I was thinking the same thing when I saw this thread appear.... the Willan piece is one of those that is "Easy but Spectacular" (Easy for a good choir...)   The Finzi is a wonderful piece, especially when listening to a "Schola Contorum".. However, for the average church Choir... as with many pieces that we hear.... sometimes biting off more than they can chew. Don't get me wrong on any of this... I'm all for taxing the abilities of a choir... that's what makes them good, but the Willan piece is really great!   Wayne

The pictures were taken on Feb. 7 this year - on occasion of TV-filming by the History Channel and the German Public TV SWR - by Antoni Scott. Thanks to Antoni for the great pictures. Thanks to the host, Charles = Swisher.   Hans-Friedrich Hell

The other morning, at around two, Shadow Cat tracked down a mouse and slid = it under the bedcovers. "Breakfast in bed! Surprise!" chirped the cat (2' octave flute). She has proven numerous times that she knows how to kill mice, but all of a sudden for some reason she seems determined to teach = her stupid pet humans how to hunt. Maybe it's because the economy has slowed down. She figures we need better emergency survival skills around here. = So she brought us a live one.   "Eeeeeeeeeeeeek!" screamed the mouse, scrambling up my body and across my face and then onto the floor and running for its life.   "~!@#$%^&*!!!" yelled Lelia and Kevin, tumbling out of opposite sides of = the bed.   "*&^%$#@!~!!!" shrieked the cat, outraged at our incompetence, as she = leaped in hot pursuit.   That four-way scream made a pretty decent Scharf IV mixture, with the = mouse at 4/5', the cat at 1', me at 1-1/3' and Kevin at 1-3/5'. During the next =   week, Shadow Cat brought us the live, kicking, squealing mouse four more times before Kevin finally managed to pop a shoe box over it. He told her =   that he took the mouse out back and ate it, and that it was delicious. He =   thanked Shadow Cat profusely for the free hunting lesson. We would rather =   not lie to the kitty, of course, but if she knew that Kevin deported the mouse to the great outdoors and let him go, she might feel compelled to = bring us another, soon, to instruct us in the error of our ways. Right now the mouse is probably getting drunk with his buddies in the sewer and telling tall tales to his admirers, about how he's so tough and so brave that he stayed in the feline-infested house of horrors and hitched a ride with the =   cat five times and a human once and lived to tell about it, "and I can = lick any one of you skinny little rodents, see if I can't."   I'll bet no dog can match Shadow Cat's Contra-Dulciana. According to eggspurts with highly sophisticated sound measuring equipment and a lot of =   time on their hands, the purr of a house cat can range down to at least 27 =   Hz--and maybe lower than that. (Where does a cat who's less than a foot = tall hide a bass pedal rank, anyway?) Maybe that explains why she's so fond of =   bass music. When I practice my bass saxophone, she sits right in front of = it and sometimes grovels to it. When I play my [Lelia ducks down behind the firewall] Yamaha Clavinova toaster on what passes for an organ setting, Shadow Cat likes to lie on the bass end of the console and purrrrrrrrr. = The fastest way to find her is to play the organ or a CD of an organ with = plenty of bass. She comes running.   Lelia Loban
