This goes back to a Presidential Decree of Gral. Guzman Blanco (who ruled the country from 1870 to 1888). Today, this obbligation boiled down to play the Anthem only on High = Holiday Masses.

(back) Subject: Vibrato and Pastoral Care From: <quilisma@cox.net> Date: Sun, 04 Apr 2004 12:50:59 -0700   I don't quite know where to start, so I guess I'll start by saying that a seminary course in PASTORAL CARE should be REQUIRED of ALL church musicians.   I've never been in a position where I could screen VOLUNTEERS. Nor have I ever been in a position where I could DISMISS volunteers at will.   When I was organist/choirmaster at Christ Episcopal Church in Dallas in the 1970s, I had a DELIGHTFUL professionally-trained soprano, age 80, who had been soloist at Park Ave. Synagogue in NYC, the Cathedral in St. Louis, etc. etc. etc. ... she KNEW she no longer had the breath control ... she sang softly and tried her best to blend.   One day, she came up to me and said, "Bud, I'd like to sing the Rossini 'Inflammatus' one more time before I die ... can you transpose it down without spoiling the choir parts?"   I said, "sure," and we did it, to everyone's delight. She died not long after.   Now, my point: neither faith nor morals were offended by my doing that. It made her happy, the congregation loved it, and the choir had fun learning the choral parts.   Someone remarked on one of the lists that music should never be chosen for "sentimental" reasons. I disagree. Yes, faith IS intellectual, but it is also emotional. If PASTORAL CARE demands that I play "In the Garden" or "Jesus Loves Me", I won't hesitate to do it.   An elderly couple once requested that "La Mer" be played at their 50th anniversary Mass. They told me the story ... they had danced to it the night before he shipped out to fight in Korea. I improvised a chorale-prelude on it at Communion, and then gave it the full "Mighty Wurlitzer" treatment for the postlude, vibratos throbbing (grin). Everybody who knew the story was touched by the gesture. It didn't cost me anything, other than some practice time to work up the theatre organ styling.   Oh, I was taught the austere objective approach to liturgy and music well and truly in the 1960s. I've lived long enough to see how that approach can HURT people. My soprano in Dallas LIVED to sing in the choir ... it was virtually the only time she got out of the house. I wouldn't have been much of a PASTORAL musician if I'd denied her that. HER well-being WAS more important than the sound of the choir.   One of the things I've learned in 50 years of being a church organist is that PEOPLE come first.   Cheers,   Bud

The Ministry of Music needs to "uplift" "inspire" "bless" "motivate" "move" as you said, but also, I believe, occasionally to challenge. Lord knows there is enough "mindless" "unchallenging" un-startling" "predictable, "banal", "sleep-inducing" and "comforting for the comfortable" music out there already.   Larry Wheelock Director of Music Ministries Kenwood United Methodist Church Milwaukee, Wisconsin musicdirector@kenwood-umc.org
