You will be happt to know that one of this country's great Kimball lovers is none other than Michael Barrone of Pidedreams fame. He beat me out of an old Kimball brochure at a silent auction at OHS convention several years ago by paying an ungodly price for it. You're also in the company of many little railroad people (little railroads!! that is). If you're not busy some afternoon, you might go through the archives from early Fall 97; there was a long discussion re railroad and organ crossovers. I think it was on both pipechat and pipeorg-l, but it was very interesting; we then spread into lighthouses and foghorns!!! Look forward to seeing you on the list. Happy yakking!   bruce cornely o o o __________ o o o ago (dean) ohs o o __________ o o

An Estey pipe organ was installed at First Presbyterian in Bradford,PA around 1917 - it is currently going through its 2nd rebuild. Unfortunately the church records of this instrument are non-existent. I would like to update the history and if possible find the original specifications. Please respond privately via e-mail to Jsue287518@aol.com Thank you - Mac  
(back) Subject: Introduction From: "Judy A. Ollikkala" <71431.2534@compuserve.com> Date: Sat, 21 Mar 1998 12:06:36 -0500   There is one wonderful Kimball 4 manual 1933 Opus 7119 with 109 ranks unaltered concert pipe organ here in Worcester Massachusetts at the Municipal War Memorial Auditorium in Lincoln Square, now called the AUD. It is functional and played for graduations, but need a lot of chest restoration and repair work. The city fathers are talking about converting this great historical building into a juvenile courthouse. They have extended a lease with an entertainment company for 18 months while they make up their minds. This company puts on mostly rock shows, and also runs the Centrum, a large sports and entertainment complex downtown. Interestingly enough, the venue for classical concerts, Mechanics Hall, the Great Hall, with its 1864 4 manual Hook tracker, Opus 334 with 64 ranks, restored, is temporarily closed for repairs to cracked stress beams overhead, so several large concerts have been rerouted to the AUD. This included the Berlin Symphony and the BBC Symphony Orchestra, both of which I attended. Aside from the creaky chairs and risers in the AUD, the sounds of both orchestras was magnificent, with more people attending than could fit into Mechanics Hall, itself a grand space but smaller. This is a big plus factor for those who want to keep the AUD and its Kimball intact. If you wish to respond to me and the list with your concerns about the Kimball, I will compile them and present them to the "powers that be" as a testimony to the organ's preservation.

I would like to >update the history and if possible find the original specifications.   I'm afraid I don't know of the whereabouts of the Estey records, although someone who might is Organ Historical Society archivist Dr. Stephen L. Pinel whose e-mail address is <spinel@worldnet.att.net>   I am a little puzzled by what you say, since I have an Estey opus list which lists instruments the firm built, and have searched this from 1915 to 1922 without success. There is a listing for First Methodist Episcopal Church, Bradford, Pa., a 3-manual of 1917, Op. 1570, with a new console in 1927. I cannot find anything, however, about First Presbyterian Church. Do you know if your church is the instrument's original home? Alternatively, it is possible Estey got the name of the church wrong on the opus list -- it wouldn't be the first time!   Regards,   John.

There may be an official records of the Company in Brattleboro Vermont, perhaps at the Brattleboro Museum in the old Railroad Station which has much Estey information and memorabilia.  
(back) Subject: Brahms Requiem From: Shirley <pnst@itw.com> Date: Sat, 21 Mar 1998 13:34:18   My apologies for this being offtopic, but I wanted to share this with you.   Tomorrow (Sunday, the 22nd) at 7:30 PM, Music at Abington will present the 70-voice Oratorio Choir and the 60-piece Abington Symphony Orchestra in the Brahms "German Requiem" (sung in English), conducted by Michael Kemp.   I just came home from the final dress, and it's absolutely amazing. The orchestra's sound is full and rich, and the choir members are listening to each other. The ensemble is *gorgeous*! This work is one of the most inspiring Requiems I've sung in recent years (perhaps second only to the Verdi, IMO).   If any of you find yourself in the neighborhood at the time of this program, do stop by. It will be mobbed, as all Music at Abington events are since Michael took over the program, so I suggest early seating.   As some of you know, if I don't feel a program is worth publicizing, I don't. This one however is one not to be missed.   The church is located at 1082 Old York Road, Abington, PA.   And yes, it is *not* too late to apply for the half-time organist position by sending your resume to Abington Presbyterian Church at the above address. It's an exciting place to be.   --Shirley

