It came as news to me that the OHS has been around for 350 years, though. Does that mean that Appleton and Tannenberg were once members?   John Speller   ----- Original Message ----- From: <niksiz@comcast.net> To: <pipechat@pipechat.org> Sent: Saturday, May 15, 2004 4:22 AM Subject: Curtis Organ Article and Benefit Concert     > Dear Friends, > > With great enthusiasm, I am writing to you about a wonderful article = that the > Penn Current published this week about the 10,731 pipe Curtis Organ at Irvine > Auditorium, located on the beautiful University of Pennsylvania campus = at 34th > and Spruce Streets in Philadelphia. > > You can find the full article at: > http://www.upenn.edu/pennnews/current/2004/051304/news1.html .

So, it is with ignorance I ask, What wedding? Does anyone ever play the rest of the Widor Symphony? Has anyone ever heard of a Yonnen? symphony for organ and orchestra? I attended a performance in Indianapolis nearly 30 years ago with, I believe, a Mr. Yount, who played with the Indy Orchestra. He took lessons from Dr. Bransford as did I.   And for the woman in me, Who got married? What did the bride wear? Did she have a long train? How about the bridesmaid's dresses? Were they colorful? How big of a bouquet?   Tina Hemphill

Crown Prince of Denmark married a lady from Tasmania yesterday afternoon, at the [Lutheran] Cathedral Church of Our Lady, in Copenhagen. (Names irrelevant.) The music listed looked . . . uh .. . . OK. There was certainly LOTS of it, of every conceivable variety and then some. She was a commoner, a real estate agent by profession, in Tasmania. Now she becomes Crown Princess.   I=B9ll be glad to send you more details (probably tomorrow or Monday) if you wish.

He took lessons from Dr. Bransford as did I.   Yes, people do play the whole Widor Symphonie V. I am guessing that you mean the Jongen "Symphonie Concertante" There are several recordings available if you check the Net.   >And for the woman in me, Who got married? What did the bride wear? Did = she >have a long train? How about the bridesmaid's dresses?

(back) Subject: Fantasie ...on Chorale of St. Wenceslas - Klicka From: "Karl Moyer" <kmoyer@marauder.millersville.edu> Date: Sat, 15 May 2004 22:34:40 -0400   This is embarrassing. I'd like to thank the person who offered a free on-line copy of "Fantasie de Concert sur le Chroal de St. Venceslas" by Jos= .. Klicka, Professeur d'Orgue au Conservatoire de Prague, and I have forgotten the kind person's name! Old age!   I did print out the music and also found a CD at the OHS: "Czech Organ Music 19th - 20th Century" with Jan van Wingerden, a Dutch organist on a large Van den Heuvel organ at Nieuwe Kerk in Katwijk aan Zee. (It's the sam= e firm who later installed a new, large organ in St. Eustache in Paris, where Bonnet and Marchal played.)   I've finally got to listen to this pieced, dated 1895 at Prague. It must be hard as the devil, and I think I understand the reticence of someon= e on one of these e-mail lists to take on the piece in short order.   It strikes me as rather much belonging to the era of Reger and Vierne, different though they were. The harmonic life "searches" rather much, but it is strongly contrapuntal at many points. I would think the third time before programming it to a "normal" layman audience, much as would I about the Reger sonatas. But perhaps this music has a worthy place in the sun.   Other workds on the CD are by Frantisek Musil (1852 - 1908), Frantisek Michalek (1895 - 1951), Bedrich Antonin Wiedermann (1883 - 1951), and Jiri Ropeck (b. 1922). I plan to pass my CD and copy of the particular composition to several friends in turn.   So I'm indebted to some kindly person for not only bringing it to our attention but providing us an on-line copy of it! Danke sch=F6n.   Karl E. Moyer Lancaster PA
