However, let's be charitable enough to remember that when the recording was cut, Schweitzer was a very old man, and had been living in Africa, without any opportunity to practice regularly, for several decades. That makes it a lot easier to understand. I believe the organ which was used was the one in the parish church in Gunsbach, Alsace, which was the town where Schweitzer grew up. I have not owned the record in many years, and so recall no further particulars about the organ.   -----Original Message----- From: VEAGUE <dutchorgan@svs.net> To: e-mail organ chat <pipechat@pipechat.org> Date: Friday, November 06, 1998 10:29 PM Subject: Old J.S.     >I heard a story once, that Bach would go to an organ builder to try out his >latest instrument.

(back) Subject: The Bamboo Organ From: Bud <budchris@earthlink.net> Date: Sat, 07 Nov 1998 09:11:15 -0800   There was a whole story about the restoration of the bamboo organ by Klais ... they packed it up and sent it back to Germany in a temperature and humidity controlled cargo container that reproduced the organ's original environment to keep it from deteriorating further; when it reached Germany, it was unpacked in a room at the Klais factory that reproduced the same conditions. The Germans went NUTS working in the high heat and humidity! However, Klais was so taken with the sound of the instrument that they began introducing a "Bamboo Flute" (can't remember the German) in some of their organs.   Regards,   Bud

Successful at reducing cost? Successful at sounding better? Successful at being more durable than "traditional materials"?   There's a lot of room in this definition. . .   > I know some builders are using them instead of zinc basses for > lighter weight (and economy?), but has anyone heard a successful > complete aluminum rank of strings, principals, etc.?   As a practical matter, it becomes enormously difficult to fabricate aluminum pipes by the methods currently employed by the Matters Brothers in South Dakota (the only makers of such pipes to my knowledge!) much smaller than about 1-1/2" in diameter, which is the top of the 4' octave o an 8' Principal. These pipes are produced by heli-arc welding up sheets, and once we get smaller than that, it becomes an unworkable situation; certainly not one that is cost-justifiable!   > Does the difference in the metal substantially alter the harmonic development, etc.?   It certainly does in the bass section, where it would count the most! The tone produced is much more akin to the gentler sound of Spotted Metal pipes in the 4' and 8' octaves of Principals than the "harsher" sound of Zincs in that same range.   > P.S. - See, I CAN write about organ topics TOO (grin)!   Keep up the good work! :o)   Faithfully,   "Arp" (Back home from Michigan, but still don't have my shop computer back, yet!)      
(back) Subject: Update on Mom (A little late!) From: Richard Schneider <arpncorn@davesworld.net> Date: Sat, 07 Nov 1998 20:40:03 -0600     Dear Friends,   Some of you are getting this late, because I've discovered that some of my addresses in my Lap-top computer are ancient History, and I've not had the opportunity to go through ad update them from my Office computer. It's one of those things that one never thinks about, until the EMAIL gets bounced back as undeliverable!   I'm writing to let everyone know that we are thankful for the prayers that have been offered up for my Mom. She was discharged from the hospital on Wednesday afternoon and is home. She was doing fine; back on solid foods, until she got overly-ambitious yesterday and tried to eat an Arby's Chicken Cordon Bleu sandwich. Actually, I think the sandwich would have agreed with her, but she ate it too quickly and suffered severe gastronomically distress as a result. The problem was: I didn't realize what this was and was concerned that maybe something had gone wrong from her surgery. So yesterday afternoon was Hell on Earth!   Today, we visited the Oncologist and learned that she had a form of cancer called Carcenoid Cancer. What we know is that it is in her Liver and abdominal tract. They have indicated that it is a slow-growing form of Cancer; many people live with it for YEARS! They have decided, for the time-being, against any form of Chemo Therapy or Radiation treatments, as they do not consider this to be effective against it. They only treat the symptoms, which is generally diherria. They seem to have gotten that problem under control with a pill twice a day.   So, it appears to be "The best of the bad"; sort of an oxymoron: while it would be much better to not have any Cancer whatsoever, at least this type seems to be very mild-at least at this stage, in terms of its affect on my Mother's Quality of Life.   Meantime, continued prayers over the coming months certainly will not be ignored at the Throne of Grace! Who knows, that the Lord might not do a mighty work and completely heal her of this?   Thanks again to all those who prayed, and to those so inclined, your continued prayers will be most gratefully appreciated at this time!   Faithfully,   Rich Schneider mailto: arpncorn@davesworld.net

(back) Subject: Re: Nun Danket - was a Bach story From: JKVDP@aol.com Date: Sun, 8 Nov 1998 00:40:01 EST   I find it most interesting that the inspiration for "Now Thank We All Our God" came from the Apocrypha which most Protestants do not accept as Scripture. If your pastor has strong Puritan empathy, point him/her to Ecclesiasticus 50: 22 - 26 and say how glad you are that the church is using the Apocrypha!! Jerry in Seattle
