Sorry if I am emulating my aunt, whose stories come round every Christmas - though she has the excuse of being 96. To credit me with having led a good life would be far from the truth! I may have been lucky occasionally, and of course people do sometimes let one down. I suppose one trusts those people you believe are capable of doing a good job, and this trust is based on experience. On the Easter Anthem topic, another one that comes to mind is Malcolm Williamson's "Procession of Palms" John Foss   =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D www.johnfoss.gr http://groups.yahoo.com/group/orgofftop/ Topics of the week : "Fantasist or liar, Blair is unfit to govern" Prison sentences - Ronnie Biggs   ________________________________________________________________________ BT Yahoo!

(back) Subject: www.felix-hell.com Website problems From: <Hell-Concerts@t-online.de> Date: Wed, 28 Jan 2004 21:23:25 +0100   Dear Listmembers,   as some of you might have realized, Felix 's website changed its face. But we have a few minor problems. In the recital schedules the times of the beginning of the venues do not appear, in spite of the fact, that they had been put in. Furthermore, in the 2004-schedule the whole month May shows twice (for what reason ever). We are working on these problems, and will, hopefully, be able to present the new online appearance without any errors soon.   Hans-Friedrich Hell

From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@direcway.com> Date: Wed, 28 Jan 2004 17:49:47 -0600   No one has mentioned my favorite, and one that is not that hard to sing or play, and is just glorious. I can't help myself, and know it is probably too old and worn and familiar, breeding contempt.   But it used not to be Easter until the choir sang "Most Glorious Lord of Life", tune by William Harris and text from Edmund Spenser's "Amoretti" sonnets (yes, Mr. Faerie Queene himself). You know, those sonnets of his are pretty good stuff, to paraphrase, contradict and turn a phrase of A. E. Housman.   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com

No brass, however. It is in the Oxford Easy Anthem Book, as well as having = been published as a single Octavo.   Malcolm   ----- Original Message ----- From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@direcway.com> To: "'PipeChat'" <pipechat@pipechat.org> Sent: Wednesday, January 28, 2004 6:49 PM Subject: RE: Easter Anthem?     > No one has mentioned my favorite, and one that is not that hard to sing > or play, and is just glorious.

(back) Subject: Who was J. Christopher Marks? From: <OrganNYC@aol.com> Date: Wed, 28 Jan 2004 19:36:38 EST   Dear List Members,   On Easter Day, the Church of the Heavenly Rest will celebrate the 75th anniversary of the "Opening and Dedication of the New Church". Today, we = unearthed from the archives a copy of the 16-page program book in order to see what = was done on that first Sunday in the new church. We thought it would be appropriate to include some or all of the music which was used that = Sunday; unfortunately, none of it is in the church's music library! If any of you = have heard of -- or better yet own a copy of -- any of the following, please let me = know.   The Organist and Choirmaster listed on the program is J. Christopher = Marks, Mus.D. Can anyone shed some light on who this person was?   Communion Service in G -- Marks (the O/C) Sequence Anthem: Christ Our Passover -- Tours Offertory Anthem: As it began to dawn -- Martin   The final hymn is listed as the "Retrocessional" -- a word I've not heard before, but it makes perfect sense.   The Postlude was the "Hallelujah Chorus" for orchestra and organ!!!   The services listed for that Sunday were: 6:30 A.M. Celebration of the Holy Communion 7:30 A.M. Celebration of the Hoy Communion, with music 9:00 A.M. Service for the Church School 11:00 A.M. Celebration of the Holy Communion and Sermon (Dedication Service). This service will be preceded by a half-hour of special music. = (string orchestra, organ and harp) 4:30 P.M. Sacred Cantata -- "Victory Divine" (no composer listed) 8:30 P.M. Hour of Easter music -- organ and double string quartet   Thanks,   Steve Lawson Associate Organist Church of the Heavenly Rest - NYC www.heavenlyrest.org          
(back) Subject: St. Luke's Epsicopal, Montclair, NJ Sknner From: <TubaMagna@aol.com> Date: Wed, 28 Jan 2004 20:43:49 EST   Anything know anything about this??? from the Newark Star Ledger:   St. Luke's, having eliminated its deficit, makes grants of nearly = $50,000 a year to the nonprofit groups, a sum generated mostly by proceeds from its busy Second Time Around shop. But the annual operating budget of about $375,000 got its biggest boost recently from an aggressive capital = campaign that ended in December, having just cleared its $500,000 target. Word that the goal had been met was music to the ears of St. Luke's vestry warden, Paul Kneuer. He hopes to see a purchase contract signed shortly = for a state-of-the-art organ, something the parish has been eyeing for some time.   The instrument uses digital electronic technology that goes a step beyond a regular synthesizer in replicating the sound of pipes.   And to supplement this centerpiece of the campaign, workers will be installing a new oak floor for better acoustics in the soaring, granite-walled 1890 sanctuary.   Sebastian M.

"Most glorious Lord of Lyfe" BUT by Armstrong-Gibbs.   Had it at my wedding (careful now ........) together with "Set me as a = seal upon thine heart" by William Walton.   This year we're 'doing' some of the Messiah pieces at Easter: cuts down on the teaching time 'cos everyone's familiar already.   We're taking-on the Palm Sunday procession to church (St. Leonard's) = through the village this year (from our neighbour Holy Trinity who will be concentrating on performing 'The Cross of Christ'.)   I have thoughts of performing selections from that old favourite 'Olivet = to Calvary (Maunder) throughout the service - possibly in place of hymns - = the copies of which are almost invisible beneath a nest if cobwebs in the vestry.
