(back) Subject: Advent organ music--x-posted From: <Robert_Lind@cch.com> Date: Tue, 28 Nov 2000 12:21:45 -0600   I should have thought of this weeks ago, but I didn't. In collecting more = and more repertory, I find that I have very little really good organ music for Advent. A few years back Concordia published four Advent works of mine = under a single cover and at this point the only one I'd play is "Prepare the Royal Highway". They also published my variations on "Nun komm ...". I don't = know if I'd play them any more, either, but hey--at least I tried.   Please share with the list your thoughts on worthwhile organ literature = for this season.   Many thanks,   Robert_Lind@cch.com      
(back) Subject: RE: Advent organ music--x-posted From: "Randy Terry" <randyterry@laumc.org> Date: Tue, 28 Nov 2000 11:50:45 -0800   I'm trying to think of what I play that is written. All I can think of = are the obvious baroque CP's and a few of the Manz things. I had a local = friend compose a setting last year of Comfort, Comfort ye my people, which turned out well but will never be published, and I guess I improvised everything else. I always play the Bach Sleepers Wake and the ornamented Nun Komm of 18 great. I played a Manz Sleepers Wake that used the chamade. I guess I improvised everything else.   I'd be very interested to know what others are playing that is in the moderate category.   Randy Terry   -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org]On Behalf Of Robert_Lind@cch.com Sent: Tuesday, November 28, 2000 10:22 AM To: pipechat@pipechat.org Subject: Advent organ music--x-posted     I should have thought of this weeks ago, but I didn't.

(back) Subject: Re: Advent organ music--x-posted From: <JKVDP@aol.com> Date: Tue, 28 Nov 2000 20:27:55 EST   Because I work in a Presbyterian Church, we do the typical Presbyterian = thing of half-celebrating Advent. Anyway for a prelude this Sunday I'll play = "For Advent" by Paul Benoit as I have played during Advent for the last 20+ = years. His music wears very well! Postlude is Bach's "O Thou of God the = Father". Then the second Sunday of Advent I'll begin doing the French Noel's = ranging from D'Aquin through Balbastre to Franck and Guilmant. Also on the Second =   Sunday of Advent our Six Tenors will sing "Zion Hears the Watchman's = Voices" - Wachtet Auf - accompanied by Violin, Cello and Harpsichord. Oh, = somewhere along the way I always play "The Holy Child" by John Ireland. Jerry in Seattle  
(back) Subject: advent organ music From: "Maynard Cuppy" <cuppy.maynard@mcleodusa.net> Date: Tue, 28 Nov 2000 20:17:28 -0600   I guess I'll be using the Bach "Wachet auf" this Sunday. Was planning to use the Karg-Elert setting but didn't get around to getting it relearned.   I also like Corliss Arnold's "Fantasy, Choral and Toccata" on "Veni, Emmanuel," but I don't plan to use it this year. It's in a volume of American organ music published at least 30 years ago by Summy, I think. I also may use one or both settings of "Es ist ein Ros' entsprungen" (I think that's correct) by Brahms and Wilbur Held. Both very beautiful in my opinion.   Since we are currently without a pastor, I'm not sure how much attention Advent will get this year in a Baptist church. Usually about all it got was the lighting of the Advent candle. I'm praying for a new pastor who respects liturgy and can do more with the lectionary than spell it (with Webster's help). :) Oh well, at least the organist will remember what season it is. I think it's one of the easiest to choose music for.   Maynard Cuppy First Baptist Church Iowa City IA    
(back) Subject: Re: advent organ music From: "Ben Baldus" <bbaldus@voyager.net> Date: Tue, 28 Nov 2000 21:27:14 -0500   Dear Maynard & List:   I have a copy of Corliss Arnold's Veni Emmanuel piece if you need one. Also, Flor Peeters wrote a very nice setting of "Es ist ein Ros in his" = 100 volume collection of Hymn Preludes published by C.F. Peters. Carl Schalk did a lovely setting of the same for string quartet and orgel--it's published by MorningStar. You should also consider Karg-Elert's soft, = sweet saraband on "Freu dich sehr"--I've gotten more favorable feedback from = that piece than anything except for Hugh MacKinnon's (of Grace Cathedral, SF = fame prior to Purvis, Fenstermaker und Putnam) "Sleeps Judea Fair" at Christmas Eve.   Advent blessings,   Ben Baldus   Maynard Cuppy wrote:   > I guess I'll be using the Bach "Wachet auf" this Sunday.

It's copyright 1987 by Hope = Publishing Company, Carol Stream, Il., 60188. This descant appears in the hymnal "CBW III" (Catholic Book of Worship III), published by the CCCB (Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops), which is the official hymnal of english speaking catholics in Canada.   Carlo

I've just learned how to scan with my new scanner, and perhaps I can succeed at scanning it and sending it to you on line. Otherwise--and this woudl be easier for me at this point: should I snail-mail it to you? Address?   Cordially,   Karl E.

(back) Subject: SATB arrangement From: "Carlo Pietroniro" <organist@total.net> Date: Tue, 28 Nov 2000 23:36:20 -0500   I posted this on another list, and got nowhere, so I thought some of you nice people on Pipe Chat might be able to help me. I'm looking for as SATB arrangement of the hymn tune THAXTED. Right now, my choir is singing the actual notes written, which are the organ accompaniment notes, but I'd rather have a written 4-part version. All hymnals I've seen it in have the hymn written in the same way, intended to be sung in unison. Can someone help me find a 4-part arrangement for this hymn? The most common title for this is "O God Beyond All Praising". It's the tune written by Gustav = Holst, generally known as "Jupiter" from "The Planets".   Carlo
