I had the tune ``Westminster Abbey'' for my wedding march. Also, I played for a = large wedding where there was a full choir and the wedding party came down the aisle to Campra's ``Rigaudon'' with the bride using the tune ``Westminster Abbey'' of which the choir sang the hymn. ``Ode to Joy'' was sung by = choir and congregation for the bride and groom as they moved on from the chancel steps to the altar.   Of course one may use the hymn ``Fight the good fight''...or, how about ``Turn back, O man''. :-) Years ago I attended a wedding where the organist played - on the tower chimes for all to hear - ``It's the = loveliest night of the year''!!   In looking up the information on the wedding of Dorothy Papadakos in The = New York Times, I found an archive section and there were a few photos of the groom, dressed in his professional `clown' suite - mask and all.

For help in how to get on go to the PipeChat-L web page at:   http://www.pipechat.org/   Where you will find instructions on how to log on. It isn't complicated, and it is free!   As an added bonus those of us who have Real Audio installed in our computers, can listen to a live radio programme from Perth, Australia, 'Theatre Organ Time", hosted by Lesley Robinson and Gary Duggan, broadcast from RTRFM on 92.1. We wouldn't be able to hear this programme using = normal radio, but with Real Audio we are able to hear some of the finest Theatre Organs and superb performers plying them.   For more details about RTRFM, go to their Web page at:   http://www.global.net.au/~duo/   and listen in whilst you are chatting on PipeChat IRC.   For us in the Eastern Time Zone we hear the programme at 10.00 PM, but Lesley and Gary are actually putting it out on the air at 10.00 am = Saturday morning, Australian (Perth) Time!   Try it, you'll like it!   See you tonight,   Bob Conway.

From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Fri, 16 Jun 2000 17:42:34 -0700   The Unversal Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Churches (founded by The Rev'd Elder Troy Perry in Los Angeles in the late '60s to minister to THAT minority) is a perennial applicant for membership in the National Council of Churches ... periodically they get blocked by the Greek Orthodox, who vow to walk out if "those" people are allowed in (ain't "christians" grand?).   Well, anyway, the National Council was meeting in San Francisco to consider MCC's application one year, and Troy invited them all to Sunday service at Glide Memorial, where MCC/SF was meeting at the time.   It was the "usual" MCC festal service, with a huge choir, carrying-on evangelical organ and piano-playing, flowers everywhere, gorgeous vestments, etc. etc. etc. and, of course, Troy in full cry in the pulpit for at least an hour.   Comes time for Communion, and Troy gives his usual "y'all come, this is GOD'S Table" invitation. The startled delegates to the National Council found themselves receiving Communion together FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY!   Afterwards, of course, they said what EVERYBODY always says about an MCC service: "It wasn't what we EXPECTED."   Now, nobody in the history of MCC has ever gotten anybody to say what it was that expected (grin). They went on to talk about the gorgeous music, vestments, flowers, enthusiastic congregational singing.   Troy looked 'em straight in the eye and said, "Well, who do you think has been DOING your music and your flowers and your vestments all these years??!!"   You haven't HEARD singing till you've heard a full MCC church cut loose on "It Is Well With My Soul" ... when the fundies were demonstrating in front of MCC/SD, we'd open the back doors and I'd throw on the Trompette-en-chamade with the subs and supers and the congregation would turn around and sing the last verse to the fundies ... you could hear us downtown, at LEAST.   Dr. Laura hasn't a CLUE what the original Greek and Hebrew Scriptures say ... I'd recommend some good books, but I'm sure she wouldn't read them.   Cheers,   Bud   (closets are for surplices) (grin)
