(back) Subject: RE: Pipe Organ Quotations From: "Emmons, Paul" <pemmons@wcupa.edu> Date: Wed, 9 Oct 2002 14:56:22 -0400   Thanks to the home page of our university library, I came across a site t= hat amalgamates at least some quotes from three books or projects. These apparently include the Columbia Dictionary of Quotations, which is the mo= st ambitious. Many readers were assigned to authors to read their complete works and submit (on a form that could be e-mailed) anything epigrammatic. On online database was contemplated, and I am glad to see that something has come of it. Perhaps the project is still ongoing. Yours truly read some plays and other matter by Noel Coward for them some years back. (Rather barren stuff he proved to be if you're looking for single sentenc= es that have any interest out of context. Now Wilde or Chesterton would be quite another matter...). =20   The site is:   http://www.bartleby.com/quotations/   I was led to it from another one worth bookmarking for every admirer of t= he English language, and which lists a couple other promising sites for quotations:   http://andromeda.rutgers.edu/~jlynch/Lit/   Of sixty-some responses to the query "organ" I have culled the most relevant, plus a couple others that might refer elliptically to the music= al instrument or might not, but struck my fancy in any case. Multiple meani= ngs and plays on words have always, of course, been among the glories of masterful writing.   -------------------------------------------------------------------------= ---

(back) Subject: Re: Mixture Question From: "jon bertschinger" <jonberts@magiccablepc.com> Date: Wed, 09 Oct 2002 21:04:08 -0500     Just ask what the mixture compositions are. Depending upon the age of the instrument, they may be 2' mixtures or 1 1/3', or even 1'. It's not unusual for builders to name things what ever they want, without particular concern for the composition of the mixture.   good luck.   jon bertschinger
