    Okay, what marks does the organist have on the score with those circular labels?

    I haven't attended a performance of the Brahm's Requiem in NYC; and, I haven't listened to a full recording of it, either.

    Although the Mormon Tabernacle Choir does a good job, my attitude towards the Mormon Church is so extremely negative that I prefer to avoid anything connected with it. Their sending funds from all over the U.S. to oppose marriage equality in California was completely, totally, and entirely unacceptable.

    My guess is it's reminders to change the registration of the organ (voicing/stops)

    Ah, cool, I can see that: it's not related to the choir because in this case, the organist is not directing the choir; and, given the size and complexity of the registers...

    And the sheet music wouldn't have register marks.

    And a Jewish college instructor of Music Appreciation doesn't teach his students Wagner and Strauss...

    The lds allow membership for gays, Dick Cheney's daughter is both mormon and lesbian.

    The gay lds population of several southwest cities is substantial, such as Flagstaff, Arizona and palm springs, California.

    The mormons, like any other fundamentalist religion, have a national group of gay mormons who have meet ups. Can't recall the name. Anyone know?
