig (who wishes he was headed for Denver AGO... ) ***************** for new Organ, Keyboard & Choral Music visit Evensong Music at: http://members.aol.com/Evnsong/pgone.html Personal Page: http://members.aol.com/Giwro/index.html (lots of organ pictures...)   _____________________________________________________________________ You don't need to buy Internet access to use free Internet e-mail.
