It no longer exists, but I suppose you could call the church and ask the present organist (whose name I can't remember ... Christopher something-or-other ... he was just appointed recently) and ask them if there are any copies lying about. Wes Day was (is?) organist at Christ Episcopal Church (?) in Philadelphia. Sorry to be so vague, but my Episcopal directory is down at the church. I'll look when I go down there today.   Cheers,   Bud   B.

(back) Subject: Why Easter Didn't Go The Way You Expected From: Bud/burgie <budchris@earthlink.net> Date: Tue, 06 Apr 1999 09:26:00 -0700   Here's a thought that occurred to me last night:   When I was at Old St. Mary's, the normal acoustic was about 3 1/2 seconds reverb ... not as much as it should have been, because the ceiling was frescos on canvas ... but it was pretty stable at 3 1/2 seconds, up to about 1,000 in the congregation (it was a huge church ... seated about 1500 altogether) ... that left the hardwood floors of the aisles bare, and some of the pews in the side aisles, and most of the seating in the side balconies.   But one Easter we combined the German and Latin Masses because a visiting choir from Germany was singing the Mozart Sparrow Mass ... my choir was to sing the Propers and the motets.   We had over 2,000 people jammed into the place, and the acoustics dried up to NOTHING. Everything sounded AWFUL ... no legato, no line, no NUTHIN'. My choir of 16 couldn't be heard at ALL downstairs, and the German choir of about 25-30 didn't fare much better.   If your churches aren't normally full or over-full, perhaps that accounts for some of the craziness on Easter ... having people and chairs in the aisles RADICALLY alters the acoustics in most places. And there's no way to prepare for it ...   Even at little St. Matthew's, which has no acoustic to begin with, the organ sounded screechier than usual, and I could tell by the lag between the choir and the congregation that it wasn't carrying more than halfway up the aisle.   Just a thought ...   Cheers,   Bud (who's off to lay out and print the booklets for Eastertide Evensong .... sigh)

John Henderson ("A Directory of Composers for Organ") has this: "Ralph Kinder, said to have been a pupil of E.H. Lemare, moved to the USA [from England] at the age of five and later was organist of Holy Trinity in Philadelphia. His organ works include:   3 Compositions (Berceuse, Fantasia on 'Duke Street', Festival March), 1904 (G.Schirmer) 3 Pieces (Idyll, Intermezzo, Serenade), 1907 (G Schirmer) Grand Choeur in A, 1909 (G Schirmer) 2 Compositions (Caprice, Meditation), 1910 (G Schirmer) 2 Compositions (Processional MArch, Berceuse), 1911 (G Schirmer) Cantile`ne du soir, 1912 (Belwin) Evensong in Eb, 1912 (Belwin) Prelude & Fugue in e minor, 1912 (Belwin) Toccata in D, 1912 (Belwin) In Springtime, 1913 (Belwin) Jubilate Amen, 1914 (Belwin) In Moonlight, 1915 (Belwin) A Spring Day, 1915 (Belwin) Aphrodite, 1916 (Belwin) Exultemus, 1916 (Belwin) At Evening, 1917 (T Presser) Fantasia on the Battle Hymn of the Republic, 1917 (Belwin) Souvenir, 1922 (Belwin) Summer Morning, 1922 (Belwin) Concert Overture in G, 1922 (Belwin) Arietta, 1923 (Belwin) Easter Hymn (T Presser) Twilight Musings (on 'Eventide') (T Presser) "   I purchased a copy of "In springtime" in 1971 when I, too, heard Asper play it on Columbia mono recording, ML-5615. The fairly easy piece was originally published by J. Fischer & Bro. in 1913. It was dedicated to Melvin Biggs Goodwin, also of Philadelphia.   Terry Mueller Las Vegas

Everything sounded AWFUL ... >   You are right, acoustics can make or break it. The most important "stop" on the organ is the room and much the same is true for vocal and orchestral music as well. One time when I played a special service at Trinity in SF (EM Skinner 4/52, about 3-1/2 seconds) we crammed over 1,000 in (normally seats about 900 max). While we did not loose all the reverb we did loose about 1/2 of it ... fortunately, high hard plaster ceilings, heavy stone walls, etc., kept us "alive" but there it does not carry all the way to the back without significant drop off in amplitude. ....oh for a room that can accommodate an extra 20% above capacity and still be vibrant acoustically!   Jason

A few extra preludes never hurts, but I always have a challenge finding enough postludes that are around 3 to 3-1/2 minutes long. Most of the congregation is half way down the block before I finish the postlude anyway, so the bigger works (Bach preludes and fugues, French symphonies, etc.) wind up being played to 2 or 3 people by about 1/2 way through, so I usually save them for "special" occasions. Easter was an exception as about 8-10 people congregated around the console to see the "fingers and feet" show on Vierne's Final to #1.   The titles in Kinder's opus list reminded me of one I had buried away ... "In Summer" by Charles Albert Stebbins (Schirmer 1936) ... starts out "pp, " builds to "fff" in the middle, ends up back at "ppp" at the end, soft celestes, oboe solo ... not bad, I'll have to resurrect it.

When I played the first cut my husband dashed into the room to see if a B-32 landed. (I'm not kidding!) Then, on comes the music - from Bach, through the `Miss America' Theme, and selections of Joplin, Gershwin, Gounod, Speaks, Vierne, Monk, Bourgeois, and Liszt (a `Plaster Blaster'). To wrap up this neat little present: two demonstrations -- the 100-inch `Tuba Imperial' (which will blow the crown off anyone's head from eating `Imperial' margarine); and, the 64-foot `Diaphone - Dulzian' (a demonstration that rattled three pictures off the wall!   This is a definite MUST for all to have in your organ recording collections. David - many thanks for this and you will see a new name ``joining the ranks'' of ACCHOS.   A tip of the `Derby' hat to all performing and all taking part in the recording process.

Glad I have a sequencer for my 90 Rodgers. In one of the side balconies they really get the Great straight in their faces. Guess where all the comment cards come from saying I am too loud! So we need to move the speakers up in the ceiling. Anyone know of a cherrypicker that will get through our front door and is cheap?

(back) Subject: LeMare's Andantino From: MickBerg@aol.com Date: Wed, 7 Apr 1999 01:44:28 EDT   Two questions; 1 Can anyone tell me where to get the sheet music and a good recording of E.H. LeMare's "Andantino in D-flat" (later to become "Moonlight and Roses"?)   2 How does Albert Schweitzer bring out the chorale melody so well in his wonderful old (1936) recording of Orgelbuchlein #13 "Christum wir sollen loben schon"? It seems that he must be playing it on a separate manual (presumably "thumbing down", which I thought was not acceptable Bach technique). Other recordings of the same piece that I have (Bernard Foccroulle; very nice, but the melody is not clear, and Marie Claire Alain's screeching version for Musical Heritage Society, no comment) fall far short of Dr. Schweitzer's interpretation, in my opinion.   Thanks in advance, Mick Berg.
