(back) Subject: Floods throughout Europe From: <cmys13085@blueyonder.co.uk> Date: Mon, 2 Sep 2002 04:33:19 +0100   Hello,   I wonder of anyone has any further news of the damage wrought by floods = in Europe and possible damage to places of worship, concert halls and = organs?   Things are still dangerously "knife edge" in the Czech republic, Poland = is having a bad time and now Switzerland is deluged.   In the UK, we have had extremely heavy rain but not a great deal of = flooding. However, the church at which I play had a lot of ground-water = come into church as the water table rose dramatically and the drainage = couldn't cope with it. Fortunately, what bit of water covered the floor = area has not affected the organ very much; the problem being discovered = early and the water removed quickly.=20   Nevertheless, the smell in church is really quite unpleasant, and the = stonework is still oozing damp. It is only a hint of the problems being = faced elsewhere in Europe.   I think it impossible to believe that damage has not been done to some = fairly important buildings/organs, but apart from the one instrument = mentioned in Germany in a recent posting, I have not heard of anything = really bad. After all, not every church in Europe has a West Gallery and = an elevated organ!   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK

From: "Stanley Lowkis" <nstarfil@attbi.com> Date: Mon, 02 Sep 2002 00:06:41 -0400   Those old Thorens were "built like A Battleship" Produced much pleaseanable organ music over the years. It didn't have a carbon stem.   A roller bearing balanced in oil.   A Joe Grado Gunstock Walnut Arm..   A machine of beauty.   ...kinda like a pipe organ that skilled pipe organ builders build = everyday.

The zero = gravity was a 'plus'.   The phonograph records never wore out. The Biggs and Fox records are as good as the the day that they were born! The George Wright's ain't bad either.   Seriously, a cousin hearing that old Thorens TD 121 playing an organ LP commented that it sounded as good as a CD.   ...And no - he wasn't deaf at the time.   Stan
