(I hope the overly simple terminoligy makes sense...) An interesting blend of modern-ish tonalities, put together in much more strict (older) classic forms. Many musical moods. Sometimes quite dramatic indeed -- sometimes not, but always interesting. The music keeps me waiting for the next direction it will take; all the while I'm enjoying the current moment.   But of course, I am not any sort of authority.

(back) Subject: Easter voluntaries From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Mon, 21 Apr 2003 19:32:49 -0700   Y'all saw my Holy Week and Easter service-lists ... I frankly haven't had the TIME *or* the ENERGY to prepare big voluntaries for Easter for many years, even when I was in good health. If we had brasses, fine; otherwise they got whatever they got. This year they got a Benoit voluntary on Missa Lux et origo, the plainsong Mass for Eastertide, and that was that ... the choir sang something instead of a postlude.   I really don't know how other anglo-catholic organists manage some of the things I see listed, unless they have sub-organists who either play the voluntaries, or play the Masses ... or they're a LOT younger than I am <G>. If I tried to play the Widor Toccata at the end of OUR Holy Week marathon, the next service sung in St. Matthew's would be my REQUIEM (chuckle).   Cheers,   Bud
