As I recall the contest was to be between the great JSB and Frenchman Louis Marchand (1669-1722). At the last minute Marchand took fright and chickened out. Scarlatti and Handel did once have such a contest, in which the result was kind of a draw in which Scarlatti was judged best on the harpsichord and Handel on the organ. The two left as friends and remained so throughout their lives. Mendelssohn was an enormous fan of Bach, so there would never have been a feud with him. Anyway, Mendelssohn lived later -- from 1809 to 1847, whereas Bach lived from 1685 to 1750. In between came the English composer John Christmas Beckwith (1750-1809)!   John Speller

The volume contains pieces edited/arranged by Bob Hebble, long-time friend and arranger for Virgil Fox.   The Dethier "Adeste Fidelis" is in there, along with a number of other wonderful arrangements for organ.   You won't need to trade anything to get the music, but, as one who's worked it up in the past, be ready to start on it right away, if you want to have it ready before the new millenium.

I think there are at least 3 or 4 additional pieces which I'm missing, but, hopefully, you get the idea.   I recommend the volume highly. Well edited and very nice transcriptions. I bought it for the Dethier, and have been quite pleased with everything else represented there.   Mark       Mark Huth Rodgers Instruments, LLC mhuth@rodgers.rain.com http://www.rodgersinstruments.com   ==========================   I can't find truth, only what is not truth. --- Socrates

(back) Subject: Thalben-Ball's Pagan. Vrtns. From: Randolph Runyon <runyonr@muohio.edu> Date: Fri, 30 Apr 1999 13:39:52 -0400   In George Thalben-Ball's Variations on a Theme by Paganini, how should the drone in the ninth variation be played? A footnote in the score reads: "fixed drone or sustainer." What the h. is a "sustainer"? Were it on one of the manuals I can easily see holding notes down with business cards (the one the organ tuner leaves on the console, for example), but how would you hold pedals down? Though since the registration seems drawn from the manuals anyway, I suppose you could just hold the two notes down that way from the relevant manual. But in that case you could just as well hold them down with your hand.   In the next (and last variation), by the way, the tenth, the hands do come into play.   Professor Randolph Paul Runyon Dept. of French, Miami University Oxford, OH 45056 runyonr@muohio.edu

(back) Subject: Re: chest problems From: RMaryman@aol.com Date: Fri, 30 Apr 1999 23:06:43 EDT   Lamar -   You need to get under the chest and check for leakage of the stop action valve that exhausts the channel above the pitmans. when you energize the magnet, you should hear a noise "thwop" as the valve dumps the stop action channel. after that initial noise check to see that ther is not any air blowing back thru the channel and exhausting out the valve. also check that the valve is properly adjusted for the correct amount of motion (about the thickness of a nickel) and that the valves are seating properly. If you can hear or feel air blowing back thru the stop action valve while the magnet reamins energized (stop turned on) then you may need to replace the pitmans in that chest. I have had to do this in a couple of chests built in the mid 70's when Moller was messing about with the thickness of the pitmans. they used some thin pitmans which have a tendency to warp, especially in high-humidity situations.   Try that and let me know what you find.   Rick Maryman Staunton VA
