They are being scanned by my computer expert son and copies will be sent to all who requested them, hopefully by next week. From a very snowy Worcester. Judy Ollikkala

VanDerStad" <dcob@nac.net> Date: Sat, 19 Feb 2000 15:09:00 -0500   Good Afternoon, listmembers   We are looking for an SATB arrangement of Frances Allitsen's "The Lord is My Light", which was originally written for soprano solo.   It is preferred that the SATB arrangement accompaniment be as close as possible to the accompaniment of the soprano solo.   If anyone can lead me to a good source for new or used copies (will need about 40) please let me know ASAP.   Appreciatively,   Mr. Jan S. VanDerStad Oak Ridge, NJ

I'm almost CERTAIN it's still in print for every imaginable voice combo and accompaniment ... at various times I've had it for TTBB and SATB ... I think you can use the solo piano and organ accompaniments with the SATB ... both are in C, as I recall.   Cheers,   Bud   "Jan S.

(back) Subject: Pedal to manual couplers From: "tgregory@speeddial.net" <tgregory@speeddial.net> Date: Sat, 19 Feb 00 16:06:09 -0600   Greetings:   While nursing a broken left ankle I have come to realize that there are many uses of a pedal to manual coupler.   I have only seen one coupler like this on a very old Wicks practice organ at the University of Wisconsin/Madison.   Are any present day builders including this stop in new instruments?   Sincerely,   TG   Thomas and Patricia Gregory 716 West College Avenue Waukesha WI USA 53186-4569 Telephone (262) 547-7975 Email tgregory@speeddial.net

I had a toe stud installed on the big Rodgers I used to play at Graham Memorial so I could throw the Pedal to Great on and off when my hands were busy ... that choir did a lot of oratorio choruses.   David Craighead's old E.M. Skinner at St. Paul's in Rochester had a Solo = to Great MELODY coupler ... that was VERY useful for bringing the Solo Tuba = down in free hymn accompaniments, etc. to make a Tuba descant. John-Paul Buzard does the same thing on his new instruments that have a Tuba.   Cheers,   Bud, who DOES like gadgets and lots of couplers for service-playing, but probably won't be able to AFFORD them for the new organ at St. Matthew's, = if and when.   "tgregory@speeddial.net" wrote:   > Greetings: > > While nursing a broken left ankle I have come to realize that there are > many uses of a pedal to manual coupler. > > I have only seen one coupler like this on a very old Wicks practice = organ > at the University of Wisconsin/Madison. > > Are any present day builders including this stop in new instruments? > > Sincerely, > > TG > > Thomas and Patricia Gregory > 716 West College Avenue > Waukesha WI USA > 53186-4569 > Telephone (262) 547-7975 > Email tgregory@speeddial.net > > "Pipe Up and Be Heard!" > PipeChat: A discussion List for pipe/digital organs & related topics > HOMEPAGE : http://www.pipechat.org > List: mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org > Administration: mailto:admin@pipechat.org > Subscribe/Unsubscribe: mailto:requests@pipechat.org
