(back) Subject: unison propers (X-posted) From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Thu, 25 Apr 2002 08:28:10 -0700   The promised unison propers with organ won't be forthcoming, at least not immediately. They're being WRITTEN, but I'm RACING to finish them through the month of August before the chaos of moving to the new church descends, so I can take a VACATION in July (what a NOVEL idea!). Maybe after that I should jump to the Advent-Christmas-Epiphany cycle, so that those who want them can have them AHEAD of time (grin).   My choir asked me last night if I was stressed out ... guess it shows (chuckle).   Cheers,   Bud    
(back) Subject: Joan Lippincott Sizzles at St. Ignatius - 4/10/02 From: "Malcolm Wechsler" <manderusa@earthlink.net> Date: Thu, 25 Apr 2002 16:08:47 -0400   Joan Lippincott has been sprinkling great chunks of Bach around a grateful New York this year, and at St. Ignatius Loyola, on Wednesday, April 10th, she played her sixth concert in this noble series called Bach in the Big Apple. The program shows a website for the series, which includes pictures and stoplists of all the organs used. Someone who apparently knows as much about computer processes as I (not much!), did something very strange to the dimensions of the picture of the organ at St. Ignatius Loyola. It has been badly crunched or crushed, and we are not amused!! If it sounded like it looks in that picture, the scales would all be quite enormous! The site is at < www.bachinthebigapple.com >. One crunched Mander notwithstanding, the whole enterprise is pretty amazing, as is the organist doing it all. Early on (whenever that is, but probably the 60s), I thought of Joan as immersed in the Baroque repertoire, playing within the doctrinaire aesthetic of the time. Within that context, her playing was tremendously vital. Sometime in the early 90s, she became Chapel Organist at Princeton, playing that enormous, rather English, Romantic instrument in a newly created spacious acoustic, and she began to explore or revisit the big Romantic works. I heard her in a concert sponsored in the U. Chapel by Westminster Choir College, and it was stunning. If I am on thin ice about any of this history, someone will let me know. Reticence is not an organ list characteristic. I considered the playing I heard at this concert to be a sort of fusion, to me, immensely satisfying. "Gemuetlich" came to mind. Anyway, on to the program:   The first work was called Prelude, Largo, and Fugue in C major, S. 545. "What on earth might that be," I said, but not ever attending a Bach recital or one with lots of Bach without my trusty Keller, I soon knew. I had played this very Prelude and Fugue in C, and now learned on the spot that this work actually appeared in two sources, in one of which, the Largo from the 5th Trio Sonata is interpolated as a middle movement. Keller also quotes the quirky Straube as saying that the organist should "seek in his registration the magnificence and splendor of the Meistersinger orchestra." (!) The Prelude was big and bold as played and registered - Wagnerian? Perhaps! The registration of the trio was not shy, underpinned by a big eight foot line. The registration of the Fugue was solid with lots of reeds, and taken at a very good pace.   Fantasia in C Minor (562) - a wonderfully solemn work, played on an interesting reed and Tierce sort of registration.   Toccata and Fugue in F (540) As I settled into listening to this wonderful, soaring piece I have always loved, I had a really dumb fantasy. I was looking at the program just before Joan began the Toccata, noting the presence of The Wedge, and of the Passacaglia, and I thought to myself: "Gee, she has been playing lots of concerts around The City, but has saved all the best things for us!" Then, reality set in, and one after another, incredible Bach works lined up in my mental queue, and one was reminded yet again of the astonishing creative energy of the Great Cantor of Leipzig and points south! And on that note, be aware that on May 12th, you can hear Joan play the six Trio Sonatas at St. Thomas, Fifth Avenue, on the Taylor and Boody upstairs. Fantasy over, and back to here and now. The Toccata was taken at a really good clip, a truly "driven" performance on a big sound replete with reeds. The glorious Fugue continued in the same spirit.   Prelude and Fugue in E Minor (548) The Wedge. I love how Joan floats or hovers over the keyboard, almost as though delivering some sort of incantation! It is all so strong and sure, and we had an amazing, full blooded, visceral, performance of this remarkable piece. A big, full registration remained throughout, and that seemed to fit the nature of the performance just fine, and I found myself loving the relentlessness of it.   