(back) Subject: NYC High Shools Organs From: "COLASACCO, ROBERT" <RCOLASACCO@popcouncil.org> Date: Tue, 24 Jul 2001 15:43:47 -0400   I don't know if anyone on this list would be familiar with the history of what I'm about to talk about but I for one would be interested in knowing about the installation of Organs in NYC High Schools which obviously took place from the beginning of the last century until, well, I really don't know when, but I'd guess the '30s or '40s. It was, in fact, the organ at = my high school in the Bronx that inspired me to study the organ. I also know = of other high schools in the Bronx that have (had?) pipe organs and therefore assume they exist in other boroughs. And the organ case, was quite lovely = in my school, Morris High School built in 1902. The case was a mahogany wood carved gothic (neo?) work of art even with the Board of Ed seal carved = into it. The organwas (is?) a three manual moller and I have no idea when it = was installed. We had one teacher in the Music department who played it at assemblies even though he wasn't an organist (he was a clarinetist by profession) but he played quite well...he was an excellent keyboardist and all around musician and was quite accomplished in some pedal technique. = When I told him I was interested he just handed me the key one day to turn on = the blower and said go play your heart out. Which I did to the regret of the classes being held on the 2nd and 3rd floors... organum plenum was quite forceful. It was a good sounding instrument but set back into the stage which wasn't all that deep but deep enough not to allow the auditorium to fill with it's sound as much as it could. Anyway would anyone know why the Bd of Ed. of NYC would install such wonderful instruments in it's high schools? I certainly don't mean to sound like I'm against it. I wish they had only kept up the maintenance. But already on the 1960s when I was = there they were falling, or had fallen I should say, into disrepair. By the way the fellow who had the contract to maintain them (minimally--he tuned = them) was named Ochse...we prounced it Ox. I've forgotten his first name. Sound familiar?

(back) Subject: Re: When the talkies came into church. From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Tue, 24 Jul 2001 15:54:17 EDT   Hi Alan:   Could the case be made that when worship styles changed and ministers began talking more, and performing the Communion rites less, that organs became less important? You could say this is when Talkies came into the church. During the 60's entertainment thinly veiled as worship and a dumbing down of the church music, and a move to the hootnanny style, changed things. Tradition went right along with the Communion = rites, out the door, to be supplimented by the personality cults. In most cases the congregations were shocked, but were told, it will grow on you. Well this movement seems to be dying down, but a lot of good people left. I subbed for a Lutheran congregation 4 yrs. ago where the minister insisted on accompanying the organ on his Saxaphone of all things, during hymns. It shocked me! Yes the Communion Service took a back seat. Did this ploy fill the church? Not on your life. 25-40 people showed up every Sunday in a bldg. seating 500. They could hardly raise the sub fee let alone the minister's salery. I wonder if they are still experimenting?   Ron Severin

They do not have a web site but = Cheryl took my order and is very personable and customer oriented. They do fantastic work and are more than competitive on pricing with a good turn-around time. Highly recommend Hesco.   Jim Pitts
