All of those centuries of ineffective worship!     Jim         * For all of you nit-pickers out there, I know there were a number of electric action organs prior to the turn of the century, but they were the exception for the most part.     (Aside) Does this mean that the thousands of tubular-pneumatic instruments did or didn't work? ** I know that Scott originally said that he didn't LIKE tracker organs in liturgical spaces, but the thread seems to have drifted to functionality.    
(back) Subject: Fisk Dedication/running people down From: "Beau Surratt" <Beau.Surratt@theatreorgans.com> Date: Sun, 27 Feb 2005 19:39:47 -0600   Hello All! Just a couple of comments about these related posts:   Let us not forget that Lutherans occupy "Liturgical Spaces" as well. I dare say that for a large amount of Lutheran church music (excepting of course those churches with a very broad repertoire that includes much Anglican stuff too) a 4 manual Skinner would not just be underused but largely inappropriate. I could be wrong, but I don't know too many Skinners in Lutheran Churches.   As far as running people down goes, I think it should be obvious why there aren't enough young organists when ones such as Desiree get run down by other older (not by too much) organists in public forums such as this. If it weren't for the nuggets of good informaiton that I manage to glean from this list, I wouldn't be one it because I get enough of people running other people down in the church.     On the bright side, I just enjoyed a glorious concert of music on the new Fisk at St. Chrysostom's Episcopal Church in Chicago. It is opus 123 and is 34 ranks. You can check it out at www.cbfisk.com. The program was played by Daniel Roth of St. Sulpice in Paris. I can post the program tomorrow if anyone is interested.     Blessings, Beau

(back) Subject: "Liturgical" "Trackers" From: <TubaMagna@aol.com> Date: Sun, 27 Feb 2005 21:19:23 EST   As a subset of mechanical action organs as a whole, I do not = understand the objection to tracker instruments, per se, vs. other types of = mechanical actions in general, or electropneumatic actions.

