I had an additional thought of inviting everyone who has been touched by this angel's long service to = sign a page of the hymnal, with perhaps a short note to her in the margin.   Kind regards,   Ray Kimber

It was installed for first time in a Anglican Church (Union Church of Rio de Janeiro). However, in the swell box there is a sign where is written: "August Gren, London". Does anybody know something about this name? Is he a organbuilder?   Thanks in advanced   Domitila Ballesteros   --- Acabe com aquelas janelinhas que pulam na sua tela.

(back) Subject: Another Apology (off topic) From: "Mike Gettelman" <mike3247@earthlink.net> Date: Thu, 22 Jan 2004 19:55:13 -0500   Sorry for the repeated post. My daily virus update was automatically working when I sent the first message, and I did not think it made it through. Obviously it did. My apologies with a promise to return to low profile. Mike    
(back) Subject: Re: Hymn Tunes From: "Bill Raty" <billious@billraty.com> Date: Thu, 22 Jan 2004 20:19:25 -0800 (PST)   FWIW-- be aware that there are some hymnals that don't use standard common hymn tune names. I was startled when the latest LDS hymnal came out for which one of the new features was listing of "standard" tune names, only to find that the compilers had appropriated some well known hymn tune names (ex.: Ebeneezer) and placed them on entirely different hymn tunes.   You should do alright with what I call the standard main line sects: Anglican, Episcopal, Presbyterian, Methodist, Lutheran.   List members, be on the lookout for the hymn tune "Spiritus Vitae" from the Canadian Presbyterian hymnal. Its stirring and beautiful.   -Billious     --- Keith Zimmerman <kwzimmerman@alltel.net> wrote: > List, > > I know that there is an expensive resource for matching hymn > tunes with the > popular hymn names.

(back) Subject: Re: Hymn Tunes From: "David Evangelides" <davide@theatreorgans.com> Date: Fri, 23 Jan 2004 05:06:59 +0000   Noel suggested the site: Cyberhymnal.org   I searched this web site at work, and it was very helpful. Go to: http://www.cyberhymnal.org/ Tried it just now, but my handheld device doesn't have Java. Click on 'Tunes by Name' and you will get an alphabetical listing of hymn tunes + many of the commonly associated hymns for each tune.   There is also a listing Tunes By Meter, but didn't have time to research it.   David E   On Wed, 21 Jan 2004 9:00am, Noel Stoutenburg wrote:   > Two available online resources which may be of some utility are the > Cyberhymnal and Oremus websites, though there may be others, too.     David E   David Evangelides Fulfillment Manager International Bible Society Colorado Springs, CO 80921
