Thus, no organ and the stuff we associate with big gatherings of people.   Alan  
(back) Subject: Re: A curiosity question From: OrganMD@aol.com Date: Thu, 15 Apr 1999 08:57:51 EDT   Please let me respond to the question about the instruments of the Salt Lake Temple on Temple Square.   first let me explain that there are no worship services as we all think of them held in the temple, therefore the need for an organ is not high. With that said there are indeed 4 organs in the temple, all of the toaster variety. Two of the instruments are in chapel like rooms where the purpose if the instruments is to play "waiting music" while temple patrons are indeed waiting to move on to some other part of the building. One instrument is located in the "Assembly Room" where about 3 times per year it is used to support a meeting of the temple staff.....and help them to sing a hymn. The last instrument is located in the room that is the weekley meeting room for the presiding leaders of the church (about 15 people....a small room) and is used to sing a hymn with.   I hope that this helps.   Bill Hesterman

In a fit of passion, I erroneously referred to all electronic organs as "toasters" in a past posting.   It is a derogatory term really, as I believe there is a real difference between a genuine electronic organ of the modern variety as opposed to the home "toys." In that sense pipes and electronics can live side by side. Technology can't be stopped, but it's kind of fun to know that imitation is still the sincerest form of flattery and they all aspire to imitate the best... Pipes!   John V

Pipes!   This is reasonable. Frankly, when I think of organs, though, I don't even consider the home toys mentioned here. While the electronic church or theatre organ at least has the appearance of a pipe organ, the home variety is more like a digital keyboard on steroids.   Dennis

Are we saying that some of us have a problem with the word "toaster" being used to describe uh,,,ahhh,,,ummm, well an electronic organ that plugs in the wall?
