(back) Subject: Durufle questions and Florence Foster Jenkins From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@access.aic-fl.com> Date: Sat, 18 May 2002 08:23:29 -0500   These are maybe not quite as stupid as the last:   (1) Has anyone noticed a vague resemblance between the Toccata from the Suite, Op. 5, and the Schneider Toccata?   (2) Does anyone on the list play the Sicilienne from the Suite? The more I listen to Durufle, the more I like him. However, I can't help but find this particular movement boring. I'm just looking for someone who has been "ecstacized" by it.   (3) Has anyone heard Felix (Hell, that is) play any Durufle?   A friend of mine is giving me his CD collection. Because Pentecost is upon us, I rummaged through the half he handed over Friday, knowing he owned the Thomas Murray Durufle CD, and I wanted to listen to the "Veni Creator". Hence my array of questions.   An aside - I don't know if Bob Elms is on this list or the other. In the collection was a CD of Florence Foster Jenkins' "The Glory (???) of the Human Voice". I know you all have talked about her, but I had still never had the pleasure (and I just received your tape, Bob, but had not had a chance to put it in the machine when I got this). I was pulling off from the house with the CD in the machine, and almost wrecked in the soft sand going up the hill. I thought I would pee all over myself at the "Queen of the Night" aria - tears were streaming down my face. It was just too intense - I've only been able to listen to the first three selections and the last Trio with Elmer Fudd.   It was such a blessing to hear this while in the midst of my leave-taking from the church - it helped my state of mind immensely. At first I was afraid I was the reincarnation of Florence with my organ-playing, but if so, I have improved. And I can always console myself with the fact that I could have been an opera singer of that caliber.   When I've taught the choir of cats and kittens to sing "Cantique de Jean Racine", look for us all at Carnegie Hall.   Glenda Sutton

When I was at = Oberlin, I and the 44 other organ majors knew there was no escape from the = discipline of memory playing.>>   This brought a chuckle. How well I knew that. I was unfortunately not = quite so lucky as you, having made a few slips. Somehow I got out of = them, but I do not remember how.   Fenner was legendary for playing all six Bach trio-sonatas from memory (i = think on one recital!!). (i believe Garth managed to evade playing from = memory when he gave recitals for some lame excuse!!)   There was a story going around Obie at the time about a previous prof from = the deep South who had a student who played the Bach F major toccata on a = student recital. Apparently there was a time limit of about 8 minutes per = student. There is a point in the piece before the middle development = section which recurs again near the end, but then taking a completely = different harmonic direction. Those who know the piece probably know what = I am talking about.   Well, you can probably guess what happened: the poor student kept "looping = back" to the first version and played the middle part over and over! (i = don't know how he finally finished it up.) Somebody said something to his = prof about how it exceeded the time limit by about double, and the prof = shot back, "well, i didn't know he was gonna FORGIT!!!"   Merry Foxworth

When you see stuff like this, you can usually write the message =   off.

Sometimes you guess a "real" address, and sometimes a star alias is in force on the domain. You =   can send an email to gobbledygook34528wheee@hamtech.org and it will not bounce....it will wind up in my mail. Sometimes "misaddressed" posts will =   wind up in the mailbox of someone at the ISP or hosting company, as a "service" in case they were "important".   2) The whole second-string idea about the virus stopping to see if it =   got it right the first time is just ridiculous. Viruses aren't going to send one copy of themselves, then check your mail and figure out if they were successful before sending the second copy.   3) This recent Klez thing (for example) doesn't go out as being "From:" the infected person, as we all found out when it impersonated Noel. Bounce messages are sent to the address the virus fakes the message =   as being from, not to the infected person. I've gotten a few of them when =   the virus spoofed my address on someone else's machine.     > > > It is very simple. A multinational energy company > > > did this same thing 25 times to thwart virus > > > invaders on their global e-mail system.

This "advice" thing has been floating around for a long time without this much-needed component. If = you don't get referred to a press release on the "multinational company" website, it's just hot air.     I think this is one of those things that some bozos write to lull =   less knowledgeable people into a fall sense of security and "wow, JimBob knows his stuff!" I think JimBob likes to look like a hero "fixing" his friends' computers after they get fried by a virus. He sure as heck isn't helping them to keep from getting infected in the first place! :)   The bottom line is always this: go get a GOOD antivirus program, =   fully unleash it on every computer you have, and KEEP IT UPDATED. There are no exceptions.   Have fun! Ad ;-> 3 normal systems plus 1 server, all under Norton's care

Where can I get those Preludes & Fugues for organ so I can learn them myself? Ross (in NZ) -----Original Message----- From: Rev.
