Maybe =   his anger was justified but his outburst was NOT. Don't forget that this forum is called PIPECHAT. It is an on-line discussion group, and its' nature is akin to the old fashioned party line where everyone has the = right to chime in, whether they know what they are talking about or not. That is =   called healthy discussion. Frankly I have found the discussion about the = NU situation very interesting, and helped get this information out to a large =   number of folks who are interested. You have been very helpful in confirming some of the problem areas. The Daily Northwestern has been = very supportive of the students and has refuted some of the statements and claims made by Dean Montgomery. These articles are available to anyone = who is interested by doing a search on the Northwestern website. Doug = Cleveland has been portrayed as the pivotal element in the decision to close the program. The Daily Northwestern pointed out the incongruity of the deans claim that the program was being closed because Cleveland was leaving and the statements by Doug's backers that he was being forced to leave due to the closing of the program. The fate of this program certainly should not be determined by what a single professor, does or does not decide to do with his future. I would not be surprised if Doug considered leaving over his frustration at failing to get the University to address the problems with improvements needed with the school instruments. The Daily Northwestern very aptly stated that the students did not need this distraction over the fate of their school which is effecting their abilities to focus on their studies. Dean Montgomery stated that they are unable to provide a quality organ department, which is probably true with out resolve and resources to provide one. Without a change in attitude within the Northwestern administration, the continuance of a program limping along within a hostile environment is probably not a good thing.   Jon

I would probably have demanded not so much a visible wound, as a DNA sample....but that's me!   You may think all this is highly "off topic," but not so. The music of the wider historic church is a treasure chest of reflections and comments upon a faith grounded in service, humility and selflessness, whatever the failings of those involved. The scapegoat of a few paedophile priests has nothing on previous Popes!   It is also probably true that, the sentiments expressed in Handel's Messiah or a Bach Passion have probably converted more people than all the sermons ever uttered. Church music....which includes the most brilliant organ music.....remains a source of exceptional inspiration for many people. Most people who buy the CD's do NOT go to church to hear it anymore.   The sheer enormity of what is happening seems to be escaping us. It is not just the "faith of our fathers" which is being cast aside, but the thinking church with it........the church of Martin Luther, John Wesley, Boenhoffer, Tillich and a thousand others.   Sadly, music became an early victim in all this, and now that the pro-active, arm-waving, slick salesmen of "really relevant worship" seem to have the upper hand, it is the tradition of thinking which will be destroyed next; make no mistake!   "You're either for us or against us!"   Where have I heard that before?   The "happy clappy" mentality is the modern day equivalent to stained glass windows in medieval cathedrals......."Don't worry about being (religiously) illiterate, just look at the pretty pictures!"   We are in the grip of a medieval mentality which, with almost military precision, has destroyed the church in the UK at least.......and I mean, TOTALLY destroyed.   In fact, speaking personally (when I could be doing something more useful) I now find 95% of churches utterly offensive. Were it not for peeping in one or two to look at the organ/architecture, or being asked to play for services, I cannot think of any reason why I should ever want to enter a church at all.   Were it not for the very elderly, the churches here in the UK would be almost totally empty.   I wonder how many organs and organists will still be around in another twenty years time....even in America?   The writing is on the wall....you know....the empty wall where the organ used to be!   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK   PS: Mirrors may be TWO dimensional, but they are not bi-directional.       --- Jeff White <reedstop@charter.net> wrote: > *I* marvel at the LACK of humility in statements > like this, and that praise > musicians are nothing more than chord mongers and > lack vocal talent. > Perhaps the mirror should reflect both directions, > no?     __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!?

In the Assemblies of God, they call that a "special"! I usually use that as my cue to exit the Sanctuary and head to the Bathroom or other points in the building far away, so I don't have to listen.   I know that folks are well-intentioned, but truthfully, fingernails on chalkboard is a MUCH more pleasant sound sometimes! Like that commercial that went around a few years ago (like the sound of Chainsaws and opera singers!) SOME things were NOT meant to go together! Some people really need to recognize where their gifts DO NOT lie and stop punishing the rest of us with their crooning at the Moon.   Faithfully,   G.A.   -- Richard Schneider, PRES/CEO <>< Schneider Pipe Organs, Inc. 41-43 Johnston St./P.O.

I only know about three people that are living right now = that can survive on concert careers solely. Everyone else has = teaching/church jobs. I'm sure if it would come to this, perhaps the = organ would just die altogether, except for in rare instances. Most = people, to the best of my knowledge, that start out on organ go into it = for purely sacred reasons.

