There were six ... we chose the Nativity, the Baptism of Christ, and "Come Unto Me" on the one side, and the Last Supper, the Crucifixion and the Resurrection on the other.   Now, this is a church that has inclusive language down to a science. Of course, the obvious question came up: how to represent Jesus. Rev. David Farrell, the pastor at the time, pointed out that it was a proper inquiry in speculative theology to ask whether the risen, glorified Christ embodied both male and female; BUT, he was male in his earthly incarnation, the windows were about THAT (except for the Resurrection) and you have to have believable images in order to tell the story. End of discussion.   Cheers,   Bud   P.S. - I wanted men and women in the Last Supper window ... I got voted down. We don't KNOW that there weren't women present, now do we???

I have always used the word "recital" to imply a memorized program. I can hardly justify calling an organ program, where the performer has music on the console, a "recital" in the purist sense of the word. And, since you may have as many as 100 or more pipes all speaking at the same time, I'd say that is "concert". Neil

But not end of story! What happened with the design of the Resurrection window. The familiar "face of Jesus" has always caused me to wonder if we would miss His return if He didn't look like that. (I know better of course... now!). Although a part of me has always derived comfort in being able to look into a "face".   bruce cornely cremona84000@webtv.net

(back) Subject: Re: Spencer Blower Question -Is there any way I determine StaticPressure with... From: ORGANUT@aol.com Date: Sun, 7 Mar 1999 23:34:56 EST   Richard,   The static pressure and CFM of a blower depend on several factors. The rpm , number of vanes on an impeller, number of impellers,diameter of impellers and gap between the impeller (fan wheel) and the volute (baffle). The last spencer blower I rebuilt was a two HP, 1800 rpm, two impeller unit. It delivers 15 inches of static pressure while operating 5 ranks, percussions, swell shades and relay. This blower originally produced 11 inches of static. By decreasing the clearance between the two impellers and the baffles to 1/8 inch, the static went to 12.5 inches. This simple procedure increases both static pressure and CFM by reducing sneak by of air between the impeller and baffle. Precision balancing of the rotor assembly will incease the RPM slightly. An imbalanced rotor is converting rotational energy into vibrational energy and wasting efficiency. Incidentally this blower was running at a slip frequency of 1725 RPM even though the motor is rated at 1800 (no load) RPM. I bought an adjustable frequency single phase to 3 phase converter for this blower. By increasing the output frequency slightly, I raised the motor RPM to 1795 and the static went from 12.5 inches to 15 inches. As you can see, there are a number of variables which affect the efficiency of a blower,RPM being primary.   The same results can be achieved by adding more impellers(stages) to a slower running blower.   The opposite effect can be achieved if one wishes to use a larger blower for a smaller application such as powering a low pressure classic organ. The easiest way to do this is to increase the spacing between the impellers and baffles. This will decrease static pressure and also cfm. Most blowers are pressure sensitive to RPM and volume sentive to fan wheel diameter. However,for a given size fan wheel, increasing RPM will increase both pressure and volume with an added demand for HP.   Hope this helps you some.   Later, Phil L.    
(back) Subject: Last week and Today... From: Kevin Cartwright <kevin1@alaweb.com> Date: Sun, 07 Mar 1999 22:44:57 -0600   Last week I was informed that I was to begin playing with pay at the local First Baptist Church (2/12 Estey), on Sunday NIGHTS. This quenches my thirst for a steady source of income. I'll probably still have to get a job at the golf course, grocery store, film rental store, gas station, you fill in the blank (no, no theatres of any sort here in Greenville...)   Also, Samford College (Birmingham, AL) is offering me a nice scholarship if I major in organ...and more if I play in the concert band. Samford person on this list, were YOU the one who wanted to contact me? (I remember a Samford person being on an e-mail list.)   Today, I played my first Episcopal service at St. Thomas Episcopal Church, Greenville, Alabama (2/5 Möller). It went off without a hitch, but I admit there were two places where I didn't know if I was supposed to start playing or not. They sang the "Ash Grove" as the recessional, even though it was not in the hymnal. The rector DID maker it known that I have a pipeorgan in my home. "..., who has a MAGNIFICENT pipeorgan in his home,..."   Veraciously,   Kevin Cartwright The "Mad Organist," whom everyone watches through the window as he plays at night; whilst they can see inside... kevin1@alaweb.com   PS: "And the happy Vox Humana 8' now shows its 'cutesy-wutesy' little resonators over the window sill..."        
(back) Subject: Additions... From: Kevin Cartwright <kevin1@alaweb.com> Date: Sun, 07 Mar 1999 22:28:47 -0600   I am now the proud owner of a Möller 8' Vox Humana... This is the second in a long line of additions to my 2/3 (now 2/4) Wicks. The next additions are two extentions: one to extend my 4' string (TC when drawn at 8') to the full 8' (w/Möller Viole 8'), and an 8' extention to my principal 4' in the same manner (w/Möller Violin Diapason 8' -12 notes, of course). After that will more than likely come the 49 note 8' (TC) celeste from the same string rank from which I am robbing the low octave for the extention.   The Vox Humana is going to be operated from the "Oboe 8'" stop, replacing the current compound Oboe (string 8', flute 2 2/3'). The chest is not winded yet, and the rackboard not fully modified, but I pulled a few of my strings, and placed a few random vox notes on my main chest, and found they have a nice theatre vox sound (especially surprising on 3.5" wind). The Vox is going on a former string chest of 73 notes. The Vox Humana 8' is presiding over notes 13-73. I am placing the extention to my 8' string on the lower 12 notes. With some drilling of the treble reeds' toe holes and some console and chest wiring, I'll have the things working. I bought a seperate 12 note chest for my diapason extention, and it will stay in the attic until the Vox project is finished. The 12 pipe extention is still about a 5-hour drive away from me anyway... The diapason extention will operate off static wind with a concussion bellow/winker/etc...   The entire project is worth about $600 without organ tech labor, which is traded in an account/tab system. After this, I doubt I will be adding the electronic package anytime soon.   For now,   Kevin Cartwright Greenville, Alabama Owner, Wicks Opus# 1585, now 4 whole ranks...

This is my point of view, but I believe that each individual is a unique expression (image) of God (spiritual sense) and that that includes both masaculne and feminine qualities (not talking physical attributes). Some men don't express much of the feminine qualities (love, tenderness, for example) and some women express more masculine qualities. Everyone is unique but, in my sense, a complete expression as God is both masculine and feminine.   Jason
