Needed for a project a friend and I are working on is an 8' Trumpet for small pipe organ. Condition isn't so important (missing a pipe or two, missing a few reeds, dents ok, even compass down to only TG or TF might do), but the scale should be 3-4" at TC, voiced on ca. 3.5" wind. We're in Northern California (Sacramento) and can be reached privately via llovallo@juno.com. Thanks for any suggestions, and a Merry Christmas to all! --Lee Lovallo     ___________________________________________________________________ Why pay more to get Web access?

From: "Will Scarboro" <whs1325@garnet.acns.fsu.edu> Date: Wed, 15 Dec 1999 18:29:08 -0500     We're in the middle of finals week here at Florida State and I got one of =   the more stressful things completed today: my jury in organ. I played two =   pieces, Hymn trio on "All Glory, Laud, and Honor" by Richard Hudson, and the P and F in g minor from the 8 little by Bach. I did pretty well, although I made a few big mistakes in the Hudson piece I did recover nicely. This piece is hard because the tempo is quarter note =3D 88 with = the right hand playing mostly 8th and 16th notes! Anyway I passed and I'll be =   at Sophomore level next semester. I am happy and I'm glad its over.   I was a little worried because I have been a little under the weather lately, and when I'm like that I don't play as well. As a matter of fact, yesterday I tried to play my pieces while I was doped up on cold medicine. =   Needless to say, the results were not exactly what Bach intended, as I tastefully re-wrote the P and F in g minor.   I was happy also that the Holtkamp behaved itself during my jury. 25 = years of wear and tear have caused the couplers to act up. There are a few notes =   that sometime stick on the positiv to great coupler, and a note that doesn't always couple though when the swell to pedal is on. We've also got =   another problem to watch for because when this organ was built Holtkamp used plastic linkages on their mechanical action and 25 years later those plastic linkages are beginning to get brittle and could break at anytime resulting in dead notes. Hopefully the organ will get a well deserved renovation.   Anyway everything went well, take care!   Sincerely,   Will Scarboro     Will Scarboro, Organ Historian American Municipal Pipe Organ Research Project 1996 OHS E.

(I'm sure you did a much finer job of it than I would have!!) Kudos, too, for pulling it off while feeling the effects of a cold. Best wishes for a speedy recovery, and also for the rest of the "finals week"!!!   Just think -- only a few more days and you'll have a (well deserved, I'm sure) VACATION!!!   Cheers!   Tim

My favorite recollection of a jury was the one at UHouston on which I played the Franck E-major chorale, Bach Trio Sonata in c-minor, and the Fantasy and Fugue in g-minor--Bach. It was all memorized, and after a few memory slips and a couple of wrong notes, AND a string of expletives!!!, I finally collected myself and completed the jury. Later in the cafeteria, one of the faculty members on the jury approached me and told me that he really enjoyed my playing that day. I was shocked and said he must be kidding, but he said, "I know it was a little rough at the beginning, but after you offered that little 'prayer' it went OK." ;-)   bruce cornely ~:~:~ rohrschok8@webtv.net gainesville, florida
