Moyer" <kmoyer@marauder.millersv.edu> Date: Mon, 1 Mar 1999 21:50:22 -0500 (EST)     My thanks to Bud for his information, albeit mixed with questions. As best I recall these things, he's fairily "with it," but I, too, would value anyone's additional information about the Leipzig liturgy.   Do I recall correctly that Bach was fired at Muehlhausen not so much because of how he played while the people sang but rather that his _choralvorpsielen_ were so complex that the people couldn't identify the chorale tune and thus did not know what to sing when it was time to do so? Somehow I have assumed that they, too, sang the chorale in unison _a cappella_. Can anyone "clean me up," to use Bud's line, as well?   Thanx. Karl E. Moyer Lancaster PA

All of my Wurlitzer reed ranks have a brass stiffener that the tuning wire goes through. This was fairly standard on Wurlitzer reeds.   Later, Phil L.

Brown     Speaking of jazz improvs on the organ, we students here at Concordia had our Organ Student's Banquet last night with honored guest Dr. Ore and his wife Connie. It was a BLAST!!! To top the evening off, we played stump the organist with Dr. Ore. We gave him a tune out of an old Anglican hymnal that he had NEVER seen (and this fact was amazing to me, that he had never seen this hymn) and had him improvise a 4 movement organ symphony.   I. Introduction and Fanfare II. Jazz (make it strut, and boy did he! He ended up playing part of it with a boogie bass!) III. Fugue IV. Tocatta   He went to town!! It lasted about 15 minutes, and at the very end, he did glissandos on both the keyboards AND the pedals before closing in a typical Dr. Ore cadenza. It was SPECTACULAR!!!!   Chris Mullen   ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com

(back) Subject: Re: Bach's liturgy From: Bud/burgie <budchris@earthlink.net> Date: Mon, 01 Mar 1999 21:27:45 -0800   As I mentioned in the post to Alan, there are several worked-out accompaniments in Vol. 6 of the Widor-Schweitzer Bach, and Schweitzer talks fairly extensively about the practice of accompanying the chorales, which evidently was practiced at Muhlhausen but not at Leipzig. It appears that they ARE accompaniments and not chorale preludes.   Karl E.

I figured someone'd beat me to the punch. Somehow, I'm always the last one to know about questions, so I'm always the last to answer. Oh well :-).     Chris   ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com

In 1997, I attended the Regional AGO convention in Buffalo, NY and heard some incredible turn-of- the-century organs: Hook&hastings, Schlicker, Johnson, etc. Wow, what an aural feast. Those Buffalo organs are so warm and inviting. Perhaps builders will address your comments. Neil    
(back) Subject: Re: Lousy rooms as justification for no pipe organ From: Bud/burgie <budchris@earthlink.net> Date: Mon, 01 Mar 1999 21:59:02 -0800   I heard those same organs at an AGO National (?) many years ago. The Johnson-Schlicker is gone now, I think, or at least relocated.   Bud   N Brown wrote:   > Dear Bud, > you bring up some valid points.

(back) Subject: Re: Bach's From: Innkawgneeto@webtv.net (N Brown) Date: Tue, 2 Mar 1999 01:01:50 -0500 (EST)   Speaking of Bach, has anyone had experience with the "Tennessee Players" and their Bach/Schweitzer drama? I have ambivalent feelings about whether to consider this program or not. Has anyone seen the program? Done it? Your comments would be most helpful. Thanks, Neil Brown (a newbie to the list)
