For any others of you who are Vicar of Dibley fans....the BBC does put these out on video- I got two at the local Suncoast store. The little old lady organist and the dancing choir director are certainly amusing.       Christmas Blessings, Beau Surratt, Organist St. Peter's UCC, Elmhurst,IL Organ Performance Major, Northern Illinois University, DeKalb,IL     -----Original Message----- From: "Judy A.

Recently I reconstructed it from memory into a MIDI file. (Topical .... -now I could feed it into the organ ...... grin) Ed, in Maine
