My argument is purely pragmatic--very few folks on the Committe are gonna listen to "It sounds like crap and doesn't play the same," cuz they can't tell the difference. But this particular line of reasoning always yields an accoustic piano:   On *insert date* the power went out, rendering *toaster/misplaced cinema instrument/Casavant Feres (I wish) inoperable.   On the accoustic piano, I finished the service.   As for space? You wanna save space, get one of the uprights Yamaha sells to conservatories as practice instruments--they're tall and not especially pretty, but they're built like tanks and sound and play like everything Yamaha makes--not perfect, but pretty good   Unfortunatly with pianos, unlike organs, it really is a matter of the bigger the better. Anything smaller than a "full upright" starts to sound pretty lame. And the action becomes more complicated, complicating things.

Yes the action is =   flakier than a "real" piano but most of us play the organ and are used to that touch.   gary hostetler In a message dated 2/23/02 6:44:22 PM, cdkrug@worldnet.att.net writes:   << Diane S. brings up an interesting subject -- digital pianos.

But then I guess I must mention the organ at Church Street U. Methodist, Second Presbyterian, First Presbyterian, and at First Baptist, all really good instruments.   I have heard the one at Westminster, and frankly, it didn't impress me. I heard David Higgs give a recital there, and I guess a reason that it didn't impress me was that I was extremely sick that night.... 102 temp and so. I went anyway because it was a chance to hear a great organist that I might not get to hear again. It is a nice little instrument though, medium size.... 20 or so ranks if I remember correctly.   Josh Edwards     -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org] On Behalf Of Wayne Grauel Sent: Saturday, February 23, 2002 7:12 PM To: PipeChat Subject: Tenn.

To me and "my personal opinion", these are the > typical examples of mediocrity in factory organ building.   Now I will challenge this as I saw and played some brand new, very large Schantz organs and a Schoenstein in Houston last summer at the AGO = regional convention. The instruments built by Schantz do not even resemble the Schantz organs I =   played that were built in the 1960s, 70s and 80s when I was growing up in Memphis, TN. The one that most notably sticks out in my mind is the new Schantz at Moody Memorial United Methodist Church on Galveston Island, TX. = VERY fine in every respect. The Schoenstein is in the chapel of a small Roman Catholic college in Houston, the name of which escapes me at the moment. But, as to be expected from Schoenstein and Jack Bethards, it is nothing less than perfect in every way. I also heard organs by Visser = Roland and Sipe which were also exemplary. So I do not think it fair to say that =   builders that build large quantities of instruments in large factories = should automatically be lumped into the category of "mediocre."     > If you really want to expand your horizons in organ building then you > should check out the Richard, Fowkes & Co. organ at Westminster Pres. in > Knoxville.   If one wants to see nothing but baroque-style trackers that probably can't =   play the complete repertoire or EFFECTIVELY and EXPRESSIVELY accompany a choir singing repertoire other than Bach chorales, then this is the site = for you. (Sorry, I can't help it this time.) What about the marvelous Aeolian-Skinner at Church Street United Methodist in Knoxville? Or the = large romantic Casavant around the corner at First Presbyterian? Or, dare I mention- the Mighty WurliTzer at the Tennessee Theatre? Seems to be more = in Knoxville than just trackers folks (thank God!) And these instruments = also have expression, broader scales, substantial pedal and celestes!   My statements are not meant to impugn the work of Richard, Fowkes and Co. = at all, on fact I heard the First Lutheran organ in Boston two summers ago = and it was quite beautiful indeed. However, as a church musician and concert organist I need to see and hear something besides trackers. With the exception of a traditional Lutheran church, such as First in Boston, I = really have a problem with organists and professors who hoist instruments onto congregations that will probably be there for the next 100+ years that are = A) purely academic in nature thereby satisfying the consultant's overweening = and academic ego and B) cannot effectively and completely lead worship in an appropriate manner. This includes repertoire for the organ voluntaries, choral accompaniment, hymn playing (with some variance in the verses) and improvisation. Can we REALLY do all of this solidly on a tracker in some funky, antique temperament with no expression, no pistons and flexible = wind that makes the organ sound like it blew a gusset???   Lastly- don't knock Allen either- they have been and are doing some rather =   spectacular things these days.   Scott Foppiano (donning asbestos cassock and cotta...)   --part1_83.17439a54.29a99b9b_boundary Content-Type: text/html; charset=3D"US-ASCII" Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit   <HTML><FONT FACE=3Darial,helvetica><FONT SIZE=3D2>In a message dated = 2/23/02 7:13:39 PM Eastern Standard Time, wayne@eminent-usa.com = writes:<BR> <BR> &nbsp;&nbsp; <BLOCKQUOTE TYPE=3DCITE style=3D"BORDER-LEFT: #0000ff 2px = solid; MARGIN-LEFT: 5px; MARGIN-RIGHT: 0px; PADDING-LEFT: 5px">Oh my... what a shame, typical of people who live somewhere and aren't<BR> even aware of what's in their own back yards!</FONT><FONT = COLOR=3D"#000000" style=3D"BACKGROUND-COLOR: #ffffff" SIZE=3D2 = FAMILY=3D"SANSSERIF" FACE=3D"Arial" LANG=3D"0"></BLOCKQUOTE><BR> <BR> </FONT><FONT COLOR=3D"#000000" style=3D"BACKGROUND-COLOR: #ffffff" = SIZE=3D2 FAMILY=3D"SANSSERIF" FACE=3D"Arial" LANG=3D"0">This is very true, = but not just in the eastern Tennessee area.<BR> </FONT><FONT COLOR=3D"#000000" style=3D"BACKGROUND-COLOR: #ffffff" = SIZE=3D2 FAMILY=3D"SANSSERIF" FACE=3D"Arial" LANG=3D"0"><BR> <BR> </FONT><FONT COLOR=3D"#000000" style=3D"BACKGROUND-COLOR: #ffffff" = SIZE=3D2 FAMILY=3D"SANSSERIF" FACE=3D"Arial" LANG=3D"0"><BLOCKQUOTE = TYPE=3DCITE style=3D"BORDER-LEFT: #0000ff 2px solid; MARGIN-LEFT: 5px; = MARGIN-RIGHT: 0px; PADDING-LEFT: 5px">You mention Schantz, Reuter, oh wow!

Seems to be more in Knoxville than just trackers folks (thank God!) And these instruments also have expression, broader scales, substantial pedal and celestes! My reply: Thank you so much for your comments about Knoxville's organs... One correction though, did you know that the Aeolian-Skinner at Church Street had been rebuilt and added to by Randall Dyer in Jefferson City? They added a new solid-state 4 manual console added a few ranks and replaced some in the main organ, but also added about 10 or so ranks to an Antiphonal? It also has it's own console from the rear balcony of the church! I haven't gotten a chance to hear it since they completed it but I'm sure it's still as glorious as it was. Also, there is a fine example of a Schantz at Cedar Springs Presbyterian. 4m/85 ranks.... with I think, the first SILVER en-chemade that Schantz ever did. They have 8 or so ranks in an antiphonal. It's great to hear that organ, and especially great to have the opportunity to play that magnificent organ. Our Schantz rep in this area is commited to doing fine installations, which he has done nothing but fine installations.
