Or City Hall, for that matter? I've seen photographs contemporary with the construction of those buildings, and they stand out like sore thumbs. Now it's hard to imagine Downtown without them. Funny how the perspective of a few years changes things, isn't it? I wonder if there's a lesson here...   >Remember, Gehry has gotten even "driftier" since the >Guggenheim project, as goofy as that was in itself.   I think you'll find that Disney was designed before Bilbao, even though the latter was completed first.   >My wife's cousin, a >prestigious Manhattan architect who has a high rise apartment project going >up on the New Jersey side of the river, could only laugh and laugh when I >tried to ask him his thoughts about "Wizzley".   I'm sure that your wife's cousin is a fine architect, but expecting architects to admire the work of fellow practitioners (especially those who have earned high dollar, high profile projects) is even more improbable than hearing appreciation from organists or organbuilders for their colleagues, something you should well understand.   To bring this to a close (because it's clear when terms such as "masturbatory exercise" and "stroke job" are used in a discussion of design principles that rational discourse has ceased): The world is filled with nay-sayers who feel it is their curmudgeonly duty to carp about everything that doesn't conform to their prejudices. The thinking individual waits until he or she has all the facts, and then makes a judgment. Unfortunately for the grumblers, all the facts about Disney won't be had until the hall opens in 2003. The rest of us are satisfied to wait until then.   John A. Panning Lake City, Iowa     The "Protest against the Tower of Monsieur Eiffel" was published in the newspaper Le Temps, and was addressed to the World's Fair's director of works, Monsieur Alphand. It was signed by well-known names from the world of literature and the arts: Charles Gounod, Alexandre Dumas junior, Leconte de Lisle, Sully Prudhomme, William Bouguereau, Ernest Meissonier, Victorien Sardou, Charles Garnier and others to whom posterity has been less kind. Other satirists pushed the violent diatribe even further, hurling insults like "this truly tragic street lamp" (L=E9on Bloy), "this belfry skeleton" (Paul Verlaine), "this mast of iron gymnasium apparatus, incomplete, confused and deformed" (Fran=E7ois Copp=E9e), "this high and skinny pyramid = of iron ladders, this giant ungainly skeleton upon a base that looks built to carry a colossal monument of Cyclops, but which just peters out into a ridiculous thin shape like a factory chimney" (Maupassant), "a half-built factory pipe, a carcass waiting to be fleshed out with freestone or brick, a funnel-shaped grill, a hole-riddled suppository" (Joris-Karl Huysmans).   Once the Tower was finished, the criticism burnt itself out in the presence of the completed masterpiece, and in the light of the enormous popular success with which it was greeted.   http://www.tour-eiffel.fr/teiffel/tour_uk/fichedoc/page/pg_debat_1.html

Worthy ministers of the Gospel do every bit as much work as church musicians during this season. Plus people continue to have difficulties, become ill and/or to die. There is and should be a great kinship between the pastoral work of the musician and the clergy. Any church musician worth his/her salt has a finger on the the pastoral care "pulse" of the parish. Where clergy and musicians collaborate on care of the congregation, everyone benefits.   Ben Baldus   Innkawgneeto@cs.com wrote:   > Yes, we expend incredible amounts of energy and emotion for the Holy > Week > music. > > But, we shouldn't forget that ministers worth their salt also expend > incredible amounts of energy, especially if they preach at multiple > services. > > I love Easter, but I'm glad it's over. > > Neil B

(back) Subject: Re: joining this and that From: <SProt82850@cs.com> Date: Mon, 16 Apr 2001 21:19:19 EDT   As to AGO chapters, they definitely vary from chapter to chapter. I = highly recommend the Kansas City chapter. They have a monthly social hour = followed by a catered dinner and chapter meeting and then a recital or music event. = People are very friendly, the chapter is quite proactive and quick to recognize and welcome guests and new members. Even though I now live in Minneapolis, I maintain my Kansas City chapter membership to support a = great group and wish I could participate in their monthly events.   On the other hand, the Twin Cities chapter needs some lessons in outreach, =   basic hospitality and prompt response to interest in their chapter. I = just wrote them a note complaining that my dual membership check was mailed in December and cashed in early February but I have yet to receive a chapter newsletter or even an acknowledgement of joining. I told them I have lost =   interest and want my money refunded! I wonder how many other prospective members have been lost?   An interesting aside to this is that the newspaper and a TV station both = ran stories yesterday (Easter Sunday) about the shortage of organists here in = the Twin Cities. Surprise, surprise!!   Steven   P.S. If any Twin Cities AGO chapter members read this, I hope you care enough about both the future of the organ and your chapter to say = something, or better yet, do something!
