The (presumably) 1911 original version, simply and beautifully arranged with each of the four verses differently set is, in my book, the most moving of them all. (see http://www.stainer.co.uk/darke.html )   Another must is the Gounod setting of the poem 'Nazareth' which I always = use for Christmas morning pre-service music. And you can't beat 'God Rest ye Merry Gentlemen' followed by 'We wish you a Merry Christmas' to close.   Bruce Miles     website - http://www.gbmuk.fsnet.co.uk/index.html ----- Original Message ----- From: "First Christian Church of Casey, Illinois" <kzrev@rr1.net> To: <pipechat@pipechat.org> Sent: Wednesday, December 18, 2002 4:04 PM Subject: RE: PipeChat Digest #3306 - 12/18/02     > Not familiar with that tune........only Holst's, which I find very > moving to that text. > > Dennis Steckley > > Ich liebe meine Katzen > > -----Original Message----- > Subject: As I was trying to say....that time of year > From: "Colin Mitchell" <cmys13085@yahoo.co.uk> > Hello, > > I was driving to work in the auto with Classic FM pouring forth its > musical offerings, when for the first time this season, I heard "In the > bleak mid Winter" to the Harold Darke tune........choir of King's > College. > > What is it about this carol and that tune especially? > > > > > "Pipe Up and Be Heard!" > PipeChat: A discussion List for pipe/digital organs & related topics > HOMEPAGE : http://www.pipechat.org > List: mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org > Administration: mailto:admin@pipechat.org > Subscribe/Unsubscribe: mailto:requests@pipechat.org > >

Also the temp. should be pretty much =   constant. On our home piano, a 25 year old Yamaha baby grand, when there is a change in atmospheric conditions, the piano can sound pretty bad for up to a week, but I wouldn't say the tuning is so much the problem, as the =   tone, and sometimes the action.   I have come across several Yamahas over the years, that have tuning problems, in most cases, just a certain area of the keyboard. I would say =   that would be a function of the pin-block not holding the tuning pin properly. This makes one very frustrated. I suppose some of these problems sometimes happen through abuse or neglect, but I think that because so much of it has to do with wood, just natural variation can produce some bad pianos, or certain areas that are bad.   As to good electronic pianos, you should try the new GeneralMusic. From what I have heard, the sound is excellent, and the keyboard action is also =   very good. The technology used is sampling, but also physical modelling. GeneralMusic headoffice is in Bensonville, Illnois, very near to O'Hare airport. Another electronic piano I played in the summer that caught my fancy, was from Kawai, very simple, basically only a piano = sound, not much else, but a pleasant sound, even after several return visits to play it. Nice action too, and priced quite low. Others I tried at the Canadian Music Trade Show were Roland, Yamaha, Samick, Kurzweill, but they =   sounded to my ear like speaker pianos, I just didn't like them, even = briefly.   It is too bad that you are having so many problems with the Yamaha, as generally they are decent pianos, and the tuning is solid.   Arie V.     >"Pipe Up and Be Heard!" >PipeChat: A discussion List for pipe/digital organs & related topics >HOMEPAGE : http://www.pipechat.org >List: mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org >Administration: mailto:admin@pipechat.org >Subscribe/Unsubscribe: mailto:requests@pipechat.org

That is a piece that was improvised or performed extemporaneously. Until the nineteenth century in most countries, and in France largely still today, organists were expected to improvise a = voluntary in various places during the services, including improvising a fugue at = the end. (How many could do THAT today?) The opposite of a voluntary was a composition, or piece that was written down. Compositions were usually performed at recitals on special occasions such as the dedication of a new organ, but not normally during services. The reason why books of voluntaries first came to be written down -- which in England generally started happening about the middle of the eighteenth century -- was for = the benefit of "beginners at the organ" who were not yet capable of = improvising their own voluntaries.   Jeremiah Clarke's "Trumpet Voluntary" was in fact only nicknamed that in = the twentieth century. Its original title was "The Prince of Denmark's March" (the Prince of Denmark being Queen Anne's husband). It was probably originally an instrumental piece for a ceremonial occasion(perhaps for organ, brass and percussion), but was handed down as a harpsichord arrangement in a collection of "Choice Pieces for the Harpsichord" posthumously published after Clarke's death.   John Speller

