Any recommendations for a new fan?   I know Flor Peeters Aria op. 51, 35 pieces, 60 short pieces, Legende op. 59 #2 (gorgeous), chorale preludes, and Festival Voluntary, Lyrical Pieces op.116, and Suite Modale. I would love to find the rest of the 3 pieces that go with op. 59. I'd love to know any more pieces by him that aren't the easy type (easy as in 60 short pieces) but which are advanced.   And if I love the music of the above composers, whom else might I like?   I read through a set of pieces by Howells written late; any other pieces you like for solo organ? These late pieces are sometimes a little too modern for me but I love his harmonies in general.   I tried ordering a set of 5 short pieces by Percy Whitlock and the Rheinberger Sonata in G, op. 88 from the largest music store in a big city near me and they emailed me after many weeks saying that these pieces are not available!!! Any recommendations for another store with an 800 number or a web presence?   I adore Cortege & Litanie, Magnificat I, and a Gloria (short toccata) by Dupre. I cannot play long toccatas (where consistently fast notes persist for more than 3 pages) but I'd like to know more works besides the Variations on Noel themes and Etudes. I have the 15 pieces book and the chorale preludes.   Thanks to all who answer,   Lynn Finegan St. Stephen's Episcopal Orinda, CA ----__JNP_000_5cce.02f4.0c10 Content-Type: text/html; charset=3Dus-ascii Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable   <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN"> <HTML><HEAD> <META http-equiv=3D3Dcontent-type = content=3D3Dtext/html;charset=3D3Diso-8859-1> <META content=3D3D"MSHTML 5.50.4725.2100" name=3D3DGENERATOR></HEAD> <BODY bottomMargin=3D3D0 leftMargin=3D3D3 topMargin=3D3D0 = rightMargin=3D3D3> <DIV></DIV> <DIV>Fellow organists,</DIV> <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV>I just sightread <EM>Petit Prelude</EM> and <EM>Chant de Mai</EM> by = =3D Jongen=3D20 and I am salivating for more of his music.&nbsp; Any recommendations for a = =3D new=3D20 fan?</DIV> <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV>I know Flor Peeters <EM>Aria op. 51, 35 pieces, 60 short pieces, =3D Legende=3D20 op. 59 #2</EM> (gorgeous), chorale preludes, and <EM>Festival Voluntary, = =3D Lyrical=3D20 Pieces op.116, and Suite Modale</EM>.&nbsp; I would love to find the rest = =3D of the=3D20 3 pieces that go with op. 59.&nbsp; I'd love to know any more pieces by = him=3D that=3D20 aren't the easy type&nbsp;(easy as in&nbsp;60 short pieces) but which = are=3D20 advanced.</DIV> <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV>And if I <U>love</U> the music of the above composers, whom else = might=3D I=3D20 like?</DIV> <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV>I read through a set of pieces by Howells written late; any other =3D pieces=3D20 you like for solo organ?&nbsp; These late pieces are sometimes a little = too=3D =3D20 modern for me but I love his harmonies in general.</DIV> <DIV>&nbsp;</DIV> <DIV>I tried ordering a set of <EM>5 short pieces</EM> by Percy Whitlock = =3D and the=3D20 Rheinberger <EM>Sonata in G</EM>, op. 88 from the largest music store in a = =3D big=3D20 city near me and they emailed me after many weeks saying that these pieces = =3D are=3D20 not available!!!

Of particular interest might be "Petite Suite". It's not really intended for "sight reading", but worth the time "Chorale" (I don't remember opus #) by Jongen is very nice.   I wonder about your statement about Howells works being too modern? Have you done any of his Psalm Preludes?   Good luck.   Jon Bertschinger Organist   Westminster Presybterian Brookdale Presbyterian Churches

I'm pretty sure it's still in print - any decent music outlet should be able to supply it. Banks of York, UK certainly can. There is also an album of some of his longer pieces in the same series.   Music shops and even the publishers never seem to have the faintest idea what is in the albums they sell. It must loose them lots of sales.   Best wishes,   Bruce Miles   mail to:- bruce@gbmuk.fsnet.co.uk website:- http://www.gbmuk.fsnet.co.uk   ----- Original Message ----- From: <l2nn@juno.com> To: <pipechat@pipechat.org> Sent: Saturday, September 07, 2002 11:15 AM Subject: Re:Jongen, Peeters, Whitlock, Rheinberger, Howells, Dupre     > Fellow organists, > > I just sightread Petit Prelude and Chant de Mai by Jongen and I am > salivating for more of his music.

They also have been MOST =3D helpful, although shipping from Germany via boat takes about 6 weeks. =3D The order function is not secure, so I don't recommend sending credit =3D card via the site, but you can copy down the order numbers (number =3D preceded by a BM when you get your search results) and either FAX or =3D mail them your order.

Lots of nice music. He wrote a fine set of 3 modal =3D Pr=3DE9ludes and Fugues (I've yet to hear a recording, but I've got the = =3D score) and a seldom-played but unique and interesting Lied-Symphonie. =3D As with anyone who wrote over 200 organ works, not all of them are =3D equally inspired.... but all I've seen is at least well-crafted.   Oxford also publishes a Whitlock collection - I have it, and it is quote = =3D nice: Whitlock Complete Shorter Organ Music ISBN 0-19-375908-X   As for Howells, do investigate the Psalm-Preludes and Rhapsodies.... =3D fine pieces all and quite useful for the Anglican organist.   Rheinberger has MANY fine movements in the Sonatas, and as a whole, they = =3D are worth checking out... all 20 of the Sonatas have something of worth!   Dupr=3DE9.... don't get me started - we could be here for DAYS. I'll =3D start by suggesting the 7 pieces, the op 7 and op 36 Pr=3DE9ludes and =3D fugues, the Passion-Symphonie, 2nd Symphonie, Evocation, Tombeau de =3D Titelouze, 24 inventions.... his output is of very high quality.... BE = =3D WARNED... it's not easy, though   Now.   Suggestions? Here again I could go on for hours, but let me name a few:   Andr=3DE9 Fleury has written a pretty substantial amount of organ music, = =3D all of which seems to be VERY well crafted. His style is such you'd =3D probably like it from what you have said. Grunenwald: 1st and 2nd =3D Suites. His later stuff (after 1964) is pretty dissonant, but the =3D suites have some lovely moments. Demessieux: Just about anything she =3D wrote... try the Chorale preludes on Gregorian Themes first.... Elsa =3D Barraine: 2 Pr=3DE9ludes and Fugues.... luscious impressionistic stuff - = =3D she studied with Dukas... Durufle: Anything he wrote. Awesome. =3D20   I'm sure I'll think of more as soon as I send this off, but you should =3D be quite poor if you explore those I've mentioned... the French scores =3D are notoriously expensive!   Happy hunting!   Jonathan   ----- Original Message -----=3D20 From: l2nn@juno.com=3D20 To: pipechat@pipechat.org=3D20 Sent: Saturday, September 07, 2002 3:15 AM Subject: Re:Jongen, Peeters, Whitlock, Rheinberger, Howells, Dupre     Fellow organists,   I just sightread Petit Prelude and Chant de Mai by Jongen and I am =3D salivating for more of his music.
