It appears to me that the people who do the attacking are usually the people who know the least. The organ world attracts its share of nutcases- more, perhaps, than any other facet of the musical world. These people, more often than not, have received their musical education of organ related matters from reading CD booklets rather than undertaking serious study (by serious study, I don't mean necessarily at the university level. This could also mean studying the informative books of people like Oches, Owen et al.). I take their attacks with a grain of salt, laugh them off, try not to suffer fools and press delete. As someone on this list so wisely put it, "(they) are nothing more to me than a name in my inbox."   Maybe there should be a list open to anyone who just feels like flaming. Therein lies the place for people to vent their ignorance.   Jack   --- TubaMagna@aol.com wrote: > Ladies and Gentlemen: > > I joined PipeChat because two men who I like and > respect administer this > list, and they thought that I might enjoy > participating.

I just have very little patience when someone declares that an instrument is not good enough for them to play, particularly when the whole world isn't beating down their door offering them engagements elsewhere.   I was not saying ZIP IT to the expression of one's opinion, but rather to the pretentious arrogance expressed by certain members of this list. Since ma letter appeared, by the way, I have received emails, both posted on teh list and sent to me privately, expressing unanimous support for my view on this. You are the only one who seems to feel that I meant to surpress the opinions of others. That's OK--I can understand the misunderstanding. I hope the above clears up what I was specifically addressing.

Even on PBS Newshour George Wright, Gaylord Carter, et al were never aired. Victor Borge made the list. Were these people invisible ?   Rick

Pleast list the real title (translation would be helpful), composer and arranger/editor, publisher and ordering = information.   Thanks for your help.   Yours,   Darryl by the Sea

(back) Subject: Follow-up From: "Administrator" <admin@pipechat.org> Date: Wed, 28 Mar 2001 07:05:28 -0600   Good morning Folks   First of all I have to say I am sorry that I came across the way I did last night in case anyone took offense with my ALL READ posting. But after reading Becky's note to me to be forwarded and then having about 4 1/2 hours of driving down here where I sat in the truck and mulled over what she wrote and then reading some of the postings that showed up when i got mail last night really sent me over the edge. I probably shouldn't have sent that out in anger but i was mad at the way some of you, and it is only some of you, were carrying on.   I have found it interesting that the posting that set me off was from a young person and that this morning I found a posting to the list from another of the young people, Josh, that appeared on the list. And that i also received a private posting from another of the young people, Jason Comet, that was along the same lines as Becky's and Josh's. And all of these posts/notes were much more mature than some of the drivel that has been appearing on the list these last several days.   These young people are the FUTURE of our profession and I hope and pray that we get more like them. And I think that all of us that are older and supposedly more mature can learn from them. But if we act like some of us have on this list recently we will drive them away. And I am not only talking about our actions on the list but I am sure that those actions also carry on towards the newcomers in our cities and towns and AGO Chapters.   As you know, both of us that Administer this list are Pipe Organ builders and we are very proud of the instruments that we produce. But if we collectively drive away the younger folks who will be around to play those instruments? A fine pipe organ is a work of art but it needs to be PLAYED and not just sit there and collect dust. Think about that one! And I know that Tim and I and our boss, who is also on the list, are not the only organbuilders that are members of this list. So I speak for all of them, several of these other builders are in the same place as we are - we need the new blood to continue to come along to be able to give "voice" to our instruments.   It seems that whenever the topic of electronic organs comes up it turns into a food fight. Let's face it folks, although many of us do not like what we heard from some of those instruments they are a fact of life and are here to stay. Not every church can afford or has the room for a pipe organ so at least they do have an option to at least have something resembling the real thing. And I do know that with proper voicing, usually from a pipe organ builder, some of these instruments can sound rather good. Unfortunately too many of these never have the careful voicing needed so they do sound bad. They may not be our ideal but at least they do keep the instrument in front of people. And they do provide jobs for some of us so let's not deride those that play them.   Sebastian brought up a good point in his posting last night, because of the attacks that seem to happen from several members there are others that are afraid to post and to ask questions. I want these attacks stopped so that everyone can feel "safe" in asking a question or making a comment. There are many very knowledgeable people on this list that are a very good resource for the rest of us. And we ALL can learn from them. That is if we keep an open mind but I have been getting the feeling that some of the members have very closed minds. If you can't reply to someone without being mean or putting the original posted down then don't post!!   Also, recently, some of the topics have gotten a bit out of hand and are not within the Guidelines for this list. Let us keep on-topic please. As a reminder of what is on-topic and what isn't I am going to post separately the List Guidelines immediately following this post.   Finally, i want to thank all of you that have posted either publicly or privately your support for what i said last night. I don't have the time to answer all of you personally but I do appreciate your support.   And now back to HAPPY PipeChatting!!   David   -- **************************************** David Scribner Owner / Co-Administrator PipeChat   http://www.pipechat.org mailto:admin@pipechat.org  
(back) Subject: Netiquette and Guidelines for the list From: "Administrator" <admin@pipechat.org> Date: Wed, 28 Mar 2001 07:05:45 -0600   Netiquette   1. Be kind to one another.   2. Please respect other list members points of view, we are all individuals and entitled to our opinions, that's what makes life interesting :):)   3. One rule applies absolutely -- NO FLAMING UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. The list owners will be reading each post and if we see flaming going on you will be warned once. If there is a repeat, you will be removed from the list.   Guidelines   1. Have fun. (It's the only polite thing to do here)   2. Make friends. (How do you make friends? Listen to other people. Validate their thoughts and feelings. Be willing to tolerate and accept them as they are. Have fun.)   3. Learn tolerance. Discuss ideas, rather than judging people.   4. Maintain a sense of humor. There's nothing like a good slice of humor for breaking up a flame war.   5. Use lots of smileys and poses. It is difficult to read tone of voice. This helps the humor impaired.   6. If something someone has said upsets you, ask for clarification first without the use of emotional language. They may have been joking or they may even reconsider their comments.   7. If someone on the PipeChat mailing list has written something which distresses you, you can always privately ask David or Tim to pummel some sense into them :) Do not use up mailing list bandwidth doing so yourself.   8. Please do not use up mailing list bandwidth explaining Netiquette to those poor lost newbies. It's not what this list is about. If you must, do so privately.   9. When responding to a message, quote only the relevant bits. No one is going to want to read your message if they have to dredge through miles of previous messages. Besides, it wastes bandwidth.   10. Please keep signatures to around four lines long.   11. Members of this list are allowed to wander off topic provided what they have to say is interesting or humorous.   12. Mail will be handled immediately by the List-Server. If there are any further delays, we apologize, however, they are out of our control.   13. Please reply generally to the list. However, please consider whether it would be better to reply to the individual rather than the list, thus reducing list traffic.   14. What to post? Anecdotes.... sadnesses.... joys.... Anything you feel comfortable posting. You will soon pick up if the list is going to respond to your topic.   15. Please think twice before posting. For those who are not on Digest form, it is very easy to overflow their mail boxes, please be considerate of others on the list.   16. What not to post! Items that have nothing at all to do with PipeChat and its guidelines--e.g. Virus warnings, Test messages, Chain letters, Church matters that are not music related or topics that are better dealt with by other lists.. If you feel uncertain as to the content of any email, please send it to the Admin address and we will guide you as to wether we feel it should be posted or not.   17. Finally, this is a place to enjoy yourself, feel relaxed about music, pipe organs, theater organs, church organs, electronic organs and church music. Make the list what you want it to be. And LOTS of HUMOR PLEASE :) -- **************************************** David Scribner Owner / Co-Administrator PipeChat   http://www.pipechat.org mailto:admin@pipechat.org

