(back) Subject: RE: Sowande, Fela - long but fascinating! From: "Will Light" <will.light@btinternet.com> Date: Fri, 24 Sep 2004 15:31:40 +0100   For those who are not familiar with Fela Sowande and his life and work- = here is a brief piece I wrote for my programme notes when I did his "Go Down Moses" at a recital last year.   Chief Fela Sowande was born in Abeokuta, Southern Nigeria in May 1905 = into a musical family. His father, Emmanuel Sowande, was a minister of the = Gospel and one of the pioneers of church music in Nigeria. Sowande received his first lessons in music from his father. He credits his first contact = with Western music to his father, 'My father was a priest who taught at St Andrew's College, Oyo, the mission's teacher training institute. Music = was all around, and I suppose some of it rubbed off on me.' This encounter = later became a motivation for him to study European music in depth.=20 Another influence on his early musical training was Thomas Ekundayo Phillips. Under the tutelage of Phillips, as a chorister at the = Cathedral Church of Christ, Lagos, in the 1920s and 1930s, Sowande was exposed to various European sacred music and indigenous church music. He received private lessons in organ playing from Phillips while singing in the Cathedral Choir. Indeed, Phillips' playing on the organ, the choir = training and the organ lessons he received had a major impact on his aspiration = of becoming an organist-composer. He regularly listened to Phillips' = playing of Bach, Rheinberger, and others. Sowande sang in the Cathedral Church of Christ Choir throughout his childhood and received his early education = at C.M.S. Grammar School and King's College in Lagos. Sowande taught = briefly at a public school for about three years and later joined the government service after completing his education at King's College.=20 At the age of 27, Sowande decided to become a civil engineer and went to London to study in 1935. After six months, he changed his mind and = decided to study music because he could not afford to pay the tuition for civil engineering. The need to earn his own livelihood made regular attendance = at a recognized musical institution impossible, and so he had to study privately under several tutors, among them Dr. Edmund Rubbra, and Dr. G. = D. Cunningham - for organ lessons. In 1943 he obtained his F.R.C.O. with credit, being awarded the Limpus Prize for Theoretical work, the Harding Prize for tests and the Organ and the Read Prize for the highest = aggregate marks for the whole examination. During his stay in England, he earned recognition for himself as a dance-pianist, band-leader and Hammond-organist. He was associated professionally with many artistes including J. Rosamond Johnson and = Adelaide Hall, and recalled with pleasure the many occasions on which he played = duets with "Fats" Waller at the Florida Club in Mayfair, where he had a swing band. During the war he enlisted with the R.A.F., but was released at = the request of the Ministry of Information to go to the Colonial Film Unit = as Musical Adviser. Shortly after his release, he was also appointed = organist and Choirmaster to the West London Methodist Mission - playing at the Kingsway Hall. His many compositions are based on African melodies, including a tone-poem "Africania" and his African Suite for Strings. In = 1953 the Director of the Nigerian Broadcasting Service asked him to return to Nigeria as his Musical Director and on his return he was made Honorary Organist at the Cathedral Church of Christ, Lagos. He had the honor of = being admitted as a Member of the British Empire (MBE) by Queen Elizabeth II = in 1956 for his "distinguished services in the Cause of Music." The Federal Government of Nigeria awarded him with the Member of the Federation of Nigeria (NFN) in 1964. Fela Sowande was commissioned by the Nigerian = Federal Ministry of Information, upon Nigeria's liberation from British rule, to compose the nation's "National Anthem" in 1962. In 1968, the State of = Lagos awarded Chief Sowande the "Bagbile of Lagos" (the Traditional = Chieftaincy Award) in recognition of his research into Yoruba folklore. Later the University of Ife conferred on him the Doctorate Honoris Causa in Music = in 1972. In his later life he moved to America, taking up various = University posts including that of Professor of Ethnomusicology and Black Studies = at Howard University, the University of Pittsburgh and Visiting = Distinguished Professor of Pan-African Studies at Kent State University. He devoted himself to the study and teaching of Philosophy based on African thought patterns. He died in 1987.   How's that for an interesting career?   Will Light Coventry UK <a href=3D"callto://will-light"><img src=3D"http://goodies.skype.com/graphics/skypeme_btn_orange.gif" border=3D"0"></a>   -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org] On Behalf Of = Noel Stoutenburg Sent: 24 September 2004 01:47 To: PipeChat Subject: Re: Sowande, Fela   James M.

