(back) Subject: inclusive language...again From: Icorgan@aol.com Date: Tue, 9 Mar 1999 21:23:52 EST   This thread seems to have died, but I couldn't resist sharing this letter = to the editor which appeared in yesterday's student newspaper here. I think t= he letter makes it clear what has been going on here the last few weeks, and points out the absurd lengths to which this administration (and others) w= ill go to be more politically correct than the other guy. Do you think we poss= ibly have to many administrators without enough to do? Here's the letter...   I am happy to see that the UI administration has finally gotten its act together in removing the sexist term "freshman" from its vocabulary. Howev= er, it shouldn't stop there. Many other sexist terms are commonplace in today'= s vocabulary and should be eradicated as quickly as possible. For example, we must never call ladies "women." This politically incorrect term has been plaguing our language for centuries, and it is time to take = a stand. Ladies are not men. Yet the term "woman" (which contains the root "man") is used to describe them. Similarly, we cannot label those of the s= ex opposite to men as =93female." Ladies are most certainly not "male" (as an= y reasonably competent biology book will make clear). We shouldn=92t stop here though. It would be a sign of willingness to succ= umb to society's intolerant and male-chauvinist-pig-like ways if we did. Ladies a= re assuredly not human. They cannot be classified as part of mankind because = of the presence of that detestable root "man." We must be bold, firm and clearheaded, labeling them for what they truly are: the defenseless, overl= y sensitive, weaker gender that requires much protection and care. Think about it. They hold the majority, yet they . are continually lobbied= to and treated like a minority. In the practical scope of things, they are su= b- human. Because they are not men they are not on an equal scope with the re= st of the human race. It is only logical to treat them this way. Suppose one were to be involved in a terrible car wreck, killing many girl= s in the process. That person ought not to be tried for manslaughter, but just = for the damages to the vehicles in question. Of course, if a man were killed i= n a collision, that would be a different story altogether. You see, even our l= egal language reflects this truth. Many thanks to the UI administration for removing the gender-neutral term "freshman" from its vocabulary. It is high time for such action to be take= n. It is far too flattering (and untrue) for ladies to be classified as "freshmen." We simply need to follow this reasoning to its logical conclus= ion and complete the de-humanization of that sex opposite to men.   And now back to our music... Maynard

(back) Subject: Re: Recital vs. Concert From: "Karl E. Moyer" <kmoyer@marauder.millersv.edu> Date: Tue, 9 Mar 1999 21:32:23 -0500 (EST)     The _Harvard Dictionary_ should help us on this topic:   CONCERT: A public performance of music before an audience .... A performance by a soloist, with or without accompanist, is usuallty called a recital.   RECITAL: A concert given by a small number of performers, most often a soloist, perhaps with an accompanist. The term was first used in this way in an advertisement for a performance on the piano by Liszt in London in 1840. In a booklet designed to accompany his textbook _Music - An Appreciation_, Dr. Roger Kamien writes, A recital is a program by a soloist or by two performers (soloist and accompanist, or a duo). A concert is a program by a chamber ensemble, orchestra, band or chorus; there are also rock, jazz and pop concerts. I think this clarifies the term better than either of the above definitions in terms of how we actually use the term.   So it would seem that the word _concert_ is a more general word and _recital_ a more specific word that indicates solo performance. An individual organist thus plays a recital, not a concert.   Actually, a recital might even include things such as sonatas for two soloists and accompanist or like the famous Bartok Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion. Apart from Renaissance or baroque-era usages, the word _sonata_ normally implies a recital, not a concert.   Memorization has nothing to do with this terminology. Indeed, it is standard practice for sonatas to be played in recital WITH MUSIC, as for example when playing Cesar Franck's Sonata for Piano and Violin; but that would be recital fare, not "concert" fare. Conversely, concerto soloists in CONCERTS usually play by memory. Choir sings concerts, whether or not they hold music. I have played organ recitals both with and without music.   Hope this helps. Cordially,   Karl E. Moyer Lancaster PA

Good piano technique is a "must have prerequisite" for good organ technique (ie. especially in playing German Baroque and French Romantic literature). Piano technique strengthens fingers and promotes "finger independance" which allows us to play running passages and ornaments with great precision.   John

(back) Subject: Northminster Church - ANOTHER GOOD JOB From: KWQT65A@prodigy.com (MR SAND LAWN) Date: Tue, 9 Mar 1999 22:19:30, -0500   Just to add another church to John Gambill's good position. I am so lucky to have a position at Northminster Church in Monroe, Louisiana. This is a ten year old congregation with a deep commitment to the best of choral music, liturgical arts, liturgical dance, and deeply intelligent sermons. With a seating capacity of 170, hard floors, hardwood in the entire chancel, high ceiling and no sound systems, it is ideal for music. The church has a 1980 2/15 Moller tracker organ which is the perfect size for the building. There is a choir of twenty two excellent musicians (mostly)! We present four concerts a year usually with chamber orchestra. There is money in the budget to allow me to attend conferences and conventions that I feel are necessary. It's hard to believe a church like this (inclusive language, by the way) in the northeast corner of Louisiana. I thank my lucky stars every day when I sit down to practice, and especially on Sunday morning when I hear the congregation singing like crazy during the processional hymn. May you all have the experience of feeling truly appreciated for the work you love to do.   Sand Lawn

The older man that I referred to before would not take me for organ until I had completed 6 years of piano,,and for the first 2 years of organ I alternated between piano one week and organ the next. I had a definite mental block on the piano end of it,,which still obtains,,,so I couldnt tell you what the reason was that I had to alternate.   Cheers, ---Roc

Me, well, I jump right in on the organ. I guess one can learn keyboard technique on either instrument ... personally, I prefer learning notes on a nice Principal 8 or Flute 8 (or 8+4) over the piano. Different strokes, as they say.   Jason   ---------- >From: theorganist@webtv.net (William Lengyel) >To: pipechat@pipechat.org (PipeChat) >Subject: Re: Who sets techique?

Mixture III 19th, 22nd, 26th   Either way, It will sound astounding as long as the mixtures blend and do not overpower the rest of the organ. I have seen either of the above done on several installations.

(was Bish TBN time) From: theorganist@webtv.net (William Lengyel) Date: Wed, 10 Mar 1999 00:09:55 -0500 (EST)   Hi Listerettes/Listers,   It may help, but I do not think it is or should be required. I didn't have to learn how to drive (ride) a motorcycle before I drove a car. Does a Doctor have to take a few years of Veterinary medicine before going to med school?   I spend 45 minutes 4 days a week on finger exercises. Have for 28 years.   I am a Realtor as well. If someone comes to me to purchase a 4,000 square foot house, after living in a 400 square foot studio, I don't tell them they should live in a 2000 square foot house for a few years first. Piano before organ makes about as much sense.   I am opinionated/stubborn but open minded. (American, 50/50 German/Hungarian, whadda y'all expect)!   Change my mind!   Nite-Nite, Bill
