Please don't get upset about the POST or overload ebay looking for the Boston organ treasures.   I apologize if I've upset you.   The organs in Boston are getting better. Immaculate Conception is one of the finest organs that I've ever heard.   You can listen to it here with other treasures.   http://store.yahoo.com/ohscatalog/hisorofbos.html   Stan   Eric McKirdy wrote: > > On 4/1/03 10:23 PM, Stanley Lowkis said something about: > > > An outrage! > > All pipe organs have been designated 'fire hazards' by the = Legislature. > > Can you provide a link to a news article about this? > > "Pipe Up and Be Heard!" > PipeChat: A discussion List for pipe/digital organs & related topics > HOMEPAGE : http://www.pipechat.org > List: mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org > Administration: mailto:admin@pipechat.org > Subscribe/Unsubscribe: mailto:requests@pipechat.org

(cross-posted) From: "Kenneth Evans" <kevans1@rochester.rr.com> Date: Wed, 2 Apr 2003 11:49:13 -0500   I am pleased to learn that there is another organ event taking place in upstate New York. My wife and I have had the pleasure of meeting Searle Wright following theater organ events on Binghamton's Forum Center Morton. I am going to quote from part of a message received from Paul Stapel (with his permission) which provides information about this coming Sunday's = event.   "Our good and revered friend M. Searle Wright is intending to extemporize = on themes of Stainer's The Crucifixion as an extended prelude to that work being performed by the First Congregational Church of Binghamton's Choir this Sunday April 6 at 3 PM, Randall Messing conducting. The church is = near downtown Binghamton, on Main corner of Front Streets, Binghamton, NY   Searle's memory banks are still doing quite well on the grand music for which he is justly well known.   Join us in honoring Searle's presence with us. And if you haven't had the chance to talk with him directly, feel free to call him on his own = telephone at 607 723 2418. He is usually doing lunch between 11:45 and 1:30 and = dinner between 5 and 6:30 but you can often catch him up until 10 pm and he would be glad to hear from you."   Regards, Ken Evans

Just dont let that get in the wrong hands and = ears, as some crazy fire regulator or politition may not think of it as so far fetched . Something to that point these days could actually be taken up = on. Scary thought Seems today the laws are reversing themselves Here in Canada if you are caught with less then 30 grams of Pot, and = go to court. they cant charge you. In fact cases that are going to court like that are dropping out like flies. Now that the parker decision has passed, it has set a scary precident Where is this world coming to or going Danielwh

At the least, you might get busted.   At the worst, you might burn down a church.   I don't know where the World is going. Nor does anyone.   Let's Pray for Ourselves.   Stan     danielwh wrote: > > You know, nothing surprises me anymore, An idea like that may not be as = far > fetched as we may think.

He asked me why I hadn't =   responded - pressure of work is the answer, however I woke up at 5 this morning and unable to get back to sleep, penned the following - with apologies to WS Gilbert (or was it Arthur Sullivan?) Two poets far greater =   than I - Lord Byron and John Betjeman - have written of Harrow Churchyard, =   but here is a third offering:   Lying one day in the Churchyard I was weary and ill at ease The organ sound came faintly Fanned by the summer's breeze And then to my amazement A voice rang loud and clear It was the voice of Byron Ringing down from yesteryear   The sounds of T C Lewis Inspired his noble heart The diapason's thunder Gave voice to his fine art The Tubas and the Trumpets From organs far and wide Joined in the Clarion Chorus To praise the Ophicleide   And so on his great journey From School to Greece's shore The Great and Swell's rich mixture Contain the organ's roar From Elm to Missolonghi From Harrow's Peachey Stone Lord Byron's epic voyage Was launched by Diaphone!     www.johnfoss.gr         _________________________________________________________________ STOP MORE SPAM with the new MSN 8 and get 2 months FREE* http://join.msn.com/?page=3Dfeatures/junkmail    
(back) Subject: Pipedreams in CT (and everywhere) ALERT! From: "AGO-OnLine" <agonline01@hotmail.com> Date: Thu, 3 Apr 2003 00:34:08 -0500   Dear Organists:   The Pipedreams radio program is in grave danger of being cancelled on Connecticut Public Radio (CPR) due to lack of contributions. Like some other places in the U.S., our local AGO Chapter has taken the responsibility to underwrite the program, as CPR does not believe = broadcast of Pipedreams to be in their best interest.   Should Pipedreams be cancelled on CPR, the entire state will be without this unparalleled, inspiring, educational, superlative programming.   A mailing was recently sent to the entire state AGO membership in this regard. This was followed-up by an email to all members with current email addresses.   Pipedreams host Michael Barone has been very generous with his time in helping me develop some resources that AGO members can use to spread the word about Pipedreams, raise funds, and increase listenership. These include a poster, and church bulletin notes. I have posted these on the AGOnLine archive to help others who may be facing a similar challenge with a Pipedreams broadcast station, and also in case there are any "angels" outside our state who wish to help keep alive this educational = programming: it is a cornerstone of education and inspiration for the next generation = of organists.   All the materials may be viewed and downloaded from the home page of the AGOnLine archive: http://www.TheAmericanOrganist.com . Select "AGOnLine".   Best regards,   John Nisbet AGOnLine
