I don't remember what it was verbatim, but it fit right in. my ARRANGEMENT of Come Sweet Rest and Alain Litanies went well too! Everything seemed to fit just right today. Pastor read the note on the header of Litanies and requested me to do it for prelude on Good Friday or Palm Sunday.         __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? Yahoo!

Which is the whole point of hymn >selection and singing, is it not?   The reason why I questioned the Lenten-ness (Lentenosity?) of Desiree''s service is that when she suddenly left St. Turibius forsaking the big = Rodgers organ project, and took the post at this church, she told me in an email = that this was a "eucharistic church" and that they followed the church year and celebrated feast days. I was not sure what a eucharistic church was, = being that I am a lowly Baptist, and having worked a whole career in non-liturgical = churches. I thought that any church that celebrated communion was a eucharistic church. I finally figured out that she meant it was a "liturgical" = church, but as I pointed out to her, historically, the Evangelical and Reformed Church, and =   it's sucessor denomination, the United Church of Christ, are NOT = liturgical churches, as understood by members of the Episcopal Church, or it's = offshoots, the Roman Catholic Church, any of the Lutheran denominations, or the Moravian Church. For a congregation with a pastor who follows the lectionary, this = was not what I expected or understood them to do, because Desiree' has been = telling me that the church stuck by the liturgical year so carefully. If a big = deal hadn't been made of how liturgically astute the church was, I wouldn't = have questioned it. In this area of the country, many of the Presbyterian, Congregational and United Methodist churches are fairly strict in their = observance of the liturgical year. Of course, I am talking about churches in cities and =   towns, not in the country. There are a couple of Baptist churches here, = too, that are fairly high--one even processes with a choir in cassocks, a = processional cross, banners, and the Bible. Needless to say, they strictly observe the liturgical year!   In my church, we loosely follow the liturgical year, BUT we have other things that we observe, too. For instance, with February being = African-American History Month, and my church being predominantly Black, we also honor = that. Tying Lent and African-American History month together is difficult. Last = year, during February, I only played music by Black composers, this year, = obviously, I am trying to also observe Lent--well, there aren't that many Lenten compositions by Black composers, so this morning I played a work by Paul = Manz, but for the postlude, I played an arrangement of "Soon I Will Be Done With the =   Troubles of This World" by Calvin Taylor.   Our pastor was out of town today, so two of the Associate Ministers = preached, as well as one guest minister. The Associate Ministers stayed with the Lenten theme, but the guest minister didn't, he focused more on the resurrection--pretty much a Baptist sort of theme LOL.   I don't have a problem with churches that chose to do their own = thing--mine does it often. However, I was just questioning things because Desiree' = has told me how observant her church is of feast days and the liturgical year. = I just didn't see much observant of the First Sunday of Lent.   Monty Bennett

If there is a music research library nearby, you might call and see if they have the book, and if they have the time to see if they can find the tune from the incipit you provide.   ns  
(back) Subject: Re: Lent 1, at my church From: "Desiree'" <nicemusica@yahoo.com> Date: Sun, 13 Feb 2005 11:55:18 -0800 (PST)   Actually, I wondered as I heard the sermon, which was certainly about Lent, why he picked such festive hymns. We even closed with the pastors own text for "Rise Up, O Church of God" to the tune Festal Song. As I mentioned, the Call to Worship did make for good use of Lobe Den Herren. Even my bosses wife, who is Chair of the Music Committee and in the Choir says that her father, who was a UCC pastor said that "...Joe can find more hymns in the hymnal that I have NEVER heard of" She pointed hoe much of a "Word Guy" he is. Even when I suggested "Lo, He Comes with Clouds Descending" for Advent...he mentioned that the words, for his taste were best suited for "kingdom-tide". He also uses "Joy to the World" at other times during the year.   I just go in and do what's given. Im pleased enough and comfortable with his selections that I really don't have anything to fuss about.   Another thing that was a suprise to me when I started this church, was that they used Wine for communion. As far as I had known, Lutherans and Episcopalians were the only Protestants that did this.         __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? Take Yahoo! Mail with you!

And who is Vulnavia anyway?   I think the march is a wonderful piece and, despite the quality of recordin= g in the film, works really well on organ.   As for Aida, you need a chariot pulled by six white horses and a full conti= ngent of trumpets to really pull it off; that could increase the cost of th= e wedding by as much as 3%. You've got to budget for these things. :-)     ----- Original Message ----- From: Glenda <gksjd85@direcway.com> To: "'PipeChat'" <pipechat@pipechat.org> Subject: RE: Mendelssohn ... was Bach: Toccata in D Minor Date: Sun, 13 Feb 2005 10:15:12 -0600   >=20 > Shoot me if I'm wrong, but I'm almost certain it can be found in one of > the Oxford organ anthologies.