(back) Subject: Re: Introduction From: Mac Hayes <mach37@ptw.com> Date: Sat, 21 Mar 1998 15:58:36 -0800   I heard an amazing performance by Stan Kann last night, on an organ I never would have thought capable of "romantic" sounds. Stan played a 45 minute program of show tunes and old favorites for the residents of a retirement home, Kingsley Manor, in Hollywood, CA, on their chapel organ, a Reuter 2-manual 5-rank unit plus celeste and 3-rank mixture.   The day before, as indentured apprentice to Williamson-Warne & Assoc., I had assisted in the tuning by Michael Williamson, and noted that the tremulant was quite feeble--fast and very shallow-- Michael said that he, and others, had tried to perk it up, but this was as good as it could be gotten.   The organ specs are:   Diapason Gedeckt Salicional Celeste Mixture III Trumpet Oboe   My first thoughts were that Stan, given the limitations of this instrument, would stick to a mostly liturgical repertoire, but not so. At various times I thought I was actually hearing tibias and kinuras. There was even a snare-drum effect. The final piece, a hymn request, really amazed me and was a nicely effective finale; I groaned (to myself) when I heard the request for "In the Garden." But Stan transformed it into a concert piece with wonderfully varied solo voices and far more expression than could be expected from such meager resources.     -- Mac Hayes mach37@ptw.com Time is what keeps everything from happening at once.      
(back) Subject: Re: Introduction From: Dan Wilkinson <dandub@gte.net> Date: Sat, 21 Mar 1998 16:22:46 -0800   Yes Oh Yes....I wish I had been there....Stan is AMAZING! He came to an organ club meeting we have every month. The large theatre organ (a 3 manual -- and yes it is an Allen 317) was out due to the concert where Lyn Larsen, Carlo Curley, and Tom Hazelton played three organs at the San Gabriel Civic Auditorium. Stan played for nearly 2 hours on a 2 manual Allen MDS 212 Theatre organ.......It was wonderful.   Without a doubt, Stan is a most inventive and talented organist!   At 03:58 PM 3/21/98 -0800, you wrote: >I heard an amazing performance by Stan Kann last night, on an organ I >never would have thought capable of "romantic" sounds.

(back) Subject: Re: Introduction From: MW ORGLBAU <MWORGLBAU@aol.com> Date: Sat, 21 Mar 1998 23:02:07 EST   Dear Mac & List,   "Stan played a 45 minute program of show tunes and old favourites for the residents of a retirement home, Kingsley Manor, in Hollywood, CA, on their chapel organ, a Reuter 2-manual 5-rank unit plus celeste and 3-rank mixture."   Well Close :-) The organ is actually a Reuter from the 30's/40's that is electro-mechanical (quite unusual), and that had the Trumpet and Mixture added by Abbott & Sieker (a local Los Angeles builder) in 1963 (which was their second project after they went into business).   "The organ specs are:   Diapason Gedeckt Salicional Celeste Mixture III Trumpet Oboe"   Your left off the Dulciana. So one more rank than listed above.   "I noted that the tremulant was quite feeble--fast and very shallow-- Michael said that he, and others, had tried to perk it up, but this was as good as it could be gotten."   Well, now Mac has now put me on the spot, in public no less! I think an explanation is in order. The tremulant for this organ (which by the way affects the entire instrument; only one reservoir for the entire organ) is vastly undersized for this instrument. People over the years have tried a variety of different methods to get it to operate correctly. It now has the most unusual "hanging" spring arrangement (one end attached to the top of tremulant, and the other to the bottom of the chest above it). It works, but gives the effect of a "bleeing nanny goat". The best thing would be to install a new, larger unit. At this point other, more important items (such as re- leathering the expression motor) need to be done first. One can hope that one day it will be done.   My thoughts also were that Stan Kann gave a splended performance. He utilized the resources of the instrument well, really giving me the chance to hear the organ from somewhere other than the bench or the chamber. I really enjoyed his harmonizations, especially on "In the garden"; and all for memory, no less!     Michael R. Williamson Williamson-Warne & Associates Hollywood Ca.
