(back) Subject: St. Matthew's-by-the-Trailer-Park update (X-posted) From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Thu, 04 Jan 2001 17:16:18 -0800   Hooked up the organ today ... it works (sigh), after some fiddling with the plugs for the pedal ... somebody had plugged them in upside-down. Twisted some knobs and got a decent trumpet, but doing that throws everything ELSE out of balance. So be it ... I LIKE the trumpet (grin) .... I can always play Spanish baroque ...   The room is somewhat better ... hard floor, enamel paint on the walls.   We have choir practice tonight ... the choir room is useable, even with most of the sacristy still in boxes in it ... the sacristy isn't finished. I found all the music.   Nursery - finished   Rector's office - finished (of course).   He looked around today and said, "Well, there's not much for me to do until we can set up the altar" (the chancel isn't finished) ... *I* said, "how about emptying out my CAR and helping me hook up the organ??!!" He wasn't amused; but he was the only able-bodied man in the place at the time.   Parish hall - a shambles - all the cabinets have to be put up   Office - finished   Sunday school - finished   Church - anybody's guess ... the pews are in ... they were still painting today ... too smelly to have choir practice, but we'll have to run in and practice the procession and see how the room sounds.   We have no center aisle ... the room is too narrow ... so we have a kind of off-center Akron plan Baptist nave with two aisles. Hope we don't have any funerals ... we can't get a casket up the aisle!   We need more light over the choir, but I brought the track lighting from the Sanctuary of the old place. It just has to be put up.   Volunteers have been notable by their absence, but somebody just wrote a check to pay for the whole move, kit and caboodle, so I'm not complaining (grin). Now if they'd just write one for the O-R-G-A-N.   Cheers,   Bud

Speaking of Reger.....he's one composer I'd rather stay away from, thank you very much. I'm not one to shy away = from music, but his stuff is wicked. It's like.....you have to have 6 fingers = on each hand to play it!!! Karg-Elert's music is pretty hard too, especially his "7 Pastels from Lake Constance"............yikes!!!!!   Carlo

Unfortunately, the whole organ is still packed up - in what WILL BE the kitchen in this house!! <G> Luckily, there is room for an organ chamber in the house, in what WAS a kitchen!!   There is a photo of the organ in the previous house on the DIYAPASON-L Web Site - the page is at: http://www.diyapason.pipechat.org/webpages/Scribner/default.html   LOL   David  
(back) Subject: Reger or Karg-Elert: no pain, no gain (grin) From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Thu, 04 Jan 2001 17:57:58 -0800   Carlo - Reger and Karg-Elert are part of the standard modern concert = repertoire of any professional organist. Some even play them in CHURCH (grin).   I LOVE the Lake of Constance pieces.   Here are a couple of tricks I employ (they also work with the big Messiaen pieces):   (1) enlarge the score as big as you can make it on 11 x 17 paper ... the = notes separate out and are MUCH easier to read. Later, after you've learned = them, you can play from the smaller score.   (2) don't start with the biggest, hardest piece. I will NEVER play the = BIGGEST Reger pieces, but I went from the Benedictus to the Introduction and = Passacaglia to some of the other medium free pieces, and the medium chorale preludes = (Op. 100?).   In the case of Messiaen, I discovered that after I'd mastered a fair = amount of Vierne, Widor and Langlais, I could handle the easier Messiaen pieces, = because the other composers put him in context.   Cheers,   Bud   Carlo Pietroniro wrote:   > was it Max Reger or Sigfried Karg-Elert who composed their music in a = manner > that no one else could play them?

(back) Subject: Moving Drawknobs Search is Over From: "Paul Soulek" <soulek@frontiernet.net> Date: Thu, 04 Jan 2001 21:37:46 -0800   Thank you to everyone who helped find files to use for moving drawknobs on the Hendrickson Organ site. I found a great example and will be working on the files.   After only a few weeks of the Hendrickson Organ Company website <http://hendricksonorgan.com> I have been thinking of a revamp to make the site more professional looking. This will be completed in a few weeks. If you have signed up for updates on the site that will be the only way you will be updated.   There will be new content added as well, mostly the MP3 collection. There will be 1 full CD of strictly organ music (Wayzata Community Church, Wayzata MN, 4/70, 1998) , and 1 full CD of the Gustavus Adolphus College choir with opus 45 (First Lutheran Church, St. Peter MN, 2/44, 1979).   Paul Soulek Webmaster
