(back) Subject: Brides: not from my planet From: "Charles E. Peery" <cpeery19@idt.net> Date: Wed, 22 Mar 2000 06:31:18 -0400   Two different bride phone calls this week: #1, whose soloist is doing the "wedding version of the Lord's Prayer" (what the heck is that?) and who = was planning to (an hour before the wedding) hand me a cassette tape of the second song (Christian solo artist), which I was supposed to somehow... I dunno, INGEST and make the accompaniment come out of my hands and #2 who called to "inquire about a soloist", and her basic question was "What is it?" Then, later, when I calmly asked "Do you have an idea whether you'd like a male or female soloist?" said "OH! I didn't realize those were my choices!"   Chuck Peery Cincinnati

(back) Subject: expletive deleted and the modern church From: <Quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Wed, 22 Mar 2000 07:57:30 -0800   Despite Pius X's pronouncements on Modernism, the Church at the beginning of the 21st century reflects popular culture. Having attempted to "baptise" it in the 1960s, it was instead overwhelmed by it. The camel's nose in the tent was followed by the rest of the camel in short order.   Nor is this phenomenon limited to the RC church ... pick up a copy of the current Book of Common Prayer, or the current hymnal of any mainline denomination, if indeed there IS a hymnal (as opposed to a disposable paperback, or, worse, a projection screen).   Meanwhile, instead of attempting to DO something about it, the churches have divided themselves into mean-spirited, circle-the-wagons right-wing groups and anything-goes-as-long-as-it-has-shock-value left-wing groups, with a generous sprinkling of "God is so STINKIN' awesome" (a direct quote from a youth preacher on Trinity Broadcast Network) mega-churches with a theology that is best described as a mile wide and an inch deep. These latter have to constantly re-invent themselves because of the high turnover in their congregations, due to the lack of anything to hold people beyond the first flush of excitement.   Comments of boomers and Gen-Xers notwithstanding, the organ is a symptom, not a cause.   However, due blame must be laid at the "purists' " door ... the neo-classic tracker revival signaled the beginning of the organ's dethronement as King of Instruments. Boring organ recitals consisting entirely of literature from BEFORE Bach (I once heard a recital by a "major" player where the PEDALS weren't used for the first half of the recital) didn't help, either. One has to wonder what the old civic organists were doing RIGHT that we're doing WRONG.   Ageism also plays a part in the decline of the churches, as evidenced by the former comments about "geriatric choirs" ... the average age of my choir is probably somewhere between fifty and sixty ... they show up faithfully every Wednesday for rehearsal, and every Sunday for High Mass; they also take time off from work to sing ALL Requiems and Nuptial Masses; most take a week of vacation from their jobs during Holy Week, since we have services or rehearsals every day from Palm Sunday through Easter Day. Looking over my congregation, I don't see ANYONE under forty who's willing to make that kind of commitment, week in and week out, year after year. Yet we tell the volunteer backbone of our churches that they must get on the bandwagon of change or be left behind in the dust.   Well, not at St. Matthew's, at least.   And my singers wonder out loud who's going to carry on when they're gone. Attempts to start a youth choir simply couldn't compete with soccer, baseball, basketball, dance lessons, etc. etc. etc., not to mention TV and the Internet. Fortunately, we're in a position to go to paid singers on a regular basis within the next year or two (we already have them regularly as substitutes, and on big days), but that isn't a viable option for most churches.   I was interviewed by the local newspaper in San Diego some years ago when I started a Schola Cantorum for the preservation of Gregorian Chant in the service of the Church. The interviewer asked me if I foresaw a renaissance of Gregorian Chant. My reply is still valid: "No. That's why I'm doing this." Despite the Chant's appearance on the radar of popular culture, it has yet to find its way back into the SERVICE, for the most part. There's even one lady at St. Matthew's who regularly proclaims, "I LOVE chant; I just don't like it in CHURCH."   Go figure ...   Cheers,   Bud

However, I'd at to your discussion question, "How do we get the >organ out of church and back into the public ear again?" > >DeserTBoB   A very good question indeed! I am inclinded to say that the public will more than likely not be enthusiastic about Mr/ or Mrs. So-and-so = performing Bach, Glass, Heiller on a 10 rank box of flutes! Public desire is = swinging back to "grand effect" alla the Messiah Performances in Royal Albert Hall with hundreds and hundreds of singers not 40. The "public" is in need of something to wow them - something they can't get everyday. Something special!!!   I hesitate to say that un-enthusiastic playing of historical or specialist =   music on a 10 - 20 rank organ may be quaint and delightful for OHS / AGO = and other organ minded people - however the general public is frankly BOARD TO =   DEATH with this. Forget listening to it in public - they don't even want = it in church!   A grand effect with energetic playing of good classical music (and crowd pleasers) is a sure hit. If you disagree - compare the attendance of a Virgil Fox recital to any current organ recital by even the best organist = on the biggest organ. \   Until we organists get off of our soap boxes and learn that the organ is (immagine that) A MUSICAL INSTRUMENT - which performs MUSIC (golly) - and stop trying to impress ourselves or our collegues the organ will never be popular.   All the Best,   The Maitre   ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com

This is a project of mine, assembling a 3 manual, 4 channel tonewheel Hammond out of parts from various H-100s (extry "harmonics", ya know!), a BC (another generator AND the prewar chorus generator), and RT-3 (pedal solo unit with the good = farty noises, natch!) and an E (AGO pedalboard a must!), all in a custom = mahogany console and bench.

One still has to deal with those dreaded "pinaner" keys, non-overhung, of course. The "HBCERT-3100" will have overhung H-100/X-77 manuals positioned and canted per AGO specs. In case you're wondering, my silly "project number" breaks down into H-100, BC, E and RT-3, all used in the project.   Hammonds are a great hobby, and profitable now, too. Happy the man or = lady who's had a B-3 sitting pristine in his/her living room with a Leslie 122 for many years...it's now worth upwards of $6000. Plus, there's nothing like the smell of warm Hammond oil in the morning....<snarf snarf>   While we're on Hammonds: It should be common knowledge that Hammonds are not tuned to the equal tempered scale, owning to the mathematical and mechanical limitations of the tonewheel generator system. Thus, I got to thinking...I wonder how close the Hammond came to other temperments?? I shall report back later, after doing some 'puter analyses and head-scratching. Perhaps I'll name the Hammond temperment "Hammeister"!! heheheheh!   DeserTBoB

We have the most outstanding organ in this area - even Tulsa although a few will disagree (but they'll be wrong ;-). Normally I adjust tempi, space between verses etc on the acoustical situation. A few weeks ago I tried something a bit out of the ordinary.... I *really* picked up the tempo of the hymns (pro-rec) and kept the rhythm going, counting EXACTLY the right number of beats between stanzas..... and chose a different metre for the hymns - the entrance being in 5/4! I also decided to go for the guts and let'er rip a bit with the mixtures. (Controlling them carefully, though). The response was wild. Even at the early mass with less than 200 people the singing was more typical of 400! At the later liturgy with 350 or so people it sounded like the old full church days. Guess that we've gotta change when we need to. One pastor in an lcms congregation told me that at his parish it was better to err on the side of too fast than too slow. I'm inclined to agree these days.   Variety also helps.   steveohmerinbartlesville   =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D     __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
