There is a photograph of the happy couple, dressed in fifteenth-century costumes, cutting the church-shaped wedding cake with a sword. According to the groom, they met last year at an open air Easter Vigil service in Wilmington and have been carrying on a courtship between North Carolina and New York. They apparently intend to continue commuting between Wilmington and New York City now that they are married. Their wedding took place by candlelight in the Cathedral of St. John the Divine.   John Speller

"M=FCnster" means > "minster" (whatever that means) >=20 Chris:   The Brit word "minster" is from the Latin "monasterium" (monastery). The Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church says:   A name applied to certain cathedrals and other large churches in England, esp. the cathedrals of York, Lincoln, Ripon, Southwell, and Litchfield, and the churches at Beverley, Wimborne, &c. As a common noun it originally meant any monastic establishment or its church, whether strictly a monaster= y (e.g. the abbey at Westminster) or a house or college of secular canons (which was also often called "monasterium' in the Middle Ages), such as wer= e all those mentioned above. In Anglo-Saxon England 'old minsters' founded b= y kings and bishops on their estates and staffed by gruops of clergy living i= n the community, were the centres of vast parishes, within which new churches= , each served by a single priest, were created to serve smaller areas. One such minster is still recalled by Minster Street in Reading; Lambourn, Aylesbury, Brampton and Sonning were others in the same region.   whatever that means   Alan, who likes M=FCnster cheese more than most, but not as much as Havarti with caraway seeds.

(back) Subject: Why we should have good real crumhorns on modern orchestral organs From: "Dave G." <dave_hat@hotmail.com> Date: Sun, 28 May 2000 14:40:06 PDT   Hi everyone,   >Perhaps this is nearer to the medieval instrument, but except with >strictly "Orchestral" style organs, stops are not meant to be exact >imitations of the instruments they are named after.   That is true, you can't exactly imitate orchestral instruments, but the = art comes from getting as close as you can. Kind of like painting... photorealistic painting takes a high degree of technical skill and = knowledge but somehow real cameras do better. IMHO The real art is to imitate, suggest, and perhaps abstract your subjects without trying to duplicate = them exactly. That is my philosophy of imitative stops.   Now as for the Crumhorn... I would want to get close to the sound of the mediaeval instrument, but the role I see for the Crumhorn on the organs I would design would be as a solo voice for use in jazz settings, possibly = for duets or dialogues with a saxophone stop. Same argument for including a Schalmei in modern style orchestral organs, though I see a Schalmei as = being useful in more rock-type and also tango where I think a Crumhorn wouldn't sound right. (We can probably survive without a Kinura however)   >big beefy sound   Mooooo! Sounds like someone else has been gobbling tic-tacs and reading Irwin. :-D   >None of the above should, of course, be confused with the Cream Horn, >which is a delicious confection beloved of organists <g>.   Actually never have tried one of them.

Big brick church ... you can see it from the Interstate right after you cross the bridge ... >>   Interesting to hear about this place again. When I was doing graduate = study at the Juilliard in the early 60s, some fellow students and I drove to Houston (only one speeding ticket) for an AGO national convention, my = first. Joseph Blanton (a Texan) had just brought out "The Organ in Church = Design," and was selling autographed copies, one of which I bought for what seemed then like the astonishing price of $20 - a huge book, mind you. That book caused us to detour to New Orleans on our way home, because Blanton = suggested that there might be some Cavaille-Coll reeds in the organ at St. Louis Cathedral - there weren't (anymore), but that is another story, and that whole subject of Cavaille-Coll material in America was very well discussed = on PipOrg-L at least a year ago, and can be followed in the Archives of that list. Not long after that, on a trip to Ohio, again, because of Blanton, = we detoured to Covington to see the very organ Bud mentions above - it was a pre-war, exposed pipework organ by Walter Holtkamp, certainly one of the first, if not the first - I think 1938. There is a picture of it in = Blanton, and we were very caught up in that whole spirit, I, at least, having gone first to Oberlin, where Holtkamp was then King, and, I still think, deservedly so. I seem to recall that this was a monastic establishment, = quite large, and a very tall building. The trek up to the organ loft in the west =   gallery was a serious climb. I wish I could remember more of what my 1960s =   ears thought of the instrument. We were given free access to it for as = long as we wanted, and I believe it was a surprisingly mild instrument, = compared to the postwar instruments, which were certainly more robust. We were = filled with the spirit of seeing a great and important monument in the history of =   the Organ, and were a bit nonplussed that the people at the church just = saw it as a plain old church organ, one that had given good service, however. = We really did think the whole world revolved around our interest in the Pipe Organ, or at least, we thought it ought to. Perhaps one should never lose that naive hope! I do hope the organ is still there.   Malcolm Wechsler (who played for very few this holiday Sunday).
