(back) Subject: Re: Speaking of Funerals From: "Roy Kersey" <rkersey@tds.net> Date: Fri, 10 Dec 2004 11:24:09 -0500   Dear Charlie and Group, Reading things like Charlie's post today and Glenda's frequent = offerings makes me wish for a "The Best of Pipechat" Anthology. Very = interesting stuff, the stuff of our human experience. I believe the quote is "In my father's house there are many = mansions." There is just no explaining the various cultures and musical = preferences growing up in our pluralistic society. I think that rather = than get upset that others don't share our preferences, we should be = content to continue to do what we do well and try to draw others to it. I = believe that good traditional church music for organ and with organ is = going to be one way that people worship as time goes by. It may end up = being a niche, but a very viable one. Some of our "boutique" builders = seem to be doing fine, so you know that there are people who want to see = these instruments built and played. I think it makes far more sense to = advocate for what we are doing than to try to down what others are doing. = This music hasn't survived for 100, 200, 300 or 400 years by coincidence. = It is great stuff and if you bring it to people, many of them will = respond. If there are places where they use Praise bands a! nd tapes, that's OK, too. Let's be tolerant but tend to our own gardens.

I'm at work, and did a quick online search of 1 Thessalonians 4, but couldn't find reference to the line "But I would not have you be ignorant, Brethren."   Perhaps it's a translation issue? There is a reference to Brethren at that beginning of the American Standard and King James versions.   Best regards, friend.   Daniel       -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org] On Behalf Of Alan Freed Sent: Friday, December 10, 2004 10:47 AM To: PipeChat Subject: Re: "Night of Snobbery"   On 12/10/04 9:14 AM, "Daniel Hancock" <dhancock@brpae.com> wrote:   > What is this--a solo or an anthem?

It's a setting of the Epistle from the Anglican Requiem Mass (1 Thessalonians 4:13ff) for SATB or TTBB (both divisi) ... I have both versions; It's long out of print, but I believe somebody mentioned that whoever owns Peterson's copyrights has a few copies left in stock of the SATB. I saved that e-mail ...

(back) Subject: But I Would Not Have You To Be Ignorant, Brethren From: "Liquescent" <quilisma@cox.net> Date: Fri, 10 Dec 2004 09:22:23 -0800   Here's the whole thing directly from the Prayer Book, which omits the opening "But" ... as do I in performance. I simply tie the first two chords together and begin with "I". The Peterson setting ends with "and so shall we ever be with the Lord."   Cheers,   Bud   The Epistle. 1 Thessalonians iv. 13.   I WOULD not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.   Daniel Hancock wrote:   > Hi Alan-- > > Thank you for the reference.

(back) Subject: Nobel organist From: "Jarle Fagerheim" <jarle_fagerheim@yahoo.co.uk> Date: Fri, 10 Dec 2004 18:23:58 +0100 (CET)   The Nobel Peace Price award broadcast from Oslo Town Hall today included a "Wedding March from S=F8rfold", played by pianist Bj=F8rn Andor Drage and violinist Susanne Lundeng.   What wasn't mentioned is that Bj=F8rn Andor Drage is also a phenomenal organist, conductor, and composer. Oslo should really have built a pipe organ for its Town Hall to accomodate such artists!   - Jarle http://jarle.moo.no
