(back) Subject: Re: [LONG] Joyce in Jackson, Part 1 of 2 From: <OMusic@aol.com> Date: Sun, 22 Aug 2004 21:39:55 EDT   We drove from Denton, TX to Jackson, MS, 411 miles, leaving Denton at = 8:00AM and arriving in Jackson at 5:00PM. We pack light and sleep cheap, so we stayed in Motel 6. Arriving at the First Baptist Church, all the back = seats were full. We started to sit on the side close to the front, next to a very = large person in an elegant purple dress with hat that matched and very large = hands and feet. Then we noticed those seats were reserved for the choir. We = ventured on down, finding seats on the second row middle, right in front of the = organ. The Call to Worship was "Great Is The Lord" by Dean Angell and Rose Marie =   Cooper. Dean Angell was the Dean of the School of Music at OBU and Ms. = Cooper attended OBU the same time as my sister. I found a copy of the music on a =   table and asked the Music Director if It would be all right if I put it in = my program. He consented, so I have that momento, as well as a signed = program by Dr. Jones. Even though I enjoyed the choir music very much, there was not a balance between the choir, organ and piano. As Glenda (whom I met after = the concert, along with Sand and Nathan and Glenda's husband) is going to = review Dr. Jones concert, I'll wait and read her comments. On the way home we = stopped at Sand's church in Monroe, LA, played the 15 rank Moller tracker and had = lunch with him. This was most enjoyable. We had a rather uneventful ride home, = with Keith driving and me sleeping most of the way. We were home by 10:00 PM = and I was in bed before midnight, having to arise earlier than usual to play for =   the Sunday service. Our next trek to an organ concert will probably be in October to Wichita, KS, to hear the Mighty Wurlitzer. Lee

So many wonderful instruments.   Without a doubt, the top of most anyone's list would have to be: St. Thomas Church, Fifth Avenue, Choir of Men and Boys and the 2 wonderful =   organs there (Taylor & Boody and Aeolian Skinner);   Temple Emmanuel, this is truly a marvelous experience of worship. You = MUST hear the cantor, whose name escapes me at the moment.   If you would like a little less liturgical and more gospel vein, may I = humbly suggest the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir. For what they do, they are superb.   Then of course: Cathedral of ST. John the Divine, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Church of St. Ignatius Loyola, Riverside Church, Princeton University Chapel West Point Cadet Chapel   the list is virtually endless.   If I may be so bold, if you wanted to travel by train to Red Bank, New Jersey, my new post has a truly delightful Hradetsky tracker organ, which = I will begin playing THIS coming Sunday morning (United Methodist Church of Red = Bank).   Welcome to the US and to the New York Area.   Neil Brown

(back) Subject: Re: Visiting New York From: "Liquescent" <quilisma@cox.net> Date: Sun, 22 Aug 2004 20:29:37 -0700   You can find a sampling of interesting organs on the New York City AGO website:   http://www.nycago.org/html/NYCOrgans.html   Not to be missed:   The rebuilt Skinner at St. Mary the Virgin Episcopal Church The Mander at St. Ignatius RC Church the Appleton at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (?) the smaller Mander at St. Agnes RC Church the rebuilt Casavant at Temple Emmanu-El the behemoth Skinner at St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church The Taylor and Boody at St. Thomas Episcopal Church the rebuilt Beckerath at St. Michael's Episcopal Church   There are also some worthy historic instruments, but they're sort of out of the way. Ask Sebastian Gluck at   <TubaMagna@aol.com>   He can point you to most of them. He's curator of the historic 3m tracker in Old St. Patrick's Cathedral, and of the Casavant at the Temple.   St. Patrick's RC cathedral is a fun sound, but it's not the way Kilgen left it.   The enormous Skinner at The Riverside Church is much improved since they improved the acoustics of the church.   There are more 32' stops in Manhattan than anywhere else on the planet (grin).   The Casavant at St. Ignatius of Antioch Episcopal Church on West End Ave. is unremarkable, but the liturgy and music are some of the finest in the city. Ditto St. Thomas. Ditto Church of the Resurrection (Episcopal), though they have a temporary electronic instrument until they raise the money to replace their moribund pipe organ. The music at St. Mary the Virgin seems to have made something of a comeback under the new young organist/choirmaster, though the (paid) choir is still too small for that enormous building.   The big Skinner at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine is awaiting repairs, following a fire outside the north transept. I believe they're using an Allen currently.   Little Church Around the Corner (Church of the Transfiguration, Episcopal) has a 3m Fisk and a choir of men and boys, but the church and the acoustics are rather strange.   There is a charming small 3m Holtkamp in Corpus Christi RC Church up by Columbia University, in a lovely Georgian chapel.   Cheers,   Bud       hunts@senet.com.au wrote:   > Hello there, > > I have been subscribed on an off to PipeChat this year, reading it > regularly as I find many of the conversations very interesting, and > will hopefully join in any time soon! > > However, I have noticed that this is a reasonably USA-dominated > discussion board.

We are not ALL Americans - there is a small contingent of Brits and other nationalities. When you visit New = York, you must pay a visit to one of this list's members, (and also of = organchat), Alan Freed. He is based at St. Lukes on 46th Street, though not the = organist there as he is a retired pastor, but he can show you the organ and = introduce you to the organist. There is a (small) possibility that I might be visiting Adelaide next = year - so I may be able to look you up!!
