(X post) From: "VEAGUE" <dutchorgan@svs.net> Date: Thu, 20 Jan 2000 07:11:31 -0500   I subbed at the Oak Lawn roller rink in Oak Lawn, Ill. back in the = mid-late 60s. The organist Don Scott, built a 3-manual Hammond.   Quite a different animal to play, and the tone cabinets were up in the roof-rafters above the rink. Sound familiar?   Is one supposed to change tempo while the floor is full? All these people kept falling into each other! Just kidding.   I had an album of Eddy Dunsteder playing pipes with side-men. It grew = wings and flew out the window.   Rick

Tbank you for your kind words. We are pleased you were able to get into the church and meet some of our people.   Just a word about the Christmas decoration - the large evergreen swag is quite an item, it is about 170 feet long, made in one continuous length in the nearby Hall. It took about 15 people to carry it from Hall to Church, like a giant python.   The organ: what follows is probably more than anyone really wants to know, but we are very excited about getting a Letourneau Organ.   If you are ever and Halifax and wish to join us for worship, Sunday services are 8am (said Communiom) and 10:30 (Choral Communion), 4pm Sung Evensong, 9:30 pm sung or choral Compline. There is also said Holy Communion Monday 7pm, Wed. 10 am, Friday 12:15pm. Morning Prayer is said Mon - Sat. at 7:30 am and Evening Prayer at 5:30pm. During summer the Offices move to the tiny Little Dutch Church, which you would also likely enjoy seeing. Calling ahead in case there has been a time change is a good idea.   Best wishes, Debra Burleson Administrative Assistant to the Rector, St. George's Anglicn Church _____________________________________________________________ A New Organ for St. George=92s Church, Halifax, Nova Scotia   The restoration of Saint George's Round Church following the fire of June 2, 1994 includes ensuring that the church continues as a place of worshipful music and also a unique historic venue for performance. The church's circular shape and umbrella dome give it remarkable acoustic qualities; other refinements during reconstruction, such as choosing plaster of special hardness for the organ bay, will enhance the church=92s voice.   In June 2002, we will receive a concert quality tracker organ from Orgues Letourneau of St. Hyacinthe, Quebec. This instrument will reflect and respond to the architectural and acoustical beauty of the building. This organ will be an excellent instrument for all aspects of the traditional Anglican liturgy used at Saint George's. Its flexibility in handling music from the Renaissance to 20th century will set it apart from other organs in this area.   The organ will have two manuals, with a compass of 58 notes; the concave and radial pedal keyboard compass will be 32 notes. The stop action will be electric with solid-state combination action, with 32 levels of memory. The console will be detached from the casework, reversed, with a roll-top. The pipework will be scaled for a warm sound.   Further specifications follow.   Detailed specifications: __________________________________________________________________ Summary:   Division Stops Ranks Extensions Borrows Pipes   Great 10 13 0 0 754 Swell (expressive) 8 10 0 2 = 568 Pedal 7 5 2 0 184 __________________________________________________________________ Great:   Bourdon 16' Open Diapason 8' Chimney Flute 8' Principal 4' Spire Flute 4' Nazard 2-2/3' Piccolo 2' Mixture IV 1-1/3' Trumpet 8' Tremulant   Swell (expressive):   Stopped Diapason 8' Viola da Gamba 8' Viola Celeste 8' Spindle Flute 4' Fifteenth 2' Sharp Mixture III 1' Bassoon 16' Oboe 8' Tremulant   Pedal:   Subbass 16' Principal 8' Bass Flute 8' Choral Bass 4' Trombone 16' Trumpet 8' Schalmey 4'   Couplers: Swell to Great, Great to Pedal, Swell to Pedal Balanced expression pedal for Swell
