So many came in I really can't respond to each but please know your contributions were of great help and have been turned over to the lady in charge. Thanks to all. JJ

Occasionally challenging, but well worth the work. I'm not certain if it is still available.

Is it still available?   Yes. It used to be published by Novello. I don't know if it's still in print. Some of the variations are for left hand as well as pedals. Some are relatively easy, others are horrendously difficult. It's great fun playing pedal glissandi, though.   John.  
(back) Subject: Bach Fugue in C From: "Jason McGuire" <jason@johannus-norcal.com> Date: Wed, 21 Apr 1999 21:32:13 -0700   Greetings!   I am trying to determine which C-major fugue of J. S. Bach might be called the "fanfare fugue." It begins with a repeated 5 note sequence (three 8th notes followed by two quarter notes): C-E-C-G-C. This is played twice. It then goes into the rest of the fugue immediately after repeating most of this sequence for the third time. Does this sound familiar to anyone? I will appreciate it anyone can help me identify it. Thank you.   Jason  
(back) Subject: Re: Bach Fugue in C From: Pepehomer@aol.com Date: Thu, 22 Apr 1999 00:46:55 EDT   <>   My organ professor didn't think that this one was actually written by Bach, but was written by a member of the Bach circle and just attributed to him. The piece is a E.P. Biggs organ music collection. All that it is known as in there is the Fugue in C Major, but my professor also thought it was called a Fanfare Fugue, although there is another one by Bach in C Major called the Fanfare Fugue also.   Justin Karch Organist, Holy Trinity LCMS Rome, GA  
(back) Subject: Greetings From: Rod Murrow <murrows@pldi.net> Date: Thu, 22 Apr 1999 00:02:29 -0500   Hello, everyone.   I'm a "newbie" to this list. I teach music as Northwestern Oklahoma State University in Alva, Oklahoma. I live in a very small town called Freedom, where my wife serves as the United Methodist minister. I'm organist at the First Presbyterian Church in Alva, playing a 1965 Reuter of 2 manuals and 13 ranks (designed by Marilyn Mason, who played the inaugural recital...Alva was her home and FPC was her church...and she's returning in August for another recital, this time to celebrate the church's centenary).   I have a "lead" on acquiring an 8-rank organ for our home, a Moller of mid-1950s vintage; whether that will really happen is indefinite at this point, but it's looking better and better. It's been a life-long dream and seems to be in reach.   I have developed a useful website entitled "Resources for Church Musicians: An Online Workshop" and I invite you all to give it a glance. It's being upgraded, so some pages have the "older" look and some the "newer" look...but the information is all there. Of particular interest to organist and organ enthusiasts will be the (1) Basic Organ Library and (2) Organ Stuff pages. The URL is http://www.pldi.net/~murrows/ (just click on the navigation bar "Church Music" to get to the index page).   That's all for now. I hope to "jump in" now and then to see what's happening and to add my two cents' worth.   Rodney C. Murrow (Rod) Freedom, OK

But I'd never heard of Freedom before tonight. Good luck in your organ purchase (?). --Neil Brown, AAGO, MMus Barnegat, NJ USA    
(back) Subject: Re: Bach Fugue in C From: flcg1018@mails.fju.edu.tw Date: Thu, 22 Apr 1999 16:28:01 +0800 (CST)   It is my impression the so called "Fanfare Fugue in C" by JSB begins thusly:   I don't have the music.... look at the music and see if the notes below are the theme you hear at the beginning of the piece...   C (middle C) G E C (C above middle C) C (middle C)     Best wishes to all ---     Morton Belcher fellow pipechat and organchat list member     On Wed, 21 Apr 1999, Jason McGuire wrote:   > Greetings! > > I am trying to determine which C-major fugue of J.
