(back) Subject: My Friends Think I'm Nuts From: "Mike Gettelman" <mike3247@earthlink.net> Date: Tue, 01 May 2001 20:00:32 -0400   On the lighter side------   I have had a great many interests in my 51 years of life, but my latest infatuation with the pipe organ and its music (aside to Peter--note correct usage) has my friends worried about my mental health. I buy organ pipes on Ebay, I go to concerts at Severance Hall, I hang around Oberlin College to hear the students practice, and yes, I play organ music all the time on my stereo. I am even trying to find space to install a pipe organ that was given to me, and all my vacations are planned around seeing some organ or another. Yes, I am truly hooked.   I have a powerful stereo on my tool bench at work, and whenever I have a chance, I play tapes of Pipedreams programs I have recorded over the years. My current interest is in classical literature, and most everybody tells me it sounds like funeral music. Talk about the unwashed! Yesterday I happened across one of the lighter moments on a Pipedreams program. (I wonder if Michael will remember it). It is a recording made on a nameless old French carousel organ entitled "Under the Double Eagle" As the tune was playing at a reasonable volume, my boss happened by, and asked me to "turn it up". I cranked the volume up about half way, and soon everybody was coming to my station, and some even began to dance. I had to play the tune about 5 more times before everybody was satisfied. I was asked for more of the same kind of music, but unfortunately, I had none. I will be getting some in the near future for sure. The point I am trying to make with all of this is, attracting people to the organ with classical literature is a very hard sell. Unless someone has an appreciation for such music already, trying to gain interest with Bach, Widor, Messiaen, and other classical composer's music seems like beating a dead horse. But play a light piece, or a popular tune, and they come a running. Perhaps we should think about providing more such light fare to attract supporters to the organ so that the lovers of classical literature can be assured of instruments to enjoy their type of music in perpetuity. It seems a small price to pay.   Opinions welcomed   Cheers Mike Gettelman

Many > smaller churches in the Midwest had one manual reed organs   And these were indeed cheap. Very, very, cheap. Generally about 1/3 the cost of a piano. But I still rather like the sound of them. More in fact than I like electronic substitutes. And some churches still use them very effectively. The oldest church building in the Mid West situated west of the Mississippi is the St. John's Episcopal Church in Eolia, Missouri. It is a fine Greek Revival building dating from 1845. It was the church that the Lewis's and Clark's and Merriwether's (as in Merriwether Lewis) = belonged to, and many of them are buried in the churchyard. There is a nice tablet on the side of the church saying that Mr. Merriwether's slaves specially made 100,000 bricks for building the church. The slaves, actually, had their own Episcopal Church nearby in Clarksville, Mo., and on being freed one of them became an Episcopal Priest and founded the still flourishing church of All Saints', St. Louis. The church in Eolia has an elderly = Estey reed organ, and I am glad to say that recently, rather than replacing it with an electronic substitute, they went to great lengths to have it lovingly restored. Some of us in St. Louis (notably members of St. Mark's and Trinity Episcopal Churches) like nothing better on warm summer = evenings than to go up to Eolia and sing choral evensong, where we are always very well received by the congregation and given excellent baked goodies for = our efforts. Anyway, on such occasions the Estey reed organ gives a very good account of itself.   John Speller

(back) Subject: Re: Organ Building From: <Wurlibird1@aol.com> Date: Tue, 1 May 2001 21:38:38 EDT   Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear -   Regarding smaller and rural churches affording pipe organs at the turn of = the 1900's, there were a lot of fund raisers that may have helped purchase = small pipe organs. Not the least of these were grocery labels such as Campbell Soup labels, box tops from certain foodstuffs such as 3-Minute Oats, etc. =   Other products offered "premiums" to purchasers of their wares. Sort of a =   pre-S&H Green Stamp campaign. Now I have no idea the redemption rate for these labels, tops and coupons but they were used to help church and charitable organizations raise funds for projects.   Remembering that families ate most of their meals at home during this = period of time, it is conceivable that quite a large number could be accumulated. = It would be intersting to know just how these "save the label" campaigns contributed to organ purchases and to what extent.   Jim Pitts,   Old enough to remember S&H, Scotch and Valu-Rite stamps. Thankfully, = Scotch survived in its more consumable form. :)
