Guest Roffensis Posted June 18, 2005 Share Posted June 18, 2005 I recently had cause to play a funeral at the above church for one Miss Tettinna Schlop, of german descent, who was a regular worshipper and did the flowers on a saturday after the news on TV. I was most dismayed to be confronted by an original 1844 Willis of 20 speaking stops, including 13 reeds, such is its marvelollous versatility. I say dismayed because apparently the choir of 20 boys and 8 men has been sacked, as Ms. Schlop left a dowry to the church stipulating that sacred dance should be the prime worship method rather usung the fine pipe organ, with the choir. I was asked to play one hymn (draw me close to the fountain) and a single voluntary at exit (Henry Widors Priere a notre dame) but otherwise I had to suffer this woman jigging about to Abba on the central space. Apparetnlyt the new vicar, Rev. Cumbersome, has decided that the church must move into the 21st century, and as well as the abovementioned carrying ons, wants to instigate sung sermons. I just wondered if anyone has had a similar experience? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
