Dale's Music Store in Silver Spring, MD (a suburb of Washington DC) has one of the best collections of organ posters for sale that I've ever seen anywhere.

But then again, didn't EVERY builder build klunkers throughout their histories?

As usual- the invitation to see and play the Kilgen is always open to anyone wishing to do so.   You know, rumor has it that the main reason this organ wasn't altered or removed in the 60's and 70's (and yes they tried to do both!) was because = the Shrine simply didn't have the money to do anything back then. Fr. = Coughlin had retired and left and things just sort of got quiet and coasted for several years until the current administration, which actually began to = bring things back up two pastors prior to the previous pastor. Hearing the way = this organ triumphantly sings out now, all I have to say to that is thank GOD = the church didn't have excess funds back then!   Scott F.

(back) Subject: French Console Layout From: "ldpatte" <ldpatte@attglobal.net> Date: Sat, 04 Mar 2000 23:22:43 -0500   Does anybody know where I could find out how the stops knobs are generally laid out on a French console with curved, terraced stop-jambs, with regards to which division they belong to? Looking at the pictures of people like Widor, etc. sitting at their respective consoles, the detail is not clear enough to show this. I had originally thought that maybe the two terraces that sat on each side of a manual pertained to that particular manual/division. This couldn't be true, however; where then would be the stops for the Pedale? Also, it would leave very few stops for the Grande Orgue.( I believe the French organs had the Great or "Grande Orgue" on the bottom manual, with possibly a Positiv next, Recit next, and then Bombarde). There doesn't seem to be any divider like you might see on the stop jambs of an English organ. Are they simply grouped together from left to right with the divisions written on the knobs along with the actual stop designation? If so, in what order or configuration were they generally laid out?   Thanks,   Dave C. London, Ontario
