The dictionary I have here - oxford - defines it as "not easily excited". I think this describes =   the Abbey organ to a T - I can't see how "civil" can be comfortably = applied to an organ! I suppose in the sense of "polite" it could - but organs need = a range of manners from the retiring to the assertive. Incidentally, I don't =   really go along with your definition of civilisation either! Maybe this is = a cultural thing UK vs US. Civilisation comes from the Greek politismos - people living in a city. but for this it would be best to refer to the "Spectator" - a civilised British weekly publication!

With = Will's expert research (and wit) he explained each selection and the registration used compared to what will be used in Batesville. It was a great evening = of organ music and -- for those who travel to Batesville for the recital nest Friday, you will be in for a real treat!   This recital marked the first of three organ recitals this weekend in the Syracuse area. Glenn Kime played a superb program last night to mark his tenth anniversary as organist at May Memorial Unitarian Society - on a two manual Holtkamp.   Then this afternoon at 4 there was a fine recital by Gregory Keefe on the three manual Casavant/Kerner & Merchant instrument at Erwin 1st United Methodist Church. Tomorrow, Gregory will be giving a program for school children -- introducing them to the pipe organ.   All in all, a great weekend with three recitals on three different instruments. Thanks, Will, Glenn and Gregory.   Cheers,   Bonnie Beth   Bonnie Beth Derby Organist/Director of Music, St. James Roman Catholic Church Syracuse, New York (33-rank Kerner & Merchant tracker organ) Producer/Announcer: "Orgelwerke" & "Choral Traditions", WCNY-FM, Syracuse; WUNY-FM, Utica; WJNY-FM, Watertown & live on the web at www.wcny.org
