(back) Subject: Organ festival in Bod=F8 From: "Jarle Fagerheim" <jarle_fagerheim@yahoo.co.uk> Date: Tue, 08 Feb 2005 14:22:39 +0100   Bod=F8 is the capital of Nordland county, inbetween Lofoten and the Polar Circle. The city has been nicely re-built after total destruction by German bombers during WW2. Bod=F8 Cathedral is among the most beautiful modern buildings in Norway, unfortunately not with the most beautiful organ, but it's still a wonderful venue for all kinds of music. The parish churches of R=F8nvik and Bodin have fine new organs by Ryde and F=FChrer (sic), respectively.   Bod=F8 International Organ Festival will take place for the fourth time from March 30 to April 3. Its website at http://www.biof.no is mostly in Norwegian, but here comes a summary in English, just in case any of you are going to Northern Norway in those days!   There will be master classes and recitals by Christopher Bowers-Broadbent, Hans-Ola Ericsson (Pite=E5/Bremen), Gary Verkade (Pite=E5), Wolfgang Zerer (Hamburg), and Thomas Willstedt (Lund). Other performers include =D8ystein J=E6ger, Kjersti Nilsen, =D8rjan Horn = Johansen, Tonje Braaten, Lena Weman-Ericsson (flute), Bugge Wesseltoft (piano), Procul Harum, and the Paul Wagnberg Organ Unit.   Bj=F8rn Andor Drage and Svein Malmbekk will present the "Nordlandsk salmebok" (North Norwegian Hymnal). Svein Tore Ring=F8en will direct a workshop in Norwegian folk singing techniques. The "Fridthjov Anderssen Competition" for organists 13-20 years old will be arranged for the first time.   The final concert will feature concerti for organs and orchestra by Handel, Haydn, Poulenc, and Bowers-Broadbent. That even beats the Slee Hall event in Buffalo during the OHS Convention!   To me, it looks like this year's festival will be a real treat. I'm not associated with the festival myself, except as a regular participant. Contact information can be found at http://www.biof.no/?ac_id=3D11. Do consider attending if you can!   - Jarle http://jarle.moo.no

Bailey" <tom@wsumc.com> Date: Tue, 8 Feb 2005 12:14:57 -0500   Does anyone know of a choral library where we can borrow (or rent at a = reasonable cost) scores for the Kod=E1ly Misa Brevis? Also, another question concerning the Kod=E1ly. Is the original organ = score the one that appears below the choral/vocal score? He scored it = later for orchestra, but I wondered if there is a special organ score.   Thomas Lee Bailey - Director of Music=20 Washington Street United Methodist Church=20 115 S.

(back) Subject: An 8-rank Wonder (x-posted) From: "Stephen Williams" <stepwill@enter.net> Date: Tue, 8 Feb 2005 12:27:42 -0500   I just returned from leading a hymn festival and playing a recital at St. Katherine's Episcopal Church in Williamston, Michigan, a small thriving community near Lansing. The reason for sharing this with you is to tell of my complete surprise at how totally successful 8 ranks of pipes can be = when the tonal and stop-layout scheme is thoroughly and sensibly thought out, = and carried out without compromise. I was quite honored to be asked to give = this demo recital, but I must admit that it gave me pause at the beginning. As = it turned out, I programmed some pretty demanding repertoire, and was hoping for a miracle. I have to say, without reservation, that this is one of the most satisfying instruments I have ever played, including the ones at = least nine times the size. If you get the chance, go play it. I think you'll be absolutely amazed. And gratified.

I thought it said that the divers were not sure what they were looking at, but others identified the parts.   Oh well. I thought it all of interest to the gang.   Jim

(back) Subject: Kodaly Misa Brevis From: "Millie & David Kenney" <kenn411@bellsouth.net> Date: Tue, 8 Feb 2005 21:51:45 -0500   Dear Mr. Bailey -   Have you tried contacting the University of Virginia Music Dept.? I would = think there would be scores available in the University Singers library or = old Glee Club files. If not, the Music Library in Old Cabell Hall may = have a reduction you could copy for short term use. I think Diane Walker = is still the music librarian. . .don't know who's in the music dept. now, = but Don Loach may be part-time there now (I think he's "officially" = retired but may still be conducting some there).   Hope this helps.   David Kenney (I was Loach's librarian for the Singers, and I used to work = in the music library as a student, but that was in the late 80s and early = 90s)   Millie & David Kenney 135 18th Street, NE Cleveland, TN 37311   (423) 473-9705

We had a full house, at 4:00 on = Super Bowl Sunday, with standing room only, and many of the "standers" = were teenagers! Everyone LOVES the sounds of the organ. Ours is almost a = twin to yours in terms of layout of stops, etc. Ours is in a chamber with = 10 speaking pipes on the facade (the other 599 are very comfortably = residing "in the back").   The chamber is resonant, and the organ really sings well in the room = (which is fairly dry). But, thanks to Russel Oliver of Oliver Pipe Organ = Company (and Russel's voicer, Fred Heffner, who voiced the pipes for their = original installation in Chattanooga) we have an instrument that is truly = beyond description.   Yes, 8 ranks can be surprisingly successful when, as you said, "the tonal = and stop-layout scheme is thoroughly and sensibly thought out, and carried = out without compromise." Austin did bang-up job in 1981, and Oliver did = a great job in 2004-2005 (just finished preparing the organ for the = recital).   Thanks for sharing your experience and allowing others like myself to = reinforce Kegg, Austin, and others who are not afraid to build a "small" = instrument.   Take care, David Kenney   Millie & David Kenney 135 18th Street, NE Cleveland, TN 37311   (423) 473-9705

We had a nasty virus pass through our choir starting at Christmas Eve Midnight Mass -- went from section to section = starting with the basses. One of my basses was so sick he lost 15 pounds! What a =   way to diet! After that virus we had a really nasty stomach flu pass = through the choir [hmmm, I hadn't intended a double entendre, but it's there]. = I'm hoping our pestilence is over for the year! Regarding console cleansing, those germs are very dead by now unless they =   have a warm moist environment, and I'm REALLY hoping that doesn't = describe anyone's console! A damp cloth will clean the keys and stop knobs well = enough. That which doesn't kill us makes us stronger. :) My worst sick = experience was when I came down with chicken pox about three weeks before my wedding = -- sick as a dog and looked really bad. Had to play a wedding a day or two = after diagnosed -- not fun, but got through it and avoided people as much as possible. Was well by my wedding, but that was a real scare! Our = wedding was wonderful, and honeymooned in Munich, Salzburg, and Vienna, almost nine = years ago now. Which church do you play at in Chicago? I'm just north in Skokie.
