Make sure the number lock light is on. Then hold down ALT and type in the appropriate four-digit code. For example for a dot in the pointing you could use ALT 0149 =95 For the obelus to indicate the second half of the chant use ALT 0134 =86 The bar line for pointing is of course already second row from the top, right hand key, on the main keyboard |   John Speller

The bench needs to be equally straddling the pedalboard, and at the most comfortable distance back or foreward. Use tape on the floor so the bench is always the same. Is the bench high enough? Bench should be 20 1/2" above middle E as a standard for someone of average Ht. taller need another inch, shorter need to be an inch = closer.

The bench needs to be equally straddling the pedalboard, and at the most comfortable distance back or foreward. Use tape on the floor so the bench is always the same. Is the bench high enough? Bench should be 20 1/2" above middle E as a standard for someone of average Ht. taller need another inch, shorter need to be an inch = closer. This is measured by plumbline, bench surface to middle E. The lowest manual should be 29 1/2 " above middle E pedal also by plumb.   There is really more than you need to know I guess pp. 198-199 Wm.

(back) Subject: Things I wish for in 2002 From: "Ken_Earl01" <ken_earl01@hotmail.com> Date: Fri, 28 Dec 2001 19:07:38 -0000   Hi all   One Steve laManna on another list asked what we would wish for in 2002.   Things I look forward to and wish for are :-   1. That the unique Hilsdon which STOPS are gradually putting together gets finished soon, along with their expansion plans for their wonderful little 'theatre organ heaven' in the Scottish Borders   2. That the same group get their National Institute of Theatre Organ = Studies Summer School event organised for this year (it had to be cancelled last year becasue of foot and mouth disease)   3. That the resident organist of the STOPS New Palace Centre gets the recoginition (and bookings) he deserves; Larry McGuire is one of the = unsung and unappreciated 'heroes' of the theatre organ world in my book, and deserves to go a lot further than he has.   Ken Earl    
(back) Subject: Re: e? From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Fri, 28 Dec 2001 14:13:16 EST   Hi Robert   You need a personal adjustable bench. Another suggestion, an old bench cut down from the top. If you cut the part that touches the floor you could be in big trouble as the bench could be sitting on the pedal board. The only other way is to have a custom bench made, and take it with you wherever you happen to play. E may be the center of the pedal board, but it's not the center of the operation C and E is. More notes in general are played from CCC to C25 so you swivel for the top ones. Oh! I almost forgot your nose should be between the e-f gap on the manuals. Have you ever tried a lowered Howard bench. It's like a swivel seat in dead center.   Ron Severin

That's over the limits. No, I will not do that. My bench, BTW, is okay at home. It's if and when I play elsewhere that a problem can arise. (but = that hasn't happened in over 20 years seeing as I hadn't played for 18 before I purchased my organ 2 years ago!) I've experienced very few places where there was any real problem. But to get back to the whole point, I agree = with all you've said, I was just questioning Ritchie's--actually the book is by Ritchie and Staufer, whom I like to call Richer and Stuffy--declamation in his book that e is the center or the pedal board and I was asking if = anyone else on the list was taught that. Most, of the few who replied, seem to agree with me, left foot c, right foot e, and that being the case then e = is not in the middle, rather d flat/d is the middle point. That was all I was trying to find out, who agrees with Richer and Stuffy. I don't.   -----Original Message----- From: RonSeverin@aol.com [mailto:RonSeverin@aol.com] Sent: Friday, December 28, 2001 2:13 PM To: pipechat@pipechat.org Subject: Re: e?     Hi Robert   You need a personal adjustable bench.

(back) Subject: A real mixture From: "COLASACCO, ROBERT" <RCOLASACCO@popcouncil.org> Date: Fri, 28 Dec 2001 14:42:00 -0500   I would like to hear a stop where each pipe for each key is of a different family, i.e., the C is a tuba pipe, C# is an Aeolian, D is a rohrflote, D# is a stopped diapason, E is a krumhorn, F is an harmonic flute, F# is a Salicional, G is a Tuba mirabilis, G# is a diapason, A is a Viola da = Gamba, etc. That, my friends, is a true mixture. THAT, my friends, would be a = VERY cruel April Fools trick to play on an organist.   Robert B.
