From: Richard Schneider <arpncorn@davesworld.net> Date: Tue, 11 May 1999 12:09:54 -0700   Dear Listers:   This far, the response to the request for the reading list has been pretty substantial. Some of you have (or maybe not!)received this privately yesterday, although some have indicated they had problems with the file attachments. Hard to understand, since they were done in dead ASC II!   Since I can't underline titles using ASC II (or at least: I don't know how!), I've put the titles inside quote marks.   In any event, follows is the list.

(back) Subject: to clarify a point... From: "Carlo Pietroniro" <concert_organist@hotmail.com> Date: Tue, 11 May 1999 14:16:36 EDT   dear list,   when I referred to the people I know as being organ players and not organists, I was referring to just that: people I know, meaning who live around me, people I see on a regular basis, which by the way does not include any of you. Now, if upon hearing this, it MAY or MAY NOT refer to you. I'm lucky to have the time to spend several hours a day practicing because my church job is my full-time job, as well as teaching piano and organ. We are all different and I respect that, which is why I wrote that it was my "humble opinion". We are all allowed to express our opinions, aren't we? Good, now that that's out of the way, I can answer a question that a fellow list member asked. The toccata and fugue in d minor is supposed to be the signing of the register solo and I've yet to meet the couple.   Carlo   p.s. I don't know about the rest of you, but I for one can take criticism, either positive or negative.....=)     ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com

But then, most folks can't separate it from the Phantom of the Opera, wailing away down in the Parisian Sewers. A pity.   Perhaps she would be willing to consider the Toccotta in F Maj?   Dennis

(back) Subject: T&F in dm... From: "Carlo Pietroniro" <concert_organist@hotmail.com> Date: Tue, 11 May 1999 14:38:37 EDT   Dennis et al,   I too love this piece. Apparently, the bride is a fan of classical organ music and wants at least one big concert piece at the wedding. I ran off about 10 different titles to her while on the phone and she wants this one. She has to run it by her fiancée, but for now it's a go. Little does she know that it might be a no-go when the priest hears this. He likes good music too, but I don't know if he'll go for this. I've played the F major toccata at weddings before as a postlude as well as other pieces not usually associated with weddings, but never this. Oh well, we'll have to wait and see. Who knows, maybe I can write words to it and have the soloist sing along.........*cringe*   Carlo     ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com

Seems to me, though, the piece would be too long at the signing, and I can see where it maybe wouldn't be appropriate to that point of the service. Maybe everyone could agree with it as a prelude?   Dennis

It's called "Patriotic Suite" by Noel Goemanne. All the pieces come from American songs (the composer's name threw me off) and the 3rd piece of 3 is a variation of "When Johnny Comes Marching Home" - the first is from "God of Our Fathers" and the second is America the Beautiful. I'm not sure if the music is still in print, although my score isn't that old (has a slick cover)   Justin Karch Organist, Holy Trinity LCMS Rome, GA  
(back) Subject: Re: Just Curious From: George.Greene@rossnutrition.com Date: Tue, 11 May 1999 15:48:02 -0400     In response to Carlo's recent question, I am an analytical chemist, a very slow bicyclist, and a (mostly) one-footed organist. Like several other PipeChatters, I also enjoy trains (it's kind of hard to avoid when your father works as a yard brakeman for forty years!) Organ playing is an avocation and I do not give recitals (as if anyone would want to hear me if I did!)   I have been organist at Sunbury (Ohio) Church of the Nazarene for the past ten years, currently playing a 24-"rank" (well, it has 24 tone generators), two-manual, 1976-vintage Saville electronic organ which the church obtained about a year ago. There was nothing wrong with the Saville; another church just wanted to get rid of it because they had purchased a new Allen with lots of bells and whistles.   I have been in seventh heaven with the "new" organ, since our previous instrument was a small Conn electronic with self-contained speakers. Just like a kid with a new toy, I nearly ran everyone out of our old sanctuary (seating capacity about 200) the first few weeks, but eventually realized what an "aural assault" I was inflicting on the congregation and "toned it down" quite a bit. We moved into a new facility, which seats about 500, in January and the Saville sounds MARVELOUS in the new room.   As for home practice instruments, I have a "Mighty WurliTzer" spinet piano (that's right; a piano, not a TO) and a Kawai keyboard (which I rarely use.) I am also thinking about investing in a kazoo, which I think would give those inane "happy clappy" choruses (we are forced to endure a "six-pack" of them at the beginning of every Sunday AM service) the proper amount of dignity and respect :).     -George Greene
