That is self-evident.   My own experience, however, is that Clergy / Pastors / Church Authorities are more concerned these days with appointing an Organist who will share the particular doctrinal quirks of their denomination, rather than one who will simply do the job well.   Up to a point, of course, there is sense in that. It would be no good whatever appointing someone to an Organist's post in a Church where (s)he would = feel constrained to stand up and shout "HERESY" during the sermon. One assumes, however, that a sane Christian Organist would not apply for a position in a tradition which was totally alien to him / her. My objections start when people start questioning the validity of my personal faith - mustard-seed that it is - because my denominational tradition is different to theirs. By and large, = as an Anglican, I find Methodists and Romans to be very accepting of me as "brother", but fundamentalists want to "save" me, and that "rattles my cage", because Jesus did that, 2000 years ago, and it was given the Church's = public "stamp of approval" at my Baptism. It doesn;'t need to be done again !!   My experience of Lutherans is limited. What experience I have leads me to hold a high opinion of that tradition, as largely composed of sincere Christian people, welcoming to those of other traditions, and doctrinally "sound" without being doctrinally "picky".   And, of course, we owe them most of the Chorale-based repertoire, for = which Christendom will forever be in their debt <grin>   Mark Checkley. -----Original Message----- From: Alan Freed <afreed0904@earthlink.net> To: PipeChat <pipechat@pipechat.org> Date: Friday, June 11, 1999 07:28 Subject: Re: Bigoted nonconformists     >>From: "Mark Checkley" <xcs53@dial.pipex.com> >>To: "PipeChat" <pipechat@pipechat.org> >>Subject: Re: [Fwd: UU Church] >>Date: Fri, Jun 11, 1999, 1:11 PM > >> Whilst there seems to me to be great tolerance >> between Anglicans/Episcopalians and Roman Catholics, >> it is a tragic reality that many nonconformist congregations - >> particularly those on the evangelical / fundamentalist wing - >> would regard a track record of service to Rome or Canterbury >> as a negative parameter. > >True. > >> This, in fact, is appalling, and bespeaks a deep arrogance >> in that judgement is being passed that one is "not a Christian" >> unless one belongs to "our particular branch of the Club". > >Well, you are appalled rather easily.

I am very willing to accept that others may have found differently.   I have excellent and dearly-loved Christian friends in a variety of traditions, often far removed from my own "High-Church Anglican", not least a handful of West Indian Pentecostals, with whom I share a common interest in cricket.   Usually it is not the "rank and file" who are bigoted. I have found that most pew-occupying Christians are happy to welcome and respect other pew-occupying Christians of other traditions as equals and brothers.   More it is the LEADERS who - in the worst traditions of medieval Rome - often insist that all who do not comply with their particular doctrinal hobby horses are "unsaved" - or whatever.   One must simply take no notice - else one would get angry.   Mark Checkley.     -----Original Message----- From: WAYNE_BURCHAM@RSAUSA.COM <WAYNE_BURCHAM@RSAUSA.COM> To: PipeChat <pipechat@pipechat.org> Date: Friday, June 11, 1999 07:21 Subject: Re: [Fwd: UU Church]     > > >It is sad, but I generally agree with Mark.

When you bring it in the difference will then be noticeable.   Just add or remove ONE STOP between Hymn verses.   Play some bits - particularly any Anglican Chant - on a single 8' Flute = with no Pedal.   Piece of cake. MUCH EASIER than trying to play Evensong on a strange 3 Manual 50-stop monster.   Relax. Enjoy.   Mark Checkley. -----Original Message----- From: Richard Pinel <rpinelchat@musicman123.freeserve.co.uk> To: PipeChat <pipechat@pipechat.org> Date: Friday, June 11, 1999 09:28 Subject: AAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!     >Hi List, > >On Sunday I am playing evensong.

OMG!!!! SIX stops and no pistons???? Who would build such a thing??? Mess is a bit too vague, although I have seen it left as an indication to the tuner as to the nature of a problem (the trumpet is a "mess"). Could you be more specific?   Evensong is merely/simply another service of worship. If you can play Morning Prayer you can play Evensong. If you can play Holy Communion you can play Evensong. It's only a big deal if you make it so. Surely a parish with a six-stop organ is not doing huge and complex canticles and a string of victorial anthems requiring vast manipulations of those six knobs!   Relax and enjoy the Evensong. Use the swell pedal to control the shading and volume, and on the last stanza of "The day thou gavest" cast care to the winds and add that 8' Oboe d' amore! ;-)   Be sure to post the service music and let us know how it went.   Bruce & the Baskerbeagles ~~+~~+~~ rohrschok8@webtv.net ~~+~~+~~   Barking dogs don't bite, but they themselves don't know it. -- Shalom Aleichem

I'm sure I still have that picture around somewhere, so I'll try to get = it back up--maybe it'll give you some ideas. Personally, I wouldn't have my picture taken in front of a console, you run the risk of "busying" the composition and taking away from yourself. Far better to keep things simple. See the picture of Thomas Trotter in his Mozart CD. It's taken in front of a delicate 4' (2'?) facade. The shot clearly communicates the fact that he's an organist, but without all the clutter of most console shots. As for the shot that Bruce mentioned...Yes, I "borrowed" one of the dummies from our Mighty Moller at St. James--and rearranged the facade pipes so nobody noticed it was gone! It was about 4' long, so when I took the shot, my youngest brother was off-camera holding the end of the pipe at the proper angle. I wouldn't recommend using a facade pipe from an existing organ, however. After a bath and polish for the shoot, it stuck out when I returned it to the facade! With one clean pipe shining and the other seventy some-odd dummies covered in half a century of gook, I was faced with the choice of cleaning the whole facade, or "dirtying" the one to match...guess what I did.   Robert Horton, DMA Student University of Kansas Organ and Church Music   http://falcon.cc.ukans.edu/~gemshorn

HOpefully, the trend will moderate soon (there are signs). As I am fond of saying, there are snobs everywhere -- high church and low, classical music and contemp, country or rock, you name it. If it's not what I like, then it ain't good. Mind you, I was brought up in the South Baptist Convention, but what I do was not needed any longer ( or so it seemed). I'm glad I finally flew out of the nest, but boy, do I miss some of that down-home preaching once in a while.   Cheers, Neil, Barnegat, NJ USA

You can also play everything up and octave or down, depending on the needs. If there is a Unison Off tab, and a gt to gt 16 (for example), you can pull on 4' and 2', gt/gt 16 with unison off for even one more interesting possibility. JUST DON"T GO BELOW C below middle C -- tee hee. YOu can make the sound of adding 16' to your hymn playing, by doubling the right hand chord in the left hand. All kinds of ways to adapt a small organ to your needs. Don't forget the de riguer pedal solo!! You can do it, Richard. Let's hear how it goes. --Uncle Neil (improvisationally speaking)
