More importantly: this is a grim reminder to ALL of us the importance of having not only our insurance in effect, but having our furnaces checked PRIOR to the beginning of EVERY heating season by a COMPETENT HVAC Contractor. Things happen to mechanical equipment when it sits unused for months, especially if there's condensate leakage from Central Air Conditioners that can cause furnace Heat Exchangers or burners to rust out.   > she needs our prayers right now.   So noted and so offered.   Faithfully,   G.A.   -- Richard Schneider, PRES/CEO SCHNEIDER PIPE ORGANS, Inc.

(back) Subject: Diane Bish house fire From: "Randolph Runyon" <runyonr@muohio.edu> Date: Fri, 01 Nov 2002 10:02:04 -0400   I copied this from=20 http://www.hoosiertimes.com/stories/2002/11/01/news.021101_HT_A1_JLR01869.s= t o?c=3Ds         Harp competition founder, host of 'Joy of Music' los= e their home to blaze   By Katy Murphy, Herald-Times Staff Writer   It was after midnight Thursday morning when Susann McDonald and Diane Bish watched their house burn down from lawn chairs across the street. The two women looked on with neighbors and friends as firefighters unleashed fountains of water onto the burning roof at 2208 Covenanter Drive, and fretted about what was left inside.   But McDonald's expression lifted as she saw several firefighters emerge from the smoke with a few of her prized possessions. Her harps.   McDonald is a distinguished professor of harp at Indiana University's musi= c school, and the founder and artistic director for the USA International Har= p Competition.   =20 Firefighters managed to salvage two of her precious gold harps and several smaller Irish harps, said Charles Webb, the former dean of IU's music school.   But Bish, who is a well-known concert and recording organist who hosts the international television series "The Joy of Music," lost her instrument to the fire.   Webb said that fire destroyed Bish's signature electronic organ, as well as a grand piano and smaller harps of McDonald's.   "It's particularly sad because ... (Susann) has an accumulation of a lifetime of music memorabilia and gifts from all over the world and most of these things are destroyed," he said.   Bloomington Fire Department fire investigator Scott Smith leaned his spade against the remains of the sprawling ranch house Thursday afternoon.   He said he believes the fire started in the furnace closet and spread through the attic before it set off the downstairs smoke detector.   And although the first fire truck arrived around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, just two minutes after the alarm sounded, much of the damage had already been done, Bloomington Fire Chief Jeff Barlow said.   The flames charred the wood-paneled rooms to a potent ebony crisp. Even th= e back-yard patio furniture was rendered skeletal. But neither McDonald nor Bish were injured in the fire. The smoke detector awoke them in time for them to escape, Smith said.   Their white teacup poodle, Tutti, also survived the ordeal. "They're very fortunate that they weren't injured in any way," said Webb. Two rooms seem to be salvageable, Smith said. And he said their three cars were relatively unharmed, except for telltale cinders on top.   Gwyn Richards, the current dean of the IU School of Music, said that he came to the house that night as soon as he heard of the fire. Webb and other IU music school faculty came as well.   "It's very emotional, I tell you. It's hard to see someone you love go through something like that," Richards said.   McDonald and Bish, who couldn't be reached for comment, stayed with neighbors Wednesday and will live in a hotel until their home =8B which used to be a gathering place for music students =8B is rebuilt.   "I think, in time, she'll probably decide to put another house there," Webb said. "And I hope she does."   "Reporter Katy Murphy can be reached at 331-4370, or by e-mail at kmurphy@heraldt.com.           Randy Runyon Music Director Zion Lutheran Church Hamilton, Ohio runyonr@muohio.edu

Something like this, at a more beginning level, happened to me in my early days as a budding organist, playing hymns for the Sunday School opening service as a 7th grader. The instrument was one of those odd Kimball electro-reed instruments (never seen one before or since), and my attempts to use the unified mutation (2-2/3) once led the pastor to stop the hymn and "try again," but eventually we were asked to sing unaccompanied because apparently "John needed to practice more." It was a sound they had never heard before, and in retrospect it was indeed cacaphonic. I have hated derived mutations since - even if derived from pipes, as in so many old Kilgen/Wicks/whatever instruments of old.   As an admirer of the Valpo instrument, I appreciate the degree of gravity it had before the rebuild - much different from most of the later Bunjes designs - and that "firm foundation" has now been strengthened.   Speaking of appropriate/inappropriate sounds for British repertoire... = With the recent discovery of Choral Evensong via the 'net from BBC Radio 3, my appreciation for a more fundamental sound in organs is growing by the = week.

