(back) Subject: cross-posted off-topic cry for help From: "Margo Dillard" <dillardm@airmail.net> Date: Tue, 10 Feb 2004 07:51:47 -0600   I have experienced a disaster of apocalyptic proportions in the area of personal organization. I have lost my address/phone number/e-mail listings. (I KNOW I should have had a back-up copy - but I didn't, OK - I'll do that next time!) It has been gone for 2 weeks, and I have to accept that it will never return. So.....if you believe you are a person whose personal name/e-mail/phone number/address/whatever was in my directory (or who should have been), could you please send it to me by private reply.   Most humbly beseeching your forgiveness for the intrusion, Thank you, Margo Dillard Lewisville, Texas

(back) Subject: sorta off-topic: more liturgical music posted (X-posted) From: <quilisma@cox.net> Date: Tue, 10 Feb 2004 14:00:31 -0800   I have just posted the St. John Passion set to the Gregorian melodies with optional SATB Turba choruses adapted from Ludovico Viadana to my music download list.   If anyone else wants it (or the St. Luke Passion for Palm Sunday), PLEASE E-MAIL ME PRIVATELY (*not* the lists) and indicate whether you want PDF or Sibelius files.   A donation of $56 is requested for the St. Luke Passion (one dollar per page for the masters, make all the copies you want) and $48 for the St. John (same deal).   Donations are STRICTLY VOLUNTARY ... I'd rather have the stuff SUNG and PRESERVED (grin). If you can afford it, fine; if you can't, sing it anyway (grin).   I also have virtually ALL of the Holy Week music for SATB ... Reproaches written out in full with the CORRECTED melody for the verses (Vittoria), Crux fidelis (Palestrina or Lassus), etc. etc. etc.   I'm also doing the Gradual Psalms, Tracts and Alleluias for Year C ... Gregorian tones alternating with Viadana or Lassus. Those are available through the 5th Sunday of Lent currently ... I'll tackle Eastertide next.   E-mail me privately for a catalog of what I've got ...     Cheers,   Bud Clark San Diego CA USA

I was fortunate to meet a man whose mother played the organ there for 35 years. She's in her late 80's and very sick, and he said they probably = wouldn't tell her what had happened. She had through the years donated many ranks = of pipes, until it reached almost 40 ranks and three manuals, I believe.   It's so sad, and on the news this afternoon they said the fire started in = the pipe organ. Of course, it was in the blower room. The man I talked to = this afternoon thought that they left the blower on long enough for embers to = be blown into the chests, and it smouldered for 24 hours. I don't know, can superheated air start a fire in a windchest, or does it take hot embers? = It doesn't look like there's anything to salvage, as the whole building is gutted, sanctuary and huge addition. I'm sure they'll rebuild. Two fires in two = days is really a bit much to take. The people I saw are really in a state of = shock.   On the brighter side, I just got the 14 ranks of pipes going again in my house (they're interfaced to a two manual custom Allen MDS, about 10 years = old). Looks and sounds awesome in its fourth installation since the pipes played = in my first home in 1969. If you're in the DeKalb Illinois area, please call = and come for a listen.   Devon Hollingsworth

It's our only means of transportation now since the old Chrysler got totalled (while parked; nobody got hurt). So if you were thinking about donating for music, now's the time (grin).   For those of you who might not be aware of our situation, I'm retired for medical reasons, and unable to work, except for what I do here at home on the computer; my partner and our two kids are all disabled, and on SSI; I've applied for SDI; I'm waiting to get it. *I* have no visible means of support other than the donations for my music. We're managing just fine (grin), but there's no cushion for emergencies like this.   Strictly voluntary donations:   Checks:   Raymond H. Clark 2616 University Ave. San Diego CA 92104-2810   or via PayPal:   beejayusa@cox.net (our family account)   THANKS!   Cheers,   Bud

Don't get me = wrong: Natalie Sleeth penned a wonderful anthem - but for my personal taste, it's NOT an Easter Sunday anthem, actually.   Dale Rider Independence, MO
