    The Trompette

    Christmas Greetings to all of you. I know this is a

    particularly busy time of year for church musicians,

    and I want to thank each of you for the beautiful

    ministry you offer to your congregations. I know

    you offer that year-round, but I think at Christmas it

    is especially significant, as you must often set aside

    your own family priorities for the needs of your

    churches. I look forward to seeing many of you at

    Karma Cahills home for the 12th Night celebration,

    and invite anyone who would like to participate in the Member Recital on

    February 12th at my church, Grand View Lutheran, Des Moines. You can

    see that instrument on the chapter website; call me for practice time

    (515-229-8816.) Merry Christmas to all of you!

    Deanna Snyder,

    Dean of the Central Iowa Chapter of the American Guild of Organists

    Please share the musical events that are

    happening in your church for inclusion

    Said composer Messiaen with heavy heart, "Translated titles are not Art!

    The Ascension isn't bad, But I find it rather sad

    That in German this becomes Die Himmelfahrt."

    Happy Birthday, Alice Jordan! Alice Yost Jordan was born in Davenport, Iowa, December 31, 1916, daughter of J. Frank

    and Anna H. Yost. Shortly after her birth, the family moved to Des Moines, where she

    attended Hubbell, Callanan and Roosevelt public schools. A graduate of Drake University,

    she actively participated in many of the school's activities. She pursued graduate studies at

    Drake, Columbia University and Union Theological Seminary. Drake honored her during

    their centennial year as "One in a Hundred." Grand View University, in 1986, conferred the

    honorary degree, Doctor of Letters upon her, and in 2006 Drake bestowed the honorary

    degree Doctor of Fine Arts. (Despite her many academic accomplishments in her

    undergraduate years, she almost did not graduate from Drake because she delayed the

    school's physical education requirement until her senior year. She always related this

    incident with a sly smile! And, in her presence, you had better be in control of your

    irregular verbs, particularly lie, lay, lain, as those who cared for her at 3801 Grand where

    she last resided, can attest.) Mrs. Jordan was listed in the first edition of Who's Who in American Women, and in Women in American Music.

    She was inducted into the Iowa Women's Hall of Fame in 2002. A widely-known composer, she was best known for

    more than 250 published choral and organ works and one of her best-known arrangements, "America the Beautiful,"was

    sung many times by the Iowa All-state Chorus. Sherrill Milnes of Metropolitan Opera fame, and Jon Spong, his

    accompanist, chose her "Take Joy Home", as a closing work on many of their world-wide concerts, including a White

    House Concert. Over 40 of her works had been commissioned by churches, universities and other organizations across

    the United States.
