She loves to read and these several months have been a real problem for her with trying to read the newspaper. And at least her = vision is 20/40 with these so she can continue to drive a bit during the daytime although i am trying to discourage that as much as possible.   Hopefully on Saturday on to Atlantic City but we are still waiting for confirmation of the time for checking out the Kimball. Got a note from = Tim finally - he was using a friend;s account from the Quad Cities - the wedding went well and he only made some mistakes in the recessional. Was glad to hear that.   It is so nice a cool here - I hate to think about going back South to = that oven.   later   David

(back) Subject: Munster Fugue From: Oboe32@aol.com Date: Thu, 19 Aug 1999 09:29:57 EDT   Susan Armstrong is one of those great recitalists who loves to satirize recitals a bit, so for her Halloween recital up at Methuen, she was given = a piece by a good friend. It turned out to be the "Munster Fugue". It is = taken from the popular TV show, and it takes the theme into a few variations. I know it is still unpublished, as Susan has one of the only copies, but man =   what a fun piece!!   -pete

(back) Subject: "Melody in A Major" From: John Vanderlee <jovanderlee@vassar.edu> Date: Thu, 19 Aug 1999 16:07:46 -0500   Dear List,   This question is directed to the more "pop" oriented members. Theatre = organ people, take note:   In 1912 a Charles Dawes composed a tune "Melody in A major" which later resurfaced as "It's all in the game" in the '50s. Does any one know if the ORIGINAL 1912 instrumental version is published anywhere?   Thanks in advance,   John V      
(back) Subject: Wanamaker Grand Court Organ From: "Jason D. Comet" <bombarde8@juno.com> Date: Thu, 19 Aug 1999 05:10:56 -0400   This time next week I will possibly be taking a tour of the Wanamaker Grand Court Organ and listening to a concert of it. I can't get any sleep at night thinking about what I'm going to do, how much money I should take, with enough to shop in the store and donate personally to the Organ Society.   Has anyone else had any experiences of any sort relating to this monumental organ? Anyone play it? Maybe if I give a $200 donation while I'm at the Console then I could play it, but I doubt it. I'd have to become VERY good friends with Mr. Conte and the Organ staff in less than a week. Does anyone have an e-mail address?????   I can't believe that I'm this close to accomplishing one of my dreams in life. Now, I've got to get to the Atlantic City Organ, help restore it (physically), get them to reinstall the portable 5 manual Console, and give a concert to myself in a completely empty room, play the Ball room organ, learn how to play the theatre organ, play the Radio City Music Hall organ in a performance, play the Crystal Cathedral Organ on a taped service, build the worlds largest pipe organ (if I love the two present ones), start my own organ company, provide underfurnished churches with a top-of-the-line pipe organ, build several Granite church edifices in many styles of architecture, build two of my own houses (one in this town and another on lake Ontario a few miles from here) both with four manual concert organs and four manual church organs, .....   Well, you've got the idea, but first, I think I've got to become a millionaire!   Well, I just can't wait until I park in the store's parking lot and start walking through the main front doors into the store and into the atrium and here the blowers start up (if that's possible, or the lights dim down while the blower starters kick in the blowers). I'm in heaven before we even leave!!!!!   Gidiously, Jason Comet bombarde8@juno.com |\ Organist/Assistant Choir Director Emmanual Congregational | \ Church-UCC | 2/22 M.P.

(back) Subject: New Casavant, Reno, NV From: OrganMD@aol.com Date: Thu, 19 Aug 1999 18:46:52 EDT   Hi List:   Do any of you know the specifications of a new Casavant installed in Reno Nevada recently?   You may feel free to make a private reply if you do not wish to take up bandwidth of the list.   Thanks, Bill

(back) Subject: Expression piano in fo sought From: KriderSM@aol.com Date: Thu, 19 Aug 1999 21:47:06 EDT   Greetings, List: Please forgive this slightly off-subject posting. (it does have a keyboard =   and is operated by air, however)   A friend of mine has a Melville Clark "Solo Apollo Expression Piano". This instrument is unusual in that the Tracker Bar contains 140 hole positions. In addition to the standard 88 hole positions, there are 19 = holes to the left side, and 20 holes to the right side of the basic 88 hole positions. A one-hole position is located between the middle 88 and each = side grouping of holes. He desires assistance in determining where the tubing leads to that connects to the side hole positions on the Tracker Bar.   To whom or to where can he go to obtain this information?   Stan Krider

(back) Subject: re: Master Tallis's Testament From: Lee T Lovallo <llovallo@juno.com> Date: Thu, 19 Aug 1999 22:32:52 -0700   Does anyone know upon which piece of Tallis this piece by Herbert Howells is based? Or is it just a "free association?" Thanks!   --Lee T. Lovallo, Sacramento, CA     ___________________________________________________________________ Get the Internet just the way you want it.
