We are driving over tonight for the concert. Both of us are pictured on the Nichols and Simpson web pages under the employee link - http://www.nicholsandsimpson.com   I happened to think about making this announcement this morning just prior to leaving home and at that point my laptop was disconnected and packed for the trip.   And while you are on the company web site you can see the "progress" photo of the new instrument we are installing at Northridge Presbyterian Church in Dallas.

Although the music of Franz Schmidt was discussed on another list it hasn't been discussed here. And Ray's posting saying that people should go read the archives of the other list is very rude to the members of this list. If you don't want to read about it then use your delete key!!   Actually, remember, there are only TWO people that can put an end to a topic on this list and that is Tim and I. And if I am not mistaken, Tim even asked that the topic be elaborated upon. So the topic is completely ON-TOPIC!!! Much more so than some of the other topics recently discussed, which may I add, neither of us have ruled off-topic and put an end to some of them like the Turntable topic.   Over the years of administering this list I have learned MUCH from all the members. That is what this is all about. And i feel that we need to encourage members to post, ask questions and give answers, provided we do it in a respectful way to the other members of the list. It is a GREAT resource and I don't think any one of us knows everything there is to know - I know I don't!!   And now off to Fort Wroth to hear Peter Conte!! <G>   Happy PipeChatting!!!   David -- **************************************** David Scribner Owner / Co-Administrator PipeChat   http://www.pipechat.org mailto:admin@pipechat.org

(back) Subject: Re: Size of organ From: "Antoni Scott" <ascott@epix.net> Date: Tue, 03 Apr 2001 20:31:03 -0400   To the List:   Three organs come to mind when the "size" of the organ is mentioned. The recording by Pierre Froidebise on the organ at Saint-Laurent d'Alkmaar, FRENCH ORGAN MASTERPIECES OF THE 17TH AND 18TH CENTURY was the first organ that shocked me. Michel Colin on the Yves Cabourdin organ of St. Raphael was also a shock, but THE most surprising was the organ at Stephanus Church at Hasselt, Holland, played by Willem van Suijdam. This small organ of some 26 ranks sounds big. The common thread throughout all three organs is the abundant mixtures.     Antoni Scott

There was a discussion about it a few years ago regarding how the recorded sound was substantially different from the sound of the organ when heard "live". The recordist suspended the microphones up close to the organ using a pair of helium balloons.   Stan Lowkis
