From: "Bob Elms" <elmsr@albanyis.com.au> Date: Thu, 21 Dec 2000 23:35:41 +0800   Most organists in Western Australia are unpaid except in the Cathedrals and capital city mainstream churches. Even then most are not professional musicians, but follow some other profession. Some teach in a college or University; in some churches there is a roster of volunteers, all unpaid. I was Deputy Principal of a large Primary School. We do it for the love of playing. However it is mostly one service a Sunday and maybe plus choir practice on a week night. I have been doing that in several different regions for many years, both in city or rural churches.

(back) Subject: RE: Recommendations From: "Randy Terry" <randyterry@laumc.org> Date: Thu, 21 Dec 2000 09:19:41 -0800   Oxford has at least 2 collections by British composer Harrison Oxley that seem to me to be a little more "lay-people" friendly, although I have the collections mentioned and the Noble settings are particularly famous, thus particularly worthy in the American composers.   There are settings by David N. Johnston that are nice as well. So many to choose from! If you don't do a lot of improvisation I think there are common tricks used in these settings such as the "lowered vii" chord, dominant pedal point, deceptive cadence before interlude, and organ = descants made out of alto/tenor lines played up an octave, that are valueable teaching tools.   Randy Terry   -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org]On Behalf Of DRAWKNOB@aol.com S   They're all good...

TTNoble's stuff is somewhat = useful at times, but I don't utilize it very much. He does give me ideas for my own harmonizations sometimes. I do use the first Rawsthorne book extensively - I really like his harmonizations. The second Rawsthorne = book is less helpful to me in a traditional Episcopal setting, because we don't sing as many of the tunes found therein. I have the Nixon book, but have not found use for it yet.   I also have most of Gerre Hancock's books, which I like, although some of his accompaniments are not as singer-friendly. In fact, some I have to modify for my congregation. I also own Colin Mawby's collection, but do = not care for them as much.   Am always interested in perusing more accompaniments and preludes by = others. Hope this helps.   Glenda Sutton

Some are quite good; some are quite dependent on = having the kind of organ that Noble played at St. Thomas in NYC when they were written ... I *long* for a good "Solo Tuba" in many of them (grin).   "Stand Up, Stand Up For Jesus", "Hark! the Herald Angels Sing", "Angels We Have Heard On High" come to mind as being particularly fun to play ...

I play most anywhere in my area (and within my denomination), not expecting pay, but taking it if it is given. My first reaction upon being asked if I was free for a certain Sunday would not be to ask how much it pays. I am not a great organist, but I get the job done and most people are pleased with what they hear. Of course the churches in my area aren't that big (1000 baptized max.), and some of them still don't pay. Most pay between 20-42.50 (of the 8 places I play), and the ones in Iowa tend to pay better (???). This is all plus mileage. If there are special services or you are just asked by another organist to play for them there is usually no compensation, which is fine for me. Its fun enough to play, pay isn't necessary (for me).   Paul
