(back) Subject: Re: Unequal Temperaments in Cents From: <MickBerg@aol.com> Date: Sat, 23 Sep 2000 05:05:29 EDT   Thanks, Ron.   I'll take a look at this.   Actually I found a table on Andreas' CD, which shows exactly what to do = in cents. I haven't had time to try it yet. It doesn't include Kellner, but = has Werckmeister and some others.   If it works, I will create a whole (but very small) organ in unequal temperament. An advantage of my PC Organ system, that I haven't discussed yet, is that you can create as many different organs as you like. You just =   have to keep the Soundfont banks the same, otherwise you would have to re-load them. Each organ would just be a different BB structure.   How I wish Andreas would translate his CD into English! It seems to have = so much interesting stuff on it. Actually I could get it translated myself. = I'll ask him for permission.   Mick.

My = duties include directing the Church Choir and Handbell Choir and playing the 1988 two-manual Kerner & Merchant Tracker Organ - a wonderful instrument = located in a superb setting. David Enos, former organist and Director of Music moved on to a position of Associate Organist at St. Hugo's outside = Detroit. David is an excellent musician and I have a big job ahead of me to keep up with the foundation that he left at St. James.   By the way, for those in the Detroit area: David Enos will be playing a recital tomorrow at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul in Detroit. He states that the "big Pilzecker (110 rks) is wonderful!'' I wish that I could attend. I'm sorry that I do not have the time of the recital but I'm sure that one could contact St. Paul's Cathedral. (Maybe someone on the list = has the information). If you can - do attend!! You will not be disappointed!   Best of luck David.   Bonnie Beth Derby, B.Mus., M.Mus.
