The antiphon for the Psalm = following the First Reading "Into your hands I commend my spirit."

(back) Subject: RE: Holy Week music From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@direcway.com> Date: Sat, 8 Mar 2003 10:12:52 -0600   One must remember that on Palm Sunday we are not hailing Christ as the Jewish Messiah as the crowds that day did, nor are we memorializing their wrong take on what his ministry was all about. We are retracing the steps of Christ to the cross (a necessary part of his role as the greater spiritual Messiah), and part of that story is recalling the highs and lows (mostly the latter) experienced in those last days. If you think about it, this week was a great epiphany for the world - even his disciples thought he was a physical Savior to lead the Jewish people out from under Roman rule, and their expectations were turned upside down.   I too used to wonder about use of the crucifixion text on Palm Sunday, because there were a few more days when Christ preached, threw the moneychangers out of the Temple, and performed other acts that kept the crowd's expectations at a frenzied high. However, on Palm Sunday Christians are being brought full circle to focus on the magnitude of the sacrifice. I've noticed that Episcopalians around here (and I'm Episcopalian, so can say this) don't really like to be reminded of this part any more than they have to (confining it to Holy Week), and pooh-pooh the other Protestant denominations who do.   I hate to trivialize the point by a trite phrase, but "no pain, no gain" seems to fit. What is Easter without Holy Week? God's gift did not come without great cost. At this point in the story Jesus himself is realizing what he is going to encounter, and experiences human trepidation.   That's why I always tried to plan the music carefully to emphasize the meaning of Holy Week on Palm Sunday - most of those present on Palm Sunday won't be around the rest of the week.   Sorry about the sermon. I think I will miss Holy Week this year, not being on the bench, because a solemn Holy Week made Easter so much more joyous.   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com

BarFly, the abc package for Macintosh, has the fonts and information on using abc to enter and print Gregorian Chants. Other packages may have the Gregorian Chant fonts built in also. There has been discussion of this on the abc users list in the last few days.   abc is a ascii text input format that can be used to send music in e-mails as straight ascii text, and the various software packages will output MIDI, printed music pages, or both. Most of these packages are freeware and some are shareware. (Be sure to use a multi-voice package for organ music.)   Later,   Mickey   ---- Mickey E. Sadler Dublin, Ohio

Acclaratories in [brackets] are from me.   The author of the article refers (among other sources) to 1844 letters = from Aristide Cavaille-Coll to his father Dominique, quoted in the biography by Cecile and Emmanuel Cavaille-Coll ("Aristide Cavaille-Coll. Ses origines, = sa vie, ses oevres"); and to 1856 letters from Aristide Cavaille-Coll to Nicolas Jacques Lemmens, published by Norbert Dufourcq in "L'Orgue" Nr 57, Oct-Dec 1950 (Paris).     Aristide Cavaille-Coll made two journeys to Germany, one in 1844, one in 1856. He visited several instruments, but I will refer only to his = opinions about *Walcker* organs.   In 1844 he visited Eberhard Friedrich Walcker in Ludwigsburg and stated: "This is a man of merit!". Then he visited Stuttgart where the Stiftskirche organ was under construction, and the Walcker organ in the St. Pauls church in Frankfurt, which was very simmilar. His opinion about the latter instrument: "It's a beautiful organ, but ever cold [in sound I guess] as a German. Majestic foundation stops, meager reeds, weak solo stops, the whole sound [Pleno?] a little unstable; the lungs [wind supply] are weak, for that the softness and mildness of the sound from this instrument". (...) "75 stops, three manuals, two pedal keyboards: all this impresses by numbers. But, = like a single french soldier is worth as five soldiers of any other nation, an [french] organ with 15 stops but five different wind pressures has more force and sound diversity than this colossal instrument. Nevertheless = there are good things in this organ, but its lungs are weak: a pretty man with consumption".   Later on, A.C-C. said about Walcker: "I found in Mr. Walcker of = Ludwigsburg more investigation spirit, invention capacity and ability to solve mechanical and accoustical problems of the instruments of this time. But = the whole [pleno] sound of his organs lacks clarity".   In 1856 he visited the (Walcker) organ in the Ulmer Munster. He made = several critics about the placement of the organ there. Although he was impressed = by the organ facade he found that the ornaments were far too detailistic. The organ (4 manuals, two pedals, 100 stops) impressed him althogether. "It seems to be that Herr Walcker put together in this organ all the artistic improvements that were achieved in our times, many of them his own contributions". Further on he mentions the cone pallet chest that was developed by Merklin [who worked with Walcker and became independent in Brussels]. About free reeds his opinion was: "They are fair beautiful in sound. I say *fair* beautiful because I prefer the quick response of the normal reeds, which = we manufacture better than the germans". He makes some observation about the Crescendo that was alledgedly developed by Merklin too. (According to = Werner Walcker-Mayer the first crescendo was installed at the Stuttgarter Stiftskirche organ) He concluded: "I am vane enough to believe that the organ in Ulm would = have achieved a better result with my wind supply system and owerblowing [harmonic] stops".   Source: Hans Steinhaus, "Deutsche Orgeln im Urteil von Aristide Cavaille-Coll", Acta Organologica Nr 14, Merseburger Verlag 1980.   Cheers Andres (just starting to learn french) =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D First was the cat, then was the Orgler.

Though my Mother's family was french, I tend to be more "german" in my own character<G>, but my voicing and preferences are a little more eclectic than either CC's or Walcker's <big GRIN this time>. I do however require our reeds to be very quick in speech (even the 32' CCCC). I guess that must be the "french" in me?     Jon
