(back) Subject: Re: Last Sunday before Advent From: "Kenneth Potter" <swell_shades@yahoo.com> Date: Mon, 25 Nov 2002 18:52:44 -0800 (PST)   We celebrated "Harvest Sunday" which is a very Caribbean tradition, with some moves toward Christ the King. Pre and Post were "Now Thank We All Our God" by G. F. Kauffman, a simple manual piece, and the Bach/Fox Sinfonia to Cantata 79 played at a ripping pace ala Virgil. At my church they like quiet and meditative at the Prelude, but gangbusters at the Postlude. We had a long two hymn/two choir processional that went from the sacristy round the perimeter of the church one and a half times and then up the center aisle to "We Gather Together" and "Come, Ye Thankful People" with lots of smoke. The sopranos sang a descant to "Come Ye Thankful" from the rear. The sequence was "All Hail The Power Of Jesus Name" sung to Miles Lane instead of the more usual American version. The more Brit-oriented islanders in the congregation sang it lustily. Anthems were "Sing To The Lord Of Harvest" by Healey Willan, and the Junior Choir sang my own two part arrangement of "As I Went Down In The River To Pray" which you will know from the movie "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou". Naturally we recessed to "Now Thank We All Our God".   I look forward to Advent 4 because we sing the Magnificat for womens voices of Emma Lou Diemer.

Some people maintain this is too much of a limitation. For some big symphonic works, yes it won't play all the notes, but for what these were designed to do, It is not so much a problem. These units, were NOT designed to be stand-alone organs, but merely augments to existing MIDI equipped organs.   The A-G organs have 12 note polyphony on the manuals, and 4 notes on the pedals. Only the SL 250, the smallest full size console organ has 8 note polyphony on the manuals.   Arie V.

A kind of fanfare on "Christus vincit," authoress not at hand. "Christus vincit" was sung after the offertory proper. Two postludes: Postlude on Coronation, Kreuz Instrumental Hymn: Jesus, Tu Reinaras! (leaving out the diacriticals, etc.)   The problem I had was that everything (except Treacuillity) was just too short, so for the first time I played more than one piece before and after Mass. I had another piece based on Christus vincit, but it was not too organistic (Kreckel: a lot of octave scales and 8va repeats) and a little too major-key to be taken seriously in the first place.   By the way, and this only reveals my ignorance, or perhaps my location in Dallas! I did not know that it was legal to sing "Jerusalem the Golden" to anything but Ewing. I will have to check that out although Complainer does not sound too enticing.   By the by the way, Langlais' music often cycles through a slew of accidentals, especially in repetitions in his modal pieces. I pulled out my Hommage a Frescobaldi the other day with a view to programming it but realized that it was based on the Mass for Saints' Days, so I guess I will have to wait. All Saints next year?   Daniel Muller

And we consult (and use) LW = all the time--just routinely. We ain't sectarian. We sing stuff from (many) Anglican and (many) Roman sources all the time. It means bulletin = inserts, but it also means richer hymnody, and we love it. Nobody minds.   But, in "C"? (Is that wimping out?)

Instead, we had thangsgiving Sunday. The organ is a 43-rank Moeller, rebuilt in 1979 by Berghaus with a new console in 1989 by Berghaus.   Prelude- Wir Danken Dir Gott- Bach/S. Drummond Wolff Offertory- arr. of O For A Thousand Tougues by Van Denman Thompson, sung by the senior choir Postlude- Doxology arr. Fred Bock- a nice contemporary flavored rythmic setting in case you don't know it.   We're also having a communtiy Thanksgiving service at Hammerschmidt Chapel at Elmhurst College where there is a 30-some odd rank Moeller from the 60's, I belive, where I will be playing the following:   Prelude- Thanksgiving- Richard Purvis Offertory- Prelude on Forest Green- Purvis Postlude- Nun Danket- Karg-Elert (it is not Thanksgiving without it)     Blessings, Beau Surratt, Organist St. Peter's UCC, Elmhurst,IL Organ Performance Major, Northern Illinois University, DeKalb,IL

(back) Subject: RE: Turntables (off topic) From: "Jonathan Roussos" <jroussos@san.rr.com> Date: Tue, 26 Nov 2002 00:00:40 -0800   Most decent receivers are set up to connect to a tape recorder. The Line Output ports are at the correct level. Just connect to the Line In port on the sound card, and use DART CD recorder and you are done. You can avoid = the cost of the preamp and the quality is likely to be better.   Jon Roussos Who suddenly feels very old with a massive number of LPs, many of which I bought new.   John Vanderlee said:   Josh, The aux. input expects a signal level of about 1.00 volt. A turntable pickup (yes the arm with the needle so to speak) puts out about .005 volts hence the faint volume! Also the AUX input is not RIAA compensated so that means it would sound tinny even if you could hear it. Most receivers have - or maybe no longer? - a phono input. This input has an extra stage of amplification plus the required compensation to bring it up to the level where you can hear it. Solution is simple: Go to Radio shack (although I dislike that chain immensely) and buy a "phono Pre-amplifier" around $29? bucks - not sure. and hook that between your phono cables and the AUX input and Bing will drive you out of the room. Or turn down the volume before you do this. ;-)
