Give the Braves this much: They have a creative organist. When Howard comes to the plate, the organist sometimes plays the theme from The Office, the Scranton-based NBC sitcom that has a character by the same name. For Raul Ibanez, he plays Werewolves of London because there's a point in the Warren Zevon song when the artist screams something that sounds like "Rauuuulll."

The comments suggest that the organist also takes request by Twitter.
This seems like not a bad idea . . .
There's renewed interest in Howard Hanson, James Jordan of the choir Gloria Dei Cantores says.
Is there, however, interest in this renewed interest in Hanson? (This video has been viewed 15 times at the time of this writing).
Having just stumbled across a copy of Hanson's Psalm 150, I'm experiencing a initial spate of interest in the composer's choral repertoire.
I'm sure I've got some of his orchestral music around here somewhere, but I don't have any choral music on disc. Hanson's Symphony No. 4 won the second Pulitzer Prize ever awarded for music in 1944.
Did you know the ending credits to the film Alien are accompanied by "Interlochen Theme" from Hanson's Symphony No. 2?
The latest CD from Gloriae Dei Cantores's, a 40-voice ensemble based in Orleans, Mass., includes Hanson's Cherubic Hymn.

On this date in 1938 (a Saturday), the organ in Norwich Cathedral caught fire whilst Heathcote Statham was playing it.
A Thursday five weeks hence will commemorate the Ascension of our resurrected Lord.
The following Howells anthem could be sung:
This anthem is No. 4 of Howells's "Four Anthems" in time of war, (why not tempore belli? Howells loved Italian) though he later stripped the war-time designation from the collection.
The best known of the set is "Like as the hart desireth the waterbrooks", and "O pray for the peace of Jerusalem" isn't too far behind.
This version of "Herbie's" beloved anthem is perfect for this glorious Easter Monday.
