Just curious - the console looks like a twin to the HH I played for a few years at 2nd Church in Dorchester (Boston). That is a 3 manual tubular-pneumatic instrument from 1908.   Harry Martenas

The subject composition by David McKay Williams, was one of several recorded on the "King of Instruments" series of recordings, published by Aeolian-Skinner. We = believe this piece was performed by Roy Perry on the Aeolian-Skinner instrument in the First Presbyterian Church of Kilgore, Texas. Mr. William F Stephens was a student of Roy Perry, and went on to become = the Chief of the Reuter Installation Crew for many years. His wife, Mary Elizabeth Stephens is now organist at Trinity Episcopal church in = Lawrence, Ks, and is to play this piece herself on the three-manual Reuter organ = there in the near future. We are trying to locate a copy or duplicate audio recording of the Roy = Perry performance of the subject Williams piece. Please advise at your convenience if you can help us. Thank you very much.

(back) Subject: Liturgy & Music (Was Re: Wedding order of service) From: "Shirley" <pnst.shirley@verizon.net> Date: Sat, 07 Feb 2004 12:14:11 -0500   What Alan said!   I have found Lathrop's writings and teachings about liturgy fascinating. = Lathrop's books are available through Augsburg-Fortress, website: http://www.augsburgfortress.com. If you have an interest at all in how ou= r liturgies came to be, and an interested in being grounded in worship as well as musi= c, then these books are for you. You might want to start with "Holy Things".   There is an anthem (whose title escapes me) by a contemporary composer (whose name escapes me) whose dedication is in appreciation to Dr. Lathrop= for "Holy Things."   Another author to look into is Paul Westermeyer, who writes on issues faci= ng church musicians. Highly regarded. His publications are at the A-F websi= te as well.   --Shirley       On 6 Feb 2004 at 18:28, Alan Freed wrote:   > On 2/6/04 5:45 PM, "OMusic@aol.com" <OMusic@aol.com> wrote: > > > I seem to remember something about that wedding :-) Lee > > > Isn=B9t that strange, that you=B9d remember a thing like that?

I've never played it but his stuff is usually well done and quite serviceable.   Michael       -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org]On Behalf Of Robert Nickel Sent: Saturday, February 07, 2004 11:16 AM To: PipeChat Subject: Preludes on "Pleading Savior"     Anyone have suggestions for preludes based on the hymntune "Pleading Savior"?

(One gets to it from Start/Accessories/System Tolls. An= =20 alternate startup is to type and hold the Windows key and "r". The Run Menu= =20 will appear. Type "charmap" (without quotes) in the box and hit Enter.)=20 With it one can type all of the special character available on the=20 computer. You can get them either by select-copy-paste or by the Alt 0###=20 combinations. Note that the Alt key is held for all four numbers typed on=20 the keypad (not on the top row). For instance, Type ALT 0231 to get =E7=20 (lower case).   In MS Word you can get the same thing by typing CTRL "," (that's a=20 comma--no quotes) release the keys and type "c" (no quotes). Instead of the= =20 comma, use the CTRL single quote (both ' and ` for accents acute and=20 grave), tilde, and Shift colon for umlauts and Shift circumflex. It works=20 for upper and lower case. I haven't found any key combinations for =DF.   I think the ALT combinations are the easier to use since they work in=20 virtually all Windows applications. I can send a chart to anyone who wants= =20 a list of the combinations for commonly used characters if they email me.   Macintosh also has something similar but I have been away from the Mac=20 milieu for over seven years.   I hope this helps, and, yes, I am a geek.   Ross Coulson "Cole" Votaw -- Springfield, Ohio, USA   Paul wrote: >Karl, > How do you get the umlaut on the O.? >

I accompanied our director of = music many years ago, and have not been able to successfully locate this particular arrangement. It was for a solo voice.   Anyone have any ideas?   Thanks! Jeff
