No-one knew, because the secondo part was not there (the highest C available held down while the player goes to sleep).   -Stephen

People are bound to notice that they can't hear the organ, and will probably get quiet just to see if you are really playing (heh heh). You could also draw stops on one manual and play on the other without stops, sot hat when they get quiet you will be able to show them you are playing (thus possibly saving your job <g>.

(back) Subject: PASADENA ORGAN From: chris_wichers@americantours.com Date: Wed, 04 Feb 98 19:39:36 PST   Does anyone know the history of the organ in the Pasadena (CA) Civic Auditorium? It appears to be a five manual Moeller in TO horeshoe design. I understand that a benefactor with the last name of Nethercutt donated it?

At any rate, I simply gradually increased the volume (which caused the ladies to increase THEIRS) until I reached a crescendo and then stopped playing for a LONG rest. The congregation was treated to "...I EAT MINE WITH MUSTARD..." Needless to say, the offenders were surprisingly quiet for several Sundays...       Regards,   Bob

Don't know who installed it.   Regards,   Bob

(back) Subject: Re: PASADENA ORGAN From: floww@webtv.net (Richard Wolf) Date: Wed, 4 Feb 1998 22:19:39 -0600   The OHS 1998 catalogue has a CD by Lew Williams playing that organ. The notes state that the organ is the former Reginald Foort touring organ. It is a 5/28 Moller completely refurbished.   Dick

(back) Subject: Mom From: usd465@horizon.hit.net (Frank Johnson) Date: Wed, 4 Feb 1998 23:04:27 -0600   I just wanted to report the death of my mother at age 91. She was organist at the Congregational Church in Kiowa, Kansas for 29 and 1/2 years. She then played for the Christian Science Church in Hutchinson, KS for 5 or 6 years. She had a degree in Organ and Piano Performance from Bethany College in Lindsborg, Kansas. She was a very fine organist and played for silent movies for the last few years that they existed. She played at the Strand Theater in Salina, Ks. I think the organ is in Wichita now and I'd love to have a picture of it. Just needed to give this tribute to her.   Frank Johnson   Frank R.
