(back) Subject: Re: church musician as servant From: "Mark Checkley" <xcs53@dial.pipex.com> Date: Mon, 14 Jun 1999 22:34:24 +0100   Bruce,   I hadn't heard that one. However, I have never conducted an orchestra, I don't want to conduct an orchestra, and I wouldn't have the first idea how to conduct an orchestra. Orchestras don't - to my knowledge - play a great deal of Palestrina or Byrd.   On an entirely different note, you may be interested in this "old coconut" which constitutes part of a chain of correspondence I am having at this time.   Mark.     ...................................The subject of Musicians pay is an interesting one.   For myself, I do not accept money for making music in Church.   This is not because I am being sanctimonious, and I certainly think no less of those who do.   I just find that, by "safeguarding my amateur status" I have a great deal more freedom.   As an employee of the Church I would, in the last analysis, have to "do as I was told". I wouldn't mind that, if there was any chance at all of being paid a proper, professionally salary - say =A315, 000 p.a. for the 20-odd hours a week I put in.   However, the =A3960 per annum that is actually on offer is not anything near enough to "buy" my "obedience".   So I do it as a hobby and then, when the Clergy ask me to do something I really feel is unacceptable, I can just say "sorry, I don't do that; if you want THAT sort of thing you'll just have to hire a professional". It's quite remarkable how quickly the "requirement" ceases to be a "requirement"; further, over the years, the Clergy have simply learned not to ask.   The result is that we are able to maintain a decent, traditional "Choir and Organ" style of worship, with the wholehearted approval of the Congregation, instead of getting "sucked in" to the worst aspects of banality which, sadly, is what the Clergy would put in place if they had their way. Yes, they could sack me, but A. I have a great deal of credibility, particularly amongst choristers' parents, and everyone would want to know why and B. They would have to pay serious money to find a replacement - if, indeed, they could find one at all.   I'm lucky. Church Music is my hobby, and I earn a good salary in my secular employment in Software Support. I appreciate it's very different for people who are much better and more highly qualified musicians than I, and who require to earn at least a significant part of their living from a church post. However, I DON'T think =A3960 pa would be much use even to them. I suspect that the reality is that a village church would be unlikely to be able to support a worthwhile music programme - in whatever style - unless someone was willing to do it either "for free" or virtually so.   Mark Checkley.   -----Original Message----- From: bruce cornely <rohrschok8@webtv.net> To: PipeChat <pipechat@pipechat.org> Date: Monday, June 14, 1999 09:58 Subject: Re: church musician as servant     >... old humourous definition of the term > "rallentendo" >You know - a word which, when it appears in > the score, causes the singers to glance up to > determine if, by some chance, a conductor > happens to be present.

The console was rescued from a garage after the previous owner passed away before he finished rebuilding it. We have obtained 99 % of the parts but some pieces were never located.   Does anyone have any Kimball/Welte console parts lying around that might replace the following:   1. One of the upper manual keys (with or without ivory). email me = privately and I'll check which one is missing.   2. The two end panels/covers that form the ends of the horse shoe which face the organist   3. The two top caps that were pegged on top of the console side walls.   I would also appreciate any directons for having them re-made by any one = so talented.   Thanks   John V
