(back) Subject: crazy wedding stuff. From: jon <jonberts@swbell.net> Date: Wed, 12 May 1999 07:29:04 -0500   Where is this church? And is it's name possibly "First Broadway ShowTunes Church"? So far Yanny (SP?....I hope I spelled it wrong too....no respect here for that junk) is the worst I've had to do.......OOPs...almost forgot about the time I was playing last minute for a wedding at an RC church in my neighborhood. During the PROCESSIONAL, a little boy came up into the organ loft with a copy of sheet music. He asked me if I'd play this for his sister (the bride) during communion. I asked (between stop changes and page turns) if Father had approved it. He said yes. I told him to lay it on the console. At the appropriate time during communion, I put the copy of music on the rack. There was no title on the cover.......opened it.........and HORRORS!!!!!! it was "Hawaiian Wedding Son", and to top it off there was a picture of Don Ho. I used it anyway (if anyone needs registration notes, I'll tell you). Father never said a word, the bride was teary eyed and I was not stricken by a bolt from the sky.   Jon Bertschinger

Fortunately, when got a copy of the music there was a verse which said something about "we can't wait to get to the island where there are no ten commandments", so the priest deep-six'd it for me!! (whew)   I was asked once to play a selection from a CD at a funeral for the procession out. The guy said "all you have to do us push the button and it's ready to go." The funeral ended and I pushed the button, but the song that came up was something about a "wicked tramp". I cut it off, tried again.... same result.

Actually, the wedding procession from (SoM -- whew! that was close!!) is a rather good procession, the procession being the introduction to the song (HDYSAPLM?). Unfortunately, the publishers, in their infinite wisdumb, feel that the introduction is a waste of ink and that everyone is interested in the werds! I've transcribed this off the recording and keep it tucked away in the back of my head. It only takes a few practice rounds to haul it out of the archives (it's not like there's a whole bunch o' stuff stored in there anyway!!! hehehe).

Plain and simple. If you play them, >they do sound the same. Try it and see. Traditional theory isn't just interested in how any particular pile of notes sounds, it also looks at how the internal voice-leading functions. Compare the following two chords...   F A C Eb F A C D#   ....one's a dominant 7th, the other is a German 6th. They sound the same (in a "vertical" sense) but they function differently (in a "horizontal" sense). How about these two?...   C E Ab G# E B#   They may sound the same, but resolve very differently. (As an aside, these two would both be considered at least theoretically consonant in Renaissance polyphony!...anyone care to take a stab at why that would be?)   OK, I know what you're thinking now, Rob's fooling around with enharmonics, but Bm7 and D6 have the same spelling! More important than the spelling of each note is its function. So even though the notes in Bm7 and D6 are spelled the same, the function of the notes is different. In the former, the A functions as a dissonance (the 7th) whereas in the latter it's being interpreted as a consonance (the 5th). All that being said, pop music (as well as just about anything that issues forth from the good folks at GIA and OCP) usually throws any semblance of horizontal voice-leading to the wind, and nobody really cares if the chord symbols don't reflect the inner workings of the music (or lack thereof).   No, you're not the only one who knows what a D6 chord is.   Robert Horton - DMA Student, University of Kansas 1603 West 15th St. #207A, Lawrence, KS 66044 http://falcon.cc.ukans.edu/~gemshorn/   "Calculus and alcohol don't mix...never drink and derive."

Very interesting...I would have opted for a suspended mechanical action, well-built mechanical swell shades, and perhaps and electro-mechanical stop action.

From: KurtvonS@aol.com Date: Wed, 12 May 1999 10:17:09 EDT   I've had a few interesting requests over the years, but I don't think I could top the wedding request for a ditty called, to the best of my recollection "It Don't Get Any Better Than This". Seems to be a sad comment on the future married life! Then there was the posh funeral at a prestigious Catholic parish; a string quartet, a rented 9' Steinway...and the recessional, played alla lugubrioso; "The Notre Dame Victory March"....now there was one for the Gipper!   KvS

