(back) Subject: WELCOME AIDA From: "VEAGUE" <dutchorgan@svs.net> Date: Mon, 26 Oct 1998 07:12:28 -0500   Guess, what? ! I have the album you are looking for, and you may have it. If you would like the LP, or a tape of it, let me know. Record in beautiful playing condition and sound. Write me for your address <dutchorgan@svs.net >. As you can tell by my handle, I like ' dutch ' organs. IE: the street organs so popular years ago in Holland, by makers from Carl Frei, Stinsen, Gavioli, etc. These instruments have such a sweet sound compared to the loud and rauchous American band organ. Have talked to a few people from Holland who know nothing of the existance of these organs anymore over there. Glad you heard Wanamakers Grand Court Organ. I've not been there, but have several recordings of it. One of the finest instruments I've ever heard, indeed. Welcome to the fold, and let me know on the album. Rick Veague dutchorgan@svs.net

(back) Subject: Re: Slowing Blower Starts = Slowing SIlent Film Speeds From: ORGANUT@aol.com Date: Mon, 26 Oct 1998 07:55:06 EST   Dennis,   The adjustable frequency drive units are available from 1/2 HP to 5 HP in single phase input and 1/6 HP to 10 HP in three phase input models. They are also available in any number of sizes in single phase to single phase units.   You can get all the application information from: BOSTON FINCOR (York,Pa) 1-800-334-3040   I am presently using a 5HP unit on my organ blower motor (single to 3 phase unit) which has solved all of my problems (except my playing!!!). Measures 7x7x8 inches for $545.   Hope this info is helpful.   Later, Phil Lyons Jr.

The Main organ of the Creative Arts Center was a MOVEABLE Moller, of 72? stops.

Not all pipe organs are wonderful?! What a revelation!!! > That's a fact. I met Frankenorgel, a mixed breed of a poorly built 2 man/ 3 or 4 rank pip organ (not a misspelling -- it didn't deserve the full word!) that someone had chopped the console by removing the stopkey bolster, building "drawknob type jambs" on the sides where they installed TOGGLE SWITCHES for stop controls, then took a Yamaha synthesizer, cut the keyboard off it and attached it to the bottom of the great, and stuck the control portion of the keyboard where the stopkeys were supposed to go. It was frightening to look at, and horrible to play. You couldn't change registrations in the service for all the click-click of the switches.   With the synthesizer it was absolutely abominable. Without it, it was still lousy.   They didn't hire me. Thank God.   Dennis

(back) Subject: Great Organ Improvisations - where? From: JKVDP@aol.com Date: Mon, 26 Oct 1998 16:09:15 EST   Reading the posts from people of Dutch heritage, I am reminded that just over a year ago my wife and I attended the Morning Service at the Boven Kerk in Kampen. Firstly I was overwhelmed by the great building converted to Protestant worship in the 16th Century. Then I was in awe of the opening symphonic-type improvisation based on a Genevan Psalm played on the great Hinze organ. The improvisation was high art. Then on cue - I missed the cue - the congregation of a thousand stood and, young and old, thundered out the tune. And everyone sang!!! Then the clergy and consistory entered. Before each Psalm or Hymn there was a shorter improvisation. A final stunning improvisation after the Benediction concluded the service.   I know of the great contemporary French improvisors. I know of the improvisations at St. John the Divine in NYC.   Where else have listers experienced memorable improvisations in worship services?   Jerry in Seattle

But soon we understood most of it, so they tried Gronigs (sp?) but we also came to understand that. Finally Mom tried Frisian which we kids could not understand, but then neither could my dad.   Recently when visiting Holland I was surprised to learn that when I'd ask "Ken U Engels?" (do you speak English?), the younger Dutch would all reply "just a little" and then go on to speak perfect English! Jerry van der Pol, Seattle USA
