Perhaps had I responded earlier in the day yesterday I might have included those. Or perhaps, I presupposed that Mr. Pinel had solid techique to begin with, given his encounter w/ Mr. Cleobury. Needless to say, I am tickled that you thought enough of my answer to respond.

Then, the real organists are battling depression because they are not appreciated for what they play, due to the "Redneckville" mentality that clouds the whole Southeastern scene except for large cities. Therefore, real organists wind up working in Super Foods or Winn Dixie (grocery stores) or in gas stations or McDonald's, because the "fakes" are out there...taking up the organist jobs like carbon monoxide in blood.   Jobjess-- Kevin C.      
(back) Subject: Bach Editions From: Bruce Behnke <behnke@lvcm.com> Date: Fri, 26 Feb 99 09:16:08 -0000   I have several inherited volumes of the Dupre Bach edition. I find the editing to be overwhelming and not very useful. I spend a few minutes entering a new piece into Finale 98. I then learn the piece from my own "Urtext" edition without any markings at all. I can frequently eliminate page turns or at least put them in a manageable place. I find the process of copying the music to be very helpful as a beginning study of a new piece.   Bruce [one or the other]

Stapel" <pstapel@spectra.net> Date: Sat, 27 Feb 1999 02:40:09 -0500   This post also refers a bit to the Dynamische Organs thread   Walker Techonologies of Zion PA has been doing what you are dreaming of, only even more sophisticatedly...If you haven't heard a Walker setup, you will be amazed ..they are often literally recording EACH note of a real rank ( a LOT of Skinner, etc) recording its starts, holding and stop sounds on digital chips (could not have been done until the recent huge expansion in memory capability), making these sound available through high end computers, amplifiers and speakers ( lots of them) and resulting in instruments which can't really be called electronic anymore, even if that is what oeprates them. I have delighted in fooling some of our most prominent fine-eared organists through a WICKS we have in our area of up-state New York... Care to listen yourself -- call!! Walker makes the BEST of the digital re-productions around -- it's not cheap but definately a LOT cheaper than pipe equivelents ---when the budget isn't there for all pipe, a combination of pipe and digital works very well.   Of course, automatic tuning plus thousands of other possibilities because of the digital controling system make it possible to do almost anything one wants to pay for!!       Paul Stapel Paul F.

(back) Subject: Fw: New Job From: "VEAGUE" <dutchorgan@svs.net> Date: Sat, 27 Feb 1999 04:20:36 -0500   Would these so-called " Redneckville " gospel churches REALLY appreciate good music ? That's debateable. I doubt if any Bach or like-wise quality offerings would move and shake them. We're talking two different animals here. City-slickers ( as myself ) enjoy the " higher- brow " music, and all too many prefer the good ol' foot stompin' variety.   Rick     -----Original Message----- From: Kevin Cartwright <kevin1@alaweb.com> To: PipeChat <pipechat@pipechat.org> Date: Friday, February 26, 1999 11:32 PM Subject: Re: New Job     >Jason D.
