The scanner vibrato was always faster than the Leslies, so you'd get beats within beats. Done right with the multiple 122 or 147 Leslies, this would give a great illusion of ensemble, and was also great for theater organ voicings. Trick: Many of the new Leslie models (excluding the "classic" 122A) have continuously variable rotor speeds, as they use a speed controller. Tinker to taste.   There's no reason why the console vibrato has to cancel out the Leslie and vice versa. I'm sure, although I don't have an 825 schematic handy, that it's a simple wiring change.   DeserTBoB

From: "Richard Pinel" <rpinelchat@musicman123.freeserve.co.uk> Date: Tue, 8 Feb 2000 20:21:14 -0000   We're quite lucky, the two previous choir directors since I have been here are in America and 300 miles north of me!! However, the one 300 miles = north (now at Blackburn Cathedral) is handy for finding out gossip. He recently phoned the rector - just a social call, and was told that "I am tightening the rope on contemporary music". Luckily we haven't seen this rope yet!!!   Richard

Things are putting along. I'm enjoying the cathedralesque musicality of Holy Trinity, even if the organ does not speak "proper British." ;-)   My book is coming along and I'm starting a compilation of wedding gaffs which will compile quicker than the novel.   The AGO organ crawl to Jacksonville was great fun. Good Shepherd's big 4/44 Skinner '29 is beautiful as ever but suffering from and dreadful Austin console. I've never seen an Austin console in such terrible shape! The organs at First Presbyterian (Pilcher 1905/27 with 60s baroquisms! 3/35) hardly played and could barely be heard because of profuse carpet everywhere: nave - aisles & under pews, in the choir loft!! Really pathetique. The Austin at St. John's cathedral, although rather nondescript, makes a good showing and is well kept. For me, the highlight of the day was the 1896 Harrison tubular pneumatic 2/17 at St. Peter's Episcopal - Fernandina. It was restored in 1990 by John Farmer.

It is beyond me why they have purchased a Rogers to blast away. Truly sickening.   We had a really great time.   bruce cornely ~:~:~ rohrschok8@webtv.net gainesville, florida   http://community.webtv.net/cremona84000/ALLHAILTHEPOWERand http://community.webtv.net/hydrant/TheBeaglesNest http://community.webtv.net/rohrschok8/OrganMusicLibrary

I always transposed the hymns down for the earlier services. Interestingly, the lowest attendance was at 8:30.   bruce cornely ~:~:~ rohrschok8@webtv.net gainesville, florida   http://community.webtv.net/cremona84000/ALLHAILTHEPOWERand http://community.webtv.net/hydrant/TheBeaglesNest http://community.webtv.net/rohrschok8/OrganMusicLibrary

It might be worth your while to join up and post your request. They are a very friendly bunch of people.
