(back) Subject: The Feast of Richard Hooker in small-town America From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@access.aic-fl.com> Date: Sat, 3 Nov 2001 18:30:04 -0600   Saturday, November 3, 2001 The Feast of Richard Hooker - Holy Eucharist Closing Ceremony of the Small Church Conference St. Agatha's Episcopal Church DeFuniak Springs, Florida   Service music: Powell/Willan   Prelude: Mein Jesu, der du mich - Johannes Brahms Processional Hymn: The Church's one Foundation (Aurelia) - H 525 The First Lesson - I Corinthians 2: 6-10, 13-16 Gradual Psalm 37: 3-10 (sung) The Second Lesson - Ephesians 1: 11-23 Sequence Hymn: All praise to thee, for thou, O King (Engelberg) - H 477 THE HOLY GOSPEL - John 17: 18-23 (Stand) Offertory Hymn: My God, thy table now is spread (Rockingham) - H 321   Music during Communion: Come, thou fount of every blessing (Nettleton; H 686) Come, risen Lord, and deign to be our guest (first two verses to Rosedale, = H 305; last two verses to Sursam Corda, H 306) Closing Hymn: Ye watchers and ye holy ones (Lasst uns erfreuen) H 618 Postlude: The Queen's Procession - S. W. Oliphant Chuckerbutty   "The text of the chorale upon which Brahms' prelude is based complements = the scriptures for today. One translation: 'My Jesus leadeth me, immortal = joy to see in life eternal. See how His chosen one sings praise of God's own Son with love eternal.' Another reads: 'My Jesus, you who have chosen me for eternal delight, see how your property sings the great Bridegroom's glory.'"   The Rt. Rev. Phillip N. Duncan, II, Bishop of the Central Gulf Coast, Preacher and Celebrant The Very Rev. Mark Dunnam, Canon to the Ordinary The Reverend Ashmun N. Brown, Vicar Glenda Sutton, Parish Organist   The trouble with this town is that we have an inordinate amount of busybody biddies, and it seems a good number of them go to this church, making for lots of fodder for possible future Mapp and Lucia episodes (if only the author hadn't croaked).   However, this had to have been an episode out of Mr. Bean. As an aside, I am convinced that a visit to this church would be a cheap source of wonderful entertainment and mirth to people like Bud, Malcolm and our some of our English and high church brethren. I mean, look at the music that I play every Sunday on the tiny organ. On top of the grotesqueness of the music, just imagine a Mardi Gras queen sitting right in the back pew with = a really mean woman making nasty comments about others, including me, that I can hear, and another biddy keeping up several lively and audible conversations during the prelude and postlude. I truly miss the old = German lady who whispered at the top of her lungs about its being too cold in the church. Then there's all the acolytes and lay readers (none of whom are under 45 yoa) running around like energizer bunnies all out of step.   Anyway, on to the story. I tried to keep the service simple to avoid as much embarrassment as possible for the new Bishop's first visit. I had to go round up the second acolyte before beginning the prelude, but the = servers weren't ready to process at the end of the prelude.   We were going to sing Form III of the Prayers of the People, but the = cantor stood me up for rehearsal, not once but twice, and the backup didn't show for the second rehearsal. Because Form III meshed so well with the Gospel we were going to just say it, but then the Lay Reader decided at = the last minute that he would say Form I, so no one in the congregation (a packed house) knew where he was.   During the Offertory Hymn, the appointed busybody for the day (remember, = we have so many that there is a sign-up sheet) waited until the third verse = of a four-verse hymn to start the collection - I sweated bullets, because the bishop was ready to go, and I didn't want to play tiddly winks after I had planned a smooth transition straight into the Doxology.   The acolyte in charge of the bells did some really creative stuff, = tinkling at really inappropriate times and at each phrase of the Agnus Dei - go figure. By this time in the service I just pretended to be oblivious to = it all.   Then during Communion I was trying to segue smoothly from one hymn to another - the last time we have hymns during communion (the vicar and I decided afterward to go back to instrumental music during Eucharist). The same woman who almost wreaked havoc with the offertory planted herself on the bench while I was improvising from one communion hymn to the next and started talking to me. I was trying so hard to concentrate on what I was doing, and finally had to physically turn to her and say, "I cannot talk = to you right now." She jumped off the bench and stamped out of the church.   During this time the acolyte in charge of the wine was off in la-la land when they ran out, and during the ablutions the other acolyte (who can't = get the bells right) put in telling her (wrongly, of course) how to do it. These are supposed to be veterans - thank God my back is to all this every Sunday.   Well, I've listened to the soundtrack from "Leap of Faith" (my favorite gospel music of all time) and drank a beer. The only good thing about = today was that we all dressed out in the same color gym clothes, and that the flower beds looked damned fine (a day's worth of backbreaking work yesterday). Tomorrow's another day - another chance at All Saints' Day = with the Canon to the Ordinary, Clarence Dickinson and the T&F in D minor.   Hope your Saturday was more enjoyable,   Glenda Sutton

Along the lines of this thread,,,I wish to make an observation that has = been noticed increasingly more in the last few years. The younger generation of pipe organ enthusiasts, students, and followers, = are ever more leaning towards calling ANY product of either the Skinner = Organ Company, or the Aeolian-Skinner Organ Company----- a "Skinner". IMHO, this = is a wholesale misstatement, altho most perpetrators give a look like one has = 3 green heads when a gentle correction is made. It seems that credit should = be given where credit is due. Its a foolish consistency I know,,,and they are ususally the hobgoblins of =   little minds, but thats my .02 cents worth.

A half =   length reed such as a Bassoon could be used at 16 in the pedal and then as = a Cremona/Clarinet/Cromorne in the upper register by dividing it at middle = c. You would then have a 16 Bassoon and a 4 Cremona in the pedal, and an 8' Cremona on the Great. Then a separate Trumpet 8 of "modest" proportions would be very useful. These stops by their location would be easy to = keep tuned and clean.
