On Boys' Camp in the Catskills
Did I ever tell you that I was music director for 50 years at a boys' camp in the Catskills, with an organ that was pumped by the boys? It was a large pipe organ, not just a little harmonium. The camp was a very odd combination of high-church Episcopalianism and the military, with drills and all that sort of thing. The children actually got very good training that way. I had been music director of that camp before the way, and as soon as I was released from service, I went back for the two summer months of 1946, and then I checked in at Harvard and I got my degree in May 1947 -- a master's degree in music. The same month I also successfully passed the [American Guild of Organists] examination to become [a Fellow of the American Guild of Organists].

Walker as dedicatee: Langlais's "Postlude III" from his Four Postludes is dedicated to Charles Dodsley Walker. I'm sure he had other pieces dedicated to him as well.
Sinden.org is proud to bring the second installment of our multi-part series of Episcopal Cathedrals and their distance from Starbucks stores. Using field agents and survey crews we have worked tirelessly to bring you this valuable resource.
We continue now in Province II (New York and New Jersey). Province II includes ten diocese, including two that are in neither New York nor New Jersey, and one "convocation".
The winner in this province is (surprise!) New York.
I am happy to be corrected on any of these stats.
|Diocese||Cathedral||Dist to SBUX|
|Albany||All Saints, Albany1||0.6 mi (10 N Pearl St)|
|Central New York||St Paul's, Syracuse||0.4 mi (290 W Jefferson St)|
|Convocation of American Churches in Europe||American, Paris||0.3 mi2 (76 Avenue des Champs Elysees)|
|Haiti||Holy Trinity, Port au Prince||400 mi (Florida)|
|Long Island||of the Incarnation||0.5 mi (184 7th St)|
|New Jersey||Trinity, Trenton||5.6 mi (1 N Main St, Yardley, PA)|
|New York||St John the Divine||0.2 mi[from the front steps] (2853 Broadway)|
|Newark||Trinity & St Philip's||0.3 mi (744 Broad St)|
|Virgin Islands||Church of All Saints, Charlotte Amalie||1000 miles (Florida)|
|Western New York||St. Paul's, Buffalo||0.7 mi (235 Delaware Ave)|
1. All Saints claims to be home to the longest running Men and Boys' Choir in the country.
2. Actually this distance is 0.5km since miles don't work in France.
3. Rochester is one of nineteen domestic dioceses that has no cathedral (the others being Alaska,
Central Gulf Coast, East Carolina, Eastern Michigan, Eastern Oregon, Fort Worth, Georgia, Navajoland, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Northern Michigan, Northwest Texas, Southern Virginia, Southwestern Virginia, Tennessee, West Virginia, Western Michigan).
It's always fun to describe for people the two Starbucks locations across the street from each other in the River Oaks area of Houston.
Now, the city has added to that total.
In his anthem "I was glad" how about that subito piano on the "-ru" of "O pray for the peace of Jerusalem"?
The effect is huge! And it's clearly there in the score for everyone to see (and hear).
What's it all about?
Has anyone recorded it that way?
Just listened to John Scott's recording with St. Paul's, London. He chickens out. Or the choir does.
This week's program of Pipedreams points us to a Fugue written by a 26-year-old student at the Paris Conservatoire, Maurice Duruflé.
Like the other students competing, Duruflé was locked in a room from 6 am until 11:30 pm, provided with only pencil and music paper. No piano, no reference books. Under such circumstances, a real piece of music is about the last thing one would expect as a result. And yet, that is what Duruflé created, and it compels our attention.
Duruflé left us with 14 or so official opus numbers, so really anything else that we have of his compels our attention.
A score and mp3 recording are available here.
