Since moving to Rutland a couple of years ago, I've been subbing around, which is much fun. At least six churches have asked me to sign on, but none of them pay enough to make it worth being tied down every Sunday and having to plan, rehearse, etc. I play several places about once a month, with the understanding that if I get a call where I can make real money, their keyboard noodlers will fill in again.   Anyway, Sunday I played recorder and sat in with the choir in the big church in town.   Prelude: Handel, Sonata in C   Introit: Ride the Chariot (Marie McMarrow- phenomenal Jamaican soprano, = solo)   Anthem: Aria from "Jonah" by Samuel Felsted (Organist at the Cathedral in Kingston, c. 1760-1800 (With organ, recorder, violin, and Ms. McMarrow)   Offertory: Laudate Dominum by Mozart (choir, violin, organ, and Marie)   Postlude: Vivaldi/Bach: Concerto in F (Rip Jackson, organ)   Marie came to do a recital, and is trying to get a visa to live in the US, go to graduate school, and work, which is proving a little complicated. Gotta love the INS!   Paul   http://www.sover.net/~popel/agomain.html

I = thought you may appreciate the following:-     Some years ago, I had been playing the wonderful Willis at St George's = Hall, Liverpool in the UK.   On leaving the magnificent hall, two small boys crouched by the outside = wall enjoying the sunshine.   "Ere Mister!" Came a squeaky voice, "what you been up to?"   "I've been playing the organ in the hall", I replied.   Big Brother says to little brother (about 10 yrs old), " e's been = playing the owgan our kid! That's what that great racket was!"   Little Brother looks at me and says, "How many pipes does it 'ave?"   "I think it has about 8,500", I replied.   Small boy looks at big brother and says, "Imagine that, our = kid.....filling up 8,500 pipes full of Wacky Bacci!"=20   Big Brother (about 12 years old) asks me, "Do you have a cigarette = wack?"   I smiled back, "Sorry, I smoke a pipe!"   With that I departed, but realised immediately why Liverpool is often = referred to as the biggest open prison in the world.   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK

I'm prepared to do time rather than pay out. We are talking as much as =A3100,000 in copyright.   "Mine is a much better silent piece. I have been able to say in one minute what Cage could only say in four minutes and 33 seconds."   Batt gave a cheque to Nicholas Riddle, managing director of Cage's publishers Peters Edition, on the steps of the High Court, in London.   Riddle said: "We feel that honour has been settled.   "We had been prepared to make our point more strongly on behalf of Mr Cage'= s estate, because we do feel that the concept of a silent piece -- particularly as it was credited by Mr Batt as being co-written by "Cage" -- is a valuable artistic concept in which there is a copyright.   "We are nevertheless very pleased to have reached agreement with Mr Batt over this dispute, and we accept his donation in good spirit."   "A One Minute Silence" has now been released as part of a double A-side single.=20   --Got it off the CNN website.   Required organ content:   Do we organists have to credit Cage in the bulletin if we choose NOT to pla= y during communion?     Randy Runyon Music Director Zion Lutheran Church Hamilton, Ohio runyonr@muohio.edu

(back) Subject: RE: What did you play today? (and what will you play next week)? From: "Emmons, Paul" <pemmons@wcupa.edu> Date: Mon, 23 Sep 2002 15:24:28 -0400   Prelude: Bach-- Allein Gott (trio) from the Great 18.   Communion voluntary: Frescobaldi-- Toccata per l'Elevazione, from Messa delli Apostoli   Postlude: Murrill, Herbert-- Carillon   I submitted the communion voluntary to the rector in case he wanted to = list it in the bulletin, but he didn't. However, during the passing of the peace, he came over and quickly whispered to me to keep the volume down during communion. Perhaps he was afraid that all toccatas are fast and loud!   Perhaps I should have saved the prelude for this upcoming Sunday, Sept. = 29, the Feast of Saint Michael and All Angels. Like most saints' days, it's probably among those that the 1976 Book of Common Prayer directs should be transferred whenever it falls on a Sunday-- an unfortunate impoverishment. We used to get only one or two such days a year anyway, per the prayer = book calendar, which basically commemorates only the Apostles . The result of the current usage is that the saints and their days have virtually disappeared from the experience of everyone who doesn't habitually attend = a weekday mass. So I don't mind defying this rubric and taking the opportunity to observe Michaelmas musically, because there is so much wonderful music for it.   This includes:   Jesiah dem Propheten --Scheidt and others Allein Gott --Bach and others (J.S. Bach wrote more chorale preludes on Allein Gott than any other chorale.) Unuberwindlich starke Held, Sankt Michael --Johann Nepomuk David Dux Michael --Johann Christian David (Johann Nepomuk's son) L'Ange a la Trompette --Jacques Charpentier Les Anges --Messiaen L'ange aux parfums --Messiaen

