When I was = at school we had a fair sized 3 manual Walker organ in the school chapel = tuned by a Mr Goodey. When in the fullness of time I moved on and became = organist of Holy Trinity, Sloane Street, London, which was and is the proud = possessor of a fine 4 manual Walker organ, Mr Goodey was also the tuner of this instrument. Now,he was a good tuner, however in my enthusiasm at the new organ at my disposal I went through it in great detail noting down in the "book" every fault to be found. Although a new instrument there were a = few! I don't think he ever spoke to me again after that!

(back) Subject: What are we playing 10/27? From: "Robert Lind" <Robert_Lind@cch.com> Date: Wed, 23 Oct 2002 12:01:05 -0500   I try to add 100 new pieces to my repertory each year, and I'm wondering = if I'm wandering too far off the beaten path. Sunday will be Reformation = Sunday in my Lutheran church, and organ voluntaries will be:   PRELUDE Chorale Prelude on Ein feste Burg by Georg Michael Telemann Fugue on Ein feste Burg by Christlieb Siegmund Binder   POSTLUDE: Alleluja, Op. 54, No. 8, by Gerard Bunk   Telemann is a household word for many, but this Telemann is the grandson = of the familiar Georg Philipp. He was born in 1748, 2 years before the death = of J.S. Bach.   It's hard to believe that there were at least 3 other Binders who wrote organ works besides the one (1723-89) whom I'm featuring.   Bunk was Netherlandish (1888-1958), and the Alleluja is a fine, uplifting late-Romantic work. I must look into more of his pieces. If anyone has further recommendations, I'd appreciate your sharing your thoughts with = this list.   Robert Lind in the Chicago suburbs

It comprises three versets, based on the old rhythmic version, and strongly rhythmic themselves. They were probably intended for use in Alternatimspraxis. They are effective, and perhaps a little easier than they sound.   As I was leaving S. Timothy's, Yakima, Wash. to move to Pennsylvania in 1985, the rector found a young Lutheran woman to succeed me, and we worked together for a couple of weeks. It was late Sept. by then, so she assumed that a top priority right away would be to choose music for Reformation Sunday and start the choir working on it. She couldn't find much in the library to fit, asked the rector what to do, and was astonished to hear = that "we don't observe Reformation Sunday, because we're only half reformed." This leaves me without the pleasant prospect of doing Ein Feste Burg this coming Sunday (we will sing Brother Jame's Air and Saint Anne, and I will play voluntaries by Searle Wright and Healey Willan to match); but I can happily report that this is the best-singing congregation that I have ever had the privilege of playing for, at least in the Episcopal church, and = that they are in the habit of singing Wachet Auf in the rhythmic version. I = hope that the same will be true of Ein Feste Burg, when we do get around to = using it-- if not, I mean to push for it. Leading an enthusiastic crowd in that chorale in the authentic version is an experience not soon forgotten.

D. , "Te Deum Laudamus" H. W. Gray, The Wood Series, No. 9, copyright 1913.   I suppose a cleanly-printed scan, page by page, would be good, too.   I'll arrange with my pastor for the supplying person to get at least = one circle higher in heaven. :-)   Thanks!   Cordially,   Dr. Karl E.

Leading an enthusiastic crowd in = that > chorale in the authentic version is an experience not soon forgotten. > Paul:   Consider yourself one in a distinguished line of missionaries from Witttenberg to Canterbury, beginning with no less a Personage than Mr. Cranmer himself. As I recall the tale, he and an entourage visited Wittenberg, for an extended visit ("Liturgics and Theology 101"), during = the course of which Mr. Cranmer married the daughter of a Lutheran = clergyperson, and took his bride back to the Sceptr'd Isle with him. (Corrections to = this account are welcome! My memory may have failed me in a big way.) Back home, it was not universally known that he'd married; but it was not = totally secret either. He had to keep at least two fairly disparate parties together as best he could, y'know. Story I heard was that when he'd = travel on primatial visits to various communities, he'd feel it necessary (in conservative ["popish"] villages, etc.) to chuck the bride into the trunk (there's a word for it, but I can't remember it) of the stagecoach before they entered the town (through the cheering crowds) until they arrived at the best inn in the town, where, in the barn, ye Bride could be extracted and taken up to their suite.   I just yesterday discovered that Hymnal 1940 does NOT contain "Built on a Rock the Church Shall Stand" (which has a required "Amen," because it's = the final word of the final stanza). More missionaries needed.   Alan
