They will pick one of the three included "new" liturgies. The new hymnal will also contain the "Page 15" service from TLH, and the Page 158 service from Lutheran Worship (of course those won't mean anything unless you're familiar with the LCMS hymnals). Many new hymns will be included as well. We haven't tested any of the new materials yet, but I hope to do so when our adult choir can go over them first. It looks to be a great hymnal that far surpasses the musical capabilities of Lutheran Worship.   Paul Bethel LCMS, Round Lake, MN     Mike Swaldo wrote: > > Hi, > > Does anyone here know what teh current status is in the development of = the > new LCMS hymnal?

The Makin (British) company was bought by Johannus some years ago. Makin organs use Johannus technology, but their pipe samples come from English Cathedral organs as opposed to Continental Europe and or American samples. The Opus 30 also has 3 manuals and 38 stops. You can not go wrong with a Makin/Johannus, assuming everything works and = it has not been abused. If it needs repair, Johannus stocks all parts for their older instruments = as far back as 30 years. Contact your Johannus dealer if it needs repairs.   Gary     ----- Original Message ----- From: "pat and ian" <patian@senet.com.au> To: "Pipechat" <pipechat@pipechat.org> Sent: Saturday, June 08, 2002 4:54 PM Subject: Makin Regal 338/Johannus Opus 30     > Does anyone have information.

I have the last one recorded in 1998, but am very interested to hear the organ when it was in better repair and tune. "Bach on the Biggest" and "Atlantic City Renaissance" are the other 2 recordings, and I assume they are long out of print since the last one was made 25 years ago. If anyone has or knows where I can acquire either or both of these earlier recordings, I would be most interested to hear from you.   Thanks much Mike

If you try to do anything with a heat gun, you're going to really mess something up big time. You'll be amazed how much better the console will look with new drawknobs and nameplates. It'll be expensive, but well worth it.   D.
