A Unique Choir

September 1, 2012

When Mitch Miller died in July 2010, most people remembered him as the man who invited everyone to sing along. On his popular 1960s TV program Sing Along with Mitch, an all-male chorus sang well-loved songs while the words appeared on the screen so viewers could join in. A Los Angeles Times obituary cited Miller’s belief that one reason for the program’s success was the appeal of his chorus: “I always made a point of hiring singers who were tall, short, bald, round, fat, whatever—everyday-looking guys.” From that unified diversity came beautiful music in which everyone was invited to participate.

In Romans 15, Paul called for unity among the followers of Christ—“that you may with one mind and one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ” (v.6). From several Old Testament passages, he spoke of Gentiles and Jews together singing praise to God (vv.9-12). A unity that had been considered impossible became reality as people who had been deeply divided began thanking God together for His mercy shown in Christ. Like them, we are filled with joy, peace, and hope “by the power of the Holy Spirit” (v.13).

What a unique “choir” we belong to, and what a privilege it is to sing along!

Lord, we are grateful that we can be a part of Your
family. Help us to live in unity with our brothers and
sisters in Christ so that others may see how gracious
You are and want to know You too. Amen.
Unity among believers comes from our union with Christ.

Read: Romans 15:5-13

That you may with one mind and one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. —Romans 15:6
Bible in a Year:
Jeremiah 47-49

Brother and sister, ages 9 and 4, win hero award for saving mom

August 30, 2012 12:00 am • Jamar Younger and Veronica M. Cruz Arizona Daily Star

On the morning of July 13, Kevin DeMent, 9, and his younger sister Tayla displayed a calmness not usually seen in children their age.

Their mother, Melody DeMent, suffered an accidental gunshot wound at their east-side home after a gun fell out of a safe and discharged while she was reaching for some documents.

The bullet ricocheted off the safe twice and struck Melody DeMent in the upper chest, said Capt. Barrett Baker, a Tucson Fire Department spokesman.

The children ran to a neighbor’s home for help while their father, Scott DeMent, put pressure on his wife’s chest as she bled profusely.

On Wednesday, the two children and their neighbor, Asya Bakiyeva, received a Hero’s Award from the Tucson Fire Department for their quick response, which is credited with saving DeMent’s life.

The award was presented during a ceremony at Station No. 12, 250 S. Harrison Road

“I just know God had a hand in it. There’s no way I would’ve survived,” said Melody DeMent, who operates a chiropractic practice with her husband.

The incident happened in the 9700 block of East Hollow Place.

Kevin and 4-year-old Tayla ran to get help from a neighbor who was a firefighter, but he wasn’t home. So they went to Bakiyeva, a phlebotomist at Northwest Medical Center, who helped the children’s father apply pressure to Dement’s wound until paramedics arrived.

“I got there and saw the husband on the phone,” Bakiyeva said. “I went and grabbed some clothes and, as soon as I saw the blood, I put clothes on the wound.”

Tucson fire Capt. Bruce Avram said people usually overreact during those situations, which can make it harder for paramedics.

“Everything went right from the 911 operator. She was able to give instructions. The cops got us in there quick. The little boy was pointing to the right place,” said Avram, who responded with paramedics from Station 12.

Kevin, a Boy Scout, credited his faith in God for helping him stay calm during the chaotic time. But when he found out his mother would be OK, joy overtook him.

“I felt like I was going to fall to the ground and cry tears of joy,” he said.

This week we look at Frederic Chopin: The Harvest.

Astrologers call it the Saturn Return. At the age of 29 to 30, Saturn returns to its position in the birth chart. Saturn only gives back what you put into it. If you work hard, then at the end of that 30 year period, you get a payoff. If you don’t work hard, you get failure. In the period of 1839 to 1840, Robert Schumann and Frederic Chopin, both born in 1810, turned out their best work. For Schumann it was the year of his best songs and his greatest output of chamber music. For Chopin, it was the year he turned out one masterpiece after another.

For Fred, it didn’t start auspiciously. He and the French female novelist George Sand took off for an idyllic winter on the Spanish island of Majorca – or so they thought. First, the locals had a problem with an unmarried couple “living in sin”, so Fred, George and her two children from her marriage were forced to set up camp in a cold, dank former monastery. Then Majorca suffered its rainiest winter in decades, making Fred’s tuberculosis worse.

