(back) Subject: Wurlitzer Roller-Skating Farewell Party/Chicago From: TonyIn219 <TonyIn219@aol.com> Date: Thu, 12 Mar 1998 11:24:42 EST   Just a note to let everyone know my sister, her two kids, and my two best friends (and myself) attended the farewell for the North Avenue Rollerway.   WHAT A HUGE RINK!!!!   It was great fun, and considering the size of the crowd, I was surprised more people weren't skating.   Going to a skating rink to listen to a pipe organ and not skate is a bit like getting invited to the a private residence for dinner and live theatre pipe organ music and not eating their food.   Next time there's a skate, I'd support everyone in donning skates and getting out there and SKATING!!! Personally, I hadn't skated in 13 years, and my partner Teri hadn't skated in decades. Therefore, when the pairs skate (one skater forward, the other backwards) happened, we were the couple that skated about 1 mile per hour, and twice skated into the wall and once nearly slammed into the swell shades.   I got some great video tape of the event, with the rest of the tape being devoted to great shots of Northwest Indiana paralyzed by snow, fallen trees, power lines down, a deserted I-94 with jackknifed semis as far as the eye can see, my ice-encrusted house, some cold-looking deer, and snow, snow, snow!!!   Today (Thursday) is the first day I made it to my Chicago office!!!   I was playing my Lowrey when the power went out Monday, and I'm convinced that the residual heat from the transformers and transistors kept the house warm for hours.   John Carrington Tonyin219@aol.com Chesterton, Indiana Have you hugged your organ today?

Good Shepherd is one of my favorite buildings, especially because it is almost a double for the church housing the Nine Taylors in Dorothy Sayers' Book.

Average instruments -- not horrid, but not outstanding, either. The Holtkamp has a third manual for Cornet that's permanently "on." Both organ and choir are in a "side transept-like" balcony. There's a charming little Noack of three stops (8 4 2, pedal permanently coupled with no independent voices) in the chapel.   The Casavant, IMHO, is the victim of someone wanting a mechanical-action organ with an attached console in a room not well suited to the arrangement. It's a beautiful space to look at but a very dry acoustic.   John Speller asked about the Bigelow tracker in Saint Mary's College chapel. Unfortunately, I never did get the chance to hear or play that instrument. I called several times, leaving messages in a variety of voice mailboxes, and never managed to connect with someone who could or would help. From what I've been told it's an example of his "either/or" 1-division-available-on-2-manuals instruments. I've seen photographs, too, and it does look like a lovely instrument. Many is the time I was driving past the campus, thinking that I should just drive up and see if the chapel was open and at least have a look, if not a listen as well. Never did! Maybe on a return visit....   Ken Sybesma

Anyone in Raleigh awake??   (gasp) Please don't confuse Raleigh with Durham! They share an airport, and that's about all. : )   There's a 2-manual, 18-stop, 24-rank Andover in Jones Chapel at Meredith College, and a 3-manual electric action something-or-other that's in sad shape in Jones Auditorium. The Andover does have a very nice sound, although the Swell reeds are not as "orchestral" sounding as the names imply. There is (gasp!) no celeste on the instrument, by the way, and the ensemble reminds me of 19th Century America, albeit with an obviously 20th Century accent.   The key action isn't among my favorites -- the tenor range of the Great, as I recall, is difficult to play evenly in fast-running, scalar passages, whether coupled or played alone.   An interesting bit of trivia is the facade: the left-most and right-most two pipes are from the 16' Bourdon, a stop shared between the Great and Pedal. The remainder of the facade is from Principal pipes. They do a very good job of nearly hiding this fact; the give aways are the dramatic difference in the cut-ups of the Bourdon, which are rather higher, and a very slight difference in the appearance of the pipe metal. But you have to sit for a while and stare at the facade during a lengthy and boring passage played by a lengthy and boring organist if you don't know about this feature before you notice the difference.   They utilized mechanical stop action with several double-draws (the two mixtures, the cornet) and two stops are shared between Great and Pedal: the above-mentioned Bourdon and the 8' Trumpet. Couplers are hitch-down pedals, as is the tremolo (not quite as "present" as I like, but then again, not so severe as to be nervous). There's a single "composition pedal," of sorts: it's a general cancel that pulls in every knob. Perhaps there wasn't enough funds for a knob-activated coupling system, as it's sometimes a bit of a challenge to operate four toe-levers in quick succession.   The 3-manual Kleuker is in Chapel Hill (Chapel of the Cross), with a 3-manual Sipe across the street. The Sipe has the identical Swell division as the Kleuker, and not coincidentally. The organist at the time the Sipe was built thought the Kleuker Swell was just...well, swell!   Ken Sybesma

