(back) Subject: Salt Lake City AGO Convention From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@direcway.com> Date: Sun, 1 Jun 2003 08:41:18 -0500   This is a multi-part message in MIME format.   ------=3D_NextPart_000_0001_01C32819.97D75170 Content-Type: text/plain; charset=3D"us-ascii" Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit   Dear Bill and others going to the SLC Regional AGO convention:     Just from looking at the convention itinerary, it appears that Saturday or Sunday evening before the convention begins in earnest (June 14 or 15) may be the best for list members to get together before we all get dispersed, although I am open to alternative suggestions. If there is a lounge at the Plaza, I missed it, although I wasn't looking that hard (did my drinking before making it to SLC just in case). I am assuming there are drinking establishments just because all those Olympics-goers had to imbibe.     I suggest that we select an evening to meet at the Austin exhibit (with Bill to tell us where he will be), visit and maybe go to dinner together. There's an Indian restaurant in town - I've never had Indian food except other non-Indians' versions of curried chicken, so I'm game to try it or anything suggested. I know that the Lion House right on the corner of Temple Square has cafeteria-style but excellent American food (the best baked trout I have ever had) with homemade breads.     Glenda Sutton   gksjd85@direcway.com         ------=3D_NextPart_000_0001_01C32819.97D75170 Content-Type: text/html; charset=3D"us-ascii" Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable   <html>   <head> <META HTTP-EQUIV=3D3D"Content-Type" CONTENT=3D3D"text/html; =3D charset=3D3Dus-ascii">     <meta name=3D3DGenerator content=3D3D"Microsoft Word 10 (filtered)">   <style> <!-- /* Font Definitions */ @font-face {font-family:"Footlight MT Light"; panose-1:2 4 6 2 6 3 10 2 3 4;} @font-face {font-family:"Colonna MT"; panose-1:4 2 8 5 6 2 2 3 2 3;} /* Style Definitions */ p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal {margin:0in; margin-bottom:.0001pt; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} p.MsoEnvelopeReturn, li.MsoEnvelopeReturn, div.MsoEnvelopeReturn {margin:0in; margin-bottom:.0001pt; font-size:11.0pt; font-family:"Footlight MT Light";} a:link, span.MsoHyperlink {color:blue; text-decoration:underline;} a:visited, span.MsoHyperlinkFollowed {color:purple; text-decoration:underline;} p.MsoAutoSig, li.MsoAutoSig, div.MsoAutoSig {margin:0in; margin-bottom:.0001pt; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} span.EmailStyle18 {font-family:Arial; color:blue; font-weight:normal; font-style:normal; text-decoration:none none;} @page Section1 {size:8.5in 11.0in; margin:1.0in 1.25in 1.0in 1.25in;} div.Section1 {page:Section1;} --> </style>   </head>   <body lang=3D3DEN-US link=3D3Dblue vlink=3D3Dpurple>   <div class=3D3DSection1>   <p class=3D3DMsoNormal><font size=3D3D3 color=3D3Dblue face=3D3DArial =3D FAMILY=3D3DSANSSERIF><span style=3D3D'font-size:12.0pt;font-family:Arial;color:blue'>Dear Bill and = =3D others going to the SLC Regional AGO convention:</span></font></p>   <p class=3D3DMsoNormal><font size=3D3D3 color=3D3Dblue = face=3D3DArial><span =3D style=3D3D'font-size: 12.0pt;font-family:Arial;color:blue'>&nbsp;</span></font></p>   <p class=3D3DMsoNormal><font size=3D3D3 color=3D3Dblue = face=3D3DArial><span =3D style=3D3D'font-size: 12.0pt;font-family:Arial;color:blue'>Just from looking at the convention itinerary, it appears that Saturday or Sunday evening before the =3D convention begins in earnest (June 14 or 15) may be the best for list members to =3D get together before we all get dispersed, although I am open to alternative suggestions.&nbsp; If there is a lounge at the Plaza, I missed it, =3D although I wasn&#8217;t looking that hard (did my drinking before making it to SLC = =3D just in case).

(back) Subject: Bruce Cornely's new hymn for OHS convention From: "MARAUDER" <kmoyer@marauder.millersville.edu> Date: Sun, 01 Jun 2003 14:46:52 -0400   Dear Y'All,   I'm sitting here looking at Bruce Cornely's new-created hymn for this month's OHS convention. Written in memory of the beloved Alan Laufmann, Bruce has entitled the tune "Laufmann," a most fitting thing to do. Alan would be pleased, I feel certain.   Bruce includes a descant for willing folks in the congregation to sing, and the entire hymn will be part of the packet of materials Bruce will = have in our hands at the Saturday evening annual OHS hymn sing at Mahoning Presbyterian Church in Danville PA. .   Amazingly, the church was served for two blocks of time by Joseph = Parry, who later composed the tune "Aberystwyth." Parry returend to Wales and actually wrote the tune there. Bruce has chosen a hymn with that tune = as the opening item of the hymn sing, and it will be an especially moving experience to sing that hymn where Parry served as music director.   This hymn sing will be a high point for me in the convention, I'm sure. I think lots of other folks will find it so, too.   Cordially,   Karl E. Moyer Lancaster PA

But has Bruce composed a chorale-prelude on Laufmann?   Tee hee. Seriously, I'm very impressed. Even "proud" of Bruce. Or, more precisely, proud that I'm (even a little bit) acquainted (cyberly) with = him. I think a lot of very nice and careful thought has gone into all this.   Cheers!!!   Alan

I can't find an English translation ...=20 roughly:   "There was a man who made a great supper, and invited many: and when the=20 hour of supper was come, the servants said, those who were invited have=20 come; all is ready, alleluia."   Not exactly on Salve Regina, but the old WLSM "Postlude on All The Deo=20 Gratias" book has a couple of neat things on Mass IX.   Isn't one of the late Widor symphonies based on Salve Regina?
