TODAY I CHOOSE TO SUCCEED!


I am here because of prior choices I have made.
My thoughts control my actions.
My actions determine my destiny.
My destiny is controlled by my choices.

Today I choose to...

Live my life with honor, courage and commitment,
• Follow the rules and do my best in all my endeavors,
• Perform like a mature and professional military person,
• Be honest with myself and not make excuses for my actions
• Admit when I’m wrong and be held accountable
• Maintain a positive attitude.

I am who I am and where I am because of my choices. Today I choose to succeed!

Prayer: Dear God, I pray that you will be a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. Help me always to choose the path which honors You, my family and my country. Amen.

. . . Hello Kathy, the grapes are leafing out all over. I potted up 7 cuttings today, hopefully to replace some of the vines that the drought decimated.

How many of you know that Franz Schubert wrote a setting of Psalm 92 in Hebrew? Show of hands. None? That’s not surprising. This score didn’t show up until recently, and there is a fascinating story about how a Catholic boy wrote a Hebrew setting for a temple service.

The Hapsburgs finally let the Jewish community in Vienna open a new synagogue in 1827. Although Reform Judaism is a largely American phenomenon, the roots of it date back to the Enlightenment. The rabbi for the new temple in Vienna was Robert Mannheimer, an avatar of the reform movement. He chose as his cantor a conservative, Solomon Sulzer.

In those days, there were parties in Vienna known as Schubertiades, where Franz would show off his latest songs and piano pieces. During the interludes, Schubert would improvise various German dances at the piano while everyone else danced, and he would later write these down for possible publication. At one gathering, Sulzer chatted with Schubert during a break in the proceedings, and Schubert handed him the hand-written sheet music for “The Wanderer”. Sulzer sight-read and sang it without difficulty. Schubert corrected some of his phrasing while making notes on the original score, and Sulzer sang it again, this time perfectly.

This is what Sulzer sang. At 2:00, we hear the theme Schubert used for his famous Wanderer Fantasie for piano.

Schubert: “The Wanderer”

Sulzer then hired Schubert to write an a capella Hebrew setting of Psalm 92 for the first service in the new temple. For the next three weeks, Sulzer put Schubert through a crash course in Hebrew. Poetry in Hebrew has neither rhyme nor meter, but is prose with a poetic feel. Then there is the matter of emphasis and accent. It took a bit of coaching, but Schubert rose to the challenge.

This particular video has organ accompaniment, which should have been left out.

Schubert: Psalm 92 (in Hebrew)

Sharing Space

March 25, 2012

The number of people who run a business out of their homes is in the millions. But some have found that working alone can be a little too lonely. To give these lonely ones a community, “co-working” spaces have been designed. Large facilities are rented out where people working by themselves can share space with others. They have their own work area but can exchange ideas with fellow independent workers. It’s for those who feel they can work better together than they do alone.

Sometimes Christians think they work better alone. But we are meant to work together with others in the church. Every Christian has been placed into “the body of Christ” (1 Cor. 12:27). And the Lord desires that we take part in fellowship with a local community of believers—using our spiritual gifts and working together in His service.

Yet for various reasons, some aren’t able to join in. Because of health issues, they may be shut in at home or may not know how to fit in at church. Yet they are a needed part of the body (vv.22-25). That’s when others can meet their need for togetherness. Let’s do our part so that others may feel they’re an integral part of the community of faith. We work better together than alone.

Thinking It Over
What can you do to help others feel a part of your church
community? Visit, pray with them, read Scripture together,
drop a note, or invite them to join you in serving others.
Fellowship builds us up and binds us together.

Read: 1 Corinthians 12:12-27

Those members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary. —1 Corinthians 12:22
Bible in a Year:
2 Samuel 9-12

Franz Schubert set Psalm 23 to music, and it has been a standard in the German sacred repertory for nearly two centuries. It never caught on outside of the German-speaking world because the words of Luther’s Bible don’t scan well in English.

Schubert set it for women’s chorus in the key of A-flat Major. He writes the piano accompaniment as though it were for a harp, and the women are intended to be angels.

The Mozart Requiem is one of the greatest artifacts of Western Civilization. He never finished the work, and students and researchers have come up with various performing editions in the centuries after its composition. You know from the opening bars that this is something special.

At 4:41 Mozart launches into the Kyrie, which he sets as a fugue. This is logical because of the repetitive nature of the Greek words. But this is Mozart wearing his Size 15 Triple-E boots, and no composer of requiems ever set the Kyrie as a fugue after this!

