My mother was a fan of Ken Griffin. When I was a kid, we had some 45s of his Christmas music on the Mighty Hammond. Believe it or not, that's what got me interested in organ music. Plus the fact that Ken Griffin wasn't exactly a mud fence. Nice picture of him on the album cover.   Well, I'm off to bed.

(back) Subject: Re: Favorite Christmas Organ Pieces From: "VEAGUE" <dutchorgan@svs.net> Date: Thu, 27 Dec 2001 08:17:02 -0500   The Fox Christmas album I have was recorded at St. John The Divine in NYC. The cover is an artisis' rendition of snow and a blue starry night.   The selections are "Fabulously Fox" -some hard-core: one is a French piece that is so deep is makes you dizzy. Another has a 'fat lady' vocal- = Virgins Slumber Song. Nicely done and reverberant. The "I Saw Three Ships" has the pompous Posuanne en-chamade at the end of it, that it blows your speakers and wakes up the cat.   All in all, an excellent album, but NOT your typical Santa ho-ho stuff.   *******************************   George Wright's Christmas Album features GW on the cover holding a 4' = Tibia pipe at the toe. He has quite a grip! Recorded at his burned-out Pasadena studio 3m/27r Wurli back in the 60's, the album is typically George, with all the Santa trimmings.   Of particular note is his orchestral arrangement of "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" . I have played GWs recording of it and a symphony orchestra recording side-by-side. The same almost to a tee- the orchestral capabilities of GW and his Wurli are not to be ignored.   Alas, both albums are out of print. One may want to haunt used record = shops and hope for the best.   Rick

Fox gave them a Vox = Humana for the recording sessions, as the organ had none. It had its own little mahogany block with a tilt-tab mounted on it; when the Vox was on (it = wasn't affected by the combination action) a little blue pilot light came on.   Cheers,   Bud

Thanks!   The sets of hymn improvisations that were originally published by = Concordia have been regrouped and republished by MorningStar. I have = "Improvisations on General Hymns," "on Great Hymns of Faith," and "on Hymns of Praise." Many of the improvs are short and seem to be intended as intros or = bridges. Manz also has a number of pieces published separately by MorningStar; I just bought one on "I Want to Walk as a Child of the Light" that is entirely 3 against 2 (should be an educational experience!). As an Episcopalian I found "Great Hymns of Faith" most useful because it has a good arrangement of Slane. Not surprisingly, Manz's choices of tunes have a strong Lutheran bias, so YMMV.   All ye composers out there: please give us some preludes on tunes other than Bunessan and Nettleton. Gerald Near has filled in some significant gaps in the repertory with his collections -- at this time of year I especially appreciate his takes on Puer Nobis and Salzburg (Alle Menschen Mussen Sterben), which are set to both Epiphany and Easter hymns in the 1940 and 1982 Hymnals.
