(back) Subject: New Organ for All Saints From: Bruce Behnke <behnke@isat.com> Date: Tue, 24 Feb 98 21:33:03 -0000   On Sunday, February 22, the powers that be at All Saints Episcopal Church, Las Vegas, Nevada signed a contract for a two manual and pedal mechanical action organ to be build and installed by Steven Cook of Edmonds, Washington. Steve has worked with Brombaugh and Fritts and will build everything except the blower.   Opus 7 will stand 12 feet 4 inches tall and ten feet wide, with three equal and symmetrical flats. Each flat will have 7 pipes from the Principal 8 and 4 under a decorative arch. They will be positioned over a slightly narrower pedestal. Manuals will be 56 notes and the pedal will be 30 notes with an ago pedalboard. Behind and above the great chest will be an enclosed swell division. The stoplist includes: Principals 8, 4, 2 and Mixture II plus flutes 8 and 4 and a soft reed at 8. The swell has Flutes 8, 4, 2, 2-2/3 and 1-3/5 (TC) Plus a string and celeste. Pedal consists of flutes 16 and 8 Principal 4 with the Great reed at 16 and 8. Usual couplers, tremulant, keyboard of boxwood naturals and ebony accidentals with Kellner temperament. Final nomenclature has not been decided because Steve is hoping to use an American set of names rather than German or Dutch because he feels he is building an American instrument.   The people in the church are absolutely thrilled. The local AGO chapter is all abuzz. Installation is projected to be within a year. As soon as I get a real drawing and the final stop list I am hoping to start a web page with all that info so that I can keep everyone posted.   Bruce

It would be interesting to hear if any other churches are planning such installations.   Bruce Behnke wrote:   > On Sunday, February 22, the powers that be at All Saints Episcopal > Church, Las Vegas, Nevada signed a contract for a two manual and pedal > mechanical action organ to be build and installed by Steven Cook of > Edmonds, Washington.

By all means, please bring back your fine introductions to the organ! This is one way to make contact with the people (of all ages) in the pew!   Thanks to Shirley for re-awakening you!   Pat Maimone     _____________________________________________________________________ You don't need to buy Internet access to use free Internet e-mail.
