I have just checked it out, and have also been able to help my grand-daughter do a school project on the life of Mozart!   I could have done with the internet when I was boy at school!   Bob Conway  
(back) Subject: Today's Service. From: "Richard Pinel" <rpinelchat@musicman123.freeserve.co.uk> Date: Sun, 27 Jun 1999 16:05:53 +0100   Hi List,   My service today went really well. I think that I mentioned that the = church turned out to be United Reformed, not Methodist!!! I will firstly tell you about the electric organ. 2 Manuals, Full Pedal Board (C-F). Manual II Stops: Diapason Gedackt Dulciana Hohl Flute Flute Traverso Viol d'Orchestra Harmonics Horn   Couplers: Octave 4' Superoctave 2'   Trem   (Note, all the stops apart from the harmonics which just made the = harmonics louder, all of the stops sounded about the same just at different = volumes!)   Manual I No Stops!!!: Man II - Man I 8' Man II - Man I 4' Man II - Man I 2 2/3' Man II - Man I 2' Man II - Man I 1 3/5'   The trem couples through.   Pedal: 16' Contrabass 16' Echo Bass (the same as the contra, but quieter!!!) Man II - Ped 8' Man II - Ped 4'   There is a expression pedal controlling the whole organ.   Solo Stops (when pressed, they have the solo on the lower manual, and a flute on the upper, all other stops apart from the pedal are cancelled = out): Oboe - Sounds almost like an English Orchestral Oboe Clarinet - You can tell it is supposed to be a clarinet, but not very convincing! Trumpet - Sounds like a cornet (8',4',2',2 2/3',1 3/5')   Finally, there is a stop on its own called "Chorus". When not drawn the organ sounds normal, and when drawn it takes the edge off the tone, it = just quietens down the natural harmonics.   The service was like nothing I have ever seen (then, so is the organ!): The Minister was wearing leggings and a denim shirt. It was basically sing pray read sin pray sermon prayers! After the first hymn she decided on some audience participation. She got some volunteers up from the congregation and asked questions and they had = to move to an area depending on their answer. Then the first set of prayers. She made the congregation sing, = unaccompanied (without even a starting note), in a round a Taize Gloria. The = congregation knew it, (not as a round) but when the Minister sang it through to demonstrate she kept on getting bits wrong!!! The congregation was a bit dazzled and some sang it right, some the priests way, and some umm, just added harmonics!!! This round, when done for real got lower and lower!!!   Anyway, the rest of the service went ok. I did my first 3 liturgical improvisations, which went well. The first was after the voluntary as they came in, the second was at the offertory (I was asked to use the tune to = one of the worship songs which the congregation didn't know so they would get the feel for it) and the 3rd was the closing voluntary because I was too tired to play the Bach I had planned (this didn't matter as there is no printed order of service for the congregation).   I enjoyed this, even though I would never choose this form of worship over good old Anglican (I don't want any flames, as I am not putting down other denominations, but it just isn't for me) worshipping.   To top it all, I got =A315 out of it!   Richard

(back) Subject: service list - 4th Sunday After Trinity From: Bud/burgie <budchris@earthlink.net> Date: Sun, 27 Jun 1999 17:34:05 -0700   St. Matthew's Anglican Catholic Church 1723 Westcliff Drive Newport Beach CA 92660-5529 USA   The Rev'd Fr. Stephen C. Scarlett, Rector The Rev'd Mr. Richard L. Stapp, Deacon Bud Clark, Organist/Choirmaster   Traditional Episcopal Worship, etc. etc. etc.   Solemn High Mass (yep!) at 10:15 a.m.   Voluntary - Arioso in A - Bach Hymn - I Love Thy Kingdom, Lord (St. Thomas, Williams) Introit - Dominus Illuminatio - Mode 7 Kyrie - Willan Gloria - Scottish Chant Psalm 119:25-32 Adhaesit pavimento - Anglican chant Alleluia - St. Luke 6:38b - Tone 6 Solo - The Whole Armour of God - Humphreys (they CLAPPED at the end; they NEVER clap for ANYTHING ... grin) Sanctus/Benedictus - Willan Great Amen - McNeil Robinson in D Major Agnus - Willan Communion - Diligam te, Domine - Tone 1 Hymn - What A Friend We Have In Jesus - Erie Hymn - Lead On, O King Eternal - Lancashire Hymn - Day By Day - Sumner Voluntary - Basse de Trompette - Dandrieu   They WAILED on "What A Friend" ... the Rector and the retired choir diva gritted their teeth. God FORBID the congregation should sing anything they LIKE at Mass (grin). I THREATENED to play it on the piano; the choir told me to behave (grin).   Just a relaxed summer Sunday ... the choir's off for July and August. Morning Prayer starts next week; Friday 6 a.m. Morning Prayer (WITH music) the week after. So much for RESTING during July and August. Oh well, that's what they pay me the big bucks for (yeah, RIGHT!).   Cheers,   Bud
