(back) Subject: A Lancashire Organ Crawl (Part 3) LONG From: <cmys13085@blueyonder.co.uk> Date: Tue, 27 Aug 2002 11:47:05 +0100   THE STRANGE CASE OF THE DISAPPEARING ORGANIST       It could never be claimed that Wigan is the jewel in Lancashire's = tarnished crown, but for organists (and especially our little group) it = has one interesting organ. Old George had arranged things for us as we = stepped aboard the bus from Yorkshire and rushed up to the front seats = on the top deck; a small fight breaking out as we jockeyed for favourite = seat. As the bus moaned and groaned its way across the wind-swept = Pennines, the rain lashed down. Sheep cowered behind stone walls and = humans ran for cover. In fact, with so much wool on the backs of each = species, the two were almost indistinguishable.   It was still raining as we approached the centre of Wigan, but = undaunted, the Maestro led the way from the bus to the optimistacally = named "Rising Sun".   "Have we got my music case?" The Maestro enquired.   "Yes I have", I replied meekly.   Horace had left his walking-stick on the bus, so by the time he arrived = to drink his ale, the rest of us were about to leave. Horace just had = time to down half the glass as we swept out of the "Rising Sun" and set = out to find the Parish Church where Old George would be meeting us.   "I hope you are not drinking men?" The Vicar asked as we piled into the = church.   Dr Dickie gave him a savage look, "Of course not Vicar, unless we happen = to be thirsty".   Horace limped into church last; tripping slightly as his bad leg caught = the edge of the top step.   "I hope you are not intoxicated", the Vicar said to Horace.   The Maestro glared at the Vicar, "Certainly not! The poor man is = crippled from a dreadful accident".   The Vicar was profuse in his apologies, noticing the walking stick and = his dishevelled appearance. Horace gave a belch of wind and then wiped = the remaining foam from his moustache.   George was delighted to see us; taking us immediately to the organ loft = where a fine 3-manual instrument awaited us, bearing the name Wm.Hill & = Son., Norman & Beard Ltd. Actually, the instrument contains much older = pipework from the 18th century. Our trial of the instrument included the = playing of Bach, Walond, Stanley, Trodoffski and finally, Horace's = version of "Handel's Largo".   Horace always played Handel's Largo wherever he went, but it has to be = said that, after the first opening chord of G major, the outcome of the = remainder was at best unpredictable and, at worst, a complete cacophony. As Horace approached the console, the Maestro asked, "What stops shall I = leave in Horace?"   Horace climbed awkwardly aboard the instrument and, with a satisfied = grin, noticed that everything but the Tremulants were drawn. At this = moment, we made a hasty exit from the organ loft and "yomped" to the = West Door.......yomping being the military term for half running and = half walking.=20 All hell broke loose from the organ as Horace began his rendition, = resulting in the surprisingly rapid appearance of old George among us = outside the church.   Things seemed to fall silent, and it was now obvious that, whatever it = was that Horace had in mind, had now finished with a glorious but = distinctly unmemorable tone-cluster. We re-entered the church just as = Horace emerged from the organ loft stairs.   "Did it sound alright?" Horace asked pitifully.   My cousin replied from the heart, "As good a performance as I have ever = heard you play!"   "What did you think?" Horace addressed the Maestro.   Without blinking, the Maestro Trodoffski replied, "I always say Horace, = that when you were appointed to St.Matthew's, a better man could not be = found".   Horace seemed well pleased by the critical acclaim heaped upon him as he = limped behind us towards the next port of call, a public house by the = name of "The Omnibus". Old George and the Maestro were in their element = as they watched buses moving to and fro the Bus Station; each commenting = upon the engines, the body manufacture or the latest heating system = employed for the benefit of the inmates. This was accompanied by much = quaffing of draught real-ale; the conversation becoming decidedly = boisterous.   "Hey! Look at that!" The Maestro pointed out of the window. There stood = a beligerent looking cat with one eye and a missing ear which hissed at = anything, or anyone which came within striking range. For some strange = reason, our company found this to be the funniest thing since old Enid = had suggested that she "liked to get her hands on a big organ like = yours" after a recital.   It was soon time to go.....two hours had passed quickly and, in any = event, no-one could properly focus on the hands of the little clock = behind the bar. George hurried us along as we stumbled from "the = Omnibus" and made our way, by bus, to Ashton-under-Lyne.     The streets of Ashton-under-Lyne are wide and elegant in places; = especially in the area leading towards the celebrated Albion = Congregational Church (URC) with its magnificent 4-manual T C Lewis = organ in original condition. The width of the streets is made all the more remarkable by the planting = of gardens in the central area once occupied by tram-lines. It was as we = proceeded, somewhat unsteadily, towards the church, that a startled cry = came from the Maestro; causing me to drop his music-case.   "Where's David?" He cried questioningly.   Eyes observed the wide, empty street, but no matter which way we turned = to look, there was absolutely no trace of David. We waited several = minutes but still, there was no sign of him.   David, it seemed, had disappeared!   (To be concluded......)   Colin Mitchell=20 UK

POLITICITIANS   The lack of scruples present in these phoneys carries over to organ issues. "Whatthehell, a speaker can duplicate pipes nowadays." Who listens to organ music anyway?   I would alter, with due respect your term John; the 'politicians'.   The more proper term for these suppressed humans is: "The Arrogoncia"   The raised eyebrows displayed by these supercilious self-absorbed frauds = gives them away..   Their sheer Arrogance   Their 'cover' is blown. Just watch them misrepresent anything from organ technology to War Plans.   How about some stories about 'Organ Men'? Persons who defrauded churces and theatres. Trashing pipe organs (stealing)   Good Topic?   Stan

How about the arrogance of a bank insisting it needed more parking space (while surrounded by community lots @ 25 c/hour), that a theatre - the last one in town - dating to 1869 be demolished?   Fortunately, concerned citizens were able to save the place which is now THE performing arts center, containing its original 1928 Wurlitzer, and the engine that drives the downtown revitalization.   The bank is still doing well - now gobbled up by mergers.   Bardavon 1869 opera house in Poughkeepie, NY   www.bardavon.org
