A lot of them a =E8 seriously out of whack.   You can find the free Atomic Clock Synch utility here:   http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file_description/0,fid,16627,00.asp   It's a small download, and works really well.   Victoria

It's just a "reminder" time. Like checking the batteries in your smoke alarm at the equinoxes. That's all.

(back) Subject: Puer Nobis From: "Alicia Zeilenga" <azeilenga@theatreorgans.com> Date: Tue, 23 Dec 2003 00:15:01 -0600   Hello, all,   As I was going through my hymnal choosing hymns for the coming months, I stumbled upon a few to the hymntune Puer Nobis. I know I have sung something to that tune, but I cannot figure out what. Does anyone know what a Catholic growing up in the nineties would have sung to that? Not What Star Is This?, That Day with Easter Joy Was Bright, or How Wonderful the Three in One. Thanks.   Alicia -who should be asleep- Zeilenga Sub-Dean AGO@UI "Santa Caecilia, ora pro nobis"

(back) Subject: Re: Puer Nobis From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Tue, 23 Dec 2003 01:32:39 EST   Dear Alicia:   Do you mean Puer Natus in Bethlehem? It was sung at midnight Mass as the Gradual. It's a plain chant tune.   Ron    
(back) Subject: Re: Puer Nobis From: "Alicia Zeilenga" <azeilenga@theatreorgans.com> Date: Tue, 23 Dec 2003 00:39:16 -0600   The one adapted by Praetorius. It is in 6/4. I know I have heard Puer Natus since my mom likes to play plainchant melodies on the piano.

(back) Subject: Re: Puer Nobis From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Tue, 23 Dec 2003 01:51:11 EST   Dear Alicia:   The only reference to Puer Nobis Is Puer Nobis Nascitur a modal tune by Leisentrill 1567. It's number 180 in the St. Pius X hymnal. Michael Praetorius may have used it in someway later for one of his choral works. It is an old Christmas hymn.   Ron

(back) Subject: Dubois' "Seven Last Words of Christ" From: "Charlie Lester" <crlester@137.com> Date: Mon, 22 Dec 2003 23:19:48 -0800   Hello,   Charlie Lester here whom some of you may know from my sometimes-overheated rants on PIPORG-L. I have joined PipeChat at the behest of one of your other subscribers, and look forward to participating.   I am the Organist and Music Director for Holy Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Inglewood, California -- have been there 14 years, and am also the Organist and Choir Director for Faith Lutheran Church (MS) in Inglewood.   As my first post, I'd like to talk about Easter music. I've decided to do a combined-choir performance of Dubois' "Seven Last Words of Christ" at Faith.   It's not being done so much anymore; is challenging enough to a volunteer choir to make them feel good about, and enjoy, working on it; and is "accessible" enough to most people that they can appreciate [e.g., sit through] a performance of it.   Plus, it is a popular work with some of the singers I would be inviting to participate -- it was done for a number of years by a local community choir called The Choral Gifts. I was their accompanist for about 10 years and the Dubois was one of their annual offerings. Word is getting around that I'd like to do the work, and I am already getting some enthusiastic calls about it.   All that having been said, I need to find copies of the vocal score, and, if possible, the conductor's & organist's scores. There is no money in this "budget-challenged" [critically] church's coffers to purchase copies of the score (@ $10 per), so I am issuing an "S.O.S." to see if anyone out there may have this work in their library and be willing to lend or donate the music to us, or sell it at a "bargain basement" rate. Surely someone, somewhere, has a stack of these scores gathering dust in the deepest reaches of their music library and wouldn't mind seeing them go to a good home! I expect to have about 50 choir members.   I will also need an organist, preferably someone who has already performed the work or who is familiar with it. While it's not the most challenging thing ever written for the organ, there are some dicey passages in it that really have to be done well. In particular, there's a big "earthquake" scene that's portrayed on the organ -- played properly, it's dramatic and chilling; played poorly, it sounds like cornball music from some even cornier horror movie. (I'll never forget the time I heard an organist accompany the work, playing on a Hammond Organ -- for the "earthquake scene" he put on the Vibrato3 and chose one of the muddy preset "stops." It was just ghastly in every regard -- one expected Vince Price or Bela Lugosi to materialize at any moment.)   The stipend for the organist will be underwritten by a private patron, so there are funds for that; but any accommodation that could be made would be appreciated. We'd begin rehearsing in mid-January, Saturdays from 11 to 2, with the performance tentatively scheduled for the Sunday before Palm Sunday, in the afternoon. We have a very nice 3-manual Casavant btw.   You can contact me off-list at my email address, or leave a message for me at the church office at 323-750-3552.   Thanks in advance.   ~ ~~~ ~~~~~~~ Charlie Lester    
(back) Subject: P.S. From: "Charlie Lester" <crlester@137.com> Date: Mon, 22 Dec 2003 23:25:46 -0800   There is, or was, a list similar to PIPORG-L and PIPECHAT for choral directors, etc. Anyone know if that list is still active, or, better yet, does anyone subscribe to it? If so, would you mind forwarding my query about the Dubois to them?   Thx   ~ C
