It's called "Te Deum: The Church and Music" by Paul Westermeyer. I haven't actually read most of it yet, but we're using it for my Worship and Hymnology class. It seems to have a very complete history though.   Shelley   >>> pianoman1@ntlworld.com 09/04/03 4:02 AM >>> Hi folks,   My Dad has been asked to write a short article on the history of church music.

(back) Subject: carillons From: "Randolph Runyon" <runyonr@muohio.edu> Date: Thu, 04 Sep 2003 10:00:45 -0400   I thought I'd chime in on this thread, since it has branched out into carillons. A couple of years ago a carillon was installed on the Miami University campus in Oxford, Ohio, where I teach French. Unfortunately, it's not a touch-sensitive instrument. It has real bells, 55 of them, but they are activated from a regular keyboard; there is a second keyboard = above it (so the thing looks like an organ console minus the pedals) that plays = a digital string sound through loudspeakers. I had nothing to do with the planning for the instrument, which was pretty much forced on the = university by a donor, else I would have tried to talk them into building a real carillon, with baton-shaped touch-sensitive keys. But in the second year = of operation they persuaded me to become university "carillonneur" and I've been doing recitals on it, on the occasional Sunday at 2 in the afternoon. In addition, last year I recorded 150 songs that it plays automatically. None of the music written for a real carillon works on this instrument, as dynamics are not possible. To make things worse, the lower the bell's pitch, the bigger and therefore the louder the bell, so it's all topsy-turvy. You can play several bells at once, as many as your fingers can handle, but the lower pitches will always be louder than the higher ones. So you can't exactly play hymn-like four-part harmony. I have to improvise my own arrangements, usually playing the melody in the bass or tenor range and suggesting the harmony sometimes in the treble and = sometimes on the synthesizer. I've found that what the people who come to hear the Sunday afternoon concerts like best are old songs they can recognize, = e.g., Irving Berlin and other tunes from 1915-1960 or thereabouts. Piano bar music in an outdoor setting, sort of.   I'm wondering if anyone knows of any other carillons of this design and if so what they play.     Randy Runyon Music Director Zion Lutheran Church Hamilton, Ohio runyonr@muohio.edu
