It looks as if it=92s going to be good! It is pleasing to see the BBC featuring the organ once more and as enthusiasts we would do well to write to the BBC commending them on this exciting initiative. The evening features a number of different programmes dealing with a number of aspects of the organ repertoire and of instruments so there should be plenty to interest everyone! Tune in!

Skinner and G. Donald Harrison at Skinner, and Richard O. Whitelegg at M=F6ller, probably the most important figure on the tonal scene in the 1920's and early 1930's was Robert Pier Elliott. He was associated with the Kimball firm in the early 1920's, then with Wurlitzer, Welte and Aeolian, and then back at Kimball again after 1929. Kimball and Aeolian both built some of their finest instruments under his influence. Then of course there was Henry Vincent ("Harry") Willis, who was briefly with Kilgen, then with Wicks, and finally gave it all up, went to work for McDonnell-Douglas and built aeroplanes. Also one might mention James B. Jamison, who was variously associated with Estey, Austin and Kimball, and who was an important advocate of the tonal influences of the 19th. century German organbuilder Edmund Schulze (as also to some extent was Senator Emerson Richards).=20   John Speller St. Louis, Mo.

This is a bReWsE cOrNeLy addition. It is direct electric action and activates all the tonal resources of the Bawld-one "schpiinetwerk" in the chapel, as is his custom. Also not noted, in the hoof-werk is a stop = which emits the sound of a herd of galloping cattle in the highest of fi. No one's sure of any "funmaachinenwerk". One can assume a pedaalwerk compass of 13 notes.   dB

This is a tracker deathray, using fishing wire to pull down the keez of the schpiinetwerk.
