The best-known one, "To a wild rose" is kind of a joke, and I gather that McDowell's wife tried to persuade him not to publish it. (Or was it that he didn't want to publish it and his wife wanted him to? I forget which.) The one McDowell piece IMHO that comes off extremely well on the organ is "A.D. 1620". I have a tape of Tom Murray playing it on the Longwood Gardens Aeolian and it is just gorgeous.   John Speller

(back) Subject: re: chamber Music From: jon <jonberts@swbell.net> Date: Sun, 16 May 1999 07:03:04 -0500   I would think that as far as the "continuo" parts for chamber music, it would not matter if you used harpsichord, organ, or even forte-piano. Many printed works are so highly edited, that using good judgement and musical taste is more "authentic" than following notation in a score as to instrument of choice.   Jon Bertschinger

And they sang up a STORM. Choir did "O Magnify the Lord" by Carrie Adams (turn of the century) ... when we started the rehearsal, the bass soloist sang the TITLE instead of the first line of his solo (he's sorta dyslexic), but he got it together in Mass.   Organ music was forgettable ... I played "tea piano" for two hours yesterday afternoon, so I was TIRED. But the ladies were THRILLED, and THAT translates into support for the PIPE ORGAN (grin).   Beautiful lines in today's Communion Psalm (68, old numbering):   "Though ye have lain among the sheep-folds, yet shall ye be as the wings of a dove that is covered with silver wings, and her feathers like gold ... The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of angels."   Picked the same Psalm for next week (DUH!), but different verses, so it's OK.   The choir has been telling me the Archbishop's something of a character .... We'll See ... ordinations week-after-next.   Cheers,   Bud

(back) Subject: Hendersonville, NC Recital From: Barry H Bodie <bbodie@InfoAve.Net> Date: Sun, 16 May 1999 13:27:56 -0400   Jefferson McConnaughey, assistant organist and choirmaster at All Saints Episcopal Church in Atlanta, GA., gave an interesting recital on the new Harrison and Harrison organ at St. James Church yesterday afternoon, He played a mixed program which consisted mainly of Baroque, Romantic and Contemporary British organ literature with one major work by J.S. Bach, Couperin and Widor. The house was packed. The program was as follows:   John Cook "Fanfare"   J.S. Bach "Prelude and Fugue in E-flat Major" ("St. Anne")   G.F. Handel "Organ Concerto #13" Adagio Allegro "The Cuckoo and the Nightingale"   F. Couperin Dialogue   R.Vaughan Williams "Prelude on Rhosymedre"   C.H.H.Parry "Prelude on Melcombe"   H. Murrill "Postlude on a Ground"   H. Howells "Master Tallis's Testament"   C.M. Widor "Toccata from Symphony #5"   After a false start at the beginning of the Cook, the remainder of the recital was played with exceptional skill and a thorough understanding of this English instrument. The high pressure trumpet was used sparingly and appropriately. The artist's rendition of "Rhosymedre" was as near perfect as could be with striking use of the solo reeds, Clarinet and Oboe. "Master Tallis's Testament" was played with intensity. Never a real fan of Howells' music, I enjoyed hearing this dreaded piece. The Widor was played with restraint. I don't believe I could have contained myself and would probably have used the "party horn" for the last few measures.   There is another recital this afternoon, which I am planning to attend. Bev Ward, the church's organist, will play a program consisting of some Buxtehude, Handel, Oley, some of his own compositions, Sowerby and Reger's "Introduction and Fugue in D-minor." Should be a real treat! I'd strongly recommend you attend.   Additional recitalists scheduled for next year include Marilyn Keiser, Martin Jean and Paul Manz.       Barry H.

Handel Suite from the Music for the Royal Fireworks Overture The Rejoicing The peace Bourree Minuet Finale   J.C. Oley Two Chorale Preludes The day is past, My Jesu Bide by Me How Brightly Shines the Morning Star   B.A. Ward Easter Fanfare (1999)   B.A. Ward Prelude on Down Ampney   L. Sowerby Prelude on Malabar   M. Reger Introduction and Passacaglia in D-minor   Yesterday's recital was a demonstration of the organ for those unfamiliar with it. Today's recital was an "Oranists's" recital. The instrument was admirably demonstrated by knowlegable playing and sensitive registration. The Oley pieces were unfamiliar to me, but delightful miniatures in late Baroque-Early Classical style. The Sowerby was played with the insight of one of Leo Sowerby's last pupils. The crowning glory of the recital was the work by Max Reger. It was played with great technical accuracy. Not one wrong note! An amazing feat for any work by Reger. The tonal palate of the piece encompassed every aspect of the organ.   I believe this organ will become a pilgrimage instrment in Western North Carolina. A coupling of a fine instrument playe by a well-trained and sensitive organist in a near-perfect acoustic has, IMHO, created what will become a legend.   Barry H.

