Coincidentally, two other organists in RC churches in the area resigned = this past week and those jobs are for the asking. I wouldn't take either. Hostile working conditions? I'll give it another try where I am. Lots of hugs = and kisses this morning; should leave more often!     Bob

Give it a =B3thought,=B2 OK?   Alan, looking forward to an encouraging report on how things go for Christ the King, Advent, etc.

When you do the "bold" thing you are using HTML formatting that sometimes gets messed up by some people's email readers.   Please keep these settings in the future for this list.   Thanks   David -- **************************************** David Scribner Owner / Co-Administrator PipeChat   http://www.pipechat.org mailto:admin@pipechat.org

Allen Mills is appearing in a concert of Theatre organ Pops, Favorite Popular Standards, Music from Broadway & Hollywood, presented by the New York Military Academy and The New York Theatre Organ Society.   Everyone (except the handicapped) is welcome to attend Saturday, November 22, at 4 PM. The sponsors regret that the chapel auditorium is not handicap accessible.   All tickets are on sale at the door.. $8.00 general admission, $6.00 senior citizens and students   For info including directions, please call 845-457-5393 or 845-534-3710.   No, I have not played this theatre organ, but I have played the mighty Wurlitzer in the Bardavon in Poughkeepsie, NY.   Your scribe will be in New Brunswick, NJ, by that time, practicing on a different Moller, the 3 manual instrument at the Presbyterian Church of New Brunswick. I first played that particular Moller console while a student at Douglass College way back in the 1960's and will be substituting there Sunday the 23rd.   Also on Saturday the 22nd, which happens to be the 40th anniversary of the death of President John F. Kennedy, the Central Hudson Valley Chapter of the AGO (American Guild of Organists) is sponsoring three different sessions of Pedals, Pipes and Pizza to interest young pianists in playing the organ. One is in Newburgh at Union Presbyterian Church II Kimball/VanSeters), another in Middletown at Webb Horton Presbyterian Church (III Austin) and the third in Wappinger Falls at Zion Episcopal Church (III, looks like an Austin console) .   For further information about the pipe organs, please see the chapter's website at http://www.chvago.org . While you are at the website, please check out the AGO Regional Convention for regions II and III scheduled for June 22-25, 2005.   Cheers from the cool Hudson Valley of New York,   Pat Maimone patmai@juno.com (who retired from West Point in June)

The neat thing is that even if it is NOT good enough, it suffers ENLARGMENT very well, while ARIAL BLACK just gets furrier, but not = clearer.   Alan (YES, getting old stinks; I go for BIGGER [in inputting or reading] rather than for font change)   THANK YOU!   Alan, both big AND old    
(back) Subject: Beginning to Enjoy it Again From: <Innkawgneeto@cs.com> Date: Sun, 16 Nov 2003 20:47:36 EST   Friends, it's starting to feel good again...that is, serving the Lord in a =   church position.   As I may have mentioned, I began last month as Organist/Choirmaster at an historic Episcopal Church in Lakewood, NJ. The organ is a 40's vintage = Reuter, 13 rank unit organ, a tad wheezy, but still a nice instrument (which by = the way, is in its new chamber, built this summer). Plans are underway to = enlarge it to about 35 to 40 ranks within the next year (there are pipes covering = every nook and cranny of the basement).   Anyway, at the conclusion of the choral eucharist today, I actually had people come up to watch me play the postlude, which RARELY happened at my = previous post.   And during the early service, there was a little girl whose older sister = was the acolyte. This little girl was a typical youngster, fidgety and all. However, when something interested her, she would move to the front pew = and sit there to watch...complete with the obligatory kicking of the modesty = rail.   I say that because, she only came to the front pew 2 times...during the service to watch the institution of communion, and prior to that, to more = or less watch me play the prelude (Musical Clocks, by Haydn).   While the modesty rail kicking annoyed me somewhat during the prelude, I became intensely aware of what she was doing during communion... INTENTLY watching. The kicking no longer seemed to annoy me. And I found myself = gratified that a little girl was soaking up what I was doing (I'm hoping it was = ministry to her).   Perhaps I was a closet Anglican all these years after all <grin>.   It feels GOOD. Thank you, Lord.   Neil by the Bay    
(back) Subject: Glad you're back in service, Neil! From: "Kealypaul" <kealypaul@yahoo.com> Date: Sun, 16 Nov 2003 18:18:01 -0800 (PST)   Neil, I enjoyed your posting. So good to see ministry flow through the things you do. See, people DO listen when you play!   I am studying Haydn this month.   I research a certain composer each day of the month, and this month it's Haydn.   Hopefully, by the end of the month I can sort of feel that person as family, and at the end of the year I have 12 new "friends."   Somehow I never slowed down enough to enjoy studying composers in College (date of birth, death, location, whether romantic or classicist, etc., but today it's a thrill.   I repeat the same books and chapters every day, and learn more that had escaped me in the past (sort of like when a familiar Scripture passage jumps out at you as if for the first time although you may have memorized it you have read it so much.   =3D=3D=3D   My question is if you record your services. I'd love a simple cassette of you performing the Clocks, or any of his music, if it's available.   I have some of his professional symphonic works, but it would be so cool to hear something that happened on a church instrument the way he would be pleased to hear his music in service today (and I promise not to kick the modesty rail as I listen to you).   Just thought I'd ask. If it's available, let me know cost, etc.   Paul E. Kealy PO Box 3890 Del Rosa, CA 92413-3890   __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? Protect your identity with Yahoo!
