(back) Subject: Chinese pipe instrument From: Cheryl C Hart <info@copemanhart.co.uk> Date: Thu, 26 Feb 1998 12:30:50 GMT   Dear PipeChatters,   One of the few good things about Milton Keynes, (about 45 miles north of London [England] and 30 miles south of Irthlingborough) is the huge shopping mall and the interesting musicians who appear there from time to time, a few just busking but most more seriously entertaining people (and selling their recordings, of course).   Last Saturday, on my way back from an early morning trip to London Heathrow airport, I stopped off at MK - this is the new town developed in the 70s which placed concrete cows in surrounding fields (because the architects couldn't tell them from one real ones, presumably, or thought that those destined to live there wouldn't know the difference, and yes, the birth of MK was greeted with derision partly because of the concrete cows) - to do some big-store shopping, and at one end of the mall I watched a youthful dance group disporting themselves on a raised platform accompanied by some exceedingly loud but very jolly foot-tapping music. Having much to accomplish, I left them to it and trundled along to the other end of this long mall, and there stopped to listen to the haunting music of Rupert Parker playing his electric harp - it was beautiful (I prefer and adore the non-electric harp, but this had an appeal of its own). I went off to finish my shopping, and on the way back past Mr Parker I stopped to listen again and bought one of his solo harp CDs - too irresistible for words, and now I wish I had also bought one with his fantastic backing band, especially as this might well have been his one and only appearance in MK.   Wending my way back through the crowds towards the exit, I was halted in my tracks by a most fascinating sound, which had not been there when I passed that way earlier, and came upon a small and elderly-looking Chinese man playing a strange-looking very bulky mouth organ, made of bamboo pipes. This was Guo Yi, one of the Peking Brothers, playing his Sheng - and he really is not elderly: my first glance was too brief! The Sheng is a very ancient instrument and pre-dates the pipe organ, according to a the information board displayed (does this mean that Jubal, mentioned in the Old Testament [Genesis] as the father of those who play organs [and harps], fathered offspring who settled in China? Or did China exist before Jubal? Or was Jubal Chinese?) Unfortunately, I had parked in the nearby pay zone instead of the distant free zone, and my three-hour ticket was about to expire; as I didn't want to risk the expensive consequences, I could not hang about, otherwise I would probably have bought one of the CDs (I'm a sucker for such things!).   As usual, I left Milton Keynes feeling as if I'd attended a concert - the shopping trip itself was pretty fruitless, but thanks to the joy of the music, the talent of the musicians, and the knowledge gained, I was not disgruntled!     Cheryl     COPEMAN HART & COMPANY LTD Church Organ Builders IRTHLINGBOROUGH Northamptonshire ENGLAND NN9 5TZ   http://www.copemanhart.co.uk Tel +44 (0)1933 652600 Fax +44 (0)1933 652288     US CONSULTANCY: Copeman Hart - America 107 East Pasadena Road OAK RIDGE TN 37830-5112   Email Cpmnhartus@aol.com Tel 423 482 8600 Fax 423 482 8600     AUSTRALIAN CONSULTANCY: Copeman Hart - Australia 60 Memorial Avenue ST IVES NSW 2075   Email hamilton.stives@bigpond.com Tel 0414 477 352 or 02 9983 9775 Fax 02 9983 9709

What hasn't been used to "feed the 5,000 (termites)" will become part of a new instrument for Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in New Orleans (stoplist to follow at a later date)   Today, it's off to visit David Scribner (our beloved PIPECHAT-L List's mentor), then north for a couple more visits with other folks in Alabama. I hope to be home tomorrow night.   In reading the Mechanical Music Digest, I noted someone out there who is replicating rolls for AEolian players, as well as others. (I'm going to ask him about rolls for a church's Deagan "Bong-A-Tron"), and thought perhaps forwarrding the contact information might prove useful to anyone who may be involved in this kind of work.

He's playing at White River Presbyterian Church in Auburn, Washington, on Sunday, 1 March, at 3 p.m.   White River Pres has been serving their community for over 130 years. It's the oldest Presbyterian church west of the Mississippi river. They recently renovated their sanctuary, including expanding the organ. They had a Moller from the 1930s. Those pipes, plus some new pipes, plus what Rodgers calls "digital pipes," brings the instrument to roughly the equivalent of 90 ranks. It has a MIDI, too. With Jonas at the console, I'm sure we'll be in for a treat. ____________________________________ Die dulci fruere. Rich Wildhirt Boeing Site Operations Renton, Washington (425) 234-8051

This is a rehash of some of the old Disneyland and Wonderful World of Disney Shows that were shown on ABC in the early days-before color, even. The show was about the history of animation. A small segment featured Disney musical director and former theatre organist, Oliver Wallace, playing a Hammond organ which was encased in a Wurlitzer console shell. No, it was not an overdub. Wallace was accompanying a Koko the Clown short "Out of the Inkwell" created and illustrated my Max Fleicher. He did the Hammond proud. His expertise was easily discerned. I bet he was a spectacular silent film accompanist.   Bob Evans   Bob's Wurlitzer Loft Swansea, MA Home of "Rochelle"-RJ-12, Seven Rank, Residence Style, Wurlitzer Pipe Organ

Not that I dream of being able to play as well as she does; it just dawned on me that I've all along been too satisfied with dull and unimaginative playing. So, I've resolved now to listen to recordings, and make an effort to play with more "feeling"- even when practicing slow or in small sections. Thanks for this encouraging response! I don't think my teacher's aware of the effect that her playing had on me, though... but ;) this could be one way of dealing with a recalcitrant student, couldn't it?!!   Ten Yeen     --* I'd rather be a failure at something I love *-- than be a success at something I hate. -George Burns-

While the UMC did not tamper with these particular words, they tampered with enough of them IMHO. What I have never understood is why the UMC felt it necessary to include SPANISH hymns, and translations of some (notably Amazing Grace) into half a dozen Indian dialects, etc. etc. etc. No Indian or Spaniard worth his salt is going to spend $20 for a big fat hymnal that contains only a few hymns in their own language. If the UMC wanted to accomodate these folks with an entire hymnal of Spanish Hymns or Indian Hymns, that's another kettle of fish entirely. But to sprinkle them through a hymnal for English speaking people makes no sense whatever to me. And I get really irked at the revisions to be politically correct. As for myself, I have no problem with God being my FATHER and references to HIM and HIS. But then I'm not a militant feminist. I say if we're going to use someone's poetry, then let's use it as they wrote it. People who strain at such gnats are demonstrating their own insecurity.

OIRDC gets to me, too. Beautiful tune and text.   Another one for me is "My Song Is Love Unknown." I know that's got a few different tunes, but the one I love is in CPH's Lutheran Worship (#91). It's sung during Lent and the mixture of tune and text is perfect for amplifying the emotional and penitential candor of the season. Especially effective on Good Friday.   Just make sure it's followed up with "Lift High the Cross" on Easter morning.
