(back) Subject: RE: Sheet music compilations (both feet) From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@direcway.com> Date: Thu, 11 Mar 2004 18:50:45 -0600   Steve, this may not work, but once I was looking for a volume of Bossi's works, and an organ music seller (I think it was Lois Fyfe at the time) found me a used edition at a reduced price, because the stuff I was looking for was out of print at the time. It is possible you can get copies of the old Buxtehude volumes that way, or when an organist sells out his collection over the list.   I have several of the Bareinreiter editions of the Pachelbel, and was somewhat disappointed with them - there's not much in them for the money. However, the moment I gave away or sold them I would need them for some reason, so I hang on to them.   I want to think that Cabezon's most popular works can be obtained in a volume of "Obras piezas sueltas" (I think - I'm sorry, but I fought the good fight again today, and my memory is shot), edited by Guy Bovet. Someone here on the list can tell us (again) which volume. I have the Lidon volume, and it cost me something like $40 a few years back. Sorry. I would buy the Cabezon myself if I did more organ-playing and less windmill-tilting.   Note: The Lidon is manuals-only, but some neat stuff. Haven't perused the Cabezon volume personally.   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com     -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org] On Behalf Of giwro@adelphia.net Sent: Thursday, March 11, 2004 5:08 PM To: PipeChat Subject: Re: Sheet music compilations (both feet)   If you want to try some free stuff out:   http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/multimedia/music-scores/freemusic/   Download all you want!   Jonathan     > From: steveweb413@nerstrand.net > Date: 2004/03/11 Thu PM 02:16:35 PST > To: pipechat@pipechat.org > Subject: Sheet music compilations (both feet) > > My sheet music library is limited, and I would like to have material from a greater variety of composers. > > Cabezon, Buxtehude, Pachelbel > > I don't think it is a wise use of money to go out and purchase, say, the 8 volume set of Cabezon's complete organ works, and the similarly voluminous collections of complete works by Buxtehude, Pachelbel, and other similar composers. > > Yet I'm suspicious of compilations because I've seen too much material out there that is edited down for one-footed organists or manuals only. > > Any recommendations? > > Steve > "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 > Subscribe/Unsubscribe: mailto:requests@pipechat.org > > >   "Pipe Up and Be Heard!"

You all think of me - last time I drove home at midnight from a Fairhope recital I was almost run off the Escambia Bay Bridge by a drunk with no lights on.   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com     -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org] On Behalf Of quilisma@cox.net Sent: Thursday, March 11, 2004 6:59 PM To: PipeChat Subject: Re: Organists Free Speech   Naw, I show up every once in awhile on other nights, but nobody's ever there, even if I send out a note that I'm there.

(back) Subject: Are you feeling a Lenten crunch as well? From: "Christopher Howerter" <OrgelspielerKMD@msn.com> Date: Thu, 11 Mar 2004 22:16:10 -0500   Dear Desiree,   I am not feeling this crunch concerning the church job, as I only work = about 10 hours a week (though when you consider school work and a = million other things, I guess it comes pretty close). However, I do = always practice a minimum of 3 hours each day, unless I am sick or want = to hang out with friends. (SHHH...Malcolm, keep it quite...we wouldn't = want Mr. Roberts to find out!) <grin> No, that was just a joke! = Though, this actually reminds me of the time I was in Greenwich, CT. I = was visiting a Presbyterian church that had one of the last Mollers = built just before the company went out of business. I met two other = organists there and I played for them before chatting. After my playing = we got on to the topic of practice, as they wondered how much of it I = did in one day. I had told them three hours, and I believe they looked = a bit stunned. I asked them how much they practiced and they had said = definitely not that much, or something of the sort. In fact, the one = said that with his busy schedule, he could hardly do that in a day. You = probably wonder how this is pertinent to the topic...well, hold on a = minute! Then he went on to say, just wait until you have a full-time = church job, then you'll see. I presume Desiree is experiencing this, = which is obviously normal. In fact, being his very busy schedule, Mr. = Roberts practices about one hour per day, which is probably more than = most! Nevertheless, as both he and the other organist said, "The most = repertoire that one learns is while they are in school!" Point blank! = So, do not fret Desiree, I'm sure you'll be able to squeeze some time = in, especially after this dreadful season. When I say dreadful, I meant = that as per the time consumption. Well, I've rambled on = enough...cheers!   Sincerely, Christopher J.

I have not changed the rules - any subject may be discussed there. I have, however, said that any member who posts endless, boring and repetitive posts on the same subject, most of which are made up of chunks of newspaper articles, will be removed from the list. It was not the subject matter that I and other members objected to. It was the method. Should you wish to make up your own mind you may read the messages for yourselves at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/orgofftop/ I apologise for bringing this up on this list, and would not have done so if I had not felt it necessary to reply to unfounded accusations.   John Foss     =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D www.johnfoss.gr http://groups.yahoo.com/group/orgofftop/ Topics of the week : American Politics The Burning Bush Formula 1     ___________________________________________________________ Yahoo!
