    Mess-up

    I heard somewhere that there was an MP3 on the net of a Choir singing with a pipe organ and the organist accidently hit the transposer and threw the song all out of whack. Does anyone have this, or even know what I'm talking about?

        I know. Great way to end the Hallelujah Chorus.......HalleluYUCK! Actually, something almost like this happened to me awhile back with the Allen Renaissance in my church. I had raised the key of an anthem the choir was doing with the autotransposer (because alas, I am not one of those organists who can transpose at sight) and forgot to lower it for the next communion solo which was for one of the sopranos in the choir that I am not particularly fond of. Once I realized what had happened it was too late to stop as she had already started to sing. It got pretty ugly. I really felt bad and could not stop apologizing but I seriously doubt that anyone believed it was an accident. Oh well.............

          I'm not sure of a pipe organ with a transpose....is there one?? I've seen a portable harmonium with one..It must be a digital organ... also simple hymns must be practised in all 12 keys and by 'ear' without music....if you analyse most of them you will find they have a handful of chords unlike the charismatic modern songs.Thats what I do here in Mumbai India.

            This sounds fun, though I too do really feel for the poor organist. Closest I got to this was a UK Lowrey promotional concert. I'd hooked up two MX2 organs for my finale - Elgar's Pomp and Circumstance No.1 (Land of hope and Glory) - and for the big, closing section I hit the button that linked both organs. Some kind soul had been playing around with the transpose controls of the second organ and it came in a 4th higher. OUCH! Andy G
            It's not what you play. It's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.

                Oh really???? Hahaha. Like we here in the US have time for that. It would be great to do, of course, but I have better things to do with my time.

                Worst snafus I've made:

                1) Extra verse. Who hasn't made this mistake?
                2) Not enough verses. " "?
                3) Hit a manual piston while stretching for a chord. This can get nasty. Either it's a communion hymn and you hit a tutti piston or its a big recessional and you hit a 8' string piston. Yikes,

                I have ALMOST forgotten to change a transposer. Thank god I realized.

                  Oh man, I just listened to it. That's pretty funny. I don't think it's canned. That chord after the caesura is hilarious. I just can't imagine what the choir was thinking let alone the people who clapped at the end.

                    How about making a really nice modulation and then returning to the original key! It took me a long time to live that one down!!!! dec
