(back) Subject: Organ used in Midnight in the Garden of God and Evil From: Morton Belcher III <flcg1018@fujens.fju.edu.tw> Date: Mon, 16 Mar 1998 23:29:42 +0800 (TAIST)   In the movie, Midnight in the Garden of God and Evil, the master of the house   sat down to play an organ to drown out some noise caused by some neighbors...   I'm wondering what organ was actually used in the movie... was it an   organ or an actual pipe organ? In the movie, as the master sits down to   the console to play (which seemed to be a AGO 32 pedal board 2 man and   pedal standard console with Austin like stop tongues as opposed to   draw knobs), a curtain in his house rose up, revealing some pipes as well   as an enclosed division....   Any information about the organ used in this part of the movie would be   greatly appreciated... feel free to e-mail me directly at   flcg1018@fujens.fju.edu.tw     Best wishes to all...     Morton Belcher

To assert that adding percussions is the 'wrong direction' is rather provincial.   I DO agree that the addition of an entire TO toy counter is NOT appropriate for a church, but some tuned percussions are quite common in church settings, and some non-tuned percussions could be useful, too. The addition of a single triangle, provided of course, that it is not overused, could add much accent to some pieces.     Regards,   Bob

(back) Subject: Music and a WurliTzer ! ( x-posted ) From: Fred@ecr.net Date: 16 Mar 1998 15:25:22 EDT   3/16   Dear List Members,       I'm looking for information on two Music/Organ subjects.     1.} Do any of you have a theater organ arrangement of "BABY FACE" Arranged for organ by "Henry B. Murtagh? "     2.} Does any one have more information concerning the FINAL fate of two WurliTzer organs from Lancaster, Ohio;   Opus 1489 - Style B SP, last location Hamilton Res, Zanesville, Ohio ?   And Opus 1633 from the "LYRIC Theatre" in Lancaster.   I remember as a kid a console being smashed by a wrecking ball that was in the Palace Theater in Lancaster, does any one hace info on what that organ was ? This theater was up the street and across from the Lyric I remember. I don't think that the "LYRIC" I know was the one which had the WurliTzer. Could be wrong.   If anyone has ANY info, I'll be greatfull for the insight.   ( Dr. ) Fred Lewis Organist/Associate Choral-Handebell Director St. John's Lutheran; New Washington, Ohio   Home address: 61 Zent Avenue Home phone:1-740-694-0046 Fredericktown, Ohio Fax = : the same 43019-1031     fred@www.ecr.net

I certainly answer with "we have four organs in Greenville" when referring to the pipe organ - my idea of a real organ, so everybody has different opinions (I remember someone saying a while back: "Opinions are like fingers...everyone has ten.")   Just had to post that...no reason.   Kevin C. mailto:kevin1@alaweb.com

You mentioned a flute stop with three sides, and Ernest Skinner did use Triangular Flutes in many of his organs during the 20's and 30's. I have played several, and they are lovely, but not significantly different from their four-sided relatives. basically it is a traversflute of wood. hope our english translations are not getting you into trouble. I enjoy your posts very much. You write very, very well!   bruce cornely o o o __________ o o o ago (dean) ohs o o __________ o o
