(back) Subject: Ringling museum From: "Dr. Amy Fleming" <docamy@alltel.net> Date: Tue, 27 Jan 2004 08:29:15 -0600   We visited the Ringling museum in Sarasota, Fl alst week. I think someone had mentioned the organ in the Ca d 'Zan mansion recently. It hasn't been played since the early 30's. the tour guide kept talking about the = "chords" and how big they were and where they were stored. :) Afterwards my = daughter politely asked if she really meant "pipes" and she said that she thought they were the same thing! My daughter had to explain to here what pipes were. The house has been recently restored to the tune of 2 million. It = is part of Florida State U. Seems like someone in the music dept could take = an interest in having it restored and could give them some better advice on doing so. Amy    
(back) Subject: Easter anthem From: "Rick" <iplayorgan@comcast.net> Date: Tue, 27 Jan 2004 09:12:04 -0600   Hello List!   One of my favorite Easter anthems is "Entrata Fetiva" by Flor Peeters. It needs mass choir (the more the merrier), brass quartet, tympani, and pipe organ. The organ has solo parts, as do the brass the percussion. The = words are in Latin, with English optional. Very majestic and powerful and not = too difficult.   Happy Easter, Rick

We would not use it as an anthem on Easter, because we do want something = in full, glorious harmony, but it serves as the entrance procession every = year, and God help me, were I to even suggest not doing it.   Is there, Rick, actually a version of this work with the choral parts in harmony?   Cheers,   Malcolm Wechsler www.mander-organs.com   ----- Original Message ----- From: "Rick" <iplayorgan@comcast.net> To: "PipeChat" <pipechat@pipechat.org> Sent: Tuesday, January 27, 2004 10:12 AM Subject: Easter anthem     > Hello List! > > One of my favorite Easter anthems is "Entrata Fetiva" by Flor Peeters. = It > needs mass choir (the more the merrier), brass quartet, tympani, and = pipe > organ.

(back) Subject: The Peeters Entrata Festiva From: "Malcolm Wechsler" <manderusa@earthlink.net> Date: Tue, 27 Jan 2004 13:10:32 -0500   However, it is a bit too late to ask the composer how he feels about that. = I believe his original conception is the correct one for the spirit of the piece, so in this one case, I will eschew creativity in favor of authenticity. It would feel to me very like providing vocal harmonies for plainsong.   It's a bit like a guy in my choir, a bass, who does a little addition to = the fraction anthem that we sing often just before Communion, adapted from plainsong by Mason Martens of blessed memory. It's at No. S171 in the 1982 Hymnal. When our cantor sings for the last time, "in the breaking of the bread," with the last two syllables, "the bread," sung to two Fs, this guy sings a little harmony, a C on "the," and the third, an A on "bread." We = are all, choir and congregation, standing around the altar. There is no accompaniment. It is a quiet and solemn moment. This strikes me, gently, please understand, as a minor assault on the style. Never in 1000 years would I curb this guy's creative urges. He's an important bass singer in = the choir, volunteer, and one who is on fire for the music, and for his own increasing skills. My reaction is always to smile a little enigmatic = smile, and to say inwardly, relax and let it go! This I do, without difficulty.   Yours indeed,   Malcolm Wechsler www.mander-organs.com   ----- Original Message ----- From: "Rick" <iplayorgan@comcast.net> To: "PipeChat" <pipechat@pipechat.org> Sent: Tuesday, January 27, 2004 12:33 PM Subject: RE: Easter anthem     > You are correct, Malcolm.

Some years ago I got three 17 year olds from the sixth form to do some work on the electric action and wind supply at St Mary of Eton, Hackney Wick, which had suffered from water damage. It is a fine sounding Grant Degens & Rippin organ of 1965. http://lehuray2.csi.cam.ac.uk/npor.html I asked them if they could - they said yes, and I left them to get on with it. I didn't interfere in anyway whatsoever - just paid for the few materials needed. End product - perfect working order for the organ and very happy church. One of the boys is now a Marketing Director of Mr Gates's company (OK - you may not be a PC fan - but I bet most of you have got them!), another is one of London's top barristers and the third a Director of the BBC responsible for technical developments. They can all play the organ quite competently! I believe that if you have faith in people, give them the right support but don't interfere you are far more likely to get good results.
