(back) Subject: LARRY FERRARI - Follow up From: kwkeller@juno.com (KARL W KELLER) Date: Fri, 21 Nov 1997 09:53:12 EST   A viewing for Larry is scheduled for Friday, November 28th at the Snover-Givnish Funeral Home at 1200 Route 130, Cinnaminson, NJ. from 9 am to 9 pm. A funeral Mass is scheduled for 10:30 am on Saturday, November 29th at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, Broadway & Market Sts., Camden, NJ. Burial (private) will be in Bala Cynwd, Pa. in a cemetary overlooking the TV station where he worked for 44 years.   It is reported that WPVI Channel 6 (Philadelphia) will present a tribute program to Larry's memory on Sunday, November 30th at 6:30 am.   It is interesting to note that Larry,although best know as an entertainer, presided over the large Casavant organ at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception for many years playing for the 11 am Mass. He provided his service "gratis" as his way of serving God.   A list member wrote to me saying he remembered Larry from his days of playing at Home Organ Shows and commented on how Larry would go from one number to another, to another without making any remarks. This was Larry's style. He let his music do the talking. I can remember Larry playing his last concert at the Dickinson High School (DTOS). Larry opened the concert with a few well chosen remarks then took his place at the console and played for an hour without making a comment. The second half was the same with the exception that he did announce his favorite hymn "How Great Thou Art". He played this hymn and continued with Shubert's "Ave Maria", Malotte's " Lord's Prayer", several hymn tunes woven into a medley, and concluding with a reprise of the "Lord's Prayer". The audience was on their feet and the applause was thundering. I must admit that tears were rolling down my cheeks -tears of joy- in appreciation for this splendid performance of these sacred works. Larry concluded his concert with an encore of a medley of songs of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, & Coast Guard. As a grand finale he played Berlin's "God Bless America" which again brought the audience to their feet and singing along as a "great choir".   Larry will be missed but, as long as we have his memory and his great records and tapes to listen to, he will always remain alive in our hearts.   Karl Musica est Dei donum optimi

It has a control for both speed and depth of the tremelo. If you have both those controls on a decent module, I would think you could customize it to your liking. I' m sure Ive seen a number of makes of such things. probably at Guitar Center. Their prices are hard to beat also.  
(back) Subject: Re:Free Organ Parts!!! From: MWORGLBAU@aol.com Date: Fri, 21 Nov 1997 18:57:41 -0500 (EST)   Dear List members,   We recently acquired an instrument from a church that had gone entirly CCM, and no longer was using their organ. It was, appearently, assemblied by members of the church, using recycled components of several different instruments. There are several items that I do not wish to retain, and as willing to give them away at no cost to anyone that wants them. These parts are located at a church in the Greater Los Angeles California area. Parts are as is, where is. Procurer is responsible for removal. First come, first serve. If you are interested (or know someone that is who is not a subscriber to these lists), please respond to me privately with a phone number, so as we can make arrangements. I would hate to these these parts tossed out (or more likely thrown into my fireplace), especially knowing how many of you are putting home organs together.   1. 4 stop (2 of the stops are duplexed) manual chest, manufactured by Moller, 35-1/2"X96". Was partially re-leathered, and is in pieces. Most of the screws are missing. Includes chest supports.   2. 4 stop manual chest (one stop a 3 rank mixture), vental style, builder unknown. 35-1/2"X72-1/2". Magnet board screws were removed, and are missing. Will probably need re-leathering. Includes chest supports.   3. 4 stop unit chest, electro-pneumatic, builder unknown. 33"X64-1/2" Leather in good condition, and all notes were working. Will need off-set chests for all of the basses of the 4 stops. Includs chest supports.   4. Expression shutters, I believe built by Morton. 63-1/2"X114-1/2"- 12 Blades. Includes individual shutter motor action. Primary cover screws missing.   5. Expression shutters, builder unknown. 70-1/4"X62-3/4"- 8 blades.   6. Expression motor, builder unknown. 6 stage unenclosed style (similar to the Organ Supply Industries style), with floor frame.   7. Power supply. 20 Amp Durst.   I may have other items in the future, and they will be posted in the future.     Michael R. Williamson Williamson-Warne & Associates Hollywood Ca.

I tried downloading their software but was unable to, and I want to set up my mom on it for her birthday so she can write me as often as she wants (am I asking for trouble here? could be!).   Thanks, \/\/\
