(back) Subject: Danse macabre performance From: Ben Schaffer <benjamin.schaffer@oberlin.edu> Date: Mon, 15 Feb 1999 16:39:00 -0500   For those of you in the Cleveland area, Benjamin Schaffer (that's me, of course) and Daniel Brinson will be performing Camille Saint-Saens's "Danse macabre" in a modification of the duet arrangement of Dickinson and Lockwood. Annie Neary will play the solo violin part.   The performance will take place at Oberlin College at the monthly "Organ Pump." This concert begins on Friday (Feb 19) at midnight; and further, please come aware that this is a concert directed at the plebeian college student, and so the format will be... shall we say, possibly scandalous to some. But the music is still high quality.   -Ben Schaffer

Was it you? If so, I really enjoyed the performance, even though I'm not into "theatre organ" (or any organ that sounds like one, this Schoenstein did).   Chris Mullen   ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com

The *Oxford Companion* adds an alternative German name, the *Wurstfagott* ("Sausage Bassoon"), and adds that the French similarly called the instrument *le cervelas* ("Sausage"). I am grateful to Kevin for making the inquiry, since I had never heard of a Wurstfagott before and think it would be a great name for an organ stop. So far as Rankett vs. Rackett is concerned, I think you pays your money and you makes your choice.   John.

The illustration they give looks like a beer can with a tail, but I suppose that makes it a legitimate name for an organ stop.   Robert Horton - DMA Student, University of Kansas 1603 West 15th St. #207A, Lawrence, KS 66044 http://falcon.cc.ukans.edu/~gemshorn/   "Do not dally with a singing girl, or you will be caught by her tricks."

(back) Subject: Allen C-3 Consoles From: Kevin Cartwright <kevin1@alaweb.com> Date: Mon, 15 Feb 1999 20:11:43 -0600   Can anyone provide me with a stoplist for the Allen C-3 console? I have been offered one free to attach the pipes to my Wicks. The enticement is to simplify adding pipes to my current 3 rank organ. Also, how are the stops arranged on the console? Are they knobs, rockers, or tabs? However, I am still reluctant to switch from my original 1936 Wicks console...   Kevin C. kevin1@alaweb.com
