(back) Subject: Apology From: George.Greene@rossnutrition.com Date: Thu, 25 Feb 1999 11:28:25 -0500     I am very, very sorry for any offense that I created with my remarks about Brother Billy-Bob, etc. I too am a believer, and I certainly did NOT intend to make fun of the central doctrines of Christianity!!!   My insensitive remarks were a product of my frustration with the "happy-clappy" wars that I have been fighting (and mostly losing) with the rest of our church staff over the past couple of years. Those of you who are in liturgical churches probably don't realize just how close Jim's and my remarks are to what is actually being preached by the "health and wealth", "feel-good" type ministers at the more evangelical end of the spectrum these days.   I tend to forget that other PipeChatters receive individual messages rather than the digest form, and I apologize for filling your mailboxes with a flippant one-liner. In the future I promise to make sure that the brain is engaged before putting the keyboard in gear.   Once again, I am very sorry for any offense that I caused. Now what say we drop this thread and get back to organic matters?

(back) Subject: Re: Music for 2000 (X-posted) From: ComposerTX@aol.com Date: Thu, 25 Feb 1999 13:56:34 EST   Steve, I'm the Arranger for the Turtle Creek Chorale. A couple of things that I've written that might interest you:   In collaboration with Rev. Mel White, I am writing "Carols for the New Millinium". It will follow closely the Anglican Serivce of Lessons and Carols, but the Turtles will perform it this Christmas with out the "Service" part, that is, the Scripture readings. Wonderful new perspectives from The Garden of Eden, to the Shepherds, to the Star Carol, and the Magi, and right now, where we are. It will be published in both TTBB and SATB, and will have piano only or full orchestration available.   The Turtles did a scholarship competition for high school juniors and seniors in the Dallas area for original lyrics for a song to be set to music by myself. The theme is, "Coming of Age in the New Millenium." The winning song is entitled, "Go On."   I also have a song that Marsha Stevens and I wrote for the 30th anniversary of Dr. King's March on Washington for Choir [TTBB or SATB], Soloist, and piano, or anything up to full orchestration. I also have the prerecorded track available on cassette or CD. It is "I Still Have a Dream," and the refrain is "Let Freedom Ring, Let It Soar . . . Join your hands! Love demands, 'Let Freedom Ring.' "   If any of these interest you, e-mail me, and I'll send you a hard copy,unless you have Finale97 on your puter.   Regards, Danny Ray   Need another Music Director? I love to travel. hehehe

One Swiss and one French. The latter from Strasbourg in Alsace-Lorraine.   JLS.

Humour is humour. Bad taste is exactly that. Maybe we could joke about, let's see, Jews, Blacks, Chinese, Indians, Hispanics, Gays, etc. etc.   I don't see anything humourous about things blasphemous. As a Catholic maybe I could lay some bad jokes on you about the Baptists or other protestant denominations.   I also thought that there were some guidelines as to what is appropriate or inappropriate in a chat line.

(back) Subject: Re: Pierre Cochereau. From: Innkawgneeto@webtv.net (N Brown) Date: Fri, 26 Feb 1999 01:02:25 -0500 (EST)   To reply to Richard Pinel's query about improv: Improvising is based on listening: listening to what is going on in the tune or whatever your improv is built upon. Improv is also based in large measure on harmony -- knowing the basic rules of chord progressions and then being daring enough to break them, (or honor them). Then, improv finds ways to utilize the various resources of the instrument; not necessarily using all of them in one sitting. :) You want to make a satisfying musical statement. Feel free to e mail me if you want me to delve further. I love to improvise and people seem to like hearing me do it. For our AGO choir festival, I did an improv on B-A-C-H. I was quite pleased when I heard the tape. That was a month ago, and people are still talking about it. I always feel like I'm setting up for myself a musical puzzle that I have to try to solve. It's fun if you let it be. Go for it!!!
