I am not pleased. What's more important? A decorative organist sitting silently on an empty organ stool, or a working organist doing her job to the best of her ability?
WORDS FOR AN ORGAN BENCH
That music is there to be played
By an organist who is dismayed
That folk would deride her
For piling beside her
The scores that are tools of her trade.
MORE WORDS FOR AN ORGAN BENCH
I choose what to play from this pile
And yes, it will stay here a while
I dispute that it’s stoury –
I will NOT file like fury –
My music, my playing, my style.
