(back) Subject: trooping the colors From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Sat, 01 Apr 2000 08:05:40 -0800   We do it twice a year: the Sunday closest to Veterans' Day and the Sunday closest to Memorial Day. Remembrance Days are part of the warp and woof of Anglicanism ... I plan to have a Color Guard from the VWF or American = Legion on Memorial Day Sunday ...Trooping of the Colors, Pledge of Allegiance and = the National Anthem before Mass, and a bugler to play "Taps" at the end after = the Retiring of the Colors ... then I'll play one of the old dirges (Dead = March from Saul, etc.) for the postlude ... everybody has a good cry and goes = home feeling good about their country and all those who served. I'm told our observance is RESTRAINED compared to Remembrance Day in Britain, one of = the two times in the year when ALL the churches are PACKED.   Cheers,   Bud.   Erik Johnson wrote:   > ><< I used to play in an Episcopal Church in Connecticut which did the = same > > thing except following the Doxology, the acolytes would grab = theUnited > > States Flag and the Episcopal Flag, bring them in front of the = altar, > >facing > > them to the congregation while we sang the last verse of America = "Our > > Father's God to Thee...." with suitable dramatic accompaniment by me = - > > starting softly, adding on each line, and finally opening the Swell = to > >let > > the tigers out on the last line.

(back) Subject: Upcoming Recitals (x post) From: <ScottFop@aol.com> Date: Sat, 1 Apr 2000 11:13:34 EST   As per requests, I wanted to announce to upcoming recitals that I will be playing.   Sunday, April 9, 4 pm (I believe) St. Mary's Cathedral, San Francisco (an all Bach recital)   Friday, May 5, 8:00 pm, Metropolitan United Methodist Church, Detroit (mixed recital of various composers)   Scott F. Foppiano, Director of Music and Liturgical Coordination National Shrine of the Little Flower, Royal Oak, MI  
(back) Subject: National Shrine Kilgen News (X post) From: <ScottFop@aol.com> Date: Sat, 1 Apr 2000 11:38:08 EST   Many developments have occurred in recent months that are worthy of being reported.   THE ORGAN REDEDICATION The 1933 Geo. Kilgen and Sons pipe organ, Opus 5180, will be presented in = a ceremony and recital or rededication on Friday evening, June 16 at 8:00 = pm. A gala reception will follow with the opportunity to meet the artist. = Thomas Hazleton will perform the recital, which will be digitally recorded live = for a CD release.   KILGEN RECORDINGS The organ will be recorded in May for release (hopefully) in time for the summer organ conventions. Details to follow as soon as contractual arrangements have been finalized. As the Principle Organist and Director = of Music at the Shrine I will be performing the first recording and an internationally known concert organist will be making a second recording = at the same time. (That artist's name will be released when all details are finalized).   BOOK ABOUT THE KILGEN A book detailing the instrument, with history and photos, is in process. = It will be printed by the time of the rededication recital.   I am sorry I cannot say more at this point but things are moving along beautifully and should be finalized within the next few days. Monsignor = (the Pastor) is on board with all details as is the Shrine's Director of Development. Things are getting pretty exciting around here and people = all over the area are realizing that an organ which was for decades a little known instrument, is a rare and exciting gem in the world of church music = and historic American organ building.   Scott F. Foppiano, Director of Music and Liturgical Coordination National Shrine of Little Flower, Royal Oak, MI

(back) Subject: Conn 903 for sale From: <MickBerg@aol.com> Date: Sat, 1 Apr 2000 12:57:16 EST   I want to sell my Conn 903 Remote Organ. This is the electronics of a Conn 900 Custom series Church organ. It is interfaced to a normal pipe organ console, with a few caveats.   It has four divisions, Swell, Great, Choir and Pedal. It is meant to be a church organ. There are about 12 voices on each division. It has 32,16,8,4,2, 2-2/3, 1- 3/5, 1 foot pitches. There is a quite effective Chiff on the Choir Flutes, and Vibrato on all divisions except pedal . It has eight output channels, two four channel amplifier chassis. The diapason and flute voices are electronically keyed, the reed voices = are audio keyed.   This thing is a bit of a beast. It uses 65 volts DC to operate the keying magnets. This is provided by = three 65 volt power supplies in the box. You must switch the 65 volts in your console from the key contacts, and keep it independent of the console rectifier voltage. The voice relays work off console rectifier voltage. It has been substantially rebuilt by an enthusiastic electronics amateur, after fire damage. The Conn 904 console was completely destroyed in that fire. I have been running it from a Klann console. The box is very plain, just varnished plywood. I would give you all the cabling, ready to wire into your console. I have plenty of documentation, and would help you with advice on installation, = but I guarantee nothing. I have built in an Alesis Microverb reverb, which I would include. This = gets input from all channels except pedal, and the output goes to two small = power amplifiers.   I would want to get enough money for it, to buy four channels of power amplification, which I need for my new system. Or we could remove one of = the amp chassis which I would keep, and combine the eight channels into four = amp channels.   You need to know something about electronics to keep this thing going. Beleive me, it ain't pretty. Price; two hundred and fifty dollars as is, and one hundred and fifty if I =   keep one of the amplifiers. I'm in San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles. The box is approx 50 inches high, 40 inches wide, 24 inches deep. Weight I =   guess around 200 pounds. I can't deliver it, buyer would collect.   Anyone interested?   Mick Berg.

(back) Subject: Re: And the angels lit the candles and the Rector elevated the cash From: <JKVDP@aol.com> Date: Sun, 2 Apr 2000 01:15:45 EST   Do many Episcopal Parishes still do Morning Prayer as the main service? Then what exactly are "Matins" and "Choral Matins"? Is Ante-Communion = still done as a service? Curious in Seattle  
(back) Subject: the decline and fall of Solemn High Morning Prayer From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Sat, 01 Apr 2000 22:47:18 -0800   Mat(t)ins and Choral or Sung Mat(t)ins are just gussied-up names for sung Morning Prayer, as Evening Prayer is to Evensong.   I know of virtually NO Episcopal OR "continuing Anglican" parishes that do Morning Prayer at the principal service three Sundays out of four (as was = the low-church custom in the old days), though I think the Episcopal Cathedral = in Birmingham AL alternates their two late services ... making two out of = three the Eucharist. But that's the only place I know of. I suppose there are = still some in Virginia (grin).   We sing full Mattins between our two Masses, just before Adult Sunday = School class, but it's not the Solemn High Morning Prayer of low-church days of = yore with sermon, big "anthem" canticles, a big offertory anthem and = collection with Solemn Elevation of the Cash (of course!). It's just straight Sung Mattins = ... the Psalter of the Day in Gregorian chant, the canticles in Anglican = chant, an Office Hymn, and that's that. Takes about 20 minutes, 25 with Te Deum.   "Ante-Communion" may still be read in a few old-fashioned low-church = parishes on Good Friday, since that's all the old Prayer Book used to call for. The = new Prayer Book has the full Good Friday liturgy, though, so I suspect Ante-Communion on Good Friday is dying out as well. We only have it = occasionally when the Rector's away and the Deacon does the Mass of the Pre-Sanctified (high-church name for the same thing, except with Holy Communion from the Tabernacle) since we have no curate and no supply priests.   Oddly enough, my people have taken to EVENSONG with great gusto ... had = about 30 last Friday night, with soup and bread afterwards ... nothing in = particular ... just a Friday night in Lent.   Cheers,   Bud   JKVDP@aol.com wrote:   > Do many Episcopal Parishes still do Morning Prayer as the main service? > Then what exactly are "Matins" and "Choral Matins"?
