Herman Hesse's essay "Old Music" is especially moving. Enjoy!   http://www.ondamar.demon.co.uk   =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D     __________________________________________________ Do you Yahoo!?

I switched mine on the other day and it = belched forth smoke, made awful noises and sparks flew out of the power = supply; destroying the Motherboard and probably most of her offspring = and dependents!   Repairs are being instigated, but I shall install one of those on-board = powder fire extinguishers like they have on racing cars.=20   I thought this was bad until I saw a documentary about Yellowstone = National Park. Apparently, if the volcano goes up, it will wipe out the = whole of America and most of life on Earth as we know it.....I = immediately counted my blessings and felt better.   Having been silenced by this dreadful event, I thought I would lump a = few things together, so that when I check my e-mails in about a weeks = time, I shall be able to read the responses.   Firstly, has anyone come across that strange phenomenon whereby an = otherwise unknown organist plays a piece so wonderfully, that it just = grabs your attention? My cousin (the one who fell down the manhole in = Ashton-under-Lyne) is a gifted musician and well qualified, but he is = not a "name" especially. However, he was a participant in the making of a local organ Audio Tape, = on which he plays (among others things) the Prelude & Fugue in C minor = of Mendelssohn. I have played this performance "to death" since buying a = copy of the tape........it is just a perfect combination of technique, = eloquent phrasing, magical registration and musicianship. In a = word......"World Class" (OK....that's 2 words!)   Just a note about Rodgers taking over Stinkens. Rodgers are very local = to me and have a long tradition of pipemaking (They incoporated Alfred = Palmer's). They have become very well respected within the trade and = their acquisition of the Stinkens (b.v) name will, I feel sure, uphold = two excellent names in pipemaking. Ironically, the organ I play has = pipes made by Rodgers AND by Stinkens!!   Lastly, a fine story.   "Tradition has it" (It may be a shaggy dog story) that when Sir David = Wilcocks was at King's College, Cambridge, there was a very rare = occasion when the choir sang an anthem rather badly. Apparently, it was = normal practice for the good and ever polite Knight of the Realm to = conduct the choir and, having finished conducting, to then close the = music copy on the music stand,bow graciously, and then visibly mouth the = words, "Thank you gentlemen" at the choir.   With the anthem falling apart at the musical seams, Sir David did not = alter his demeanour or his normal practice at the conclusion of the = singing. He closed the copy, he bowed to the altar, he thanked the = choir, and then......very slowly, tore the music copy in half before = departing for the organ loft!!   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK

(back) Subject: Re: Mixture Question From: <TubaMagna@aol.com> Date: Fri, 11 Oct 2002 20:31:21 EDT   ALL mixtures are different in composition, with little consistency in their design. Each mixture, like each pipe organ, is designed for its particular room and the instrument it complements. The person selling the organ should know the compositions and be able = to send them to you. Three-rank mixtures are harmonically unbalanced, which = is why they are less common than four-rank mixtures. There is no "set" composition for ANY mixture of a particular name, whereas there ARE set compositions for compound stops such as cornets and sesquialteras. Ask the seller for the compositions.   Sebastian M. Gluck New York City
