The instrument sounds wonderful, recording is = max, and GW's non-stop playing is flawless. Direct-to-disc recording- tho touted then, has been done since the 20s.

(back) Subject: RE: new LA organs From: "Storandt, Peter" <pstorandt@okcu.edu> Date: Wed, 7 Jun 2000 08:16:42 -0500   Having just spent some time with Manuel's Opus 30 at St. James Cathedral, Seattle, I can assure list members that large and tonally coherent instruments are no less likely to emerge from his shop than from other sources of renown. And the new organ (apse) marries remarkably with the original gallery Hutchings-Votey. AGO attendees will have a chance to = savor this combination.   Peter   DesertBob wrote:   I wouldn't think the Rosales shop would be able to turn out an organ of = the size required for the "Dalt Wizzley" project, anyway, especially considering below happening at about the same time: [snip] I had heard Rosales did get that one, RC patronage being what it is. Whether he continues his penchant for heaps of loud, non-blending honking reed tone (seemingly in the hispanic tradition, as one looks at Spain's arberrant organ heritage) remains to be seen. I've heard a couple of his works, and remain nonplussed, especially at the lack of finely voiced flue ensemble work necessary in a concert organ.

(back) Subject: Maintenance Questions From: <Tspiggle@aol.com> Date: Wed, 7 Jun 2000 21:01:55 EDT   I need advise from my fellow organ enthusiasts. For the past 25 years I = have had in my home a Moller organ. The room where the organ is will soon be remodeled and the (encased) organ will be partially dismantled and then = later repositioned within the room. I thought it would also be a good time to do =   some needed organ maintenance such as clean everything, releather the = flute stoppers, replace some felt, adjust or replace contacts, re-shellac the cotton covered wiring, etc. I will be having the reservoir releathered by = a local company. The organ was built in 1948 so after 52 years the keys are getting rather "sloppy" in their travel and (unwanted) side-to-side = motion. I would like to rebuild the manuals. My first question to you is, how do the =   professional organ repairmen / women do this? Do they send the manuals off = to be professionally rebuilt? If so, where? If I want to rebuild them myself, =   where do I get the rebushing materials?   The second question concerns chest leather. As indicated, the organ is 52 years old and as far as I know the leather is original. During the 25 = years I've had the organ it has ciphered one time that I recall and it still performs flawlessly. My question to you is, since the organ will be = partially apart and I will have easy access to the chests should I:   a. Assume since the leather is 52 years old it must be on it's "last legs" =   and go ahead and releather the chests? or   b. Forget it for now and wait until it begins to fail later on? I should = also mention that when I got the organ 25 years ago I "painted" the leather = with preservative.   Your input would be appreciated. Thanks.   Tom in Old Hickory, TN

Is the organ in the Artiste class of PO? Did you *paint* (assuming silicone conditioner) both primaries (if not = unit chests) and note pouches ? Have you inspected the primary pouches and/or note pouches since you installed the chests? And if so,,,what was leather condition? Generally speaking you will get more leather life out of note pouches = versus primaries   My $.02 on the keyboards is that, yep,,,they can be re-bushed, and = materials are easily available from American Piano Supply for one source. = However,,its a fair amount of labor and "expertise gain time" if its your first one, so =   sending them out might be a better bet, time wise, depending on how busy = you are, or how much time you have available. There are some fairly critical adjustments as well on the keyboards that can take some time to accomplish =   unless you are used to that work. Just one persons thoughts,,,I am sure you will receive many opinions. Regards, ---Roc L V Rockafellow
