Ha ha!   I was thinking...wonder if I should introduce myself formally...I think most of you know me...   Anywho, we have a visiting priest for the next few weeks. His name is father Wreh and he is from Liberia. He came here with his adopted son who lost his sight due to measles. Kwame (his son) had a cornea transplant here in Syracuse. Talk about weird...one week the kid is blind, the next he can see.   Was lost but now am found.   Anyways, Fr. Wreh preached about materlialism this morning. This was a really good sermon for a few different reasons. First of all, I'm a Buddhist. I believe in God and heaven, but I see Christ, heaven, hell, etc, in a different light. So Fr. Wreh was essentially preaching Buddhism to -me- at least.   So I was hoping he wouldn't ask me what denomination I am. He didn't. But if he did, it might cause some weird relationships in the church.   Has anybody else had this problem yet? And how did you deal with it? Personally, I see this as "just a job". I go, I play, I get paid. I like the fact that people are touched by my music, but my primary concern is (a) experience and (b) money.   OK, so it's very un-Buddhist of me.

Calif., begging for an organist, since the resident there got fed up and called in right before the service and told them, "Cut me a check...I'm OUTTA here!"   So, not knowing ANYTHING about Baptist liturgy (if they even HAVE such a thing), I go meet the minister of music and the pastor on Friday, prepping for services on Sunday. Simple enough, I thought...a few "ol' Southern" hymns that are sight-readable, and stay away from the baroque and heavy on the mushy stuff.   All is well right before the first service. Rev. Pastor comes up and asks if I'm interested in becoming a member of the congregation. I open my big yap and say, "No, that's OK, I'm really Roman Catholic." WRONG thing to say. I was dismissed forthwith, and they proceded sans music all the rest of the day! Talk about your bigots....   Needless to say, this left a REAL bad taste in my mouth! Too bad, too...they had a pretty decent Casavant (Mon Dieu! L'orque Catholique! Alors!) They probably went to country CCM...LOL!   DeserTBoB

(back) Subject: Robert Morton Stop Rail Finish - Cross Posted From: <PipeLuvr@aol.com> Date: Sun, 2 Aug 1998 23:41:02 EDT   Does anyone have any idea of the composition of the rough surface used on Robert Morton Theatre Organ stop rails? The material in question is colored approximately the same as the rest of the wood including a final coat of varnish, but has the approximate texture of very small aquarium gravel! I am curious what was used (handful of LARGE sand, etc.) to produce the rough texture.   Also, does anyone have any idea what the Morton thinking was on adding this rough surface???   Best wishes, Bob Acker

Unfortunately, now that he is furnishing brainpower to an electronic producer it seems that critical matters are out of his hands. American electronic orgomachine builders will sacrifice anything, except profit. Lord only knows how the name Phelps would be of benefit to any industry. >> Come on Cornely.....I don't think you're really watching anything..or at least your're far behind the times! Phelps retired from Allen two or three years ago!!! I believe he is supervising restoration the A-S organ in the Mother CS Church in Boston. Jerry in Seattle  
(back) Subject: XPOST: Pipe Dreams, Tom Hazelton From: Bob Scarborough <desertbob@truelink.net> Date: Sun, 02 Aug 1998 22:48:00 -0700   After being tipped off by another Lister on one of these lists, I caught "Pipe Dreams" on our local PBS FM outlet here in Southern Calif., KUSC. Tom Hazelton was the featured organist on both the 1924 EMS at Trinity Episcopal in SF, as well as the amazing Wurlitzer at the Castro Theater, also in SF. I just have one thing to say....WOW!   What's nice about getting older now is that you can hear performances like this in great fidelity over FM, unlike not that many years ago. And what a performance! The orchestral organ is definately back, as are transciptions. Tom's "overture" rendition of South Pacific on the Castro Wurlie was incomparable. His performance of Johnny Mercer's "Blues in the Night" showed how he could really entertain and reach an audience. A transciption of Tchaikovsky's "Andante Cantabile" underscored the genius of both Tom's interpretation and E.M. Skinner's building the best in orchestral instruments. Ending the program were members of the Organ Historical Society joining Tom in a musical offering of "Hyphredahl"(sp?) ("Love Devine, All Love Excelling")...which brought a tear or two to my eye. THIS kind of music IS a religious experience!   DeserTBoB

Unfortunately, I was only able to hear the "South Pacific" medley and Hyfrydol (High Fry Doll works mnemonically for me) because the other RealAudio broadcast that I wanted to hear, New York Yankees Baseball, conflicted. What a dilemma! Anyway, does anyone know of any other RealAudio broadcasts of Pipedreams, other than Monday afternoon at noon Central Time at http://pipedreams.mpr.org/ ?   Kurt Kehler
