Historically our courts have been loathe to involve themselves in internecine church fights.   For instance, a church CAN hire only married, male Anglicans, or unmarried female blondes, or whatever ... THOSE discrimination laws don't apply.   CANON law gives him absolute power over the hiring and firing of = musicians.   The FEDERAL Americans With Disabilities Act stops at the church door, for reasons for church-state separation issues; however, the STATE can = establish stricter laws, and California has. But I am not eligible for state disability or unemployment insurance, since churches are exempt from = paying into those funds.   If they DO fire me, of COURSE I will pursue all available legal remedies, but that would take several years at best, and I would have to live on Welfare in the meantime.   Bud       Bob Elms wrote:   > Under Australian Industrial law to fire anyone because of their illness > would leave the boss open for a law suit which he would almost certainly > lose with a financial penalty of considerable size.

This is how I pay my bills and support my wife and three children. Gratis just don't cut it any more.   Sorry to sound so hardened, but it's the only way I can keep my sanity.   tjh

I and I'm sure most on this list, if not all, support you fully.

(back) Subject: Re: organists as church members(juggling hymnals?) From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Tue, 23 Oct 2001 13:39:01 EDT   Hi Harry and list:   To keep from juggling hymnals and organ music, I make up a service play book from week to week. I'm sure that there are set pieces done every Sunday, they go into the book first. (I use plastic page slips) Next I insert the new hymns for the Sunday all in order. Preludes, Incidental Music, and Postludes go in last. I scan this stuff on my computer and resize it for my convenience. it's all in one place, page after page in proper order. Any solo music goes in it's correct place to. So I just turn from one page to the next. Wind can't blow the pages askew because the plastic inserts are very stable, I feel calm, cool, and collected knowing that I've eliminated most of the things that can go wrong. Also just in case the priest or minister drops in a last minute request, I have a hymnal on the bench to flip to quickly. :) All bases covered for the home run. I use old PC address sticky labels for hymn numbers. and any registrational needs. If you've ever played St. Patrick's Breast Plate You can see the wisdom of all this organization before hand. It just saves my nerves and wear and tear.   Regards,   Ron Severin

Maybe you can't sing the hymns, but neither could anyone else without the accompaniment. And you may not sing the liturgy with your mouth, but your fingers do the "talking" for = you.   It can be a lot of work to stay on top of a typical church service. Like you, there are times when I feel physically exhausted. But still and all, I've been in God's house and given a sacrifice of Praise to him.   But then too, it's always nice to sit in the pew and be part of that = group. That's one reason why I go to the monthly evensong at a church near here.   D    
(back) Subject: Re: Organ Recordings Question... From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Tue, 23 Oct 2001 14:23:47 EDT   Hi Josh and List:   OHS has tons of recordings of organs with temperments of all types. One of the best bargains are the CD's of the Organa Antiqua Bohemica, if they still have some copies. The organs are positively silvery, and beautiful. They are presented on the bargain table. They have a bargain table that will crash your wallet quickly, so pick and chose carefully. Once you really appreciate key color in temperments, you'll wonder who the monster was that recommended EQUAL. Well Temper is the only way to go! I use Kellner or Tartini Valloti every Sunday.   Regards,   Ron Severin
