If we're talking congregational singing, I would suggest "I want to walk as a child of the Light" (tune Houston), found in many hymnals nowadays. It would be non-age specific, and the message again seems to meld with the occasion. And it's not too high, not too low - Goldilocks would probably like it.     Glenda Sutton   gksjd85@direcway.com     -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org] On Behalf Of Alan Freed Sent: Friday, March 04, 2005 8:42 AM To: PipeChat Subject: Re: "Children's" Hymns - UCC     On 3/4/05 7:33 AM, "Glenda" <gksjd85@direcway.com> wrote:   > But, Alan, any 'children's hymn' has the possibility of being patronizing.

One of our tenors, about age 70, sings "This Little Light of Mine" as a solo once each summer, when the choir is on hiatus. THAT way, it's not at all patronizing, of course.   Thanks.   Alan

I lost my old war-horse Widor toccata (it actually fell of the organ bench and went down a crack into the land of unknown..........I can't retrieve it!) Perhaps the church ghost has heard it all that it can stand? Unfortunately I have a wedding next month that I need it for. Anyhow, I don't live near any music stores so I have to order music. I cannot remember the edition. What is the favorite of you folks?   > >

I'll never forget my first priest/boss telling me that when I mentioned wanting the organ = redone. I had it all planned out in my head. There was a 1946 Moller of 6 ranks in eastern Tennessee that was being replaced by a large 3 manual Allen, and I needed $1,000.00 to get it.   That afternoon I "mysteriously" received a check for the organ fund for $1,000.00. Of course, I know my rector was behind the whole thing, but = ever since then, I seem to have these daydreams and all of a sudden the thing lands in my lap.   Two years ago I wanted to do a little work on the organ at St. Peter's and ended up with about $35K to buy parts with.   I purchased a 1975 Cadillac about a year ago as a toy. It is a 4-door. I've often wished for a 2-door to go with it, and in the fall I found one and offered to trade some piano lessons for the car, and she is mine.   A few days ago I found out that a Rodgers 810 was available due to a = church merger. I thought the organ might have some good audio equipment for my church. Turns out the speakers are all toasted, but the organ itself is fine. I now have a perfectly good (and free) practice organ, thanks to a little thing called a *headphone jack* I am already thinking of a way to run that audio to a set of computer speakers so I won't ruin my hearing practicing with phones on all the time. The organ is analog, which means = I can figure out how to adjust the sounds to my tastes.   Now I need the $300 to pay the piano movers to move it! Can I say = "Mommy?"
