He and he partner were called down to the = Roosevelt Theatre in downtown Chicago to take care of some dead notes in the console that = was bugging the resident organist. The problem turned out to be a rat's nest (the real kind not fouled up wiring) in the Kimball Console. When his partner opened up = the back of the console the mama rat ran up his pant leg. Quick response by the = story teller by squeezing the pant leg to get the rat back down his leg prevented harm = to the family jewels. Needless to say a trip the hospital and a call to the exterminator was required before the dead notes were eventually fixed. I found in my = theatre organ crawling days that rodents in the orchestra pit was often a problem as = many theatres blew the refuse to the front of the main floor for collection, often = leaving munchies in the orchestra pit to attract the visitors.   Jon

Many choice components from long gone theatre organs have been carefully combined to make this outstanding instrument. Some of these components are from the famous Chicago Tivoli WurliTzer. Those of us familiar with this organ = know how successful this endeavor turned out. This promises to be the single = exciting organ event of the fall in the Chicago area. Advanced Sale Tickets either by = mail order or from the Hinsdale box office are $10 (seniors $8) All tickets are $12 day = of show.

However, via combination and SSL system, the entire instrument can be played from the antiphonal console, using registrations preset at the main console.

(back) Subject: Re: Dual Console Organs From: "John Winn" <john@jwinn.demon.co.uk> Date: 26 Sep 99 17:16:20 +0100   There are two twin console organs in the UK that come to mind.   The most famous is the Compton in the Southampton Guuildhall, one console theatre, and the other straight.   The second is in Manchester Cathedral. I think both consoles are similar, but it is more than 30 years since I was last there. There is a switch that turns off the pedals, swell pedals etc of the "not used" console. One console is in the quire behind the choir stalls and the other is in the nave.   John     -- John Winn   Upminster, England  
(back) Subject: Re: Ode To Joy.... From: bud <budchris@earthlink.net> Date: Mon, 27 Sep 1999 14:32:32 -0700   Wouldn't it have to be "Come AND sing a song of joy (blank)" or something similar to fit the metre of "Ode to Joy"? The metre is 87.87.87.87 (or = 87.87 D), same as "Hyfrydol", "Ton-y-Botel", etc.   Cheers,   Bud   Carlo Pietroniro wrote:   > Greetings, > > okay, here's what I'm looking for.

Today from percussionist SGM (Sergeant Major) Art Himmelberger, our Post Chapel Handbell Choir director and the USMA Band's West Point Bicentennial [2002] Coordinator I learned that this particular Egner's first name was Philip. Perhaps F. T. had a son or brother with that name.. If I come across any info on relatives of Philip, I shall certainly send it your way! BTW, were you present at Svetlana's recital Saturday at St. Agnes? if so, what were your impressions? Will you be at the Basically Bach program this Saturday? I would love to be there.. see how my stamina holds out.. I also hope to attend another 9 AM session of an inspiring class in improvisation given by Don Filkins of our chapter.. this will be in Poughkeepsie, considerably north of USMA and Citicorp..   > Be well, Danke schoen, Malcolm.   Pat   ___________________________________________________________________ Get the Internet just the way you want it.

Words were written by Henry van Dyke (1852-1933). Here's the first verse.   Joyful, joyful, we adore thee, God of glory, Lord of love; Hearts unfold like flowers before thee, Opening to the sun above. Melt the clouds of sin and sadness; Drive the dark of doubt away; Giver of immortal gladness, Fill us with the light of day!   The next three verses an be supplied on request. hope this is what you are looking for.

On >a mixture/mutation I have always been under the impression that these >intervals are exact so tuning all of the ranks of a mixture to the tuning >rank would stop this,   Hmm, I think there might be some confusion about the tuning rank. If the mixture note being tuned has C's and "G's" one wouldn't want to tune the = "G" pipes by sounding a G tuning note somehow (on another manual?). But if = one plays C with the mixture and a 4' Principal drawn one should be able to = tune even the quint ranks to the 4' tuning rank, listening to the 3rd or 6th harmonic or whatever for the beats...assuming one has ears with good high = end response.   This weekend I was making progress touching up notes on the Mixture which = the painters had disturbed, but when I got into some of the higher notes I realized I couldn't hear the highest rank any more. At first that wasn't = a big problem because I could still hear the beats. But then they = disappeared too, and when the person holding the notes has to tell you what to do it's =   time to quit, so I did. Hopefully I'll be better at Baked Eggplant Sandwiches. Many thanks to all who responded to my plea!   Joe McConathy

Play around with the music and you'll = see. The important thing here is that I asked for help and I got it. Once = again, pipechat (it's members) provided me with what I was looking for.   Carlo   ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com
