Church politics, working with seperate music directors > (unless its a primary OrgChM) can be cumbersome.   I'm very much moving in that direction, primarily to clergy/politics issues, and I'm at peace with it on the whole. The day job is a surprising choice for most - a cable guy, err, "broadband technician." (Remember, your cable company is becoming a phone, internet, and HDTV program provider, so it's much more than the old stereotype!) Tired stereotypes aside, it is really refreshing - technical, mental, physical, practical, and dealing with people and their perceptions (except you're out the door after a nasty customer - a call to your sup about your side of the situation and it's done and taken care of). The challenge is finding the right kind of church job - you bring lots of experience and vision after years of putting up with the downside and achieving great things despite them, yet you have to focus on doing one or a few things well in a part-time situation. This is still evolving for me. I now have a nice interim organist job in a big Lutheran church that is now a ghost of its former self - a big Casavant played by the big names in concert in the 60's, but the parish is struggling for vision (and money), so where that goes will be interesting, in addition to the usual politics of "who plans the music," "why is the choir director conducting the choir on all the liturgy responses," etc., etc.   Still, I'm hoping my general passion for the organ, worship, and service playing will win out and win people over.

Each time I play it I find something new in the music. E. Power Biggs takes it at quite a lick - it works.   I find the B minor Bch pre & fug a powerfully profound piece, for which a rapid or =B3happy=B2 tempo and interpretation miss its greatest spirituality. No, not slow and dull! But I think Biggs=B9 recording missed the boat on thi= s one.   Cordially,   Karl E. Moyer Lancaster PA

Knox KY in the spring and summer of 1962. I had access to a piano in the chaplain=B9s office and learned the Dupr=E9 pre & fue in g, Op. 7, and the Mendelssohn Sonata 3 there at the pian= o to the point of memory before every getting it to an organ that Fall. Fre= e time that summer was divided between Bach and Dupr=E9 and working on my jack-knife and my forward 1 1/2 at the base pool. The results of the latter hurt more than of the former. I tell you, the water can HURT when you enter the wrong way. Wrong fugal entries don=B9t hurt that much. :-)   Karl E. Moyer Lancaster PA

(back) Subject: This week's mp3(s) Music of Joseph Boulnois From: "Jonathan Orwig" <giwro@adelphia.net> Date: Mon, 30 May 2005 23:06:16 -0700   Hello, Friends,   This week we start with the Quatre Pi=E8ces Br=E8ves of Joseph Boulnois. Boulnois was a student of Vierne, and wrote quite a bit of music, most of which was unpublished, as he died in World War 1 at the tender age of 34. Hearing these little minatures (and also one of his larger works) makes me wish he had lived longer... the music is so beautiful!   1 - dans l'esprit d'une sarabande http://evensongmusic.net/audio/BoulnoisQ1.mp3 2 - La nuit dans une Cath=E9drale http://evensongmusic.net/audio/BoulnoisQ2.mp3 3 - `a matines http://evensongmusic.net/audio/BoulnoisQ3.mp3 4 - Grand Choeur http://evensongmusic.net/audio/BoulnoisQ4.mp3   Enjoy!   -- Jonathan Orwig Evensong Music, Media and Graphics New Organ and Choral Music http://www.evensongmusic.net
