I haven't actually learned it, but I can think if Bach that's easier (Orgelbu"chlein/some P & F) and Bach that's harder (Trio Sonatas), at least I.M.H.O. But after all it IS Dupre'; do you actually think he would want it to be easy?? I've played enough of it to say it is fairly challenging.   Jonathan   _____________________________________________________________________ You don't need to buy Internet access to use free Internet e-mail.

(back) Subject: Re: Roanoke, VA: Walcker pipe organ for sale (X-post) From: <RMaryman@aol.com> Date: Sun, 26 Jul 1998 17:02:51 EDT   The Instrument in Question is a 'sister' organ to one built for a church in Salem VA, which I have tuned for them along wiht a friend from T&B.   These organs are well constructed, and if you are looking for a bright, articulate istrument, they will suit, particularly in a moderately reverberant room.   Although I won't swear to it, I think that one of my competitors from Waynesboro VA has done som tuning and minor adjustments to the Roanoke College instumnet, but in the 8 yerars I have workd on the other Walcker (in Salem), there were 2 service calls (apart from tuning visits) one for a leaky pallet and one for a loose setting on the pedal chest schwimmer-plate valve wire.   The pallets in these organs are constructed with a 'T' shaped (steel ?) metal with felt/leather facing) the action is all aluminum with brass rollers and the 2M/Ped couple mechanism in the console is a standard Laukhuff coupler rack.   Best Wishes,   Rick Maryman Staunton VA

He wrote that when he mentioned at social functions that he and his wife were (concert) organists, often the other person would say "Oh yes, my mother was an organist... played for years at her church... never had a lesson."   Peace, Bill Miller

In addition to the 25-note pedalboard, it had a row of rhythm stops located to the left of the bottom manual. I think it also had two 61-note keyboards, but my memory may be flawed. It could have been a spinet. But then, a spinet would never have 25-notes in the pedal, or would it? (Electronic Wurlitzer experts, jump in here.) The pastor advised me to never use the tremolo or the Vox Humana, but maybe he never heard the two used together. :-) The instrument is gone, replaced by an Allen digital in 1984.   Kurt :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: This space is for sale.

Tony and Lyn played a >number of duets.....Tony and Lyn were in perfect synchronization and >appeared to be having a great time together. The combination of their >immense talents made for some of the best music I've heard at The House >Jasper Built......   Sorry about the lateness of these comments, but I've been more than busy lately looking after a classical organist house guest, Philippe Beullens of Mechelen Cathedral in Belgium, with Capri Theatre volunteer duties and the very great pleasure of meeting and hearing John's fellow Hoosier Ken Double on our world renowned (his words) 4/29 Capri theatre organ here in Adelaide.   Ken is much better known in Australia as the compere of many an ATOS concert than as an organist, but he proved himself yesterday to be worthy of being in the company of the best exponents of that most difficult art. For the benefit of those who may think otherwise - try playing an entire concert of two hours with myriad tasteful changes of registration, absolutely beautiful harmonies, and countermelodies with just a list of items on the music rack!   Tony and Lyn go way back to the time when Lyn celebrated his 21st birthday on the stage of the Dendy Theatre in Melbourne's suburban Brighton during one of his several extended seasons as the resident organist. Those of us who were privileged then (and now) to know them as friends have long been aware that each had an indelible influence on the other.   Tony was already a world class classical pianist, but he is also known throughout this country as the theatre organist whose concerts (often with his friends John Atwell and Chris McPhee as co-artists on both piano and organ) invariably cause the HOUSE FULL sign to posted.   Lyn can fairly be said to have been the pioneer who introduced the American style (Australia had its own unique artists) to this country. His pyrotechnic displays on the keyboards and pedals forever changed our appreciation of all that is best in theatre organ music. His feeling that Australia (and particularly Melbourne) is a second home has been demonstrated many times in his support for Australian artists appearing on the American concert circuit.   There are MANY of us who look forward very much to hearing Lyn and Tony together in concert on the great Wurlitzer 4/36 in the Regent Theatre in Melbourne. When that will be, I do not know, but I'd be only one of those who will make the long interstate journey from Adelaide to be there. A gorgeous picture palace, a legendary organ, and two of the finest musicians anywhere. It'd be worth flying from the United States to be there!   Cheers,   Brian Pearson President, Australia Felix chapter, ATOS. Adelaide, South Australia.
