(back) Subject: Words of Support for the AGO From: "Dr. Darryl Miller" <organdok@safari.net> Date: Thu, 10 Jun 1999 07:30:35 -0400   Hi, Y'all!   I love the Guild. I've been a member of the AGO since I was 16! I attend all Nationals and most of the regional conventions for my area (and some regionals out of my area when the programming is good). In most of the chapters I've been a member or officer, I always enjoyed the fellowship = and really couldn't wait for the monthly meetings. As I co-chaired the Region IV Convention in 1995 in Nashville, I had nothing but complete cooperation and support from National and can't praise that office enough.   Now . . . there a few old negative farts in the Guild, actually there are = a lot of negative members, but I just don't fool with 'em! Get busy, support your Chapter and the National! It, truly, will make you a better person = and better musician. If you don't like something, make a positive move to correct it . . . but do something, just don't sit and complain!   Yours,   Darryl by the Sea

(Keller or Kauffmann) The Organ in Church -- Frank Asper Partitas - Bach and Pachelbel   However, if the learner/beginner is an accomplished pianist, they should have little trouble using a book of pedal exercises to get going. Practice three hymns each day, and before they know it, just about anything will be possible. The exciting rewards are well worth the effort. Chances are, if the student takes a mediocre, "I'll just sort of do the best I can" attitude, they will seldom progress farther than being a mediocre organist who REALLY doesn't play the organ. We certainly don't need any more of those running around (at least with both hands). ;-)   Bruce & the Baskerbeagles ~~+~~+~~ rohrschok8@webtv.net ~~+~~+~~   Barking dogs don't bite, but they themselves don't know it. -- Shalom Aleichem

Nun Danket is pretty top-end for "easy " music, but in the other volumes of his Chorale Improvisations (I think around 9 or 12!!) there are exquisite improvisations--not merely chorale preludes, and there is a difference. Don't let all the notes scare you away either. Evidently K-E liked to save paper by writing in teenie-weenie note values. Many pianists see 32nd notes and think, "hot damn.... fassssstttttt". Not so with K-E. It is the most luscious music you'll ever encounter and should be in everybody's repertoir. I can't believe I left it off my list. (Oh, the shame of it!!!) ;-) >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. I heartily agree.

JOHN   FOR SALE. 1967 Reuter organ console from First Presbyterian Church of St. Petersburg, Florida. Console has 3 manuals and is made of dark walnut. The keys are ivory and are in excellent condition. The console sits atop a 6' x 6' movable platform with a steel framework and a plywood top. The console has 89 drawknobs, 45 on the left side and 44 on the right side. There are 20 tilting tablets above the Swell manual. To the left of the tablets are 3 keyed switches for turning on blowers to the Main organ, the Antiphonal organ, and the Trompette en Chamade. To the right are 6 signal lights for signalling various parts of the church. There are 8 general pistons and 6 divisional pistons for Swell, Great, Positiv and Pedal. There are 3 divisional pistons for the Antiphonal stops. The divisional pistons of all 3 keyboards can be connected to the Pedal divisional pistons via on/off buttons. The console has two expression pedals and a Crescendo pedal, 2 Full Organ buttons, Swell Reeds on/off, Pedal Reeds on/off, setter button, lock for pistons, with indicator lights for Crescendo, Full Organ and Reeds on/off functions.

I thought the > request was for preludes of about 2 minutes >... many of these are MUCH longer than that. True! But they can all be nicely shortened to fit into the 2-minute slot. Imagine the reaction by some people in the congregation when the organist plays a 2-minute version of Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring, and they want to hear more of it. The request might go to the minister for an extension on the prelude time so that all of the piece can be heard. In addition, the organist is learning quality music which can be used in recital, music which is challenging technically and musically, and at the same time, learning how to reduce a piece of music for time purposes. Very few composers of consequence write 2-minute pieces.   Bruce & the Baskerbeagles ~~+~~+~~ rohrschok8@webtv.net ~~+~~+~~   Barking dogs don't bite, but they themselves don't know it. -- Shalom Aleichem

I still own a few of his recordings and find myself preferring others who follow a composer's wishes more closely.   I certainly respect his technique and the fact that he has developed a completely separate style of playing many great works for organ; that he is visionary in what he does is not in question as far as I'm concerned.   However, when I listen to his playing, I find myself yearning for registrations, tempi, and phrasing which is more indicative of what was originally written and I have, on numerous occasions, decided against purchasing more of his recordings because they stray from what I like to hear.   I must admit, also, that there are some pieces of art in our local museum which don't make much sense to me. This is not to say that they are lacking in creativity or genius, or that they are not making a contribution to art in general. However, for others, those same pieces alone make it worth the trip.   Gillou's playing is like that for me. I don't enjoy much of what he does (especially with works of other composers), and realize he's straining the =   limits of scholarship and traditionally accepted performance practices. However, that may lead to new ideas which are more in the mainstream, or at the very least, his interpretations will allow people to articulate what they like about other people's playing.   Mark       Mark Huth Rodgers Instruments, LLC mhuth@rodgers.rain.com http://www.rodgersinstruments.com   =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D   In some cultures what I do would be considered normal.    
(back) Subject: Re:Jean Gillou From: Bob Conway <conwayb@post.queensu.ca> Date: Thu, 10 Jun 1999 18:13:18 -0400   I am not one of Jean Gillou's greatest fans, but I must tell a story that occurred here in Kingston.   Our one and only classical record store was managed by a lady with very = odd taste, - she played the most odd records in the store, and was well known for her eclectic offerings.   Several years ago she lighted on some of the Gillou CDs of transcriptions, one being his version of Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an exhibition". She played it at every possible moment when the store was open, until some of the "regulars" had to tell her that we were fed up with it all the time. Would you believe, she was able to open her order books and show us that she had sold so many of Gillou's CDs that it was a real business success! It also appeared that many of the devotees had never bought an organ CD in their lives before, and here they were, buying Gillou's recordings and coming back for more.   I made a few enquiries via my radio programme "Voicings" and found that, indeed, I had a bigger audience than before - mostly due to the fact that thedear lady had not only sold a lot of organ CDs - but she had also promoted my radio programme at the same time!   So, I for one would not sell M. Gillou short! - Although I still do not own any of his recordings, I did acquire some of them for the radio station library, - alas, no longer given air time, since last October when I retired as an Organic Dee-jay!   If it gets them to like organ music, so be it! Might one have said the same about Virgil Fox? I am not sure, but I think that I have all the re-issued CDs, and a lot of his LPs that I have come across over the past 40 years, - and they were regularly aired!   I rather miss the chance to do so now, but it is a case of "Annie Domino"!   Bob Conway   CFRC - FM 101.9 in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.

As a member of the UU Church I am shocked that you would think it unethical, a sin, or a bad resume item to work for a UU Church. The church has a wonderful history going back to Reformation times. It was important in the founding of this country as many of our founding fathers were Unitarian. Remember that the Hooks were Unitarian and built one of their finest organs for their home church at Jamaica Plain (part of Boston). Many present day "saints" including Schweitzer have been Unitarians.   Please look again at where we stand, and I think you will find more substance there than you assume. Look first at the Hymnal. Look at the Covenant and Principles and Purposes in the front of the book, and then at the excellence of the contents. Consult other publications available at you UU Church. You will find that some UU members do consider themselves Christian, and others do not. There is no coercion either way. I thank God every day for the Unitarians, and that I do not have to be a Methodist any more. Roy Redman   Since everyone else had had their say---
