I told her no prob (I know I have it somewhere). But she said she didn't want to just hear the melody, she wanted the words. Uh, oh. I don't remember owning a copy with the text or having even accompanied it.   I would be so grateful for someone to point to me a source for purchase or a loan or whatever.   And of course, thanks, thanks and more thanks!   Yours,   Darryl by the Sea

I personally prefer stop-tabs over draw-knob = consoles especially when it comes to the larger instruments. Much easier hand-register. During my time at the Shrine, the biggest problem were = the pistons. They were slow and needed constant attention. In fact, it was = pretty much in the early stages of requiring replacement. I was really surprised = to learn that they somehow managed to keep it functioning for nearly 25 more = years albeit 'robbing' one console's parts to keep the other one going. It = was a pleasure to have the opportunity to play it again back in June of this = year. It is very much the same instrument (tonally) as it was in the 60's and 70's = AND it was a pleasure to hear the entire instrument in tune. Much of the pipe = work is extremely difficult (or impossible) to get to without removing several = ranks. I did notice that the organ speaks out much better now that the swell = shades open completely.   If there is one last thing Scott and the Shrine can do to the organ is to replace the white (YUCK) plastic keyboards with something that looks much = more authentic. In the 60's and 70's, the keyboards were still the original = ivory. The nave console was used so much over the years that all the keyboards (especially the Great and Swell) had small depressions in the middle = register from wear. Apparently someone had replaced the keyboards with white = plastic after 1975 and prior to Scott's arrival. The crown on the pedals were non-existent....again from wear.   Because I'm tall (6' 3"), my biggest problem was leg room. There is not = much room between the bench and the lower keydesk.   Sorry I went off-topic a bit....but there's a special place in my heart = for this Kilgen.   Ed Kolcz - former organist at the National Shrine of the Little Flower St. Luke Catholic Church Coconut Creek, FL     "Storandt, Peter" wrote:   > The Shrine Kilgen's consoles are an order of magnitude more convenient, > comfortable, and logical than any I have seen and played before visiting > there last month.

As I said earlier, what CAN happen is more prompt speech due to lack of delay of contact closure. The pipe speaks sooner, but not "differently". If an electropneumatic organ experiences "slow" speech, then there's something quite amiss with its leather. The travel = of the armature disk occurs in less than a millisecond when current is applied. There IS no "slow" application of an electromagnet's armature; = it either goes it doesn't go, based upon current in the coil, and thus magnetic flux in the magnet core. One factor that could indeed affect the =   armature's speed is dirt, but that's not important here; we're talking about the RELAY. Actual speed of pallet opening is governed by the design =   and efficiency of the succeeding pneumatic motors, and has nothing = whatever to do with current supplied by the magnet.   DeserTBoB

Sequencers do not adjust to the congregation as = a live organist must adjust! Let me give an example of my experience.

Indeed =   this device may be better than getting a totally inefficient player who = will make people hate the organ. And yes there are disks out there of organists =   playing fine organ and hymn prelude literature!   for me the benefits of sequencing are:   1. to hear the sound as you are heard in the room.

I occassionally sequence =   the hymns during the service so I later can understand what I did with = people present.   3 .To hear a balance between organ and choir or solo or ensemble.   4. To sequence the Widor "Toccata" so you only have to play it once on = Easter.   In short, the sequencer is not really a replacement for organists, but a = tool to help them become better musicians and servants of the church!
