They are for sale and OCH has info. As far as the Auditorium itself goes I have contradicting reports about its status. I've heard that it has been torn down. But, I've also heard that its still standing because they ran out of money and can't afford to tear it down right now. So, I'm not really sure what is going = on. Is there anyone near Memphis who could fill us in?   Sincerely,   Will Scarboro   Will Scarboro, Organ Historian American Municipal Pipe Organ Research Project 1996 OHS E.

I'll get the ball rolling. Students had been complaining about the pedal coupler for one note on our little Phelpsavant in the organ studio, so I finally got around to taking a look at it. After tackling some other minor problems, I set about getting the pedal coupler working. Sure enough, all its neighbors worked fine, but high F# seemed stuck...the key couldn't get all the way down. Well, I dismantled nearly the whole undercarriage trying to trace the mechanism (let's hear it for trying to shoehorn an organ into the minimum amount of space), but I finally found the source of the jam...an old dog biscuit wedged into the key action! OK Bruce, fess up.

Paul Roberts thanked us at the start for coming to check out an unknown quantity. Paul is no longer an unknown quantity in the Chicago area. Today he worked that ten ranker and made it sound like one of the big guys. Paul's music is bouncy and joyful and was uplifting to say the least. Contrasting with his bouncy style were some lush ballads which he excecuted with grace and style. This was his first stop on his 11th US tour on his way to Sun City and Las Vegas as he travels westward. If you've never heard Paul, don't pass up an opportunity if he comes your way. This was Paul's first program for CATOE, but I can tell = you from the enthusiastic audience response it will not be his last. Opening his program Paul said he was going to be playing in a light vein in contrast to the = teen piano and violin virtuosos who were sharing the program with him. Starting his program off with selections from "Mary Poppins" quickly gave us a clue to what an exciting show was coming. Paul has a technique of chord jumping from key board to key board up and down the three manuals in rapid succession which is a real crowd pleaser, When he get the sequence going its like watching the juggler with the spinning plates as you wonder if he's going to slip = and lose a plate. No broken crockery today. Paul's program consisted of carefully crafted medleys which contained many familiar selections. = Sharing the bill with Paul was a teen age sister duo who are fantastic talents. At 17 & 14 respectively they have mastered the piano and violin and their performance is spirited as well as flawless. Like Paul, they are really = into their music and their whole being goes into playing their instruments. = Paul is extremely animated and coaxes the most out of the instrument and used = the full resources of the WurliTzer. The Tivoli organ is one of a few = surviving examples of the smaller WurliTzer organs which graced smaller houses. The organ is in excellent condition and performed well today. Our thanks to Paul and the Figard sisters for an exceptional musical afternoon.   jch

I had one day gone into an organ and was attempting to find out why one of the pedal trombone notes (a very fine specimen made by Gottfried for a M=F6ller organ in c. 1930) wasn't working. There seemed to be something blocking the resonator. I held up the pipe to see if I could see what was blocking it. The obstruction slid down the pipe. My mouth happened to be open. It was a dead bat. This is the kind of mistake one never makes twice.   John Speller, St. Louis, Mo.

Bruce Quigley, Senior Pastor Neil Brown, Minister of Music/Organist   Prelude - "Bourree" from Handel's Water Music Hymns - "What a Friend We Have in Jesus" (Converse) -"My Jesus, I Love Thee" (Gordon) -"Have Thine Own Way, Lord" (Adelaide)   Prayer Response at 11:00-- "The Lord's Prayer" by Rimsky Korsakov, sung by Sanctuary Choir   Offertory Anthems -- 8:30 "I Will Greatly Rejoice" (A.

But we made it, and folks said they were especially moved today by the way I played the hymns. So there you go. I did modulate on "My Jesus I Love Thee" for the final stanza and had the sopranos in the choir sing the tenor line as a descant. That worked beautifully. Even the Singspirations (teen choir) sopranos did well w/ it. At 8:30, I had no clue what I was going to play for postlude until I started playing. What turned out was a fairly simple toccata over a tune in the pedals I created on the spot. Whether it's entirely mine I'm not sure, as I heard snippets of other tunes in there, but not direct quotes. And, unbelievably, I actually remembered it for the 11:00 service, and elaborated on it some.   Have a great week in the Lord.
