It's a 3 manual 1923 Moller, and most of the leather is original, but slowly failing. Some of the small thin pieces are like tissue paper, but they still work just fine. I play it every week.

(back) Subject: A Reger question. . . From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@access.aic-fl.com> Date: Sat, 22 Dec 2001 20:21:02 -0600   A friend gave me an early Christmas present: a CD of David Craighead playing the Rosales organ at Trinity Episcopal in Portland, 0regon. His choice of music is Reger's Second Sonata in D minor, op. 60, and Vierne's Sixth Symphony in B, op. 59.   In the second movement of the Reger, is that "Vom Himmel hoch" at the end, or did I spike the eggnog a little too heavily?   Dank ou,   Glenda Sutton (who is trying "Land of Lakes" eggnog instead of the usual Borden's this year, with Bacardi's instead of Wild Turkey, and who cannot for some reason read the program notes)

Make it yourself.   My mother's recipe:   Three quarts of milk One quart of heavy cream or Half and Half Two cups of sugar (or more, if it doesn't taste sweet enough) 4-6 beaten eggs   (have you ever known a Southern recipe to be EXACT?) (grin) ...   WELL, it depends on the size of the EGGS, and the sweetness of the cream = ...   vanilla to taste - about a teaspoon or two   Stir milk, cream, sugar and eggs together in a double boiler OVER (not IN) simmering (NOT boiling) hot water. Stir gently for 30 minutes, or until it thickens. Add vanilla. Serve warm or cold (Southerners drink it cold) with = a jigger or two of liquor (Mama used 1 of bourbon; Grandma used 2 of 'shine) to each glass and a sprinkling of nutmeg.   Traditionally served with home-made pound cake or fruit cake (if you can IMAGINE) ... one glass is an artery-slamming MEAL (grin).   Happy Holidays!   Bud   Glenda wrote:   > Glenda Sutton (who is trying "Land of Lakes" eggnog instead of the usual > Borden's this year, with Bacardi's instead of Wild Turkey, and who > cannot for some reason read the program notes) >
