(back) Subject: the missing piece (X-posted) From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Tue, 30 Apr 2002 14:16:36 -0700   In January, when the congregation passed the 2002 budget, money was allocated for a paid chanter for the 11:00 High Mass, which had not had a choir since last September, when the Rector moved the parish choir to the 9:00 Family (Low) Mass.   The chanter was to start in June, when we were supposed to be moving into the new church. We were then told we'd be moving immediately after Easter ... I had some extra money in the music budget, so I went ahead and brought him on board, with the Rector's permission.   At the time the budget was passed in January, the Rector told me that he wanted the following:   (1) the original Gregorian melodies in English for the Introits ... the longer chants would be needed to cover the incensations. I was to provide Dr. Willan's settings (which are in the same modes as the Gregorian) as an optional alternative for the repeat of the Antiphon, so as not to keep the priest waiting at the altar, if the incensations should happen to finish before the chant.   (2) Dr. Willan's settings, fauxbourdons, or psalm-tones for the Graduals .... my choice.   (3) the original Gregorian melodies for the Alleluias, with Dr. Willan's settings, fauxbourdons, or psalm-tones for the Verses ... my choice.   (4) whatever I liked for the Offertory and Communion ... if I wanted to do the original Gregorian melodies and add the psalm-verses to cover the Offertory and Communion actions, that was fine with him. Or we could have appropriate composed solos in lieu of anthems/motets after the singing of the Offertory and Communion Antiphons to Dr. Willan's settings, fauxbourdons, or solemn psalmody.   (5) for the Ordinary, he wanted the principal Gregorian Masses (Paschalis, Solemnis, de Angelis, Dominicalis, Penitentialis, Marialis) in English, arranged for antiphonal singing by chanter and congregation, and/or other composed unison settings of the Ordinary, as long as the congregation was given the music and invited to sing, to be changed seasonally. He reserved final approval, and said he wanted to hear them before I put them into use. I concurred.   I decided to delay (1) until the Fall, to give the chanter a chance to get used to me, and to the service. So I began with Dr. Willan's settings.   (2) I began with Dr. Willan's settings.   (3) I decided to delay until Fall for the same reason. I began with Dr. Willan's settings.   (4) I began with Dr. Willan's settings, followed by solos.   (5) I suggested to the Rector that we do nothing about changing the music of the Ordinary until Fall, on account of the move and all the upheavals associated with that. We would sing Merbecke for now, and decide in the Fall what we wanted to tackle next. He concurred.   My summer substitute has to have EVERYTHING written out for her in full .... she doesn't improvise, or know how to accompany chanting ... so I commenced at once to write all the music needed through July (when I take my holiday), so I could get it to her in a timely fashion.   So ... secure in the knowledge that everything was decided, at least until Fall, I set to work.   Now, something must be noted here: we can't afford a week-day rehearsal with the chanter ... so he comes and rehearses for 30-45 minutes before the High Mass on Sundays. I initially gave him ALL the music for about six weeks ahead so he could look at it at home. So it's not a situation where he and I can turn on a dime with one week's notice.   I had just begun writing the music for the first Sunday of July when I got the Rector's e-mail. English Gradual II and Psalm-Tone 8 had never entered into our discussions in January. We haven't used English Gradual II since three weeks after I arrived, four years ago. We were using Psalm-Tones 8 and 6 with the explicit mutual agreement that it was a stop-gap measure UNTIL we could hire a chanter ... at that point, the Propers were supposed to go back to what they'd been for the past four years when the choir was singing them: a mix of the original Gregorian melodies, Dr. Willan's settings, fauxbourdons (in this case, for unison voice accompanied by the organ, which doesn't sound bad), and solemn psalmody.   I had indicated to him that I would probably adopt a seasonal scheme for the Alleluias, rather than sing the proper Alleluia melody every Sunday. The congregation already knows the Gregorian Alleluia for Advent I, Assumption (grin), the Eastertide Alleluia from Lauds, and the English Gradual II Alleluia, which we normally sing in the summer. I wanted to add a couple more. He concurred.   I HADN'T done any work on the additional Gregorian Ordinaries, because I had a FEELING he'd change his mind about THAT; and I had quite enough to do re-arranging the Propers for solo voice and getting ready for Synod, Ordinations, and the Dedication of the Church.   So the e-mail was a bolt from the blue, and a complete reversal of everything we'd discussed in the planning session in January. I will be hard-pressed to get everything done over again.   Perhaps that makes it a LITTLE clearer why I was so upset.   Bud

(back) Subject: Broken bones and theremins From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@access.aic-fl.com> Date: Tue, 30 Apr 2002 19:30:29 -0500   Well, my foot was X-rayed this morning, and I have chipped a bone in the ankle region; thankfully the knee is intact but hurts terribly today. I didn't ask the name of the bone, but once the radiologist verifies the diagnosis, the doctor is talking of soft casts. I thought yesterday he was kidding - it's only a sprain (just like I thought the orthopedic surgeon was crazy when I was struck by a car in law school, and my arm was broken and he scheduled surgery. I said, "What about all the little kiddies that fall out of trees? You just set it and cast it." Then he told me about how if the two bones of the wrist grew together I would lose certain mobility).   Well, today I was in enormous pain, driving to a meeting and returning to the office to deal with huge amounts of paper, and by the end of the day could barely put weight on the foot, even though I had tried to elevate it most of the day. I'm afraid my organ career may come to a halt four weeks earlier than I planned - I did not go to the church to attempt pedals because of the pain. So I came home and collapsed in front of the TV (after dragging myself up the stairs). On a channel called "True Stories" (never heard of it before) was a program: "Theremin: An Electronic Odyssey", a documentary produced in 1994 by Steven M. Martin, about the man and his invention. It featured him and several others, including Mr. Moog himself and Clara Rockmore.   I immediately thought of Charles Lester. I had never heard any classical music written for theremin and played with such quick precision - nifty neato fine OK. Now I won't just think of Star Trek music and "Good Vibrations" by the Beach Boys when he talks of theremins. Keep an eye out for the program.   Cheers,   Glenda Sutton

My first choice would be a Frobenius, because the two most beautifully musical instruments I have ever played are the Frobenius Organs in The Danish Seaman's Chapel in East London - 1 manual, 5 stops - and Queen's College Chapel, Oxford.(II/22) Incidentally - re organ enhancement, keyboard and pedal - I have, amongst other things, a Yamaha electronic piano. It's brilliant! Never goes out of tune and other than a Bechstein or a Bluthner - or maybe a Bosendorfer - sounds better than the real thing! It has an organ "stop" - which goes = down to AAAAA (?) anyway the full compass of a piano keyboard - with a very authentic sounding 32' reed + the first three notes of a 64'. Played in concert with the viscount the last chords of loud and exciting pieces have an added dimension. John Foss
