You mentioned Arabesque and Lied. Probably the most famous and endearing piece here is "Berceuse"-- Just get those hankies ready because the tears will flow!!   RandyT

I have a copy I purchased in the 1960s, published by H.W. Gray at $2.50 (those were the days). On the cover it says:   Marcel Dupre Sixteen Chorales (Le Tombeau de Titelouze) =46or Organ Based on Liturgical Hymns     It bears a 1942 copyright for S. Bornemann, and a 1950 copyright assigned to H.W. Gray. The last piece is a wonderful postlude.

No further damage. It was a very close call, however. The fire burned to within three feet of the instrument and the fire marshall believes that had it not been stopped, in another five minutes it would have burned through the roof, which then would have sent the blaze completely out of control, consuming the building.   The organ will be sealed while the building is repaired, then uncovered and thoroughly cleaned.   So we can be very thankful that a treasure of American organ building is safe.   Thanks to many for their concern.   Mark Brombaugh United Church on the Green New Haven, Connecticut USA Secretary, Organ Historical Society

Ollikkala" <71431.2534@compuserve.com> Date: Thu, 5 Mar 1998 09:52:02 -0500   -------- Forwarded Message --------   Subject: St. Mary's, New Haven Date: 04-Mar-98 at 21:05 From: Barbara Owen, INTERNET:owenbaruno.com     Dear Friends of Hook Organs, I have just been talking with Nick Thompson-Allen, who spent some time going over the Hook at St. Mary's this afternoon. The fire was arson, started in a bathroom in the basement during the morning mass, and it got up into the walls. Thanks to fast and aggressive work by firefighters, it was knocked down in time before the structure was seriously threatened, but the church is a mess from water, heat, and smoke, and it will be some time before it is repaired and reopened.   Thankfully, the organ suffered no serious damage. The fire went up the stairwell on the CC side of the organ and started to get under the gallery floor, which is a bit chopped up on that side. The firemen tried not to soak down anything that wasn't actually burning, but some water did get into the CC side pedal chest and pipes. Mostly, though, it is just smoke and some debris - nothing got hot enough to melt or char. Thompson-Allen is going to wrap the organ up to protect it while repair work on the church interior is going on (and give it time to dry out), and when that is finished they are going to thoroughly clean and repair it, and predict that it will be as good as new. But this is probably several months away, as they don't yet know the time schedule on the other repairs.   So the good news is that the organ sustained no serious damage, is in good hands, and will eventually be back in business! Hallelujah! Barbara.

Reminds me of years ago when a downtown hotel was having difficulty with an arsonist/prankster going into the restroom and setting off the sprinkler system with a lighter and then casually walking out while everyone on the first floor got drenched. They simply disconnected the restroom from the rest of the system and the next time it happened he casually walked across the lobby to leave, except that this time he was the only one soaked.
