(back) Subject: Re: French Console Layout From: "antoni scott" <ascott@epix.net> Date: Sun, 05 Mar 2000 10:59:14 -0500   Hi Dave:   You are quite correct. On an English/American draw knob console the pedal division is grouped together, same with the Great, Swell, etc. If the number gets bigger than one vertical row they spill over and share another row with another division, divided only by a raised piece of molding.   Cavaille-Coll divided pedal stops on the left and right quadrant. To the uninitiated this may at first appear to be a bit confusing as the end of one division and the beginning of another may not be that easy to detect .. The St. Sulpice 5 manual organ has red felt with gold lettering above the respective divisions, but it is still a bit confusing. The pedal stops are on the bottom row and the solo stops on the top row. I have a schematic diagram of the stop layout for you, if you E-mail me directly. However, this layout is very ergonomic. Have you seen any early photographs of the Los Angeles Art Organ Company console that eventually ended up in the Wanamaker building ? The style is so sensible that the later rocker stop tab console to follow used the same layout.         Antoni

But more than 10 years ago, a Money magazine commercial on CNN featured this piece as a background for the commercial, and it just stuck in my head. It works rather nicely on the organ, so I use it from time to time.   Have a great week in the Lord.   Neil Brown Barnegat NJ USA

(back) Subject: "Lilac Time" silent film at the Strand Theatre From: <KriderSM@aol.com> Date: Sun, 5 Mar 2000 21:38:58 EST   Greetings my friends,   I have just learned that Tom Hamilton will be accompanying the silent = film, "Lilac Time" at the Strand Theatre. The showing date is April 6, 2000. I believe the time is 7 pm. "Lilac Time" is set during WWI and stars Colleen =   Moore and Gary Cooper. Film buffs will recall that Gary Cooper first = appeared as a walk-on in the award winning silent, "Wings", which "Lilac Time" follows.   History teachers may want to let students see first hand how the early = movies were viewed.   The Strand is on 28 E Winter St. in Delaware, Ohio. Call 740/363-4914 for details.   This performance will recreate in an intimate setting, the atmosphere and = fun of a silent film accompanied by a theatre organ. Tom Hamilton will be = playing a Baldwin Theatre electronic spinet, unless a 3 manual Conn electronic, recently donated to COTOS, can be installed.   The Strand Theatre is a quaint downtown theatre which seats around 400 people. It has been twinned with the balcony closed off for the second auditorium. This fact is not noticable as the front and sides of the house =   are still original.   Hope to see you all there.   Stan Krider
