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     -----Original Message----- From: ScottFop@aol.com <ScottFop@aol.com> To: pipechat@pipechat.org <pipechat@pipechat.org> Date: Sunday, September 19, 1999 1:32 PM Subject: Re: A Prayer for the Stressed Organist :-)     >Can someone please repost this "prayer for a stressed organist?" > >Thanks!

(back) Subject: Fiat Lux (Let There Be Light) From: "Carlo Pietroniro" <concert_organist@hotmail.com> Date: Sun, 19 Sep 1999 23:30:50 EDT   Greetings,   today I tried something strange. For those of you who = know the piece, Fiat Lux by Theodore Dubois calls for the organist to begin on ppp and gradually build until reaching fff, or all the resources of the organ. It's an amazing gradual crescendo. But.....today I tried it backwards, starting on fff and gradually bringing the organ down until ending on ppp............very nice if I may say so. The next time you have = a few minutes to waste, and provided you know the piece, try it. It sounded pretty cool.......   Carlo   ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com  
(back) Subject: Re: unison anthems From: Lee T Lovallo <llovallo@juno.com> Date: Sun, 19 Sep 1999 21:41:34 -0700   I have found useful unison material for both our parish choir and for our choristers in Twelve Easy Anthems, ed. by Greening (RSCM). The Oxford Easy Anthem Book also has a number of good pieces, including Howells' My Eyes for Beauty Pine, though the print in this edition is rather small. Another minor unison classic (IMHO) is Chas. Proctor's Anthem of Dedication (Oecumuse, sp?). Your church hymnal probably has many tunes that the congregation would enjoy hearing from the choir. One of our favorites is Hymn 597, Jerusalem by Parry, though provided with a new text. We also sing some plainsong settings of the Kyrie and Agnus Dei from our hymnal. There is also a unison version of Rutter's A Gaelic Blessing, which is very popular with our choir. GIA's catalog contains quite a few pieces (be sure to check out their RSCM titles), and merchants like Lois Fyfe Music (in Nashville, (800) 851-9023) have been reliable sources of information for me. My only caution is to beware of some children's choir pieces which may demand a higher tessitura than modest mixed choirs may feel comfortable with. I hope this helps.   --Lee T.
