It did take a week or so, but once I got the hang of it, I find it difficult to type on a regular one. Y'see, there's quite a bit of space between the shoulders, here, and for me to get into position for a regular keyboard, I practically have to contort my wrists.   Dennis    
(back) Subject: Re: Louis Vierne.... From: "rollin smith" <rollinsmithv@worldnet.att.net> Date: Fri, 7 May 1999 16:27:24 -0400   "In my spoken program notes before I play Vierne, I tell them that he died right after vespers by collapsing on all 4 keyboards with full organ sounding."   Vierne died on Wednesday evening (Vespers are on Sunday afternoon) in the middle of a recital. He finished playing the Tryptique at 9:15 (the recital had begun at 8:30). He set up his stops and began an improvisation on three liturgical themes. His foot slipped onto low E of the pedalboard at precisely 9:20. Everyone thought it was the first note of the improvisation on "Alma Redemptoris Mater."   The Notre-Dame console has five keyboards--not four.   Of the known sources that describe the event, none gives the volume of the single pedal note.   Rollin Smith        
(back) Subject: Re: Louis Vierne....response on "last moments" From: GRSCoLVR@aol.com Date: Fri, 7 May 1999 17:04:14 EDT   Mr. Smith--- Thanks for the final (it would seem) elucidation on the death of a famous organist/composer. It makes me wonder, tho, why his close associates and especially those near the console took notes of just what happened. But then he was a "famous" figure. If I could "go" that way,,I think I would be pleased, in my last moments. <G> Kind Regards, ---Roc

From: "ray ahrens" <ray_ahrens@hotmail.com> Date: Fri, 07 May 1999 14:47:32 PDT   I've read that Vierne died while sustaining low C on the pedal at the beginning of an improvisation.   Ray       _______________________________________________________________ Get Free Email and Do More On The Web.

The spacing between the keys on my Microsoft Natural (first generation, not the new smaller Elite) is wider than the keys of the IBM regular board I had been using, which in turn was wider than another normal keyboard I have to use frequently (what a torture device!). It took me a week or so to get most of the keys' exact positions familiar, but that mischievous backspace key took about a month before I could reliably hit it without looking. When I stopped using the IBM board daily (due to pain it caused in my forearms after extended periods) I was averaging about 65wpm touch typing (according to my copy of Mavis Beacon). Now that I'm used to the Natural, I manage 80wpm easily without my forearms going nuts. I've got to say the Natural keyboard was the best $100 I'd spent in a long time, followed closely by my mutant trackball, a Logitech Trackman Marble FX. Kind of extreme at $150, but it feels good.   Have fun! Ad ;->

(back) Subject: Re: Rodgers organs + Leslie speakers From: bnorth@intergate.bc.ca (Bob North) Date: Fri, 7 May 1999 15:20:33 -0700 (PDT)   Years ago, I played a large Hammond "D" with two Leslie speakers. The sound was truly awesome. If you put the Leslies on "Chorale" (slow speed) the sound was like reverb, only a better, wider sound. You haven't got much to loose by trying it, if you don't like the sound, you don't have to use it, and you could sell the Leslie at a profit. And who knows, the tremulo (fast speed) may give your Rodgers a sound you might even enjoy. If you go ahead, could you let the list know how you made out. Its an interesting project. GOOD LUCK!!!               d >Carlo Pietroniro wrote: > >> greetings, >> >> Now, before anyone cringes at the thought of it, let me >> explain.

(back) Subject: hooking-up the Leslie... From: "Carlo Pietroniro" <concert_organist@hotmail.com> Date: Fri, 07 May 1999 19:33:00 EDT   greetings,   I called the man who used to be my organ technician, and he doesn't know if he'll be able to hook the Leslie up to my Rodgers. Before I bought the Rodgers, I had a 1959 Baldwin 5 A. It had two huge tone cabinets (the two 15" speakers that were in each cabinet were on the tops of them pointing up, thus causing the sound to project towards the ceiling). This man works at one of the local electronic shops and does most of the maintanance on the Baldwin, Hammond and other organs here in Montreal. He's coming over tomorrow to have a look-see and tell me what'll be involved. I'll let you all know what happens. I don't know what model Leslie it is, but it stands about 4 feet high.   Carlo     ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com

But the thing I found interesting is that I can use them on computers and on organ keyboards with little or no problem, but if I play on a piano, it aggravates the pain, particularly in the right hand. I think it has to do with the stronger attack that's required on a piano than on the organ/computer keyboards.       < W J Morton wjm@pacbell.net > No trees were harmed by the production of this message; however, a rather large number of electrons were somewhat inconvenienced.

(back) Subject: Wedding programme... From: "Carlo Pietroniro" <concert_organist@hotmail.com> Date: Sat, 08 May 1999 02:03:49 EDT   greetings,   I'm playing a wedding tomorrow at my church, and the couple requested to have the choir sing. I jumped at the chance to show off the choir I direct. I'm organist/choir director at a Catholic parish and we're considered to be one of the best choirs in Montreal (90 members, SATB (and most of them read music)). We have 4 leaders-of-song, alternating from week to week, so the congregation doesn't get bored of seeing the same person. I find that men make better leaders-of-song/cantors than women. Anyway, I want to show all of you the music the couple chose. They really wanted nice music, and I think they have excellent taste.   Bridal Entrance: Fanfare by Lemmens Psalm: Ave Maria by Gounod (SATB choir with soprano obbligato) Gospel Acclamation: Celtic Alleluia Offertory: Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring by Bach (SATB choir) Communion: Panis Angelicus by Franck (SATB with sop. obblig.) Signing of register: Morning Has Broken, Bish arr. (SATB choir) Recessional: Finale from Symphony No. 6 by Vierne   It should be quite nice. So nice, I wish it was my wedding!!!   Carlo     ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com

NOT From: ComposerTX@aol.com Date: Sat, 8 May 1999 02:53:45 EDT   Sand Lawn, my fave bride story, herewith: She called and said, "My vocalist said that she CAN sing the song you suggested for the Lighting of the Unity Candle; but she says you have to transpose it down an octave." I said, "Sure, but that will cost extra." Then I told her why I was pissing myself laughing. Danny
