(back) Subject: Re: Where the ORGAN is KING! POE Danbury(1) From: "Jackson R. Williams II" <jackwilliams_1999@yahoo.com> Date: Fri, 27 Jul 2001 02:53:08 -0700 (PDT)   I personally love Malcom's reviews. His enthusiasm for the organ and the efforts of those who play it is boundless and should be an inspiration for all of us, particularly those who go to AGO conventions and spend their energy criticizing the performances. We all have seen those types; they are plenty. They rip to shreds those who are giving their honest creative efforts to create something beautiful. Malcom recognizes and appreciates those who seek to find something fresh in their performances.   But dear Malcom, may I take a slight, loving exception to something you wrote in your POE review? Namely, the following:   <<Variations on "America:" . . . Charles Ives, Danbury's great composer. The only other organist I have heard play these with the perfect and requisite jauntiness was Simon Preston, who brought a dose of British "camp" to the proceedings. Tom's not even British, but by golly, he's got it.>>   Charles Ives was a disinctly American composer whose only British connection might be construed in the fact that he was born and raised in New England. Now, of course, "America" is a rebellious version of "God Save the Queen", and we all know whose national anthem THAT is!!   However, what makes the Ives work distinctly American is its eclectism in style. What better artists to identify with this music than the Americans, whose country gave rise to a thoroughly eclectic culture? Aren't Americans equally as campy as the British? Certainly, an AGO convention has its share of camp! (I imagine the British equivalent of the AGO behaves far more seriously than we do when they get together.) However, I will concede to you that the Ives Variations have a certain Monty Python-ish character about them (even though composed way before Eric Idle and his troup came to prominence). Interestingly enough, My two favorite recordings of the Ives, though both radically different, are Virgil Fox's on the Wurlitzer in Kansas City, and E. Power Biggs' on the Fisk at Harvard University. Virgil's is, as Virgil was, an "in-your-face" performance. Biggs' performance is more subtle, but extremely tongue-in-cheek nonetheless, and that is how why it is so charming.   I hope you don't mind me focusing on the British-American part of your review, but it was, in a marvelous way, thought-provoking. Have a great day and keep up your wonderful work, dear Malcom. Jack Williams   __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?

(back) Subject: Shiloh Tabernacle From: "John L. Speller" <jlspeller@mindspring.com> Date: Fri, 27 Jul 2001 18:50:29 -0500   While looking for something else I came across a reference in the online index of The Diapason to a recital given by William Middelschulte on August 12, 1912, at Shiloh Tabernacle, Zion City, Illinois. According to the report in The Diapason, the recital attracted a crowd of 8,000 people.   This kindled my interest and I looked up the Shiloh Tabernacle on the internet. The Zion City webpage has some interesting postcards from the 1930's, including one of the vast though somewhat ugly Shiloh Tabernacle, at   http://ourzion.com/history/postcard/shilohtb.html   and even one of the organ, described as having electro-pneumatic action, at   http://ourzion.com/history/postcard/organ.html   The organ looks large, and indeed must have been substantial to fill such an enormous room. Can anyone tell us more, such as who built it, details of its size and scope, and what became of it?   John Speller
