(back) Subject: Johann Christian Heinrich Rinck. Was: Rinck's "Rondo for a Flute stop". From: <Hell-Concerts@t-online.de> Date: Wed, 29 Sep 2004 13:58:22 +0200   Hi Steve, that is all very interesting. Felix loved Rinck's preludes for his services, when he was still in Germany. In particular, when the organ was a "romantic" instrument of the early 20th century (organbuilder Voit comes to mind) where Bach wouldn't really work very well. And, Rinck's preludes were sorted in keys. So he could select the prelude dependant on the key of the entrance hymn. Well, that was long time ago :-)   BTW: Rinck was the last organ student of J.S.Bach   Best wishes   Hans     -----Original Message----- Date: Tue, 28 Sep 2004 20:07:28 +0200 Subject: Re: Rinck's "Rondo for a Flute stop". From: Stephen Best <stevebest@usadatanet.net> To: PipeChat <pipechat@pipechat.org>   I have the Rinck "Rondo" as part of "Rink's Practical Organ School, carefully revised: with the German directions and terms translated into English and the pedal part printed on a separate staff," edited by W.T. Best, published by Novello, date unknown. This is hard bound book, 214 large pages 10 by 14. The "Rondo" is part of the "Flute Concerto," number 182 in this book. The whole concerto consists of 16 pages; movements are "Allegro maestoso," "Adagio," and "Rondo." The opus 55 applies to the entire method book, not just the concerto.   Note: "Rinck" is spelled "Rink" in the edition I have, and W.T. Best is not, as far as know, in any way related to me.   Steve Best in Utica, NY   BlueeyedBear@aol.com wrote:   > In a message dated 9/27/04 4:18:16 PM Pacific Daylight Time, > jmdkimo@yahoo.com writes: > >> I am most intrigued!

(back) Subject: RE: Thanks; question From: "Daniel Hancock" <dhancock@brpae.com> Date: Wed, 29 Sep 2004 08:51:51 -0500   Can you give me other examples of charming pieces where   the pedal part sings along (maybe the melody or maybe not) on a 4' stop?   I can off the top of my head think of Bach's "Nun freut euch . . ." and   the "Lobe de Herren" sound-alike, Vaughan-Williams' Prelude on Song 13   and Krebs' "Wachet auf". Are there others that I might look at?   =20   Thanks (it took 4 tries to spell that one).   =20   Glenda Sutton   gksjd85@direcway.com   =20   Glenda-   =20   A favorite of mine has always been the Walter chorale prelude on "Old One-Hundredth." I'm afraid I can't tell you what German text it is listed under, but you should be able to find it easily in any collection of Walther chorale preludes.   =20   Daniel Hancock   Springfield, Missouri   =20

I keep meaning to make an arrangement of it ... I really should get a round tuit ... there's a note in the W/S edition that you don't hold as long as the printed score says, somewhere at the end ... I don't have it in front of me at the moment.   *I* used to play the second verse of the big "O Lamm Gottes" in the Great Eighteen that way too (grin) ... bad me!   Cheers,   Bud     Daniel Hancock wrote:   > Can you give me other examples of charming pieces where > > the pedal part sings along (maybe the melody or maybe not) on a 4' stop? > > I can off the top of my head think of Bach's "Nun freut euch . . ." and > > the "Lobe de Herren" sound-alike, Vaughan-Williams' Prelude on Song 13 > > and Krebs' "Wachet auf".

(back) Subject: Columbus (OH) First Congregational Kimball - First concert From: <Wuxuzusu@aol.com> Date: Wed, 29 Sep 2004 19:35:05 EDT   Greetings all,   Employees of Peebles-Herzog Pipe Organ Company and First Congregational Church volunteers were the first to hear the Kimball 4/66 played in = concert last Friday.   Tim Smith presented a short yet varied program for the gathered workers. = He started with a selection that featured the Echo division, then as the composition continued, the music moved distinctively to the chancel, one = rank at a time.   He offered a "storm" piece which was a popular type of song during the = late 19th and early 20th century. As the storm clouds gathered musically, Mike Herzog, seated in the front pew, put on a yellow rain slicker, picked up = his umbrella and walked up to the console. He then held the opened umbrella = over Tim as he played on. Of course, Mike checked the skies occasionally for any signs = of the storm clearing up. It finally did, and Mike retreated to his pew just = in time for the ending of the piece.   Tim showed off the Kimball's strings during one piece, and several of the reeds during another one. The only disappointment was that Tim did not = feature the Kimball's Tuba Mirabilis. I guess that we'll wait until Dene Barnard, organist emeritus, presents his portion of the Congregational Concerts on = February 13, 2005. He promises that "half the congregation will end up in Broad = Street" in fromt of the church.   October 17, 2004, might be the first time we hear the Tuba Mirabilis when Thomas Murray is at the console.   October 31, 2004, will find 125 voices assembled in the chancel = accompanied by both the Kimball and von Beckerath organs, and conducted by three = organists, Paul Thornock (St. Joseph Cathedral - Columbus), Joel Mathias (Broad = Street Presbyterian Church - Columbus) and Timothy Smith (First Church Choral = Society - Columbus).   For more information and six other program information in this concert season, go to www.first-church.org   Musically, Stan Krider
