Perth, Western Australia has a wet winter - 35 inches of rain a year falling in about 4 months ,and a hot dry summer - temperatures up to 105 or so at times with low humidity.   English organs imported in the late 19th Century often had problems with warped and cracked chests. Also the expansion and contraction of wooden trackers made a need for frequent adjustment. The result was that many of these organs were electrified many years ago. Organs imported from the Eastern States of Australia (mainly Dodd and Roberts) sometimes had the same problem but not to the same extent.   Our churches are not heated to any marked degree in the winter as the mercury does not drop below 40F very often, and they are not air conditioned in the summer, when they could well be, for the comfort of their patrons!!! The range of temperatures and humidity then is wide.   THe same does not apply in the south where I live. We tune the eight organs in the city and surrounds twice a year, and they stay in tune throughout the intervening six months except for a touch up of the reeds. However as only two have reeds, that doesn't pose any problem   Bob Elms.   " > > The Pels Van Leeuwen organs had a tendency to split their chests, > > and become useless.

Do you mean ONE = SINGLE INDIVIDUAL PARTICULAR VOLUMN? I mean like I have three one of which is = the Orgelb=FCchlein, are you saying that particular volumn would be = $54.95!!!!!!!! And as you say the paper is crap. the volumns I have also cost me about $5.50 in 1321, I remember, Dante died that year and Boccaccio was born. = But they are all oxidized and I had to use acid-free tape to repair and = place on the edges of each page so I can use them. As for the prices, it's not = the French this time (hard as that is to believe) so much as the import = taxes. I actually go to Italy to buy my Italian books because the import and = shipping is so expensive that a cheap air fare and good but inexpensive hotel at = the right time of year is less expensive, and I'm not kidding! Anyway, pheeeeeeeeeeeeeeew. Robert=20 PS and yes, you're right, as soon as I purchase the new $1000 copy, = I'll find the old one with the corrections that my professor provided me = with. Seems the original publication had two typos and he knew that because = he was a close friend of Langlais.       > Dupre ed. of Bach. The price an astounding $54.95 I don't own them all, but the one's I do have cost $5.50. The printing and binding is identical. They're are not that durable either. Now I can see hard bound leather at that price and paper, which is what this is, about $20.00. The pages aren't even sewn just glued. Talk about a rip off, or am I just dating myself? :)   >Do the French think we are fabulously wealthy? We're just hard working stiffs. We certainly aren't wealthy doing church work. :)   Regards,   Ron Severin

(back) Subject: Re: UK prices vs NL prices for music(Bourneman) From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Fri, 19 Oct 2001 11:02:46 EDT   Hi Robert:   In the Netherlands at the time I went a US $1.00 bought 3.20 guilders NL. I walked into a music shop there in Vaight called Hammers. I had priced C. H. Trevor's editions of old English Organ Music for Manuals. A =A31.00 was a $1.32 US. The UK music shop in Liverpool wanted 7.50=A3 a piece. I bought all six volumes in the NL for $1.69 US each. Now these books were printed by Oxford University press in London W-1 Each volume would have cost me $9.90 US in the country they were printed in(1984) All six would have cost me $59.40 and the sales tax. I got those same books in the NL for a total of $10.14. I never could figure how it would be more expensive to buy in the native country vs Europe, and the NL in particular. Can someone explain that? Puzzled still.   Regards,   Ron Severin   PS I wonder if Bournman ed. are cheaper in the NL or Italy.

I told him the european sheet music would be much higher had I ordered it from here. = So as for sheet music, yes it costs more, at least in Italy, to buy european = sheet music. The huge music shop I went to in Amsterdam right next door to the Concertgebouw, required you to know what you want and ask for a = specific piece. All the music was behind the counter in wonderful drawers and = shelfs to the ceiling and you had to ask the clerks to get you what you want. = I like to browse myself because I don't know what I want I don't know = what's there. I like running across things and composers I'm not familiar = with.

(back) Subject: Silbermann in Frankenstein(!) on Krebs CD From: "William T. Van Pelt" <bill@organsociety.org> Date: Fri, 19 Oct 2001 14:15:16 -0400   I just can't resist observing that this CD has arrived just in time for Halloween! Yes, there is really an organ in the beautiful little village = of Frankenstein, Germany! There's even a picture of the village in this CD, and the organ is no less than a Gottfried Silbermann. It was rarely, if ever, recorded on CD before because of its condition. But, it was = restored in 1998, even reinstituting the original low pitch of A=3D415.   The CD is Volume 5 in Felix Friedrich series devoted to the works of = Johnann Ludwig Krebs and it includes a piece for two keyboard instruments, the Concerto in a minor, with the second instrument being a copy of a = Gottfried Silbermann harpsichord. For organ alone there are a Prelude and Fugue as well as several Chorale Preludes and other works. The full repertoire appears at http://www.ohscatalog.org   Also new is Volume 6 in the Krebs series, recorded on the gorgeous Silbermann at St. Petri Church in Freiberg.   Bill

(back) Subject: NYC Area broadcast w/ organ on WQXR 96.3 FM From: "Jan S. Van Der Stad" <dorian@nac.net> Date: Fri, 19 Oct 2001 18:59:39 -0400   Good Evening, List   Yesterday afternoon on WQXR I partially heard an announcement regarding a live broadcast featuring organ music on Saturday evening at 8PM. I thought to myself: "I'll believe it when I hear it."   In consulting the playlists on WQXR's website, the Mozart Requiem will be performed for the World Trade Center Memorial Concert at the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola with Notre Dame organist Olivier Latry, The Dessoff Choirs, The French Consulate, and French Embassy. It will be broadcast live tomorrow evening at 8 PM on WQXR 96.3 FM.   You can also listen via RealPlayer at www.wqxr.com   Thought this would be of interest to some list members in the area who would like to listen in the comfort of their own home, or who cannot make it into NYC for other reasons.   Jan S. Van Der Stad
