Having said that - and remembering that it was, no doubt, intended to be seen live at some distance from the stage the closer view afforded by the cameras tended to make the "acting" rather over the top.   While the orchestral playing was excellent (but where was the lute - small ORGAN substituting for it - ?), and most of the arias superbly performed = (I personally didn't like the bass soloist's voice) the choruses were poor, = and the beautiful Chorales unintelligible, the parts being out of sync, and = the words inaudible, mainly I suspect, due to the impressive (if not = excessive) vibrato on display! The recits were, as one would expect of an operatic company, an excellent example of how to sing such lines - the evangelist was very good indeed, = but I found the operatic style of accompanying them with brief chords rather than the more usual (and authentic?) sustained continuo accompaniment less than satisfactory.   All in all, I thought it was an interesting idea, which gave much food for thought, and which I enjoyed overall (it was also in English - even = although the opening chorus sounded like German, so clear was the choral singing! - which was an aid to the devotional properties of the arias, at least to an English speaking listener [who still prefers listening to things in their original language] - which one has to remember was their purpose).   My favourite recording of this is (although I am a bit of a purist) that = by Karl Richter - the continuo organ part played by Hedwig Bilgram is = superb, as is the choral singing, particularly the chorales which are the best I have heard, and very moving.   It must have been nice for an opera company to sing some decent music too!   (Okay, I'm only joking - honest!)     Graeme Martin   Director of Music, St. Barnabas, (organ spec. available, if you want it! - 4 man, 50 stop) Erdington, Birmingham, UK       -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org]On Behalf Of MusicMan Sent: 21 April 2003 09:42 To: pipechat@pipechat.org Subject: St. John- reworked     New thread.   Last night I watched BBC4's screening of St.John - English National, et = al.- as an Opera (in modern dress) rather than as an Oratorio.   For those able to receive that programme - how was it for you ?   I thought the performance of an excellent standard (musically), the acting excellent / sublime, and the effects adding to the theatre of the piece = (and yes,I know the original reasons for NOT having acting - but times have changed).

(back) Subject: Shut it! From: "Colin Mitchell" <cmys13085@yahoo.co.uk> Date: Tue, 22 Apr 2003 13:37:47 +0100 (BST)   Hello,   Time for a Widor story!   Many moons ago, and I cannot recall the name of the organist at the time, there was an "incident" at Chichester Cathedral.   The organist of the day was something of a francophile, and even had notices on his garden gate written in French.   He was especially fond of Widor choral music, and would encourage the choir to sing long, tedious anthems by the "master".   During the singing of one particularly extended choral work at Evensong, there was a musical pause, during which a voice was heard saying quietly, "Let us pray".   The organist glowered at the offending clergyman and growled, "Shut your bloody mouth, we haven't finished yet!"   :)   Anyone know who the organist was? I can then include this properly in my collection of such things.   regards,   Colin Mitchell UK   __________________________________________________ Yahoo!

When they distribute the Elements, an Altar Assistant first comes by with the shot glasses, and one simply takes one, if that's how a person prefers to take the Blood of Christ. Afterward, the Pastor comes by, which is when one is supposed to be taking the cup (either by drinking from the Common Cup, which he has in his hands or drinking from the individual cup) as he pronounces the words: "Take and Drink, this is the True Blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; given and shed on Calvary's cross for the forgiveness of your sins!"   This seems like the most sensible and sensitive arrangement to me.   Of course, all bets are off in churches where Grape Juice is used instead of wine, since there is no alcohol involved to kill any germs!   Faithfully,   G.A. -- Richard Schneider, PRES/CEO SCHNEIDER PIPE ORGANS, Inc.

He had some connections in New York (big RC church at 96th and ?Amsterdam. In fact, I believe he spent some time here, living in Washington Heights. I made arrangements for him to practice on our little tracker several years ago (in preparation for a recital at the Oratoire, = or something), but it turned out more convenient for him to work on a three-manual electronic near his apartment, so I never met him.   With bated breath, I await news.   Alan

Decent quality. I had = one LP of his singing a lot of Stephen Foster songs. Pleasant voice. Don't know about the Handel. Probably not, generally.   Alan

I forwarded this post to him in hopes that we could encourage him to come and take part in this discussion.   I remember one particularly UGLY posting by someone who seemed to imply that because Arthur wouldn't "suck up", he was being passed over by the NYC musical "elite". That was disgusting to me. He had always been most kind and generous with his time to me.   You think we could all "play nice" this time, if we DO get him to participate??   I HOPE he has posting privileges. . .   Faithfully,   G.A. -- Richard Schneider, PRES/CEO SCHNEIDER PIPE ORGANS, Inc.
