RBC   =3D=3D=3D Crypt simply means "the lower church" ... there may or may not be folks actually BURIED down there (grin).   Cheers,   Bud    
(back) Subject: OFF-TOPIC: crypts and Gothic architecture - DELETE IF NOT INTERESTED From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Fri, 16 Aug 2002 13:05:18 -0700   It occurs to me we're not being TERRIBLY helpful with all our super-Anglican terms (chuckle).   This is how it works: when a large Gothic church or cathedral is built, they have to dig WAY down for the foundations, to support all that weight ... so ... there's already a big hole there ANYWAY (grin). Gothic churches used to take generations to build ... so ... they'd roof over a portion of the hole and create a smaller church where they could have services in the meantime.   Bethlehem Chapel in the crypt of the National Cathedral in Washington DC (the Episcopal Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul, to give it its proper name) is such a chapel ... services were held there for a number of years;   then the Great Choir above (the eastern arm of the cross-shaped upper church) was finished; a temporary wall was built to the west of THAT, and services were held there for MANY years;   I don't recall offhand, but I think the transepts and the crossing (the northern and southern arms of the cross, and the middle) were built next; the wall was moved west, and services were held THERE for many years;   the nave (the body of the church, the long part of the cross) was only opened fairly recently when the cathedral was finally completed.   BURIAL in the crypt of a cathedral was usually limited to the bishops of the diocese, the Canons of the cathedral Chapter, royalty, and major benefactors of the cathedral.   Some cathedrals, notably Chartres, have NO tombs whatsoever; others (Our Lady of Angels in Los Angeles) use the sale of tombs in the crypt to raise money for the building.   So ... "crypt" and "burial place" AREN'T synonymous, necessarily.   Cheers,   Bud

I've never heard of them being used for weddings. = That's all I was making reference to. I find it strange that post-constantinian churches would use a crypt for a wedding. It's not in my experience. It's from Greek meaning hide, hidden.---RBC   ---     The term generally refers to a sanctuary in an undercroft. There's a = large one at the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, for example. Ceilings tend not to be very high....   Peter

From: <cmys13085@blueyonder.co.uk> Date: Fri, 16 Aug 2002 21:41:48 +0100   Hello,   As I understand it, Improvisation is based on a theme....usually = submitted. Extemporisation is "free" in the sense that it derives purely = from the imagination.   Personally, I have good and bad days....very rarely do I Improvise on = themes. However, once I hit upon a good extempore idea, I will develop = it in various ways.....changing from major to minor (or vice versa), = sometimes in imitation, sometimes with very chamnged harmony, sometimes = with the "theme" in an inner part and therefore inaudible but creating a = new counter-subject, changing rhythm, use of dotted notes or longer = notes.....the list is endless.   One thing I always do is contemplate three or four well known = "development" pieces such as the Brahms St.Anthony Choral, the Dupre = "Noel avec variations", silly ideas like Charles Ives "America" etc etc.   ALWAYS I keep in mind Tournemire, who brought astonishing invention to = the organ.....what a fantastic imagination he had!   As for really great improvisers, I rate Gerry Hancock very highly,I = THINK David Hill who was at Gloucester Cathedral in the UK (someone = please correct me if I am wrong) and I listened to Martin Haselbock when = he won at Haarlem.   I also have a fine recording of Dr Walter Schuster improvising (among = other things) at Passau Dom.   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK
