Peter Clark Posted October 8, 2007 Share Posted October 8, 2007 This post is offered as a public service to the organ playing community. I should have mentionbed this earlier - but yesterday I played the organ for a wedding and the bride had already had the order of service printed before talking to me about the music. Fortunately they were bog-standard hymns, happy-clappy for the most part but playable on the organ. Wagner in, some screechy soprano singing Masagni on the way out. As I said, the music was un this case familiar, but it need not have been that way. Is this a new trend? Has anybody else had fait accomplee service sheets given to them? Shoiuld I have said something? (I didn't partly because I know the bride's father and her sister, and we belong to the same sports and social club where we have the odd pint together.) It says clearly in the leaflet we give out at the beginning of marriage preparation that no music must be chosen until the organist has been consulted. Be warned, folks. Next time it could be you.
