I know quite a few choral canons, but have never run across this one. Enlighten us, please, with date, publisher, etc.   You say he has written organ music, also. Is it published? His name doesn't appear in any of the several directories of composers for the organ.   More details, please.   Agnes Armstrong     Listers, My apologies for the lack of information.

(back) Subject: Ahlborn Archive From: "Paul Soulek" <soulek@frontiernet.net> Date: Sat, 11 May 2002 20:19:27 -0500   Today I saw an Ahlborn Archive module advertised on eBay. The auction was stopped by the seller (Gerald Cluff), so it is no longer available. That got me wondering how about these modules. Does anyone have any experience with the Ahlborn Archive series modules? Would they be a good addition to my SCPOP system? What is the quality of the samples? Also, what can I expect to pay for one of these? And if the Archive series is not of good quality, is there another brand you would recommend?   Is that enough questions? <grin>   Thank you! Paul

Swank" <prswank@surfbest.net> Date: Sat, 11 May 2002 21:53:38 -0400   Paul.   I have heard three of the four modules currently available, and the sound quality was very good. So good, in fact, that I have bought a Romantic module (to be delivered on Tuesday for my birthday on Wednesday).   I have always been surprised that the quality in the modules does not seem =   to be in the Ahlborn organs themselves, at least the smaller and less costly models. The ones I have seen were poorly constructed compared to the Rodgers and Allen consoles.   I would heartily recommend the Ahlborn modules to add to an existing pipe organ or digital organ where there is not room or money for other expansion. All of the voices can be used in any quantity or layering you = wish.   I have an Allen MDS Expander II module which is also of very good quality both in workmanship and in tone. The selecting of registrations is not as =   easy in the Allen Expander II, unless you have it attached to a more = recent Allen with it's Console Control feature. You may only use four voices at any one time with this module.   I have a Church Organ System (Viscount) EXL-200 Expander module as well. The sounds contained in it are pretty good, but a little on the screechy side (North German???). All of the voices are available singly = or in any combinations.   Paul R.
