It is a waste of time and it just = annoys the pig.   Noel Jones Moderator, rodgersorgan@eGroups.com A discussion group for Rodgers Organ Users, specializing in MIDI issues, among others, but RAP is not one of them.

(back) Subject: Re: Florence Foster Jenkins From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Thu, 7 Dec 2000 17:26:19 EST   Hi Stephen:   I gotta warn you Houston reaches 117 degrees on summer afternoons, so keep plenty of A/C going for about six months. Been there, and done that, for a couple of weeks. It was enough. It's humid too. At the very least you won't freeze to death, but you might just roast in the summer, and there's no relief. California is the place to come and lots of jobs going begging. It may get to 100 occasionally here but always drops to 70 or below at night. 55-60 degree days in winter, and 40-45 degree nights. You want a coastal job and there are plenty of them. Fred Swann is leaving First Congregational in LA in June, It's a heavy job! But someone's got to do it! The Choir Director is leaving too along with Fred. The Spreckles Job is open, in San Diego, and that's a real plum! Even more temperate than LA. There are some duds thrown in Like the RAP church on the list.   Regards,   Ron Severin

Because the chalicebearer on Sundays is really stingy with = the cup (at least to me, but I take communion just before the congregation and after the servers), I have many times thought that having a fifth of gin nearby would be helpful and therapeutic. And if I'm not mistaken, this subject came up back then after a discussion of using gin to clean = contacts (and I don't mean the ones in my eyes).   Regards and happy Advent,   Glenda Sutton who always writes on-topic to the lists, and is an honest lawyer, and has some Florida waterfront real estate just for you

(back) Subject: Vivaldi for the Organ From: "Carlo Pietroniro" <organist@total.net> Date: Fri, 8 Dec 2000 01:55:45 -0500   I picked up a new book today. It's called "Vivaldi For The Organ". It's a book of 11 pieces transcribed by Trevor Webb. It consists of both instrumental and vocal movements of Antonio Vivaldi's works. There are = sadly no original works for the organ by Vivaldi, and thanks to Trevor Webb, we now have 11 more. We all know that Bach transcribed several of his = concerti, which most of us have in our repertoires. This book is published in 1995 = by G. Ricordi & Co., (London) LTD, The Bury, Church Street, Chesham, Bucks. = HP5 1JG. The reference number is LD912. I highly recommend this book for the organist who wishes to include Vivaldi works in their repertoire.
