You might also like to visit our website at = www.uua.org. Some have simply said that we resulted from the minority report of the = Church Councils. Specific dates are the burning of Michael Servetus at the stake by the Calvanists in 1556. The first synod of anti-trinitarian churches in 1565, and the decree of religious freedom by the Transylvanian Diet in 1600.

Or is this organ, perhaps, an organ with a number of stops, like a six stop Moller Artiste of years gone by?   No registrational aids? No couplers? For years I played on a 13 rank organ (32 stops and couplers) without any pistons.... Yes, it *can* be done.   The organ only had a sfz. and Gt. to Pedal reversible, plus a crescendo pedal--- The sfz. worked; but the Great to Pedal reversible could not be depended on (read: the Gt. to Ped. reversible was moody ---it reversed when only when it wanted to)   And yes, if you play a verse of a hymn or part of a canticle without the pedal, the pedal will be noticed when you start using it again.... A good suggestion!         Best wishes to all,     Morton Belcher Pipe chat

Hewitt from yhe collection, and the file immediately came on to my monitor using VuePro (a graphics viewing software that I have on my computer). I then was able to print it with no changes to the size of the page as seen on the monitor. Simply by pointing to the PRINT button and one click! All very = successful, and really simple.   By the way, "French Air" by W. Hewitt is the nursery rhyme tune to "Baa = Baa Blacksheep"!   Hope this helps,   Bob Conway ...

AMEN!!!!! I didn't play the hymns catholic enough for one catholic church = I played at.   >My experience of Lutherans is limited.   I was born and raised Missouri Synod Lutheran, talk about the "Frozen Chosen." You have to get the pastor's permission to take Communion or do just about anything else in his church. However, they'll take your = offering just the same.     _______________________________________________________________ Get Free Email and Do More On The Web. Visit http://www.msn.com
