I don't =   want this to be a Bible lesson, but Bruce questioned where clapping is mentioned in the Bible and how it is a command.   Well, just off the top of my head, comes Psalm 47:1 "Clap your hands, all = you nations, shout to God with cries of joy." (this and all other quotes from =   the New International Version)   Psalm 98:8 "Let the rivers clap their hand, let the mountains sing = together for joy"   Isaiah 55:12 "You will go out with job and be led forth in peace, the moutains and the hills with burst into song before you, and all the trees will clap their hands"   If all the things on earth are clapping their hands, I just think that = it's probably alright for humans to clap, also, when the spirit leads. To = quote Paul, in his letter to the Corinithians, (ICorinthians 14:39-40) = "Therefore my bothers, be eager to prophesy and do not forbid speaking in tongues. = But everything should be done in a fitting and orderly way."   This last line seems to sum it up for me...order. When people clap just = to applaud someone who has done something in the service, it just seems to = add confusion. When clapping is done in praise to God, to me, it never seems = to be a distraction. Some people can be so vehemently opposed to things that they can't see = past their arguments.   Let me end this little sermonette with a quote from the great writer C. = S. Lewis from his writing "On Church Music": "There are two musical = situations on which I think we can be confident that a blessing rests. One is where = a priest or an organist, himself a man of trained and delicate taste, humbly =   and charitably sacrifices his own (aesthetically right) desires and gives = the people humbler and coarser fare than he would wish, in a belief (even, as = it may be, the erroneous belief) that he can thus bring them to God. The = other is where the stupid and unmusical layman humbly and patiently, and above = all silently, listens to music which he cannont, or cannot fully, appreciate, = in the belief that it somehow glorifies God, and that if it does not edify = him this must be his own defect. Neither such a High Brow nor such a Low Brow =   can be far out of the way. to both, Church Music will have been a means = of grace; not the music that they have liked, but the music they have = disliked. They have both offered, sacrificed, their taste in the fullest sense."   I don't expect responses, I just offer this as a challenge for all of us = who work in churches. Just something to ponder for a while..........     Monty Bennett

I used to belong to a Lutheran church that had a big A-S organ. Whenever we sang "A Mighty Fortress" and got to that line, "And those this world with devils filled" (or whatever it is), the organist filled the sanctuary with the sounds of swirling demons. VERY effective!   I keep wanting to know if you also "Kneel by the Bay"?! ;>)   Dennis Steckley   Ich liebe meine Katzen   -----Original Message----- For postlude, I improvised a fugue on "Diadem" (All Hail the Power) that turned out half-way decent (both times). So, I guess I did alright.   Our opening hymn was "Rock of Ages" (Toplady), not usually a rousing opener (grin). And so, I didn't do it rousingly...at least not at first. The   third stanza speaks along the lines of coming into God's presence naked and without trappings...So, I played that verse just on unison pitches on the 8' principal. The final stanza talks about death during the first 2 lines, so I played those lines softly. Then used the crescendo pedal to "soar to worlds unknown" and then finished the stanza full organ. Whether any of the congregants got what I did will probably never be known (grin).   Peace to you all. It's hot again at the Jersey Shore.   Neil by the Bay

I regret that this sensitivity was interpreted as condescension. There is no relationship between the two companies, a fact that many do not understand or recognize.   Del W.

Wind pressure could be a factor, but scaling and voicing are important, too.   >don't understand what scale is.   Scale is the diameter, or horizontal dimension, of a pipe. Of course, the diameter of all pipework decreases as the length decreases, but given pipes of the same pitch in various ranks, they will have various scales: the strings will be the thinnest, the principals/diapasons in the middle, and the open flutes the fattest. Other elements in the design and voicing of a pipe control the tone quality, as well. In a large building, the scaling must = be more generous than in a small building.   Another consideration related to scaling is the halving ratio, generally expressed as a single number. This number is the number of pipes or semitones upward that you must count in order to get a pipe half as wide = as the one you start with. A halving ratio of 12 (someone please correct me = if I'm off by one here) would mean that if you compare the pipe speaking = middle C with the pipe one octave higher, the higher pipe would be half as wide = (as well as half as long). However, such a quick halving ratio is *never* = used, because it would leave the treble end way too weak and thin. Ratios such = as 17,19, or 21 are commoner; and the halving ratio might even vary in different parts of the compass. Refinements like = this, best settled upon when the acoustical properties of the destination room = are well known, require a great deal of skill, not to say artistry, from the builder in advance, because when a rank of pipes has been built according to these specifications, we must either live with it or scrap it.   Scale itself is expressed as a number, such as 55. I probably used to = know how that number is derived, but have long forgotten. Who would like to enlighten me on this?

Please = remember that these are MY opinions, so hopefully my flame-retardant PJ's will not be necessary.   I like the look of a drawknob console - to me, it embodies a 'classic' = organ console. I also find them much easier to play, when changing registrations on the fly. With = drawknobs, I don't have to reach as far to be able to change registrations. With stop tabs, it is not = as easy for my short chubby fingers to accurately add or remove the stops I want (i.e. adding a = soft 4ft flute instead of the loud Trompette on a soft, contemplative hymn).   I have recently changed wards in my church (LDS), and count myself = fortunate to have a drawknob console on the organ in my new ward (both wards have organs by one of the = electronic makers so recently discussed on the list). The drawknobs are a bit mushy (there is = no tactile setting into place when they are drawn), but I can deal with that.   David Carter In HOT Sacramento (100+ all the rest of the week)   __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?

(back) Subject: Handel's Messiah - Organ Accompaniment From: "David Carter" <davidorganist2002@yahoo.com> Date: Tue, 13 Aug 2002 12:34:48 -0700 (PDT)   Dear Pipechatters -   This thread brings to mind one of the 'defining' moments in my exposure to = the organ, and organ playing. I had taken a group organ class at the Community College I was = attending, just to find a different class to take (I had previously studied piano for many years). = The teacher (her name was Lou Matthews, from the Carmel Valley area) invited me to turn pages (she = used the Schirmer organ score) for her during a performance of Parts 2 & 3 of Messiah. It was a = wonderful experience to be in the middle of all that music making. During one of the performances, = the score started to fall from the music rack, so I spent all of 'The Trumpet Shall Sound' holding = up the entire score to keep it from falling and causing a major train wreck, so to speak.   This experience further solidified my desire to learn more of the organ, = and also developed in me a love of Handel's Messiah. I hope someday to be able to teach a choir = this piece, and to perform it with either an orchestra, or simply with a good organ.   David Carter   __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
