But I'm on a new computer and a new (temporary!!!!!) mail proram, and I had no way to finding you on short notice!   So--what organ WAS that? Doesn't sound like the Episcopal one you described several years ago. Wrong end of the building. What's the mystery here?????   I HOPED I'd hear from you about this.   Alan hates Yahoo (type is much too tiny, and I can't figure out how to make it bige4r)   __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?

I find that I don't have the agility that I once had in getting into tight organ chambers..the main =   chamber at Mundelein can be pretty vexing as it is small and extremely tight..to the point of having to take some pipes out to get into it...(another reason is there is much more of me to get into the chamber than when I was in my twenties)     jch

The excellent speech by Peter Sykes, delivered at the last AIO convention is featured in the current Volume 16 #4. Called "What We Do Matters", it could also be called "What can an organist say to an organbuilder?", which is the first sentence in his second paragraph. It is certainly worth the price of subscription if you are not currently a subscriber.

I've been a piper for 47 years now and still play. The pipes are probably nothing like as loud as the local Tuba Mirabilis, so you can't object to = the volume. And the tone is spectacularly good - the drones and chanter are usually made of African blackwood or ebony and really can resonate wonderfully richly. And it can't be the music - the piobaireachd, the classical music of the pipes, consists of a wonderful ground and set of complex variations up to 45 minutes long, though usually about 15 - = 20mins. And the pipes are the best instrument in the world to march to - brass and military bands are like a collection of washing machines in comparison. = And the tuning is NOT equal temperament, hooray hooray. So what exactly is = your problem? And mind you, I find nothing paradoxical about loving both the classical pipe organ and the bagpipes - both are wind instruments of great antiquity after all. So, watch it, mate! :=3D() Ross P.S.
