I think I remember someone posting a cross reference for many popular hymns. I'm mainly interested in those hymns commonly = sung in Baptist, Methodist, and Presbyterian services. I've started to pay = more attention to the tiny Italic name at the bottom of the page in our = hymnbook that gives the name of the hymn tune whenever we sing at church. Nevertheless, if anyone has a list that could be posted, I'd appreciate = it.   Thanks, Keith

For someone who has contributed as much as she has - I would make the presentation in front of the whole church - not just the choir.     Margo   Leland, Jan and Michael Smith wrote: > I need some ideas.

(back) Subject: 2004-retrospect. THANK YOU and APOLOGY From: <Hell-Felix@t-online.de> Date: Wed, 21 Jan 2004 17:18:37 +0100     Dear listmembers and friends,   I am still receiving wonderful letters, e-mails, other kind of warm and kind responses to my 2004-retrospect, and I am deeply moved, how many of you taking part in my life. This all =93keeps me going=94 so to speak. It gives the power I always need, in particular, when have to care to get my health back in shape. Again, thank you all for thinking of me and keeping me in your prayers.   But, a very heavy flu with high temperatures, and a non detected hidden mononucleosis are not suitable to make for a creative ambience of positive writing. My retrospect was meant to be informative, partially humorously, here and there certainly ironically. But when I received one particular response, telling me, that my writing came over =93totally arrogant=94, calling my comments =93ill thought=94, I was shocked. As = this response came from a listmember, whose personal integrity and professional judgement I have always valued very highly, I must have done something significantly wrong with controlling my words, in particular, what impact they may have to others. Therefore I hereby severely and humbly apology if I have hurt anybody with any of my words. Receiving the above mentioned response, I realized, that words can be weapons, aggressive weapons. Words are suitable to create hate, and they can reveal hate. It is not, will not be and never had been my intention, that my words are part of hate and flame. Therefore I hereby repeat, and ask for forgiveness, if I should have hurt anybody, or if I should have caused any hard feelings with any unthoughtful words. I should better not write too much, but do what I probably can do a little bit better: making music, for the glory of the instance, who provided me with the talent to do so.   Felix Hell        
(back) Subject: Re: Recognition of choir member From: "Mike Gettelman" <mike3247@earthlink.net> Date: Wed, 21 Jan 2004 12:48:18 -0500   Hello, I'm rather surprised that amongst all the suggestions for plaques, retirement party activities, and other memorabilia in commemoration of her service, no one has suggested a musical program dedicated to her and containing her favorite music be prepared and performed. She is a musician first and foremost, and most musicians would value a well rehearsed and sensitive performance done in loving style in tribute to all she has done for the music program at her church. I would think she would get great satisfaction in doing it all, singing, directing, and playing the organ = one more time in a sort of benediction. I know I would.

It's too early yet to look back to 2004. But I'm probably too much focused on what will be coming.   Best wishes to all   Felix

But I am shocked that you should feel a need = for it, or that anyone from this list has complained in that manner. = Among other problems, whoever this was must have forgotten that English = is not your native tongue. It is now easy to forget that. Your writing = (and, from all reports, speaking) in English is now absolutely eloquent.   The complaint must have come more from envy than anything else, together = perhaps with having experienced that many people of half your stature = in our profession *have* become arrogant (while, strangely enough, most = of your real peers at the top really are not). So he expects arrogance = and will infer it even when it isn't there, e.g. in any possible report = of having been so many places and accomplished so many marvelous things = in just one year.   Please don't worry about it. I'd be really sad if this wayward complaint = were to deter you from keeping in touch and giving us such a delightful = summing-up next year.   Paul

(back) Subject: Re: 2004-retrospect. THANK YOU and APOLOGY From: "Colin Mitchell" <cmys13085@yahoo.co.uk> Date: Wed, 21 Jan 2004 13:43:20 -0800 (PST)   Hello,   Poor Felix!   I can't imagine what it was that he wrote which could cause offence or suggest "arrogance."   My advice is simply to "publish and be damned!"   Quite recently, I made the suggestion that Easley Blackwood (who?) "might just be a lesser composer than Reger" if he felt it necessary to dismiss Reger as a "non composer."   I was taken to task, accused of arrogance and anti academic philistinism, then promptly silenced on another so-called "forum." Definitely the funniest event of last year!   Well Felix, welcome to the mad, mad world of intelligentsia.   I suspect that Jesus washed feet because it made everyone feel comfortable. I would suggest Felix, that you wash your hands of this silly bit of personal criticism, and continue to delight us, as always. I suspect that your English is the equal of my organ playing......flawed, but eloquent!   I can assure Felix, that his organ-playing is infinitely superior to my German.....and I have yet to have the pleasure of hearing him.   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK         --- Hell-Felix@t-online.de wrote: > > Dear listmembers and friends, > > I am still receiving wonderful letters, e-mails, > other kind of warm and > kind responses to my 2004-retrospect, and I am > deeply moved, how many of > you taking part in my life.