Upon taking my camera equipment home and examining it I was startled to find how QUICKLY the optics became coated by the smoke and whatever it is that's in the incense. It took a long time and a lot of careful work to clean up the lenses and camera bodies, but, it was worth it when the film came back from the lab. All I can say is that whatever it is that's present in the incense that churches burn, that stuff is tenacious.   Marika   Richard Schneider wrote:   >Actually: I would be interested in knowing if anyone may know of >detrimental effects of Incense to pipe metal?

So far, I stuck to the standard classical literature with lots of Bach and that has gone well. For this coming Sunday (12/22), I would like to play a few Christmas carols for the prelude and want to make sure that these are acceptable in their tradition. Does anyone on the list play for a Christian Scientist Church and would they be so kind as to shed a little information my way.       ------=3D_NextPart_000_0001_01C2A793.4F8EE0B0 Content-Type: text/html; charset=3D"us-ascii" Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable   <html>   <head> <META HTTP-EQUIV=3D3D"Content-Type" CONTENT=3D3D"text/html; =3D charset=3D3Dus-ascii">     <meta name=3D3DGenerator content=3D3D"Microsoft Word 10 (filtered)">   <style> <!-- /* Style Definitions */ p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal {margin:0in; margin-bottom:.0001pt; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} a:link, span.MsoHyperlink {color:blue; text-decoration:underline;} a:visited, span.MsoHyperlinkFollowed {color:purple; text-decoration:underline;} span.EmailStyle17 {font-family:Arial; color:windowtext;} @page Section1 {size:8.5in 11.0in; margin:1.0in 1.25in 1.0in 1.25in;} div.Section1 {page:Section1;} --> </style>   </head>   <body lang=3D3DEN-US link=3D3Dblue vlink=3D3Dpurple>   <div class=3D3DSection1>   <p class=3D3DMsoNormal><font size=3D3D2 face=3D3DArial><span =3D style=3D3D'font-size:10.0pt; font-family:Arial'>I have been a regular substitute at a Christian =3D Scientist church and not having been exposed to their liturgy in the past am =3D concerned that I not offend the congregation with me selection of songs. &nbsp;So = =3D far, I stuck to the standard classical literature with lots of Bach and that has gone = =3D well.&nbsp; For this coming Sunday (12/22), I would like to play a few Christmas =3D carols for the prelude and want to make sure that these are acceptable in their =3D tradition. &nbsp;Does anyone on the list play for a Christian Scientist Church and = =3D would they be so kind as to shed a little information my way.</span></font></p>   <p class=3D3DMsoNormal><font size=3D3D2 face=3D3DArial><span =3D style=3D3D'font-size:10.0pt; font-family:Arial'>&nbsp;</span></font></p>   </div>   </body>   </html>   ------=3D_NextPart_000_0001_01C2A793.4F8EE0B0--    
(back) Subject: Stop Motor help From: "Jeff White" <reedstop@prodigy.net> Date: Thu, 19 Dec 2002 22:59:36 -0600   My home church has a 1976 Schlicker with slider chests. The stop motors that move the sliders are kinda oblong/round, with a lever on top that rotates to move the slider. Tonight, the 8' Principal in the Great, and then the 4' Octave decided not to work. The organist got the 8' going = again by moving the lever (and thus freeing it up), but the 4' was more = stubborn.   I thought I heard that these particular motors are obsolete. Can anyone tell me if this is so, and are you familiar with these particular motors, and what can be done? Granted, it could be a wiring issue, as well. This organ has functioned like new for 26 years, and it's just now starting to have some problems, luckily all small, but annoying!!   I played it tonight for the Children's service, and I had to have the 8' = and 4' ON the entire time. No using flutes tonight!! :-)   Thanks for any advice! I'll forward replies on to John, the minister of music there.   Jeff White