The organist at the time the Sipe > was built thought the Kleuker Swell was just...well, swell!   Points of clarity: the Sipe is in the Presbyterian church, and has a swell division with an identical stoplist. The two instruments do not share a single division between them. : )   Ken Sybesma        
(back) Subject: Re: Raleigh organs From: cremona84000@webtv.net (bruce cornely) Date: Thu, 12 Mar 1998 16:05:38 -0500   Ah! Thanks for the correction on the Meredith College Andover (which I liked very much -- go figure!). I especially liked the tidbit about the two Bourdon pipes in the facade. This reminds me of the Wilhelm 2m at St Paul's Cathedral in Burlington VT (whimper... snoooooooow uh, sorry) which had a very interesting facade nuance. The facade has 8 flats: one 8' section with 5 pipes each on either side, with two "identical" three flat sections (upper and lower) in the center -- the pipes are arranged in "A" formation in the center flats, and the outer flats are approximately the same length pipes arranged with the tallest pipes away from the center. The upper and lower flats appear alike, but something about it is bothersome until you concentrate and realize that the lower central flats have unequal length pipes with their "mirrors", while the pipes in the upper flats are equal with their "mirrors". It is very, very interesting, and the organ was wonderful, especially since you could play and at the same time enjoy a panoramic view of the Adirondacks through a huge floor to ceiling window. Stoplist is: Great: Bourdon 16 Prinzipal 8 Hohlfloete 8 Oktav 4 Spitzfloete 4 Nazard 2 2/3 Superoktave 2 Terz 1 3/5 Mixtur IV-V 1 1/3 Trompet 8 Clairon 4   Swell: Gedackt 8 Prinzipal 4 Rohrfloete 4 Gemshorn 2 Larigot 1 1/3 Scharf III 1 Krummhorn 8 Tremulant   Pedal: Subbass 16 Prinzipal 8 Oktave 4 Rauschpfeife III 2 Fagott 16 Trompet 8   Couplers: Sw/Gr, Gr/Pd, Sw/Pd Mechanical key and stop action   (does have an AGO pedalboard --- well, nobody's perfect!!) ;-)   bruce cornely o o o __________ o o o ago (dean) ohs o o __________ o o

I found it at Olsson's, our local book/record chain, shortly before Christmas. It got quite a boost after the video ran during the Christmas-time "begging season" on PBS. The label is "Valley Entertainment" and the number is FOOF 15020-2. The full title is "Faith of Our Fathers: Classic Religious Anthems of Ireland." If you have access to the web, you might try the Tower Records site. Otherwise, you might try calling Olsson's at 202/785-2662 and they could probably ship you a copy.   Dudel  
(back) Subject: Re: Memphis? From: SCoonrod <SCoonrod@aol.com> Date: Thu, 12 Mar 1998 23:13:11 EST   My very favorite organ place in Memphis is St. Mary's Cathedral (Episcopal)   The Acoustics are about as good as it can get other than Grace Cathedral or St. John's NYC. The organ is a 50's or early 60's Schantz that fairly sparkles. It has some wonderful chorus reeds and the Choir and Echo (well located high in the ceiling) both contain a section of stops retained from the previous Kilgen. Some truly luscious orchestral strings back up their somewhere. It was renovated recently and is in great shape. The service is nice, as well, just a good solid Episcopal Liturgy with nothing fancy.   Then there is the 70-some odd rank Aeolian Skinner at Calvary, the Bedient C.C. reproduction at Idlewild Pres, where they threw out what was left of a sizable 20's E.M. Skinner. I have played both, and I must say that the Skinner/Moller was more successful, although it certianly needed a rebuilding that would get rid of the thin 1957 Moller Great! I can still hear the French and English Horn stops, the Trombone, and the 1949 A-S Swell (revoiced) reeds. I wish I could have purchased that old organ....Does anyone know what happened to it?   The new Reuter at St. John's comes off well, too.   R.
