You know me better than that! I wasn't so much taking "pot shots" at Bill or his situation specifically. It's just that I'm just patently offended when people use the church as their dumping-grounds, rather than hauling it to the dump, like the SHOULD have done in the first place! The sarcasm wasn't against the H-XXX, but against the PRACTICE!   OK?   Now, would you like to help me find a good/bad/indifferent home for a Hammond M-111? If we can get a few bucks for it for the trouble, well and good, but, if we can just get rid of it without having to pay to haul it away, then that's good too.   Faithfully,   G.A. -- Richard Schneider, PRES/CEO SCHNEIDER PIPE ORGANS, Inc.

(back) Subject: THE LAST PICTURE SHOW - THE GRANADA WALTHAMSTOW - A REVIEW From: "John Foss" <harfo32@hotmail.com> Date: Sun, 29 Dec 2002 21:02:56 +0000   THE LAST PICTURE SHOW The lights dimmed, the curtains opened and the spots shone on Simon = Gledhill and a wonderful old lady, Mme. Christie. O.K. Mentioning a lady's age is = not considered very polite, but I am sure she won't mind on this occasion, for =   her 3 manual console controlling 12 ranks of pipes have graced the stage = of the Granada Cinema in Walthamstow for 72 years, she was about to be taken for an energetic run through the park. She was determined not to depart = this life without protest, and Simon had to cope with a couple of moans and groans from a diapason and a clarinet as he was about to play Billy = Mayerl's "Ace of Clubs", but these were trumped by master engineer John Leeming up =   in the chambers After this she behaved like the aristocratic princess she is. Simon Gledhill, a virtuoso player up there in the pantheon of the gods =   with Quentin Maclean, Gerald Shaw and the other immortals, put her through =   her paces in a well balanced programme flawlessly executed. He combines musical taste with discreet showmanship, and his handling of the organ is impeccable. Now, pistons had been invented by the time Hill, Norman and Beard started building their "Christie" designer label theatre organs, but =   they are not abundant and the Granada, Walthamstow, the last Christie = organ in situ in a working cinema in the U.K., has about 8 for the accompaniment =   and solo manuals, but none for the top manual. However this was no = hindrance to Simon's effortless console control, much of his imaginative = registration being done by hand. He knows exactly which sounds he wants, Mme Christie = has them at his disposal and he finds the right ones every time. The sound is rich, varied and amazingly full of individual character. I have searched = the web for a list of the ranks, but in vain. dare I suggest that the = promoters - the C.O.S. I think - include a few details of organ and organist in = their programme notes. I have absolutely no objection to parting with 3 pounds = for a programme, and there were some interesting photos of this magnificent cinema in its heyday, one of which included the console. Cecil Bernstein chose the famous Russian stage designer, Theodore Komisarjevsky, to design =   the interior, which he did in an unusual Moorish/Spanish style. It has character and deserves its Grade 2 listed building status, though it could =   do with a bit of TLC, but a brief specification of the organ and a few = notes about the recitalist would be appreciated. Simon Gledhill started his well thought out programme "I Feel a Song = Coming On" which then materialised as "With a Song in My Heart" by Rodgers and Hart. After a Few Foolish Things we visited the Vagabond King by Friml, = and then heard Two Aces from the 1930's master of the piano, Billy Mayerl. It was at this point that we had the only glitch in the show when a couple of =   pipes decided to stage a sound in - but when you realise that the old lady =   sits there alone and neglected for most of the year (though the C.O.S. has =   done a great job in bringing her back to health and keeping her in trim) = she must be forgiven a small protest! We ended the first half with an amusing acronym G et happy R emember me? A in't misbehavin' N earness of you A nything goes D ancing in the dark A ll over the place   The second half, during which Mme Christie behaved herself with perfect manners, started with a tribute to two great masters of the Theatre Organ, =   Gerald Shaw and Bobbie Pagan, with the march "After the Movies" and = "Canyon Caballero". Another acronym on C H R I S T I E , The Man That Got Away, A Suite of Suites and a Goodbye Granada medley brought the afternoon to a close with The Party's Over and Auld Lang Syne. Simon's registration was fascinating - he used all the resources of the organ from "I can only just =   hear that" to "That's an earful!". All the ranks were featured, both on their own and in chorus, with and without trems., producing some gorgeous sounds! Creamy tibias, astringent Krummets, stirring Trumpets and Horns. All delighted the ear and the imagination. I mustn't forget to mention the lighting operators. No jelly, but an ever changing kaleidoscope of colour bathed the stage. Particularly effective = was a moment when we had an almost black surround with the console picked out = in rich dark green. The occasion had attracted virtually the entire theatre organ world. To my =   right were the crew of Dovedale Garage and Pipes of the Peaks, David Thorp =   and (I think) Stephen Foulkes and Christian Cartwright, to my left David from Wolverhampton, who claims to be Simon Gledhill's number 1 fan, and he =   has a signed programme to prove it! Behind me was Bill Potts from Southampton Guildhall, David Lowe was there, John Leeming introduced the occasion and worked hard keeping the old lady running and there were supporters and fans from Scotland, Wales, and in my case, Greece! Yes, to quote My fair lady "Everyone who should be here is here!" Sorry I can't mention everyone - it would take too long! This was the first theatre organ recital I have been to for about 40 = years. The setting was perfect - a large 30's cinema with a resonant acoustic, = the recitalist (who played the entire programme without a note of music in = front of him) and programme beyond criticism. There can't have been many dry = eyes in the house as Auld Lang Syne brought this memorable occasion to an end.       www.johnfoss.gr         _________________________________________________________________ Add photos to your e-mail with MSN 8.

