(back) Subject: Austin available to accompany suggested settings of same text From: <patmai@juno.com> Date: Mon, 9 Jun 2003 20:55:45 -0400   Dear Pipechatters, After Felix Hell's recital and THE wedding and packing another 10 boxes, I am ready to look at a request from Richard Erickson of the Choralist for his 30-voice choir which can perform repertoire of fairly moderate difficulty.   Hope that your creative minds are ready to reply to this request for settings with organ accompaniment or piano accompaniment. He said that there is an Austin organ available with few pistons..   He seeks SATB settings of the same text by two different composers.. e.g., the GLORIA as set by Vivaldi and Poulenc, but NOT such extended works..   Q: Who else besides Franck and Lewandowski wrote settings of Psalm 150?   Q: Who else besides Brahms and Vaughan Williams wrote settings of Psalm 84 "How Lovely Are Thy Dwellings" ("O How Amiable are Thy Dwellings") .   Psalm 23 .. Rutter (from his "Requiem") needs oboe, also Schubert... Virgil Thomson "My Shepherd Will Supply My Need" You may write to Richard Erickson directly at reesings@earthlink.net or I will be happy to forward any list replies..   Thank you kindly!   Pat Maimone patmai@juno.com (who had her very first Sunday off and spent it with Mom at Monroe Village in central NJ)   Richard Erickson reesings@earthlink.net From: Date: Sun, 8 Jun 2003 21:22:33 -0400 To: choralist@lists.colorado.edu Subject: Settings of the Same Text Suggestions   I am thinking of presenting a program next May of "choral doubles", that is a series of choral settings of the same text by two different composers. I am beginning to get ideas but would be interested to hear from some of you as to your suggestions. The choir I have is a thirty voice adult chamber choir, mostly avocational singers, who are capable of singing repertoire of fairly moderate difficulty. A good piano is available as is an Austin organ with limited pistons. Some instrumentalists could be hired if necessary. I would like to have as many sets of two pieces that I can fit into a 90 minute program, so I am not interested in extended works.   Thank you in advance to all who will share their ideas.   Richard Erickson Connecticut Chamber Choir reesings@earthlink.net   ________________________________________________________________ The best thing to hit the internet in years - Juno SpeedBand!

(back) Subject: Re: Maine contracts From: "Colin Mitchell" <cmys13085@yahoo.co.uk> Date: Tue, 10 Jun 2003 04:43:47 +0100 (BST)   Hello Ross,   He he! Just when I thought incineration was a past concept...........how do you like your stake?   I have, over the years, suffered at the hands of some utterly demented men of the cloth. On the other side of the coin, I have worked with a few "gems".   The amount of grief which many organists suffered during the 80's was totally unacceptable. I know of organists....good organists....who were literally thrown out of their respective churches and replaced with little more than a skiffle group.   Fine organs have been destroyed to make way for a children's play pen or a "meeting room".   And where has this taken us?   The same tedious religion dressed up in festive clothes and masquerading as modernity. "Hip" clergy who think young people will be turned on by "Status Quo" who, it appears, are in their twilight years.   All this has been especially noticeable among the low church, evangelical brigade, whilst the high church catholics just carry on in their rather dim ways and spray the world with holy water wilst keeping down the flies with incense.   The poor old C of E is in a terrible mess; but one of its own making.   Fortunately, Christianity continues apace!   In fact, the situation got so out of hand that I just walked away from the C of E and I have never regretted that decision. All I see is dim witted, blinkered thinking which gives no credence to credible human understanding and scientific progress....it is the reformation all over again.   The same, of course, is true of the RC church where I play the organ, but they have one redeeming feature. They actually DO something and care enough to support people and make the world a marginally better place.   It is ironic that, as the well worn debate about homosexuality and worship continue, the C of E make outcasts of loyal servants and then self select their membership, their faith and their worship. To me, it is nothing more than a collection of irrelevant malacontents playing war games.   Strange but true, their hero,St Paul, gets away with murder!   Of one thing I am sure, we can thank God that Dr Carey has departed.   Regards,   Colin   PS: When I threw the hymn book at the curate, it went slow enough for him to catch it!   __________________________________________________ Yahoo!
