But somehow the parties involved - pastor, musician, choir, committee, etc., simply must be = willing to reach a compromise. Surely there is something tasteful that will work, be fresh and rhythmic, and NOT be RAP!

From: "Hugh Drogemuller" <lon.hdrogemuller@wwdc.com> Date: Wed, 06 Dec 2000 22:52:22 -0500   The postings about having a fifth of a well known bourbon at the console remind me of a photograph shown in one of the early editions of the I.S.O. =   Journal which showed a fifth of Black and White in plain view in a small cupboard built into the end of the stop jambs of an organ console. The = door was open when the photograph had been taken. I believe the photo had been taken in Germany.   HD

(back) Subject: Moller #4684 From: "Luther Melby" <lmelby@prtel.com> Date: Wed, 6 Dec 2000 23:14:32 -0600   Some of you may recall that I am installing a 1926 Moller organ in my church. I now have nearly finished the Swell. It was played for the 1st time last Sunday, the first Sunday in Advent. With 5 ranks it sounded quite nice, this Sunday it should have all 7 ranks in the Swell up and running. Lots of work left in the Great. I am really enjoying this project, it is a learning experience. Thanks to those on this list who have offered advice and encouragement. Luther
