You should really come down and hear the auditorium organ this year, they have just aquired 3 16' Strings!! It should be even more impressive with a new solo reed this year, the new Tuba Major is on a huge scale, with about 35 in of wind. I am also curious as to the situation at Sacred HeArt. I didn't know that David left! What happened, and what is happening as to finding new people for the position?   -Pete Isherwood

(back) Subject: First Recital From: Stephen F P Karr <karrlist@scescape.net> Date: Mon, 4 May 1998 23:18:04 -0300 (EST)   Hi, listers-   I've not said much on here lately, but I'll tell of my first recital (which was not too terribly long ago).   21 November, 1997; 3:00 PM (Christ the King Sunday)   St. Mary, Help of Christians Roman Catholic Church   Buxtehude: Prelude, Fugue and Chaconne in C BuxWV 137 Two Trios: Trio in g-minor (from Ten Trios) -Josef Rheinberger Trio in D-Major -Johann Ludwig Krebs Mendelssohn: Sonata II in c-minor (this seems to be a popular one) Grave Adagio Allegro Maestoso e Vivace (no fugue, hadn't learned it yet) Three Pieces for Advent: Vom Himmel Hoch -Johann Pachelbel Vom Himmel Hoch -Friederich Wilhelm Zachau Wachet Auf, Ruft Uns Die Stimme -Johann Sebastian Bach J. S. Bach: Toccata and Fugue in d-minor BWV 565 J. N. Lemmens: Fanfare in D-Majorj   *Encore*   J. S. Bach: "Little" fugue in g-minor   It was well received, by those few who attended. I didn't count, but I guess there were maybe 30 to 50 there. I don't notice who and how many are in front of me when I talk to an audience (in this case, before I went back to the choir loft to begin). The organ is a II/21 Hinners (spec available on request), built in 1904, rebuilt by Bozeman in 1985. It is purely mechanical, stop, coupler, and key action all. That makes for interesting playing on the end of French toccatas and such when you want a little more for the last reiteration of the theme, and you have to go for the Sw-Gt 4', which makes the Great manual doubly heavy. It's a good little organ, though.   More?   -Stephen

From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@access.aic-fl.com> Date: Mon, 4 May 1998 21:44:07 -0500   Bruce and others,   I have been tempted to write several times during some of the more interesting strains, but the last few times I have written anything I have received extremely offensive private responses. There's just too much to life to subject myself to that. However, I'm still lurking and listening, gleaning the remnants of the good postings re organs, recitals, and re-leathering, stoplists, etc. Keep those organ-related postings coming!   By the way, where can I get some of those pickle-things they played at the AGO Centennial closing ceremonies? I need 3 or 4 for July 4 - I want to teach some people to do the piccolo part to accompany me for "The Stars and Stripes Forever!" [Just a thought.]   Glenda Sutton    
(back) Subject: Traditional Catholic music From: "Kevin M. Simons" <Kevin.M.Simons-1@ou.edu> Date: Mon, 04 May 1998 22:09:47 -0500   Howdy list,   I have a favor to ask all of you listers out there...I'm looking for traditional choral music (sorry its not more organic) to use in the catholic mass at St. Thomas. Is there a specific Catholic Press that produces these kind of things suited to the church, or would it be best for me to stick with general church anthem repetoire? It looks like I may be taking the Director of Music position at St. Thomas so I'm just kind of investigating what I have to deal with. The choir currently mostly does contemporary things, but I'd like to SLOWLY move them towards more traditional things.   Thanks for your help.   Kevin M.

If people are sending you flaming, unkind posts, just shoot 'em a hot, litigious threat on some of your most hateful looking stationery. Yousalawya!
