(back) Subject: New T.O. CD !!!! (longish!) From: danbel@earthlink.net Date: Sat, 26 Sep 1998 09:04:09 -0400   Greetings everyone---   It's not all that often that a new theatre organ compact disc comes into my collection period -- let alone one that moves me to want to publically promote the artistry in question. It is great fun in this case because it gives me the greatest pleasure to introduce you all to the artistry of Mr. David Lowe.   I met Mr. Lowe for the first time a good number of years ago on the occasion of my first pipe organ concert trip to the United Kingdom. When I first heard him play, I was sincerely impressed with his versatility at the console. He plays the purest of American theatre organ styles along with the refreshing differences of the British approach to the instrument. Although he can play a ballad in the most sincere and emotional fashion, he is a master of the British novelty tune in my humble opinion! I don't think I have heard anyone else anywhere who can inject just the right bounce and vitality to these wonderful little pieces as does David!!   In this, David's first compact disc release, the instrument presented is the 3/8 Wurlitzer owned by Cinema Organ Society General Secretary John Smallwood of Tywyn, Wales. It is installed in Neuadd Pendre in Tywyn and is on permanent loan to the people of Tywyn.   Being a fan of music of the theatre, I was very pleased to hear David's inclusion of a selection from "Me and My Girl." The ballads "Too Late Now" and "We'll Gather Lilacs" are particularly lovely. There is a medley of Welsh melodies along with a sprinkling of those fabulous novelty tunes -- "Poodle in The Park" being my absolute favourite!!   There are 20 tracks on the CD so I will not list them all here but would be happy to send along more details if requested by private email. There is a distinct "railroad" flavor to the musical menu -- most likely due to the fact that David is employed full time by the British railway industry, AND the fact that Mr. Smallwood is also involved in railroading!   It is GREAT fun, this recording, and I would invite all of you to take advantage of something a bit different in the best of possible ways. You may order the CD by mailing a bank check or draft in the amount of 10 GBP to this address: DAVID LOWE 72 Primrose Lane, Gelstead, Bingley, West Yorks., BD16 4QP ENGLAND You may also order using your Mastercard if you wish. Include the number and expiration date in your mail order.   Thanks for reading these sincere thoughts about David and his music. I KNOW you will be very happy upon hearing his artistry yourself!! :)   Dan Bellomy      
(back) Subject: Important - Possible Outage From: Administrator <admin@pipechat.org> Date: Sat, 26 Sep 1998 14:16:51 -0500   Folks   As some of you already know, the servers for PipeChat, both the list server and the IRC server are located in Pensacola Florida. And if you have been watching the news at all you will realize that Pensacola is in the path of Hurricane Georges.   I will strive to keep everything running as long as possible and hope that there won't be any interruptions. However, there are lots of factors beyond my control that ccan cause an outage. If either or both the list and the IRC go down, I will try to have us back up and running as soon as possible.   If you send a message to the list and it doesn't appear on your computer as normally hapopens, do not send it again. Email servers keep trying to deliver mail for up to 5 days so hopefully any message you have sent will not get lost. If it doesn't appear once I post an announcement that we are back up and running only then resend it.   Also, you may not be able to connect to the IRC server on Monday night. But by next Friday everything should be back up and running normally.   Hopefully, we will not loose services but just in case I wanted to notify all of you.   Have a good weekend.   David **************************************** David Scribner Co-Owner / Technical Administrator PipeChat   850-478-9635 david@blackiris.com

(back) Subject: new Position From: giwro@juno.com Date: Sat, 26 Sep 1998 14:42:49 -0700   Hi fellow chatters,   I have a new position overseeing the music at San Gabriel Presbyterian Church! This is a part-time post, and the session has hired me on a month-to month basis with the understanding that I will be leaving when I find something full-time. While it is not my first choice, this will allow me the freedom to continue looking, and with a generous PT salary I will go into the hole much more slowly than with no salary at all! I have a second interview for a FT position on Monday evening, so we will see how that goes. Many thanks to all of you out there who have written me notes of encouragement and remembered me in your prayers. I'll keep you all posted as events continue to unfold.   *********************** Jonathan Orwig http://members.aol.com/giwro/index.html (personal) http://members.aol.com/evnsong/pgone.html (Music Publishing)   ___________________________________________________________________ You don't need to buy Internet access to use free Internet e-mail.

Those of you who have tackled this lovely instrument will know that one must create one's own articulation and that the instrument sounds quite ineffective unless proper tongueing is applied. That's no different from other wind instruments - it's simply that there is a very immediate sense of articulation with the simple recorder. =20 =20 I always felt that experience seemed to flow naturally on to the organ and that similar styles of articulation seemed to always work well. I certainly never had any tendency to play an "automatic" legato! =20 =20 Were it possible, I would always wish to see any organ student learn a wind instrument as well. Or should I say, ANOTHER wind instrument! =20 =20 Thanks for a continuing and most interesting series=20 =20 Roger =20 =20     Roger Brown robrown@melbpc.org.au http://members.tripod.com/~RogerBrown
