(back) Subject: Fw: Easter From: "VEAGUE" <dutchorgan@svs.net> Date: Fri, 2 Apr 1999 07:38:03 -0500   In the King James, I forget what book / letter in the New Testament, the word "Easter" replaced the word "Passover". Did the scribes or ancient translators know something WE don't know, or just a substitutorial inclusion?   Rick Cuckoo clocks make great wedding gifts   -----Original Message----- From: N Brown <Innkawgneeto@webtv.net> To: PipeChat <pipechat@pipechat.org> Date: Friday, April 02, 1999 12:53 AM Subject: Re: Easter     To PrSwank, Thank you for the answer to my query about the word "easter". After publishing my question, I typed "Easter" into my search mode and actually came up with an explanation similar to yours. However, they stated that the word may have been derived from Scandinavian or Teutonic origin, the name for the goddess you mentioned. I'm not sure that matters really. It is interesting nonetheless.

(back) Subject: The Auditorium Organ, - a new CD. From: Bob Conway <conwayb@post.queensu.ca> Date: Fri, 02 Apr 1999 09:41:30 -0500   The recently issued CD of the Auditorium Organ at the Atlantic City Convention Hall is a worthy addition to any organ lovers collection.   The CD opens with three blowers starting up, this was recorded in the blower room, and is not noticeable on the recording of the music on the CD.   Antoni Scott then opens the proceedings with the Toccata from the Toccata and Fugue (BWV 565) by J. S. Bach. This gives us some idea of the immensity of this, the world's largest pipe organ, and seems to be an absolute requirement on any introductory recording of any organ! I have probably more recordings of the BWV 565 in my collection than of any other organ piece, for it seems mandatory that every organist should "give it a whirl".   Timothy Hoag, organist at the Convention Hall, then give us two selections associated with Atlantic City, "On the Boardwalk" and "There she is" reminding us that Atlantic City is the venue for the Miss America shenanigans!   He continues with two more theatre organ selections, "Original Rag" by Scott Joplin, and "Old Man River, from Jerome Kern's "Showboat", - I am not too well versed in Theatre Organ technique to judge the performance, but they both sound OK to me!   Gounod's "Marche Militaire" follows, but the CD booklet does not say who is playing it! Nor are we told who is playing "On the Road to Mandalay", an old warhorse of my youth!   David Scribner plays the "Berceuse" by Vierne, on a delightful registation of strings snd harmonic flutes, - this is my favourite track, for he captures the mood of the piece so well.   Monk's setting of "Abide with me" will bring back many memories to a lot of older listeners, and it is played by Clifton Stroud II, where he builds it up to a glorious wealth of sound, by adding stops almost on every line throughout the verses.   Antoni Scott plays the only piece that I did not know, Louis Bourgeois' "Psalm 100", with a fine use of the available registration at his hands. Stephen D. Smith rounds off the music for the CD with the Finale Chorale from Liszt's "Ad Nos Ad Salutarum Undam", and you might be as well to consider your woofers in this piece, for he adds the Grand Ophicleide stop at the end, - and you know that it is there!   Two demo tracks follow, the 100 inch Tuba Imperial and the Grand Ophicleide, both of which are most remarkable, and for good measure, the 64 foot Diaphone is put through its paces at the very end of the CD.   The little booklet that accompanies the CD gives the specs of the organ, and a detailed report on the making of the recording, - although the actual notes regarding the music are e bit 'sketchy', - but all the same, it is a valuable document on the Auditorium Organ.   The President of the Atlantic City Convention Hall Organ Society, Stephen D. Smith, writes in his notes that "This is a 'warts an' all' recording, as it was not possible to rectify all of the organ's faults in the time available" - this is true, but the whole venture is a worthy one and thanks must go to the ACCHOS for making this CD available to us.   For my part, as an "organic disc jockey" it is well worth the effort, and I heartily recommend it to all organ buffs! it is available from the ACCHOS or the OHS, at $15.00 US plus postage, - any moey accrued from the sale of this CD is going to be used to further the aims of the ACCHOS.   Go for it! With all the 'warts an' all'!   Bob Conway   Retired Organic DeeJay CFRC-FM, Queen's Radio, 101.9 FM Queen's University Kingston Ontario Canada.

(back) Subject: TracK-R" technology From: Bruce Behnke <behnke@lvcm.com> Date: Fri, 2 Apr 99 09:58:21 -0800   >Well...the new organ is is ACTUALLY the yet-to-be-announced Allen Organ >"TracK-R" technology,   WRONG! Oops, I'm sorry this was posted yseterday.   Steve Cook will arrive next Tuesday evening with about a million pieces of the instrument that he has been building in his house for the past year. He expects that it will all be assembled in a few days but will take several weeks to finish the final voicing, tonal finishing and tuning. Although it will be consecrated and put into use as soon as possible the inagural recital is scheduled for either the second or third week next October with David Dahl playing the recital and lotsa hoopla from the local AGO chapter.   Although my Principal still expects me to show up for work everyday, I am hoping to be at the church as much as possible. I am hoping to take many digital pictures and post them with descriptions on a web site. I don't feel like purchasing my own Realaudio server so I am negotiating with a site that does have one to see if I can link some audio to their site for a while. If that doesn't work it looks like Mp3s are in order.   Hopefully I will have something ready by next weekend and can send you the address. Until then, I have to figure out how to work GoLive Cyberstudio.   Bruce

