(back) Subject: Best Lining for Pipe Chambers? Any thoughts? From: cathedral@linknet.net Date: Fri, 15 Aug 1997 08:11:19 -0500   I'm wondering what would be the best material to use to line the walls of a pipe chamber in order that it be as "reflective" as possible.   Normal building material like drywall sheetrock seems to me to be mighty porous and thus inappropriate. What would be the best alternative? Plywood painted with several coats of polyurathane? Masonite? Some sort of skin of metal (say aluminum)?   What think ye?

I and other builders have used it with great success.   timp >timp@usinternet.com>

(Just kidding) Plastic lamanate is good I guess, but VERY expensive, $ 80.00 a 8' x 4' sheet and up. You might just want to paint the drywall with a semi gloss paint. IT should work fairly well, just think of empty rooms in houses with no carpeting.   William C.  
(back) Subject: Question on Space Music From: Vernon Moeller <vernonm@ccsi.com> Date: Fri, 15 Aug 1997 15:20:55   Howdy, Y'All!   Today while waiting at St David's Episcopal Church for my organ teacher, I browsed in their bookshop, and ended up purchasing a wonderful CD that I'm listening to while I type this. It's called "Bill Douglas - Circle of Moons". His music is "Celtic"-inspired. I guess you'd call it Space Music. I have a friend who calls it "hippie sex music," but that's not what I use it for; it's much too relaxing to be romantic. Anyway, I was wondering if any of you folks knew where I might buy some of Douglas' sheet music. I know he sells music to his choral arrangements. If you want to hear some truly lovely music, get either this CD or another of his called "Deep Peace". Both CD's have choral pieces that use Irish text or poetry of William Blake. Too bad it's not really Christian in nature - the music is hauntingly beautiful. Lots of electronic stuff, with solos by orchestral instruments, especially bassoon and English horn, as well as piano and choir.   If there's any organ in there, it's well-hidden.   \/\/\

From: "David Howarth" <dhowarth@worldnet.att.net> Date: Fri, 15 Aug 1997 16:08:58 -0500   Masonry or concrete has been the most popular favorite for some. I haven't tried it, but the concrete wall board [as opposed to drywall] used in bathrooms because it is waterproof and made of concrete might be useful.

(back) Subject: Who is David Lasky? From: "Thomas E. Gregory" <tgregory@carroll1.cc.edu> Date: Fri, 15 Aug 1997 19:20:29 -0600 (CDT)   Greetings:   In recent years I have come across several compositions written by David Lasky. Does anyone know who he is?   His music is very well constructed and falls beneath the fingers of most organists with reasonable technique   I am playing his setting of Partita on "St. Anne" this Sunday.   Thanks in advance.   Tom Gregory First Baptist Church (An American Baptist Congregation) Waukesha, WI
