Anyone out > there do that with your choirs?   Yes, the Senate House Singers did it (with piano accompaniment, not organ) in their Christmas concert last week here at the University of London. It was well received, though I didn't like Rutter's harmony at the end of verses 1 and 2. It struck me as being rather maudlin and sentimental. Having said that, I freely admit that I couldn't have written it, or anything approaching it.   Mark Harris Librarian, Senate House Singers Senate House, University of London  
(back) Subject: ALL READ - RE: email formats From: "Administrator" <admin@pipechat.org> Date: Mon, 18 Dec 2000 07:15:07 -0600   Folks   This problem seems to crop up from time to time BUT it should not be a topic for list discussion. Although this discussion might have helped convince people that they might have something set wrong in their email program, more than just my sending a note to them about the problem.   In the "old days", actually not that long ago, all email programs only sent in Plain text but with the newer programs options have been added for sending "stylized test" which basically translates into sending a posting in "HTML" format. HTML format or coding is what is used for Web Pages where it can be read without all the "garbage" showing up. Many email clients today can also decode the "HTML" format but not everyone's email client will be able to do so. That is the reason for some of the "garbage" - all sorts of <B>s, <P>s, etc., or strange background colors. - showing up in some posts from some list members in other members mail programs.   Part of the problem also has to do with all the different operating systems and different email programs that people use. In many cases something written by say MS Outlook Express on a Windows machine will not translate to be read easily by someone using Pine on a UNIX machine. Each operating system uses different parameters for their character mapping. And some of the programmers for some of these "proprietary" programs such as Outlook Express have not taken into consideration that there are people that need to read a message on some other email client and/or operating system. AOL with their 6.0 version seems to be the worst offender in this regard currently. I guess they feel that everyone in the world uses their program so they haven't done anything about being able to send in Plain Text.   This problem gets even worse for those members of the list that are subscribed to the Digest version of the list, which is approximately about one third of the members of this list. The list server takes each post that comes to it and adds it to a text file that is then sent out as the Digest. When it gets a post that has "stylized" coding in it the server not only just adds the plain text version but also adds the text a second time with the "HTML" coding. The following is just a bit of the last digest that was sent out during the night. I have only selected a small section of the digest and by selecting this I am not trying to embarrass any one member of the list but just trying to give the rest of you an idea of what the digest folks have to deal with when reading their copy of the digest. ***************************************** ------=3D_NextPart_000_0002_01C0652A.44531020 Content-Type: text/html; charset=3D"iso-8859-1" Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable   <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN"> <HTML><HEAD> <META http-equiv=3D3DContent-Type content=3D3D"text/html; =3D charset=3D3Diso-8859-1"> <META content=3D3D"MSHTML 5.50.4207.2601" name=3D3DGENERATOR> <STYLE></STYLE> </HEAD> <BODY bgColor=3D3D#ffffff> <DIV><SPAN class=3D3D520112201-14122000><FONT face=3D3DArial = color=3D3D#0000ff =3D size=3D3D2>Hi=3D20 Rebekah - I just tried this and here's what I come up with.&nbsp; Note =3D that=3D20 Capital letters are major, lower case are minor.&nbsp; Two letters with = =3D a slash=3D20 indicate the chord first and the pedal note second.&nbsp; The pedal =3D notes a=3D20 critical to getting the right sound.&nbsp; The inversions are less=3D20 critical.&nbsp; </FONT></SPAN><SPAN class=3D3D520112201-14122000><FONT =3D face=3D3DArial=3D20 color=3D3D#0000ff size=3D3D2></FONT></SPAN></DIV> <DIV><SPAN class=3D3D520112201-14122000><FONT face=3D3DArial = color=3D3D#0000ff =3D   size=3D3D2>G&nbsp;&nbsp; a7&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; G&nbsp; D7/Gb&nbsp; =3D A7/E&nbsp;=3D20 D7&nbsp; G/B&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;C&nbsp;&nbsp;G/C&nbsp; D7&nbsp;=3D20 G</FONT></SPAN></DIV> <DIV><SPAN class=3D3D520112201-14122000><FONT face=3D3DArial = color=3D3D#0000ff =3D   size=3D3D2></FONT></SPAN>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV><SPAN class=3D3D520112201-14122000><FONT face=3D3DArial = color=3D3D#0000ff =3D size=3D3D2>O=3D20 come, let us&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; a = -=3D20 dore&nbsp; Him,&nbsp; Chirst,&nbsp; the Lord!</FONT></SPAN></DIV> <DIV><SPAN class=3D3D520112201-14122000><FONT face=3D3DArial = color=3D3D#0000ff =3D   size=3D3D2></FONT></SPAN>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV><SPAN class=3D3D520112201-14122000><FONT face=3D3DArial = color=3D3D#0000ff =3D size=3D3D2>Hope=3D20 this is what you wanted and that it works for you.&nbsp; By the way, I =3D think=3D20 it's better in the key of A - that way the pedal goes all the way down =3D to the=3D20 lowest C.&nbsp; It's in C in the Methodist Hymnal.</FONT></SPAN></DIV> <DIV><SPAN class=3D3D520112201-14122000><FONT face=3D3DArial = color=3D3D#0000ff =3D   size=3D3D2></FONT></SPAN>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV><SPAN class=3D3D520112201-14122000><FONT face=3D3DArial = color=3D3D#0000ff =3D   size=3D3D2>-Bert-</FONT></SPAN></DIV> <BLOCKQUOTE dir=3D3Dltr style=3D3D"MARGIN-RIGHT: 0px"> <DIV class=3D3DOutlookMessageHeader dir=3D3Dltr align=3D3Dleft><FONT = =3D face=3D3DTahoma=3D20 size=3D3D2>-----Original Message-----<BR><B>From:</B> =3D pipechat@pipechat.org=3D20 [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org]<B>On Behalf Of </B>Rebekah=3D20 Ingram<BR><B>Sent:</B> Wednesday, December 13, 2000 4:37 =3D PM<BR><B>To:</B>=3D20 PipeChat<BR><B>Subject:</B> Chords and Inversions for Adeste=3D20 Fidelis<BR><BR></FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT size=3D3D2>Hi all,</FONT></DIV> <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV><FONT size=3D3D2>I am trying to figure out the chords for the =3D popular=3D20 variation on the last verse of Adeste Fidelis.