(back) Subject: 4-4/7' Septieme: use and mythology From: <TubaMagna@aol.com> Date: Sun, 29 Dec 2002 17:49:51 EST   One of the Pedal stops on our III/35 (prepped for 46) pipe organ for Beth-El Chapel at Temple Emanu-El is a 32' Harmonics. Since the bottom 32 notes of the 8' Swell Viola Pomposa stand on a unit chest so they can be borrowed into the Pedal, we were able to use that rank at 4-4/7' for the critical low end of the pedalboard. Since the rank is extended down as a wonderful, bowing 16' Viola Magna, it is also included as one of the two 10-2/3' pitches in this compound voice. Although the derived mutations are not in tune, and such stops are a compromise, they can be very effective if all of the components are = properly balanced and placed to advantage. Under full organ with the Pedal 16' Ophicleide (8" scale at CCC), the 4-4/7' gives the beating effect of = drawing a 32' Contrabassoon, and is quite dramatic if used sparingly. Without the 4-4/7', the stop does its job, but lacks the excitement = and life of what is sometimes called "the Violon harmonic." HOWEVER, there seems to be a persistent myth that these stops are prevalent in France. They are rare there, too, and one would be = hard-pressed to find them. Even in the most known builders, the 2-2/7' stops are = rarely original to the organ, if found at all. I believe that there are more post-Romantic Septiemes than authentic ones inserted in French pipe = organs.   Sebastian M. Gluck New York City

It is rather heady not having all that responsibility, although I am sorry to hear you have left.   I was cleaning and organizing all day today, and found the nastygram from the priest's wife that initiated my leavetaking from St. A's. In reading my letter to her and to the vestry, I was rather impressed with myself, my restraint and well-spokenness. I found this year's bulletins and bound them today also, and again was impressed with the level of musicianship and the quality of the bulletin I was able to maintain during my time there. I have been informed that both are sadly lacking now, and the Christmas Eve service this year was moved from 8:00 to 6:00, with only 28 in attendance. We used to pack 'em in and give them a 30-minute concert before the processional, with all sorts of special music in between.   I sometimes shudder at the haphazard and piddly Sunday music programs listed by organists, both in my town and elsewhere, and am so thankful for the time God gave me at the bench, even though an amateur, to give them at tiny St. A's a taste of what church and church musicianship were all about - we had big music at a small church. In fact, now that I've left I am so blessed that I cannot think of anything to gripe about.   Tom and all, have a marvelous new year.   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com (already planning a trip to hear Felix in February - it's been TOO long!)

I have no doubt of the accuracy of what you're saying. The same thing happens to pastors, too, as you might suspect. How very common it IS that congregations get just exactly what they have coming to them. Not because of acrimony, but because they ASK = for it.   Alan
