It = needed some really competent work done on it when I was there. It has = consequently received some TLC, has a few more stops, and has been moved to a better = spot within the "worship area," I'm told. I hope to get back out there someday.   Surely I, too, would have gladly replaced a Kilgen with something more "up-to-date" thirty or so years ago.

The fine is scheduled to = increase when the new edition, soon to arrive, appears, it being a great deal = larger than the present book. So you cannot check on either guy while you listen and drive.   John Henderson's indispensable work has a listing for Joseph Franck with a =   quite extensive works list. He mentions also that young Franck was, for a time, choirmaster and presumably choir Organist at St. Sulpice. Nick, you say: "Joseph is listed in no major composers encyclopedia," but you have missed "The Directory of Composers for Organ," which is the Organist's quintessential book. You may have to wait to buy one, unless you have a = book or music seller with some old stock around. At OHS in Buffalo last summer, = I wanted to buy a copy for a young student, and I did that, but was warned there that OHS had attempted to buy some more copies, and learned that in the UK, whence the book cometh, there were only eight copies left. Now, if =   you will go to the website for the Directory (below), you will find that = the 2000 edition is completely sold out, and that there are unavoidable delays =   in the appearance of the new edition. If you want to know what I really think, knowing lexicographers in general, and John in particular, my suspicion is that he is waiting for a very old composer of Organ music somewhere to finally take up a post directing the heavenly choir, so his correct dates can be included in the new edition! Now that, Malcolm, is truly macabre!   Do go to the website, where you will find an enormous lot of new = information uncovered since the publication of the 2000 edition. This is a great resource, and one wonders if there are many other authors/compilers who provide this invaluable service via the Internet. Here's the URL:   http://www.rscm.u-net.com/   One more thing provided by the author, an indication in code after each = work listed, indicating who the publisher is/was. The code is revealed at the = end of the book.   Cheers of a Sunday night,   Malcolm Wechsler www.mander-organs.com   ----- Original Message ----- From: "N.

What next, NASA will find out that the moon is, in fact, made of cheese? But in all seriousness, I had heard these works dismissed as "crap. complete and total crap" by one of the more distinguished organists in my area. Evidently, Joseph, was tired of living in his brother's shadow, and decided to compose some works of his own, going on what my friend had told me. . . Joseph is listed in no major composers encyclopedia, and could find little mention of him at all on Google.

She maintained a deep piety and strong commitment to mission= , and wrote more than 650 hymns and poems."   I wonder what Carolina V. Sandell Berg would think of her "familiar" name a= nd the translation? -- is it more or less in keeping with the original than= the Ernst W. Olson trainslation?   You can find a list of the culprits who translated the hymns to "provide ri= ch, varied metaphors for singing about God, and language to sing about peop= le that excludes no one -- words that all people can sing" on page xi of th= e NCH. Not sayin' the NCH isn't without it's good points ... I yanked "Jeru= salem, My Happy Home" (LAND OF REST) for this morning's prelude.
