(back) Subject: Death of Jack H. Ossewaarde From: <OrganNYC@aol.com> Date: Sun, 9 Jan 2005 06:18:34 EST   I am very sad to report the death of Jack Ossewaarde, who was Organist/Choirmaster at St. Bartholomew's Church in New York City for 25 = years (1958-1983). The following obituary is from the Kalamazoo, MI Gazette. http://www.mlive.com/news/kzgazette/index.ssf?/base/news-12/110503022818064= 0.xml Steve Lawson - NYC # # # Jack Ossewaarde Jack H. Ossewaarde, who was director of music at two Kalamazoo churches as = a teenager and eventually became organist and choirmaster at St. = Bartholomew's, a well-known Episcopal church in New York City, died Dec. 30 at his home = in Stamford, Conn. He was 86. Born Nov. 15, 1918, in Kalamazoo, Ossewaarde started his musical training = at the age of 7 and became organist and director of music at North Park = Reformed Church when he was 14. He served in that capacity and in a similar = position at Bethany Reformed Church for the next six years. He also was a member of the St. Luke's Episcopal Church Boys' Choir here. =   "He was a wonderful, wonderful musician," said Ruth Ossewaarde of Portage, = reflecting the pride she and her husband, Edward, had in her husband's = older brother. Already an accomplished musician by the time he graduated from Kalamazoo Central High School in 1936, Jack Ossewaarde earned bachelor's and = master's degrees in music from the University of Michigan. He then spent a year as organist and music director at First Baptist = Church of Ann Arbor and as an instructor at U-M before being inducted into the military shortly before the United States entered World War II. After serving in the Army for four years, Ossewaarde studied at Union Theological Seminary in New York City and was trained in organ and choral = technique by the then organist and choirmaster at St. Bartholomew's. In 1946, Ossewaarde was named organist and choirmaster of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. The following year, he was appointed = to identical positions at Calvary Episcopal Church in New York City. While Ossewaarde was at Calvary, the dean of the American Guild of = Organists proclaimed, "Jack Ossewaarde is already so outstanding a musician, his = youth considered, that he will undoubtedly become one of New York's greatest ministers of music." Ossewaarde was at Calvary for six years then became choir director and organist at Christ Church Cathedral in Houston, serving there for five = years before receiving his appointment in 1958 to St. Bartholomew's, where he = spent 25 years before retiring. Ossewaarde returned to Kalamazoo on occasion to give organ recitals. One = was in 1978, when he performed at the dedication of First Reformed Church's rebuilt organ. In retirement, Ossewaarde volunteered with the FISH service organization = and the AARP tax-preparation service in Stamford. He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Donna; a daughter, Ann Ritterbush = of Ringgold, Ga.; a son, Jon, of Holland; four grandchildren; one great-grandchild; a brother and sister-in-law, Edward and Ruth Ossewaarde = of Portage; and a sister and brother-in-law, Betty and Dean Freund of Hendersonville, N.C. =   Arrangements were handled by the Bouton and Reynolds Funeral Home of Stamford.

(back) Subject: Orders of Service From: "Dominic Scullion" <dominicscullion@email.com> Date: Sun, 9 Jan 2005 16:46:52 -0000   Dear all,     The Priest in my church now wants various masses to have Orders of Service printed for them.     He wants the format to be as follows:     All words to hymns included and the words to the responses to be included. He wants the scriptural reference on it and he wants the credo, pater = noster etc. as well.     If anyone has any Orders of Service saved on their computer which they = could send to me in a Microsoft Windows Word Document then I may be able to use that as a template. Don't worry if in the template you have no credo or whatever, I can add that, but a general template would be greatly appreciated.     Regards,     Dom Scullion   Scotland        
(back) Subject: Re: Orders of Service From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Sun, 9 Jan 2005 12:08:30 EST   Dear Dom:   Sounds like a lot of extra work. Is the priest going to pay you for full time employment? He must have seen that done at another church in the Diocese and thought, ay that's great. One problem, They are only good for one occasion. Copyrights have to be covered by a license. You can't legally use them again. Scotland being part of the UK, copyright laws are for longer periods than the US. Contemporary Music may need to be licensed separately. It can become a real nightmare. Does he realize that the copyright police fine people and churches for non compliance.   Do you have available to you missalettes by liturgical season? Readings, hymns and Mass parts all in one place? They are paperback and economical.   Ron Severin

(back) Subject: Hymn introductions From: "Charles Peery" <cepeery@earthlink.net> Date: Sun, 9 Jan 2005 18:51:17 -0500   Hi, listers,   I just came from a lovely Epiphany Evensong service, and it got me to thinking. There were four or five hymns in this service. (It was more a lessons and carols service than the usual Evensong liturgy, and there were four choir anthems as well!) The organist simply played the first four measures of the hymn we were about to sing. Sometimes this left you hanging on a dominant (or worse) before you had to find the first note and begin. On the other hand, with the intro being only four measures, it wasn't a problem to simply REMEMBER back to the first note. At first I was rattled a bit because it felt unmusical, but then I concluded it was utilitarian but predictable, and who said the introduction to a congregational hymn has to SAY something musically? It certainly did the trick and the congregation had no trouble with it. But then again, the choir was professional, the congregation sophisticated (they sat with rapt attention to "Dieu Parmi Nous" at the close of the service.)   So, how do you introduce hymns? Do you try to inspire? to set mood? or simply say "Here's the key we're in, now go, people". I guess I don't have a philosophy in place on this, which is why I'm asking. I tend to mix it up depending the day, on how inspiring I find the hymn, whether it's unfamiliar and needs a complete play-through, do I have a choir to lead? have I done too much today already?... that sort of thing.   Chuck Peery St. Louis

Half the speed, half the range (one octave instead of two; two instead= of four)   b. If you simply cannot do the run(s) as written, see if a gliss (fingern= ail or thumbnail) can/will work.

Either = accompanied with organ or unaccompanied is fine, no real preference as of now.   Last year we used a setting which is featured in the Oxford collection = "Ash Wednesday to Easter for Choirs" by John Sanders.

I would consider that arrangement rather difficult, so something more simplistic might be nice.   On another note, especially to those serving in Roman Catholic and = Anglican Parishes, what sorts of things do your choirs sing on Good Friday? As it = is specified that we have a truncated Communion service with veneration of = the cross, and that organ play only an accompanimental role under the voices = where necessary, unaccompanied pieces seem to work best and are the most = appropriate.   Thanks in advance, I look forward to your responses and suggestions.   -Scott   Scott F.