These will be available through OHS, and at a special price until the end of December. = OHS member William Gudger is editor, along with Terence Best, and the editions are newly engraved to the large size of about 10" x 12-3/4".   Problem is, OHS has little experience with the demand for performing editions of works for organ and orchestra, so we're not sure what to = stock. Complicating our decision is the variety of "special deals" available. If any of you think you might have interest in any of the following, I would greatly appreciate your private e-mails to let me know:   1. Full scores only to all 6 concertos in op. 4, in the organ and = orchestra versions, for $78   2. Full Scores and Organ Solo Parts to all 6 concertos in op. 4, for $119   3. Complete Performance Material to all 6 concertos in op. 4, including = full score, organ solo part, sets of wind and string parts, bass part with figures, and realized continuo part. (For example, Concerto No. 3 in G = minor includes Oboe 1/Oboe II, Violin Solo, Cello Solo, 2 Violin I, 2 Violin II, Viola, 3 Bass parts with figured bass [Vc/Cb, Bassoon], Harpsichord), the whole package for $369.50   4. In addition to the three options above, one may order for each of the = six concerti: A) Full score B) Organ Solo C) sets of parts D) additional = string parts   Just to be sure that I'm not misunderstood, I'll state that this edition = of these concerti is for organ and orchestra, and not to be confused with editions which are for organ alone (both apparently having been sanctioned by the composer). OHS already sells three editions of op. 4 for organ = alone, one edited by William Gudger and published by A-R Editions for $41, = another edited by Herman Keller and published inexpensively by Masters Music in = two books for $9.95 each, and the third edited by W. T. Best and reprinted by Dover for $12.95).   Thanks for any response you may have for me.   Bill

I have been able to say in one minute what Cage could only say in four minutes and 33 seconds."   Batt gave a cheque to Nicholas Riddle, managing director of Cage's publishers Peters Edition, on the steps of the High Court, in London.   Riddle said: "We feel that honour has been settled.   "We had been prepared to make our point more strongly on behalf of Mr = Cage's estate, because we do feel that the concept of a silent piece -- particularly as it was credited by Mr Batt as being co-written by "Cage" = -- is a valuable artistic concept in which there is a copyright.   "We are nevertheless very pleased to have reached agreement with Mr Batt over this dispute, and we accept his donation in good spirit."   "A One Minute Silence" has now been released as part of a double A-side single.   --Got it off the CNN website.   Required organ content:   Do we organists have to credit Cage in the bulletin if we choose NOT to = play during communion?     Randy Runyon Music Director Zion Lutheran Church Hamilton, Ohio runyonr@muohio.edu         "Pipe Up and Be Heard!"

(back) Subject: Atlanta in November From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@direcway.com> Date: Mon, 23 Sep 2002 20:05:33 -0500   While planning an itinerary and contacting persons for permissions to see what I want to see in Atlanta, I pause to wonder where I should attend church on Sunday morning, November 10. St. Phillip's? Any other suggestions? If you've read me, you know what I like - I tend toward the higher in Anglican tradition, but with a good preacher (none of that modern-day agnostic sh_t, pardon my legalese - 10 points if the Bible is mentioned with favor) and great music.   Thanks for any help.   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com

The taste of the martini on the tongue has to strike the right chords.   I like to make my vodka and gin into health food - therefore, one of my favorite drinks is a Salty Dog - mixed with grapefruit juice, with salt around the rim of the glass. Bloody Mary with Spicy Hot V-8 juice is great too, with celery salt rimming the glass. Of course, I'll drink just about anything but Scotch, and mixed with just about anything, so I'm not as discriminating as I might sound.   Never had bitter lemon, but love Stolichnaya Lemonaya (lemon flavored vodka).   Alan, I've been to NYC twice, and haven't been able to drag Rick up there yet. If you see me, it may be in the company of any number of strange people (none stranger than myself), but probably not with Rick. He's a homebody. Will let you know the next time I am heading that way.   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com     -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org] On Behalf Of Alan Freed I gave up martinis in 1964, having discovered that I'd just bought a horse and wagon under the influence (at a post-ordination barbecue, of all things). What I LOVE is gin and bitter lemon, but it gets harder and harder to find bitter lemon (Canada Dry or Schweppes, e.g.). Your opinion?   We must meet some day. Bring husband.
