Some people have very little to do if they can be bothered going to all the trouble of taking on = a false name. What is he trying to prove? Being anonymous just makes him look all the more foolish. Even if what he says were true, what business = is it of anyone else on the PipeChat? We subscribe to learn about organs and organ music, not peoples' personal problems. I still can't believe that anyone would have the gall to write such an email to the complete List.

It's called the "tall poppy syndrome".   I have never met Arthur and yet when I emailed him about Schmidt's music, = he went to all the trouble of posting me a complimentary copy of his CD airmail, so that I could hear the music for myself.

On my recent trip to Dallas I enjoyed, = for the umpteenth time, listening to tapes Arthur sent me of his performance = of some Schmidt, Trexler, and Vierne in Montreal. We have discussed the possibility of his coming to this area to give a concert. This is someone whose devotion to his current work is unexcelled in my experience. If we occasionally roll our eyes at some of his assertions on the list, that is hardly a unique situation with our varied membership.

(back) Subject: Epiphany, NYC From: "Jonathan B. Hall" <jonahall@indiana.edu> Date: Fri, 6 Apr 2001 09:56:30 -0400   Hi!   First of all, I want to let out a loud cybernetic cheer for Clive Driskill-Smith, who played a superb recital at Epiphany on Wednesday, = April 4.   One of the delights of the program, for me, was Guy Bovet's Salamanca--I love Bovet's playing, and such pieces of his as I've come to know. This was a new one for me, and showed mature mastery of form as well as Bovet's usual cosmic sense of humor. Clive, needless to say, batted it out as if it were easy. (Ah, to be young again!) The audience called him back three times at the end.   Afterwards, I was privileged to introduce Clive to one of the greatest, sublimest pleasures of New York life. We bought hot dogs at a hot dog wagon in Central Park with everything on them (ketchup, mustard, stewed onion, AND sauerkraut), and ate them greedily on benches at the Great = Lawn. Mmmmmmmmmm.     *   Second of all, this Tuesday I am giving a presentation at the church = called "Singing on Sunday: an Introduction to Sacred Music." I know, it's a title worthy of a two-semester sequence, and then some, and I have 90 minutes. However, you are welcome to come at 6 for a light supper and to participate. I am trying to bring a number of perspectives to bear on the practical issues of getting a congregation to feel comfortable singing on Sunday morning.     The church is at East 74th St. and York Avenue, easily accessible by bus, train, or taxi. Call the church at 212-737-2720 if you plan to attend, so Vera can make more soup and Cynthia more cookies, and so you can get detailed directions.   Call me at extension 24 and I'll tell you where to find that hot dog = wagon!     All best wishes,   Jonathan Hall O/C, the Church of the Epiphany

(back) Subject: Re: Grace Cathedral From: "Jackson R. Williams II" <jackwilliams_1999@yahoo.com> Date: Fri, 6 Apr 2001 07:25:31 -0700 (PDT)   I attend Grace Cathedral and am happy to report two things of interest: The organist-choirmaster, which position is now called Canon for Music, is Christopher Putnam who is truly a great artist. The music has been immensely inspiring and of the absolute highest quality. He is a great virtuoso organist, fabulous service player and improvisor and a first-class choral conductor. Maestro Putnam served as the cathedral's associate otganist-choirmaster for the past five years. He studied organ with Samuel John Swartz at the University of Redlands, and with Edgar Billups in San Diego. Additional coaching with Leslie Pratt Spelman. We are ecstatic to have Christopher Putnam here.   The other thing I wish to report is that we have had Alexander Frey this season as Visiting Organist-in-Residence. Mr. Frey has played some concerts here in the cathedral, the latest this past March, and has also played some of the services last summer and this winter, particularly one of the most exciting improvisations at Maestro Putnam's installation as Canon for Music. As you may know, Maestro Frey is conductor of two big European symphony orchestras and maintains a full concert schedule of guest conducting and playing engagements. He also comes to San Francisco every few months and spends a couple of weeks serving the cathedral. He was also soloist with the San Francisco Symphony (conducted by Michael Tilson Thomas) last summer on the orchestras "American Mavericks" series. We are extremely fortunate to have both these musicians in our midst.   I hope this brings you all up to date about the Grace Cathedral's Music Department.   JW --- ALamirande@aol.com wrote: > Someone claimed, publicly, that I had trashed Grace > Cathedral in San > Francisco. > That is not true. > > I don't know where this person derived that idea. > > It's actually a magnificent church, on an > extraordinary site.

(back) Subject: Support for Arthur From: "Jackson R. Williams II" <jackwilliams_1999@yahoo.com> Date: Fri, 6 Apr 2001 07:50:25 -0700 (PDT)   Dear Friends:   We all have erred; we all have said or done thoughtless things that have upset people. But we can change for the better. Arthur, like many organists, has strong opinions and no problem is forcefully expressing them. Aren't we all like that? But he, like you and me, has the right to discuss particular interests and disagree, even strongly with an individual, group or the status quo. Maybe a few times he has taken a disagreement as a personal affront and acted defensively. But haven't we all done that--and numerous times too? People learn from their mistakes, hopefully, and move on with their new attained wisdom. Arthur, like the rest of us, has done that. He is a knowledgable and valuable contributor to this list and knows something about subjects about which many of us know little (Franz Schmidt, organ history of New York and Canada). As to Research IV's reference about Arthur losing a job, consider the source--it's irrelavent and dubious information. Every organist I know (and they are many) has lost a church job at one time or another.   I sent "Research IV" an email saying that I thought his letter was very cruel and that he deserved to be bounced off the list. He then sent me the following reply. Please also see my second reply noted afterwards below. As you will see by my reply, the great wisdom of the words of our Lord is timeless and perfect:   --- ResearchIV@aol.com wrote: > Most organists can't deal with the truth about > themselves > and why they are self-destructive. > I see you're one of them. > My mission was accomplished.   Then, I wrote back:   >It is not your place to chastise people. >Remember the words of our Lord Jesus: >"Before you remove the speck from your neighbor's >eye, first remove the plank from your own."         __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
