Bud is a wonderful service player! How do I know? Well . . . my friend, Susan Rupert, was one of his professional sopranoes a thousand years ago in Cincinnati and I attended (actually had to be there since I was waiting for Susan to finish singing) so I got to hear Bud play a few services and postludes and hymns, etc. I remember one time I was working on "In Der ist Freude" and Bud played it for a postlude, I think, on Christmas Eve. It was a great lesson in interpretation!   So . . . when Bud tells you he can . . . trust me, he can!   Yours,   Darryl by the Sea (at CCM Roberta Gary was my advisor and Wayne Fisher was my teacher -- interesting combination for sure)

(back) Subject: Bach suggestions From: "Mark Huth" <mhuth@rodgers.rain.com> Date: Fri, 21 May 1999 09:33:00 PST       While we're talking about great organ literature, I have a question for the players on the list (you know who you are!). I'm looking at repertoire I'd like to learn in the next few months and would like some idea about what pieces you'd recommend.   I'm just finishing up the Bach Passacaglia and Fugue, and learned the "Great" G minor P & F and the P & F in C major (BWV 547 with the Prelude in 9/8) right before that.   I also play the "Gigue" and "Little" Fugues and the "Cathedral" P & F.   So, now I'm wondering, out of all those wonderful remaining Preludes and Fugues of JS Bach, which should I learn next? I'm wondering about the A Minor or the B Minor and have also considered learning the Eb ("St. Anne") P & F from the Clav. III.   Any suggestions? For those of you who have played these pieces, which is the one you go back to over and over again because it's so pleasing to play? Is there another one you'd recommend?   Also, I've played the Eb Trio Sonata for years and love it. Which of the remaining 5 Trio Sonatas is your favorite, when I'm ready to start another?   I know many of the pieces mentioned above by recording and know they all have great musical potential. I'm more interested in what the players on the list feel are the most enjoyable Preludes and Fugues/Trio Sonatas for the musician.   Looking forward to your recommendations . . .   Mark       Mark Huth Rodgers Instruments, LLC mhuth@rodgers.rain.com http://www.rodgersinstruments.com   ==========================   Do Roman paramedics refer to IV's as *4's*?

You already have the Passacaglia and Fugue, which is the first part of my one-two punch of favorite organ pieces ever. The other half is the D minor (dorian), which is an awesome piece, pedal trill and all. My organ teacher *loves* the D minor dorian, both listening to it and playing it, so give it a try. It's a great piece.   -Adam

(back) Subject: Re: Bach suggestions From: Bud/burgie <budchris@earthlink.net> Date: Fri, 21 May 1999 09:53:21 -0700   I like some of the offbeat ones: the A Major has a wonderful, lyrical fugue. I also play the Toccata AND FUGUE in F Major ... the fugue doesn't yield up its beauties immediately, and takes VERY careful articulation, but it's well worth it. The D Major IS lots of fun, and not as hard as it looks. I THINK I use Dupre's pedalling for the solo on the last page of the fugue ... I learned it so long ago, I've forgotten where I got the pedalling. The Toccata, Adagio and Fugue in C Major is fun too. You might also look at some of the fugues from "Art of the Fugue" ... the triple fugue before the duets is AWESOME. I play from the Walcha edition, but I think there are some better ones now.   Cheers,   Bud   Adam and Christine Levin wrote:   > On Fri, 21 May 1999, Mark Huth wrote: > > I'm just finishing up the Bach Passacaglia and Fugue, and learned the > > "Great" G minor P & F and the P & F in C major (BWV 547 with the Prelude > > in 9/8) right before that. > > I also play the "Gigue" and "Little" Fugues and the "Cathedral" P & F. > > So, now I'm wondering, out of all those wonderful remaining Preludes and > > Fugues of JS Bach, which should I learn next?

(back) Subject: Bach's Prelude and Fugue in b minor From: Bud/burgie <budchris@earthlink.net> Date: Fri, 21 May 1999 11:37:33 -0700   One of my favorite pieces ... a number of years ago (QUITE a number of years ago, actually), some people went through a phase of double-dotting and even (I think) applying some notes inegales to the Prelude. I tried it, but went back to the old way, mostly because the double-dotted pedal notes just wouldn't speak fast enough with the 16' Posaune drawn.   Any opinions? Comments?   Cheers,   Bud    
(back) Subject: Re: Bach's Prelude and Fugue in b minor From: "Jason McGuire" <jason@johannus-norcal.com> Date: Fri, 21 May 1999 12:07:51 -0700   I have only done it, I guess, the "old way" and there were no double-dotted pedal notes. True enough, a 16' Posaune or Fagotto would not be able to speak properly. I think that this "old way," or as written, is the correct one, at least that's my opinion anyway.   I first studied the piece with an evening instructor at the New England Conservatory of Music. He told me that the dissonance chords in the Prelude represented Jesus' pain and turmoil on the cross and the subsequent runs (sans pedal, usually played on fewer stops) represented release from the pain. That is the only time I have heard that analogy ... has anyone else ever heard it described that way?   Jason ---------- >From: Bud/burgie <budchris@earthlink.net> >To: organchat <organchat@onelist.com>, pipechat <pipechat@pipechat.org> >Subject: Bach's Prelude and Fugue in b minor >Date: Fri, May 21, 1999, 11:37 AM >   > One of my favorite pieces ... a number of years ago (QUITE a number of > years ago, actually), some people went through a phase of double-dotting > and even (I think) applying some notes inegales to the Prelude.
