This is where the "Pedal to Great" coupler is most useful -- = where the organist/choirmaster wants to conduct and the choir member he = gets to accompany is a pianist who can't play the pedals. Actually, = where you have a three manual organ, having a "Pedal to Choir" coupler = is probably better than a "Pedal to Great" for doing for this.   John Speller ----- Original Message -----=20 From: RMaryman@aol.com=20 To: pipechat@pipechat.org=20 Sent: Saturday, March 12, 2005 5:19 PM Subject: Re: Pedal to Great?     In a message dated 3/12/2005 11:55:06 AM Eastern Standard Time, = pnst.shirley@verizon.net writes: Ok, all you learned folks.   Of what use would a Pedal-to-Great coupler serve?

Can any of you tell me what the last Sunday in May equates to in the RC lectionary this year? By that time have they started the long hot summer in ordinary time, or is there something like a Trinity Sunday or the like?   Thanks - I got a gig!   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com
