(back) Subject: Ahlborne MIDI modules From: john cormack <jcormack@cpcug.org> Date: Mon, 01 Sep 1997 23:10:12 -0400   Dear List:   I just joined this list today, so this subject may have been already covered. If so, please refer me to where I can get copies.   I have a Rodgers 790 with two MIDI pistons on each of the three divisions, i. e., Swell, Great, Pedal. The Ahlborne salesman in the Washington DC are has been around twice to demonstrate, but has been unable to make his module perform properly. Examples: 1) the reversible stop tabs are not reversible when connected to my organ, 2) we have been unable to select the preset memories on the Ahlborne module from the organ.   We have two MIDI devices that can have the MIDI program change number selected from the organ, so the problem is not with the organ. Also we can select the presets on the Allen MDS Expander II from the organ, and save the presets to the general pistons, or the divisional pistons. So the Allen MIDI box works the way it is supposed to.   Is there anyone on this list who has had experience with the Ahlborne Romantic MIDI module (or any of the three other Ahlborne modules) or knows of an Ahlborne representative who knows how to change the master channel to channel 1. That seems to be the required change.   Sincerely,   John G. "Jack" Cormack Potomac, MD  
(back) Subject: Re: hidden tunes From: George.Greene@rossnutrition.com Date: Tue, 2 Sep 1997 10:12:43 -0400   I'm planning to do something with "Across the Field" (OSU fight song) for my postlude on the Sunday before the Ohio State-Michigan game this year. I don't think I'll be in too much danger of being fired unless I throw in "Hail to the Victors"!   Thanks to Tom's post, I now know that I'm not the only person who has considered such a thing!     2222222 2 George Greene, Senior Chemist 2222222 Analytical Research and Development 2 Abbott Laboratories, Ross Products Division 2222222 D104115-RP4-2 GGGGGGGG 625 Cleveland Avenue G Columbus, Ohio 43215 _ _o G GGGG Voice 614-624-3362, FAX 614-624-7270 _`\ <._ G G George.Greene@RossNutrition.Com (_)/ (_) GGGGGGGG   ....and Organist, Sunbury (Ohio) Church of the Nazarene.  
(back) Subject: Suggested Music in Memory of Princess Diana From: Vernon Moeller <vernonm@ccsi.com> Date: Tue, 02 Sep 1997 10:06:04   Friends:   While I've never been one to follow the adventures and misadventures of the British royal family, this last weekend was certainly one tinged with a sadness I will long remember. I haven't felt this low about the death of a public figure since President Kennedy was murdered in Dallas - I was in 7th grade at the time, and will never forget exactly where I was when his death was announced. Then, as now, I felt that someone who could really make a difference to my world and its future had been viciously stolen, and that the we would all suffer for such a loss.   Therefore, I would like to add my very sincerest condolences, and that of my family and friends, to our British friends on the loss of perhaps the last remaining bright star near the royal family. I pray that her sons will carry with them in their hearts the outright goodness and concerned care for the common folk that their mother showed during her all-too-brief stay with us. Perhaps they can work together to add lustre to the Crown when the reins of leadership are handed over to them.   In her memory, I will play as a piano prelude on this coming Sunday, Ravel's "Pavan for a Dead Princess." I realize that Ravel was referring to a princess who had died centuries ago, but I think that the somber harmonies more than adequately portray the sadness and loss we carry in our hearts.   \/\/\    
(back) Subject: Re: Suggested Music in Memory of Princess Diana From: Stanley E Yoder <syoder+@andrew.cmu.edu> Date: Tue, 2 Sep 1997 11:41:40 -0400 (EDT)   Excerpts from mail: 2-Sep-97 Suggested Music in Memory o.. by Vernon Moeller@ccsi.com > In her memory, I will play as a piano prelude on this coming Sunday, > Ravel's "Pavan for a Dead Princess."   Another possibility is the spacious tune from 'Jupiter' in Holst's "Planets". Cast as a hymntune 'Thaxted', it is appearing in hymnal supplements stateside. With the more-or-less secular text "I vow to thee, my country" it was sung at her wedding in '81. I used it during the distribution last Sunday, first softly, then on Swell reeds w/ 32'. Yet another possibility is the Nimrod variation from Elgar's Enigma vars. Often used as a memorial piece in the UK. Also, Flor Peeters' Elegy. Stan Yoder Pittsburgh

But do check out the text, you'll find it's less secular than you think. In fact, would that all "patriotic" hymns conveyed a similar message about priorities to God and country.   Ken Sybesma

From: Otto Pebworth <opebwrth@gte.net> Date: Tue, 02 Sep 1997 23:43:14 -0400   ....then there was the time that a priest friend of mine was officiating at a wedding where the first piece of the prelude was "Air on a G-String." Needless to say, the humour of the listing struck him just-so, and he almost didn't make it through the service!
