He was a member of that church and had shown an interest in the organ. At the conclusion of the recital we gave him a Certificate of Thanks for playing in the recital, and a one-year student membership in the AGO. The played again last year on the summer series.   > I really see the need to encourage this young > man and I hope that we can get him involved > in our Chapter soon.   bruce cornely cremona84000@webtv.net

Clark is also very familiar with the "other end" of the organ, since he does tonal finishing and I think he received a "Technician of the Year" award, or something along those lines, from ATOS a few years ago. In Columbus, we have the privilege of hearing Clark as the featured organist for the Ohio Theatre Summer Movie Series, and he can really put the Mighty Morton through its paces! He also plays for a silent film every year, and he does a terrific job there, too.   I agree with Stan--Clark Wilson is a tremendous organist; by all means go hear him if you ever have an opportunity!

(back) Subject: Mathias From: "Charles Brown" <clmoney@cybernex.net> Date: Mon, 15 Mar 1999 15:40:14 -0500   One of the benefits of having a classical music website such as mine is that I get review recordings. I just got one that might interest this list. It is choral music by the Welsh composer William Mathias.   I have to confess that I knew the name but did not have a tremendous knowledge of his work. After one listening, this has become my favorite recording. The name of it is "The Doctrine of Wisdom" and was recorded with a choir in Cape Cod, Mass conducted by Elizabeth Patterson. James E. Jordan, Jr. was the the excellent organist.   Mathias lived from 1934 - 1992 and, despite the atonal movement during his lifetime, was a strong tonalist. The recording consist of a setting of the Missa Brevis for organ and choir, the Rex Gloria for acapella choir, and various anthems with various accompaniments. The recording company is Paraclete Press.   If you like English choral music, this is a must!!   Charles E. Brown http://www.classicalcorner.com      
(back) Subject: Orgy From: "VEAGUE" <dutchorgan@svs.net> Date: Mon, 15 Mar 1999 17:28:35 -0500   Is anyone familiar with the recording +ACI- Organ Orgy, A Wagner Sound Experience +ACI- Main organist is Anthony Newman, with several assistants pulling stops and working swell pedals. It is recorded on the great Aeolean-Skinner at St. John The Divine in NYC. The selections are all Wagner, including Ride of the Valkyres. An excellent record. The State Trumpet will blow the dust off the furniture. My only frown is, Ride could have been played a bit slower. I've had this recording for about 25 years now, and it has yet to fail me in a rousing sound experience.   Rick.

Newman's high speed performance's somehow don't seem synonymous with and "orgy". ;-) ....although it should make for some very exciting playing.   I recall after hearing Anthony Newman play a recital, several of us were chatting with him when he announced that he was recording the complete works of Bach. Our professor smiled and quipped, "Ah! that should be a very exciting record!"   What other selections are on the "Orgy"?   bruce cornely cremona84000@webtv.net

But when, unintentionally or intentionally, it crosses over into leaving no room for other opinions and/or making or implying that those who have different opinions are somehow inferior, then it's a problem. At least this idea applies to things that have been on post lately. There WOULD be something wrong with someone who advocates crime, for example, and our reactions would/should be different. All's forgiven as far as I'm concerned. From all I can tell, we will all make mistakes and learn as long as we're on this planet ... I've certainly make my fair share!   Jason   >I second that motion... >I will no longer share my opinions...... since it gets me into trouble..... >Therefore, I will remain a lurker. > >John >
