(back) Subject: Re: Value of pipe organ$? From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Fri, 7 Sep 2001 11:34:45 EDT   Dear Andrew:   No matter which action is used EP, Pitman, ESlider, EM, Tracker The average price per rank is determined, by how many full length 16' are in the organ or 32'. Reuter recently quoted 12 low pipes of a wood 32' bombard at $80,000 w/o chests. I would estimate these to average out to $22,000 to $25,000 per rank. If the bass is a 16' Bourdon w/two pressures $18,000 per rank. The average cost per rank then is determined also with the greater or lesser use of good reeds too. Reeds are expensive! How much after installation factory voicing? That adds to the built in average. My point is that any given builder can have an average variation in price from $18,000 to $25,000 or more depending upon the contents required. It's an estimate!   Ron Severin   PS at todays prices a three manual 50 rank organ nearly $1,000,000 a four or five manual 100 ranks nearly $2,000,000 all new. These are averaging out at $20,000 per rank. I'm sure there are variations to this but that's a ballpark guesstimate! Costs are slightly lower, on rebuilds using some old or revoiced pipe work in the mix.

To use a TIF file with Sibelius one must first convert it to a Windows .bmp graphic which you can load into PhotoScore, the music scanning program which comes with Sibelius. If you don't already have a good graphics program for doing simple retouching and format convrting, I recommend Irfanview, which is free and which contains no .dll's and writes absolutely nothing in the Windows registry.   Robert Ehrhardt   Hugh Drogemuller wrote:   > > Do any of you know of a utility that will convert a .tiff file into > .niff format.

(back) Subject: setting a value on a pipe organ From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Fri, 07 Sep 2001 14:41:23 -0700   We bought an 11-rank Moller of 1966 last January for our new church, which is presently under construction. Disassembled and stored, it is insured for $300K. That's on the high side for replacement value (I really should stop praying for a fire at the storage place) (grin), but there is at least one American builder who's presently charging $30K per rank.   I would say $18K-$25K is closer to the average.   As friend Severin mentions, if the organ includes more full-length 16's and/or ANY 32's, you probably should take the higher figure.   Cheers,   Bud-by-the-Beach    
(back) Subject: Re: Paris Churches From: "westbach" <westbach@t-online.de> Date: Sat, 8 Sep 2001 00:57:10 +0200   Dear Mr. Guy,   I would have to ask you a question first - are you primarily interested in =   hearing music (esp. organ) or attending a religious service?   If you have never been to Notre Dame for a high Mass, then by all means I = would put that as first choice. I feel that the service (religious component) = is very beautiful, but if you do not understand French, then you might not get = much out of it - but the setting and sound are unforgetable.   St. Sulpice has fantastic organ music - one of C-C's greatest instruments = - and the service is nice, but again in French naturally. There is the Anglican =   church, but I consider that the same as being in church in the USA. So it = all depends on what you are after. You might be able to hear N. Hakim = (Trinite), his wife( N.D.des Champs), Alain (St. Germain-des-Pres or Laye, I am not sure which), etc. There are so many well known organists there.   Services at ND (where the G.O. is played):10, 11:30, 12:30; there may be = an organ "audition" at 5:15pm.   Have a great time in my favorite big city in Europe!   Sam Westbrook
