(back) Subject: Severance Hall Skinner From: "William T. Van Pelt III" <wvanpelt@erols.com> Date: Fri, 19 Jan 2001 07:50:39 -0500   Dear List:   The very nice response from Don Lee, Executive Producer of Performance Today, explains why the poor technical quality prevented Performance Today from broadcasting more of the Severance Hall concert. It was a good letter, and several of us have received it.   I believe we might now suggest that arrangements should be made to record the next concert to NPR standards, so that we can be sure to hear a good sample of it.   Certainly Mr. Lee will confirm that he will do or has already done this!   I sent my suggestion along these lines last night.   Bill  
(back) Subject: Bach Scores on CD-ROM From: "William T. Van Pelt III" <wvanpelt@erols.com> Date: Fri, 19 Jan 2001 08:59:06 -0500   All of the organ works of Bach (including doubtful attributions like the Eight Little Preludes and Fugues) are now available as printable files on a CD-ROM for $17.50 (sorry, we couldn't do it for $16.85) to OHS members and $18.95 to everybody else from http://www.ohscatalog.org   The CD-R contains more than 900 pages of sheet music and also include Art of Fugue and Musical Offering, as well as all of the organ music (with the possible exception of newly found works in very recent editions that could not be included because of copyright issues).   We are told by the producer that these scores are selected from several respected editions, but they are not named. As we become more familiar with this very useful and convenient CD-ROM we will attempt to identify the editions.   Bill  
(back) Subject: Settings of the Gloria (RC) From: "Eric" <ech1275@home.com> Date: Fri, 19 Jan 2001 09:32:27 -0500   Carlo, I used to use Peter Jones Glory To God at a both my previous positions. = Its great with cantor singing verses and assembly singing the glory to god in the highest part. My new post forced me to use the all too common Mass of Creation. After careful consideration I have decided to change that and = we are teaching the congregation Stephen Janco's Gloria. Again it is in a responsorial fashion cantor - verses, assembly refrain. I ordered Janco's Mass of Saints and Angels from GIA. Maybe we can do away with all of the Mass of Creation. As for now we are still using the Haugen Sanctus etc. It's my hope to break the contemporary/lounge act this church is used to = and push Richards Proulx music on them. The pastor who is also fairly new to the scene there love Proulx's, Chepponis, and others. For Christmas the choir learned the Andrews/Biery Gloria from A New Mass for Congregations (GIA) which everyone loved. Easter I plan to use the Janco. In my = opinion the Gloria should be in a major key not in minor in the case of Mass of Creation. I explained this to the pastor and choir and they seem to all agree and accept my decision to change it. Good Luck -Eric-

You should try it. It changes the entire mood of it <G>   Carlo

(back) Subject: Update on Skinner project From: "Rick Sweeney" <rts@magrathea.com> Date: Fri, 19 Jan 2001 13:01:40 -0500   Hello folks,   About 6 months ago I joined this list looking for advice on an organ restoration/replacement project. We were midway through our work and muddled down in trying to learn all we could on the subject. My original postings are in the archives at these URLs and subject headings:   http://www.pipechat.org/archives/2000/june/digest1443.html - New list member, looking for opinions   http://www.pipechat.org/archives/2000/june/digest1452.html - Our Skinner project (long)   I really appreciate the advice and help that many people so generously offered, it helped us in many ways. At that time, a number of people asked =   me to keep the group informed as to how things were progressing. There's lots to report! We discovered that things inside our organ weren't all as =   peachy as they should be. We discovered one pipe with a paper towel stuffed inside, a small pipe stuffed with a q-tip, and duct tape over worn = spots in the leather. Also, the "witches hats" below the swell motor were = missing, and replaced with generous amounts of duct tape. There is also a rubber hose pinched closed with a clothespin, effectively turning off the = Cornopean pipes because of a hole in the hose. (This is about to be repaired). = However, there is a bright side. We were delighted to discover that many of the original pipes that we thought were lost are still there, but revoiced. = After all of our organ visits, consultants, parish events, and proposals, we have decided on a course of action.   What we've decided to do is restore and enhance our 1923 EM Skinner instrument. We have a proposal from Joseph Rotella of the Spencer Organ Company that completely fits our wants and needs. In phases, we'll be rebuilding the wind chests, swell box, blower system, leathers, hoses, electrical, etc. The second phase includes cleaning the organ chamber, revoicing pipes to their original specs, expanding the great division, and =   building a new wind chest and casework that projects the organ a bit out = into the chancel. The third phase includes incorporating a rebuilt Skinner console, originally from the National Cathedral. We'll have a restored Skinner organ, with additional ranks in the Great which will allow it to = support congregational singing. We are all VERY excited about this project.   Where we are at right now is the early phase of presenting this to the congregation, and especially to the vestry. There is the expected = "sticker shock" that comes with such an undertaking, and in a move to counter that we are on a quest for fundraising ideas, and searching for some grant money. Why I'm back posting this is to ask if anybody can offer advice on =   where to look for funds, and how to best approach fundraising. I'm sure = that many have gone this route before, and we'll be better off by having this = type of info up front. The parish annual meeting is a week from Sunday, at = which time our committee (the OTF, or Organ Task Force) will present it's = findings and recommendations. If I could have a little info by then to show that fundraising for such a project isn't impossible, we'll be much better off. = Keep in mind that this is a small parish, with mostly working class people. Big =   donations will be hard to come by.   Thanks in advance for any advice, and if anybody has questions on the project I'd be most happy to answer them.   Regards,   Rick (rts@magrathea.com)   (Church of the Holy Name: www.ultranet.com/~chn)  
(back) Subject: Stephen Tharp in Allentown From: "Stephen Williams" <stepwill@enter.net> Date: Fri, 19 Jan 2001 14:32:59 -0500   Hi all . . . just wanted to let you know that Stephen Tharp will be = playing a concert on Sunday, January 21 at 4 p.m. at St. John's Ev. Lutheran = Church in downtown Allentown, Pennsylvania.   Stephen is Associate Organist at St. Bartholomew's Church in New York. He has become quite a notable figure in the organ-playing world through hundreds of recitals across the country and fourteen intercontinental = tours. His brilliance as a performer with multi-faceted skills really comes to light in his recent CD recordings. I have been impressed and amazed by all of them, but particularly his World Premiers and Transcriptions (Vol.1) recorded at St. Mary the Virgin in New York (Ethereal Label). All I can = say is that it's an incredible experience that is not soon forgotten!   Stephen's program for Sunday will be:   Overture from Music for the Royal Fireworks / Handel transcribed and adapted by Stephen Tharp   Berceuse a la memorie de Louis Vierne (1974) / Pierre Cochereau "transcribed" by Frederic Blane from an LP recording   Three movements from Livre du Saint Sacrement (1984) / Olivier Messiaen I Adoro te XI L'apparition du Christ ressuscite a Marie-Madeleine XVIII Offrande et Alleluia Final _________   Sonata on the 94th Psalm / Julius Reubke   The organ is a IV/87 1938 EM Skinner rebuilt and enlarged in 1993 by The Reuter Organ Company. There is an admission charge for this concert of $10 = - students $5. If the weather cooperates (fingers crossed), it would be = great to see some of you there. If you need directions, e-mail or phone 610.435.1641. Have a great week-end!   Cheers, Stephen Williams