Komm, heiliger Geist, herre Gott (652) An intricate and gentle cushion between two immense works, this was given a lovely smooth Diapason accompaniment and a brash Tierce cantus. There is a wonderful Halleluia trio flourish at the end, very like a Buxtehude ending.   Passacaglia and Fugue in C Minor (582) We began with a wonderfully gentle, clear and bright registration. There were occasional changes of manual here and there. The Fugue built to a magnificent and exciting end. Did I hear a box opening? Not sure! Don't care!   Thanks to Bach in the Big Apple, to Kent Tritle and St. Ignatius, and to the extraordinary master of the Organ that is Joan Lippincott. This was a most special event, and I hummed and glowed all the way home, and will always remember the spirit and sounds of this great evening.   Cheers,   Malcolm Wechsler www.mander-organs.com

He (Mr. Bowyer) tells me "It was a recording made for broadcast only, so ws not released on CD". He tells me too, perhaps I can find this recording with Mr. Douglas Carrington, 84 Park View Road, Lytham St. Annes, Lancashire FY8 4JF. Please, can someone in England.... to discover his call number or e-mail? Thanks, Domitila Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

(back) Subject: 3 CDs I recommend . . . From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@access.aic-fl.com> Date: Thu, 25 Apr 2002 19:05:53 -0500   I've recently received three recordings to add to my collection, and wanted to tout them, all organ related:   Massimo Nosetti's 2001 volume (No. 2) of "L'Orgue de Concert" is chock-full of interesting music performed at the historic organ de la Collegiale Sant' Ambrogio d'Alassio, a neat-looking 2-manual and 12-note pedal instrument of maybe 40 stops (I'm an attorney, so can't count) dating from 1855 and restored in 1992-96 by Zanin from Codroipo. Massimo chose music by Anonymous (would like to meet that guy), Torelli, Stanley, Zingoni, Balbastre, Kuchar, Knect, Morandi, Lefebure-Wely and Yon. This is truly an enjoyable CD by Syrius, SYR 141363. Some of Massimo's recordings are available through OHS - I did not do a search for this one.   The other day I decided to renew my aural acquaintance with Kathleen Battle, so bought a CD entitled "Grace", Sony SK 62035, recorded in 1995 and released in 1997. What was interesting about this, other than her rendition of favorite lollipops, was that it was recorded at St. George Episcopal Church, Stuyvesant Square, New York City; however, she posed for the back cover at Riverside. Anthony Newman provided accompaniment on organ and harpsichord, and others joined in, including Nancy Allen, harp, and the American Boychoir. I enjoyed this CD, but it has paled considerably once I heard the following one.   I walked into my office at the Shalimar Courthouse the other day, to hear the secretary listening to some fabulous music of the Handel genre but unfamiliar to me. Shocked that this cute kid who loves rollerblading and kickboxing would be listening to such refined music, I asked what it was. Well, she presented me with a copy of Handel's Dixit Dominus, Nisi Dominus, and Salve Regina, done by the Westminster Abbey choir and orchestra with Simon Preston: joined by Arleen Auger and Lynne Dawson, sopranos; Diana Montague, contralto; Leigh Nixon and John Mark Ainsley, tenors; Simon Birchall, bass; Roy Goodman and Pavlo Beznosiuk, violins; Angela East, violoncello; Harry Bickett and Simon Preston, organ. It was recorded in 1987 by Polydor International. Now this is what I call singing - I was thoroughly entranced, and am loathe to remove it from the CD player in my car. I cannot think of a single CD in my collection with which to repay her.   One CD I cannot recommend, and is not organ-related, is Alicia Keys' "Songs in A minor", a gift from my goddaughter. She apparently is enthralled by this "concert pianist" hip-hop singer (who, like Lucia, can play the first movement of the Moonlight Sonata but little else). I was not, and have truly felt old: I (who have been exposed to the best hip-hop of the last two years from my middle-aged-crisis husband)inwardly raged that parents would let their beautiful impressionable children listen to such drivel. However, I cannot say that to the child, so will acknowledge the gift and slip it somewhere safe where I hope to never find it again. (This is the same child who bought me a Barbie doll for my birthday a couple years ago - I think I disappointed her by keeping it and not giving it to her.)   Cheers,   Glenda Sutton
