(back) Subject: WE are BACK - sort of!!! From: "Administrator" <admin@pipechat.org> Date: Fri, 15 Dec 2000 20:19:03 -0600   Hi folks   Sorry about the unanticipated outage with the PipeChat list - we had a MAJOR ice storm here in Little Rock on Wednesday and our power went out on Wednesday night. We are finally running the list server and Hopefully the IRC server also, by using a borrowed generator. We have been with out lights since 8:30 Wednesday evening.   Hopefully we will be able to keep things running with this generator until the power is restored. I keep checking with the power company but they still don't know when we will have it down here at the house. Something like 90,000 customers have been out here in town with several hundred thousand around the state.   I just wish i had sent off a note to everyone prior to this problem but that is all in hindsight now. Hopefully there won't be too many problems with this generator.   Happy PipeChatting   David and Tim -- **************************************** David Scribner Owner / Co-Administrator PipeChat   http://www.pipechat.org mailto:admin@pipechat.org

Outstanding photography makes this film." The book gives it four stars.   I saw it in a movie theater in 1967 and have been haunted by the beauty of the photography and the Mozart melody ever since. I've seen it available on the shelves of video stores, I think.   Go rent a copy and sit down with your hubby, a grilled cheese sandwich and a bottle of red wine. I think you'll enjoy it.   Randy Runyon runyonr@muohio.edu Professor of French Miami University (Oxford, OH)

(back) Subject: Re: X-post: A Casavant problem!! From: <Cremona502@cs.com> Date: Sat, 16 Dec 2000 00:01:50 EST   Alan, Just thought I'd try to answer your questions:   Why did the service people give up so easily? Because he is lazy!   What did they do to solve the problem? Nothing. His philosophy is: If you can still play the organ, work around =   it. It's not that bad.   Where you there? Nope. Apparently this has been going on for over a year.   Is there a service contract? Apparently so. The organ is tuned twice yearly.     You should let them know that if they do not take steps to fix it that = you may look elsewhere when their contract comes for renewal. Unfortunately it's not my call. In fact, in my career I've never had much =   luck getting a church to believe their organ service man is screwing them. = Evidently if he is cute enough or a sweet-talker enough his job is secure.   At First Methodist in Gainesville, last year I desperately tried to demonstrate to the Trustees that the service man was screwing them. He = was not repairing little things, was not doing a complete tuning as they = thought, and he was not doing the work himself, but sending a drunk to take care of = a 3/38 organ (with FOUR mixtures - III, IV and IV, and III ped). They informed me that he was the BEST and they were satisfied and I should just =   live with it; after all, he had been selected to rebuild and add to the prestigious organ at Riverside Presbyterian in Jacksonville. An interesting aside... Riverside Presbyterian had their rededication of the organ last month. Surprise, surprise, the contract had been taken away = from "our guy" and given to someone else mid-stream because the work had not = been done according to the contract and was way, way, waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay behind schedule.   There are just too many crooked organ guys in FloriDuh! Are we surprised???? ;-)     Bruce ~ Cremona502@cs.com with the Baskerbeagles in the Beagle's Nest ~ Visit Howling Acres at Ourworld.cs.com/Brucon502

(back) Subject: organ piece From: "Carlo Pietroniro" <organist@total.net> Date: Sat, 16 Dec 2000 00:03:23 -0500   I was running through "Christmas; Organ Piece For An Opening", by Gaston = M. Dethier today. This is the piece most people refer to as "Variation on Adeste Fidelis". I play the entire thing, which is 20 pages, whereas most people who play it, only play about 12 pages or so. Actually, I don't = think it's even available in it's entirety anymore. My original is dated 1902, = by Fischer. I'd like to know if there are any recordings of this piece available, and are/were there any organists who played the entire thing? First of all, I know for a fact that Virgil Fox played it, but not the entire thing. I have a CD of Richard Morris playing it, but he too leaves most of it out.   Carlo    
(back) Subject: Christmas Carol From: "DanielW Hopkins" <danielwh1@ns.sympatico.ca> Date: Sun, 17 Dec 2000 17:23:36 -0400   Had to pass this one along. ___________________________________________________________________________= __   There is oneChristmas Carol that has always baffled me: What in the world do leaping lords, French hens, swimming swans, and especially the partridge in a pear tree have to do with Christmas?   Today, I found out.   >From 1558 until 1829, Roman Catholics in England were not permitted to practice their faith openly. Someone during that era wrote this carol as a catechism song for young Catholics. It has two levels of meaning: the surface meaning plus a hidden meaning known only to members of their church. Each element in the carol has a code word for a religious reality which the children could remember.   The partridge in a pear tree was Jesus Christ.   Two turtle doves were the Old and New Testaments   Three French hens stood for faith, hope and love.   The four calling birds were the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke & John.   The five golden rings recalled the Torah or Law, the first five books of the Old Testament.   The six geese a-laying stood for the six days of creation.   Seven swans a-swimming represented the sevenfold gifts of the Holy Spirit: Prophesy, Serving, Teaching, Exhortation, Contribution, Leadership, and Mercy.   The eight maids a-milking were the eight beatitudes.   Nine ladies dancing were the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self Control.   The ten lords a-leaping were the Ten Commandments.   The eleven pipers piping stood for the eleven faithful disciples.   The twelve drummers drumming symbolized the twelve points of belief in The Apostles' Creed.   So there is your history for today. This knowledge was shared with me and I found it interesting and enlightening and now I know how that strange song became a Christmas Carol ... so pass it on if you wish." ___________________________________________

There are, for example, two preludes which go through all the major keys. These were written as an academic exercise and were not intended to be pieces anyone would ever play. I imagine he mostly improvised his voluntaries and never wrote any of them down -- like Gabriel Faur=E9, said to have been a better organist than Franck, Saint-Saens or Guilmant -- but, alas, we shall never know.   John Speller

If there is a way to access that stop I'd like to know how so I = can rig the organ...I'll sacrifice the 32 Contrebasse as it isn't that much = more effective that the 32 C'Bourdon in our venue.   thanks   Rick M

London: Elkin = & Co., Ltd; New York: Galaxy Music Corporation, 1923. Included: 1. Kyrie eleison; 2. Ave Maria, 3. Resonet in laudibus, 4. Adeste, fideles, 5. Saluto Angelico, 6. Lauda Sion. If it's in print, Brenda Duden can locate it for you; if not, let me know and I'll send you a copy.   The Resonet in laudibus calls for the third f-sharp and b-natural above middle c to be "fixed" on the swell (voix celeste) for the duration of the piece. I wonder if John Walker does this in the recording you cite. I also wonder how to make a black key stay down; a white key is no problem--just wrap my organ technician's business card around it, as in = the Dubois March of the Magi Kings.   Randy Runyon organist, Immanuel Presbyterian Church, Cincinnati runyonr@muohio.edu
