(back) Subject: Prairie Churches of ND From: "orgel koenigen" <adamkgny@yahoo.com> Date: Sun, 7 Jul 2002 08:51:00 -0700 (PDT)   In this morning's Sunday NY Times there is a wonderful, yet sad, story about the aging and abandoned little white wooden Lutheran churches of the prairies and the efforts to preserve them as icons of the pioneer past. Its a lengthy article filled with stories of lutefisk dinners, and names such as Ringsaker -along the banks of the Red River, Osterdalen, and Hitterdal; and stories of blizzards, and great grandfathers named Elof Olsen.   The story on the NY Times website is at: http://www.nytimes.com/2002/07/07/national/07CHUR.html     (It is necessary to register to get to the story, but its free.)   Enjoy, -Adam (this is my first post here; by way of introduction: I'm a church webmaster, rather than an organist, hence my enthusiasm for arcana :-)   __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?

Nothing will appear on the screen until you have released all keys.   Paul

It's not as convenient to use as a standard keyboard, = but it can be done. The "numeric keypad" is imbedded in the right side of the regular keyboard, and is accessed by selecting the NUMLOCK key. Of = course, that makes it impossible to simultaneously use the ordinary characters of those keys. The best solution is to go to a place like CompUSA and buy a cheap keyboard (generally less than $15.00) to connect to your laptop. = I've never used the keyboard built into my laptop. It's a pain, and I make too many mistakes with it. A separate, standard keyboard is definitely the = way to go. A real mouse, as opposed to the pointing devices all laptops have built into them, is also a good thing to have. Much easier to use.     ----- Original Message ----- From: <MFoxy9795@aol.com> To: <pipechat@pipechat.org> Sent: Sunday, July 07, 2002 5:39 PM Subject: Re: Extension question     > to get these ASCII characters, what does one do on a laptop, which does not have the extra numeric keypad on the right? > Merry > > "Pipe Up and Be Heard!" > PipeChat: A discussion List for pipe/digital organs & related topics > HOMEPAGE : http://www.pipechat.org > List: mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org > Administration: mailto:admin@pipechat.org > Subscribe/Unsubscribe: mailto:requests@pipechat.org > >    
(back) Subject: The POE (sorta long) From: "Paul Soulek" <soulek@frontiernet.net> Date: Sun, 07 Jul 2002 20:06:19 -0500   I was fortunate to be able to attend a POE (Pipe Organ Encounter) this summer, so I thought I would share my experiences with the lists.   I attended the Sioux Trails' AGO's POE from June 23-28. It was a new experience for me, having no "formal" organ lessons. I really enjoyed my time there. The event was hosted at Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN. The campus contains 19 pipe organs, 16 of them are practice organs. Some were better than others...there was a nice Hendrickson tracker in one of the rooms, along with two Schantzes, Schlickers, and Reuters, a Moller, and many Wicks. There were 32 participants in the week. We were able to hear a recital by Ji-Yoen Choi (spelling?) on Wednesday evening, which was very great! She can REALLY play. Every day during the week topped out at over 90=B0F, so the air-conditioned music buildings were very appreciated. Unfortunately the dorms were not air-conditioned, but we lived.   The Twin Cities chapter of the AGO graciously donated a $30 music voucher, which could be used to purchase books in the college bookstore, or from the Sioux Trails Chapter's own supply. I ended up with three very nice books out of the week.   The problem that I find now, is that there are so many other things going on that I can't find time to practice. Our new pastor was ordained and installed this afternoon, and I was directing the adult choir plus getting the music ready, and the morning service. We "finished" the organ now, so it looks nicer. Our church isn't air-conditioned (yet), so the temperature at the 2 PM ordination/installation service started out at a humid 86=B0F, and by the end of the service it was 92=B0F in the sanctuary. (I know this because we placed a digital thermometer near the organ, so we know if the electronics are "callibrated" with the pipes) I was glad to come home to air-conditioning. The pipes haven't been voiced yet, but the organ-tech knows that I'm waiting. We will be adding a wooden flute rank to the organ this summer, going down to 16' pitch. So that's the rest of my summer.   That's my loooooooong report.... Paul  
(back) Subject: POAD From: "Ross & Lynda Wards" <TheShieling@xtra.co.nz> Date: Mon, 8 Jul 2002 14:38:36 +1200   It's probably time to remind List members, if they ever knew it, that = there was a writer for the English mag "Musical Opinion" about 40 years ago who invented the word POAD.   The letters stand for - "Pulsator Organorum Agitans Digitorum" according to this fellow, meaning, = he said, "organist's twitching fingers". To be a poad, therefore, is to be someone who compulsively tries out pipe organs and goes on organ crawls, talking frantically (of course) all the while about leathered lips, = bevelled languids, French vs English shallots, etc.etc. I lived at home till I was = 26 and my mother called me a poad for some years. A poad uses terms like Open Diapason I, 7" scale, 6" pressure, saying it provides "a gorgeous flood of rich unison tone", for example. And he never, ever, explains what musical use it might be: that is beneath contempt. If there a 16ft Ophicleide of immense proportions on the Pedal, a stop that utterly routs, devastates = and obliterates all the manuals coupled together, that is sheer mystic bliss = to a poad, and he has no interest whatever in discussing why the stop is = there or what it can be used for, if anything at all.   To a poad, the chase and the discussion are everything. A recital, or any musical use, merely gets in the way.   I confess, I am a poad, at least sometimes.   Anyone else read of that term, or use it, or remember it?   Ross

(back) Subject: Sources for Leslie speaker info? From: <cdkrug@worldnet.att.net> Date: Sun, 7 Jul 2002 22:22:03 -0400   List:   I've a pair of Leslie speakers. A 147 that's partially disassembled, but which has the original amp intact. It's been modified for club dating.   The other is "Made specially for the Conn organ Company" and was the speaker for my first "real" job. It was mine for the hauling away when they got their "new" Allen TC-3 (which I thought was a joy to play after the monstrosity it replaced).   Anyway, does anyone have info on where to get parts and things for Leslie speakers? The 147 is missing a few odds and ends, and the other's amplifier got toasted (which has a lot to do with it's being replaced.)   Thanx     Charles
