(back) Subject: Re: Richard Purvis From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Tue, 16 Oct 2001 02:42:02 EDT   Hi Gary:   Richard Purvis was a Curtis Graduate, who worked under Alexander Mc Curdy. From the early 40's to the early 70's was organist of Grace Episcopal Cathedral, in San Francisco. He retired then and the reins were handed off to John Fenstermaker, who is also now retired from Grace SF. He was a talented Theatre organist, and brought to the then 98 rank Aeolian/Skinner a talent for orchestral color which fitted this particular incarnation of the instrument to a "T". There is a movement afoot to return this marvelous organ back to it's roots, American Classic, with orchestral subroots.   Richard had a hand in recognizing a young choir boy, who became a highly prized professional organist in his own right, Ted Alan Worth. = Virgil Fox also befriended Ted and taught him a great deal. All these men had a great admiration for the playing style of Charles Courboin, who was also a great friend and confidant of Fermin Swinnen, who were the two greatest organists of their time. Both of Belguin birth. Charles was the Felix Hell of his generation. At age 16, he could hold an audience spell bound, = packing in 12,000 people per recital in Antwerp Cathedral. To understand Richard and all the rest, one must see the cross pollination begun by Charles Courboin. One must understand another Belguin, also Cesar Franck! They were at the root of the romantic, symphonic genre, of organ music. They simply orchestrated organ music, And Leopold Stowkowski also an organist became a great conductor and transcribed Bach's music from organ to orchestra. If you immerse yourself in all these people, then you can have an appreciation for Richard and the rest.   Regards,   Ron Severin
