Any great places to = browse for organ music? Local resources are scanty, I've gone from playing = seldom to playing every Sunday so I could use some new music.   Some stores are great if you know exactly what you want, they open a file drawer in the back and come out with it. I'm more interested in a place where you can browse if you DON'T know what you want.   Thanks,   Chuck Peery Cincinnati

From: "Pat Maimone" <patmai@juno.com> Date: Sun, 21 Nov 1999 07:44:19 -0500   Dear Chuck and Pipechatters,   >Any great places [in NYC] to browse for organ music? As far as I know, the only place is The Joseph Patelson Music House 160 West 56th Street (opposite the stage door of Carnegie Hall. which is located on 57th Street at the intersection of 7th Ave) New York, NY   Other suggestions:   (At home.. Do you belong to your local AGO chapter? Ask your Dean or SubDean. Ask at the CCM (Cincinnati Conservatory of Music ;-)   ** Plan to attend the National AGO Convention in Seattle in 2000 and bring your checkbook and/or credit card!** List member Brenda Durden of http://www.franticorganist.com   The FranticOrganist has a fine selection of organ music. In her colorful brochures, she often gives enough details about a work to encourage you to order it, sight unseen.   Have you ever been to an Augsburg Fortress Church Music Workshop? I often buy organ music from the summer workshop held in a Philadelphia suburb. A-F also visits many other parts of the country, such as Pasadena, CA, in January on the 8th. Martin Jean will lead the one in Philly in January.. Please visit their website   http://www.augsburgfortress.org   for full details.   Happy Christ the King Sunday!   Pat Maimone Post Chapel (III/57. Aeolian-Skinner, Moeller console, Gress-Miles) West Point, NY (50 miles north of Manhattan... I enjoyed tremendously the Poulenc Plus concert at St. Ignatius Loyola, NYC, Friday night. Nancianne Parrella played Poulenc's Organ Concerto magnificently. The choral music wasn't bad, either ;-)   ___________________________________________________________________ Get the Internet just the way you want it.

Any great places to browse > for organ music?   I will be very interested to see if there are any responses on this, Charles. The places I used to go to are all closed now.   I do make an annual trek to Princeton (50 min. on the train from NYC) = where I visit a friend and the famous "U-Store" that serves Princeton and the Westminster school. Organ music, choral music, sacred music of all kinds, organ CDs, etc. available for browsing. A keyboard and 'phones to try = things out. Not a tremendous amount of stuff, mind you, but much more than is available locally.   Good luck   S.D.G.

It's in the student center building, and is =   worth a visit.   Cheers,   Malcolm Wechsler www.mander-organs.com

(back) Subject: Re: Church Comeback From: "VEAGUE" <dutchorgan@svs.net> Date: Sun, 21 Nov 1999 09:42:03 -0500   The music, sermons, and neighborhood all play a factor:   1. Good instrument, good organist? 2. Lonnnng sermons (nap-time) ? 3. Anyone to ride "shot-gun" in and out of a neighborhood?   If a congregation is faithful, they will come -come hell or high water. If trying to attract new followers, the above examples may apply.   Rick

Very theatrical -six string celestes, Unda Maris, Vox (in a box), and a = trumpety Oboe, give that instrument a warm sound -not to mention a separate = Diapason in each dividion. OH... did I mention 3 tremolos? Separate voicing makes good solo-work, and the ensemble makes for good congregational singing. Really, the only thing missing was the silver screen !   Rick

The piece was one of those "crash and burn" kind and I thought I saw something run across the stage. I found out AFTER the performance that a RAT had run out from under the console. HMMMM, I wonder if it was the piece or the performance.   Tom Ed Moore University of North Alabama   --- Rebekah Ingram <rringram@syr.edu> wrote: > The bug topic reminded me of a story told to me by a > close friend of mine.

This year, however, I decided on the Virgil Fox version, using the wonderful Tuba on the new Makin organ at the church. Sigfrid will have to wait until next year!   Happy Thanksgiving to all!   Jason McGuire
