As a matter of facts, it will force me to unsubscribe in case this non-organic tendency will continue.I can concfirm you that no Flemish organist or organ lover is interested in this nonsens about being gay or straight. So I say with other listners: STOP IT! Vincent Lef=E8vre, Bruges, Belgium

He was total quality and then to move to the plastic music of Roger Williams playing Autumn Leaves for an offerty at CC? Eveyone said they made him an offer he couldn't refuse--MONEY did it. So now, once again, I suspect that the Fox ties to Rodgers, to the organ at CC, to the inherited Riverside position, all relates to money. Don't you think that Rodgers has made him a offer he couldn't refuse just to promise to mention their name only 10 times per year--a type of celebrity endorsement. "You're so well known and respected, just visit a few of our potential clients, play a few things for them, and smile a lot." Your check for XXX will be in the mail and you can go buy that lovely new . . . you've always been wanting. Fox moved back and forth between pipe and electronic and knew the difference, but oh the money must be good. Even the resident organist at the God Box across from Riverside (Bob MacDonald now at First Pres in Fort Worth) did a stint at Radio City coming up out of the wall with parting fringed curtains for each performance. I was aghast knowing him to be such a classical organist. He saw it as good money and high camp to do it for awhile. Of course, much of this is hearsay and not from original sources, but I thought I'd just mention it as a possibility anyway. Would I, if I were famous, just pose on a 5-manual electronic Rodgers and pretend to be playing for the sake of a print ad for maybe $10,000 even though I played regularly only on a massive pipe organ? Yes, I would prostitute myself in a flash. I can't believe I just said that. I am moraless. It's the summer heat getting to me . . . Re . . . Robert

The difference is that when I am famous and raking in all kinds-o-dough, it isn't necessary to do that.

(back) Subject: Jonas Nordwall New CD ( X Post) From: kwkeller@juno.com (KARL W KELLER) Date: Mon, 6 Jul 1998 20:57:22 -0400   Hi to all,   I just received a new CD called "In A Persian Market" which was recorded on the 4/33 Wurlitzer TO at the Berkeley Community Theatre. It is 72 minutes of really great music played by Jonas Nordwall who is equally at home playing any organ in the world. On this CD you will find some wonderful transcriptions and other fare. As follows: Overture to "Orpheus in the Underworld" 11:02 "In A Persian Market: 7:11 "Non Nobis Dominum" 6:10 (see note below) "Danse Macabre" 8:07 Medley from "Carousel" 18:19 includes "Carousel Waltz", If I Loved You", "June Is Busting Out All Over", and "You'll Never Walk Alone" "Mediation" from Thais 5:53 "Danse Boheme" from Carmen 4:14 "Finlandia" 10:57   One question which I hope someone can answer. The selection "Non Nobis Dominum" composer Peter Doyle - what is the English translation? Any info on the composer? I have never hear this work and never heard of the composer. This is a very, very beautiful piece of music and I am grateful that Jonas recorded it.   Regards to all,   Karl Musica est Dei donum optimi   _____________________________________________________________________ You don't need to buy Internet access to use free Internet e-mail.

(back) Subject: Nordwall CD ?????? From: kwkeller@juno.com (KARL W KELLER) Date: Mon, 6 Jul 1998 23:47:17 -0400   My post about Jonas Nordwall's new CD is bringing a lot of requests for information on how to order it. The CD was produced by the Nor-Cal chapter of ATOS. It was sent to me as a gift from a friend who is attended the ATOS convention.   If anyone has information on how this CD can be ordered please post the information.   Also thanks to all who provided information on "Non Nobis Dominum". I have played this selection at least 7 or 8 time today. Very beautiful.   Karl   Musica est Dei donum optimi       _____________________________________________________________________ You don't need to buy Internet access to use free Internet e-mail.

(back) Subject: Re: Crystal Cathedral From: <MWORGLBAU@aol.com> Date: Tue, 7 Jul 1998 03:34:19 EDT   Dear Bruce and list,   "Fred Swann hawking Rodgers!!!!!   Ain't buyin' no more of his CD's"   I saw the comment originally posted by Mac Hayes, and found a lot of things certainly interesting.   Regarding Fred Swann and his association with electronic instrument, this goes back many, many years. My partner has an LP, I'm guessing from the 1960's, featuring Fred playing and promoting Baldwin. On the back of the album cover is a picture of Fred sans wig.   Not only have I run across Fred and his association with Rodgers, but a number of colleagues have commented something like "The Rodger's dealer, and Fred were at St. Celotex where I thought I had an organ job sold. They walk in, Fred is introduced and plays something for them or the Rodgers dealer gets the organ committee to come over to one of their newer installations and Fred plays. It is certainly difficult to sell something when the organist from the CC, who people have seen and have heard before on TV is telling that that this radio is just what they need, and its the best thing since sliced bread. Tell me, how do you compete with this?".   One of the interesting points that was mentioned and no one answered, who is Chrostopher Pardini? I'd be interested to know.     Michael R Williamson Hollywood Ca.
