For the early service at the Baptists, I had a trumpeter, and we did the "Masterpiece Theatre Music" (Rondo, by Mouret). We did the other three movements for prelude- (betcha didn't know it *had* three more movements)- I wanted to save the familiar for the last. At the Congregational church, we've been meeting in the church annex since New Years, due to renovation in the sanctuary, so I've been playing on my Estey reed organ. No Toccata V on that, obviously, and the room is far too small for brass, so we had two violins and cello, and did three of the Dvorak op 47 Bagatelles for prelude and postlude. Got a ringing ovation at the end, thanks!   Paul Opel Bennington, VT   http://www.sover.net/~popel

They take a promise of celibacy to their Bishop on the day of ordination.   Sincerely,   Brother Mark

I usually use it on the 2nd Sunday but won't be playing next week. I played it extremely well and very fast but only a handful were still in the church for the end as short as it is. The organ is up front so I can be seen with the flying crossovers but no one cares. I kept the volume up for that yesterday but usually I keep it down on postludes because the church is small and I'm just competing with the greetings at the door and in the aisles. But alas that is another thread already beat to death before. I wanted to jump in on the whole Holyweek discussion but didn't have time to even read them all. After a short vacation this week it will be too late.

(back) Subject: Re: Widor on Easter From: Randolph Runyon <runyonr@muohio.edu> Date: Mon, 5 Apr 1999 12:58:57 -0400   We have a really tiny sanctuary. The 110 people there yesterday, twice the average attendance pretty much filled it. It's built more in a square than a rectangle. I thought trumpets would be a little much for the acoustic (besides being expensive), so I had a flute quartet come down from Miami University, and they played all the incidental music except the postlude, for which I played the Widor toccata. The minister, thinking the flutes were going to play the postlude too (a fluty arrangement of the Widor, I guess, since the latter was announced in the program), asked the congregation to remain in their seats for the flute quartet to play their last number. No doubt he was a little surprised when I played the toccata instead. But it was good, because for the first time ever, everyone stayed in their seats to hear the postlude. I got a good round of applause when it was over. Good thing I had done some slow practice. It's one thing to play it when people are talking and milling about and quite another when they're quitely listening.   The flutes played what really wasn't Easter music, but good stuff nevertheless: arrangements of Amazing Grace, Simple Gifts, and Brahms' "How Lovely Are Thy Dwellings" from the German Requiem, with me on piano (prelude) Alleluia from Mozart's Exultate Jubilitate, with a bass flute added (offertory), and Pachel's Canon (during communion).   Professor Randolph Paul Runyon Dept. of French, Miami University Oxford, OH 45056 runyonr@muohio.edu

In the Roman Church the general rule is that priests must be single males, and quite celibate. But there are MANY exceptions. Thousands of Roman priests ARE married, and quite openly and with all due permissions. Possibly the two largest groups are Eastern Rite Roman Catholics, for whom marriage is permitted if entered into before their ordination (I think) to the diaconate; and men who were married (and had kids, etc., in many cases) BEFORE they became Roman Catholics, and were ordained in that church (largely Anglican and Lutheran clergy who "swam the Tiber" and converted to Rome).   Perhaps the basic point illustrated here is that the Roman practice of clerical celibacy is a policy matter, and not a theological/doctrinal/dogmatic matter.   Alan Freed

(back) Subject: Re: Widor on Easter From: John Vanderlee <jovanderlee@vassar.edu> Date: Mon, 05 Apr 1999 14:01:21 -0500 (EST)   As a non organist but organ lover, I have to report on our Easter Service in our little country Episcopal Church (All names ommitted to protect the innocent).   We have a nice Allen that is capable of being very pleasing. My spouse is a past organist and in our opinion the (new)current organist's use of stops does not always seem to coincide with what we would expect.   The Prelude was Dubois Toccata with a SCREAMING reed that was used throughout, much paining our ears.   The rest of the service was lovely and inspiring, complete with trumpetist' accompaniment.   Then the Postlude:   The Widor #5 Toccata screeched in with that same reed assaulting our ears for 7 some minutes, along with many wrong notes, and volume at the threshold of pain.   When it was over, some people blinked , there were sighs of relief, the inspirational mood was destroyed, and one of our very musical congregation members said with the brightest smile on her face: "That is positively the worst thing I ever heard!" I saw tears in people's eyes which were, after further inquiry NOT tears of joy, but of the destruction of a carefully nurtured music program.   Just to be sure, we went home and listened to two recordings of the Widor (Michael Murray and Virgil Fox) just to re-establish some point of reference.   Any politically correct (and diplomatic) suggestions to remedy the situation?   John V

Toaster mfrs. have only recently figured out how to make realistic expression pedals. With the exception of very new installations, most toasters are equipped with a "master volume" pedal. This pedal takes you from the barely audible all the way up to an ear-splitting noise rivalling a V/STOL jet taking off. (...this is what scares me the most about playing on a digital organ, you never know what dynamic you'll get until it's too late) Find out if the local toaster dealer can do any revoicing/reprogramming/repossessing to mitigate that reed or the dynamic level. Otherwise, you need to talk to the organist about using that reed sparingly. Having been the victim of "registration advice" from non-musicians...I'm the last person to suggest that you tell the organist not to use it. But make sure they're not using it every week. What is this person's training and background? Regarding wrong notes, were the klunkers limited to the Toccata or had they spilled over into the hymns as well? Did they distract from the total effect of the piece? halt the rhythm? etc...Are we talking about all-out-no-holds-barred crashes or just an occasional flub or two?   Rob

With all of the build up to the new organist's arrival after I played there for the Christmas services, and knowing of what Nancy did for both Lithgow and South Amenia, it is a sorry commentary that things are not well there. I hope for everyone's happiness that there is an improvement. By the way what was the horrible reed that was used? All I remember was that nice Trumpette on the Swell of that Allen.

One thought occurs to me, and that is that someone could provide the organist with good recordings of one or both of these two pieces for him/her to listen to with the comment "we really enjoyed (artist's name)'s registrations in the Widor in this recording, so rich and smooth ... we would be interested in your opinions of the recording." You might also raise the issue of the use of that particular reed stop and just let the organist know that, out in the room at least, it produces an unpleasant sound that takes away from all his/her hard work. How to address the issue of many wrong notes is another problem. Honesty is the best policy and if presented in an honest, compassionate and supportive way might be easier to hear. All of this, of course, needs to consider the person you are addressing and his/her sensitivities ... not an easy one ... maybe kindly suggesting that the congregation would be happier with simpler music played well ... good luck with it.   Jason

I moved Miss Wibble Wabble soprano from the front row to the back about 3 years ago, because her voice dominated the sound. She was most offended. But, I smoothed it over with her privately and told her that I thought her voice would work better back there filtering through the others. She actually bought it. Different reason, but same junk. I would offer your bass a solo during Eastertide and talk with him privately before your discourse to the choir. I speaketh from experience. It takes all kinds to make a choir and they all have to be ministered to, much to my chagrin. Additionally, I've prayed more people out of this choir than ever before. You know what, except for Miss Wibble Wabble, it has worked. Just a word of caution from one church musician to another. Peace. --Neil Brown
