Music, skill, moral integrity behind LDS choir members SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Like air bubbles in a pool of water, the sound of music rises from the choir loft, fill- ing the hug-" hall with an ex- plosion of tx.. s "Hold it. Tnere's a lot of new people in here, and if you're going to stand out... we don't want you." Richard P. Condie, 75, con- ductor of the Mormon Taber- nacle Choir, bows his head and raises his aims. Silence. The organist looks up. The down- stroke. "That's better." Condie whispers as echoes bounce in the Tabernacle. "C'mon tenors, show the so- pranos- how it's done. Quiet. This is a prayer. Sing it like one. You're late.'' Up. down. Standing, sitting. Arms waving, tuton tapping. Condie moved the group through a three-hour rehear- sal of religious hymns and patriotic songs, with a smattering of show tunes. The choir is widely travell- ed and known for professional competence. Its 410 members are screened by officials of the 3.3-million-member Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints They must have a background of musical ability, moral integrity, church atten- dance and loyalty to the church's 10-per-cent tithing rule. They receive "no com- pensation other than the joy received in a church publication says. Condie handpicks members from a lengthy waiting list. The choir serves as a cross section of Mor- more than 50 occupations ranging from banker to glass blower. Nearly 30 per cent are housewives, a church spokesman said. The choir's home concert hall is the oval: shaped Tabernacle, com- pleted in 1867. The choir's sole accom- paniment is the Tabernacle's massive organ. The choir had its beginnings in a building called the Bowery, erected in 1847 less than two weeks after Brigham Young and the Mormon pioneers settled in the Salt Lake valley. The choir has achieved international fame. Its non- denominational weekly radio show on the Columbia Broad- casting System is in its 45th year. Condie, a 1928 graduate of the New England Conser- vatory of Music in Boston, took over as director of the choir in 1957 after 20 years as a soloist and assistant. The choir received a Grammy Award in 1959 for a recording of The Battle Hymn of the Republic. Condie said the choir's repertoire is "about songs, with two or three new ones added each month. Asked if he planned to retire soon. Condie said: "It's not for me to decide when I leave. I'm in a position to give the choir more now than ever before. They enjoy it and we have an excellent harmony." Condie still has some things he wants to do, such as taking the choir to the Soviet Union. Calvinist reformers weather storms in Europe, Canada By H. J. ANDERSON The Canadian Press Presbyterians derive their distinctive characteristics from the teachings of John Calvin lie was the Swiss Protes- tant reformer, historically portrayed erroneously, the Presbyterian Record says, as the humorless, dogmatic ty- rant of Geneva who, when not teaching a loveless doctrine of predestination, busied himself depriving his flock of all the pleasures of life. Histories have not been kind to Calvin, says The Record, official publication of the Canadian church. Starting in Switzerland, the Calvinistic movement moved to France. Germany, (he Netherlands and other Eu- ropean countries and acquired the name "Reformed." In the British Isles, the movement and its churches were called "Presbyterian It took firm root in Scotland. The opening sentence of The Book of Forms, the official rules of procedure for the Presbyterian Church in Can- ada which this year observes ils centennial, states that the church is in "historic contin- uity with the Church of Scot- land as reformed in 1560 SURVIVED 'WAR' But it is emphasized in A Short History of the Prcsby- lenan Church in Canada, pub- Jished by the church in 1967, that the Canadian church, while greatly influenced by Scottish Presbyterian churches in doctnne and form of worship, is not subservient to the Church of Scotland. That there is a Canadian church lo celebrate a centen- nial is viewed with thankful- ness by Presbyterians looking back a half-century to the "civil war'' of 1925 when the issue of church union rent the church. It now is the third largest Protestant denomina- tion in Canada with about 180.- 000 communicant members in 1.071 congregations. The Presbyterian Church in Canada had its beginnings June 15. 1875. when the first general assembly was con- stituted in Montreal. The 100th general assembly was held this year, in Kitchener. Ont.. with the 101st planned for Montreal in June of next year. The church was formed of a union of four different branches of Presbyterianisrn; The Presbyterian Church of Canada in connection with the Church of Scotland; the Can ada Presbyterian Church; the Presbyterian Church of the Lower provinces and the Presbylenan Church of the Maritime provinces in con- nection with the Church of Scotland A total of 534 ministers. 1.- 139 congregations and 90.653 communicants entered the un- ion of 1875. In telling the story of Pres- bytenanism in Canada, the Short History goes back to its beginnings in 1600 and says: "The preponderance of the Scots and Irish in the Presby- terian Church has at times ob- scured the solid contribution of other racial groups of the Reformed persuasion In- deed, the firsl representatives of the Reformed outlook and practice on Canadian soil were the Huguenots, the French Calvinists." The first real thrust of Presbyterianism came after the founding of Halifax in 1749 when Scottish and Irish set- tlers poured into the colony of Nova Scotia. In time, other branches were established in Upper and Lower Canada. By 1870, as a result of re- gional unions, the number of Presbyterian groups in Can- ada had been reduced to four, two in the Maritime provinces and two in Central Canada, and five years later all came together in the Presbyterian Church in Canada. Says the history: "As in all church-union ne- gotiations, there were diffi- culties to be overcome, ac- commodations to be made, compromises to be ac- cepted.... "The union was not abso- lutely unanimous. Twenty-one ministers and about 25 con- gregations, most of them con- nected with the former Church of Scotland synods, declined to enter the union but gradually these non- concurring congregations were absorbed into the main Presbyterian bodv." In the half-century after un- ion, synods grew lo eighft from four, presbyteries to 79 from 33 and the number of com- municant members to about 380.000. That harmonious period closed with disruption of the church. Organic union of the Meth- odist. Congregationalist and Presbyterian churches in Can- ada was proposed in 1902 in Winnipeg by Principal Wil- liam Patrick of Manitoba Col- lege, a Presbyterian. Methodists -and most Con- gregationaliste favored union but many Presbyterians bal- ked. A 1912 report to general assembly dn a referendum showed that at that time less than half the membership fa- vored union. The percentage changed' little in succeeding years. The'Short History deals ex- tensively with the controversy thai became increasingly bil- Kr. Not only were congrega- tions divided on the issue but divisions developed within fani.'.ies that took years to heal In 1925. when the United Church of Canada was formed. 154.243 of a reported Presbyterian membership of 379.762 refused to enter it.
