(Oh that all of our churches could be this way- sigh.) Scott F. Foppiano, National Shrine of the Little Flower     A Tribute to Anglo-Catholics (Tune:The Church's One Foundation)   Our church is mighty spikey with smells and bells and chants, And Palestrina masses that vex the Protestants. O happy ones and holy who fall upon their knees For solemn Benediction And mid-week Rosaries.   Though with a scornful wonder men see our clergy, dressed In rich brocaded vestments as slowly they process; Yet saints their watch are keeping lest souls be set alight Not by the Holy Spirit, but incense taking flight.   Now we on earth have union with Lambeth, not with Rome, Although the wags and cynics may question our true home; But folk masses and bingo can't possibly depose The works of Byrd and Tallis, or Cranmer's stately prose.   (Here shall the organist modulate)   So let the organ thunder, sound fanfares "en chamade;" Rejoice! For we are treading where many saints have trod; Let peals ring from the spire, sing descants to high C, Just don't let your elation Disrupt the liturgy.

It's a pity to have to carp that "Lambeth" should be "Canterb'ry" in the interests of scansion, but what the heck.   Anyway, what I was going to say was that it reminds me of a poem by Betjeman that fits the same tune (Aurelia) and begins:   The Church's restoration In eighteen eighty-three Has left for contemplation Not what there used to be.   (There's more, of course, but my addled brain cannot recall it).     Mark Harris =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

(x-post) From: <Robert_Lind@cch.com> Date: Thu, 28 Sep 2000 10:02:01 -0500   A friend of mine who works at Church of the Advent, Boston, says this was written by a guy named Tom Sopko. He wrote for it a Rogation Sunday about = two years ago. Evidently there's a procession down to the garden and they = "sing something funny down there," says my friend.   I've also seen this "first" stanza:   The Advent's wood foundation Is pilings in a swamp. The sexton checks them weekly To see if they are damp. For if dry rot should set in, These hallowed walls would fall; And soon there would be condos Where once stood Mosley Hall.   And to put this on topic, I recently received a new JAV CD featuring the = Advent organ. I like the repertory but felt the textures were somewhat blurred or unclear. Is this a fault of my old ears, my sound system, microphone = placement, underarticulation, overly thick registrations, or what?   Robert_Lind@cch.com       From: ScottFop@aol.com on 09/28/2000 09:00 AM     A Tribute to Anglo-Catholics (Tune:The Church's One Foundation)   Our church is mighty spikey with smells and bells and chants, And Palestrina masses that vex the Protestants.

(back) Subject: HELP: Good choral/organ pieces with ALTO solos From: <ScottFop@aol.com> Date: Thu, 28 Sep 2000 15:31:37 EDT   Does anyone know of any titles off hand (besides the Brahms Alto = Rhapsody)? For some reason I just can't think of any- they all seem to have soprano = or tenor solos. Any help and suggestions will be greatly appreciated!   Thanks in advance.   Scott Foppiano, Director of Music and Liturgy National Shrine of the Little Flower, Royal Oak, MI

Is this, by chance, for a wedding? :) Nothing surprises me anymore. You wouldn't believe the calls I've had for copies of the Iowa Fight Song to be played at weddings and even a funeral or two. Such is the dedication of our Iowa fans, even when the team loses 12 straight.
