I think that per-capita, GR has one of the largest concentration of organs of any city its size in the US.   In nearby Ada, home of the world-famous Amway corporation, and practiclaly across the street, is the rather large and new St. Robert of Newminster Catholic church with its Reuter installation. (See cover of the March, 1999 TAO)   >From the stoplist, it looks to be worth checking out.   Going the other way from Grand Rapids, in nearby Marne, Reuter also has installed a somewhat smaller instrument in the modern catholic church there (name escapes me at the moment, although I used to drive by there twice every day on my way to and from work!)   A friend of mine, Shawn Burgess-Keith, owner of Burgess-Keith Pipe Organs curates these instruments, and he could probably make arrangements as to who to contact to see them. He's been in Florida, but should be on the way home by now. Try writing him at mailto:<bkpipeorgans@juno.com>   Faithfully,   Richard Schneider, President SCHNEIDER PIPE ORGANS, Inc.

Would any of you like to arrange a gathering at some place and time so we could meet a few of our list friends and share some convention time?   Looking forward to a great week, Margo

Sorry, Bruce, I'm a man of decorum, I like to keep a service orderly. Anyway, these forms are quite revealing. Okay, the answers: The #1 hymn picked last sunday was: "In the Garden"; #2 was "How Great Thou Art."   There were several requests for "Here I Am, Lord." I can hear you all now, "Man, I should have guessed that!!"   I am signing of the list until I return from the AGO Region I convention next week. I truly enjoy the stimulating discussions here. God's peace to you all.   Neil, AAGO, MMus Barnegat, NJ USA
