(back) Subject: Aussie Wurlitzer turns 80 From: "Darren Everitt" <DEVERITT@BIGPOND.COM> Date: Sun, 7 Dec 1997 21:14:32 +1100   Last night Saturday 6-12-97 I had the pleasure of being one of twenty five people to be invited to the 80th Birthday of a very special Wurlitzer the first one ever to hit the shores of Australia.It resides in a private home in Geelong on the south coast of Australia 1hour out of Melbourne. The instrument is a 2/8 complete with roll player and is completely original apart from the addition of a tibia rank of the same vintage. As I understand it the instrument was brought out firstly to Sydney and used as a demonstration instrument for a couple of months and was then installed in its present location, pretty impressive I think, that an instrument such as this is still residing in its original home and is still loved and cared for by the same Family,what an heirloom. Thanks to those who organised the night and prepared the organ it was a great night.   thats all for now thought you might enjoy hearing whats happening down under Darren

I guess I just said something very stupid :-) I didn't know Syracuse and Long Island were that far from eachother... When we (dumb Belgians) hear talking about New York, we automatically compare it to our major cities :-) which are off course small towns in comparison to NYC :-)))   cheers :-)     Philippe Beullens Organist of the St. Agatha Church at Wilsele-Putkapel (Louvain, Belgium) Assistant-organist of St. Rumbold Cathedral at Malines (Belgium) ------------------------------------ooOoo------------------------------- Audenhovenlaan 77 - B-3190 BOORTMEERBEEK - Belgium Tel: 32-15-51.19.17 Fax: 32-15-51.80.52 E-mail: bulls.oil@tornado.be - URL: http://www.tornado.be/~bulls.oil/index.html ------------------------------------ooOoo--------------------------------------    
(back) Subject: Books and Music on the web. From: Nelson and Tracy Denton <ndenton434@bigwave.ca> Date: Fri, 05 Dec 1997 11:52:47   Considering all the recent threads about "Where can I find such and such a book or recording.", I thought i'd pass this along to all of you.   This message just came through on my e-mail from GEOCITIES ( this is a company that provides free free web pages to the general public to be used for whatever topics you like.)   Considering the proposed linkup with Amazon.com I would like to suggest that anyone wishing to Sell - Organ Piano Harpsichord, or other music related books - or whatever. To look into what may be a great way to improve your sales.   There is probably a major catch somewhere here but Amazon books is a big company and they pride themselves on finding just about any book available.   Perhaps as a industry/trade/enthusiat's group we can talk somebody into doing the same thing with recordings and music.   Web pages are free at Geocities and the setup can be found at   http://www.geocites.com     I'm not getting paid for this plug and I'm not selling any books or recordings. :-))   Just passing along some interesting info. This is all probably too good to be true, but what the heck - check it out.   * * * * * * * * * * *   EXPLORE AMAZON.COM   As a continuing part of our efforts to provide Homesteaders with the best programs possible, GeoCities has joined forces with Amazon.com, Earth's biggest bookstore. The timing couldn't be better -- Homesteaders can start shopping right now for the holiday season by browsing Amazon's 2.5 million books at: <http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/stores/geo89375723/>. Later this week, look for Amazon deals throughout the neighborhoods. In the near future, GeoCities will be offering Amazon's Associates Program to Homesteaders giving you the opportunity to sell books directly from your homepages through Amazon.com. "As the largest and fastest growing community on the Internet, GeoCities already offers our millions of members and visitors a variety of valuable shopping opportunities," said David Bohnett, president and CEO of GeoCities. "We recognize that expanding our online commerce offerings enhances this value proposition for our users and we are excited to be partnering with Amazon.com to further this mission."   ******************** Beyond this I don't know anything more.   Nelson

Sydney has ... is it 3 million people or is that more by now, I have no idea. :)   Oh no, I'm being non-organic again!   ~Sheridan~

New York City is a relatively small area; New York State encompasses more than 800 miles from Buffalo to Montauk. Long Island itself is 118 miles long!

Can someone illuminate this further with some >examples of literature and registration? >Gracias!   Fenner Douglass' "The Language of the Classical French Organ" has documentation, listing Nivers, Le Begue, Raison, Chaumont, and the Correttes (Gaspard and Michel) as suggesting Grand Jeu (reed plenum) with or without tremblant fort, in sources from 1676-1737. Dom Bedos, writing toward the end of the 18th C., doesn't mention it.   It must have been common to use the tremblant fort with the big reeds, as Daquin lists one of his Noels as "sur les jeux d'anches sans tremblant".   http://www.sover.net/~popel
