Double duty seldom works in organ design. Using a 16 stop on the manuals and pedals usually results in the wrong volume/sound in at least one place, occasionally in both places.   ........................bruce cornely........................ o o o o ______________ o o o o o h o o ______________ o o g o o o s o ______________ o a o o   ............. cremona84000@webtv.net ............   Dogs love company.

Anyone know about this thing?? It does have a nice, fat, rich tone, and is definately a pipe organ.   Thanks,   Kevin Cartwright Greenville, Alabama kevin1@alaweb.com

All I can tell you about the organ in Church Street U.M. Church, Selma, Alabama, is that it was originally a Pilcher, was rebuilt and enlarged in 1987 by Guzowski & Steppe, and it currently has 4 manuals and 35 ranks. Was your recording before or after the rebuild?   Kind regards,   John.
