I am not sure how much validity these references to personality have on this chatline.   On the other hand, isn't showmanship 99% illusion?   On the other hand, maybe George was having a "Bad Hair Day".   On the other hand, maybe George felt very "possessive" regarding the organ =   (double entendre intended).

If the leather stays intact and does not crumble close it back up and consider yourself lucky.

(back) Subject: Everett Orgatron pix From: "Bob Scarborough" <desertbob@rglobal.net> Date: Thu, 08 Jun 2000 11:51:54   Over on the E-org list, one of our members, Bill Warner, has a real live 5 rank Everett Orgatron, as has been discussed on this list a time of two, which he is getting into shape. The Orgatron was the first serious competition for Hammond in the late '30s, after having been invented by a fellow from M=F6ller (who was sacked by them for his efforts, but later rehired) and then produced by the Everett Piano Co. The Orgatron was lightyears ahead of Hammond in terms of tonality and console, and Bill has graciously posted some pictures of his 5 rank example on the 'Net at:   http://www.thevision.net/njbrw549/org1.JPG http://www.thevision.net/njbrw549/org2.JPG http://www.thevision.net/njbrw549/org3.JPG http://www.thevision.net/njbrw549/org4.JPG http://www.thevision.net/njbrw549/org5.JPG   As you can see, the console is quite substantial, and would grace any small 2 manual pipe installation pretty well. Orgatrons function on 5" of wind with an internal blower, regulator, windchest, pallets and the whole works. After Wurlitzer bought the product after WW II, the immedicatly began cheapening it by making the reeds free-running and relied instead on keyed audio, which was far less successful. Orgatrons by Everett were available in models up to 10 full ranks. I played a 10 rank model often, and after replacing many 1930's wax/paper capacitors, the tone was quite good.   Enjoy!   DeserTBoB

The present cardinal, ever aware of his Hispanic constituency, sought permission from Rome to name the new cathedral "Our Lady of Angels", a shortened version of the original name = of the the city: "The Pueblo of Our Lady of the Angels of the Portic" ... whatever that word is .. I can't spell it ... as it should have been all along.

(back) Subject: French harmonium registrations From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Thu, 08 Jun 2000 12:41:47 -0700   There's a complete table in the Kalmus reprint of Franck's "L'Organiste" .... I don't have them memorized, and the book's at church, but basically what Franck often does is have the right hand play an octave higher on a 16' stop, and the left hand an octave lower on a 4' stop of constrasting color (French harmonium stops divide at middle c, I believe), so that the effect is that of playing the right hand on one manual with one color, and the left hand playing in the same octave on another manual of contrasting color. He was a master at exploiting that "limitation" of the French harmonium.   The stops are numbered, rather than named, which is what makes it a little difficult to remember them, but there are stops of 16, 8, and 4, plus a celeste on larger models.   The pieces don't work on American reed organs, because most of them divide at tenor f. The French harmonium was/is quite a sophisticated instrument ... vide the pieces for it by Tournemire and Langlais ... evidently the action wasn't as "squishy", or the speech as slow as an American suction reed organ, if one judges by some of the Tournemire movements.   I have to go to church today ... I'll try and remember to pick up the book and post the stops.   Cheers,   Bud
