(back) Subject: 22K gold Steinway for sale From: JCarington@aol.com Date: Fri, 12 Feb 1999 07:56:55 EST   don't want this too be too off-topic, but I have a piano for sale that is a perfect compliment to any ornate theatre console.   It's a 22 kt-gold, 1905 Steinway 6'1" Model A Louis XV Artcase Grand with perfect ivories. It's not just "trimmed" in gold mind you. The entire cabinet, fallboard, lid, legs are all covered with gold. It's truly one-of-a-kind. It's $275,000, which is probably the value of the gold alone. It was originally built for the Thompson family of Cincinnati.   Seeing as a recent Steinway artcase that WASN'T covered in gold brought $1.2 million at auction, it is apparent that Steinways are developing a following among art collectors and their ken. The gold ought to just cement its value as a unique objet d'art.   If anyone is interested, please contact me. The piano is located near Chicago.   Did I say it plays beautifully?   John Carington Chesterton, Indiana

They are new reprints. They also have a few used ones for sale.   If money is an issue, then the suggestion to check with the churches & monasteries is a good one.

(back) Subject: fauxbourdons? From: Bud/burgie <budchris@earthlink.net> Date: Fri, 12 Feb 1999 11:26:28 -0800   Hi, it's the Organisticus Esotericus again ... does anybody know of a place where Renaissance fauxbourdons are COLLECTED (alternate verses of psalms, Magnificats mostly) ... I know they're scattered through the collected works of Palestrina, Viadana, etc., but I don't have access to those, and in any case it's a herculean task to ferret them out ... I have a few off the backs of old Burgess Liturgical Choir Books, and a few in Father Rossini's various collections, but that's it.   I found one book at Amazon.com, but the precis doesn't indicate whether it's theoretical writings or examples ... I need examples.   BTW, I REALLY wish I were in a position to offer something in return to listmembers for all their EXCELLENT help in finding things, but I fear my library is useless outside the very small corner of the liturgical world that I inhabit. But feel free to ask, PLEASE!   Cheers,   Bud-the-Dinosaur

(back) Subject: Pipes wanted- NYC area. From: J S VANDERSTAD <dcob@nac.net> Date: Fri, 12 Feb 1999 22:12:27 -0500   Dear Listers,   I am in the lookout for the following ranks in the NYC area. Due to an extremely busy schedule I can only travel within a 200 mile radius of NYC.   All pipework should be of medium scale, wood or metal (where applicable), around 3-1/2" wind pressure.   16' Leiblich Gedeckt 44 pipes (pedal) 8' Principal 61 pipes 8' Doppleflute 61 pipes 8' Gedeckt 61 pipes 8' Gamba 61 pipes 8' Gamba Celeste 61 pipes 4' Principal 61 pipes 4' Rohr Flute 61 pipes 2-2/3' Nazard 61 pipes 2' Principal 61 pipes 2' Wald Flute 61 pipes 1-3/5' Tierce 61 pipes 8' Oboe 61 pipes 8' Clarinet 61 pipes 8' Vox Humana 61 pipes   It would be very nice if all ranks could fit under an 8' ceiling. Space limitations, unfortunately, are posing a problem for us in this case.   Mr. Vanderstad

I guess we have to amend that to Baptists as well (at least as organ solos ... grin!).   Nope, sorry, I don't have the Woollen ... several versions by Rossini, and a fauxbourdon version by Yr. Humble Servant, but no Woollen. Have you tried Scott Foppiano at the National Shrine of the Little Flower in Royal Oak, MI? If he's not on this list, try organchat.   Cheers,   Bud   > >
