It was always very busy and did a large mail order business, but I guess = there is more money in orange and black sweat shirts. "Westminster Music and Books" is in the student center at Westminster Choir College, and catering as it does to a large number of organ students, it has a pretty complete collection of suitable music and books, although nothing terribly off the beaten track. Patelson's, on W. 56th Street, opposite the Carnegie Hall stage door, is a great place to browse. They carry some used music and = books in good condition. The OHS catalogue is full of treasures, many of which = you will not find in a music store, so it certainly is well worth a look for music and much more. http://www.ohscatalog.org/ will get you right there, and while you are there, why not join the organization if you are not already a member. When you open the catalog page, you will see: "You have found pipe organ heaven!" Believe it!   Cheers,   Malcolm Wechsler   ----- Original Message ----- From: <ChPardini@aol.com> To: <pipechat@pipechat.org> Sent: Thursday, October 04, 2001 4:24 PM Subject: Re: Organ lit question     > In the NJ area, I would consider Westminster Music and Books, or Patelson's > in NYC are both good supply houses.

He is survived by his wife and two daughters.   The Right Rev. Brother John Charles, FODC, senior bishop and Ordinary of the Diocese of New Orleans, is Acting Metropolitan.   Jesu, mercy! Mary, pray!       Bud

I heard the dedicatory service on the web page http://www.gracecom.org. The tubas I have heard in this country are "fat" with none of the silvery tone of a trumpet. This one sounded to me more like the trumpets en chamade we hear in this country. The tubas we have, have not much high frequency development. Maybe it would sound different inside the Cathedral.

From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Fri, 5 Oct 2001 00:43:51 EDT   Hi List:   POE's are a wonderful start in getting youthful players interested in playing the organ. The thought occurred to me, what happens after the week is over? Do we follow up with these children, to make sure they have found a good teacher? Some of these students are not local, but may have traveled 100 miles or more to participate in the week long activities. A few may have come from adjoining states. Do we have a list of teachers for their area to recommend? Do we communicate with these children after the week is up? Take an interest in their progress by E-mail?   To illustrate my train of thought, a student comes to Irvine, CA from Tempe, AZ or Paso Robles, CA for the POE. It's now possible for organ teachers in the AGO to be listed by area with phone and E-mail information online. I think it's safe to say most families who reach this level have a PC and are online. I'm just dropping a hint! If the list were = by city and state, it would facilitate getting teacher and student together.   A thought,   Ron Severin
