The swell organ is just as attractive as the great organ in front of it. If there were glass swell shades, you would be able to see about 90% of the organ! Something to look at when the sermon gets boring.   For now,   Kevin C. kevin1@alaweb.com

However, it is REALLY fun. I'll have to try some of this on the pipe organ. Maybe it would make a good funny prelude piece for the next big piano recital at church (I always play the organ there to add a little extra 'something' to that hour-long boring thing.)   Anyway,   Kevin C. kevin1@alaweb.com

Not only did they have a top-notch organist, but Vernon DeTar was consultant.   3M/59R(I think)/electric slider chests   Bill Miller

The announcement of the page came to a mailing list discussing the subject of "bad music", that some music composed for church use is really not good. The author of the page posted the URL in the context of that thread.   And yes.... it shows one direction a person can take to improvise on a verse of a hymn, perhaps, or to dress a hymn up enough to be an offertory, perhaps.   And Kevin? If played well, the piano is a beautiful instrument. Ya just gotta know what to listen for.   --Shirley

It is a little newer. I'll send the IOF catalogue entry if you want.   Kevin C. kevin1@alaweb.com