I must also note that people can = fall anywhere in this spectrum, so do mind the fact of my naming only a = few instances. So, if indeed this happened, I believe we would have = quite a dilemma on our hands. I must also say the great majority of = individuals that do make it to the concert field, cannot survive solely = on that. I personally can't imagine doing anything else in my life than = organ both in concert, church, and teaching. =20   I once considered chemical engineering, though I realized that to do = both would mean that the organ takes second fiddle, which is something = I'm not willing to compromise. I once was told by someone that I've = made a mistake (this was a blanket statement, as they knew nothing about = me) because of the lack of full-time church jobs out there, etc. I = disagree on my part, though not about the fact of the lack of full-time = jobs, however. In fact, this reminds me of a conversation with him at = this concert. He said, "What are you going to do in life?" I replied = that I'm going to be an organist. He then asked what kind of organist. = I said a church musician. Now, I said this because I knew of the lack = of money from the concert field, and wanted to appear informed (LOL). = He then said to me, "What else are you going to do?" I then repeated = what I had said before, only to be asked the same question. I answered = with the same answer, and he again replied with the same question. At = this point, I was ready to explode by saying something like what is your = problem! <g> However, he went on with this whole spiel, which I = thought was ridiculous, quite frankly. Personally, I believe that = everything shall work out in the end for me and that I will find one = when the time is right and what ever I need will come to me with hard = work and effort on my part (the same goes for all of you). My dream is = to be a concert organist, a church musician, and a teacher, which I am = ready to do whatever I can to make that happen! I must say, as I've = said many times before that I am truly blessed to have Mr. Stephen = Roberts as a teacher; he is truly a God-sent and will always stick by me = no matter what.

Howerter, SPC Director of Music & Organist St. Paul's Lutheran Church Bethlehem, PA Cell: (610) 462-8017 Subject: Where'air we are blown From: "Colin Mitchell" = <cmys13085@yahoo.co.uk<mailto:cmys13085@yahoo.co.uk>> Date: Tue, 2 Mar 2004 18:23:24 -0800 (PST)   Hello,   I marvel at the "Happy Clappy" brigade.....so certain, so full of themselves and so utterly bereft of humility.   As I read "pipechat" I just ponder on what is happening across "there," and whether you guys are not approaching a similar crisis point which we, here in the UK, appear to have reached.   On the surface, one might be forgiven for thinking that the only successful churches are those which embrace "happy clappy" worship. There they are, weeping and wailing, waving their arms and swooning into the arms of ministers.......but that's entertainment, hey?   Here in the UK, there are certain centres of such charismatic "excellence".......full every Sunday, and happy to let everyone know that. However, because they are few and far between, they tend to attract a white, predominantly white-collar, minor professional, heterosexual, two children each, middle-class, 4 X 4 owning family congregation. (We don't have a middle England, or the place would sink!)   These churches seem to have nil appeal to blue-collar workers and their families, and represent the moralistic stance of the new "whiter than white, politically correct" victims of society to-day.   These churches are also completely shunned by the traditional churches, and loathed by traditionalists, catholics and everyone else.   Nevertheless, in what can only be seen as a grotesque competition, the traditional churches have gone the way of the happy clappy style, by introducing the pop rave-culture of their upstart competitors.   It is only when one stands back, takes stock and counts bums on seats, that a more sinister picture emerges.   Across ALL denominations (factions?), church attendance is now about 1% of the total population in the UK.....2% best estimate!   The question I would ask, is whether the happy clappy approach isn't just the last, dying gasp of traditional Christianity; dressed up to look more attractive than it is to the average man and woman in the streets?   Indeed, in all western culture, the church has been a pivotal component in society.   Why do people feel so alienated?   I was saying over twenty years ago, that western religion was on the brink of radical change, which had absolutely nothing to do with worship "style."   What happens, I wonder, when the churches that are left start to close their doors, or amalgamate as they have in Holland and the UK? The implications for organists, organ builders, choristers and even clergy, are potentially devastating in the medium term, and deeply unsettling in the short term.   At the very least, having embraced "modern" music (nothing of the sort, of course) and failed, no one can blame the organists and choirs anymore. The truth is, the clergy are becoming marginalised by society at large, and there appears to be a rejection of Christian worship as we know it.   And so to my final question.   Has the time come when we should start promoting the organ as a purely secular instrument and a concert instrument, rather than the psalmists view of the organ as an instrument of a hundred voices?   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK

My denomination, though only numbering 1.2 million has many strong churches, and has about 140 ethnic groups across the country. I am told also that the Methodist Church (from which my denomination sprang along with the Presbyterian and Congregational = churches) is very strong in Singapore, Korea and pther eastern countries. Certainly = we here in Australia have Chinese, Korean, Tongan, Samoan and other congregations along with aboriginal groups also. I have a young friend who visited Singapore and stayed with a Methodist family. She went to the = local church with them and found herself the only white person in a congregation of 3000. The Church may be dying in some countries like yours but in other places = it is far from dead. In my state the Baptists are very strong (yes, they are happy clappy in this state but vary a great deal in other states I am = told) as also are some of the charismatic groups. The social work of my church = has a work force twice that of the Big Australian (BHP) and four times that of Qantas. Only the Government of Australia has a bugger budget for the underprivileged.
