Gilles Cantagrel:   I came across this when I requested information on Louis Couperin from the pipe chat forum. One of the responders ran a quote from it. The information was very detailed, and informative, and it made pretty good sense, expecially for a translation...   Would you know if it is available? Has it been translated?   thanks,   Tom White   tomwhite@hamptons.com

Alexander Matthews version of St. Anne, in a book entitled "Twelve Choral Preludes based on Hymn Tunes" published by Oliver Ditson Co. It also has a little "Doxology" theme in it.

(back) Subject: Concert in Chicago on Sunday From: "David Scribner" <david@blackiris.com> Date: Thu, 2 Nov 2000 19:11:24 -0600   it is extremely rare that I, as list owner, publicize any event that I am participating in but this one is very dear to my heart. The following is copied from an email sent out by the Chicago Chapter of the OHS. **************************** Sunday, 5 November 2000, 2:00 p.m., Saint Vincent de Paul Catholic Church, 1010 West Webster Avenue, Chicago. Ars Musica Chicago will perform music of Dr. Arthur C. Becker, for many years Organist for the church and first Dean of the DePaul University School of Music. Dr. Robert Finster will be conductor for the event, and organists will include Jerome Butera, Gerald Chalupka, Larry Long, David Scribner, and Robert Beatty. Proceeds will benefit restoration of the organ. The event marks the conclusion of the three-year renovation of the church building as well as the Parish's 125th Anniversary. Tickets may be reserved at the door by calling 773-327-1113. A donation of $25 is suggested. ***************************** For those that are interested this is a 1901 Lyon and Healy of 55 ranks on three manuals. This concert is also the 99th Anniversary of the Dedication of the Organ on November 5, 1901. Although it has been rebuilt back in 1955 or so the voicing for the most part is original and it has a splendid sound. Unfortunately, the console is in very bad shape, all my registrations will have to be done by hand and with the crescendo pedal. But as I understand it, there is a new console on order.   On Sunday morning at 10 AM there is the Celebration of the Jubilee Mass with Chicago's Cardnial Archbishop presiding. The choir for that Mass will consist of many Alumni from the St. Vincent Choir going back to Dr. Becker's days as Organist/Choirmaster. He was O/CM there for 57 years and much of his choral music, some of which will be done on Sunday, was composed for that choir and church. During the last few years of his "reign" I was his Associate Organist and then became the 4th (I think that is correct) Organist and Choirmaster for the Parish upon his retirement. This will be the first time in something like 25 years that I have played publicly at St. Vincent's and also the first time to see some of my former choir members. Since I no longer have a church job and haven't had one for some years, I very rarely play in public situations so this has me a bit nervous. But I did want to help publicize the concert, both for the memory of Dr. Becker, who was also my organ teacher, and to help the parish raise the funds for the organ's restoration. I know the suggested donation is a bit high I have a feeling that they will accept whatever you can offer.   If anyone from the list does attend please introduce yourself following the concert. Wish me luck!!!   Your intrepid list owner,   David

For 8 ranks (5 flue, 3 reed), so 3/4 hp or so (all electric action). With or without motor. If with, should be 1-phase, 115 or 208v.

It promises to be a most entertaining and enjoyable evening of music -- well worth a drive = to attend!   The organ of St. Benedict's Church is a 1960 Wicks of 30 ranks, recently having benefitted from a new console/control system and major tonal revisions by Nichols and Simpson, Inc. of Little Rock AR. St. Benedict's Church is a large and beautiful room with a generous acoustic to match -- the instrument easily belies its humble specification. The console will = be in full view of the audience for the concert.   Subiaco is just south of I-40 at Clarksville, Arkansas -- I'd be happy to provide further directions/info for anyone needing them. I hope to see some fellow listmembers in attendance!   Cheers!   Tim Bovard Little Rock AR <tmbovard@arkansas.net>

Although = the audience sang along, he changed keys 5 times thru 6 versus. He played an "intro" into each key change.
