(back) Subject: MAXimum REGER From: "John L. Speller" <jlspeller@stlnet.com> Date: Wed, 17 Dec 1997 18:15:47 -0600 (CST)   I just received an advance copy of the long awaited CD of Peter Sykes playing Reger on the 1931 4-78 Steinmeyer organ at the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament in Altoona, Pa. This instrument was restored in 1992 by the firm, Columbia Organ Works, of which I am a Director, so I am of course delighted by all the publicity :-) The CD is called MAXimum REGER, Raven CD AOR-430. MAXimum REGER is a very good description as the sound is truly MASSIVE, and Bill Van Pelt has excelled himself in miking the instrument. I'm sure Reger himself would have LOVED it. There are some rapturous softer moments too, and the acoustics of the building are, of course, simply awesome. It goes without saying that Peter Sykes' playing is, as always, excellent. The works on the CD are:   Phantaisie und Fuge fuer Orgel ueber B-A-C-H, Op. 46 Benedictus, Op. 59 No. 9 Introduktion und Passacaglia d-moll, (1900) Melodia, Op. 129 No. 4 Capriccio, Op. 129 No. 5 Basso ostinato, Op. 129 No. 6 Phaintaisie und Fuge fuer Orgel ueber den Choral *Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme*, Op. 52 No. 2   The CD is, or will shortly be, available through the OHS by calling 804/353-9226.   Diane Bish has also recently recorded one of her "The Joy of Music" series (Program No. 97-09) on the Steinmeyer at Altoona, though I have no information on when and where it will or has been broadcast.   John.    
(back) Subject: 1997 Small Organ Challenge From: CDKrug <CDKrug@aol.com> Date: Wed, 17 Dec 1997 23:24:01 EST   Okay guys, I'm at it again. This year, instead of asking for a specific number of ranks, I beg you to consider my parents living room.   The room in question measures 30' by 15' (approx 10m by 5m). The ceiling is 12 feet (~4m), with a full basement below. Good place to put your wind supply.   Put an organ in this space! There are two mantles--the better to hold a couple of sets of jingle bells. Your specification needn't be realistic--in fact, the more fanciful the better, especially if it makes a good story.   You must leave 100 square feet for listeners, at least 3 feet wide (none of my friends looks like Kate Moss).   NO FAIR GIVING THE SPEC FOR YOUR CHURCH'S INSTRUMENT! You're a creative person. Prove it! :-)   Like last year, my cats (4, at last count) will be the judges. There is one female (spayed), two geldings, and a tom kitten whose days of sowing wild oats are numbered. Like last year, you will be awarded the undying admiration of your peers. In other words, there is no prize.     Best wishes to all for a joyous holiday season.     Charles
