(back) Subject: What happened to Showcase Publications? From: Adrianne Schutt <maybe@pipcom.com> Date: Fri, 19 Feb 1999 05:11:01 -0800   Does anyone know what happened to Showcase Publications (out of Pasadena, CA), the company behind The Encyclopedia of the American Theatre Organ (volumes 1 through 3)? My father is one of the subscribers listed in volume 3 (by Preston J. Kaufman) and also owns copies of volumes 1 & 2 (by David L. Junchen). Regarding volume 4, he was told by the publisher Dec 15/95 that it would be released in early 1997. On Jan 5/98 the revised release date was "late 1998". When he tried to contact the publisher last week to find out the current status of the book, they seem to have vanished. The phone # is out of service, and city hall, the local chamber of commerce, and telephone directory assistance all have no knowledge of them. I've tried searching the web in umpteen different directions and I keep coming up empty-handed. If anyone happens to know what's going on, I'd love to hear!   Have fun! Ad ;->

And while they stay for the closing hymn, they don't usually stay for the postlude (maybe two dozen stay). Still, I'm not going to complain -- we obviously have it much better than a lot of places, and I thank God for that.   -Adam   Rutherford, NJ USA Free speech online! _/ And as I'm laying bleeding there http://westnet.com/~levins/ ________/ on the asphalt finally I recognize <*> __________________________/ the face of my hibachi dealer who takes off -O / his prosthetic lips and tells me "Everything you know is wrong."

(best way to beat the > rush to the parking lot, i suppose...)   In the old days, the regs said that you had not fulfilled your Mass obligation unless you were present from the time the veil came OFF the chalice (at the Offertory) until the veil went back ON the chalice (AFTER communion). In some parishes, they rang the Sanctus bell once when the veil came off so there'd be no mistake: if you didn't hear the "first bell", you had to hang around for the next Mass (grin).   And most RCs avoided High Mass like the PLAGUE. In my student days at Oberlin, I commuted to Our Lady of the Rosary on the EAST Side of Cleveland (before the freeways were built). We had a standing arrangement that if I was delayed by snow, traffic, etc., Sister Grace would play an Organ Mass (more about THAT later!) at 10:30 and the choir would eat breakfast and come back and sing the High Mass at the "Hangover Mass" (12 noon). Those folks would see the six candles being lit at noon and head for the doors in DROVES, hoping to make it to St. Philomena's or St. Anne's in the Heights in time for their noon LOW Mass.   > Of course, if I had grown up during an age where the closing hymn was > "Immaculate Mary" hacked out every week by Linda Leftfoot, OSB...that'd > probably make me want to ditch as soon as possible also.   A little respect for the good Sisters, please ... particularly Sister Linda of the Order of St. Benedict ... most Benedictines of either sex were very skilled in music and liturgy.   The above-mentioned Sister Grace (Maestra Pieta Philippini ... Religious Teachers of St. Lucy Philippini) was a three-hundred-pound contralto with a voice that would shatter glass at 100 paces ... when she was at Mass, we had congregational participation! She wasn't a great organist ... I remember her coming down from the organ-loft one Sunday and announcing that the organ was "broke" (firebrand Oberlin student that I was, I'd disconnected the trems on the Schantz and taken down the expression shutters), but she knew liturgy and Chant very well. And she could WAIL on "T'adoriam, ostia divina"! (grin). We always got her to lead the singing for the street processions on Corpus Christi and the Assumption.   Cheers,   Bud

I have personally heard and seen his work on old Skinner instruments that he was supposed to have been rebuilt, and I was not impressed at all. The action that he uses contains dirt cheap magnets, which do not work properly or open up enough to let enough air into the pipes. You should have heard all the starving pipes especially in the tenor and bass range. The firm that I have had best experience with when it came to Skinner organs being rebuilt was Dutch Craft Organ Builders based in Lake Wales FL.
