(back) Subject: Rollin Smith's Vierne Book x-post From: "William T. Van Pelt III" <wvanpelt@erols.com> Date: Thu, 03 Feb 2000 07:52:40 -0500   Dear List:   Rollin Smith has written a brand new book on the life and music of Louis   Vierne. Known by many to be in-the-works, this lavishly illustrated, 800-page tome was worth the wait. The books have, at last, been printed by its publisher and the first shipments have begun arriving at book dealers, including the OHS Catalog (we got ours yesterday and books have   been shipped to all who had placed advanced orders). We have a number in stock to sell for $69 to OHS members, $79 to others. 804-353-9226 or http://www.ohscatalog.org.   Also listed on the website are several other new items, including   1) a biography (in French) of Pierre Cochereau;   2) "Blue Pipes" is a new and unique CD of jazz improvisations realized on a pipe organ;   3) list member Agnes Armstrong's new CD of Victorian Christmas works played at Round Lake (the 3m Ferris organ built in 1847 for Calvary Church, New York, and moved in 1889 to the auditorium of the former Methodist camp meeting ground at Round Lake, New York -- and thus the oldest, large 3m organ existing in the U. S.)   4) many newly-published transcriptions of Cochereau improvisations and a   composed organ symphony;   5) a reissue on CD of Cochereau's famous improv LP recorded at Notre Dame and from which many of the published improvs are transcribed;   6) reissues of two of Olivier Latry's finest CDs on the BNL label which OHS imports: a) "Clockwork Organ" featuring works for flute clocks as played on the 1745 Stumm organ in Kirchheimbolanden and including all 16 of Haydn's works in this genre as well as examples by Handel, Mozart, J. S.   & J. C. Bach, and Balbastre   b) Latry's recording of works by his teacher Gaston Litaize.   7) There are lots of other new goodies, too!   Bill

Also a = 3 >digit number is engraved on them "434" A complete stab in the dark, but perhaps the "TU" stands for "Tuba" (on = the out-of-action TO at school, all of the pipes say what they are on them. I don't know about the "1" at CCC 434 probably means 434Hz for concert A. In Britain it is 440, and I know that it is slightly different over the pond so maybe it is that?

Since that time, I haven't heard a word from OHS. Did you receive this from my address at Classic FM??   I do not want this membership to lapse and OHS has been a WONDERFUL source for me and my `Orgelwerke' audience!! Please let me know - I'm going through ``new CD withdrawal''! :-))   By the way, we are now broadcasting on the web - www.wcny.org All the monthly program listings are there too.   Best regards, Bonnie Beth   Bonnie Beth Derby, B.Mus; M.Mus.