But if there is any way of changing your email program to send only in Plain Text, PLEASE, PLEASE do so out of consideration for your fellow members.   Sorry to have gone on for so long about this but I felt it needed more than just a note saying "Send in Plain Text only" type of posting from me. The last time I sent something out about this problem I got several notes reminding me that not everyone can send in Plain Text. But if you can change your program PLEASE do so. There is usually something like a "Preferences" or "Settings" menu where you can make the change.   And now back to Happy PipeChatting!!   David -- **************************************** David Scribner Owner / Co-Administrator PipeChat   http://www.pipechat.org mailto:admin@pipechat.org

This is the = first time I've had the opportunity to play this piece with a solo reed. This Oboe is extremely colorful and although it works quite well as a chorus = reed, it is in a swell box that would make Henry Willis tingle!   On "Elegy" I used the Fern Flute 8 as a solo stop as well as part of the accompaniment. It was unfortunate, but not debilitating, that the Bourdon = 8 and Spitzflute 4 on the Great were unavailable because they are both beautiful as well.   The only deficiency in this organ (and what organ doesn't have one!) is = the typical 70's omission of a real string stop; however, I certainly would = not want to make the decision to get rid of the beautiful Gemshorn presently = in the Swell.

Somehow, the WURSI cable supplied to plug into the back of any keyboard with MIDI figures out which of the 32 notes I am playing and sends this info through the five wires of the MIDI cable.   Although my digital keyboard (Ensoniq ASR-10) has limitations, I can play sampled organ sounds but most importantly, practice the pedal parts as a real pipe organ pedal board. I paid $150 for the used pedal board and $450 for the WURSI box. Inexpensive, I thought, for what I got.   Antoni Scott

(back) Subject: A Christmas Pastoral - Bertram Luard Selby From: <DRAWKNOB@aol.com> Date: Mon, 18 Dec 2000 15:05:57 EST   Does anyone have "A Christmas Pastoral" by Bertram Luard Selby (1853 - = 1918)? If so, I would love a copy.   I have heard it on a CD (Christmas Organ Music, Martin Souter, Organist, = Isis Records) and it is a Victorian gem to die for! I'm 99.9% sure it is no = long in print or under copyright.   Thanks,   John

I hope = to have the problem corrected by then. I'm going to start by tightening = screws in the chest, but it does appear to be a diode problem. The organist's descriptions are no help whatever. Descriptive notes include such = specifics as "kaboom", "everything whooshes", etc. Unfortunately, she is the choir-director's wife! I'm sure you've never run into this before!!! ;-)   The technicians (sic) or (sick) around here prefer to leave these little piddling things until there are enough of them annoying the organist (who doesn't realize what they are) that they can take care of them all at once = in what is locally known as a REBUILD!!!   My last church was almost ready for a "rebuild". There were: non-functioning tremulant in the swell, three dead notes on the great, unregulated reed pipes, two burned-out lights in the console, pin-hole = leak in a combination action pneumatic (requiring solid state to correct), and three swell shades with non-functioning power pneumatics (the plastic bags =   were separating at the seams). This kind of crapola is far too common around here.   Hope to see you in February. Your help is much appreciated.   Bruce ~ Cremona502@cs.com with the Baskerbeagles in the Beagle's Nest ~ Visit Howling Acres at Ourworld.cs.com/Brucon502
