(back) Subject: Oratorio: The Redeemer? From: "Charles Peery" <cepeery@earthlink.net> Date: Sat, 7 Jun 2003 06:04:58 -0400   A choirmember has given me one yellowed copy of "The Redeemer, an Oratorio for Lent" by Martin Shaw. Published by the B.F. Wood Music Company, 88 St. Stephen Street, Boston, Mass. (London: Joseph Williams, Ltd., 29 Enford Street, Marylebone, W.1) Copyright 1945. For organ and SATB choir.   He claims that this very well may be the only copy left in existence, that he has called the publishers and it's so long out of print that nobody knows what he's talking about. It says full orchestra parts are (were) listed for rental, but those, too, are lost. He is musically astute and pretty thorough, so I'd tend to believe that he has done the legwork.   He's pushing for me to look at it and consider a local performance. Except for his dedication and serious personality, I might tend to be skeptical. There's always the thought that, if the work has fallen into such oblivion, it might well have deserved to do so. So, while I play through it and decide for myself, I thought I would write to this list and see if anyone has any familiarity with the work. (Sorry for the oblique organ relevance, but I know we have listers in the UK, and I wanted to appeal to them.)   Thanks,   Chuck Peery Cincinnati

The instrumental parts may = not be available, but the complete score should be, and unlike the U.S., copyright in the UK requires mandatory deposit in six places: the British Library in London, the libraries of Oxford and Cambridge Universities in England, a Library in Wales, the National Library in Scotland, and the National Library of Ireland. In my experience, one of these organizations will probably be able to provide you a copy of the complete score, and of the six institutions, I've found the prices quoted by Cambridge and Oxford University Libraries to be the most reasonable. Your experience may be different.   I am almost certain the full score is available, but you may have to re-engrave it to get the parts.   ns

From: <patmai@juno.com> Date: Sat, 7 Jun 2003 11:45:27 -0400   Dear Glenda and PipeChatters,   Certainly, Glenda, I shall be happy to say a prayer for you for playing the organ in FL this coming Sunday.   Since this will be the first Sunday of my retirement, I have big decision to make.. where shall I worship on Pentecost Sunday? NYC... St. Luke's, St. Bart's, Madison Ave. Pres? at a colleague's church in Poughkeepsie, NY or a friend's in Teaneck, NJ? or listen to last week's sermon and some music from Madison Ave Pres on WQXR at 8 AM Sunday?   The first date for which I have been asked and have agreed to sub is June 29th. June 15th I shall be at the AGO Convention in Salt Lake City. Three other summer Sundays in the Hudson Valley of NY have been requested.. However, I have not yet finished removing 27+ years' worth of music and memorabilia from my office... Perhaps I am down to the last 10-15 years or so.. ;-) Prayers for success in accomplishing this difficult mission would be appreciated. Deadline is Wed the 11th of June..   Pat Maimone patmai@juno.com (whose son Mark is quite involved with the Mars Exploration Rover to be launched from FL this Sunday afternoon, weather permitting..)   On Fri, 06 Jun 2003 19:33:46 -0500 Glenda <gksjd85@direcway.com> writes: > I am preparing to play my first Sunday service in a year.

He = has been a soloist in six prior OHS conventions, and his seventh promises to = be no less exciting.   He'll play the 1928 E. M. Skinner at the "Chapel" as they call it, actually the church building in current use, at Salem Lutheran Church, Lebanon, on Friday evening, 20 June, to close the first full day of the convention. His program:   Fantasy and Fugue in C minor - Bach Concerto in F, Op. 4, No. 5 - Handel The Cuckoo - Daquin Dreams - Hugh McAmis Suite in E Major - Everett Titcomb Fanfare d'Orgue - Harry Rowe Shelley   Intermission   Grand Choeur No. 2 - Alfred Hollins Songs of Faith and Penitence - Leo Sowerby (three of them, with a soprano assisting) Impromptu - Gaston Dethier Improvisation on an Irish Air - Norman Coke-Jephcott   Talk about music we "never hear!!" Or composers too largely forgotten!! (Indeed, does anyone ever play Dethier's "Christmas" any more?)   This will come at the close of a day that hears Aggie Armstrong on a = Hook and Hastings, two angelic Tannenbergs in Littiz, and the large = three-manual A. B. Miller in Lebanon, plus a Pennsylvania Dutch supper in Lebanon. = The day will provide marvelous variety of styles of music and instruments, and while I'll be busy with a bunch of other things for the convention, it's a day I'll not want to miss -- including the shoo fly pie!!   Cordially,   Karl E.

(back) Subject: Messiaen (X-posted) From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Sat, 07 Jun 2003 18:10:47 -0700   A discussion on another list prompts my occasional rant about Messiaen:   He didn't spring full-blown from the organ-loft of La Trinite (grin). He took off in a different DIRECTION, to be SURE, but he STILL had a CONTEXT: the French late romantic and post-romantic school of organ playing and composition, as epitomized by Tournemire, Langlais, Durufle and Dupre.   In my day (the early 1960s ... yes, we had electricity) (grin) conservatories taught virtually NONE of those composers, except occasionally Durufle and the Dupre g minor Prelude and Fugue ... and VERY occasionally the Final to the Vierne 1st ... the German Romantics? Fuggedaboudit! Organ literature, as far as we knew, jumped from Cesar Franck to Olivier Messian, with nothing much of any consequence IN = BETWEEN.   I never learned much Messiaen; it made no SENSE to me.   AFTER college, I had a couple of positions with really fun romantic organs and spacious acoustics, and I started EXPLORING Tournemire and Langlais in particular, AS WELL AS Vierne and Widor.   HELLO! *Now* Messiaen made SENSE. It wasn't any EASIER to learn, but I could get my MIND around it. From Widor to Vierne to Tournemire to Langlais to Messiaen, at least, was a somewhat logical progression.   I LOVE all the blues-notes in Vierne ... "le jazz hot" was all the rage in Paris in the 1920s-1930s. Vierne died in 1937, so he would have heard = it.   Another thing that helped greatly was to take the scores and enlarge them to 11 x 17 ... my eyesight is poor, and the additional white space made those clusters ever so much easier to puzzle out. I did the same thing with those dreadful "Radio City" editions of Vierne and Widor ... THAT made a BIG difference.   Cheers,   Bud
