They say time flies when you're having fun!   I guess I must be one of the orignal 25 (I think!) -I'm sure I'll get severely admonished if I speak out of turn here - and I have to say, for the most part, that I've very much enjoyed the commoradarae that's been on this list.   Sorry I've not posted as much as previously, in that I've been unindated with things to do and trying to catch-up from the 8-day absense from the shop in connection with my father's recent passing.   I'm trying VERY HARD to stay out of the pipe VS digital fray on the "other" list. I just sit back, smile and say "thou fools"; knowing that there is a glut of wonderful second-hand pipe organs out there for anyone who really wants to have one. For that reason, I really get disgusted at hearing about costs being the limitation. Maybe for esoteric monstrosites, but for a solid instrument for a church that's hurting; it doesn't have to be.   I didn't mean to have that "debate" spill over into this list, so I'll shut up now, crawl back under my 32' Contra Bourdon, and go back to what I'm supposed to be doing!   Anyway, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PIPECHAT!!   x | | ________|________ | PIPECHAT | | One Year Old! | ________________|_______________|_________________ \/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/     Faithfully,   / ^ ^ \ { (O) (O) } --------oOOOo--------U-------oOOOo------------     "Arp in the Corn Patch"  
(back) Subject: "Procession of the Bulbs" From: Shirley <pnst@itw.com> Date: Tue, 07 Oct 1997 15:05:47   Hi, folks--   My mom just handed me a brochure from the church where I grew up. It's titled "We are Planting 6,000 Bulbs". The brochure explains that the congregation is creating a "Living Cathedral" in an open lot next to the church building. It will include The Prayer Garden; The Rock, River and Tree Garden; and The Welcome Walkway. The bulbs for the flowers will be provided by both church and congregation.   Sounds lovely, doesn't it?   But get this: They're planning a "Blessing of the Bulbs" service, followed by "The Procession of the Bulbs".   What got me laughing was at the thought of the music the organist will need to provide for this ceremony. Lessee: There's "Waltz of the Flowers" from _Nutcracker_... "Flower Drum Song" music.... "Tiptoe through the Tulips".... any other ideas?   On a more serious note, is there anything in classical literature that would be appropriate?   --Shirley

The tune is "Promise," the words are:   In the bulb there is a flower, In the seed, an apple tree; In cocoons, a hidden promise; Butterflies will soon be free! In the cold and snow of winter There's a spring that waits to be, Unrevealed until its season, Something God alone can see.   There's a song in every silence, Seeking word and melody; There's a dawn in every darkness, Bringing hope to you and me. From the past will come the future, What it holds, a mystery, Unrevealed until its season, Something God alone can see.   In our end is our beginning; In our time, infinity; In our doubt there is believing; In our life, eternity. In our death, a resurrection; At the last, a victory, Unrevealed until its season, Something God alone can see.   It can be found in the United Methodist Hymnal # 707.   Pete!    
(back) Subject: Re: PROCESSION OF THE BULBS From: bi286@scn.org (Joseph Azolino Jr.) Date: Tue, 7 Oct 1997 13:14:45 -0700 (PDT)   Perhaps something from the OrgelBULBlein. I'm thinking BWV 9108.   9108 <-- This is the closest I can come to spelling out 'bulb' with numbers.   I only had 2 hours sleep last night. That would 'splain' it.   Oh yeah, this is my first post to THIS list. Oh well...   au reservoir,   Joseph

(back) Subject: The secret of the Haskell Bass??? From: Prestant16@aol.com Date: Tue, 7 Oct 1997 21:23:42 -0400 (EDT)   I have tried to make a Haskell pipe using an 8' Violin Diapason pipe (Low C#) and a junk zinc string bass. The Viol. Diap. pipes is about 5" in diameter and the junk zinc string bass is about 2" in dia and goes from the top of the v. Dia. pipe to about 6" from the languid. The haskell tube is sealed at one end and the V. Diap. has a beard on it and approx a 3/7 cut up. I blow into the pipe and it plays the 8's first upper harmonic, and somtimes I get a 16' String sound out of it. My question is this: Is there a secret to regulating a Haskell string? or is there any rules to it?   Thanks,   William Catanesye (now at new address on aol)

Then get it to overblow to the fifth. Go half way between and try moving the bridge around the mouth to stablize the pipe. The beard and postition will be different for a Violone 8' and a 16' String.   This can be done by carfully lowering the languid to speed the pipe, raising it to slow the pipe.   Halfway between the two the pipe will flutter between the two overblows.     If you get it to overblow the octave, it will be slow; If you get it to overblow the fifth, it will be too quick; Somewhere betwix, the bridge will sound the fundimental.   Is this of any help or is it to technical??   Guy