(back) Subject: My recital from hell From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@direcway.com> Date: Sun, 27 Feb 2005 20:17:10 -0600   Well, where to start? So much has happened. Why did I agree to attempt another recital? God only knows.   My employment situation had become more and more untenable. I was called down by my boss for not being a team player, but to this day have no idea what I did to deserve that. Meanwhile, the rest of the 'team' was never at work, and I was damned if I did their jobs and mine too, and damned if I didn't. It was a miserable situation.   I had several job interviews in Tallahassee, and knew something was wrong with me. No one is supposed to enjoy a job interview - it is a necessary evil, like a root canal. But the job interviews were more pleasurable than being at work. I turned down one job because it resembled my present job circumstances too closely, and I wasn't politically correct enough for the senators to hire me - not 'good', 'old' or 'boy'.   Meanwhile, I was summoned to a meeting with some state official from our Program, who said there were 'noises' and my name came up. Still I was given no clue what the nature or the sources of the 'noises' were. But by this time I was tired of the lack of due process - after repeated polite requests as to what I was doing wrong without a responsive answer, I assured him that I would not be a thorn in the Program's side for much longer. I still have not been told what allegations were made, and my boss has not spoken to me in a month.   For years my high school friend had been offering me a place in his firm, and I had demurred. Well, he made me a partnership offer that was extremely generous, and I thought, What am I afraid of? I've been in private practice before. The state benefits and retirement aren't that great, and getting less so with each passing year. Isn't it time I decided what I wanted to be when I grew up and settled down? Didn't I want to be a 'real' attorney again? The more I prayed and thought about it, the more convinced I was that all roads seemed to be leading to this decision.   We hammered out an agreement, and I gave notice this week. What a wonderful feeling of euphoria came over me! I couldn't sleep for mentally decorating my new office. In the succeeding days my mind started working like it used to, the synapses firing with quick precision. It was as though I had awakened from a coma. And my playing measurably improved. I knew instinctively that at this spot I was speeding up when I shouldn't, that this progression was sloppy, that I needed to be 'on spot' at this point and watch my fingering there. And I was living and playing in the moment - focused, in control, exactly where I wanted to be. I was even turning my own pages and hitting all my own registrations.   So I was reading title standards and family law and civil procedure rules like mad, trying to reorient myself to the parts of the law I have ignored the past couple of years, and practicing the organ every night. I knew the music, and knew that I was my own worst enemy. Or so I thought. So I ate lots of bananas, did lots of deep breathing, drank orange juice, and kept my mind free of anxiety regarding the recital. I was ready, I was pumped.   The program:   A Trumpet Minuet - Alfred Hollins (1865 - 1942) Sonata III in A, op. 65, no. 3 - Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy (1809 - 1847) Trio Sonata III in D-minor, BWV 527: I. Andante - Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) Voluntary on 'Love unknown' - Robert Lind (b. 1940) 'Pisgah' - Dale Wood (1934 - 2004) Prelude on 'Londonderry Air' - C. Noel Rawsthorne (b. 1929) Prelude and Fugue in E-flat major ("St. Anne"), BWV 552 - J. S. Bach Serenade for Organ, op. 22 - Derek Bourgeois (b. 1941)   I woke up to rain this morning and thought, oh well, no big crowd to play for. Wrong - the place was packed. I was warmly welcomed - my own family came to hear me play. The church was full of familiar and friendly faces - I was home.   Then just as I started to play, a guy with a video camera came out of nowhere and up in my face. I tried to be polite - get your photo and out of my way, I thought. But he didn't leave - he was at my elbow during the entire first piece. By the end he had escaped to the altar area, and I good-naturedly informed him in front of the crowd that I was an attorney, and he was lucky I didn't wrestle him to the ground. I even asked that he stay out of my space for the rest of the recital. But then he was right back during the Mendelssohn. I whispered for him to get away, but he persisted. I began shaking uncontrollably - don't know how I got through the piece. I can't remember the pedal portion of the Mendelssohn near the end.   When I stood up to take a bow, he was still standing next to me. I turned to him and told him in a low voice but no uncertain terms to remove himself from the recital - that I was not good enough to withstand his being in my face. He finally left, but I was visibly shaking for the rest of the recital - my page-turner even noticed it. I haven't been that angry in a very long time. I think I might have spent the night in jail for aggravated battery had he not left. I cannot even remember much of the recital, except the several episodes when I had to will my left fingers to move. I know it was only by the grace of God that I made it through. Thank God the St. Anne fugue went swimmingly - I barely noticed the screaming child.   Afterward everyone was effusive with praise, most of them extremely happy that I chased the photographer away, because he stood between the audience and me the entire time he was there. No one knew where he came from. But once I made it through the reception and arrived back home, I was still angry. All that time and effort to do my very best for what was probably my last recital, all the trouble I took to avoid extreme anxiety, to prepare for all contingencies, and all jinxed by an obnoxious photographer. Even after dinner with Chinese food and a fortune cookie with "be prepared for a sudden, needed, and happy change in plans" and a new Chinese word - 'lu shi' - "lawyer", I was still shaking inside. If I see him again . . . .   So much for going out with a bang. Just think of the headlines: "Organist arrested for murder on cameraman - 100 eye-witnesses." I would move for a change of venue to Texas, where it is rumored that it is an absolute defense to kill someone who sorely needs it.   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com

And on your recital. A terrific program. The Bourgeois Serenade is a perfect light-hearted ending to a the festivities, that began just as happily with the Hollins.

Admission is free, but a =   free will offering is being received.   The 35-minute program will include: Buxtehude's Praeludium in D (sorry I forget the #); Piet Rippen's "Partita on a Passion Chorale"; and = Mendelssohn's Sonata VI. The music seems to suit the Hradetsky tracker.   If you would like directions to the Church, feel free to e-mail me = privately.   All of this is weather-permitting.   Cheers, Neil