(back) Subject: Re: Quintaton From: "Kenneth Potter" <swell_shades@yahoo.com> Date: Fri, 1 Nov 2002 19:34:12 -0800 (PST)   Quintatons, as they appear on American organs such as Moller and Skinner instruments have never seemed to me to be very effective. They often appear as bland 16' stops that never seems to have enough weight to undergird a manual division in the manner that a Principal 16 or even a Bourdon would. I have long felt that they belong at 8' as in the wonderful old organs of the Netherlands and Germany where they provide a terrifically pungent sound that has simply never been acquired as a taste in America. Old examples heard there are hauntingly and unforgettably beautiful. I don't know why they never caught on over here. Over there, they seem as indispensable as the harmonic flutes of France. I think that in order to make them blend, we watered them down to the point that they were just uninteresting.   Just a thought,   Ken   =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D Kenneth Potter, Organist/Director of Music St. Peter's Episcopal Church, Westchester Square, Bronx, NY 845/358-2528 <swell_shades@yahoo.com>, Austin Op. 2097 at: = http://www.nycago.org/Organs/html/StPetersEpBronx.html =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D   __________________________________________________ Do you Yahoo!?

The two women looked on with neighbors and friends as firefighters unleashed fountains of water onto the burning roof at 2208 Covenanter Drive, and fretted about what was left inside.   But McDonald's expression lifted as she saw several firefighters emerge from the smoke with a few of her prized possessions. Her harps.   McDonald is a distinguished professor of harp at Indiana University's = music school, and the founder and artistic director for the USA International = Harp Competition.     Firefighters managed to salvage two of her precious gold harps and several smaller Irish harps, said Charles Webb, the former dean of IU's music school.   But Bish, who is a well-known concert and recording organist who hosts the international television series "The Joy of Music," lost her instrument to the fire.   Webb said that fire destroyed Bish's signature electronic organ, as well as a grand piano and smaller harps of = McDonald's.   "It's particularly sad because ... (Susann) has an accumulation of a lifetime of music memorabilia and gifts from all over = the world and most of these things are destroyed," he said.   Bloomington Fire Department fire investigator Scott Smith leaned his spade against the remains of the sprawling ranch house Thursday afternoon.   He said he believes the fire started in the furnace closet and spread through the attic before it set off the downstairs smoke detector.   And although the first fire truck arrived around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, just two minutes after the alarm sounded, much of = the damage had already been done, Bloomington Fire Chief Jeff Barlow said.   The flames charred the wood-paneled rooms to a potent ebony crisp. Even = the back-yard patio furniture was rendered skeletal. But neither McDonald nor Bish were injured in the fire. The smoke detector awoke them in time for them to escape, Smith said.   Their white teacup poodle, Tutti, also survived the ordeal. "They're very fortunate that they weren't injured in any way," said Webb. Two rooms seem to be salvageable, Smith said. And he said their three cars were relatively unharmed, except for telltale cinders on top.   Gwyn Richards, the current dean of the IU School of Music, said that he came to the house that night as soon as he heard of = the fire. Webb and other IU music school faculty came as well.   "It's very emotional, I tell you. It's hard to see someone you love go through something like that," Richards said.   McDonald and Bish, who couldn't be reached for comment, stayed with neighbors Wednesday and will live in a hotel until their home < which used to be a gathering place for music students < is rebuilt.   "I think, in time, she'll probably decide to put another house there," Webb said. "And I hope she does."   "Reporter Katy Murphy can be reached at 331-4370, or by e-mail at kmurphy@heraldt.com.           Randy Runyon Music Director Zion Lutheran Church Hamilton, Ohio runyonr@muohio.edu       "Pipe Up and Be Heard!"
