(back) Subject: The chicken and the egg and Lemare From: PHarri5833@aol.com Date: Sun, 15 Feb 1998 14:33:48 EST   Being close to St.Valentines day, a special service was held at Emmanuel, Holcombe this afternoon inviting couples to renew their marriage vows and to celebrate their marriage. (My wife declined to attend as she claims to learn from her mistakes, not repeat them! -:)).   Quite by chance (hmm!) I chose to use Edwin H. Lemare's Andantino in D flat as a pre-service voluntary but afterwards had an awful time convincing people that I had not sunk to playing popular songs as voluntaries!   The piece was appreciated, whatever people believed it to be and now, having started this concept in the church, I'm looking to carry it forward but would appreciate suggestions for pieces that genuinely began as organ music but later became popular songs!     Peter Harrison Emmanuel Church, Holcombe, Ramsbottom, GB  
(back) Subject: From: rnickel@itol.com Date: Sun, 15 Feb 1998 17:58:45 -0600 (CST)   I've lost the email address for Dave Wordell from Green Bay, WI. Anyone have it? He's an Eminent organ dealer.   Please respond privately. Thanks.   Bob Nickel      
(back) Subject: Re: Hello Everyone! From: RMaryman@aol.com Date: Sun, 15 Feb 1998 20:04:16 EST   Maybe is said that Bob Lent owned the thing 'cause he used to do some organ work in the Philly Area under 'United States Pipe Organ Co'. and later as R G Lent, Inc. Mr L resides now near Waynesboro, VA and has (or had) a bunch of wurli stuff in his basement.   cheers RM

Its called "The Little Organ Book" (with a really big organ drawing on the front). Its excellent for getting beginners (of course, those that can play the piano) on those pedals and sightreading fast.   For now,   Kevin C. kevin1@alaweb.com  
(back) Subject: Organ Voluntaries for the Sunday before Lent From: Ken <mewzishn@spec.net> Date: Sun, 15 Feb 1998 21:49:20 +0000   Posted this to the Anglican list, thought I might cross-post it here, too:   I was trying to think of organ voluntaries appropriate to this particular day, when Alleluia is given a last bit of airing-out before "burial" until the Great Vigil. One that comes to mind is "Alleluyas" by   Simon Preston. Any other suggestions or ideas or thoughts?   Ken Sybesma        
(back) Subject: Theater Albums From: usd465@horizon.hit.net (Frank Johnson) Date: Sun, 15 Feb 1998 22:38:42 -0600   I was going throught my old 33.3 albums this evening looking for something and came across two great old one. Is anyone familiar with an album called "Introducing the Fantastic RAYMOND SHELLEY?" Raymond was the house organist for the Miller Theater and it's 11 rank, Wurlitzer but the album was done on the Detroit Fox organ. The other album is "KEN WRIGHT" at the four manual Kilgen Pipe Organ. This organ was installed in the studios of WKY radio and it was the first live theater organ I ever heard. That was in the 1950's sometime. The organ is in an auditorium in Oklahoma City now and although it was restored many years ago, I understand that it has been given more life. Apparently, as I understand it, they are remodeling the auditorium and had plans to remove the organ but due to the efforts of some organ buffs, it will be kept playable once again. If anyone can correct or enlarge on this information please feel free to do so.   Frank Johnson   Frank R.
