Austin consoles are also very comfortable to = use, though I think they differ in some ways from AGO standard. Why not = find a church which has a console you like, and then go and measure it?   Hi John,   Thanks for the information. I will check out the April 1962 Diapason = for the standards and will take your sugguestion concerning the Skinner and Moller consoles.   Regards, Larry Grandstaff

It is also available from: Paxton Music 8/9 Frith St., London W1V 5TZ, Order No.# NOV357436.   Thanks to everyone who helped me locate this music!   Bob Cowley Music Director/Organist St. John's Lutheran Church Springfield, OH. 45506

(back) Subject: out-of-print music (sorta off-topic) From: Bud <budchris@earthlink.net> Date: Fri, 16 Oct 1998 09:21:46 -0700   Dear Friends,   I'm choirmaster and organist in an Anglican church that uses the old liturgy and the old Prayer Book.   If anyone can spare single copies of Communion Services (Masses) and/or Canticles (Venite, Benedictus es, Benedicite, Benedictus, Jubilate, Magnificat, Nunc dimittis) using the 1928 Book of Common Prayer text, I'd be most appreciative. I'll be happy to copy them and return them to you, or if you could send reproduceable Xerox copies ... the vast majority of this music is out of print.   I'm also looking for copies of the warhorses from the Victorian "cathedral" anthem repertoire ... Stainer's "Grieve Not The Holy Spirit of God", MacFarren's (?) "Open Our Eyes", etc.   We're a new church, and I have NO music budget and NO library, just an enthusiastic choir. Any help would be greatly appreciated!   THANKS!   Bud Clark Choirmaster and Organist St. Matthew's Church 1723 Westcliff Drive Newport Beach CA 92660-5529   P.S. - We have copies of the Chant and Service Book of 1898, Dr. Palmer's Plainchant Gradual, Parts I, II, III, IV, and the English Gradual, Parts I, II, and Supplement, if anybody needs THOSE. We're still looking for The Oxford-American Psalter and the Plainsong Psalter.

Stainer's "Grieve Not The Holy >Spirit of God", MacFarren's (?) "Open Our Eyes", etc.   I'll check the library - my church has gone the way of the Praise Band, and has no choir at present. Most of the music is quite old, as the church has been around awhile.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!   Well now. I've always wanted to write music for the Anglican service.... any texts handy for me to use? What sort of length/difficulty/etc ? I have several clips of my music on the publishing website (see below) BTW, I'm in SoCal also - I live in Redlands and have been doing music on an interim basis in San Gabriel (2 hr round-trip!) *********************** Jonathan Orwig http://members.aol.com/giwro/index.html (personal) http://members.aol.com/evnsong/pgone.html (Music Publishing)   ___________________________________________________________________ You don't need to buy Internet access to use free Internet e-mail.

(back) Subject: Re: About that place called OrganChat, the Friendly List From: Afreed0904@aol.com Date: Fri, 16 Oct 1998 15:51:35 EDT   In reply to Mac Hayes post a few minutes or so ago:   Mac:   OrganChat is a quiet, civilized little group of fewer than 50, mostly church organists. Been around for a couple of months. High per-capita post- generation, I'd say. Often almost like live chat, as several people will post six or eight times in a row, in conversation with several others. Mostly rather church-oriented, but by no means entirely. Not a lot of technical talk, but there's some talk of analog vs. digital, pipe vs. electronic--the usual things. Quite a bit of theology (largely Lutheran/Episcopal; we really would be enriched by an infusion of Roman Catholics, mainline protestants, and others; I'm a retired Lutheran pastor, and function as resident know-it-all and chaplain), but really no rules to limit that, other than our own courtesy--of which we have a good supply. It's really disgustingly civil. Discussions of internal parish politics and procedures occur, as well as ordinary organist problems like transposition, accompaniment, solists' problems, etc. A good bit of humor, both sophisticated and broad. Flamingjust does not occur; it's really a rather polite group of very nice people. Florida, St. Louis, San Antonio, Phoenix, Virginia, Detroit, Illinois, New York, Philadelphia, etc., are represented among frequent posters; we also have several very nice people in Europe and the Pacific Rim. If that fits you, you might want to take a look. If it doesn't, it would be a waste of your time. Some people you already know from pipechat and another organ list are there as well. I'd be glad to see you there!   The following web info will lead you there:   OrganChat, the Friendly List --- Live Chat, Tuesdays at 9:00 PM Eastern Time --- http://www.desertsoft.net/organchat   Alan Freed

I have a feeling the PrAzE Craze is just about over. Don't ask me how I know this, but I feel it. hehehe!   DeserTBoB
