(back) Subject: Whats on your menu for Jour de Mama's From: "Paul Kealy" <imkealy@yahoo.com> Date: Sat, 8 May 2004 11:29:57 -0700 (PDT)   Soloist sings My Task, "To love some one more dearly every day, to help a wandring child to find = the way, ..." replacing the words, "This is my task" with "This, Mother's task." and final verse, "And lay her loved ones at the Master's feet, This crowns her task"    
(back) Subject: Mother's day From: "Richard Weber" <rweber@aero.net> Date: Sat, 8 May 2004 13:20:57 -0500   Since I work in a Liturgical Church, nothing is done for mother's day, = but we do sing Now thank we all our God for the closing hymn, which in = the 3rd verse of the 1st stanza goes "who from our mother's arms hath = blessed us on our way."      
(back) Subject: Schlocky Mother's Day solos From: <RMB10@aol.com> Date: Sat, 8 May 2004 16:59:38 EDT   The discussion about what is "proper" or not for Mother's Day made me = think of what I heard a couple of years ago when I was still doing interim work = and chose to take a Sunday off and visit my grandparents in Ft. Lauderdale on Mother's Day, since it also is the same weekend of my Grandfather's = birthday. My mother was also visiting them that weekend, so I earned bonus points for getting to see her on Mother's Day. Anyway, we all went to church = together--my grandparents are Catholic--and during Communion I had to sit through the = god-awful bellowing of the jazz-club wannabe "cantor", since being Protestant, I couldn't partake. I wished that I had been able to move around and escape = from the drivel that she was belting out accompanied by the warbling Rodgers with = trems hiked to full throb. Now don't get me wrong here, I love slush and I love =   theatre organ, but when I go to a Liturgical church, I want real organ = playing. I have slush and trems anytime I want them. I want some full swell with = boxes slammed shut once in a while, too, but the dude who was playing the organ = made the organ sound appropriate for a bad 1960's horror movie funeral home = scene. At then end of Communion, the "Post-Communion Meditation," this cantor launched into a full vibrato rendition of that tacky mother's day favorite = that spells out M-O-T-H-E-R. "M is for the many things.....etc." If it had = not been at the end of mass, my mother and I were going to walk out. Not only was = it inappriopriate for a church service, it was the worst singing and playing = I had ever heard before......out of tune, vibrato that a truck could have driven =   through (the singer), and the organist thought that he was playing at the = ball game. It was a new epitome of TACKY! I was trying to come up with new words--T is for the tasteless way you are singing, etc., etc.   According to my grandparents, the cantor at this church is the only = musician, there is no choir and she does all the singing. This is a LARGE parish in =   Ft. Lauderdale, predominantly white, upper-middle class, with a huge = school, but there is no children's choir program. It's a sad state of affairs in the music program, but this solo took the cake for schlock and drivel.   Monty Bennett

Perhaps it's the sound of breaking glass that motivates your method in which case I'd be happy to send you a list of pipe organ builders (in private of course) who might be very interested in your services as voicer. By the way, be sure to turn off the electricity before using your method. Many of us appreciate your anti venom.   Cheers Mike   "Milo R.
