(back) Subject: Re: And now for something completely different... From: <DERREINETOR@aol.com> Date: Wed, 30 Mar 2005 10:35:39 EST     "Le Jardin Suspendu" by Jehan Alain, another "garden related" composition = to add to the amusing list begun by Colin. I suppose you could also improvise = on "I beg your pardon, I never promised you a rose garden". Sorry I can't = help with the serious quest for an organ piece on "In the Garden".   Regarding "In the Garden" and other related "Gospel" hymns, Virgil Thomson =   had the following to say:   (From Anthony Tommasini's "Virgil Thomson:Composer on the Aisle")   H.L. Mencken, delighted with Thomson's explications of jazz for the = "American Mercury", invited him to submit anything he wanted on any subject. This open-ended invitation resulted in Thomson's one early failure: a = straight-faced discussion of the erotic imagery in a standard 1917collection of Baptist = hymns. Thomson breaks down the 205 hymns into 10 groups: 36 of these hymns are evangelical exhortations, 28 explain the benefits of conversion, 25 anticipate or describe Heaven, 13 are for children, 6 are prayerful, 4 are military, 3 predict the Judgment Day, 1 is about Mother, 1 recalls with pleasure a little brown church in the wildwood, 91 confess erotic feelings for the person of Jesus.   The article was rejected.   After reading that, I guarantee you will never be able to view these hymns = in the same way again. But I DO find it helps to amuse me when I am called = upon to play them.;)   Ducking for Cover, and apologizing in advance (remember, it's Thomson, not = me who said it), Bill H. Boston   PS: For another amusing hymn with potential erotic (indeed, potentially kinky) imagery, seek out James G. Small's "I've Found a Friend, O Such a = Friend". Both the hymn and the tune often associated with it, Sir Arthur Sullivan's =   CONSTANCE, is highly entertaining. It is #220 in the old Presbyterian = "Hymbook" (1955), the only place I've ever seen it. Email me privately if you would = like the text. BH

Stebbins' tune FRIEND, = which in its cadences bears striking harmonic and motivic resemblance to CONSTANCE and = is even more amusing than Sir Arthur's setting, which is pretty amusing to = begin with and begs a "tag" a la "Pirates of Penzance".   Just to clarify; my apologies to George C. Stebbins for slighting him in = my last post. May he rest bound in those cords of love. ;) Pax, Bill H. Boston
