Jenista" <hiplain@flash.net> Date: Tue, 05 Dec 2000 08:11:17 -0600   Hi, for those interested in the first music CD from Broadway Baptist, Ft. Worth, Texas, here is an update:   After our annual Messiah concert at Broadway this last Sunday, I learned of the status of our first Broadway CD. It is "Make Your Prayer And Music One", featuring the Broadway Chancel Choir, brass, and Dr. Al Travis at the mighty Casavant organ [V/191 ranks]. An initial run of 500 copies has been produced. The CD will shortly go on sale at Resmiranda Records' website, per Jerry Barnes message:   '"Make Your Prayer And Music One" will definitely 'appear on the Resmiranda Records http://resmiranda.com 'web site. However, we are in process of a complete 're-design of the site and it may be several days before 'our category of "RESMIRANDA RECORDS GREAT 'CHURCH CHOIR SERIES" is complete. > Subscribe/Unsubscribe: mailto:requests@pipechat.org

(back) Subject: Gillian Weir at The Mother Church: new CD From: "William T. Van Pelt" <organsoc3@organsociety.org> Date: Tue, 5 Dec 2000 12:40:30 -0500   The 1949 Aeolian-Skinner of 235 ranks at The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, is recorded for the first time on an internationally distributed CD. Gillian Weir plays in tribute to her late husband, organbuilder Lawrence Phelps, who was intimately involved in the original construction and voicing of this organ. G. Donald Harrison, who provided "assistance and advice" according to a fascinating account published in The Tracker 44:1 and also in material in the CD booklet, put his name on a "signature" plate on this instrument.   As his last major organ project, Phelps worked from 1995 until shortly before his death on February 22, 1999, in restoring and rebuilding the organ, bringing it to an unprecedented state of finish.   The repertoire is: Jongen: Sonata Eroica Willan: Introduction, Passacaglia and Fugue Hindemith: Sonata I Reubke: Sonata on the 94th Psalm   These are now in stock for immediate delivery at http:/www.ohscatalog.org   Bill

(back) Subject: Re: I have had it! From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@access.aic-fl.com> Date: Mon, 4 Dec 2000 19:31:58 -0600   I have experienced this phenomenon every Advent - the people have = forgotten the Kyrie and the settings of Sanctus and Agnus Dei we have used every = year during Advent, Christmas and Lent for the last 10 years - "We don't know these" and "I've never heard that hymn" abound. I gently (it's so hard = for me to be gentle, so the use of the word may itself be an exaggeration on = my part) remind them that it's exactly the same music we've done for that period of time, and that it's been a long Pentecost/ordinary time.   What helped this past Sunday was that we had Advent Lessons and Carols on Friday, December 1 (just before Advent 1), with a packed church, a = visiting choir of AGO members, and special music. They got a dress rehearsal on = some of the hymns of the season, so maybe that warmed them up for singing the hymns on Sundays. These are hymns that get sung once per year, just like Epiphany, Lent, Easter and Ascension hymns that don't make it into the congregation's "favorites" repertoire.   Yes, the pastor needs shooting with rat shot, but life will go on. If he doesn't apologize, please write me for a list of terrible tortures, and = hang in there.   Glenda Sutton "Never say, 'It can't get any worse.' I tried that once."

It CAN be done with positive encouragement, resulting in the folks giving it a good go. Ed    
(back) Subject: Interesting Christmas gift idea From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@access.aic-fl.com> Date: Tue, 5 Dec 2000 19:09:53 -0600   As usual, I am behind and perusing catalogs to get ideas for Christmas = gifts before hitting the stores. The JCPenney Christmas catalog has a clock - a musician organ wall clock - "organ and organist come forward on the hour = to play one of six different melodies". I've never seen such, and for the price of $199.99 plus shipping it can be yours. (See page 563.)   Just throwing that one out - you can throw it back.   Glenda Sutton        
(back) Subject: Re: Jobs From: <p.wilson2@juno.com> Date: Tue, 5 Dec 2000 16:34:23 -0800   OK, so maybe they didn't want to pay for a second month! You can call San Diego Parks & Rec at 619/235-1100. If anyone is interested, I would make haste. I heard they've had 40+ applicants.   Shalom, Preston p.wilson2@juno.com     On Tue, 5 Dec 2000 09:28:39 -0800 "Randy Terry" <randyterry@laumc.org> writes: > It is not located in the "far west" section. > From: "Randy Terry" <randyterry@laumc.org> To: "'PipeChat'" <pipechat@pipechat.org> Date: Tue, 5 Dec 2000 09:52:11 -0800 Maybe they don't want to pay for another month!   From: quilisma@socal.rr.com To: PipeChat <pipechat@pipechat.org> Date: Tue, 05 Dec 2000 09:41:06 -0800 It's been removed since YESTERDAY (12-5-00) because I SAW it yesterday (grin).   Cheers,   Bud

And you don't have to get abused in the stores! You can order it on the internet. ....And a console moving while the organist plays "When you Wish Upon a Star" will be like 'intermission time' every hour!   I'll take two!   Stan :-)     http://www1.jcpenney.com/jcp/products.asp?CatID=3D1113&GrpTyp=3DPRD&ItemID= =3D011e16a&ItemTyp=3DG&cattyp=3D&Search=3Dclock&mnID=3D2&SearchIn=3D0&NumMa= tches=3D26&PersistenceId=3DINETMER102+852786+%2D1619976687&RecordId=3DM+1+0= +Aqc0000b00+852745++Aqc0000b00&t8PersistenceId=3DINETMER103+980786+%2D79586= 8093&t8RecordId=3DM+1+0+Aqc0000b00+980183++Aqc0000b00&CSeq=3D15&t8PageNum= =3D1&mscssid=3D2AV68BPNUJ57E9NF2U60LKBQA7WNK1LN5e82KcKCZaG0e82KcKCZaGT200B3= CC617C883864C7957CF5F6B55DA0A11KMM
