(back) Subject: Re: Speaking of Lorenz From: "Dr. Darryl Miller" <organdok@safari.net> Date: Wed, 09 Jun 1999 21:01:35 -0400   Hi, Y'all!   There were, indeed, some periods when there were a few gems among a lot of junque. When David Hegarty was the editor in the mid-70's, he worked hard to find some fine music in the public domain (a work by MacMaster comes to mind, as well as a lot of the smaller Widor pieces) as well as some modern pieces which were written for his magazine. Joanne Hart Buck also worked = on that magazine and brought a lot of integrity to it, as well. When Gil and Lani edited it, there was a lot of their stuff and some extracts from some other Lorenz publications.   Yours,   Darryl by the Sea

In fact, we were the two finalists for a position, and he got it. Yes, there were a ton of names used by the Lorenz staff writers (I think I heard that Ellen Jane had 25 listed with ASCAP), but Gil Martin and Lani Smith, are, indeed *real* = people.   I remember hearing the late Ellen Jane Lorenz Porter tell that during the War, she single handedly wrote and edited all the magazines, both choral and organ, for the company. And why I'm at it, don't sell that lady short, she was very smart, very saavy, and had a better grasp of counterpoint and theory than many college faculty I've known.   If you haven't read her book, "Glory Halleluha," the story of turn-of-the-century hymnody and the camp-meeting spirituals, you should, = it will give you a greater appreciation and understand of some of our native American hymnody.   Yours,   Darryl by the Sea

(back) Subject: Re: Lorenz From: Rod Murrow <murrows@pldi.net> Date: Wed, 09 Jun 1999 21:23:07 -0500   I have to agree with Bruce et al on this one. For a long time, I wouldn't even LOOK at a Lorenz publication. I do, occasionally, though - with some of Dale Wood's music, Emme Lou Diemer, and a few other writers. Their "Sacred Music Press" seems to be the branch with the integrity...but the "Bach Made Practical" and those kinds of publications aren't worth looking at, IMHO.   I always try to encourage people looking for "easier" literature to look at other publishing houses, particularly the offerings by MorningStar. Having to find easy music is not the problem - settling for a steady diet of Lorenz mail-order monthly mags IS. Much better literature is available - but people have to look for it.   Another of my peeves is that most of our music stores tend to stock shelf after shelf of the Lorenz crap - and precious little else (where's the stuff from Concordia, Augsburg, Warner Bros., MorningStar, and the others?) - so of course, that's what many people will buy. PLEASE encourage your music stores to carry good music publishers!   One of my favorite pieces, Dale Wood's arrangement of Wondrous Love, I first discovered in one of those monthly Lorenz mags - then it was published in a Lorenz publication - so the thing is to LOOK FOR GOOD MUSIC...there's plenty of it out there.   My 2 cents for the evening...   Rod Murrow

It starts out way down deep in his throat and slowly builds up pressure until it bubbles up into a full scale howl. Miles is a "quick-start" and has his own trade mark of alternating pitches at an interval of a fourth, much like an English bobby car! Thanks doG these guys aren't normal.

Regarding Mr. Yanni's improvisational skills: My mother went to a Yanni concert on time, and was thoroughly impressed with him. I don't know how she came to know it, possibly program notes or through a friend, but she told me that he doesn't (read: can't) read a note of music.

Guilmant, OP 66 (IF the K-E opus number is wrong, this one is too; these both have the same opus number.) Bruckner, Complete Organ Works Most of the contents of Faber & Faber's European Organ Music of the 16, 17, & 18th Centuries in 18 volumes, three each from N. Germany, S. Germany, England, France, Italy, and Iberia.   Bear with me here. It is currenty 1000 miles from one end of my organ library to the other, as I am moving, and do not yet have it all in one place. Two of my of the volumes that _always_ are found on the shelf behind the organ bench are the Nehlybel's volume of 29(?) short preluded by Kirby, and the volumes of Georg Muffat's Apparatus Musicorganisticus, (at least IIRC it is something like that. These are multiple variations on short themes (8 or twelve bars each, maybe double that), So, you need two minutes, you pay the theme and 3 or 4 variations; you need double that, you play 8. Pachelbel wrote similar types of compositions.   Finally, improvise something. Pick a subject from a hymn tune--doesn't have to be the whole verse, and see what you can do with it. For example, take the phrase from the hymn tune "Toplady" to which the words "...let me hide myself in thee..." is usually sung. Play around with that. I have done this in the past, and expect to do so in the future.   (BTW, in my last congregation, this last was an effective technique for dealing with a favorite song of a couple of individuals who liked a song of questionable merit. I'd improvise on a phrase from the song; they would pick up on it, but few other people would, and everyone was happy.)
