(back) Subject: Moller's bankruptcy From: <RMB10@aol.com> Date: Wed, 10 Jan 2001 06:57:14 EST   Regarding Desert Bob's comment about Moller....... The "community church outfit in NC" is Calvary Church, Charlotte, NC, = which houses the 205 rank Moller built between 1986-1990. Yes it was Moller's largest instrument, and the largest pipe organ built at one time. = However, although Moller lost money on the project at Calvary, it was not the = Calvary organ that put them in the bad financial shape that ultimately cost them their solvency. Following Calvary, they built a handful of large 100+ = organs that they underbid on, just to get the contract. Coupled with a Board of Directors who knew nothing about organs or churches, and who didn't understand that you couldn't go to a church and just tell them that you = were going to build them an organ, and that the whole process could take years = and years, they got themselves into major financial crisis. It was an ongoing =   process, not a one time deal that went bad and sent them to the bankruptcy court. As the former Organist/Assoc. Minister of Music at Calvary, I was able to preside at the =   magnificent organ built by Moller with tonal work by Irv Lawless. It is = not your typical Moller, nor is it the cause of Moller's demise. Even though = I'm no longer at Calvary, I still get frustrated when they get the blame for what Moller did to themselves.   Monty Bennett

Quite ungentlemanly of me was the only successful solution to my desire to score = at least one point: I found the only way was to place a return ball to the = side corner of the net, and then to place the followup return to the exact opposite.one. Reaching for the second return was out of the question . . = . and she couldn't run around the table fast enough to complete the = followup.   Dennis James

(back) Subject: anthems on particular Gospel readings (X-posted) From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Wed, 10 Jan 2001 13:51:32 -0800   I'm looking ahead, and sorta drawing a blank for the next few weeks ... does anybody have suggestions of easy (and easy-to-find) anthems on the following (we use the old one-year lectionary):   Epiphany 3 - the marriage in Cana   Epiphany 4 - the centurion's servant and/or the Preservation of the American Episcopate, which falls on Epiphany 4 this year ... themes: orthodoxy, the Great Commission, etc. ... we'll probably read the Epiphany 4 lessons, but sing the Minor Propers of the Votive Mass for the Ending of Schism, since Epiphany 4 is a Dominica Vacat.   (we're celebrating Candlemas on Epiphany 5)   Septuagesima - the parable of the labourers in the vineyard   Sexagesima - the parable of the sower   Quinquagesima - "though I speak with the tongues of men" (Epistle) and/or "Behold, we go up to Jerusalem" (Gospel), which also includes the healing of the blind man at Jericho   I foolishly threw away all my reference stuff for the old lectionary when the new lectionary came into general use, thinking I would never use it again ... DUH!   Any help most appreciated!   Cheers,   Bud
