Prichard is sad to have composed the =   tune when about 20 years of age, or c. 1830.   Rhosymedre (also in the RVW Preludes on Welsh Hymn Tunes) is from the "Original Sacred Music, Compsed and Arranged by the Revd. John Edwards, = B.A. Jesus College, Oxford", c. 1840. The tune was called Lovely at first, and ended with an extended Alleluia.   Now enjoy your Cheerios and get to work! :>)

Anybody knows if the console has been changed?   Another question: Sharp pedals have a curious shape that I have seen in another ancient german organs: anybody knows why?   Thanks, and excuse my poor English, please.   Jorge Gomez      
(back) Subject: RE: PipeChat Digest #1051 - 09/01/99 From: "COLASACCO, ROBERT" <RCOLASACCO@popcouncil.org> Date: Wed, 1 Sep 1999 10:50:48 -0400   Good morning, I have been a lurking, as it were, (I hate that term) member of the list = now for about 3 or 4 months. I was and will again be an organist. Sounds strange, no? Well, 18 years ago I stopped playing the organ and have been sorry ever since but recently the "withdral" got the better of me and I purchased an Johannus organ and await it's delivery. Of course, I'd love = to have a pipe organ but in a small NYC apartment that's not feasible. = Anyway, I didn't really start this message to blab about myself but to ask if it were possible to purchase a rank or two of used pipes--and here's the part y'all gonna jump on me for--to place atop my new electronic instrument = for, well, aesthetic pleasure, shall we say??!! Of course, I'm looking for something inexpensive and probably not functioning or, better, no longer usable. I'd hate to use perfectly usable pipes for display only. That's really all I have to say, except that I have enjoyed being among organists again and very much enjoy most of the discussions on the list. It's interesting to see that nothing new under sun has occurred since I = gave up church work--unfortunately. Thank you for you ears.

(back) Subject: Re: Relays & switches, reeds From: John Vanderlee <jovanderlee@vassar.edu> Date: Wed, 01 Sep 1999 11:01:28 -0500   Hi Paul,   Funny you should ask, I just got back from a physical. The doctor pronounced me in excellent health, no doubt to the chagrin of some but fortunately to the delight of many.   OK, I dug the old article out, and modified it a little:   Look at it, and everything is negotiable..   **********************   1 61 x 21 XY switching matrix, It has 61 magnets to operate a contact bar each which in turn can contact any one of 24 magnet operated contact bars. Looks like it would allow any of 24 stops to be connected to a keyboard. The coils are black, and the contacts are made with wires. Does anyone = know who might have made this device?   It is in very good shape (well... maybe a few bent wires) Looks like it would be great for a home project. Asking $ 200.00   In that same vein we also found 3 Klann (new) gang switches 61,61 and 32 notes respectively. Asking $120 for all three.   The we have a Klann-like affair with two coils each operating a 61 note gang of contacts with a common fixed buss. Used, but needs a little work. $25   And for another $10 we have 4 Allen 15 contact switches non profesionally on a board plus a single contact relay making for 61 notes.     All items FOB, and negotiable. Asking $325 to take it all.   *************************   Take care   John V

I believe it is the Welsh word for "Lovely". We always refer = to > >the hymn as "Hydrofoil".   "Lovely" is an alternate name for the "Rhosymedre" tune (whether that's a translation or not I dunno). I once asked a Welshman to pronounce it and he said, "Ross-meh-DRAY". > "High Fry Doll" also works! But don't say it that way around a = Welshman!

Thus "HUH-vruh-dahl", which is how the same above Welshman said it.   Stan Yoder Pittsburgh
