(back) Subject: [LONG] Whaddya think? Would it sell? From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@direcway.com> Date: Fri, 07 May 2004 20:16:21 -0500   Designed to sell much less than a million, but a little ditty I threw together today.   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com   "It appears our lesson time is up for today. The Franck sounds really good, much improved - I can tell you've been putting yourself through the paces," Professor Kreiser told her, a glint in his eye. He was tall, lean and strong, his skin handsomely tanned, and he was carefully groomed - the touches of gray at his temples and the severe sardonic expression on his face only magnified his Greek-godlike appearance.   Taken aback at his rare compliment, Susan blushed and murmured her thanks. She was accustomed to his caustic criticism and angry scrawls on her musical scores in his illegible script, creating in her a havoc of reactions, from silent submission to flushes of temper when she sensed he was baiting her with inaccurate information, testing whether she was reading the assigned reference literature. Sometimes she was certain that he provoked her purposefully, his remarks regarding deficiencies in her performance carefully honed to feint, to wound, to draw blood and spirited rejoinder from her. Kreiser's encomiums were too rare for her to be equipped to deal with them; she was reduced to a stammering silence, and he knew it and appeared to enjoy those singular moments of her discomfiture.   It was thus with all his students, she had been informed. He was inexorable, seldom pleased, and always driving his flock relentlessly, mercilessly toward his ideal. Yet he was touted as one of the very best organ instructors in the country, and she had been extremely fortunate to obtain the slot as one of his pupils. She admired his string of past recorded flawless performances, and most of his former students had gone on to distinguish themselves in the organ world and to sing his praises for their successes.   Kreiser continued. "One can tell you love this E major. I'm pleased. What about the Reger? Are you working on it? I think we need to hear some of it next week."   Happy at his approval, her face fell at his next words as she turned away and muttered, "Yes, sir, I do love Franck."   Susan moved away and bent down to unlatch her organ shoes, her form slender and her shoulder-length auburn hair falling as a curtain shielding her eyes from his scrutiny. As Kreiser took her place at the organ bench and drew on an additional pedal stop while punching a piston, Susan countered lightly, a slight tremor betraying the defiance in her voice, "Would you just die if I told you I really don't like Reger's music that much and have no desire to date it, much less kiss it or go steady?" Her voice echoed through the gallery eerily.   She tensed, steeling herself for his angry reproof and lecture on the value of learning music one doesn't appreciate, and the greatness of Max Reger's contributions to modern music. But it didn't come. Instead, there was a report as of a pistol firing, and the loud discordant noise of something heavy landing on the manuals activated for full registration. As she wheeled and saw Kreiser slumping over the console, a second shot whistled above her head, and the antiquated heavy gilded chandelier overhead came crashing toward her. She covered her head and ducked toward the console flank as the air filled with the explosion of metal and glass fragments and the gallery was plunged into darkness. Thoroughly unnerved, Susan dropped to her knees. She could hear someone running rapidly downstairs and then the sound of the paneled sacristy door slamming.   Unmindful of the glass shards littering the floor, she clambered toward the organ console. "Doctor Kreiser, are you all right?" she called over the sound of the still depressed keys. She reached out toward where she had last seen him sitting on the bench. "Dr. Kreiser!" she cried again, as she stood and pulled him off the console. His weight shifted and fell heavily against her. Her stockinged feet slipped on the polished wood floor. Losing her balance, she fell backward, unable to check the momentum of his fall, and was pinned under his inert form coming to rest on top of her.   "Professor K!" she choked breathlessly. Stunned and winded, she lay there momentarily, giving in to the pain. Fearing the worst, she finally wiggled her arms free. She gently pushed at the tall man. It took some time to maneuver herself free of him. As she bent over him and her eyes adjusted to the dimness, she felt for the side of his neck to check for a pulse. The emergency exit lights flashed on, blinding her. She blinked. As she noted a dark stain on her white blouse and saw his lifeless eyes upon her, an exit wound of a bullet in the center of his forehead, she heard the sound of screaming, not realizing it emanated from her.              
(back) Subject: Re: Ein Feste Burg From: "Karl Moyer" <kmoyer@marauder.millersville.edu> Date: Fri, 07 May 2004 21:41:12 -0400   The chorales originated as unison MONOPHONIC melodies, thus with neither harmony nor polyphony. That=B9s still the best way for a congregation to sing them, preferably with the organist playing only melody or not playing at all.

(back) Subject: Re: Ein Feste Burg From: "Jarle Fagerheim" <jarle_fagerheim@yahoo.co.uk> Date: Sat, 8 May 2004 10:46:47 +0200 (CEST)   The hymnal of the Norwegian State Church does not include harmonizations, thus the congregational singing is always monophonic. That makes a possibility for the organist to use several different harmonizations in one single hymn. (There is a "chorale book" for the organist, with harmonizations).   The chorale book harmonizations are nice, but with a small organ (like most Norwegian organs) you can't vary them much. Therefore I sometimes take a chorale from one of Bach's cantatas, arrange it for organ, and modify it to suit the local variant of the tune. For the first hymn on Sunday, "Lovsyng v=E5r Herre" (Lobe den Herren), I'll be using four different harmonizations for the five stanzas; Stralsund Gesangebuch, Per Steenberg, and two by Bach. Maybe it's not "musicologically correct", but still it worked very well last time I did it.   -- Jarle   ______________________________________________________ F=E5 den nye Yahoo!
