Concert and recording artist Christa Rakich is co-chair of the Organ Department at New England Conservatory in Boston. She is also Artist-in-Residence at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Brookline, MA and serves as organist at Saint Mark the Evangelist Parish in West Hartford. Rakich's performing career has taken her throughout the United States and Europe. Of her featured concert at the Year 2000 National AGO Convention = in Seattle, critics said, "Rakich's wonderfully natural ebb and flow went = right to the music's heart. The urbane charm and wit certainly came across, as did just the right bit of wildness..." [The American Organist, October 2000]. "Christa Rakich's performance and playing ability were exquisitely matched to the justly famous Flentrop at St. Mark's Cathedral, Seattle. = She seemed to innately sense the length of phrase for the magnificent acoustic of this formidable box of a room..." [The Diapason, November 2000]. More information can be found at http://www.christarakich.com/ Her Sunday program will feature music by Bach, Brahms, Mendelsson, Widor = and Demessieux, as well as some improvisation! The South Church organ is an untouched 1949 Aeolian-Skinner instrument, designed by G. Donald Harrison, and restored to its original condition by the Thompson-Allen Company in 1995. It consists of 31 ranks on 3 manuals. The stoplist and more information can be found at http://www.hartfordago.org/south_congregational_hartford.htm This event concludes a day of celebration for South Church which = celebrates its 335th year on February 22.

Is there someone out there with the necessary skills and inclination to take on this task? This person would also need the authority to act on behalf of the sponsoring organization.   Are there others who would be willing to assist in the effort to solicit organ builders and other donors for contributions? Keep in mind that organ builders are for-profit enterprises, so the solicitors should be able to explain just how a contribution would be recognized, and how it would enhance their company=92s good will.   Digital organs: Yes I know that for most (all) of us, nothing compares to actual wood and metal pipes. Nonetheless, there are several manufacturers who go to great lengths to produce an organ that faithfully reproduces the sound of =93the real thing=94. If going digital would mean the difference between continuance and discontinuance of the competition, doesn=92t it seem that a little bit of compromise might be in order? Also, think of the possibilities: some manufacturer of digital organs may jump at the opportunity to provide an instrument for the competition. (Even I was able to convince a local keyboard store to lend a piano for my kids=92 recital.)   I noticed that percussion and guitar competitions are also affected. Would there be a possibility of forming a =93trilateral coalition=94? It=92s been done before, just check your history books! (Sorry for this little nonsense - I just couldn=92t resist.)   Finally, it seems that someone really needs to take ownership of this. Otherwise, it will be just another missed opportunity.     Lee Groen groenlee@yahoo.com (Unfortunately, no relation to Aarnoud de Groen)           =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D Lee A. Groen GroenLee@Yahoo.com  
(back) Subject: Random thought over a cocktail...hymntunes From: "Desiree'" <nicemusica@yahoo.com> Date: Wed, 16 Feb 2005 12:17:55 -0800 (PST)   Last night, while with non-musician friends having a cocktail, I had one of those random thoughts that we musicians have.   I thought about hymntunes that are interchangable with texts.   I remember at my church in Washington, we sang "All Hail the Power..." shortly after I started. I suggeted "Coronation", but the church knew "Diadem" more. SO...we sang both tunes, consecutive Sundays. And I actually have a big liking for "Miles Lane". My preference is for "Coronation" then "Miles Lane"   Similar is "Love Divine..." I find "Hyfrydol" in the 1982, and most Catholic Music resources. Of course most Protestants sing this to "Beecher" and "Praise the Lord, Ye Heavens..." or "Alleluia, Sing to Jesus" to "Hyfrydol"   A loveley tune for "Rejoice the Lord is King" is "Laus Dei" in LBW. I THINK thats the name of it.   What tunes to you prefer for the familiar hymns? What tunes do your churches seem more fond of?         __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? Yahoo!
