(back) Subject: Stupid questions about Mulet From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@access.aic-fl.com> Date: Thu, 2 Mar 2000 20:14:14 -0600   Hi, all. I'm trying to get my hands on some Mulet organ scores, particularly the Carillon and the "Tu es Petra" and that genre (wasn't = there some collection called Byzantine something or other? It's obvious that = I'm really up on the subject of Henri's music). It seems to me vaguely that = in some discussion on the list several months ago, it was said that his music is now out of print. Is this true?   And while on the subject of his music, are there any wonderful recordings = of his music that you would recommend? (Off the top of my head, and again I haven't researched this, I don't recall seeing recordings of solely Mulet, so am interested.)   As usual, I have bitten off 40 or more projects and responsibilities, and = am deferring to the expertise on the list, inasmuch as work has reached an all-time stress level and I don't have time to research it myself, what = with 35 death/capital motions to finish scoping for the judge, a brand new = murder case, my mother to care for, an impending recital, and Lent and Easter, oh my!   Thanks very much for any help,   Glenda Sutton        
(back) Subject: la musique d'orgue de Henri Mulet..... From: "Carlo Pietroniro" <concert_organist@hotmail.com> Date: Thu, 2 Mar 2000 21:29:28 -0500   Glenda et al,   his music is still in print. The Byzantine Sketches, originally published bu Alphonse Leduc in 1920, are still available from = the publisher, in France. Masters Music Publications Inc. also have a copy of them out. As for Carillon-Sortie, it was never published by itself, but appeared in a book called "French Masterworks For Organ", originally published by J. Fischer & Bro. in 1963, and it's still in print. There was = a CD of the "Sketches" in the OHS catalogue a few years ago, but I doubt if it's still available. Glenda, you've made a very wise decision to get into the music of Herni Mulet. I ADORE the french composers, and Mulet is one = of the best!!!   Carlo  
(back) Subject: Mulet again From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@access.aic-fl.com> Date: Thu, 2 Mar 2000 20:45:28 -0600   After writing the first missive, I found my OHS catalog and found a copy = of the Esquisses Byzantines score to order. I assume it must be a Masters/Kalmus edition, but at least I found something.   Sorry.   Glenda

Fischer & Bro. in 1963, and it's still in print.   I have a single copy of Mulet's Carillon-Sortie that was published by H. = W. Gray, "Standard Seires of organ compositions," edited by Robert Leech Bedell, which I have had for quite some time. It does not indicate the = year published and I have no idea if it is still available. The price tag on it reads $1.25 from Belwin-Mills, so that tells you it's been in my = collection for many years! :-)   May I suggest checking with Brenda Durden at Frantic Organist Music Shop? You can reach her on e-mail at:   bdurden@ix.netcom.com   Brenda has been a terrific resource for me, locating things others have = said were out of print ... I highly recommend her.   Jason McGuire

All the pieces are in Byzantine Sketches, which describe musically various parts of Sacre Coeur Church in the Montmartre district of Paris (was Mulet organist there?) ... somebody help out with the correct French title, please ... French is NOT my language (grin).   Cheers,   Bud   Glenda wrote: > > Hi, all.
