    Hi Contratrombone64,

    Parishes who have a board of trustees worth their salt would specify that any renovations to the physical building and plant of the Church shall include the organ. Churches have a much easier time getting a line of credit than a private person. So there is really no excuse in letting the organ collapse. I speak from experience as a Council President and also as a Treasurer. What Church boards and congregation members usually suffer from is ignorance. Fund drives, bequests, stewardship drives, and other forms of fund collection must be coupled with long-range planning.

    Humbly,

    Corno Dolce

    Hi NEB,

    Lack of vision in accord with what the original principles that the congregation was founded on - systemic failure never rectified by board of trustees. It is so sad but quite often commonplace.

    Hey ladies and gents, hows about getting back on topic, ok?

    Great Wedding March in E flat - Who amongst the organists on this forum might use it at the next wedding they play for?

    Cheers,

    Hi NEB,

    Thats way cool. It will be a great exposure for our forum friend and colleague's musical composition. Better than what a music publishing house can muster.

    Cheers,

    Since the median age at the church where I'm organist is 68, we don't have weddings anymore ... so I'm going to earmark this wonderful piece for a Prelude or Offertoire in a festival service next year.

    Hello KH,

    Hey, thats great! Maybe the music will assuage the ravaged and savaged souls of the Church where you practise the art of musicianship.

    Respectfully,

    Corno Dolce

    Very interesting what you said. I am really happy to learn that some of you will play my music. I have never heard it on a real organ, because I started composing many years after I have been an organist.
    To thank one of you that will play and send me a record I could write an original music for his particular or private event. Just ask me.

    Hey Corno Dolce,

    I could play "Yankee Doodle Dandee" and they would love it ... in fact, I have done just that once - on a bet with another organist - I did it very slow and reverently towards the end of Communion ... nobody caught it except my choir director and the other organist.

    Yeah - over the years I've played all sorts and just wrapped them up so only those paying real attention get the joke!

    Ok Back to the wedding march.

    Just given it another once over. It's very very orchestral isn't it... Very clear where the string section is sweeping through long phrases (e.g. taking over the melody line on the lead into bar 6 - perhaps upper strings and cellos in unison, support by woodwind chords, with the Brass section (and percussion - orchestral of course...) coming in for the big moments. I also think it sounds better at a more 'Regal' tempo than the one used in the recording above.

    Can't help wondering what it would sound like on the Wanamaker - moving between the different sections of the orchestra and into big tutti's and so forth. And of course the hige Climax at the end!!!!!!!!!!!!
