I think the best known is by Martin Shaw, but I am not sure who published it. There is also a two-part setting, with optional organ accompaniment, by Sam Batt Owens and published by Selah.   John Speller   Jeff White wrote:   >I am looking for a version of the above song (text by Christina = Rossetti), >but I'm not sure who the arranger was.

(back) Subject: "Uzziah" From: "Stan Yoder" <vze2myh5@verizon.net> Date: Sun, 08 Feb 2004 08:42:48 -0500   Am I missing something here? Posts about this seem to infer that it's an = organ solo, or did they mean accompanying a choir? It is a choral work, albeit with a terrific = organ part.   Stan Yoder Pittsburgh   BTW, for another anthem with great independent accompaniment, try = Sowerby's "The Armor of God." Like Uzziah, it's a verbatim Biblical quote, this time Ephesians 6.

(back) Subject: Fifth Sunday after the Epiphany From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@direcway.com> Date: Sun, 08 Feb 2004 18:49:46 -0600   Fifth Sunday after the Epiphany   Back on Wednesday I had made a date with a fellow attorney to go to Pensacola today. We had a deal - she would go to principal service at Christ Church with me, and I would go with her to the annual Antique Show hosted by the Episcopal Women.   I almost forgot about this plan in the aftermath of Bubba Columbus' death, and in finishing drafting Volume 2 of the novel from hell. But thankfully, I was at the Crestview Courthouse parking lot on time, and we headed out.   She was a Minnesotan Irish Catholic converted to Unitarianism, then attempting to convert to Deep Southern with little success, so I didn't know how she would take to her first Episcopal Church. However, I figured a Catholic could handle it, even with two books, a program and a scripture text bulletin insert. I told her to be thankful we weren't going to a Jewish Temple which jumped from Hebrew to English and back - as a good goyim I stayed lost.   The service was absolutely wonderful. Features:   Opening and closing voluntaries - Variations on "O God, thou faithful God" - J.S. Bach   Processional Hymn: Praise, my soul, the King of heaven (Lauda anima) Sequence Hymn: They cast their nets in Galilee (Georgetown) Anthem: Locus iste - Anton Bruckner Final Hymn: Christ, for the world we sing (Moscow)   Great sermon (almost Baptist in topic, and probably scary to those Episcopalians, calling them to commitment, oh my!), and wonderful choir, best I've ever heard them. Organ music was solid. It was inspiration I badly needed.   We then had lunch hosted by the Episcopal Women - a chicken casserole to turn any Minnesotan green with envy, a green congealed salad (what do you call those things? waldorf? not watergate), croissants, coffee and fabulous desserts. Then we walked around the antique show drooling on ancient diamonds in European settings, silver letter openers, silver, crystal, Wedgwood, furniture and other items.   We missed the AGO wedding music program, so we decided to go by Barnes & Nobles so that I could find a recording of the song I have recently discovered and dubbed 'liquid sex' - Franz Liszt's "Oh! quand je dors". Although Thomas Hampson does it and I was looking for a male voice, I ending up choosing the Barbara Bonney version.   Hey, I'm ready to beg for a seat in the choir and drive 75 miles to choir practice and church every Sunday. Happy Sunday after Super Bowl.   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com

Williams' "In the Year that King Uzziah Died" was indeed on Aeolian-Skinner King of Instruments, vol.

Other works included are:   "I Was Glad When They Said Unto Me," C. H. H. Parry "Greater Love Hath No Man," John Ireland Hymn: "All People That on Earth Do Dwell" "Prelude on 'Iam Sol Recedit Igneus,'" Bruce Simonds   Notes tell us that Roy Perry did the finishing of the organ.

(back) Subject: An Organ Special to Us From: "Mike Gettelman" <mike3247@earthlink.net> Date: Sun, 08 Feb 2004 22:55:23 -0500   Though I have been really quite remiss in not making this announcement in a more timely fashion, I urge you to take the time to hear the latest Pipedream program. It is available on the web as a streaming broadcast, or tune into your local PBS station if they happen to carry the Pipedreams program. I particularly enjoy when Michael Barone programs an "In Concert" segment, and one of the organs featured this week happens to have been built by the Nichols and Simpson Organ Builders Company, which is where both of our administrative hosts of Pipechat, David Scribner and Tim Bovard also happen to work. This is a rare opportunity to hear the artistry of a very talented group of organ folks, made all the better in this case by the work of Ken Cowan who performed the inaugural recital on the new instrument at The Cathedral of Saint Augustine in Kalamazoo, Michigan. I was lucky enough to hear this concert, and can attest to the wonderful sounds and exquisite construction quality that characterize all the instruments built by Joe Nichols and Wayne Simpson, with the help of their highly craftsman like crew. When you hear this organ, I'll bet you will be as astounded as I was to learn there are 17 ranks and 9 stops yet to be added to this instrument, and only prepared for at this juncture. So, please take the time from your busy schedules to visit the Pipedreams website while they still have the program offered, and also visit the N&S website to see just how prolific this fine American organ builder has been, and also notice how far ahead they are scheduled for new instruments. I think it will do the collective heart of the organ community some good to realize that new organs ARE being built, and there is still a years in the future demand for companies like N&S to work their magic for discerning clients all over the country.   Cheers to All, and congratulations to N&S Organ Builders Mike Gettelman
