Herbert Murrill   For the first time in over 15 years I had no Thanksgiving service to play. All the family was farmed out to the in-laws, my mother was sick and = unable to get out, and Rick and I went out to eat Thanksgiving dinner (a first = for us). However, we almost became traffic fatalities on the way, so I have learned my lesson and will "do" Thanksgiving next year.   It was fun feeding Thanksgiving meals to all the birds, the fish, the dog and cats. There's nothing quite like watching a pleicostomus (however it = is spelled) rotosucking tubifex worms off the aquarium wall. And the bluebirds, after over four years, "discovered" the "new" bird bath, to the delight of all.   We broke another tradition - for the very first time I bought an = artificial tree. I got tired of people stealing my tagged tree from the Christmas = tree farm, and last year at Lowe's we picked the tree, had it bagged, went to = pay for it, and the workers let someone walk off with it before we could get back with the receipt. This year's model is a nine-foot faux Carolina = pine, and it looks real. Trouble is that I can't reach even with the stepladder to secure the angel or to put on lights without help.   On Thursday afternoon we put the tree together. After Rick had left to visit his father, I decided I did not like the layout of the great room, = and moved every stick of furniture, including the grand piano (a few inches only), the sofa, the 8-ft. ficus tree and the 100-lb. faux tree, all by myself. I had to do a backwards crab crawl trying to hold the two legs of the stand off the floor that wouldn't fit on the rug, while scooting the whole contraption across the room. The black cat tried his best to help me - at one point I was resting on my stomach on the floor under the tree, convinced I had done permanent damage to myself, and he came up and lay = down beside me to comfort me. There's nothing like observing the rare = occurrence of a brown-nosing cat. When Rick came home, the room was transformed, and = I was into my second Crown and Coke, so he made the correct decision and = went into raptures about how great the great room looked.   Friday I dusted and tried to get some decorations done around the house, = and Saturday Rick suggested we go Christmas shopping! This from a man who = never goes Christmas shopping.   Enough, and on to the Sunday service. It began ominously enough, with torrential rain and lightning about 4 a.m. God was gracious and brought rain to Northwest Florida, which we badly needed, for every day of the Thanksgiving holiday. However, the flowers were gorgeous, red and white roses for the altar, and golden roses for St. Agatha (it was my last = Sunday on altar guild for the year).   The lay reader who was learning Form III, Prayers of the People, insisted = on singing it today. I intended only to do a congregational "choir practice" before church, and have him practice some more and sing it during Advent. We had visitors who were interested in the organ, and I delayed the = prelude a few minutes to show it to them. I did the prelude, and no lay reader or acolyte could be found. The priest decided he wanted to practice the lay reader's part and ran up to the front of the church, bellowing the part without a tone or cue. He cannot carry a tune in a bucket and is almost totally deaf. The lay reader finally appeared and we practiced. But then the acolytes who had been absent had not lit any candles, so we had to = hold up the procession for the candles.   The POP was extremely pitiful, and the only saving grace was that the air was so thick with incense the people were too busy coughing to pay = attention to the cantor. The priest felt he had to preach another sermon during the announcements, this time about how wonderful Harry Potter was (I cannot remember the subject of the first sermon - I have blocked it out of my = mind for the good of mankind). There were bells at the right places today, but they were barely audible.   Then at communion the same lay reader spilled what was easily 1/4 of the communion wine right down the front of my surplice. I didn't manage to drink any, however. I just said, "thank you," and made my way back to the organ, tore off the surplice and started playing.   I hardly had the heart for the Crown Imperial after all that - it was a blur. I felt we were all poster children for birth control today. = Perhaps Advent will be better, and in any case, it's only four weeks, right? The altar is bare, the festal frontal is folded away, and we're ready.   Three years ago this Sunday evening I was playing for Evening Prayer at Christ Church, Pensacola, filling in for Ken and his assistant who were attending a choir party. I remember listening to one of the best sermons from a most unlikely source, so when I heard the Gospel this morning it transported me back to that pleasant time.   Regards to all from sunny and warm Florida,   Glenda Sutton (who is putting ads in the classifieds for someone to = decorate the tree from hell)

(back) Subject: Todd Wilson Plays Severance Hall From: "Mike Gettelman" <mike3247@earthlink.net> Date: Sun, 25 Nov 2001 21:38:48 -0500   My organic weekend culminated today at Severance Hall with Todd Wilson playing an improvised accompaniment to the silent movie "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" starring Lon Chaney. Todd seems to have great fun performing to silent movies, and this picture gives a great variety of opportunities to exploit the tonal colors of the big symphonic instrument. It was a joy to hear and to watch. As an added bonus, Todd performed 3 works as a prelude to the showing of the movie, and these were the highlight for me. He began with Vierne's "Carillon de Westminster". Just by coincidence, I heard this piece performed on a 2 man Rodgers last night at a local church recital. Trying to put a comparison into words is not possible. Let me just say that they were very different, and that the Skinner won. Todd's second piece was Vierne's "Clair de Lune" which like the "Carillon" is part of "Pi=E9ces de Fantaisie". This is a very beautiful movement that made me fall in love with the Norton Memorial Organ all over again. Every new piece of literature I hear on this organ brings forth voices and combinations I haven't heard before, despite this being my fifth organ concert at Severance. The final preliminary work Todd played was Pierre Cochereau's "Bol=E9ro de concert". He was accompanied on the snare drum by percussionist Feza Sweifel, who gave just the right touch of rhythmic foundation that a Bolero requires. The interaction of the organ with the controlled and repetitious Bolero beat was spectacular. The use of dissonant phrases that resolve into more familiar major and minor chords is a breathtaking sensation like being on a roller coaster. This piece was the highlight of the concert for me. Todd told us it was the first time he had performed the piece, and that he too, liked it very much. As usual at a Severance organ concert, there was a preconcert organ demonstration program. I appreciate this chance to hear these samples of organ sound before every concert because they give me a chance to compare what I have learned about organ ranks and pipe voices between each concert. So there you have my impressions of my latest concert experience. I know most of you know the information I have given about the pieces I heard, so kindly indulge me if I have bored you, but the fact is, these reviews serve me as a kind of educational record of my experience. My next chance to hear this organ will be in January with John Weaver at the console. I am sure that will be another wonderful experience, and am am feeling very lucky to have this fine instrument virtually in my back yard.   Cheers Mike

Definitely interested in pictures and a list of all >you got. Where >was the organ from? You lucky dawg!!! ;-)     Greetings Bruce, and Happy Holidays.   The Jardine pipes are from the Most Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church on Montrose Avenue in Brooklyn, NY. I will scan in some things in the next few days, and get a list to you of what I have. I only have pipes, and some swell shade arms and pins. No console, chests, etc. I do have a picture of the original installation and some other things sent to me. It was quite a nice three manual with Barker tracker assist. I'm really fond of the pipe work, although I haven't heard it in ensemble yet. Only on single ranks. The doppelflute and clarabella are quite neat, so are the diapasons. There is a dolce, two dulcianas, bell gambas, oboe, clarinet, and some others that slip my mind now. THe geigen diapason is quite the interesting stop. The diapasons are mostly polished with the roman face style, a nice appearance. All pipes are quite filthy at the moment, since they've been sitting idle from the time the "Electrotone" (? not familiar) organ was installed to when they were removed in the 70's, sat, and were recovered in 2000. I'm missing a few things still, but have a nice collection of about 24 ranks, 3 are reeds. I'll get that to you soon, thanks for your interest. If you know anywhere else where I can get more detailed information on these Jardines, let me know.   Chris Malocheski
