The stop list on the internet is not quite accurate. = There are some things that have changed over the last couple years. We = are not adding anything to the organ, rather we are currently replacing worn = out ranks (pipes that don't hold tuning or voicing anymore). The organ is currently at 293 ranks (without the digital stuff). We are currently replacing the Celestial reeds (7") with new AS style reeds (5") from Bob Schopp. Bob also recently built us a 16' 8' Holztrompette (completely = wood!) to replace the old Moller trumpet unit in the Gallery Great. It is wonderful!! It sounds rather like a Fagotto and blends well. The = principals in the Gallery Great and Celestial have all been replaced by Ruffatti. = There are also a few other things that aren't as they appear on the internet. = I'm working on getting our Internet Dep't to put the updated stoplist on the = CC Website. More on this soon! Thanks!   Chris P.

Firstly, a VAST amount of our literature was written for public worship. Secondly, the VAST MAJORITY are in chruches that we serve. Do you suggest =   that useing, God forgive the term, "Sacred Music" is a turn off to those with theologically unformed minds? Come now old boy, that cant be so!   I see it quite the opposite. Organ recitals get people in the doors that might not otherwise get any churching at all. You seem to sugggest that being an organist isnt a sacred art. I couldnt agree with you less.   One of the reasons "pop" hymnody has become popular is because the good sturdy hymns have fallen by the wayside.

(back) Subject: Re: program Sunday (Playing Level) From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Fri, 13 Jul 2001 17:44:45 EDT   Dear Craig:   The ONLY thing we can do is keep plugging away. Aberrations are promoted for all the wrong reasons. As you know. Our dissatisfaction with the = current turn of events will right itself eventually. We have to work hard against = the Principalities and Powers that would dictate otherwise. In otherwords = evil! The traditions are still there, just like the flag waving at Fort Sumpter after a fierce battle. The flag tattered and torn, but still flying proudly.   Instruments built during the neobaroque era were just so many aberrations. Tradition has a strong will to survive all battles and all wars, no matter how fierce. Many casualties may be strewn about, but the faithful, some = the worst for wear will survive, and rebuild again. It's a way of pruning away = the dead wood, so the plant can live again. Rise from the ashes like Phoenix to fly again. Men lose their way, even if they think they are moving in = the right direction. There is always guidence even at the height of the storm. Get back on the narrow path, get back, to true values and all will be well with you. We are pilgrims after all in a strange land. Authority faulters because of weak men, it returns renewed, and stronger, ever stronger.   Keep your resolve, never hide it, or your light under a bushel basket set on a hill. Let the light shine brightly as never before!   Ron Severin

It reads:   *************************** Our museum is in process of renovation and would like to get rid of our beautiful Estey Reed organ - do you know of anyone interested in or around the Southern CA area? ****************************   There was a photo with the email which shows what looks like a 2 manual (and most likely pedals although I can't see them) Estey with a pipe top - don't know the model number. It looks like the organ is set up in a room that resembles a chapel or the recreation of a chapel.   If anyone is interested in the Southern California area i will be glad to forward a copy of the photo to you if you writ eme PRIVATELY - not on the list.   I will also be forwarding this to the Reed Organ list   David
