The building has Tiffany windows and was beautifully kept. The organ had a somewhat typical stoplist which I don't completely recall, except that it had Diapasons in all divisions,two on the Great (?), lots of unison stops, but mixtures as well; even the Vox Angelica in the choir was exceptionally beautiful. The reeds were exceptional also. If someone from Orange (Houston) or Casavant is lurking, it would be great to see that stoplist published. The point of this post, actually, is to see what other "hidden treasures" people know of around the country; those delightful instruments found is unexpected places.   bruce cornely o o o __________ o o o ago (dean) ohs o o __________ o o

I have used them often and have been very satisfied with the service (a/k/a promptness) and prices.   I can also speak highly of Malecki. I remember spending almost a whole day in their warehouse in Grand Rapids.

Skinner in Benton Harbor, MI that was "untouched and unimproved" as of the early 1990's. Old stone building, wonderful acoustics, ravishing orchestral sounds. 30-40 rks on 4 manuals. What a jewel!   Then of course there was the Schantz in the Court Street UMC in Lynchburg, VA. Wonderful romantic instrument with beautiful exposed pipework, it was the second pipe organ I ever played.   I'll remember more later, I'm sure...   Jonathan Orwig Minister of Music, Bethany Church Redlands, CA

It would be great to know of three jewels from this vintage still extant.   bruce cornely o o o __________ o o o ago (dean) ohs o o __________ o o

I think it came with my "Diapason" magizine. I think I'm going to get that 800 page book on organ tuning, I need a little work in that area. I just finised revoicing our 2/11 Tellers organ at my church. It was a great experience!   Jillian

(back) Subject: Re: organic apathy From: GRS Co LVR <GRSCoLVR@aol.com> Date: Fri, 5 Dec 1997 21:36:29 EST   Hi Karl: Roc here,,,,an older but wiser sometimes organ tech and organist...Ya you will have that apathy in Sam Goody's and places of that ilk...Suggest you send to Organ Historical Society POBox 26811 Richmond VA 23261 and ask for their 1998 catalog. You will be impressed, there's lots of music of all types in that catalog and Bill VanPelt that handles their catalog sales is very efficient,altho they are busy at this time of the year BTW,,,you have a very interesting name,,,its close to that of a former,,,and maybe still in business,,,,music publisher,,,but I think that Karl Fisher was without the "C",,,,,,,,,,,,at any rate,,hope this helps you with the music both tapes and CD's are available from OHS   Roc

Every time I see your name come across my screen, I have these memories of Berlin. There is a Schultheis brewery there. They broadcast one of those unforgetable commercials...."Was trinken wir? SCHULTHEIS BIER!"...back to organs...   John

I would not consider using it all the time. You can run my pistons, and won't find the tremulant pre set on anything.   Love to experiment.   Jim > "Pipe Up and Be Heard!" > PipeChat: A discussion List for pipe/digital organs & related topics > HOMEPAGE : http://www.pipechat.org > List: mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org > Administration: mailto:admin@pipechat.org > Subscribe/Unsubscribe: mailto:requests@pipechat.org
