I have a 1959 example in the organ I play regularly.

(back) Subject: Re: Father Willis..was Georgi Mushel From: Satbcantor <Satbcantor@aol.com> Date: Wed, 13 May 1998 12:24:36 EDT   John, Hi, You uttered.... < Looking up All Saints,Kingston, I found that indeed there was a rather fine Henry Willis Iinstrument built in this church in the nineteenth century. Extensive changes were, however, carried out by Norman & Beard, Rushworth & Dreaper and John Compton at various times during the present century. So I don't imagine there was much of the Willis left by the time Frobenius got there and it probably wasn't a great loss.>   I think my eyes must be playing me tricks, cos I thought there for a moment, that you mentioned HNB, Rushworth & Dreaper and Compton, all in the same sentence as HENRY WILLIS. Lesser builders can fart about with the bones of a Willis organ, but they cannot touch its soul. In the quiet moments, in the dead of night, that peerless 'full swell to reeds' still tries to saw its way out from behind the shutters.   Like I said, someone has to die................you'll do ! :-))))))   Regards to you and yours, Chris Baker-Willis

I wonder if he he had another version of the that song called "Come To Jesus" in whole notes.

(back) Subject: Re: organist's tricks From: ComposerTX <ComposerTX@aol.com> Date: Wed, 13 May 1998 16:10:17 EDT   Beau, Like most great stories, I believe this one to be based in fact. "Come to Jesus" was apparently a very easy Sunday School song that just about anyone could sing, ergo, "She couldn't even sing 'Come to Jesus' in whole notes." Danny Ray

He said that sinners would invariably hit the altar, the low notes not really sounding pitches, but causing some kind of havoc in their subconcious minds, and convincing them of their need to "pray through."

I accompanied an arrangement of this many years ago - I thought it was a good song.   One problem with the song that might make it a gray area for weddings is that, in the Bible that is, this text is not between a bride and groom. It is between the widow Ruth and her widowed mother in law, Naomi.   O well, time to go to bed. Keith

That its text comes from the bible makes no difference when people hear it; thus, in function, it's hardly "sacred."   And, of course, it's a love song of one woman for another.

Occasionally I'd pull that trick out when the church was full. You could see the people trying to figure out what child brought her loud baby doll with her!   steve       On Wed, 13 May 1998 00:03:44 -0400 mewzishn@spec.net writes: >KZimme7737 wrote: > >> I noticed that if I tapped the lowest >> C quickly, it made a disgusting sound - like wind being broken. > >Makes a wonderful tension-buster in the middle of a choir rehearsal >right before >high holy days.