Possibly not, but I think that when all this stuff with planned obscolescence is added to pipe organs (and to include faux-stops, as well) that organ builders are shooting themselves in the foot. When this stuff needs to be replaced, often replacement cost is about the same as a new substitute instrument.     >=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0 =A0 =A0 When I wrote this, I was thinking of a > particular client of mine. They are "land > locked" and do not have anywhere to go. The > congregation, when they get going, about > drowns out the organ. I would think this could be solved with several ranks of large scale designed for this purpose; it's hardly necessary to add the complete build-up of sound for this single use.=A0=A0   >But again, this particular client that I was > thinking of has "closets" for organ chambers. >The 30 ranks that they have now are > "shoehorned" in. Probably the best thing the architect did for this church was to provide "closets" for the organ. Those rooms should be used AS closets, rather than organ space. The parish could probably manage with less organ if it were not stuffed into chambers, but placed in a suitable case in close proximity to the congregation. If the problem is proximity of choir to congregation as well, I would rather have a small instrument in the choir and a larger instrument in the nave, rather than a bigger beast stuck in chambers and/or hanging on the walls, all difficult to service and tune, not to mention ugly!   Organists, and I suppose, builders really need to seriously consider the fallacy of the biggest is bestest, and that volume only comes from plentiful ranks. Although, not an especially beautiful sound, I've heard 10 rank organs that could drive people out of St. John the Divine NYC, and 6 rank organs that very ably accompanied 450 good singers. It's all in the voicing.   bruce cornely cremona84000@webtv.net   When a dog wants to hang out the "Do Not Disturb" sign, as all of us do now and then, he is regarded as a traitor to his species. -- Ramona C.

The first time I talk with a bride-to-be, I assure her that it is my goal to make her wedding as worry-free as possible. The only music that she needs to worry about is her two processions and whatever solos she wants. The usual speech includes the fact that I will begin playing joyous music whenever people begin entering the church -- this varies from ten to forty-five minutes. If she finds that she is going to be late starting.... no problem -- I have, roughly, three weeks worth of music that I can play ;-). The procession will always work out right, because I can see when she arrives at the chancel, as well as when she is standing in the West Door reading to enter. Most brides are over-joyed that they don't have to waste their time explaining what they don't understand to someone who should know what they're doing. They've already been ten-rounds with the caterer, florist, photographer, and videographer who force them to make each and every decision. I also very gently remind them that they are not going to hear ANYTHING on their wedding day, except "I do" . Believe it or not, taking the responsibility for the music is a terrific load off the bride's mind and they are always grateful. The only complaints I've had were from brides who took charge and planned everything, only to have it not work out like they wanted or realized that the solo really was not appropriate (too late, of course). I have always received compliments from brides and brooms after the wedding, and family as well. They really do appreciate a professional who will remove the responsibility and planning headaches from them.   bruce cornely cremona84000@webtv.net   When a dog wants to hang out the "Do Not Disturb" sign, as all of us do now and then, he is regarded as a traitor to his species. -- Ramona C.

From: "Russell Greene" <russg@cyberspc.mb.ca> Date: Wed, 12 May 1999 10:00:44 -0500   Just about a week ago, I was asked to play "Nola" as the recessional at a funeral. The request came, just as I was starting to play the prelude, from our frazzled church secretary who thrust a grimy, ripped copy onto the organbench beside me. Thank goodness we had just installed our Kurzweil keyboard. I was able to struggle through "Nola" on "Honky-Tonk Piano" at an appropriately stately pace.   Russ

IMHO, although this is a kind gesture, I consider it a kick in the teeth to the organist who is actually playing the wedding and should plan the music, with or without the bride, but certainly not from a third party. When I am asked to play for a wedding of a relative or friend, I consider the incumbent organist first. If that person is capable, my response is for them to use the church organist and let me simply be a guest. If the incument is not too good, I ask that person if they mind and assure them that they will receive their usual fee anyway. If the organ is not a pipe organ, I recommend they use the church organist or move to another church which has a pipe organ and a good organist. I think playing for weddings/funerals in another church is a fun way to meet and colleaguify with another organist, and I enjoy having guest organists in my parish as well, BUT is should not be at the expense of the staff organist, whether it's me or someone else, REGARDLESS of their ability.   bruce cornely cremona84000@webtv.net   When a dog wants to hang out the "Do Not Disturb" sign, as all of us do now and then, he is regarded as a traitor to his species. -- Ramona C.

I have played the NDVM at a couple of funerals, and when it is played very slowly and stately, it is quite moving. We recently had a funeral for a military man, and the honor guard stood outside the church, visible through the clear class windows, throughout the mass, and then at the conclusion the trumpet player played the "Day is Done". It was so hauntingly sad, so lone and distant, I wondered if I was going to make it through the procession out and the postlude. When the trumper finished they fired a 21-gun salute (outside, of course) which echoed dramatically around the nave (2.5 sec reverberation). This is only surpassed in emotion by the "missing-plane" fly over, which absolutely un-does me!   bruce cornely cremona84000@webtv.net   When a dog wants to hang out the "Do Not Disturb" sign, as all of us do now and then, he is regarded as a traitor to his species. -- Ramona C.
