Is littered with more mistakes and misprints than you can shake a stick at:   2. Falls apart the second time you open it up to get it to STAY on the = music stand:   3. comes from the same publisher as "Hymn Old & New"   Then go right ahead!   Richard Scott-Copeland Staff Organist Portsmouth Cathedral Parish organist City Centre Catholic Parish, Southampton.

He lives in Boston and I don't believe he has been organist in San Francisco, although I can check. I have known him for a number of years and he has been in the Boston area during that time.

(back) Subject: unison anthems (X-posted) From: bud <budchris@earthlink.net> Date: Sat, 18 Sep 1999 08:31:58 -0700   My season is getting off to a slow start ... I'm without my only tenor, either at rehearsal or service, for the next three weeks. So I'm digging around for good unison anthems. We have a fair number of SAB anthems, but most are arrangements with the typical problem of the men's part being too high for basses and too low for tenors in spots.   Does anyone know of or have some interesting unison pieces? We've pretty much exhausted the Morning Star Choir Books.   There was a unison anthem based on Wesley's Holsworthy Church Bells that was fun (though it had to be transposed down ... it was for trebles originally) but I've lost it.   Any help would be appreciated ... maybe I can also use them for the children's choir when THAT gets off the ground.   Cheers,   Bud

Bruce Quigley, Senior Pastor Neil Brown, Minister of Music/Organist   Prelude: Entry of the Queen of Sheba (from Solomon) --Handel   Hymn: God of Grace & God of Glory (CWM RHONDDA)   8:30 Prayer Response: The Lord's Prayer -- Rimsky-Korsakov (Sanctuary Choir)   Offertory Anthem: 8:30 "I Will Glorify Your Name" --Cindy Berry 11:00 "I Will Greatly Rejoice" --Alan Pote (Singspirations)   Hymn: In Christ There Is No East or West (set to a spiritual type tune--can't recall name now)   Recessional Hymn: Forth in the Name, O Lord (DUKE STREET)   Postlude: Improvisation --N. Brown (still to be determined)   The Handel piece works so beautifully on organ and I always enjoy resurrecting the piece. This time I'm doing it entirely on the Swell, to lighten it up. The little episodes will be done on the great using the oboe 8, the nazard 2 2/3, and the koppelflute 4.   For first hymn, I have planned to do a pedal solo for the introduction and of course a de rigeur return to the pedal solo for the interlude between 3rd and 4th stanzas. CWM RHONDDA is one of my favorite tunes.   Postlude will be practiced at the 8:30 service and performed at the 11:00 and I'll do whatever the Spirit moves me to do, but probably will be on Duke Street.   It will be nice to have the teen choir, Singspirations, back in the chancel. We lost a lot of seniors this past season, but the group we have, though small, sounds very nice.   Blessings on you all. --Neil Brown

(back) Subject: A Prayer for the Stressed Organist :-) From: DRAWKNOB@aol.com Date: Sat, 18 Sep 1999 22:19:19 EDT   A Prayer for the Stressed Organist   Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I cannot accept, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those parishoners I had to kill today because they ticked me off.   And also, help me to be careful of the toes I step on today as they may be connected to the rector's ass (donkey) that I may = have to kiss tomorrow.   Help me to always give 100% at work.... 90% on Sunday 10% on Wednesday   And help me to remember... When I'm having a really bad day, and it seems that choir members are ticking me off, that it takes 42 muscles to frown and only 4 to extend my middle finger and tell them to sit on my organ = (bench)!   Amen
