Antiphon V - Si ego Dominus (If I your Lord and your Master have washed your feet) Antiphon VI - In hoc cognoscent (By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples) Antiphon VII - Maneant in vobis (Let there abide in you faith, hope and charity) Hymn - Ubi caritas (Where charity and love are found)   The last three items -- Antiphons VI, VII and Ubi caritas -- are important historically, as they are ancient Greek agape chants that came over into the Latin liturgy. As with the Good Friday Trisagion, the Latin text fits the music somewhat awkwardly, because the text was originally Greek.   For those who have never seen the ceremony, the priest removes his vestments, and, clad only in an alb and an apron or towel, kneels before twelve (poor) men, pours water over their feet, washes them, dries them with a towel, and (in some places, according to ancient custom) kisses their feet. He then gives each a coin. I have read an interpretation that the coin is to remind them of Judas and the thirty pieces of silver, so that they will not betray Our Lord as Judas did.   In some churches, the foot-washing is extended to the entire congregation, or at least as many as want to take part.   The Mandatum, along with Creeping to the Cross on Good Friday, is one of the most moving ceremonies in Holy Week.   A shameless plug: I have set the entire foot-washing music with English texts adapted to the original melodies, in modern notation with organ accompaniment (the organ may be played SOFTLY after the Gloria in excelsis, if NECESSARY, to sustain the chant) ... to my knowledge, this has never been done before. They are available as PDFs or Sibelius files.   Cheers,   Bud

How many of you are in churches that have switched to the Revised Commmon Lectionary, and have you found it easier or harder to match up/select hymns and prelude/postlude music for the RCL?   We're still with the prayer book selections, so I was curious in case the decision was made to change here.   Glenda Sutton            
(back) Subject: Mozart organ stuff From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@access.aic-fl.com> Date: Wed, 16 Jan 2002 18:20:32 -0600   Someone in the last month or so mentioned the little Andante movement from a Sonata in E flat found in Biggs' Treasury of Shorter Organ Music (pub. Mercury) attributed to Mozart. I had forgotten all about that number and was looking at it this week when pulling out all the Mozart I had to decide what I want to do.   My question: are the "grace notes" to be played as on a piano, or as we have been taught to treat them in organ music? I didn't know the rules for Mozart, but thought someone in the past told me to actually treat these as grace notes. (I haven't piddled with the Fantaisie in a very long time, and suffer from selective memory.) Inquiring minds want to know, and Mozart himself did not respond to my query.   Glenda Sutton (diligently working on her Mozart piano sonatas)

(back) Subject: RCL and organ music From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Wed, 16 Jan 2002 17:18:26 -0800   I pay attention to the Lectionary (we use the old one-year one, thank GOODNESS ... I can't IMAGINE having to find anthems and organ music for a THREE-year cycle) from Advent Sunday through Corpus Christi (Trinity I, for you low-church folks); from Trinity II until Sunday Next Before Advent, I don't, except for the Sunday of the Patronal Festival in September and the Sunday in the Octave of All Saints' Day. We keep Sunday Next as Christ the King, sorta.   I have noted in my Kalendar *some* anthems that are for various Sundays after Trinity, and they're filed that way in the library. But the choir usually goes on vacation before we hit those Sundays ... maybe not this year, since Easter is early.   Same with the hymns: we sing the seasonal ones Advent-Corpus Christi, then I hit the "moldy oldies" list. I HAVE a moldy oldies list, to be SURE we hit them ALL at LEAST once June-July-August; then I behave reasonably well Sept-Oct-Nov (grin). I save the BEST moldy oldies for August, when the Rector's away (grin).   Organ music? naaah ... five-minute prelude and 16-bar improvised postlude and that's IT. No time, no energy, no decent organ.   Cheers,   Bud, whose job is 90% Choirmaster and 10% Organist

I tried twice to unsubscribe from pipechat - = and thought I had accomlished that, but found today that I have 134 = messges between pipechat and PIPORG - which Ben Chi said he had personally = unsubscribed me for the month I'll be away. Obviously I did something = wrong. If you have a minute to put me in standby mode, I'd appreciate it = as I am going to cyber cafes where the music is not my favorite organ = music and I'd love not to have to stay in one of these places too long. = Would hate to think what it would do to me in a time. Hope you're doing well. All best, BobMac36@aol.com
