I am overwhelmed. I would like to answer each one personally, but the subject matter of my prior e-mail pretty much tells you all that I've bitten off a great deal and am chewing as fast as I can, to paraphrase Joyce Jones. Rick has installed the new computer, and everything looks different, both on the screen and in my loft - it is destroyed. Maybe I need to have a loft sale. I printed off my old address book from the old computer, and it is the size of DeFuniak Springs. There are people on there I have never talked to - scary. I have pulled a back muscle or pinched a nerve, either moving church furniture or trying to hide the angel tree topper's Indian headdress with a huge gold and white bow from hell made by one of my clerks, a former florist. It's the prettiest bow with matching streamers I've ever seen - when I walked in my office and saw it this morning, I thought I was getting married again. The show must go on, and God willing, tomorrow's the night. Two notes are suddenly out on the organ, and both the tuner and my engineer repairman are out of state. Your prayers are coveted, and thanks again.

The channelboard is still fed by = a single pouch, or two operating in tandem, but the mixture ranks still = speak on common wind channels. SMG  
(back) Subject: Re: Mixture tuning hints (Longish) From: "douglas morgan" <dkmorgan76209@yahoo.com> Date: Thu, 6 Dec 2001 19:15:57 -0800 (PST)   I once maintained an old Moller (1949) that had a Mixture IV on the great which was on its own 4-stop pitman chest, and each rank had its own stop action with switches. I threw this mixture out, and on rank one, I put a channel board on which stands a Fourniture IV; on the second rank, I put another channel board on which stands a Scharf III; on the third rank went another channel board on which stands a Sesquialtera II, and on the fourth rank went a new 2' Flute.   You should have seen the size of that chest which now has 10 ranks of pipes on it, and isn't a bit crowded.   D.

(back) Subject: shoes and feet (x-posted) From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Thu, 06 Dec 2001 19:54:10 -0800   This discussion about shoes (on one list or the other) brings up a curiosity: when I had the stroke two years ago, my left side (arm and leg) were affected. I have since recovered the use of both, but I have to LOOK at the pedals when I go for anything below a G with my left foot .... if I don't, I'm INVARIABLY off by a whole-step (up).   Anybody have any idea WHY? Otherwise, everything works fine, more-or-less ...   Cheers,   Bud    
(back) Subject: Seeking a recommendation . . . From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@aic-fl.com> Date: Thu, 6 Dec 2001 22:25:36 -0600   This is a multi-part message in MIME format.   ------=3D_NextPart_000_0001_01C17EA4.F1164770 Content-Type: text/plain; charset=3D"us-ascii" Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit   Money is being made available to purchase a reed for the tiny organ at St. Agatha's - now the decision is what reed. The organ builder wants something in the trumpet family; the contributor started out wanting a krummhorn, but is now gravitating toward a trompette/trompete (however you want to spell it). I believe they are about to converge, but they keep looking to me to decide so that they can contravene my decision. I want the organ builder to be happy because his name is on the organ for posterity, and the contributor because it's his money. I want something that will be as stable as possible, will play a goodly amount of literature that is possible on the tiny instrument, and will work well on both a solo and chorus basis - in short, something as versatile as possible. I have learned not to set my heart on something in particular, so that's as specific a desire as I have formed. After this stressful week I would almost ask for the money and run to Bermuda with it rather than spend it at the church from hell, but of course I'm not going to do that. The picture and stoplist are at: http://www.pensacola-ago.org/organs/stagadfs.html The independent ranks are 16' lieblich gedeckt, 8' principal, 8' gemshorn, 8' flute, and 4' flute. The 2' and 1 3/5' comes from the 4" flute, and the 2 2/3' from the gemshorn, if I recall correctly. It was the organ builder's plan to complete the organ with a reed and a small mixture. I believe it is thought that the reed will be at 4' on the swell and in the pedal at this time, with maybe a possibility of an 8' extension. Space is at a premium. What think ye? I don't even know if what I have written makes sense, because it's past my bedtime, and I've had a hydrocodone for the back pain, and a White Russian a little later to help me admire the Christmas tree. So if it makes sense and you have an opinion, let's hear it.

(back) Subject: Re: Seeking a recommendation . . . From: <mts@intergrafix.net> Date: Thu, 06 Dec 2001 23:50:59 -0500   Hmmm, Interesting.   Personally I think I would like some sort of a light trompette or oboe or hautbois. A krummhorn would be nice, but at 4' much effect would be lost. A light trompette or something would probably work well in chorus and solo, as it sounds like versatility is one of the keys with this smaller instrument. Maybe even a shorter length resonator reed would be an option, they need not be ruled out by limited heights. Mitred resonators are possble also. Without an 8' reed, (if I understand your message correctly) the decision would have to be a careful one. Knowing a little more about the proposed mixture would help also. Good luck   Chris Malocheski   PS: You could always fit a Vox Humana or a Rankett in there!!! ;-)
