(back) Subject: FW: OHS 2003 - 2nd Full Day - 6/21 From: "MARAUDER" <kmoyer@marauder.millersville.edu> Date: Sat, 12 Jul 2003 16:02:46 -0400   Permit a brief but heart-felt addition to Malcolm's wonderful comments on Saturday of the OHS convention: First, quoting Malcolm:   (big snip)   Bruce Cornely - Saturday, 21 June - THE HYMN SING Mahoning Presbyterian Church, Danville, PA   (another big snip)   We began with the hymn, "Wind who makes all winds that blow," for which I do not know the author. The tune was "Aberystwyth," which probably WAS one known to people of most if not all denominations.   (end of quotation from Malcolm)   This tune comes from the pen of one Joseph Parry --not to be confused with Charles Hubert Hastings Parry. Parry was Welsh, and as did many other Welshmen, he ended up in the "coal regions" of Pennsylvania, where many Welsh were miners, whether for coal or otherwise. (Important Welsh communities sprung up in various places at least in the Eastern U.S.; one thinks, for example, of Poultney VT with its Welsh Presbyterian church, where the mining had to do with slate instead of coal.)   Thus did the young Welsh-forn Joseph Parry find himself in Danville in 1854 at age 13. He eventually became music leader at the local Calvinist church, now known as Mahoning Presbyerian Church, studied for a bit in Geneseo NY, returned to Wales at one point, came back to Danville, was organist at (now) Mahoning Presbyterian Church, where our hymn sing took palce, and 1871 - 1873 conducted a music school there, In 1873 he returned to Wales as a music professor in several places. He wrote the tune "Aberystwyth" in 1879 in the town of that name, where he had become music professor at the newly-opened University College. In 1888 he moved on to University College in Cardiff.   It was tragically unclear to most of us at the OHS convention that we were singing this tune in the chuch where its composer Joseph Parry had been organist and music teacher. Mea culpa!! It was one of those details that "fell through the cracks." But Bruce Cornely, who had worked so hard at planning the hymn sing and who then led it, was subtly honoring Parry with this as the first hymn tune on the night's and the OHS's yearly hymn sing. One might well wonder if it is the "signature hymn" of that Presbyterian congregation.   The town of Danville is this year observing the centennial of Joseph Parry's death admists the series of events included in -- I believe --an annual town festival. A "Google" search for "Joseph Parry" will repay rich dividends, but I especially call to attention this one:   http://www.ironheritagefestival.net/   It details events of next week-end's festival 17 - 20 (Thursday - Sunday) festival, including musicians from Wales and a Welsh hymn singing on Sunday afternoon at 1:30 in Mahoning Presbyterian Chuch with a leader also from Wales. You think the OHS sings hynms like gang-busters? Welsh hymn singing is also legandary, and I am truly sorry to be tied to an organ bench -- I'm covering der Kappelmeister at St. Joseph's Church, Lancaster, that entire week-end -- and thus am unable to get there. Those who can get to Danville next week-end will be richly rewarded.   Karl E. Moyer Lancaster PA

Ended up going with a II/23 Walcker tracker from Germany; quite satisfactory so far. It's been praised courteously by Messrs. Schneider, Wechsler, and Hell of this and other lists.   But I should follow your advice; and, if I were in the market, I most definitely WOULD. I hope your going "the all pipe route" is for more than "the moment." I'm both prejudiced and ignorant on this subject (those things go together, don't they?) so cannot express anything that would sound like a "judgment."   Lots more on our organ at www.stlukesnyc.org   Alan

I BEG that someone is archiving this information. In at least two or three locations. Safely.   It's utterly PRICELESS.   Alan
