On to Riverside, St. Pat's and others I don't remember now. And to the present day, I still go regularly to NYC to "The Cathedral" and other churches and have always had positive experiences with the organists there. I have only warm memories od the courtesy extended to me and my family while visiting different churches.   Cheers, Mack

In fact, my experience with organists has been pretty straight forward.....the truly professional organists, the accomplished organists, are very kind, intelligent and humble. It's only the "wannabe professionals" that I've = run into that were obnoxious, rude, suffocating and arrogant.   Marika   mack02445 wrote:   > When I first entered a New York City church, which was St. John the > Divine, 1956 as a 16 year old .....snipped for bandwidth......   -- Jungian Type: INTJ      
(back) Subject: chicago-new york-"Pedelsons" and Patelsons From: "Jonathan B. Hall" <jonathan@jonathanbhall.com> Date: Mon, 4 Nov 2002 06:16:33 -0800 (PST)   Hi, List--   I am going to resist jumping in on the Chicago-New York debate, but I doubt anyone on the list is more qualified to render an opinion, considering that I worked professionally in Chicago for 13 years, and am a native New Yorker and worked here a total of about eight years (1978-1984, and 2000-2002). Add my three wonderful years in Indianapolis and you have 24--the 25th anniversary of my first Mass, as it were, comes up next September 22. I have served on the board of both Chicago and New York AGO chapters, edited both their newsletter, and so on and so on...   Obviously, I have many feelings about that question!   However, the reason the original poster--the one who found New Yorkers "rude"--didn't find "Pedelson's" is because the store is PATELSON'S. Or Joseph Patelson Music House, at 160 West 56th street, right behind Carnegie Hall. Take a "yellow" train--N, R, Q, W--to 57th street, look towards Carnegie Hall and take it from there. (You'll either emerge across the street from Carnegie or right under its side wall. It would be rather difficult to miss it!)   Their phone number is 212-582-5840.   Hope this helps. I have always found the staff there polite and helpful to me, and I have been going there since about 1979.   Real New Yorkers--I mean people from New York, not tawdry New Jersey girls here for a weekend on Daddy's gold card--are absolutely wonderful, helpful, and polite, almost to a fault.   You know how else to tell the difference? Real New Yorkers know what an Egg Cream is, that's how. Anyone else grew up in Xenia.   :)   Best   Jon

Hall" <jonathan@jonathanbhall.com> Date: Mon, 4 Nov 2002 06:27:29 -0800 (PST)   Moi encore--   There are FABULOUS sources for old organ music in Chicago...I'm a little surprised the original poster needs to use Patelson's at all!   --jbh  
(back) Subject: Re: Sign on an organ in a chapel From: <TubaMagna@aol.com> Date: Mon, 4 Nov 2002 09:55:33 EST   As the pipe organ continues to be threatened, we must acknowledge the instrument's primary enemy, which is ignorance. In all endeavors, the prerequisite for success is education. Our goals =   are achieved neither through condescension, nor through anger, but through =   patient education. Even amongst our own, misinformation is rampant, and stated with authority. The sign in question may be a legacy of the real organ that the = pipeless instrument displaced, but even then, its scare tactics and "hand-off" = caveats probably contributed to the demise of the original pipe organ. Get involved, gently and calmly, and guide the misguided. SMG  
(back) Subject: Re: Defending NYC Organists From: <TubaMagna@aol.com> Date: Mon, 4 Nov 2002 10:13:43 EST   As with any city, it depends upon who you actually contact. Gross, sweeping generalizations, such as the ones unfairly made about pipechat members, can be very damaging. As has been discussed many times on these chat lists, showing up unannounced and being insistent about a musician spending unplanned time = with you can shift the person's mood enough to make you interpret their ACTIONS = as their CHARACTER. Organists may, at times, be very territorial about their instruments. Organbuilders are usually very open and willing to make appointments for tours and demonstrations. Call in advance -- you can usually tell from the =   tenor of the conversation whether or not the person is congenial. Chances = are that they value their time and planning as much as you value your own. After 42 years on the island of Manhattan, and especially the last horrible 14 months, I can tell you that we are friendlier than ever = (except for the nasty ukelele players, they're a bunch of creeps...)

Indeed my fellow New Yorkers will certainly remember some of this. Jons remark about "Egg Creams" unlocked a cascade of ancient memories for me (thanks Jon). My neighborhood in Manhattan (Washington Heights) Sported in addition to it's fair share of Austins, Mollers, Skinners & Casavants, a corner candy store every few blocks or so. my haunt was located on 183rd Street & Amsterdam. Anyway, They made the most fantastic Egg Creams ever. Do any of you remember "the Test" for choosing a spalding for stickball? Speaking of which, Home & second bases were manhole covers, and first & third were usually Chevys. Wow! I've got to go now, I'm off to NYC for an Egg Cream!!!!!!!!   John

(back) Subject: Defending Organists From: "morton belcher" <littlebayus@yahoo.com> Date: Mon, 4 Nov 2002 08:30:15 -0800 (PST)   Greetings!   May I add another story of a very gracious individual?     A number of years ago I was in the Music Library Reading Room of the Library of Congress, and this somewhat elderly lady was at the desk requesting a book... somehow we got talking and I found out she was the late Jean Slater Edson, AAGO, who had written a compendium/dictionary of organ works based on hymn tunes!   She was such an elegant, charming, dignified down-to-earth woman (she taught at Mary Washington College, Fredericksburg, Va.), who was so happy to know that an individual a good deal younger than her had discovered and appreciated her compendium....   And then there is the autographed little booklet describing the Mormon Tabernacle Organ that Alexander Schreiner was kind enough to send me...   Yes, there are wonderful individuals in the organ/choirmaster world..   I think we can all profit from a phrase the late Ann Landers used in an article when she gave an individual a piece of advice: "Accent the positive; eliminate the negative; and don't mess with Mr. Inbetween." Ms. Landers meant we should treasure our friends who are so nice to us... and we should realize that in spite of the "rotten eggs" we might meet, there are many wonderful people in the world.   And, by the way, although I was born in Brooklyn, New York, I didn't live there long, although I have had relatives in NY for a number of years... I claim Virginia as my home state....   Best wishes to all...   Morton Belcher fellow list member....         __________________________________________________ Do you Yahoo!?

I don't know the proportions, nor even if there is any standard recipe, but = it begins usually with milk and chocolate syrup made quite dark, about two inches worth. Added to this, that great NY staple, Seltzer poured to the top. Stir, and drink. I am not sure if it sounds lovely in the telling, = but it really can be delicious.   Cheers,   Malcolm   ----- Original Message ----- From: "V.
