(back) Subject: Re: Organ: Midland Park Christian Reformed Church, NJ From: "Jan S. Van Der Stad" <dorian@nac.net> Date: Wed, 17 Oct 2001 22:23:54 -0400   Good evening, list members   We seem to have a bit of a mystery as to the organ at the Midland Park, NJ CRC.   Neil Brown wrote: It is by a Dutch Firm. I want to say Pels and Fritzen. Does that sound right? And it was installed in the very late 80s. Beautiful little instrument. It is too small to support congregational singing, but what a joy to hear.   Sand Lawn wrote: The organ on my list for Midland Park Christian Reformed Church is Tellers, #1062 ... 1968 .. 2 manuals ....   Well, now we seem to have quite a mystery on the hands of those interested. I wouldn't think that a Christian Reformed church in their right mind would buy a second organ, within 20 years of the first, but you never know.   I had thought that list member Brian Tricoli (who lives near Midland Park NJ) would be able to provide more info.- or isn't Brian Tricoli a list member??? ; nobody at the church has provided any more info. as of yet.   One thing I can say is that the church is square shaped, with the pulpit and stage area in the Northeast ?? corner, and the pews and balcony are oriented a bit like an ampitheatre.   Whatever the organ is, yes, it is a beautiful little instrument, though it is too small to lead congregational singing. Of course, the wall-to-wall carpeting and the theatre seats in the balcony don't help either. When I heard the organ used last evening it seemed as if the organist "pulled out all the stops and couplers" and played as many notes and octaves as his hands would permit (grins) in order to lead congregational singing, when the church was half full.   Seems like I will have to attempt a personal visit to the church in order to play the organ next time I am in the area.   Jan S. Van Der Stad

(back) Subject: Keys and Pedals From: "Tim Bovard" <tmbovard@arkansas.net> Date: Wed, 17 Oct 2001 22:16:13 -0500   Hello, everyone!   I have a 2 manual set of keyboards available if anyone might want them -- = I need the space they are occupying. They come from a 1960 Wicks console, and are in fair-good condition (sorta dusty and needing a couple leather nuts, but otherwise intact). Wicks keying contacts are attached, but cables have been cut. Plastic keytops and light oak keycheeks -- no pistons in keyslips.   Also available is the pedalboard from the same console -- again sorta dirty, but intact. Light oak frame. Underkey contacts attached (and I think the cable is still there). Sw/Cresc shoes if 'ya want em.   I'll entertain ANY offer for these (including "I'll haul 'em away for you...") -- I just need the space, and don't really wanna throw them in = the dumpster (as *somebody* should be able to use the damn things...!) Shipping these items *might* be a *remote possibility*, but pickup would certainly be best. Items located in Little Rock, AR.   Thanks!   Tim Bovard <tmbovard@earthlink.net> <tmbovard@arkansas.net>

(back) Subject: Correction: Midland Park Christian Reformed Church From: <TubaMagna@aol.com> Date: Wed, 17 Oct 2001 23:36:12 EDT   Pels & Van Leeuwen b.v. Orgelbouw Dorpsstrat 25-27 {or P.O. Box 15} Waardenburg, NL   By the middle 1970s, they had built well over eight hundred organs, most = of small scope, and mechanical action. I believe their efforts Stateside, especially with alternative playing actions, did not fair well.   SMG  
(back) Subject: Re: Correction: Midland Park Christian Reformed Church From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Wed, 17 Oct 2001 23:48:59 EDT   Sebastian is right:   The Pels Van Leeuwen organs had a tendency to split their chests, and become useless. They didn't take into consideration differences in climate and humidity. They were a big seller in the 60's and 70's. Midland Park must have one of the remaining playable organs from this firm. As I remember their scaling was wrong too. One size fit all!   Ron Severin