At the end, Mozart finishes it with a D chord with an open fifth (D-A-D). Normally this is used to indicate tonal ambiguity, because the F or F# in the middle determines whether you are in the major or minor mode. But that’s not why Mozart uses it. The open fifth configuration is here used to describe spaciousness. Usually it is spaciousness above, but – and I’ve never figured out how Mozart did this – here it describes the spaciousness below. For the length of that final chord and its decay in the space of the hall or church, Mozart gives us a look into the abyss. It’s absolutely hair-raising.

Mozart: Requiem, Introit and Kyrie

A very full day. Saturday is now an 8 hour day.
But at least I have Sundays off now.

Some of my students are just too young. People have some unrealistic expectations sometimes. (sigh) I am torn between telling the moms this unpleasant fact, or being quiet and being a VERY expensive babysitter. Eek!

May HASHEM cause the enemies who rise up against us to be struck down before them. May the Holy One, Blessed is He, preserve and rescue our fighting men from every trouble and distress and from every plague and illness, and may He send blessing and success in their every endeavor.

May He lead our enemies under their sway and may He grant them salvation and crown them with victory. And may there be fulfilled for them the verse: For it is Hashem, your G-d, Who goes with you to battle your enemies for you to save you.

PRAYERS GOING UP FOR OUR AMERICAN HEROES AND FOR OUR BELOVED NATION!







GEORGE WASHINGTON RECEIVES VISION OF AMERICA'S FUTURE FROM ANGELIC MESSENGER.

In the coldest and darkest days of the American Revolution, General George Washington raised his prayers for the survival of his beleaguered Army and of the new Nation. The Lord answered those prayers, upheld his Army through a punishing nadir to everlasting glory and bestowed His manifold benefits upon the new Nation.

In like manner, let our prayers now rise for our heroes in the American military who seek to secure the benefits of Freedom on behalf of a people hungry for them. Father, look on our prayers for them with favor, guide their steps in righteousness and keep them in the shelter of Your Healing Wings. Bless and uphold them in the performance of their Mission. Through Jesus Christ, Your Son, Amen.




SHADOWS AT ARLINGTON

Heavenly Father, Lord of the Nations, unto Your Divine Mercy we commend the souls of these who have fallen in the service of our Beloved Nation and in defense of the freedoms we hold dear. We pray that You gather them in Your loving embrace, that You cause Your countenance to shine upon them and that You vouchsafe their souls to dwell eternally in Your Divine Presence. Through Your Son, Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever, Amen.

As part of the Catholic Benediction service, the standard Latin hymn is a rather insipid version of ”Tantum ergo”, a poem by Thomas Aquinas. Schubert set it to music in the last months of his life for orchestra and chorus. It’s way better than what one hears in church these days.

At 1:41 there is a breathtaking key change, and the melisma at 2:01 breaks your heart.

Schubert: “Tantum Ergo”, D. 962

Actually, the pope is a gifted pianist, and his speciality is Mozart. He and his brother, Monsignor George Ratzinger, who is a choirmaster, play 4-handed duets when B-16 is on vacation. They were working on some Schubert 4-handed pieces the last time I heard.

Hector Berlioz wrote his requiem only ten years after Beethoven’s death, but he opened up entirely new fields of music. The Lacrimosa starts out in 9/8 and A minor. Usually, composers use 9/8 as three groups of three, but Berlioz sets it up as nine straight beats with the strong beat on six.

I almost married a chorister three decades ago, and when she was out rehearsing I would put on the Ormandy recording of this piece and sing along with the baritone part.

At 2:00 the time signature switches to 3/4 and the key to C Major, and I loved singing the background baritone part that keeps the pulse.

When the Lacrimosa returns in 9/8 at 4:20, Berlioz makes use of the four separate brass bands in the balconies of the hall or church as brass expostulations during the choral work. At 4:45 he brings in the separate section of tympani, using them the same way he uses the brass bands.

At 6:45 he switches to A Major for the 3/4 section. But what a surprise awaits! At 7:18 there is a titanic battle between the chorus, insisting on E, and the brass section, insisting on D#. It’s the battle between heaven and hell! And then Berlioz plays his trump card. At 8:28 he staggers the orchestra and chorus one-half beat off each other to take advantage of the echo in the hall. He ends it in a triumphal A Major, letting the sound taper off into a pianissimo.

Berlioz: Requiem, Lacrimosa
