(back) Subject: Sibelius question (X-posted) From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Thu, 22 Nov 2001 08:52:52 -0800   Sibelius users: anybody know how to make the versicle and response signs in text in Sibelius? Are they in a text font somewhere? They don't seem to be under "Symbols" ...   HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL!   Cheers,   Bud    
(back) Subject: Jardine information From: "William T. Van Pelt III" <wvanpelt@erols.com> Date: Thu, 22 Nov 2001 12:00:22 -0500   Dear Chris,   The Organ Historical Society fully owns and maintains the world's largest collection of publications and other materials having to do with the pipe organ. The OHS American Organ Archives are located in Talbott Library of Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey (a part of Rider University).   I know that the collection contains at least one list of organs published late in the firm's history (it was out of business by late 1899 or 1900). There is also a list published by the firm in 1869.   It is likely that you could find this organ on the opus list. It is also likely that it was mentioned in a newspaper published at the time of its installation and/or dedication. It was not unusual for entire stoplists to be published in newspaper accounts of new organs. A search of newspapers would surely turn up something.k   I suggest that you contact the Archivist of the Organ Historical Society, Stephen Pinel, at spinel@worldnet.att.net and ask your questions about this organ. Stephen has limited time available to answer inquiries but this particular topic falls well within his own personal area of historical interest, as well. If Stephen cannot, personally, look this organ up in the opus list for you, he can set an appointment to meet you at the Archives so that you may have access to the materials and conduct the research, yourself.   Thanks for your interest in old organs. Jardines were often especially fine, tonally, and were almost always very well built.   Where are these pipes, now!   Bill Van Pelt Organ Historical Society

I made a manual copy in Word and cut to size and taped them to my monitor. I just copied the one's I would use and the Alt. numbers. I'm not sure which symbols you mean, but you will probably find them in the alt. menu.   Ron

WAY outta my depth here ...   Cheers,   Bud    
(back) Subject: Re: Sibelius help (X-posted) From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Thu, 22 Nov 2001 13:36:19 EST   Hi Bud   If the Meinrad-b Gregorian Chant font is downloadable from a sourse just put it into windows, (MAC I have never used)! From Sibelius you should be able to access any down loaded font and use it. Just click on font and find the desired one and click on it.   Try this: http://www.music.princeton.edu/chant_html/fonts.html   Here you'll find all the available Gregorian Chant fonts, and how to obtain them.   Regards,   Ron Severin
