Not one but two Rolands on the stage. Sure the concert was sponsored by the local Roland rep, but who cares, it was fantastic. As for the literature, these guys were playing it before they wore long trousers.   dave wannabe organist

I am among those whose "recent opinions and postings" (in PIPORG-L) were not entirely complimentary, but I didn't realize that they were singing outdoors. Failing to see a single TV camera shot of the choir, and knowing that the organ was indoors, I assumed that the choir were also in the basilica. As things were, all we can do is congratulate them for their wonderful tone and the fact that they held up through the service at all.

From: "Randy Terry" <randy@peacham.homeip.net> Date: Tue, 19 Apr 2005 13:26:54 -0700     The movie, "The Shoes of the Fisherman," with Anthony Quinn, has been a favorite movie of mine for years. If any of you have not seen it, you should, as it is a very interesting movie that begins with the choice of a new pope (Quinn) who is very progressive, but the issues explored are more political than personal. It's a great movie.   I've watched with some detachment the proceedings of the Conclave, and = what was most interesting for me was how closely the historical aspects of liturgy, costume, etc, from the movie mirrored the real thing.   I wish that the Roman Catholic Church could be more open to new interpretations of tradition/dogma and theology - especially things like women's ordination and allowing priests to marry. Those things seem so = easy to me. On the other hand, I hate what is going on within the Anglican Communion where the conservative majority is making a good attempt to = punish the American and Canadian branches of the communion for their more liberal views on human sexuality. At least the difficulty with that issue is = easier to understand. I can't see any reason, other than tradition, to require a priest to be celibate. I think the bonds of a committed relationship = would make a person stronger, and more confident, and ultimately, build well equipped servant for God's people.   All that said - When the Conclave elected Pope Benedict XVI, I felt privileged to watch a thousand years of history continuing to unfold, and = I decided that the pope is in many ways a representative of the Universal Church, and as long as he is a man of integrity, humility, and compassion, that I could accept and respect his views, while not necessarily in agreement on all of them.   Randy Terry   -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org] Subject: Re: new pope   Darn, I was all set to play the Marche Pontificale from Widor's first symphony for my next postlude, but I'm so disappointed in their choice I might not.   Randy Runyon
