We manufacture an electronic system for winded pipe organs. It would be a shame to not use your organ in its original form. Please call or email me with your specification, number of ranks, console details etc and maybe we can work something out.   Good luck   Ulric Gordon-Lewis President.     ---------- > From: Dr. Peter G.

From: ScottFop <ScottFop@aol.com> Date: Fri, 3 Apr 1998 21:01:06 EST   AS much as I will be the first to turn my nose up at certain genres of music in the name is "good repertoire..." I must admit that "The Palms" does have a certain character and charm that is dated, but also is is a very pretty little piece that does reach congregations' hearts.   Scott Foppiano  
(back) Subject: Player Pianos From: usd465@horizon.hit.net (Frank Johnson) Date: Sat, 4 Apr 1998 00:39:18 -0600   Someone was asking for sites containing information on player pianos. Somehow before I could reply I lost the post. If anyone sees this and is interested, I have several sites of interest I'd be glad to share.     Frank R.
