(back) Subject: RE: Manz's Wacket auf From: "Randy Terry" <randyterry@laumc.org> Date: Wed, 29 Nov 2000 10:50:13 -0800   There are SEVERAL Manz versions of Wachet Auf. One is a trio, there is = one for a big reed, and I think there may be one other all contained in the 10 books of improvisations. Those have been reissued so you might find one book with all the advent and Christmas stuff.   -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org]On Behalf Of Jason Comet Sent: Wednesday, November 29, 2000 10:14 AM To: pipechat@pipechat.org Subject: Manz's Wacket auf     I am trying to find which book Paul Manz's "Wacket auf" is in. I've got = his second book of Improvitations, so it's not in there. I'm going to do the Bach version for the II Advent Prelude and the Manz version as the II = Advent Postlude - gives the congregation two different versions of it. Plus I'm doing the actual Chorale (Hymn) for an anthem/offertory (I haven't decided yet).   I'm hoping that JWPepper has it in stock so I can have it on overnight to me.   Thanks,   Jason Comet ___________________________________________________________________________= _ _________ Get more from the Web.

Look closely at the words and then look at the texts used in the lectionary for the Lutheran (and other denominations) Church.

Then we sing it again at the end on Christmas Eve. It is the last hymn in the Advent section in the Green Lutheran Book of Worship. We are going to fudge just a little more this year on Christmas Eve morning because we are in a new location and think that some visitors might come expecting Christmas. IT will = still be the 4th Sund of Advent though.   At 02:35 PM 11/29/00 -0600, you wrote: >Actually, "Joy to the World" may be more of an Advent Hymn then a >Christmas Hymn.

(back) Subject: Re: Advent Music For Organ From: "Stephen Ohmer" <knopfregal@yahoo.com> Date: Wed, 29 Nov 2000 14:22:09 -0800 (PST)   Playing for the LCMS, I know that there is a wealth of organ music based on the hymns of the season.... I tend to try to use more of the contemporary pieces (those written since 1900), and use some of the Bach chorale preludes only on occasion......   For example, at our first mid-week Advent service: Of the Father's Love Begotten - Charles Ore (admittedly Christmas, but Advent is a prelude to Christmas, and this piece fits both seasons for us.)   Prepare the Royal Highway - Ore Variations on Savior of the Nations Come (Sweelinck and Bach)   Hold on - here I go messing with seasons again, however, with the service I just wrote, it fits: In Thee Is Gladness (Bach, Manz and Ohmer) --- Patricia/Thomas Gregory <tgregory@speeddial.net> wrote: > Greetings: > > Two suggestions for Advent Organ Music: > > Prelude on "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel" ..... > Hal Hopson > Saint Cerilia Series > H.

(back) Subject: Re: Advent Music For Organ From: "Carlo Pietroniro" <organist@total.net> Date: Wed, 29 Nov 2000 21:00:50 -0500   when I improvise, I never play the same thing twice. Playing things like chorale preludes, toccatas, fugues, fantasies, and things like that are = NOT included when I say the word "improvise", which is what I meant by saying "never playing the same thing twice". Each member of the congregation = (where I play) probably has their own list of favorite organ pieces, but they = never come up and ask me to play a particular piece. I have a very vast repertoire, and I play a little bit of everything. I don't like playing = the same pieces over and over again. If I play a particular piece as a = postlude, it'll be at least 2 or 3 months before I play it again. Also, there are 5 masses per weekend where I play, and I play 5 different postludes (the titles are printed in the bulletin). So Bruce, answering your question = about how the congregation develops a repertoire of favorites--the same way everyone does. If they like a piece, they consider it one of their favorites. The next time I play it, they'll probably say to themselves (or to someone else), "hey, I like that piece", and since I print the titles = and composers in the bulletin, they'll know the name and the composer. Simple enough.   Carlo