I know that Back was an advocate of wel-temperament as opposed to meantone, but I have no way of knowing whether he would have liked the results of equal temperament, had he ever actually heard it (I don't think it actually arrived until he'd left!). I do know, however, that music sounds much better to me when portions are perfectly in tune and can be enhanced by others that are not: contrast of tension and perfect resolution.

(back) Subject: the training of church organists (was "swell shoes") From: Bud/burgie <budchris@earthlink.net> Date: Sun, 16 May 1999 17:36:38 -0700   I still think the old "articled pupil" system in England is probably the best, at least for Anglicans ... young organists sing in a cathedral or collegiate choir, play for some of the services under the watchful eye of the Master of the Choristers, and grow up with the repertoire and the style in their bones. Reilly Lewis grew up around the National Cathedral; now he's director of the Cathedral Choral Society.   My first teacher and my Rector in high school were both pupils of T. Tertius Noble; I never got to HEAR Noble in person (I think he was dead by then), but his style of service-playing was VERY much alive in the persons of Dr. Ramona Beard and the Very Rev. Cyril Sturrup.   I will NEVER forget one Sunday when I passed out from the heat at the 9:30 Mass at St. Paul's in Winter Haven, FL (this was before air-conditioning) ... it happened that the curate was saying the Mass and Father Sturrup had already preached. I came to on the sacristy floor (right by the quire door leading to the console) ... Father Sturrup was improvising a very English romantic prelude and fugue on the recessional hymn. Most of what I know about playing Evensong in the grand English manner, improvising chant accompaniments, etc. I learned from him.   I didn't learn SQUAT about church music at Oberlin. Fenner Douglass played in a low Episcopal church on the west side of Cleveland, but nobody ever went to hear him; nor did we have the slightest idea what he DID. In later years I heard that he mostly played early French and German organ music and let the choir sing whatever they wanted, however they wanted. The SERVICE-PLAYERS I heard were Walter Blodgett at St. Paul's Cleveland Heights and Lou Hill at St. James on East 55th Street, and then Gerre Hancock when he was at Christ Church (now Cathedral) in Cincinnati when I moved there.   It takes a LIFETIME to learn all this stuff ... I've been doing it for almost 50 years now, and I'm STILL learning. And how to pump two swell pedals is only the BEGINNING (grin).   Cheers,   Bud

And please don't tell me to have two or three instruments ... we'll be doing good to get ONE, thank you very much (grin). Duke University Chapel we're NOT.   Yes, yes, I know ... before the digital advocates jump in ... digital organs CAN offer more than one tuning and/or voicing. But how do you deal with the situation with a PIPE organ? I know the Fisk at Stanford has some kind of gear-shift so it can play in more than one temperament (or SOMETHING like that), but wasn't that HORRENDOUSLY expensive?   And how do you deal with playing with modern orchestral instruments? I would LOVE to have an organ pitched at the older A=435, but I don't DARE if I ever want to use instruments with the organ.   Cheers,   Bud

PipeChat has twice weekly IRC (Internet Relay Chat) sessions on Monday and Friday night STARTING at about 9 PM EASTERN time.   IRC is a "real-time" chat with others who are also on-line at that time. We have had up to somewhere between 15 and 20 people on at a time and the discussions can get quite lively. Normally, the topics range around organs and organ music although at times other topics do poke up. It is a great way of sharing information and getting some immediate answers to questions. Organ builders, Composers, Organists and just plain people interested in the organ but are not professional musicians all join in, I know I have learned much from the discussions along with sharing information I have with others.   Why don't you give it a try? For those that have or wish to install IRC Client software there are instructions on the PipeChat web site at http://www.pipechat.org/irc.html of where to get the software and how to configure it. The IRC sessions are also reachable via a web page at: http://irc.pipechat.org:8080 I do need to warn you that access via the web page interface is a bit slower than using a regular IRC client on your machine.   WE hope to see some of you there.   David **************************************** David Scribner Co-Owner / Technical Administrator PipeChat   850-478-9635 mailto:david@blackiris.com

I try to impress on the students that the preparation is the most valuable thing about these exams. Many of us at one time or another have learned a lot of the theoretical stuff, but to review it is such a good experience.   The preparation is more important than whether you pass or not and you will find it sharpening your skills and giving new life to your playing. I would start in the Fall to prepare for the June exams and arrange to work with somebody every week. Produce something - playing or written each week. There are many shortcuts that a good teacher can show you and a study of the past exams are very important.   Go for it, Mark, and all success to you.   JOHN
