Either people like it, or find it boring. One = cannot please all. :-)   The suggested Sowerby pieces are wonderful. Also interesting is the Mass for Choir and two organs of Vierne.   BB Derby orge@dreamscape.com   ----- Original Message ----- From: Storandt, Peter <pstorandt@okcu.edu> To: 'PipeChat' <pipechat@pipechat.org> Sent: Friday, May 25, 2001 10:58 AM Subject: RE: music for Organ plus choir...

(back) Subject: Re: Keeping Skinner Combination Actions as they were From: "Douglas A Campbell" <dougcampbell@juno.com> Date: Sat, 26 May 2001 09:43:22 -0400   Regarding the Yale Skinner:   I am a firm believer in the "Form Follows Function" school and also believe in preserving the historical nature of truly worthy instruments.   The Yale organ is not in a museum. It is used ( and used heavily) every day. When you have many students trying to get time at the console and they have to take time to reset all the pistons at every practice session, it is simply not following the function of the instrument - that of being a teaching instrument. On the other hand, gutting the original E. M. Skinner console in favor of a Peterson combinaton system w/ many levels of memory doesn't sit well either!   How about building a second console? Leave the original alone - for use during recitals and concerts - and building a duplicate with the Solid State combination system for practice use ????   This, to me, would be the best possible situation.     Douglas A.
