The recital starts at 8.30.

Two weeks ago I had to play a wedding. 20 minutes before the ceremony began -the groom already was there- a lady started to instruct the two = pages how to walk along the aisle to the altar carrying the rings and silver = coins (which symbolize the material goods the newlyweds have to share). The two kids - boy & girl, 5 to six years old- always went too fast and were giggling all the way and the lady went *nuts*! Again and again she started with the pages (to amusement of the guests) until the boy dropped the = basket with the coins, which rolled all over the church nave...   I was thankful that my job at weddings is so *uncomplicated* !!   When I am asked for a rehearsal (this happens very seldom) I tell that in that case I would have to double my fee because I have to go *twice* and play *twice*. The rehearsal subject always is quickly dropped. Sometimes = the people want to have a prove that I *really* can play and sing. With lots = of awful bad amateurs around in business I understand this request and tell them to come to my parish at afternoon mass and listen. I never saw a prospective client there, however...   Cheers Andres (who didn't play last friday's wedding disguised as Dracula after all, but spent 1-1/2 hours in Halloween traffic jam) =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.

(back) Subject: TRINITY EPISCOPAL, TOLEDO - WHAT HAPPENED? (x post) From: <ScottFop@aol.com> Date: Sun, 2 Nov 2003 09:01:02 EST   I was informed by a friend and colleague that the large Skinner/Schantz in =   Trinity, Toledo had been removed and that the church had been, um, = "remodeled." Well, looking at their website, that is indeed an understatement of = gigantic proportions.   WHAT happened to that beautiful, traditional old church? I know we need = to think about bringing people into worship these days, especially in urban churches. But for God's sake- at the sacrifice of the liturgy AND an = organ THAT SIZE just t9 appease some damn modernist's overweened ego and BAD taste??? =   Not only do they have the Eucharist in the "church," excuse me- WORSHIP SPACE, but they have banquets as well. What the hell is this?????? And = who is the IDIOT responsible for it???   Obviously, with not one but TWO grand pianos (front and back) and the = organ thrown out, their "music director" hasn't a clue about liturgical music. = And looking at the pictures and some of the "staff," I actually almost got = rather nauseous. Does anyone have any insight as to what happened to that = venerable old parish? REALLY SAD!   Lastly, what happened to the organ?   Scott F. Foppiano Cantantibus organis Caecilia Domino decantabat.    
(back) Subject: Athens concert hall From: "John Foss" <harfo32@yahoo.co.uk> Date: Sun, 2 Nov 2003 19:20:09 +0000 (GMT)   Dear list, Some members have pointed out to me that although the Athens Concert Hall organ has 5 manual divisions it is actually a 4 manual organ. I stupidly took the first Google reference I found - I checked the Klais site but although it has a photo of the organ it does not give the specification. I have been to the Megaron in Athens, but this was for an orchestral concert and I did not hear the organ or see the console on that occasion. Anyway, I am looking forward to this recital as it will be the first time I have heard the instrument, John Foss   =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D www.johnfoss.gr http://groups.yahoo.com/group/orgofftop/ Topics of the week : Farewell to an era - Concorde says goodbye 50 years ago Menu of the week : Moussaka   ________________________________________________________________________ Want to chat instantly with your online friends?

(back) Subject: Re:wedding rehearsals (sort-of) From: "Larry Wheelock" <llwheels@mac.com> Date: Sun, 2 Nov 2003 16:47:01 -0600     One of the Lutheran Churches i served in the past also had an in-house wedding manager who also happened to be the pastor's wife. At one wedding, I heard her repeating the rules to a professional photographer who was insisting that he was going to do things his way, not the church's. At one point in the service, the back half of the congregation and those of us in the gallery were treated to the sight of the photographer crawling on all fours down one of the aisles only to be captured halfway by the pastor's wife -- a portly woman who outweighed him by at least 100 pounds -- who grabbed the belt to his trousers and dragged him back to the narthex still on all fours, from whence she led him to the door and told him not to come back until the service was over. The front half of the congregation missed the show, but did notice the snickering.

For the prelude today, I played "Preludio Sine Nomine" from the Six Pieces of Herbert Howells. The Skinner strings and diapasons were in fine form this morning! For the offertory, I played the "In Paradisum" of Daniel-Lesur which I found on Clyde Holloway's recording of the Rice Fisk. Old Mr. Skinner shined through again with one of his lovely Doppelflutes. For the postlude, I played Charles Callahan's "Toccata on a Theme of Beethoven."
