(back) Subject: Re: The Lost Chord From: Myosotis51@aol.com Date: Tue, 25 May 1999 20:19:33 EDT   I have an organ version of Arthur Sullivan's "The Lost Chord." It's in a book called FAMILIAR ORGAN CLASSICS, puclished in 1940 by Broadcast Music Inc, NYC. I don't know the copyright restrictions on this... would it be OK to photocopy? The piece is 4pp long.   Vicki Ceruti Myosotis51@aol.com   ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~     In a message dated 5/25/99 12:49:39 PM Eastern Daylight Time, budchris@earthlink.net writes:   << I play it out of an old vocal collection ... "50 Sacred Songs You Love To Sing" or something like that. I vaguely recall it being in a VERY old organ collection when I was in high school (back when dinosaurs roamed the fertile plains), but the book is long-gone, as is the title. I'm sure one of the on-line music stores could find an arrangement for you. Cheers, Bud CHERCAPA@aol.com wrote: > Dear Bud, Do you know where I can get a copy of the Lost Chord.

(back) Subject: Polyphones, etc. From: Bud/burgie <budchris@earthlink.net> Date: Tue, 25 May 1999 22:16:49 -0700   The Holtkamp polyphone at Christ Church Cathedral, Cincinnati, has been replaced by an electronic 32' Bourdon, I think. They also added some full-length chorus reeds to the Swell. The cathedral is closed for two years for a complete rebuilding/redecorating ... I don't know if that includes moving the organ out of the swallow's nest on the north side and putting it with the console and choir in the east end, behind the altar. They've already ripped out the big ugly blond oak 1950s divided choir stalls.   Cheers,   Bud   ManderUSA@aol.com wrote:   > In a message dated 5/25/99 5:20:53 PM Eastern Daylight Time, > budchris@earthlink.net writes: > > << isn't Temple > Church's organ a big Compton unit organ? >> > > Certainly, St. Bride's, Fleet Street is a remarkable example of the breed. > > Those big derived pedal cornets as well as the Polyphones were used by Walter > Holtkamp Senior.
