(back) Subject: "Wind Beneath My Wings" From: "Charlie Lester" <crlester@137.com> Date: Fri, 19 Mar 2004 09:12:06 -0800   "Michael David" <michaelandmaggy@earthlink.net> said,   =3D-> Sounds like the Bette Midler song "Wind Beneath My Wings". It's available as a single or in many pop collections at any music store including on-line retailers such as Pepper and Kepharts.   Not terribly organic. <-=3D     OH! On the contrary, "Wind Beneath My Wings" is quite beautiful on the organ! You start with a single Tibia 8' + Vox Humana 8' playing the solo line (with trems of course), accompanied by the softer strings & Harp; then build to Tibias 16-8-4 along with more Voxes and strings for the bridge, increasing accompaniment correspondingly. You don't want to go "hog-wild" with this one ... it needn't go to full organ incl diaphones 32 and Post Horns: At the climax full Tibias, forte Strings & Voxes would yield a sufficient crescendo.   Some people really do need to learn to think "outside the box." There -is- more than one kind of organ.......   (But, indeed, not to say that "WBMY" wouldn't also sound lovely on a Fisk. It's all in the art of registration and having a good legato technique.)   Interestingly enough, I -- not being a member of the Proper Music Police -- have played this song at both weddings and funerals. If you know the words [and aren't a snootie-snottie], you understand how can be fitting, and VERY touching, in both settings.   'course, if "The Divine Miss M" had had a big bowl of 4-alarm chili con carne when working on this song, it might have been entitled "Wind Beneath My Dress."   ba-DUMP-bump *krrsh* -- "But Seriously Folks..."   And, now, back to my direct-action theremin. Geeee...... Maybe I'll work up "WBNY" for my upcoming Theremin-Wurlitzer gig with Stan Kann! Now -there's- a thought!!   ~ C      
(back) Subject: RE: B-A-C-H Composers From: "Emmons, Paul" <PEMMONS@wcupa.edu> Date: Fri, 19 Mar 2004 12:25:06 -0500   I think that these will add to the list:   Walter Piston: Chromatic study on the name of Bach (1940)   Kenneth Leighton: Veni Redemptor (only once, as far as I know, but = rather prominently; and I have a hypothesis that it is significant in announcing that, in the passage in which it appears, he has used = Bach's musical language to make a theological point).    
(back) Subject: RE: Bill H.'s Permanent Appointment at SJE From: "Emmons, Paul" <PEMMONS@wcupa.edu> Date: Fri, 19 Mar 2004 12:41:43 -0500   Congratulations, Bill! This must be a dream come true; what a = fascinating place to work.=20   If you haven't read _Boston Bohemia_, by Douglass Shand-Tucci, I hope = that you can take time to do so. St. John the Evangelist was Ralph = Adams Cram's own parish, the one he chose to join after his rather = dramatic conversion from Unitarianism. The book gives quite a bit of = charming and inspiring history about the parish and its clergy, and the = "Cowley Fathers" SSJE, in the late 19th century.   In 1974 I spent a few days in Oxford and remember visiting the Cowley = Fathers monastery, which was just barely exurban. Charles Grafton, the = greatest bishop of my home diocese of Fond du Lac, and a missionary = builder whose memory is fragrant with equal parts of incense and sawdust = (per Fr. Andrew Mead as quoted by Tucci), was a founding member.   =20

Does anyone know fo a = source that has this work? I have even checked several university librarbies to = no avail.   Thank you Kevin Cischke   _________________________________________________________________ Get reliable access on MSN 9 Dial-up. 3 months for the price of 1!

(back) Subject: OHS Publishes Facsimile of America's first organ journal From: "William T. Van Pelt" <bill@organsociety.org> Date: Fri, 19 Mar 2004 13:32:31 -0500   American organist and composer Eugene Thayer (1838-1889) inaugurated in = 1874 a quarterly newspaper designed specifically and exclusively for organists = - the first such publication in America and thus the forerunner to such periodicals as The Diapason, The American Organist, and The Tracker. Each issue contains commentary, reports and stoplists of specific organs in the U. S. and abroad, historical accounts of organ culture, articles by Thayer and others, and 62 compositions for the organ by Thayer (28 pieces), = Liszt, Rossini, Chadwick, Merkel, Guilmant, Lemmens, Hesse, Battmann, and many others. In 1877, Thayer published all of the issues as a set containing = 242 pages, and a facsimile of that is what the Organ Historical Society has published anew, as a hardbound book with a very informative biographical = and musicological, annotated, introduction by OHS member Allison = Alcorn-Oppedahl as well as a list of Thayer's musical compositions, publications, and = places of employment and education. The book was delivered from the manufacturing plant and is ready for shipment to those who order at http://www.ohscatalog.org It appears on the opening page.

(back) Subject: Re: Psalm 46 From: <quilisma@cox.net> Date: Fri, 19 Mar 2004 11:58:21 -0800   Which translation do you need?   Refrain or no refrain?   SATB for the choir verses?   I'm bored with what I'm doing at the moment, which is nothing (grin) ... I can whip you up one (chuckle).   Cheers,   Bud   Margarete Thomsen wrote:   > Can anyone suggest a setting of Psalm 46 that involves choir (or cantor) =   > and congregation? > > MARGARETE THOMSEN > ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ > University of Michigan, ITCS, Help Desk > Mac OS and Communications, Virus Busters, and Wireless Networking > > "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 > > >

Has choir, brass, and you could theoretically have the = congregation sing the refrain. Quite powerful with organ, but works well = on piano also.   Jeff     > Can anyone suggest a setting of Psalm 46 that involves choir (or > cantor) and congregation? > > MARGARETE THOMSEN > ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
