A. Mozart Processional Hymn: O Zion, haste, thy mission high (Tidings) - H 539 Sequence Hymn: Jesus calls us; o'er the tumult (Restoration) - H 550 Offertory Hymn: O Jesus, I have promised (Nyland) - H 655 Music during Communion: Sonata No. 1 in E flat (orig. for strings; trans. for organ) - W. A. Mozart Awake, my soul, stretch every nerve (tune Siroe; text H 546) Closing Hymn: Take my life, and let it be (Hollingside) - H 707 Postlude: could be anything   Music from this week and the last two weeks are in honor of the birthdays of Mozart (January 27) and Clementi (January 23).   Actually, the postlude was "Alla Turca" form Mozart's Sonata in A, but people liked my mystery.   The day was chilly, overcast and icky, but everyone was in sunny spirits. Even the queen bitch was nice to everyone today. I had thought to myself that this was a helluva month to be playing Mozart, because my practice time has evaporated with the new job. But God was gracious, and it all went well.   Yesterday I received a treat in the mail. I had ordered from Lois Fyfe the first two Rheinberger sonatas so long ago I had forgotten about them, and received a Novello volume containing the first three (looks like a facsimile edition, but no stress in reading the notes). I had resolved that this was the year to finish several pieces I started and abandoned in the past, including the Bach "In dur ist freud", the Passacaglia sans Fugue (unless I get bored and greatly inspired), the Boely Fantaisie in B flat, the Gigout Scherzo, the Bossi Scherzo, and a few others of that ilk. I hope that the new job and my stamina allow this.   Went to the new county judge's investiture Friday, and saw many old friends and fellow members of the bar, as well as area judges and politicians. Although I am anti-political and what little politics I possess is the wrong side, it was nice to see the old gang, turncoats as they are. I did get to see all three of the last remaining Democrats in Okaloosa County.   Rick and I got out after lunch today and planted two Bradford pears, a pomegranate and three blueberry bushes in the ick. I was covered in mud, but have finally spent my Christmas money for trees. Rick didn't feel like planting them with me yesterday, so I rode them around on the lawn mower and showed them their new home, chatting to them about future plans and additions. I think they will be happy here, as long as the deer don't eat them up.   Gotta go figure out what I'm playing next week.   Glenda Sutton   By the way, is there a recommended recording of Gigout's "Ten Pieces"?

We have been paying storage on this set for three years now, plus whatever we paid for it. Please make an offer- I'm sure it would receive serious consideration.   Yours truly,   Keith Williams Buzard Pipe Organ Builders ________________________________________________________________ GET INTERNET ACCESS FROM JUNO!

Hie program:   Durufle Suite, Op. 5: Pr=E9lude & Sicilienne. (closing mov't omitted because Durufl=E9 later rejected it)   Bach Pre & Fug in b   hymn: When In Our Music God Is Glorified   Vierne Symph 2 (complete)   Bruce really understands this music, His sense of this music was SO RIGHT!!! He does it like it's no big deal and certainly not with flamboyant gestures or excesses of tempo, rubato, registration or you name it. But it was just solid and most artistic playing!!!   The organ and acoustical environment complement each other well and provide a quite fine sound. Perhaps list member John Speller would comment on the organ's background from its beginning to its present state, as John knows the organ better than I do.   Congrats to Bruce. Our nation is the finer for such persons presenting such music in unheralded places. Let me herald this one just a bit.   Cordially,   Karl E. Moyer Lancaster PA

(back) Subject: Re: Temperaments !A Cathedral Organ by Pasi !Xpost From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Mon, 28 Jan 2002 00:48:08 EST   Dear Listers   I've said many times, *historically* Meantone, 1/4Comma. 1/5 Comma, 1/6 Comma(Silbermann) Well Temper, of about 12-18 different incarnations, Have served the tone of organs, and their lituratiure rather well. IMHO the new proposed Pasi Cathedral organ will be well received. For the last 100 plus years, we have suffered with a compromise called equal = temperment. I believe the modern ear has finally heard this deficiency, especially = with the organs produced in the 60's and 70's. This return to open thinking as = to suitable temperments, is a very good thing. I applaud those like Mr. Pasi and others willing to take the risk to do it. I also believe the tide has turned in favor of the blend and tonal beauty of organs. We are not turning to = past failures, we are indeed reassessing present failures, and looking back at past successes.   Organs used for choral accompaniment as well as recital material will = benefit from these new but also old directions. It is a major distraction to hear major and minor thirds and sixths fighting madly against, Mixtures, = mutations and reeds. I hear these deficinecies now present in equal, and the result = is most unpleasant and ugly. It is most unpleasant with digital organs that = also have stretch tuning. I suppose many of the builders of digital organs are = now supplying temperments as natural relief to the rigors of listening to unbridaled Equal temperment. Those that do, THANK YOU! Winded organs will in a way break the regidity because air flow by nature is never completely steady, = and Makes Equal a bit more palitable.   I do look foreward to pipe organ builders, who are willing to swim for a while against the current of the present thinking, and in the future being = proved right. I think, IMHO when the organists have given experiments such as these a fair trial, they will find a new delight in playing all the liturature. Different denominations, and service programs, and choirs have different needs. My views will not suit them all. My views may also bring relief to a great = many. Most of the uproars are caused because of the fear of change. It must be put into perspective that Equal is the new kid on the block having issued forth for only 10% of the organ's existence. It was an experiment too. For the most part a nasty one especially for reeds, Mixtures, and mutations. Historically 90% of the time other temperments more friendly to Mixtures Mutations and reeds were used. I say It's time to look at this again.   Regards,   Ron Severin
