(back) Subject: New Erik Suter CD From: "Karl Moyer" <kmoyer@marauder.millersville.edu> Date: Sun, 20 Oct 2002 15:28:42 -0400   Thought folks on these lists might be interested: I just got and heard the new CD "Fete Francais" by Erik Suter, organist at Washington National Cathedral, recorded on the fairly new Fisk at St. James's Episcopal = Church, Richmond VA. The organ seems tailor-made for the all-French program Erik plays, and, to my taste, he plays the socks off his stuff!!   His interpretation and sensitivity to the Franck Prelude, Fugue and Variation makes it JUST RIGHT!! He plays it precisely the way I think Vernon deTar of blessed memory would wish it to be played: nothing fussy, nothing curious, just solid music-making where the musicianship serves the music and not the organist's ego. He'd get an A+ from deTar for that.   His perofrmance of the Joseph Bonnet "Variations de concert," Op. 1, is worth the price of the CD by itself!   Erik will be pre-convention recitalist Thursday night 19 June for the = OHS convention in central PA, playing a Lane tracker rebuilt by R. J. Brunner = & Co.   Karl E. Moyer Lancaster PA

Highland Park (Dallas) UMC never "was", or <is> "the largest Methodist congregation" in the nation. For MANY years, FUMC Houston was the "largest" UMC congregation in the U.S., well over Highland Park (Dallas) UMC by several thousand. However, Windsor Village UMC, Houston, now is the "largest."   Cheers! Scott
