(back) Subject: Schneider Opus XXIII Revisited From: "Mike Gettelman" <mike3247@earthlink.net> Date: Tue, 28 Jan 2003 20:29:53 -0500   My travel to Fort Wayne Indiana on Sunday Jan. 19th to hear Felix play at Trinity English Lutheran Church was rewarded with a bonus. Following the concert I followed Richard Schneider down to Berne Indiana where his recently completed Opus XXIII graces First Mennonite Church. Some of you may remember that I got the chance to assist with some installation work on this organ about a year ago, so it was a genuine treat to see and hear it in its finished form. We were very lucky that Dr. Scott Lehman, the Music Director and Organist at First Mennonite, availed himself to us to demonstrate the instrument and play a few things. So, after I had a chance to crawl around in the chambers and take enough pictures to satisfy myself, Rich directed me to a choir pew in the middle of the chancel, and we we got to hear and feel the power and beauty of this magnificent instrument. I am totally impressed. As Dr. Lehman played some Mendelssohn, the Widor Toccata, and some hymns, I marveled at the talent he brings to performing on this instrument, and at the same time I realized that Richard's talent in building and voicing this organ shines with equal brilliance. I admit to being woefully incapable of any technical ability to describe what I heard, but I have heard enough organs to know what I like. This instrument is very satisfying. It has plenty of foundation, indeed enough to transmit it to the seat of your pants. The upper registers are bright and clear without being painful to the ears in the least. The central principal portions of tone can be pleasantly full or diminished to whatever level the music requires. The flutes are gorgeous, some with pronounced chiff, which seems to be a personal signature of Rich's voicing, as evidenced by recordings of some of his other instruments. To my ear, this organ is a very complete package, with enough flexibility to serve worship, yet plenty strong and complete enough to perform many types of concert repertoire. First Mennonite is very lucky to have a Schneider organ, and fortunate to have Dr. Scott Lehman as their organist. I know Rich has announced it before, but I would like to remind everyone that there will be a re-dedicatory recital at First Mennonite on April 27. I would urge everyone who can to make the trip to hear this very special organ. You won't be sorry. By the way, although Rich has given me credit as an installer on the web page for this organ, I do not actually work for him. I am promoting this instrument because I think it is an excellent example of what is coming from small modern organ builders. I think Rich Schneider has every reason to be proud.   Respectfully Submitted Mike Gettelman

(back) Subject: Anglican hymnals From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Tue, 28 Jan 2003 18:55:09 -0800   Um ... no comment (grin).   The 1933 revised edition of The English Hymnal is the standard by which all others are judged. RVW was the musical editor. The original edition was 1906.   Other standard Anglican hymnals are:   Hymns Ancient and Modern - try to get the old A & M Standard Edition ... I think it's still available. If not, it turns up on used book sites from time to time.   The Episcopal Hymnal 1940 - may be out of print ... check with your local Episcopal Church, which I believe is St. Peter's ... the organist used to style himself "Organist of St. Peter's in ROME" (grin).   The Episcopal Hymnal 1916 is also a fine book ... it turns up fairly regularly on used book sites. In some ways, better than the Hymnal 1940, particularly for service-music.   FORGET the Episcopal Hymnal 1982 ... not worth the paper it's printed on, not unlike the new Lutheran books (grin).   Songs of Syon was a favorite for choral foundations and collegiate chapels in England ... a fine book, long out of print, but I've found full music editions from time to time on used book sites.   I have heard good things about the new Irish Church Hymnal, but I haven't seen one yet.   Cheers,   Bud       Pepehomer@aol.com wrote: > > I just received the CD "O For A Thousand Tongues" from the OHS catalog = from Grace Episcopal in Charleston, SC and I can't stop listening to it. = I keep finding myself backing up to "Christ Is Made The Sure Foundation" = with the tune Westminster Abbey (which, by the way, is NOT the tune used = in any of the Lutheran Hymnals yet - they HAVE made it the tune for the = upcoming hymnal.) > > SO I decided that I would like to purchase an Episcopal or Anglican = hymnal.

One entry is the "English Hymnal With Tunes: 1933" - underneath was the following: > > People who bought this book also bought: > 2003 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Wall Calendar > 2003 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Boxed Calendar > 2003 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Large Wall Calendar > 2003 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Engagement Calendar > 2003 Playboy Lingerie Wall Calendar Time Warner Publishing   Speaking as a lifelong Anglican, I have to say that I must be in some way atypical, since while I do possess a copy of the English Hymnal with = Tunes, I do not have any of the above calendars. In fact the only calendar I = have on my wall is entitled   2003 Outhouses by Famous Architects   This has paintings of "privvies" in a dozen different architectural = styles, including Thronehenge, Flushing Water (designed by Frank Lloyd Wright), = and the Hancock's John Building, etc. It was sent me by my wife's uncle. I have no idea where he got it.   John Speller St. Mark's Episcopal Church, St. Louis.
