One book on which I relied for some information documented the history of the Tabernacle Choir, and contained information about the construction of the present Tabernacle auditorium = and the organ that devloped into the one we know today. I cannot recall the author, but it was published by Deseret Press. It's certainly possible = that an organ by Ridges came first and was "absorbed" within the larger instrument constructed on site. He may have had a hand in the latter project; I'm sorry I can't remember the details.   Peter    
(back) Subject: Mormon Tabernacle Organs From: <flcg1018@mails.fju.edu.tw> Date: Wed, 8 Dec 1999 22:55:01 +0800 (CST)     Fellow list members,     Barbara Owen authored a book on the previous Mormon Tabernacle Organs and the present Mormon Tabernacle Organ... consult the Organ Historical Society or the Organ Literature Foundation to see if they can come up with a copy for you.... The book seems (to me, at least) to be very complete, and it certainly has some nice color pictures...   I'm sure piporg-l list member Rick Elliott can remember the name of the tome...   Best wishes to all.     Morton Belcher Fellow piporg-l list member

Quite a nice book = with excellent photos. David

From: "VEAGUE" <dutchorgan@svs.net> Date: Sat, 8 Dec 2012 13:06:30 -0500   Wouldn't it be nice if tracker organ building were introduced or included in high school or college mechanical engineering courses?   Who knows --perhaps some Rube Goldbergs would blossom +ACE-   Rick dutchorgan+AEA-svs.net http://www.svs.net/Dutch        
(back) Subject: Notre Dame de Paris. From: "Richard Pinel" <rpinelchat@musicman123.freeserve.co.uk> Date: Wed, 8 Dec 1999 20:24:02 -0000   Dear List,   Today my teacher leant me a CD of some Dupre at Notre Dame in Paris. This reminded me to ask this question (I have thought of it before but forgot = it before getting as far as the list!!!). It is, the famous En Chamades are listed at being at 8' and 4' pitch and 2/16' pitch - what on earth is 2/16 pitch (written as a proper fraction on the spec) and why isn't it 1/8?!   Thanks   Richard.    
(back) Subject: New Organ Photos--cross posted From: <SchultzRH@aol.com> Date: Wed, 8 Dec 1999 18:36:24 EST   The new III/59 Martin Ott organ arrived on October 3. It is now well into voicing with most of the flue pipes voiced. The reeds will be completed in =   January. Check it out; a photo of the organ as installed with the complete =   specification may be found at   www.trinitylansdale.com   Scroll down to the bottom of the page to the link to the complete case and =   specificaiton.   As it has been progressing, I have played some of the stops that have been =   completed. The flutes are absolutely marvelous. They flow so smoothly into =   the reverberant room. The 8' principal on the great will lead the congregation. The swell string celeste with the 32' subbass and the = Oberwerk flutes create that french sound of the large cathedrals. The tracker = action is very easy to play and the Bach pieces just happen so easily. Needless = to say, I like the organ!   I hope that list readers near the Philadelphia area will be able to attend =   the dedication on March 5, 2000. David Higgs will be playing two identical =   recitals.   Ralph Schultz Trinity Ev. Lutheran Chruch Lansdale PA
