Most of the stuff in that book isn't that = hard to learn (save for the Widor). What else do you want to know?

Anything that has an 1893 copyright notice is definitely in the public domain, at least in the US and probably everywhere else. 1893, BTW, is also the year of Gounod's death.   Carlo, if you still want this, please send me your snail-mail address.

But then again: with the video music rack and the piston sequencer and the midi recorders we have available - let's just record all our music for a month and take a LONG vacation?   We must start to ask the question: Are we adding/designing contraptions to =   our organs for the sake of musicality and performance or are we doing it because we are LAZY? Stop and think about it for a moment...... if we = have gotten that disenchanted with playing the organ for churches I suggest getting a new job!   MHO,   The Maitre   ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com

(back) Subject: Moller Experts From: prswank@impop.bellatlantic.net Date: Mon, 20 Sep 1999 21:56:01 -0400   I have been asked by a local church which has a 1928 Moller 2 manual unit organ to recommend someone to give the organ an objective examination to see what condition it is in (leather, electrical, pneumatic, relays, etc). They know that there are some problems with the organ and want to have an overall view so they can devise a long range plan for the repair and regular maintenance of the organ, and possibly some additions to it. This organ is located in the suburbs of Baltimore, Maryland, so the person would have to be from the general mid-atlantic area PA, MD,VA,DC,DE,NJ. Does anyone on the list have someone to recommend to conduct such an objective assessment of a Moller? Naturally, we will have the assessment of the regular maintainer as well. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.   You may put the information on the list, or you might email me off-list if you prefer. We are not now looking for someone to give an estimate on doing the work, just to conduct an assessment. The estimates will be handled in the next phase of the long-range plan. Feel free to forward this request to others you feel may be helpful. Thanks, Paul R. Swank prswank@bellatlantic.net

(back) Subject: Baldwin organs From: "Carlo Pietroniro" <concert_organist@hotmail.com> Date: Mon, 20 Sep 1999 23:58:38 EDT   Greetings,   there are 2 Baldwins that I play on a regular basis. One's a 1959 model 5A and the other's a 1955 model 5. They're basically = the same, but the 1959 has seperate expression, more stops, more couplers, a light vibrato (as opposed to just med. and full) and a mercury switch instead of a standard on/off switch. I norticed something about one of the =   stops that these 2 models share. On the 1955, there's a Clarion 4' on the GREAT. On the 1959, the Clarion 4' is on the SWELL. Even though they're = the same stop, the one on the '55 sounds a lot more shrill than the '59. There =   are other stops that they share, but this one in particular really stands out. Anyone play both these models? On the '55, the Dolce Cornet on the SWELL is nice, I assume it's an 8-foot pitch. Other changes from the '55 = to the '59 is the changing of the SWELL Flute 4' to an Orch. Flute 4', adding =   the Clarion 4' to the SWELL, adding a SWELL to SWELL 4' (hurray!), = changing the GREAT Clarabella 8' to a Flute 8' (what's the big difference?), = removing the GREAT Violina 4' and adding a Rohr Flute 4', changing the GREAT = Trumpet 8' to a Tuba 8' (yay!), adding SWELL to GREAT 16' and 4'...........plus adding 2-foot speaking stops in both divisions. Some of the stops that are =   the same between the 2 models sound the same, others....not quite. Anyway.......getting back to the question. Anyone play these 2 models, and =   if yes, do you know why the 2 Clarions sound so different?   Carlo   ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com

There are still a lot of Model 5 and 5As out there. Keep the tubes up to snuff and they just keep on going. Compared to some of what = was offered in 1955, the earliest Baldwins certainly weren't the worst.   DeserTBoB
