(back) Subject: The life and adventures of a mediocre substitute From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@direcway.com> Date: Sun, 11 Apr 2004 20:20:21 -0500   The life and adventures of a mediocre substitute   As I have alluded in past posts, the daytime paying job has been a bear, and I have felt out of sorts, not having a mission and having abandoned my hobby. Sure, there are plenty of dragons to fight, but my boss has me on a leash (make that a short chain tied to a redwood tree) and has given me a rusty letter opener and a nonworking stapler for my only weapons. I'm not one given to passivity, so it is very hard to sit by and see injustice pass by without kicking and screaming, and to have so many nonlawyer bosses running around not knowing what they are doing (sounds like a government bureaucracy, doesn't it?).   Anyway, I had not practiced organ much lately, and had decided that all those organ lessons and years at the console were for naught, the road that should not have been taken. Then out of the blue I got two phone calls in one week, and four Sunday substitute organist gigs, all with pipe organs. And a trip organcrawling presented itself, so voila! I'm trying to sit in the saddle again, albeit somewhat precariously.   I played 5th Sunday of Lent for the Lutherans (both traditional and contemporary services) on a Zimmer, and Palm Sunday for the Methodists on a Kenneth Jones tracker. Therefore, I was able to play "O mensch" and the Brahms and Bach settings of the "Herlich mich tut verlangen", as well as the Little Fugue in G minor for postlude, and some Dale Wood/Hancock/Rawsthorne interludes. That felt nice. Today on Easter Sunday I accompanied a brass ensemble and choir for two anthems with the Lutherans again.   Next weekend I shall get to see, hear and play (or more likely embarrass myself on) seven organs in 48 hours. My brother's inlaws at the gathering today asked why I would want to do that. I looked at them in consternation (my eyes glazed over from getting up at 4:00 to drive to P'cola) - how does one answer? "Because they are THERE."   Then comes a baptism of the firstborn of one of my former acolytes, all grown up and married (I played that wedding - remember the frantic Hammond advice gleaned from Bud?). After that is four grueling weeks at the fake piston organ (maybe I'll do a Boellman piece per week there), Memorial weekend with the Methodists again, and perhaps another Sunday gig with the Lutherans in June. What is really frightening is that I may make more money substituting this year than I made when a regular organist every Sunday two years ago.   Some people do crack and meth; I do organs, not very well, but still I do. They're very addictive, like chicken salad. There's no cure.   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com

(back) Subject: Historic Organ On TV From: "Keith Zimmerman" <kwzimmerman@alltel.net> Date: Sun, 11 Apr 2004 22:13:58 -0500   This might have been discussed, sorry if I'm asking for a repeat. . .   My in-laws mentioned to me that they watch a TV show this morning (Sunday) that included a spot on some historic organ by some German maker (they = tho't it began with a "B") that had been dismantled many years ago and stored. = In the recent past, this organ was taken from storage and restored by someone in Virginia who had restored an organ of this make before. They were = quite impressed with the story of the restoration and said that the organ was beautiful. That's all the details that my "non-organic" inlaws could relate.   I realize that most of us were in church in some capacity this Easter Sunday, so we missed this show. Nevertheless, would anybody know the details of this organ?   Thanks, Keith Zimmerman, M.D.
