(back) Subject: "Shape-Notes" "Klavier Scribo" From: JKVDP@aol.com Date: Wed, 24 Feb 1999 14:35:53 EST   Because shape notes were being mentioned along with the "Tonic - Sol - Fa" system, I wonder if any one on the list uses the Dutch "Klavier Scribo" (sp?). I have a few Dutch organ compositions in this system in which the notes are placed vertically on the page with several systems of vertical staffs of three lines and two lines (for the black keys). Actually some years ago I saw an American hymnal which had been printed in that system. Are there any users of Klavier Scribo out there? Is it still used in Holland Aida?

One of the chaps who worked there is Dutch.   I first came across it at an organ recital given by a Dutch/Canadian organbuilder. I was near enough to see the music on the console, and knew something was different. He kindly showed me his music, and I realized, after seeing it and discussing it with my friend at the music store, that it (the system) was the cause of his slipping into some stange and unwanted keys, in one case, never actually recovering before the end of a piece. I am afraid a few of us in the audience got some unstoppable giggles. The system is great for transposing, I expect, being basically a diagram of where your fingers fall, but if you forget what key you are supposed to be in, there is nothing to tell you.   Cheers,   Malcolm Wechsler Mander Organs, Ltd. - U.

(back) Subject: Where is the Salisbury Press? From: JKVDP@aol.com Date: Wed, 24 Feb 1999 18:38:01 EST   I am trying to find The Salisbury Press formerly of Newton New Jersey. A few years ago they reprinted "Fairest Lord Jesus" by Eugen Hildach, arranged by David Mc K Williams for Soprano solo, Mixed voices AND ORGAN. The telephone number listed on my copy of music was out of service and directory info had no listing for Salisbury Press or Schoolhouse productions. Originally it was published by HW Gray. If anyone has 27 copies or so to sell, I'd be happy to hear from you. Jerry in Seattle

What was the Don Bosco College campus is now Sussex County Community College. It was purchased by the county from the Selecian Monks (sp?) around ten to 15 years ago. The chapel is now used as the theatre- still with the original pews and stained glass windows (figure that out). The chapel (now the theatre) houses a 20 rank pipe organ, which is in use for several hours daily even though the college does not have an established music department. I figured that part would be of significance to the list. If anyone is interested in the specs. let me know. Anyway, I will be willing to try to find out the information for you via the music store in town. I will let you know what comes out of it.
