So thinking of Elvis's mother as a way of combining mother Mary with Elvis.... Hmmm... The mind boggles.   I just hope no one is going to sing the hymn "O Worship the King" this Sunday....   I trust some good preacher out there will seize the opportunity of talking about how for some many unfortunate folks Elvis has replaced Jesus in their hearts. One King for another. The whole thing about sightings of Elvis--it's a replay of the post-Easter sightings of Our Lord. Like Marx said, history repeats itself--the first time as tragedy, the second as farce.   But as Dennis Steckley says, Mr. Presley, despite his suicidal lifestyle, "was... a person of deep faith. His work was rooted in gospel music, and h= e never really left that music behind." It was also rooted in African American culture, and he did much to bring the races together.   By the way again, I've been thinking, isn't the Dupr=E9 of the Magnificat and the other peaces in that collection (Ave Maris Stella, "I am black but comely," etc.) so much more beautiful and lyrical than the rest of his output? =20     Randy Runyon Music Director Zion Lutheran Church Hamilton, Ohio runyonr@muohio.edu

The eyes, the lips, the hair, the movements, the mannerisms------all of it the ultimate sexy come-on, including the very romantic loving, caring, look too. The clothes are the costume of a romantic swashbuckler, big white sleeves, the high collar of a royal prince 300 yrs. ago, the cape.   But he wasn't. No wife, no steady girlfriends. Millions of girls adored him, and he looked right back at them with invitation and that smile------but he didn't take them home. There don't even seem to be any "illegitimate" children, or women trying to claim one for the money. He never married until he was about 40, if I recall correctly. And then there were a whole lot of articles about a scandal and him being trapped or forced into it somehow, and it was a girl in Germany.   Interesting, no?   Ah, I probably missed a lot, I liked him, but I never idolized him, so I don't have all the "facts" researched and memorized. At least he made mostly cheerful movies. Way too many horror ones now.   Diane S.

(back) Subject: Weddings, cyphers and strange stop lists From: "Stephen Barker" <steve@ststephenscanterbury.freeserve.co.uk> Date: Fri, 16 Aug 2002 20:18:27 +0100   Dear list,   Bit of a disaster today... playing a wedding in the crypt of Canterbury Cathedral and got a cipher on the Open Diapason while playing before the service. Couldn't fix it so had to play the whole service on the piano!   Anyway, it's the first time I've really played that organ (I was brought = in as a temp, I'm not the regular cathedral organist!!) and it struck me as a rather strange organ specification. It's an extension organ built on five ranks which are:   Open Diapason (A) Stopped Diapason (B) Mixture (C) Tierce (D) Fagotto (E)   and distributed over the 2 manuals and pedals as follows (everything enclosed)   Manual I   Stopped Diapason 8' (B) Principal 4' (A) Nazard 2 2/3' (B) Super Octave (A) Tierce 1 3/5 (D) Mixture II 19.22 (C)   Manual II   Open Diapason 8' (A) Stopped Diapason 8' (B) Flute 4' (B) Quartane II 12.15 (C)   Pedal   Bourdon 16' (B) Principal 8' (A) Flute 8' (B) Octave 4' (A) Sext II 12.17 (BD) Fagotto 16' (E)   What bothered me about this was that I couldn't get a Diapason chorus without coupling the manuals, not even 8' and 4' on the same manual. I = also wondered why there was the need for the pedal reed when there are no other reeds on the organ... I didn't get a chance to see how it balanced without it and with it unfortunately!   What do others think of this? has anyone come across anything similar?   Steve, Canterbury, UK
