The first line goes something like this: "Oh I = woke >up this morning.......". If anyone out there has the words, please send = them >to me. Private responses are prefered, that way the entire list doesn't = have >to read them. Thanks in advance. > >Carlo   Maybe somebody else on the list will be curious to know the answer, so = I'll post this publicly. The gospel song in question is number 623 in the _The Chalice Hymnal_, the new (1995) hymnal of the Disciples of Christ. The first verse is: "Oh, I woke up this morning with mind stayed on Jesus" x 3; Hallelu, Hallelu, Hallelujah. No credit is given for the source other than "African-American spiritual." I recall that in the 1960s civil = rights movment the words were changed to: "... stayed on freedom."   Randy Runyon interim organist, Monfort Heights United Methodist, Cinti. beginning 8/29/99: organist, Immanuel Presbyterian, Cinti.      
(back) Subject: Re: Looking for a Gospel Song............ From: runyonr@muohio.edu (Randolph Runyon) Date: Fri, 20 Aug 1999 11:35:05 -0700   Sorry, I didn't pay enough attention to your actual request, which was for the words. So here are all of them:   1. Oh, I woke up this morning with my mind, (and it was) stayed on Jesus. (three times) Hallelu, (Hallelu,) Hallelu, Hallelu, Hallelujah.   2. Can't hate your neighbor in your mind, (if you keep it) stayed on = Jesus. (three times) (same refrain) [first two notes (beats 3 & 4) not sung before "Can't hate..."] (sung on beats 1 & 2)   3. Makes you love ev'ry body with your, (when you keep it) stayed on = Jesus. (three times)\ (same refrain)   Words in parentheses are sung by bass, alto, tenor (kind of a back-up chorus). I've heard the "(and it was)" also rendered as "(my mind it was)".   Randy Runyon interim organist, Monfort Heights United Methodist, Cinti. beginning 8/29/99: organist, Immanuel Presbyterian, Cinti.      
(back) Subject: Re: Looking for a Gospel Song............ From: Posthorn8@aol.com Date: Fri, 20 Aug 1999 15:48:39 EDT   I think the song you're looking for is...I'm Feeling Fine. I have it somewhere...I just have to dig it out. (I was the Accompanist for a gospel =   quartet for 20 years.) It may take a day or two.   Tim  
(back) Subject: ...words of thanks..... From: "Carlo Pietroniro" <concert_organist@hotmail.com> Date: Fri, 20 Aug 1999 18:52:23 EDT     many thanks to everyone who helped me locate the song I asked about. A fellow list member not only provided me with the words to the version I wanted, but he also scanned and sent me the music, and to him, = I'm grateful. Just a note: the one I wanted goes like " I woke up this morning =   with my mind stayed on Jesus....", and it repeats 3 times. Like I've said before, joining this (these) list(s) were the best things I've done in a very long time. Thanks all.....=3D)   Carlo     ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com

(back) Subject: Wanamaker Grand Court Organ From: KriderSM@aol.com Date: Fri, 20 Aug 1999 19:39:39 EDT   My wife and heard it several decades ago, and the sound reverberates = "like WOW!"   Access to the console is, er, was through a door behind the womens = lingerie (I believe) department. Of course, that was so long ago that I might have remembered that we walked through this department while my wife was = shopping. thgis was the price I needed to pay for her to accompany me to this installation. I gladly paid!!! :-)   Stan Krider   Jason D. Comet stated that he may possibly be taking a tour of the = Wanamaker Grand Court Organ and listening to a concert of it. He wanted to know if anyone else has had any experiences of any sort = relating to this monumental organ?

And all those luscious strings!     >Does anyone have an e-mail address?????     No, but I did hear some place that if you write/phone the curator in advance, they'll give you a tour through the organ. I don't know what it takes to play it.... Maybe it's easier than we think!     >Well, you've got the idea, but first, I think I've got to become a   >millionaire!     Heh. Won't get there by being a musician! Tell your parents to start saving their pennies for your inheritance!!! :)       >Well, I just can't wait until I park in the store's parking lot=20     Um.... I don't think there's a parking lot just for the store.... I usually take the train in from the suburbs, but there are public parking garages in the vicinity, to be sure.

No mistaking the Grand Court once you arrive there. :)     <italic> </italic>I think Claire, who is a member or officer of the Friends of the Wanamaker Organ, is on this list as well, and she can give you more information.     Meanwhile, would you mind if I posted your post to the Theatre Organ mailing list? Someone there might be able to answer your questions as well.     Have fun, Jason! =20     --Shirley

Do you have suggestions for a complimentary work, of about 15 or 20 minutes? Not too terribly hard, but sounds good? Mit orchestra, too. Thanks a million. --Neil Brown Barnegat, NJ USA
