It will be part of a recital I plan to perform here at the First Baptist Church of Henderson on January 26.   I have a recording of the piece that was done to benefit AIDS research...it's an incredibly moving and haunting piece. The score is published by Wayne Leupold (edited by Cherry Rhodes).   I was wondering, has anyone out there performed the piece or heard it performed live? Any words of wisdom?   Thanks!

(back) Subject: NOT about the widgets vs. waldfloetes war (grin) From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Wed, 14 Aug 2002 13:30:39 -0700   Bruce raises what I think is a legitimate question about ALL electronic instruments, not just A****:   WHO DESIGNS THESE THINGS???   Given the freedom to more-or-less do whatever they WANT with relatively little FINANCIAL impact, it MUST be the result of some VERY skewed focus-group marketing research.   That said, of COURSE you're going to pay more for ANY organ with 32's, party horns, multiple celestes, etc. ... BUT, if the stated purpose is to REPRODUCE something (as far as the limitations of present technology will allow), then why all the UNauthentic stuff?   Case in point: in a pipe organ, the voicing of one stop CAN affect the voicing of another stop to a CERY MINOR degree, depending on proximity, type of windchest, etc. ... but pipe organ stops are NOT yoked together, EVER (well, OK, monkey quints, and Ludwigtones ... but how many monkey quints and Ludwigtones have you seen LATELY?). You voice the 8' Principal, then you voice the 8' Chimney Flute, etc. etc. etc.   In older analog electronic organs, it WAS possible to set the LEVEL of each stop individually, EVEN THOUGH the stops were UNIFIED.   That's the first point.   Second point: ORGAN LITERATURE *demands* certain stops in certain places at certain pitches, whether the organ is large or small, electronic or pipe.   The Cromorne needs to be OPPOSITE the Cornet, NOT on the same manual with it (if there's only one Cornet).   The Swell Oboe needs to be at 8', NOT 4', if you want to USE it for anything ... and there needs to BE a Swell Oboe.   One of my PET peeves is 3 and 4 manual electronics with ONE 8' principal ANYWHERE in the manuals. WHY???   If electronics are gonna mimic pipe organs, then ... they should ... (light bulb lights over Macungie, Hillsboro, etc. ... DING!) MIMIC PIPE ORGANS (chuckle).   Cheers,   Bud

(back) Subject: flooding in Europe From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Wed, 14 Aug 2002 15:00:52 -0700   Since most European organs are mounted high on the west tribune, I'd imagine they're relatively safe ... choir organs, on the other hand, are another matter ... although, if memory serves, the disastrous Italian flood some years ago reached to the organ cases high on the walls of Santa Croce in Florence, so who knows? I remember seeing the very visible water-marks on the walls when I was there in '68. Unfortunately THAT organ WASN'T carried off (evil chuckle).   Cheers,   Bud
