(back) Subject: Re: John Cage From: Cliff Benham <cbenham@bellatlantic.net> Date: Wed, 12 Aug 1998 08:34:01 -0400   In this piece you mention Richard Purvis, whose recordings at Grace in SF are among my favorites. Have they been made available on CD? I only know of two LPs on the HI-FI label and at least one on WORD. Thanks    
(back) Subject: Round Lake-specs xpost From: Paul Opel <popel@sover.net> Date: Wed, 12 Aug 1998 09:13:36 -0400   Someone asked about the Ferris & Stuart organ at Round Lake, NY. I don't remember which list, so I'll xpost. It's really quite an instrument, although it doesn't really sound at its best in the auditorium, which has a roof but no walls. The stopknobs have an interesting layout- on either side, they are set out as a cross, a nice visual effect. Has this been done anywhere else?   x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x     Ferris & Stuart, for Calvary Episcopal Church, NY, 1847 alt.

Does he do any of his own "stuff" on them? I do remember him performing his choral-prelude on "Ton-Y-Botl" (you'd think if I could remember that one, I sure as hell could remember how to say, "High Fry Doll!!" LOL) at one of his recitals in SF.   The availability of Purvis recordings would be of interest to me, also!   DeserTBoB    
(back) Subject: Re: Posters From: <MUSCUR@aol.com> Date: Wed, 12 Aug 1998 11:53:53 EDT   In my recent move to Pasadena I came across a mint condition set of the Wurlitzer Company issued console posters issued still in its mailing tube addressed to me in Columbus, OH when I was serving as the final appointed house organist at the Ohio Theatre there. I've no anticipated use for them so if anyone wants to make an offer for them let me know via e-mail to muscur@aol.com (and be sure to put Poster Offer in the subject heading). I also found a my file of music from Jesse Crawford's personal collection (including his personal copies of single "pop" sheet music issues with his photo on the cover) that have his Jesse Crawford-Paramount Theatre library rubber stamp mark on them that I'm thinking someone might like to have as well?   Dennis James  
(back) Subject: Re: John Cage From: Cliff Benham <cbenham@bellatlantic.net> Date: Wed, 12 Aug 1998 12:09:26 -0400   I have to go move an M-3 right now but I'll get out the Purvis recordings and list all the details later today or tonight. He does play some of his own works on them by the way. I was at Grace several years ago, but none of Purvis' recordings were offered in the gift shop.

(back) Subject: Shrine Position Announcement From: <ScottFop@aol.com> Date: Wed, 12 Aug 1998 19:41:51 EDT   It is with a great deal of pride that I, on behalf of the clergy and staff at the Shrine of the Little Flower, Royal Oak, MI, announce the addition to our staff of Mr. W. Fredrick Krieger as our new Associate Organist and Director of Music. Fred comes to us from the Parish Church of St. Peter in Danbury Ct, where he served as the Organist-Choirmaster for three and one half years. Prior to that post, he served at St. Paul of the Cross in Park Ridge, Illinois and Trinity Episcopal Church in Newtown, Ct.   His duties will include playing daily and weekend Liturgies in alternation with myself, organizing and directing various children's and handbell choirs and reestablishing the Shrine Choir of Men ans Boys. This fall he will also establish an Advent Vespers and Recital series. Fred and I will both alternate playing for various weddings, funerals and other special Liturgies.   Scott F. Foppiano, Director of Music and Liturgical Coordination Shrine of the Little Flower, Royal Oak, MI  
(back) Subject: Shrine Kilgen Invitation From: <ScottFop@aol.com> Date: Wed, 12 Aug 1998 19:51:00 EDT   As stated in earlier posts, the Kilgen Grande Organ at the Shrine of the Little Flower in Royal Oak, Mi (a Detroit suburb) is available to be seen and played by any interested parties. My associate and I will maintain a very open door policy regarding seeing, hearing and playing the Kilgen. The instrument is a 1934 Kilgen symphonic organ of truly grand proportions and scaling that contains two identical four manual consoles, eight divisions, 100 ranks and over 7,000 pipes. It is definitely worth seeing and hearing as it is a very exciting and unique historical instrument. (Specifications and total details can be emailed upon request).   Due to the inordinately busy schedule at the Shrine, which is a very active Parish Church, walk-ins are discouraged although they will not be turned away if at all possible. Prior notification and planning will be much appreciated.   Any interested individuals are encouraged and invited to contact me to see the organ if they are ever going to be in the Detroit metropolitan area.   Scott F. Foppiano scottfop@aol.com (248) 541-4122, Ext. 40 at the church  
(back) Subject: Re: Richard Purvis From: Cliff Benham <cbenham@bellatlantic.net> Date: Thu, 13 Aug 1998 01:45:54 -0400   There are three recordings by Purvis on the HIFIRECORD label and (that I know of) one on WORD Records. All three HIFIRECORD releases were recorded in stereo according to the brochure in one of the albums, although I only have them in mono.

I would really like for all of this music to be available on CD, because as someone once said, "You can wait around for a long, long time, but you'll NEVER see the likes of this again."
