I'm sort of re-living my teens through your heart and, well, like to hear about your REAL experiences with things I could only dream of back then.   Oh .. what ELSE did you see in the Wicks warehouse??? Organ-parts- hoarders want to know!! hehe   When and if you have the time, Kevin, maybe you could write-up a posting for us detailing your journey through the Wicks facility .. who you met, what you saw, what you thought, etc. I LOVE reading that sort of thing, and I'll bet I'm not alone!! Your postings are always well considered and well written. Thank You Lad.   And please write-up your trip to bring home your wonderful organ.   Thanky! :0) Ron Yost, Paso Robles, Calif.     At 10:14 7:24 PM 6/8/98 -0500, you wrote: >David Scribner wrote: >> Yes Kevin - WICKS will still make a TO if you want one!! > >I played the one in their aircraft division building.

While he wasn't exactly a composer, I'm sure he put a lot of time into his orchestration of BWV565. But I'm not sure when he died, so I could still be wrong.   \/\/\

And, unfortunately, the ones who are the least to appreciate the tiny nuances and differences between those sounds, generally end up being the ones who pay the most to hear it (collectively, of course).   If all of us organists were rich, don't you know that PO builders couldn't keep up the pace we'd set for them by contracting for the construction of PO after PO in every sanctuary and auditorium we could find.   One of my best friends recalls me saying (what was I thinking?) that if I ever won the lottery, I'd buy his church a new organ. I'm sure he'll hold me to it, if that ever occurs. Gee, I'd love to see a plaque that read: "The Moeller Moeller Organ".   \/\/\    
(back) Subject: Question on "The Vicar of Dibley" From: Vernon Moeller <vernonm@ccsi.com> Date: Tue, 09 Jun 1998 13:23:56 -0500   My wife and I really enjoy a Britcom called "The Vicar of Dibley." The pilot episode showed an elderly lady playing the organ whose console was behind the congregants near the narthex of the church. The music that came from it sounded genuine, but I was wondering:   1) Did they use music from that instrument for the soundtrack of the show?   and   2) Is "Dibley" filmed in an actual church, and if so, where is it?   Thanks to any who can help satisfy my curiosity.   \/\/\    
(back) Subject: Theatre Organ Top 10: What about Lowrey??? From: <TonyIn219@aol.com> Date: Tue, 9 Jun 1998 15:12:57 EDT   That list must have been rigged.   Surely my Golden Harp arpeggiator, the Brass and String Symphonizer, Multi- Channel Chorus, my automatic open chords and my walnut faux-semi-horseshoe cabinetry will be valued by future collectors in much the same way that bell- bottoms and platform shoes are now enjoying a fashion epiphany.   Lowrey took a social risk by cramming tons of futuristic convenience features into its console, and in the rush for technology, they callously omitted links to its glorious past -- like pipes.   But surely the Lowrey still ranked No. 11? Or No. 21? Or some number "just" off the published list?   If not, does this mean the Lowrey salesman lied to me when he told me organ was a great investment -- a beanie-baby craze just waiting to happen?   John Carrington Chesterton, Indiana Lowrey Investor

(back) Subject: Re: Question on "The Vicar of Dibley" From: Jenny Moon <bfus7@central.susx.ac.uk> Date: Tue, 9 Jun 1998 21:35:52 BST       Hello Vernon.   I also loved the Vicar of Dibley. Not only was it amazingly funny for its quotes and Dawn French etc, but the story lines are so life like. The idiotic thinking really does go on in the Church of England today.     I can't answer you first question I'm afraid. I'll have to leave that to someone else.   Question 2 however.   The show is filmed at St marys Church in a village called Turville, in Buckinghamshire. I read am article titled 'The real life vicar of Dibley'. It went into how the running of the church is effected by the filming and tourism, but nothing about the organ unfortunately. There is lots of information on the internet about the show too. If you don't have access I can find any info for you.     Hope this helps.   Jen.   On Tue, 09 Jun 1998 13:23:56 -0500 Vernon Moeller wrote:   > From: Vernon Moeller <vernonm@ccsi.com> > Date: Tue, 09 Jun 1998 13:23:56 -0500 > Subject: Question on "The Vicar of Dibley" > To: PipeChat <pipechat@pipechat.org> > > My wife and I really enjoy a Britcom called "The Vicar of Dibley."

I think the "how much piano" had gone on long enough & I believe that we should not put such requirements onto our students. It would be like them requiring me to take piano before learning cello - what does it have to do with the price of eggs in china? Take care!!!

This hardly seems to fit the description of a woman sitting at a console at the back of the church behind the congregation, so perhaps they brought in a console specially for the filming of the program.   John.

(back) Subject: (META) No headers Request From: <Shakehip@aol.com> Date: Tue, 9 Jun 1998 23:13:52 EDT   I don't know if this is for me to comment on, but I'd like to request at least that when possible folks be sure to include a subject with their postings... No headers appear sometimes by accident and are often incorporated into the long threads. The reason is, headers make it easy to participate in a high volume mailing list with the option of simply deleting threads not of interest. When I get a no-header, I am forced to open it because if I don't recognize the e-mail address, I have to make sure its not related to my business. So, out of courtesy if I'm not stepping out of line, I'd like to request everyone double check that they've included a subject line, and when replying to a no header to please add one. (Of coure, I'm not the listmaster, so I'm just posting this as a humble request.)   Thanks !   Ed :-)
