Hall" <jonathan@jonathanbhall.com> Date: Sun, 8 Sep 2002 12:31:12 -0700 (PDT)   Hi--   My former teacher in Chicago, David Schrader, has recorded the Wedge beautifully on one of Jaeckel's better instruments--it's on the Cedille label and I really like it...though of course I admit to prejudice!   It is, I think, on the complete Bach toccatas and fugues CD--he tosses in the Wedge for good measure, so you might miss it by the title of the recording...   Take care,   Jon NYC

Clark's 40th Anniversary in Church Music. D. H. is the Director of Music at Northminster and the choir and congregation went all out to celebrate this occasion. Sand also needs special recognition for his part in the service. When I heard they were doing "I Was Glad" I was wondering how they were going to pull it off accompaniment wise on their 2 manual, 15 rank Moller Tracker without any reeds or Swell box. But Sand did it and I got "chills" and a bit emotional listening to he and the choir do that number. Actually, Sand did a wonderful job with all the accompaniments and other music he played this morning.   Ken played the Gigue Fugue for the Postlude, for which EVERYONE sat down and stayed and listened, as a little "preview" of his concert this afternoon. That concert, which was held at a neighboring church, was very well attended and ken did his usual fine job. During the intermission i heard someone saying to another person "That was amazing" and all i could think of, if you think that was amazing just wait for the 2nd half!! Hopefully, Sand will post the program and if he doesn't i will try to in the morning.   There is much more I could say about today but it is late after a 3 hour drive home and then cleaning house in preparation for some dinner guests tomorrow night. But I am very glad I made the trip down - it was one the highlights of the year.   KUDOs to all concerned with putting this service together.   David
