You must be catching these nasties because of your lung edema providing a nice environment for those pneumococus germs. I just pray they can keep coming up with newer and better antibiotics as you become more resistant to the ones they have now. So please take care of yourself and get well soon. I've got enough to worry about with Arp's condition and my own unemployment which has taken away my ability to purchase the $300 worth of diabetic meds I need to take in order to protect my life. It's become a pretty scary world for us all it seems. Well, good luck and I'll include you in my prayers which have gotten kind of busy of late. Cheers Mike   "Raymond H.

Not only can you play the cathedral organ, you can also accompany the evening service!"   With that, I was bustled outside and sent in the direction of the cathedral, where I gently acompanied the small gathering of worshippers in the chancel and managed to improvise a voluntary in the style of Handel afterwards. (Actually, coming to think of it, it was probably John Stanley with added 16ft pedals, and "of course" it included a Trumpet Voluntary at the end).   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK                     __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!?

(back) Subject: Medics! From: "Bob Conway" <conwayb@sympatico.ca> Date: Wed, 28 Jul 2004 10:33:11 -0400   To Arp, Bud and Mike,   You have my sympathy with all your health problems.   When I was young, our family doctor would see you, tell you that you would =   be alright, and then prescribe his own "pick-me-up". This was a concoction =   that he made in his own back room, and nobody ever knew what was in it, - but in most cases it worked!   He charged young people, like myself, sixpence a bottle, my father had to pay one shilling a bottle, and if you were unemployed he gave it to you = for free! That was Social Medicine in practice during the 1930's and 40's.   There were no fancy drugs that I recall, and the doctor once even phoned the hospital to tell them that he was bringing me over immediately for a strangled hernia. Now they wouldn't even call a taxi for you!   With that all in mind, I have my doubts that the Medical Profession has much going for it today, - but all the same, I can only send you all my best wishes for a speedy recovery from your indispositions.   Keep your head above the water, and try not to worry too much about it.   Cheers,   Bob Conway    
(back) Subject: RE: Rheinberger and Scotland From: "Colin Mitchell" <cmys13085@yahoo.co.uk> Date: Wed, 28 Jul 2004 07:44:37 -0700 (PDT)   Hello Mark,   I play the 11 speaking-stop baroque masterpiece at St.Joseph's RC church, Keighley, West Yorks.   A small organ with a big sound in a perfect acoustic.   I think it was Cecil Clutton who described it as, "One of the ten best small organs built in the UK in the past century."   It was featured in the BIOS journal sometime back in the seventies.   I have, on and off, been associated with this instrument since it was built in 1974/5, for I never stopped popping in to play for mass even when I lived and in London and was up North visiting relatives.   In London, I was at St.Augustine's, Kilburn for about a year, but the pressures of financial/legal work made it impossible to do justice to the musical tradition there, which at that time had full choral services morning and evening.   My only other claim to fame is that I was probably the shortest serving assistant at Grimsby PC and the Choir School, and following a big row about money, I fled after just one term!!   There's nothing I enjoy more than giving recitals and playing with orchestras, but to be honest, the organ scene is now so depleted, my last recital performance was 2 years ago! Before that, I've been heard at St.Bride's London, Hull City Hall, St.Bart's Armley, Halifax PC and dozens of other places.   Finally, I graduated from Hull University, where I was Organ Scholar.   Enough of the CV (!) where do you play? What do you do at the Beeb?   Regards,   Colin         __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? New and Improved Yahoo! Mail - 100MB free storage! http://promotions.yahoo.com/new_mail

I promised a bunch of people awhile back that I would transcribe the long version of the "Trampling" troparion from the Albanian Orthodox Hymnal (!) (grin).   For the installation of a pastor, I have "Behold a Great Priest" and "The Lord Has Sworn / Thou Art A Priest Forever" in English, by Singenberger and Fr. Rossini, respectively.   I also have a UNISON version of Elgar's "The Spirit of the Lord Is Upon Me" with a PLAYABLE organ accompaniment.   Other texts:   How Beautiful Are The Feet of Them That Preach Us The Gospel Of Peace .... I have to hunt for it, but I have an anthem version of the solo by somebody late 19th or early 20th century ... Harker? One of the other Christian Science composers? Can't remember right now, but we just finished organizing my choral library, so I'll find it.   A setting of the Te Deum is good.   There's always "Vivat Pastor Bonus!" from the St. Basil Hymnal (chuckle).   Hymns:   I Bind Unto Myself Today God of the Prophets, Bless the Prophets' Sons Lord, Pour Thy Spirit From On High Come, Labour On Lord, Who Didst Send, By Two and Two Before Thee Go, Labor On! Spend and be Spent Holy Spirit, Truth Divine Come, Holy Ghost (in its various incarnations) Lord, Speak To Me, That I May Speak       Cheers,   Bud       Erik Johnson wrote:   > Hello All, > > I am searching for a hymn with the possible title text of "Christus > Resurexit" that may have a melody similar to the Psalm XIX of Benedito > Marchello (sp). > > Our new pastor has chosen to have an installation Mass by the bishop and =   > he mentioned he used to sing this hymn/chant back in his seminary years. =   > Also if anyone has ideas for hymns / anthems for an installation service =   > - please send them along! > > Thanks! > > Erik > > > > ****************************************************************** > "Pipe Up and Be Heard!" > PipeChat: A discussion List for pipe/digital organs & related topics > HOMEPAGE : http://www.pipechat.org > List: mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org > Administration: mailto:admin@pipechat.org > List-Subscribe: <mailto:pipechat-on@pipechat.org> > List-Digest: <mailto:pipechat-digest@pipechat.org> > List-Unsubscribe: <mailto:pipechat-off@pipechat.org> > >

Classical musicians should stick to classical music, another example being The Three Tenors trying to sing Christmas carols or pop/movie music.   Totally off-topic - I miss my old Sony transceiver/mixer/equalizer. I remember when we installed it in the new house - I was typing on the computer in the loft and listening to Jimi Hendrix, and I kept turning around, expecting him to be there - it was so real. But the Sony was demon-possessed, and finally quit playing totally on one set of speakers, turning itself on and off when it pleased. We finally replaced it with an Ontko - nowhere near as good on sound quality of the albums.   I'm old and should be in bed - maybe just one more drink and record . . ..   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com (who has just graduated to an old album of an Birmingham, Alabama, jazz band, Backwater, that no longer exists - sounds pretty good and brings back a lot of memories of Saturday nights in my early 20s when . . . well, anyway, I don't remember how to do that stuff anymore)   -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org] On Behalf Of M Fox   Hurrah for Glenda!