That was FUN! Whole ROOMFUL of toys, and more Leslies than the law ALLOWS! (grin).   They're making the CHURCH MODEL again, still with water-fall keyboards and with 25 pedals (grin), but with a Pedal to Great Bass coupler, and a Great to Pedal coupler.   They have a black box, similar to Allen and Rodgers ... that was hooked to the Church Model ... it was STRANGE to be getting sampled pipe sounds out of a C-3, or whatever they call it now (grin).   Their new three-manual church organ was indeed on display ... couldn't tell a whole lot about it because a jazz combo and a B-3 were WAILING most of the time I was there. I got the impression it was made by Electronium ... the dude said "Europe", but didn't specify. The console was very Johannus and European. So was the sound ... what I could hear of it (grin).   The stop-list is unremarkable ... your basic American Classic small three-manual ... 32' Violone and 32' Bombarde in the Pedal, full reed choruses on Swell and Great. I'll post it if anybody wants to see it.   General impressions: the SOUND is MUCH improved from the days of my 825; reliablity ... well, the new 925 on the floor had a Pedal cypher (grin) .... MOST embarrassing to the "suits" from the factory. And of COURSE I was the one to notice it. I'd say the sound is about on a par with the newer Baldwins and/or Johannus. The three-manual was too germanic and chiffy for my taste, but there are all sorts of adjustments that can be made at the console.   In general, my impression was that the organs had TOO many gadgets, and they're scattered all over the consoles in a not-terribly-organized fashion.   Didn't get a price on the three-manual (should have, I guess, but I wasn't interested) ... the 925 goes for about $25K; the 825 listed for $15K ten years ago, so I guess that's about right. They didn't have the larger two-manual (little cousin to the three-manual) on the floor, or if they did, I didn't see it, so I don't know how much it lists for.   They can replace all the boards on my 825, providing the factory still has them in stock ... just like I tried to tell the Vestry two years ago, parts are NOT going to be available for the 825 much longer.   His assessment of what's wrong with our 825, based on what I told him, is that it took a hit, either from a lightning strike or a power surge before the surge protector was added right after I came to St. Matthew's. So it's going to have to have ALL the boards replaced and everything ELSE gone through to find any hidden damage.   I have to decided whether or not I want to do that ... it will depend on how much it costs. The Hammond has to play for approx. five more years until the pipe organ happens, but if it starts getting up into the $30K-$40K range we might as well do something else (grin) for the interim.   So that was my Friday morning adventure (grin) ...   Cheers,   Bud

Remember, this list was set-up to talk about all organs not just pipe organs although the topics seem to usually revolve around pipe organs.   I was interested in your report since, although I didn't start like some did on a Hammond, I have played many of them over the years and am glad to hear of what is new with them. Now if i could just find a Model E that was reasonable and close!! <G>   David -- **************************************** David Scribner Owner / Co-Administrator PipeChat   http://www.pipechat.org mailto:admin@pipechat.org

There i discovered many posts about network problems today/tonight and have checked a couple of the Backbone Status pages i use from time to time.   There are a whole bunch of outages not only around the country but also overseas so your problems with connecting to RTR might be that you are having problems with getting a good connection to their server. I have been running RTR via RealAudio for about 20 minutes now and the signal tonight has been less than perfect.   David
