From: "Carlo Pietroniro" <concert_organist@hotmail.com> Date: Tue, 11 May 1999 01:29:55 EDT   ............there's an electronic pedal stop on the Crystal Cathedral organ (Contra Bourdon 32'). According to the theory, does that mean that the Hazel Wright organ is not a pipe organ, but rather a combination pipe/electronic organ???????????????????????????   Carlo     ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com

I guess that makes this organ a combo pipe/electronic.......   Carlo     ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com

Some "rural" folk expect me to do a wedding for 2 jars of preserves and a sweet potato pie. The more "urban" folk are surprised I'm so cheap.   Once did a big funeral for a prestigious member of the community. I went to extreme measures, just for the sake of wanting to do a good job ( and I did ). I received a check for $15. The funeral homes in the area usually charge a "fee" for music...and for those whom have pre-planned funerals (made 20 years ago) they stick with the amount set aside for the music in 1979. I would have preferred the sweet potato pie.   For Receptions (piano), I charge a flat fee of $50 per hour. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Mark Reeves, Director of Music, Organist First United Methodist Church Canton, Texas +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Redman Organ (Op. 10, 1975 * 2/21) - - http://www.angelfire.com/tx/FUMCMusicOrgan/organ1.html FUMC-Canton Homepage - - http://netministries.org/see/churches/ch02328 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Often Funeral Orders of Service too. This takes little time as all the usual hymns and layouts are on a database and can be imported easily without too much typing! Indeed, you can generate a good £60-100 for this service!   Travelling expenses charged @ 50pence per mile if over 5 miles. (more insummer if the air conditioning is on!! - not really!!)     Richard Scott-Copeland Southampton England

Thanks.     Reply:-   And absolutely true. I must phone up and see if the animal is still alive, although my calculations should make it about 19 years old by now. I hope that they have replaced it if it has died and that it doesn't go they way of many church organs and become 'prepared for'. - Just imagine on the console a drawstop labelled "Cat Flap 1' " Of course, it may have had kittens by now and the stop of course should read, Cat Flaps VI-IX rks!!   Heehehehehehhehe!     Richard Scott-Copeland Southampton England