(back) Subject: Re: [theatreorgans-l] pvc pipe(opinion) From: ORGANUT@aol.com Date: Fri, 2 Apr 1999 15:09:14 EST   Bob,   Several people have emailed me asking for information about the large size PVC pipe. Rather than answer each person separately, I will put the information on the different list. A local plumbing supply co. sells the SDR-35 (also called30/34) grade PVC pipe all the way up to 15 inch diameter. The 10 inch dia. comes in 16 foot lengths and cost $35 per length. The 15 inch diameter comes in a minimum size of 13 feet and runs $5.37/ft. They can obtain T"ees and long or short radius ELL's for these sizes. Any local large plumbing supply house can fix you up. It is real easy to drill a round hole into this pipe for the purpose of air takeoffs for different requirements. This pipe will clean up to a snow white ,glossy finish and can be painted if so desired.   Hope this information is helpful.   Later, Phil L.

(back) Subject: Re: The Auditorium Organ, - a new CD. From: antoni scott <ascott@epix.net> Date: Fri, 02 Apr 1999 18:54:55 -0500   Hi Bob:   Thank you for your nice comments about our CD. We had a wonderful time recording the organ, "warts 'n all". It is an absolutely outstanding instrument. The fact that it is also the largest organ in the world is almost secondary to its wealth of tone. One must wonder at the skill of the organ builder and it's architect, Emerson Richards. Also, when one considers the fact that only one out of the eight chambers is operational, we must only imagine what the entire organ sounds like.   We recorded two versions of the Toccata in D Minor. One was "all out" with every available stop on the organ, including the 32' Bombarde, plus all the oher 32's on the pedal as well as the 64' Diaphone Profunda. It was an awesome experience. The second version which ended up on the CD was mostly with the Diapason chorus plus mixtures on the Great and a Dulzian on the pedal. This was considered to be a more "classic" representation of the organ when playing the Toccata. To put both versions on the CD would be redundant.   Stephen Smith blew everyone out of the water with the Liszt. It was an experience that cannot be described. I was amazed at the clarity of the sound considering the size. The entire Auditorium was awash with sound.   Lastly, thanks must go to Charles Swisher and Jack Clotworthy for an outstanding effort to put this all together. Their tireless efforts have resulted in an outstanding event to take place. I am encouraged that this will arouse interest in this organ and hope that it will result in it being restored to its past glory.     Antoni Scott   Bob Conway wrote: > > The recently issued CD of the Auditorium Organ at the Atlantic City > Convention Hall is a worthy addition to any organ lovers collection. > > The CD opens with three blowers starting up, this was recorded in the > blower room, and is not noticeable on the recording of the music on the CD. > > Antoni Scott then opens the proceedings with the Toccata from the Toccata > and Fugue (BWV 565) by J.

(back) Subject: Good Friday From: Bud/burgie <budchris@earthlink.net> Date: Fri, 02 Apr 1999 18:00:42 -0800   Full church; full choir; gorgeous liturgy, except that I had to interrupt it between the Passion and the sermon to announce that three cars were about to get towed away because they were blocking the parking lot (!). But the irate gal who was blocked in was about to come into the church and announce it herself, so ... (we ARE in a shopping center, after all).   We sang "Were You There?", the whole congregation, a cappella, while the Sacred Ministers went in procession to the back of the church to begin the Veneration of the Cross (we use the new Roman form, starting in the back, like with the Paschal Candle) ... I don't think I'll ever do "Were You There?" any other way ...   Two hours of solid chanting, and we ran out of music TWICE ... at the return of the Blessed Sacrament, and during Communion ... I forgot that last year he gave communion in one Kind; this year we did the old Anglican custom of reserving the Precious Blood as well, so he gave communion in both kinds and it took longer. I don't know what to add to the return of the Sacrament ... we already sing seven verses of "Vexilla regis" PLUS the three antiphons from the new rite (our Altar of Repose is in the Parish Hall, and he changes vestments as well) ... maybe one of the Good Friday Tenebrae responsories ... the Palestrina "Adoramus te" would just about fill up the communion-time, and the first chord is the same as the last chord of the Palestrina "Crux fidelis" ... or we could follow the Orthodox rubric and simply repeat something that the choir has sung well, like "Christus factus est".   Tomorrow and Sunday are easy by comparison ... the Vigil is LONG, but the music is comparatively simple; and Easter Day, for all the carryings-on, is just Mass with fancy propers and a big anthem.   I MAY play the Benoit Toccata and Fugue on "Victimae paschali", if I get down to the church to practice in the morning. The Widor is RETIRED ... PERMANENTLY (grin).   Happy Easter!   Bud

They have everything you could think of and especially older music. Our local community chorus would borrow copies of some of the big choral works because they had paid a small membership fee and borrowed the copies for the price of postage. I bet they have a website, but I can't check until after the weekend is over. Very handy for churches that have a limited budget. You can get single anthems, too, Mary Cheney Gould, a knowledgable organist-choir director heads the library and knows everything. Hope this helps.   A blessed Easter to all.   JOHN
