(back) Subject: Russian Organ music From: <AMADPoet@aol.com> Date: Sat, 17 Mar 2001 03:19:28 EST   Forgive my extreme ignorance...   Is there any Russian organ music out there? I think the closest I've come = is Scriabin piano music transcribed for the organ. Also what are some of the better organs in Russia (if any??) and who built them?   For some reason I've never associated the organ with Russia, though that could be because I don't know anything at all about the Greek Orthodox Church, and usually associate organs in general with church music.   Any thoughts?   Thanks, Mandy

These people must realize, however, that this isn't going to be like buying at TV at BestBuy! Good stuff costs money. The Leslies, if they buy the new 122XB from a Ham/Suz dealer, will set them back about $1600 retail apiece. I'd go for the 771...solid state, more power, clean as can be.   DeserTBoB --=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D_1495709= =3D=3D_.ALT Content-Type: text/html; charset=3D"us-ascii"   <html> At 02:49 AM 3/17/2001 -0500, you wrote:<br> <blockquote type=3Dcite class=3Dcite cite><font face=3D"arial" size=3D2>OK = heres the deal... <br> The church wants to keep the current organ (with tongue FIRMLY in cheek) and <br> add to it a total of eight Leslie speakers!&lt;snip&gt;</font></blockquote><br> That will help, but it'll still sound like a Hammond, only larger.<br> <br> <blockquote type=3Dcite class=3Dcite cite><font face=3D"arial" = size=3D2>They have decided they want 3 different switches- one to turn off and on the rear speakers, one to turn off and on the baptistery speakers, and one to turn off and on the main speakers... &lt;snip&gt;</font></blockquote><br> Old Hammond trick in churches from the early days...&quot;antiphonal channels&quot;.<br> <br> <blockquote type=3Dcite class=3Dcite cite><font face=3D"arial" size=3D2>So = now comes the difficult time of selecting just the right organ, which has, <br> thank God, been put in my hands... &lt;snip&gt;</font></blockquote><br> Go to your local Allen franchisee and play some Renaissance.&nbsp; You'll be favorably impressed.&nbsp; Since this place is obviously e-org land, no chance for pipes.&nbsp; Might as well get a good e-org!&nbsp; These people must realize, however, that this isn't going to be like buying at TV at BestBuy!&nbsp; Good stuff costs money.&nbsp; The Leslies, if they buy the new 122XB from a Ham/Suz dealer, will set them back about $1600 retail apiece.&nbsp; I'd go for the 771...solid state, more power, clean as can be.<br> <br> DeserTBoB</html>   --=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D_1495709= =3D=3D_.ALT--
