Dont know if it is still playable. I was there years ago, saw the console but never heard it played. Dave McPeak   Travis Evans wrote:   > I have never seen or heard it in person.

(back) Subject: Re: Oliphant Chuckerbutty From: Oboe32@aol.com Date: Fri, 19 Mar 1999 17:19:28 EST   Gordon Turk has a copy of this piece, and I know that it is really a fun piece to listen to and play! I'd be curious who publishes it, that is if it is still in print!   -pete isherwood

The stalactites must be hollow and they have tiny hammers on them - you can watch them being struck - if you manage to figure out which one is for which note and just happen to be watching it - it is neat though. As for tuning - these are living things and sometimes they break off or the hollow tube closes - therefore no sound or out of tune. The guide explained that you just have to find another stalactite pipe with the right pitch - she didn't explain just how you manage to do that. If you get a chance to see it - it's worth it.   Claire

(back) Subject: Carwithen's last? From: Stanley Lowkis <nstarfil@MediaOne.net> Date: Fri, 19 Mar 1999 23:19:13 -0500   Shirley requested that this be posted to PipeChat:   Concert announcement -   This Sunday, 3/21/99   Music at Abington's Annual Memorial Concert Abington Presbyterian Church 1082 Old York Road Abington, PA 19001   Orchestra: Suite No. 3 - Bach Oratorio Choir, Orchestra, and Organ - "Credo" from "Mass in B Minor" - Bach Oratorio Choir women, organ, violin - "Fugue, Epilogue, and Canzona" - S. Karg-Elert   This final piece in particular is worth the price of admission. It was chosen by Robert Carwithen to be dedicated to the memory of long-time APC organist, Biff Claflin. There is a lot of organ in it, typically Karg-Elert, and the choir is ethereal.   This will probably be the last time Robert Carwithen will be heard in concert, or in church for that matter. After he left Tenth Pres. of Philadelphia, he tried to retire, until the interim organist position opened up at Abington, and he felt led to take the post. He will be leaving that post as of April 25, and plans this time to STAY retired. He will be teaching at Westminster Choir College and Philadelphia College of the Bible for one more year, and then he is looking forward to retirement.   I apologize to this international list for the local nature of this post, but there are folks who subscribe to this list that might be interested.   Thanks for your tolerance.       --Shirley
