I believe it was on a web site. I'll seek it out and get back to you.

However, in September, if you are able to get there,Felix will be playing at The Methurn Memorial Musical Hall, Friday, Saptember 13, 2002 at 8:00 PM.   Admission is $10.00. Program is posted at www.mmmh.org   Cheers, Mack       "COLASACCO, ROBERT" wrote: > > Does anyone know if Felix will be in NYC soon (like within the summer > months) to concert?

I would imagine that is not the case in this new installation?   Particularly in reeds?   Mind you, I'm not complaining about Schantz, as I play one and love it.   Neil by the Bay (soon to be by the Bell) (liberty that is)   --part1_f6.1d450dec.2a4bb895_boundary Content-Type: text/html; charset=3D"US-ASCII" Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit   <HTML><FONT FACE=3Darial,helvetica><FONT SIZE=3D3 FAMILY=3D"SANSSERIF" = FACE=3D"Arial" LANG=3D"0">Schantz has a history of too many "similar" = sounds in one instrument.&nbsp; I would imagine that is not the case in = this new installation?<BR> <BR> Particularly in reeds?<BR> <BR> Mind you, I'm not complaining about Schantz, as I play one and love = it.<BR> <BR> Neil by the Bay<BR> (soon to be by the Bell) (liberty that is)</FONT></HTML>   --part1_f6.1d450dec.2a4bb895_boundary--  
(back) Subject: Looking for a book that answers stupid questions . . . From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@direcway.com> Date: Wed, 26 Jun 2002 19:59:40 -0500   Sitting here after a very hard week and a half of court and personnel problems from hell (one co-worker has chased off my secretary, and I am struggling to control my homicidal ideations and to unclench my fists), basking in the glow that Felix Hell is acquitting himself so wonderfully as attested to by members of the lists, and dying for word from Malcolm about the OHS convention events which I am so resentfully missing, I was wondering if anyone can point me to a book which explains in fairly layman terms some of the concepts that have been discussed lately, such as:   -- when would most mutations or harmonics "break back", and generally would the general rule differ with the various types and families of stops; is there a general rule or protocol, or is it a matter of individual organbuilder preference;   -- what are the various harmonics and timbres that one looks for or recognizes in the more common stops or families of stops, i.e., what distinguishes them;   -- what are the various things that a tuner/technician looks for in tuning particular notes, particularly relating to the various ways of tuning an instrument, i.e., how Valotti, meantone, etc., differ from equal temperament;   -- a discussion of the families and types of pipes and how they are fashioned.   I have some friends who have recently discovered the organ, and I would like to have a resource that I could give as a gift to them, and it would certainly help me a great deal as well. Does such an animal exist? Some glossy photos and centerfolds probably wouldn't hurt.   Regards to all,   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com

The videographer will be in the rear gallery. We will need = an auxiliary microphone (or microphones) down in the nave for the recording.   Also, information regarding use of 2 monaural mikes or one stereo mike.   Thank you in advance.   Regards, Audrey Jacobsen