To add insult to injury, the customs officials in Majorca held Chopin’s expensive Pleyel piano hostage to ”la mordida”, “the bite”, an old Spanish tradition that predates Mexico. George eventually paid half the ransom to get the piano released. Once the piano was safely back in Fred’s possession, Chopin launched into the most productive period of his life.

Robert Schumann wrote of Chopin’s preludes: “Here are sketches, studies, ruins, eagles’ feathers, all strangely intermingled. In all of them one recognizes Chopin by his pauses and by his impetuous respiration. Here is the boldest, proudest poet-soul of his time. To be sure, the book contains some morbid, feverish, repellent traits, but everyone who looks will find something to enchant him.”

Fred had been working on those preludes for years, and now it was time to get them ready for publication. Technically, a prelude is an introduction to another piece of music. Bach had written preludes and fugues in each key, and the prelude was intended to set the table for the fugue. For Chopin, these preludes were short, standalone pieces, one in each key, each one a gem.

We’ll start with the two preludes with no key signature.

Chopin always said his favorite composer was Bach, but one searches hard for signs of the German master in Chopin’s output. This is the only piece where a link to Bach is obvious. It’s a short, joyous, difficult piece, with tricky phrasing in the right hand.

Chopin: Prelude in C, Op. 28/1

Classical music lovers like to play a game called “dittersdorfing”, which means to guess the composer of a piece. It comes from Karl Dittersdorf, a contemporary of Haydn, whose music sounds a lot like Haydn, but isn’t quite up to Haydn’s standards. When you play this piece, the first guess as to the composer is always Stravinsky, followed by Prokofiev and Scriabin. People are shocked when you say it’s Chopin.

Like the C Major Prelude, it’s only one page. The right hand has to be played very lightly. As the piece progresses, it becomes obvious that it’s really not in any key at all. Chopin chickens out at the end, forcing an ending in A minor, and it might have been more effective had he just let it fade into nothingness. One great pianist of a century ago said it was like coming home to an empty house after the funeral of your wife and children. That’s an exaggeration, but the bleakness and emptiness are obvious. This is a very modern piece.

Chopin: Prelude in A minor, Op. 28/2

Frederic Chopin published his 24 preludes in 1839, and it’s time to look at the preludes with sharps in their key signatures.

Unlike its one page predecessors, the third prelude takes up two whole pages! This is an exercise in agility for the left hand with the theme in the right.

Chopin: Prelude in G, Op. 28/3

This one page masterpiece is a melancholy cry from the heart. It’s one of the famous “Five Easy Pieces” from the movie of the same name. Most remember Jack Nicholson’s scene in the diner where he jousts with the waitress who won’t bend on substitutions for orders. But my favorite scene is where Nicholson plays this piece, and the lady listening to it exclaims about the “feeling” with which he played. Nicholson’s response, “I felt nothing,” was something I’ve always wanted to say. (I have a devilish sense of humor!)

Jack Nicholson plays this prelude, but not all that well

And here is what a professional can do with it.

Chopin: Prelude in E minor, Op. 28/4

The fifth prelude takes up two whole pages, and they are two difficult pages. The basic idea is duple time in the right hand and triple time in the left, but with the theme staggered in four in the right hand. Very tricky!.

Chopin: Prelude in D, Op. 28/5

The sixth prelude is another cry from the heart where the fifth finger of the right hand plays individual drops of rain. Fred wrote this one night when his girlfriend and her children were late arriving at the monastery during a storm, and he feared something might have happened to them.

Chopion: Prelude in B minor, Op. 28/6

The seventh prelude is a mere 16 bars and is one of his sweetest and simplest pieces.

Chopin: Prelude in A, Op. 28/7

The eighth prelude is one of Chopin’s most difficult pieces. I was too frightened by the printed page to try it. It runs a full four harrowing pages.

Chopin: Prelude in F# minor, Op. 28/8

This little one pager gets mistaken for Beethoven. It’s like walking through a church and watching the darkness give way to light as it streams through the windows.

Chopin: Prelude in E, Op. 28/9

The tenth prelude is another one pager that is there and gone in a flash.

Chopin: Prelude in C# minor, Op. 28/10

The eleventh prelude is a one page, short, sweet wonder.

Chopin: Prelude in B, Op. 28/11

The twelfth prelude is an exercise for the wrist, and its three pages are as difficult as anything Chopin wrote in his etudes.

Chopin: Prelude in G# minor, Op. 28/12

The last of the “sharps” preludes is two pages of serenity. Just lie on your back, and watch the clouds drift by.

Chopin: Prelude in F#, Op. 28/13
