I have the Kalmus four-volume edition of Pachelbel, so there are a fair number of his chorale-preludes with sixteenth notes I can try out the harp on. Now that I think on it, I have some old Italian stuff somewhere; have to track it down.   Randy Runyon     On Jun 25, 2005, at 4:52 PM, <hydrant@baskerbeagles.com> <hydrant@baskerbeagles.com> wrote:   > > Hi Randy.... > > I just listened to your lovery Air for Trumpet played by > Jonathan Orwig.

Thank = you for sharing it. In the discourse, you mentioned that you interviewed them back - politely. =   Often, I think that this is one of the most critical facets of an = interview that most of us leave out. We must somehow think that we are going to be = a welcomed addition to any staff and or church, or possibly, we can handle most any situation that we encounter. Or, maybe we feel we are in such a desperate need for a job, we will accept any position that is offered us. = I think it is important for us to begin understanding that whether or not we secure a certain position, it is more important for us to understand that most of our creativity, interpretative skills, musical selection, etc., is directly correlated to our mental and emotional state. Serving in a difficult situation has negative effects on us as organist. I think we need to begin to learn from each other what things we should being looking for during an interview, and more importantly, what we = should be looking out for. Questions like who was your last organist, why did = they leave the position, where are they now, are not out of line to be asked. Asking about Ministry focus and philosophy with questions like, If you had to choose 3 ministry forms for this church and do away with all the rest, which three would you choose to keep. Asking the senior minister or = pastor about his beliefs regarding the purpose of the church is not out of line. Even asking Theological questions regarding his beliefs in the areas of Christology, Bibliology or Anthropology are not out of line. The key word here is POLITELY. However, the answers can tell you quite quickly if you and the present leadership are "playing from the same page." If not, it = is better to be unemployed or only serving as an interim, rather than be miserable. Why not share some of the questions that you like answers to before you = are willing to accept an offered position. Regards, Mark Gilbert, Organist Citadel Square Baptist Church Charleston, SC

I'm going to be soooooooooooooo embarrassed if this piece is not in f-minor!!! It has been published and I'm playing from a very olde copy that is all brown with age. However, being the honest (and brave) person that I am, I will check next time I go to practice and report back.   I think I have some other pieces of his, but this one is my favorite.
