(back) Subject: Re: Sprinkler Systems - Late Cross Post From: PipeLuvr <PipeLuvr@aol.com> Date: Fri, 15 May 1998 09:11:12 EDT   Brandon and Pipe Chat list:   A while back, I posted the following on Piporg-L and from private responses it has been helpful. I hope that you and the Pipechat Gang may find it of use as well.   As a Fire Chief and an organ lover I have struggled with the same issues, i.e., how to protect without that very protection damaging the organ. After working at length with our fire protection engineers, I have come to the conclusion that any project I am acquainted with will have what is known as a "PreAction" Fire Sprinkler System. In this system all sprinkler heads are closed (i.e., non-fused) and there is no water in the piping until turned on by a separate alarm system. Even the separate alarm system can be cross-zoned so that two detectors on two different circuits must agree that their is fire or smoke before the water is turned on to the piping. Note that even then, water doesn't flow until a sprinkler head actually fuses (at approximately 165 degrees at which point water damage is mute)! The sequence of these systems is as follows:   (1) Smoke detector on alarm system zone 1 says "Hey, l I've got a fire!"   (2) Smoke detector on alarm system zone 2 agrees, saying "Hey, me too!"   (3) The fire alarm panel then opens the sprinkler system valve allowing the piping pre-fill with water which still does not flow anywhere but in the pipes.   (4) The Fire Department arrives and handles the situation, OR   (5) A single sprinkler head, directly over the fire, actually fuses and applies water to the fire.   The beauty of this system is that if you knock off a sprinkler head, no water flows unless the piping has already been charged by the alarm system. On the other head, if a detector malfunctions, an alarm is sent, but no water flows because the sprinkler has not fused. These systems are used all the time ... libraries, the National Archives, etc.!   As to sprinkler piping/head placement, there are a variety of different heads available, but I would probably want to go with recessed overhead standard sprinklers. They work quicker when really needed, aren't in the way, and don't take up any of that valuable wall "offset" space!   Also, I can find no research in our extensive library where the extremely low or high frequencies found in organ chambers have any documented history of causing a sprinkler head to falsely activate. As the odds are currently viewed by the insurance industry of false activation at 1 in 16,000,000 which is the same as winning the Texas Lottery. :) Please feel free to drop a line if I can provide additional information.   I hope this information helps you in your project.   Bob Acker Allen, Texas

I'll go first. One of my favorites is a song called "Wedding Prayer" by Fern Glascow Dunlap; the words and music are so beautiful that I get goosebumps every time I play the last page. And although I realize that most organists are growing tired of them, I still enjoy playing the Clark/Purcell/(whoever) "Trumpet Voluntary" and Purcell's "Trumpet Tune and Air". Gotta fire up those party horns once in awhile!! (OK, mine are electronic, but the Saville does have some nice reed sounds!)     George.Greene@RossNutrition.com

(back) Subject: Mozart K. 594 From: "John L. Speller" <jlspeller@stlnet.com> Date: Fri, 15 May 1998 11:45:34 -0500 (CDT)   I think this is the G. Donald Harrison organ listed on the Aeolian-Skinner list as First Methodist Episcopal Church, York, Pa. (Opus 975 of 1938), in which case it is just four instruments earlier than ours (Op. 979) here at St. Mark's Episcopal in St. Louis. It looks as though it is a very fine instrument, though strangely Skinneresque for Harrison at this period. I would have thought the Mozart piece would come off rather well on it. There are plenty of flutes suitable for the soft passages at the beginning and end -- you might experiment with the Great Bordun and/or Spitzflote and the Choir Orchestral Flute for these (with or without octave couplers.) For the louder section in the middle you want a fairly bright transparent sound, and you might try Gr. Second Open, Gemshorn and Grave Mixture coupled to Sw. Geigen Diapason, Octave Geigen and Mixture, with the Swell to Great 8' coupler and perhaps with the Swell to Great 4' coupler too (unless that makes it sound too top-heavy.) All of this, of course, with a suitable Pedal. I have a recording from the 1960s of Peter Hurford playing this piece at St. Alban's Cathedral where with considerable effect he jumps to Full Swell (including 16' and 4' couplers) with box firmly shut for the cadence at the end of the center section. My main advice, though, as with any organ and any piece, is try lots of different things and see which one works best for you.   John.
