Presumably the usual organist is capable of playing the instrument, at least after a fashion, so it cannot defy the ingenuity of man to be able to.   First I would point out that if it has six stops, these are registrational aids. You can push them in and pull them out to change the registration. It is possible of course, that the sliders have swelled up with the weather and part of the "being in a mess" of the organ is that one or two of them will not move. This will limit your registrational possibilities somewhat, but is something you will have to live with. You did not say whether there is a swellbox; if so, this will greatly help your ability to engineer crescendi and diminuendi, which is half the battle. If you are not used to moving the stops by hand, you may not be able to change stops during the verses of hymns, etc., and may only be able to do so between verses. This is a minor consideration, especially since you will still be able to change manuals if you need to make a change.   Perhaps you could specify what "being in a mess" is a little more. If the action is excessively heavy, you might want to avoid voluntaries with rapid passages, but again being able to suit the music you play to the size and condition of the instrument is one of the marks of a true professional. If any notes are actually dead or ciphering this would be more of a problem. It might be possible to pull the offending pipes if there are ciphers, but otherwise they might be something you need to live with. If there are minor runs in the chest, they are usually not too noticeable if you start by pulling the big stops that use the most wind first (e.g. the 8' Open Diapason) and only pulling the upperwork (e.g. the Mixture -- or perhaps in this case the 4' Harmonic Flute <g>) afterwards.   I hope this helps,   John Speller, St. Louis, MO

And how singularly useless their discussion !!   Mark Checkley.     -----Original Message----- From: KriderSM@aol.com <KriderSM@aol.com> To: pipechat@pipechat.org <pipechat@pipechat.org> Date: Saturday, June 12, 1999 12:57 Subject: Bigoted nonconformists     >I'd like to aproach this subject from another point of view.

Swell to Great Great Stops: Open Diapason 8' Mixture 2rnks Gemshorn 4' (they are in that order) Swell Stops: Stopped Diapason 8' Fifteenth 2' Gedack 4' (again, they are in that order)   Tremulant (which affects the entire organ, and shakes the whole thing = nearly to pieces!) Pedal Stop: 16' Bourdon     The reason I say that it is a mess, is because there is usually something ciphering (last sevice there, the organist had to take out 8 pipes during the service), the sound is quite nice, but it is second hand and was never voiced for this church. It is in totally the wrong place to accompany the choir, and my organ teacher hates doing services at the church!   The music is: Voluntary: Voluntary 1 - Stanley/James Introit: If ye love me - Tallis Canticles: Purcell in Gm Anthem: O Sing Joyfully - I can't remember Voluntary: Fanfare - Leighton (which is what I put down before I realised that it was at St P's - my organ teacher says that he wants to improvise something now).   Richard.

After service in an LCA = Lutheran church many years ago, 20+ years in a fundamentalist pentecostal = church,now I'm at a Missouri Synod Lutheran Church. They have accepted me without reservation, no questions about my "status" for communion. In fact = they're more open than any other group I've associated with. And they're that way with everyone.   Like anything else, it's the local group I think that determines the "flavor".   Dennis

I am delighted with the outpouring of responses to my query for short organ preludes of good quality. But please bear in mind that I am not looking for "easy" stuff! I can play the hard stuff (been playing the K-E Nun danket since I was a boy). And I have ample practice time. Maybe you're confusing me with somebody else.   I am grateful for the repertoire suggestions. And I especially like Bruce's idea of excerpting masterpieces. That will be fun! Speaking of harmonium collections, I just received from Brenda Durden's Frantic Organist Shop Andre Fleury's collection _Vingt-quatre pieces_. Some of them are really beautiful, and they all evoke that beautiful French mysticism, that combination of a feeling of eternity and of a peaceful summer dimanche apres-midi after a leisurely multi-course meal en famille that you just don't get from composers of other nationalities. Most that = I have had the time to time come in at exactly two minutes.   R. Runyon
