School doesn't start until next <BR>monday. This is the first semester that I've been able to take all music <BR>classes. Most of the stuff is pretty normal: Theory etc. I am also taking <BR>a few music history classes including organ lit. and also a class = called <BR>Technology in teaching music, in addition to my organ lessons.   <P>As far as the Holtkamp goes, I have not had a chance to play it since my <BR>audition back in March. But as I remember it, I never did have to use the <BR>mixture at all because the 2's were bright enough! I never got to the <BR>trumpet but I expect that it was loud! A really disapointing thing is that <BR>the strings are very weak. But this may be due to the fact that the Vox <BR>Celeste is tuned to beat very slowly with the Gamba. I would have prefured <BR>the Skinner over the Holtkamp but things didn't work out that way.   <P>I have not had a chance to try out the pratice organs yet but two are by <BR>Holtkamp and one by Wicks. We also have access to the fine Taylor and <BR>Boody organ at 1st Pres. which by the way replaced a re-worked <BR>Aeolian-Skinner. I'll certainly keep in touch and let you know about <BR>what's happening here at FSU.   <P>It is certainly nice to be able to play pipes again after having Allens <BR>for so long.   <P>Will Scarboro <BR>American Municipal Pipe Organ Research Project <BR>1996 OHS E.

It was cut loose and put in the basement when the = Skinner was <BR>moved to Oppermann Hall.   <P>Dr. Beard's studio organ was in one of the towers of the main building <BR>originally ... it was a two-manual Skinner unit residence organ ... I think <BR>the player mechanism had been removed.   <P>There was a slightly larger Skinner residence organ in the main = auditorium ... <BR>totally inadequate, as it spoke through a tone chute in the ceiling .... but <BR>the player DID work, and there was a large library of rolls, including <BR>oversized ones of operas, symphonies, etc. that played from a second player <BR>housed in a separate cabinet from the console.   <P>The other practice organs were an old Moller Artiste and a Hammond = concert <BR>model.   <P>I knew the older two-manual Skinner in First Pres ... the three manual A/S <BR>came after my time in Tallahassee.   <P>BTW, I used to also play the cast-bell chime in St. John's Episcopal downtown <BR>... it had been silent for many years, and a gang of us got it playing again. <BR>The organ at St. John's at the time was a DREADFUL Estey ... think it's been <BR>replaced by a Schantz, but in the same location (the north transcept), so I <BR>don't know how much more successful it is at speaking around the = corner than <BR>the Estey was.   <P>First Baptist was a screech-and-snarl three-manual Moller, First = Methodist was <BR>a small unfinished three-manual Austin, and Chapel of the Resurrection <BR>(Episcopal Student Center) was a little four-rank unit organ built by E.M. <BR>Skinner Church Organs, Inc. ... they were the last of the surviving Skinner <BR>crew, and settled somewhere in northern Florida ... they also built organs for <BR>All Saints' and St. David's in Lakeland, and Mulberry Methodist (a twin of the <BR>Resurrection organ). They were the ones who did the A/S transplant for First <BR>Pres in Tallahassee. I don't know if they still exist or not ... they were <BR>mostly a tuning and service company by the late '50s.   <P>I imagine the Holtkamp in Oppermann is rather "austere", though they did build <BR>a three-manual tracker in more-or-less French classic/romantic style in La <BR>Mesa Methodist (a suburb of San Diego) ... I liked the sound of that one, but <BR>the key-action was very heavy. I've never heard the Oppermann = Holtkamp.   <P>Enjoy yourself ... Tallahassee is a GREAT place ... be sure to go = swimming at <BR>Blue Sink!   <P>Cheers,   <P>Bud   <P>----------------------------------------------------------------------   <P>Subject: Re: Need "Goin'Home" <BR>From: Bud/Burgie &lt;budchris@earthlink.net> <BR>Date: Wed, 25 Aug 1999 10:54:09 -0700   <P>There ARE more words than that, and I played it about a zillion years ago <BR>for a soloist at a funeral, but I have no idea where the music is now .... <BR>let me call my 75-year-old mezzo and see if she knows ... she nodded <BR>approvingly when I played the organ version at the funeral of a former <BR>choir member.   <P>Cheers,   <P>Bud   <P>Irwin Franklin wrote:   <P>> The only lyrics I have ever heard are: <BR>>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; "Goin' home, goin' home, <BR>>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; I'm just goin' home (then repeated) with the Dvorak <BR>>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; tune. <BR>> <BR>> --- prswank@impop.bellatlantic.net wrote: <BR>> > I have been asked to sing and play a song during a <BR>> > funeral on Friday <BR>> > (only two days away), entitled something like <BR>> > "Comin' Home" or Goin" <BR>> > Home".&nbsp; The only one I can think of like that is <BR>> > "Goin' Home" from the <BR>> > New World Symphony by Dvorak.&nbsp; I have found that one <BR>> > in an old book, but <BR>> > the title there is "Massa Dear", which of course <BR>> > will not do.&nbsp; The <BR>> > family has heard it sometime in the past and can't <BR>> > help me out to find <BR>> > it. <BR>> > <BR>> > Any idea where I can find Goin' Home by Dvorak with <BR>> > some realistic <BR>> > lyrics for a funeral?&nbsp;&nbsp; Thanks in advance. <BR>> > In the meantime, I will be surfing the net for it, <BR>> > myself. <BR>> > <BR>> > Paul R.

Anches when it <BR>asks for it. <BR>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; "Anches Grand-Orgue" at the end includes the following battery of <BR>stops.&nbsp; Octave 4', Quinte 3', Doublette 2', Fourniture, Bombarde 16', <BR>Trompette 8', and Clairon 4'. <BR>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; There most certainly is more to it than just unison pitches!&nbsp; An <BR>odd thing about this piece is that Pierne asks you to open the doors <BR>before adding the Recit Anches.&nbsp; A more logical method of = crescendo would <BR>be to add the Swell Reeds and THEN crescendo sometime during the = middle of <BR>page 5, leading nicely into the addition of the Positif reeds.   <P>> I'll be interested in the responses you get to this, but it's my <BR>> understanding that in French music of this school 8-foots (feet?) <BR>> predominate and that you should not use much in the way of 2' and Mixtures. <BR>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Nope, your confusing France with Germany and the United States. <BR>French organs most certainly do use 2' and Mixtures, along with a = battery <BR>of reeds that will knock your socks off.   <P>> Think horizontally instead of vertically.&nbsp; A warm sound, more orchestral <BR>> than brilliant. <BR>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Again, your confusing = Cavaille-Coll with Ernest Skinner.&nbsp; While <BR>the sound of a C-C is certainly very warm (especially in comparison to the <BR>neo-baroque screechers that we find on this side of the pond), C-C <BR>certainly built vertical choruses and the composers definitely want them.   <P>Robert Horton - GTA, University of Kansas <BR><A = HREF=3D"http://falcon.cc.ukans.edu/~gemshorn">http://falcon.cc.ukans.edu/~g= emshorn</A>   <P>"Does it change many dyslexics how to take a lightbulb?"   <P>----------------------------------------------------------------------   <P>Subject: Virgil Fox 1950s <BR>From: "Edward Marsh" &lt;edmarsh@lineone.net> <BR>Date: Wed, 25 Aug 1999 20:16:10 +0100   <P>This is a multi-part message in MIME format.   <P>------=3D_NextPart_000_0023_01BEEF36.ABCF13E0 <BR>Content-Type: text/plain; <BR>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; charset=3D"iso-8859-1" <BR>Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable   <P>I am trying to locate the title of a piece of music written for solo =3D <BR>pedal that Virgil Fox played in a recital circa 1954/55 at St Mary's =3D <BR>Church, Redcliffe in Bristol UK.
