Whenever I've heard this word pronounced in church as well as in the contemporary Christian songs I hear on the radio, I've always heard the accent on the first and third = syllables. I sense that the stronger accent is on the third.   MAR-a-NATH-a.   Regarding the "a" sound of the 3rd syllable, I've heard it both ways: the short "a" as in hat as well as the more British "a" that we Americans use = in "ah".   Hope that helps, Keith

I was horrified a year or so ago when a popular group was engaged to sing the National Anthem at a major sporting event.   Their text started off so affected that I thought (at first) they were singing a translation of our National Anthem in another language (not American English, . . . or even in proper British English).   This group was very popular with the "kids" and were selling a lot of pop CDs for their entertainment, but it was somehow inappropriate to brutalize the National Anthem that way.   When the English have their big show in Royal Albert Hall every year, I have no problem understanding the diction of those invited to sing.

His URLs (below) are quite worth checking. They contain his e-mail addresses.   He writes:   I live in Melbourne, and conduct "The Scandinavian Choir of Melbourne", which is based at the Swedish Church in Melbourne, where I am also a part time organist (one Sunday/month). More about the choir at http://skut.svenskakyrkan.se/melbourne/choir.html Other Sundays I play the organ and conduct the choir at St. Andrews Uniting Church, Footscray. You can see more at http://www.footscray.unitingchurch.org.au/choir.htm If you scroll down to the list of Anthems we sing, you can see that it is a VERY traditional choir, singing anthems and cantatas by John Stainer, J. H. Maunder, Caleb Simper etc. =20 I was born in Sweden in 1947, and saw my grandfather play the organ when I was about 7 years old. Decided that I wanted to be an organist when I grew up. My family suggested I should get a 'real' job, so I became a telecommunications engineer [Ericsson], but had music as a hobby, e.g. playing for 17=20 years in Marie Bebadales Catholic church in Stockholm, and starting a choir there.   Back to the list:   NOTE the mention of Caleb Simper. I want to encourage Simperites to get in touch with this man! I have the impression that he=B9s pretty sharp; I have not introduced him to THIS list, but someone should. Feel free!

I guess that means Tim and David (or is it George and Peter?; Andrew and Stephen?=8Bwhatever). But it's a lot more than that (I think they agree).   I am tired of everything else, these past several months.   I'm not against anybody, but SURE love this (hate the word) fellowship.   Thanks again.   Alan
