Our computer department has done a good job for us and made available a lot of information on our special music programs. If you wanna take a look the address is:   http://www.crpc.org   This will give you information on the organ (Ruffatti, 117-ranks, 5 manuals); the Concert Series (now in its 26 season); and the annual Church Music Explosion, and a bunch more.     Darryl by the Sea aka Darryl Miller Associate Director of Music Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church Fort Lauderdale, Florida

I always thought Diane was the keeper of that title!   By the way, outstanding web site! This should be a benchmark for all church web sites. I only wish some of those organ pictures were bigger so when I download them, they come out clearer on my 17" monitor.   > ---------- > From: cathedral@linknet.net[SMTP:cathedral@linknet.net] > Sent: Thursday, November 06, 1997 5:05 AM > To: PipeChat > Subject: Re: Coral Ridge Church web site > > >Hi, ya'll! > > > >I want to tell you about the Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church web > site. > >Our computer department has done a good job for us and made available > a > >lot of information on our special music programs.

I wish the organ was gutted > out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   Your description of this instrument does paint a pretty bleak picture. However:   Most of the older instruments used motor-generators driven from the blower fan by means of a belt. I have never heard of a Rectifier, especially one for pipe organs that preceeded about the 1940's, when LaMarche developed their now infamous ORGELECTRA units.   If you really DO have a rectifier (as in: no moving parts!) that dates from 1910 (I wonder if this is maybe a manufacturer's serial # instead?) it ought to be indoctrinated into the Unusual/Rare/Antique Pipe Organ Parts Hall of Fame!   Who built the thing?   Curious minds want to know. . .   Faithfully,   "Arp in the Corn Patch" Rich Schneider SCHNEIDER PIPE ORGANS, Inc.

(back) Subject: Nov 9: Guilmant Lecture-Recital: Post Chapel, WP From: patmai@juno.com (Patricia R. Maimone) Date: Thu, 6 Nov 1997 13:58:26 -0500   Agnes Armstrong of Altamont, New York, will present a lecture-recital on the works of the French Romantic composer Alexandre Guilmant Sunday, 9 November at 1700 hours (5:00 PM) at the Post Chapel (up the hill from the Post Exchange) for the members of the Central Hudson Valley Chapter of the American Guild of Organists. The pipe organ is a 3 manual, 57 rank hybrid; it began life as an Aeolian-Skinner in the NBC Studios; it was given to the cantonment-like Post Chapel in 1951; a Mo"ller console was added in 1970; Gress-Miles added 25 ranks in 1977. Ms. Armstrong will play several works by Guilmant; through the newsletter she has encouraged chapter members to bring their music to play from Guilmant's "The Practical Organist."   Members of the public are cordially invited to attend the free event, which will start with a performance of Guilmant's "Morceau Symphonique" by Barry Morrison, euphonium, and Patricia R. Maimone, organ. SSG Morrison is a member of the USMA Concert Band, and Ms. Maimone is the Organist/ Director of Musical Activities at the Post Chapel as well as being the SubDean and Program Chair for AGO Chapter 209. Refreshments will follow the program. For further info including directions, please call Ms. Maimone at (914) 938-2959 or e-mail her at <patmai@juno.com> (home) or <yp6867@sunams.usma.army.mil> (work)>

Did I miss something?   Was wondering how large the staff was, to support a church this size, especially the music staff.   Pictures of the organ are fabulous.   --Shirley