(back) Subject: Re: Harmonium (was Division of Labor) From: "Bob Elms" <elmsr@albanyis.com.au> Date: Wed, 28 Mar 2001 21:41:46 +0800   A harmonium is a reed organ where the reeds are BLOWN - i.e. the blower delivers compressed air to the reeds, usually built in Europe. With an American reed organ the bellows create a vacuum and the air is sucked through the reeds. The difference in sound is that the American organ sounds much sweeter; the harmonium has a rather harsh sound in comparison.

(back) Subject: Organists' Lives & Obituaries From: <TubaMagna@aol.com> Date: Wed, 28 Mar 2001 08:55:31 EST   Dear Rick:   Actually, Gaylord Carter DID get television coverage, some of it rather tastefully done, even if brief. But you are right, most organists don't OCCUR to the public, in life OR death.   Most classical musicians do not die foolish or dramatic deaths, and their obituaries, when televised, remain short and sweet. Obviously, forty or = more years from now, when the likes of Yo-Yo Ma go to the great Violoncello section in the sky, his personality and magnetism will make him more attractive to news writers. Isaac Stern and others who have been in the public eye will also probably be more likely to get on the evening news = AFTER their lifetimes.   Since the organ is not in the mainstream, and we do NOT have a Yo-Yo Ma, James Galway, Luciano Pavarotti, or Vladimir Horowitz for the organ, we = are at a disadvantage. While the very, very limited organ community has currently put their hopeful eggs in the basket of one particular youngster =   from overseas, his name is STILL news to MOST organists, and the chances = of him finding on "Good Morning America" or "The Today Show," dead or alive, = are slim.   Recent behaviour on this list is the type that drives young, interested students away from the organ, making them flee for their lives. They are either condescended to, or hear their colleagues bitterly attack each = others. What do these kids think? They think, "I don't want to be a victim of this, and I don't want to BECOME a person like this. The clarinet or violin looks safer."   Sebastian Matthaus Gluck New York City

This instrument was imported by Dom Moreno of the Benedictine Abbey in New Norcia Western Australia, and was sold to a country Methodist Church when the Dom died. I have no idea where the instrument is now. Incidentally it also had a fine Vox Celeste stop - very stringy.
