No wonder I like it- I have several other works of Benoit's, and they're all useful. The collective knowledge of the list comes through again!   Paul   http://www.sover.net/~popel/agomain.html      
(back) Subject: Easter Vigil (X-posted) From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Sun, 20 Apr 2003 06:22:16 -0700   Best Easter Vigil ever! Best crowd of the week, too. Just under two hours. Congregation sang up a storm.   It made ever so much more sense reading the Prophecies FIRST, and THEN blessing the fire and the candle and singing the Exsultet. The Rector and one of the deacons sang it together, and did a FINE job.   Easter Mattins was WONDERFUL ... thought they were going to blow the ROOF off singing the Te Deum ... accompanied by great clouds of incense and ringing of bells.   No one complained about not having the Vigil Mass; looking over the congregation, I could almost predict which Mass everyone will come to tomorrow.   So ... liturgically correct or not, it worked.   I continue to be amazed at the acoustics in the new church ... on Good Friday, Psalm 69 to the Direct Tone set the whole building vibrating; "Were You There" (in unison, without the organ) just SOARED; at the Vigil, the first Alleluia was like a thunderclap.   A blessed Easter to everyone!   Bud    
(back) Subject: Advent, Boston From: "David Baker" <dbaker@lawyers.com> Date: Sun, 20 Apr 2003 12:18:19 -0700 (PDT)   Not being otherwise occupied, I went to the Easter Vigil at Church of the A= dvent, Boston. The choral/organ music was:   Sicut cervis - Pierre de la Rue ((died 1518) Missa brevis (omitting the Kyrie) - Zolt=E1n Kod=E1ly Ecce, vicit Leo - Peter Philips (1561-1628) Easter, from 5 Mystical Songs - Ralph Vaughan Williams   :), +ecstasy+, for one who has been too long in the roman desert:)   David Baker  
(back) Subject: Easter Sunday morning xpost From: "Alan Freed" <acfreed0904@earthlink.net> Date: Sun, 20 Apr 2003 16:05:08 -0400   First, I'm going to claim that we had the most unUSUAL postlude of = ANYbody. See much farther down the page.   Participants: Parish choir and organ, of course. Brass quartet (two = tubas and two euphoniums) from concert band of Waldorf College [Luth.], Waverly, Iowa, in town on tour (tonight is Carnegie Hall) and having spread their personnel among maybe a dozen parishes. String Quartet in residence from One World Symphony. Plus usual local forces of course. Lutheran Book of Worship, Setting 2, festive edition by Ferguson. Packed church (mostly visitors/tourists); they all sang like Lutherans.   (L) in Latin; (H) macaronic--last half of each line in Hebrew   Prelude: Pachelbel: Canon and Gigue in D. String quartet and organ. Went OK. Processional: Jesus Christ Is Risen Today (EASTER HYMN) (H) Gospel Acclamation: Verse for Easter, composed by Cantor Pedro d'Aquino. Cantata: Johann Pachelbel: Christ lag in Todesbanden (yes, the whole thing, auf deutsch), with the sermon inserted between sections 5 and 6. Super soloists. Many people thought it was a repeat of last year's Bach's same = cantata--and it DID sound like it! (Well, it should; same cantus firmus; same text.) Offertory anthem (with brass) was supposed to be Daniel Pinkham's = Offertory for Easter, but it sounded pretty rocky in warmup, so Pedro replaced it = with something on the organ--I don't recall what, now. The brass folks just weren't ready. Motet at communion: Pascha nostrum (L), composed by Cantor Hymns at communion: We Who Once Were Dead (MIDDEN IN DE DOOD) At the Lamb's High Feast We Sing (SONNE DER GERECHTIGKEIT) Recessional: Christ the Lord Is Risen Today (LLANFAIR) (H) And that postlude! Brass quartet: Oo-ba-di; oo-ba-da (or something like that) by the Beatles. Very oom-pah style, but very well done. Folks crowded around them during it, and applauded after. I told them that if anyone points out the inappropriateness of it, they should say it's really = a brass Fantasy on EASTER HYMN, having the same opening six (I think) notes.   Oy. Not our usual, but it was fun.   Alan

Not our usual, but it was fun.     Alan, 'et al',   I don't think that I can top that, but around 35 years ago my choir boys ended an Easter Day Service by sing ing their "party piece"!   We had processed out during the final hymn, and as the choir vestry was at =   the back of the church, the boys came out again without their surplices = and gave a hearty rendering of "We all live in a Yellow Submarine".   This was entirely with the blessing of the Rector and the Organist, in fact, the Rector was at the door, telling people to wait inside for the choral postlude!   Strange things can happen if you have the right people!   Bob Conway

So far, nobody knows about "Top Secret stuff." We are concerned about "friends" = in "your firm"--and about "this Character."   Some of us are getting close to calling the cops in Ipswich, Mass. Who KNOWS who's snatched you? Try to send us a coded message about organ = stops that makes no sense to others, or something!!   I hope we get the authorities there in TIME!   Alan (sounds like a Dorothy Sayers novel--and those who don't know them should get ON IT)

The fare:   Samuel Sebastian Wesley Introduction and Fugue in C# minor Bach/Reger Two-part Inventions with Third Voice Added by Reger L=EBon Bo=EBllmann Ronde Francaise, Op. 37 Alexandre Guilmant Sonata No. 5 in C minor   All will be on the organ in the chancel but with the large reed at the (liturgical) west end of the nave. The Wesley and the Guilmant ought to work fairly well there. "No one" knows the Wesley, but I think it's a fine, fine piece, perhaps a bit sombre for Easter season. (I hope no one kicks me out because of that!) Guilmant structured various aspects of Sonata 5 with an eye back to Beethoven and, of course, also to Bach. Despite others' opinions, I think this is the finest of the Guilmant sonatas, complete with a fine, fine scherzo and a really wonderful closing chorale and fugue movement.   It would be fun to meet listers following the "halloween tricks" at the organ. :-) Bring a rotten tomato or two for self-expression. :-)   Karl E.

So moving; that I can't wait to try the same type of thing at my church.   Harry Grove
