Van Pelt" <bill@organsociety.org> Date: Tue, 12 Sep 2000 16:01:59 -0400   A 1948 Moller 2m of 15+ ranks is available free to a church that will properly and professionally have it removed, refurbished as necessary, and installed. The organ must be removed within about one month. Please contact Ronald Tindall in Newport News, Virginia, about the instrument at 757-595-7705. He is not on the Internet. I have not seen the organ, = myself, and thus I really know nothing more about it. However, Mr. Tindall has a reputation as a competent organ technician. He is well familiar with the organ, having installed it some years ago in its present church home. Please address your inquiries to him.   Bill Van Pelt

I was wondering what experiences/likes/dislikes/warnings any people may have for us as we search for a new electronic organ. Looking at 3 major brands that are available locally (locally around here means 250 miles!!) -Allen -Rodgers -Johnannus and if anyone has any other exceptional brands, please include them.   Thanks for your help!!!   Paul Soulek Round Lake, MN

He was well up in = his eighties; he saw the English Mass coming; he decided to retire.   He practiced a sort of last-gasp version of the Organ Mass, thusly:   Priest: Gloria in excelsis Deo. Professor: et in terra pax hominibus, bonae voluntatis. Organ: I, IV, V7, I Professor: Cum Sancto Spiritu in gloria Dei Patris. Amen.   And that, friends and neighbors, was the Gloria. Ditto the Credo. Ditto = the Dies irae at funerals. When I first came on board, the Pastor couldn't figure = out why the daily Masses TOOK so much longer, until the Curate pointed out to him = that I (1) sang the PROPERS, which was unheard-of in those days, and (2) I sang = all the words of the Ordinary (grin).   But never mind all that ... the Prof. was a fine gentleman ... he still = came in on Saturdays, so I could have a day off (which HE'D never had in sixty = years), and he taught me how to sing Mass in proper Italian, once we got the = Italian Missal.   Cheers,   Bud   Jim wrote:   > Boy, they wouldn't want me doing that > > ----- Original Message ----- > From: Chris Johns <Chris_Johns@gmx.de> > To: PipeChat <pipechat@pipechat.org> > Sent: Wednesday, September 06, 2000 8:27 AM > Subject: Story > > > Dear All > > > > >...Professor Smith turns and informs the inquiring student, > > >"That is the electric song-leader." > > > > Reminds me of a story told to me by a priest I sometimes play for.

We only have 2-3 Rodgers techs = for the whole state of California, as far as I can tell.   On a practical level, Rodgers has gone through TOO many owners and TOO = many R&D directors. Currently, their big thing seems to be MIDI, rather than = traditional organ sounds.   Cheers,   Bud   Tspiggle@aol.com wrote:   > Paul: > > My experience has been as follows. Forget the quality.
