(back) Subject: TUNING STABILITY: WOODEN STOPPED GEDECKT (x post) From: <ScottFop@aol.com> Date: Sat, 9 Apr 2005 22:12:25 EDT   Hello all I hope to get some advice from my friends and colleagues here on the = list, especially those who are organ builders. My house organ, built in 1959 by Hermann Schlicker, has a lovely 8' = stopped Gedeckt made of wood. It is very beautiful and has an incredibly gentle = and sweet, lyrical quality about it. However, it does not hold tune that = well. The stoppers are covered with red felt instead of the standard leather. = The temperature and humidity in my home are well maintained all year round, = so I don't believe that is the bigger issue here. I am wondering if the softness of the felt would cause the stoppers to = not be seated as firmly as leather would and if that could be causing the = tuning discrepancies. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks! -Scott Scott F.

(back) Subject: ORGELBUCHLEIN AND THE LITURGICAL YEAR (x post) From: <ScottFop@aol.com> Date: Sat, 9 Apr 2005 22:36:25 EDT   Hello This may be a rather unusual question, but does anyone have any = information as to which chorales in the Orgelbuchlein are supposed to be played on specific Sundays of the Liturgical Year? Obviously I have played many of these chorales for years and years, and = it is obvious when many of them are supposed to be played, at least = seasonally. (Ie: "Nun komm" for Advent I or Advent in general in non-Liturgical churches, "In Dir" for New Year's, "Herr Gott nun schleuss" for Epiphany, = "Christ Lag" for Lent and Good Friday etc.) More recently, however, I have become very curious as to which specific chorales were meant to be played on specific Sundays. While Bach's = Lutheran Liturgical year was not an identical parallel to the Roman Catholic or = Anglican Liturgical years, there were and are, none the less, very telling similarities. I even did a Google search but didn't find much on this. I am also interested in which editions you all might use. Since college days I have been a huge fan of the Concordia, edited by John David = Peterson (who's right here in town at the University of Memphis!) I find that = edition very clear and easy to read, and the inclusion of the individual chorales = and scholarly commentary make it a very worthwhile edition. I have = recommended it to countless friends, students and colleagues through the years. In = fact, I think I am on my third copy of it. I have one at home for my little Schlicker practice organ and one at church for use there, as well as my = original from college years which is marked up beyond belief and from which I = transfer my handwritten notes and cues. One of its covers is literally hanging by a thread! LOL I also have a complete set of the Bach organ works that I = have not yet used. It was put out a few years ago by Barenreiter, and I refer to = it as the "big blue box set." Any assistance here or sources to research will be much appreciated. = Thanks! Scott F.

But then again, I'm not across any pond.   There is no standard Anglican hymnal in the UK. Not sure about other branches but I think Canada may have a standard book.   Commonly used books in mainstream (cathedral and collegiate) = establishments include Hymns Ancient and Modern - Revised, The English Hymnal, The New English Hymnal, and Common Praise. These are all published by The Canterbury Press except The English Hymnal which is OUP.   I think Hymns Ancient and Modern - Revised is out of print (pity) but the others should be available from amazon.co.uk among others.   Michael     -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org] On Behalf Of Glenda Sent: Saturday, April 09, 2005 9:25 PM To: 'PipeChat' Subject: Anglican hymnal   A friend wrote me this afternoon wanting to know what the standard Anglican hymnal is nowadays.

There are lots of mountains, lots of small towns, and lots of police needing extra revenue either way, but more so on 220.!   I live in Wytheville VA, which is about 1/2 way between the two places, and I travel both roads frequently. On a map it may not look it, but the best way is: 52 N to just south of Mt. Airy NC I-74 (follow signs to Wytheville) I-77N I-81 N I-64 However, if it is very windy when you are on 52, stay on 52 through Mt. Airy up to Fancy Gap. THen pick up 77. If winds are extreme there are many accidents involving semis on the lower stretch of 77. It will take between 4 & 5 hours, but is a really beautiful drive. Enjoy!

On Ash Wednesday, I had allowed the imposition of the ashes to proceed in silence for about 5 seconds before the audio/visual operator in the back "came to the rescue" with one of those dreadful MIDI hymns on CD. Aaarrrggghhh! I interrupted that schlock without delay.   -WG   > Today (Saturday) I had to play for a funeral.
