(back) Subject: Easter at St. Matthew's From: Bud/burgie <budchris@earthlink.net> Date: Sun, 04 Apr 1999 17:24:57 -0700   I wish I could say that I celebrated the Resurrection with joy, but I didn't.   We were warming up for the Easter Vigil ... the basses were falling all over the chant of the Benedictus at Lauds (which we'd practiced for months, and it's not that hard ... it's just Solemn Tone 8). I said,   "that's OK, guys, the cantor and I will sing the chant verses, and you sing on the harmonized fauxbourdon verses."   One of my basses (a 63-year-old man who has not heretofore exhibited any OTHER signs of mental instability) threw a temper tantrum and threatened to walk out ... this about five minutes before the service was to start.   I was speechless ... I couldn't run; I couldn't fight; the choir got hysterical; he's the only bass who reads music. I finally just got up and walked into the church and sat down in my chair and waited for the service to start, not knowing whether I'd have a choir or not.   They came in to sing, but they were all over the lot. Things they know by HEART they couldn't get right. Not surprising ... I was shaking so badly I could barely play.   I got through the service ... somehow. I didn't play a postlude. I just walked out and came home and had a glass of wine and went to bed.   I had no IDEA what would happen this morning. They showed up and sang tolerably well, but nobody was talking to anybody. I played the Masses, rather mechanically, I'm afraid.   This has only happened to me one other time in forty years, at a crazy Episcopal church in Cincinnati that the bishop later closed because they were SO crazy.   My choir is normally very friendly and supportive ... including the bass. I can't IMAGINE what was going on. I've given things to myself and the chanter before; I've even pulled anthems at the Sunday warmup if I didn't feel they were coming together.   Whatever was going on, it certainly robbed me of any joy or satisfaction I might have taken from all the months of hard work.   Bud

We are certainly all in church to give glory to God and should expect His support of our efforts. I have found that spending some quiet time in prayer, usually at home before even going to the church, recognizing that God gives us our talents and including everyone in my prayers goes a long way towards setting the tone of unity and calm that blesses everyone and allows our work to flow smoothly and harmoniously. I expect that God is more than pleased with right intentions and everyone's hard work to "sing praises to Him" and I believe you can have joy and satisfaction in knowing that ... not wishing to preach, only feeling your pain and wanting to support you.   Jason McGuire

Doney" <jdoney@email.msn.com> Date: Sun, 4 Apr 1999 21:47:51 -0000   This was the first time in 40 years I have not played the Widor Toccata. I always used it as the prelude and did the Vierne Carillon (24 pieces in free style) as a Postlude. This year, 3 weeks ago, I came down with a case of shingles (ouch) and I have not really regained strength. Sleep feels better than anything, and each year I found I needed to spend more time getting the Toccata back. No way did I have the energy for it, and since we paid big bucks for a good trumpet player, we did the Rondeau (Masterpiece theater theme) for the prelude, Healy Willans Prelude on a tune by Vulpius for the Offertory (I had him play the theme up an octave when it comes in the left hand) and did the Vierne for the Postlude. Choir did "Worthy is the Lamb" and Hallelujah chorus by Handel. All went quite well. Hope you all had a good festive day.   Being my second Easter with the Presbyterians, I missed doing a fancy processional on "Hail Thee Festival Day" when I was in the Episcopalian church.   JOHN

They belong to the whole Church. They're yours as much as anybody else's. To use or not use, as you wish. If you use them (or any of them), you're not "borrowing" them from the Lutherans, but from your own whole Christian tradition.   Alan Freed

(back) Subject: Re: Vierne, Widor, DuBois... From: Pepehomer@aol.com Date: Sun, 4 Apr 1999 22:34:25 EDT   I went traditional for this Easter, sort of. I began with the DuBois Toccata (even though I have seen it as the Sortie Toccata, no one left during the prelude!) offeratory with "Thine is the Glory" (Handel) and <ta-da> the Widor Toccata at the end. I polished it up yesterday (Saturday) but my stand-by, just in case my fingers decided that the DuBois Toccata was enough, was the Vierne Carillon from the 24 pieces. Even though I think it's as challenging musically to the Widor, but chords to me are less demanding on the fingers. (large hands!) As a "joke" I placed the Bach chorale on "Here comes Peter Cottontail" as the second postlude, since I knew I wouldn't need it. So far I don't think many caught the "Heir Kommen Der Hare" music...   Justin Karch Organist, Holy Trinity LCMS Rome, GA
