(back) Subject: Re: flamboyant gift for myself From: "Paul Valtos" <chercapa@enter.net> Date: Sun, 6 May 2001 17:22:26 -0400   Dear Carlo, I would recommend that you contact a Msg Pierkowski in Dickson City, Pa. St. Mary's BVM has the same architecture inside as St. Francis Xavier, Green Bay, Wisconsin.You probably have seen pictures of the Wicks installation there. If you could take some pictures of it or get some pictures of it when the parish was still functional you could probably = sell it for more than you paid for it and maybe Wicks could stick it on. This used to be my parish church when I was a child. The organist who just retired was a good friend of mine, a Loraine Kowrach Hutchins. She graduated from either Boston U or Catholic U with a Doctorate in Organ Performance. Don;t hold me to all of the education stats as the = conversation concerning this happened many moons ago. ( Many years also, Don't believe that I will be 60 in June. Where have all the years gone?) It would be truely edifying to hear and see an organ of that caliber = in St. Mary's. It has had a TC-6 in there since 1962 when the church was remodeled the next to last time. It has served the parish well but I = think that your flamboyant gift would do wonders in a church of those acoustics and architecture.

(back) Subject: Wonderful Choral Concert From: "Roy Redman" <rredman@imagin.net> Date: Sun, 06 May 2001 18:36:39 -0500   While in New York on Saturday May 5, I was able to hear the concert of the London Symphony Chorus "A Festival of Czech Music" conducted by Stephen Westrop. This was one of the most exciting choral concerts I have ever heard!. A fine choir indeed, performing wonderful music flawlessly, but one of the star performers was certainly the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola. The church is described in the program as "one of New York City's acoustical treasures" which it certainly is. The new Mander organ, used in part of the program, certainly looked and sounded wonderful as well. Why do we persist in constructing buildings which are acoustically inferior and having our choirs sing and our organs play in these spaces, in which they can never sound their best? Roy Redman