The singer sings only one pitch, but the changing overtones they produce by this particular technique can be heard above the sustained tone-and it does sound much like a flute! This technique (in the instance that we used it) was sung by a few selected singers (namely, those who could DO it!) and the rest of us sang a sustained drone-like chord with which the overtones reacted.   =20   I'm sorry I can't be more specific about the name of the piece, country, or composer at this point, but I'll do some research and find it out...   =20   Daniel H.   Springfield, Missouri   =20   =20   =20  
(back) Subject: Some interesting new updates from Organs and Organists Online From: "John Foss" <harkat@kat.forthnet.gr> Date: Fri, 24 Sep 2004 23:54:56 +0300   This is to let you know that Tim Grenz in his role of webmaster has = updated the organs and organists online website with several new additions. Of particular interest, in view of the current "duel" in progress is the addition of the Healey Willan Chorale Prelude on Gelobt sei Gott, recorded on the restored 4 manual TC Lewis organ in St Paul's Cathedral, Melbourne = by Dr June Dixon, one of Australia's most distinguished organists. The organ was originally built in 1890 and restored by Harrison and Harrison in = 1990. Dr Nixon, who has been organist at St Paul's Cathedral since 1973,is one = of the few - perhaps the only - woman to hold this position at an Anglican Cathedral. Dr Nixon has composed several works for organ and also made several CD's, details of which can be found on her website http://www.junenixon.com/ I am very grateful to Dr Nixon for her = permission to use this, and also a recording by her of the Sketch in F Major by = Alfred Floyd. Dr Alfred Floyd was a predecessor of Dr Nixon as organist at the Cathedral. Her records are available from the Organ Historical Society, = as are her compositions, which are published by Kevin Mayhew. Quite by chance I chose the same work from Douglas Marshall's CD at the Marshall and Ogeltree Epiphany Organ of Trinity Church, Wall Street, New York City, so you can hear the same work performed by two outstanding professional organists in a "non combative" situation. Also available on the downloads section is Mark Quarmby, assistant = organist of St Andrew's Cathedral, Sydney, playing the Toccata on "O filii et = filiae" by Lynwood Farnham, and Vesper Voluntary op 14 no. 3 by Elgar, which show off this 1998 restoration by LeTourneau of the 4 manual 53 stop organ, originally built by Hill in 1866, to excellent effect. Not to be missed :) - 2 Bach Chorale Preludes recorded by Colin Mitchell, organist of St Joseph's Roman Catholic church, Keighley, Yorkshire, = England, which has a 1974 II/11 Laycock & Bannister instrument, voiced by Dennis Thurlow have also been added. They are "Liebster Jesu wir sind hier" and "Nun komm der Heiden Heiland". I have also added 2 more recordings from my Australian visit, Bach's Chorale Prelude on "Christ unser Herr zum Jordan kam" BWV 684 recorded at = St Paul's Cathedral, Melbourne, and two movements from Tournemire's L'Orgue Mystique no 36, recorded on the III/52 Von Beckerath organ in the Great = Hall of Sydney University. Today's additions are completed by "A Little Improvisation" played by Jon Kristian Fjellestad on the II/17 organ at Hoeggen Church, Trondheim, = Norway.

(back) Subject: Re: Shipping large heavy Objects From: "Colin Mitchell" <cmys13085@yahoo.co.uk> Date: Fri, 24 Sep 2004 23:24:50 -0700 (PDT)   Hello,   I am not an expert in Canadian or American trucking, but here in the UK, there are private contractors who advertise for "backloads" at reduced prices in the various transport magazines.   Basically, they go one way at agreed full rate for a client, but then scout around for anything coming back the other way which might cover the cost of fuel/wages only.   If one is not TOO fussy about schedules and exact times, it might be worth approaching some of the private "one man" operaters rather than the big trunking companies; especially if everything is ready crated.   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK         --- John Vanderlee <jovanderlee@vassar.edu> wrote:   > > I KNOW THIS IS WAY OFF TOPIC > > For anyone who has ever shipped heavy objects. > ie( Leslie type 122 speaker) > > or of course a wind chest or bellows. > > What company would handle an object that heavy > and any idea what > >it would cost to ship say from Nova Scotia to > Montreal Quebec?       _______________________________ Do you Yahoo!?
