Speller" <jlspeller@mindspring.com> Date: Wed, 11 Sep 2002 19:50:57 -0500   I serviced the organ for the OHS convention, but as I recall owing to an oversight the OHS plaque though awarded never got presented. In hindsight this may not have been too bad a thing, since the 1988 Casavant rebuild, though in its way sensible, left the instrument not the way it used to be. The reeds were revoiced, the layout of the instrument completely changed = and the action converted from ventil to pitman chests.   John Speller   ----- Original Message ----- From: <Hell-Concerts@t-online.de> To: "PipeChat" <pipechat@pipechat.org> Sent: Wednesday, September 11, 2002 6:46 AM Subject: Re: Catonsville MD     > This is correct, but the organ had been refurbished > completely 1988.

People today want to see things not just hear about it. The best comparison I can think of is, how many more people watch and = listen to television today than just listen to radio only. Just a year ago today people were glued to their television sets watching the NYC attacks, listening to a radio announcer that day would have been vastly inferior. Why do you think MTV is so popular with the younger crowd ? It is not for the music so much as it is for the visual. I have VHS tapes of organ concerts (made privately), the sound is pumped through an audio system simultaneously with the TV. The overall effect is definitely superior to just a standard CD.   Gary   ----- Original Message ----- From: "Arie Vandenberg" <ArieV@classicorgan.com> To: "PipeChat" <pipechat@pipechat.org> Sent: Wednesday, September 11, 2002 5:18 PM Subject: Re: Felix Hell - Luebeck CD     > At 04:24 PM 9/11/2002 -0500, you wrote: > >Dear list, > > > >Has anyone from our ranks of professional organists (or nearly as good as) > >ever given any thought about recording on DVD instead of CD. > >I know it doesn't apply to everyone, but the vast majority of the "regular" > >public does not care for organ music because in today's society we are > >conditioned to view simultaneously with listening. > >Samples are of course: Television, Live rock concerts, Live orchestra, any > >other single/solo instrument. > >DVD will also give much better sound than CD (DAC conversion at 24 bits vs > >16 bits with CD) and we get the visual as well.
