My subscription is = up to date! This is the first time I have had a problem with my Greek home page. I have two - the original Yahoo, which is still on line - and the newer "personalised" one. The gallery can be accessed through Yahoo http://www.geocities.com/harfo32/JohnFossathome.html or directly, I think (as it sometimes seems to need a password) at http://uk.photos.yahoo.com/harfo32   The Compton pictures are 15 to 18, though I had a problem accessing these just now. Maybe the site is overloaded. I succeeded by starting with 18 = and going backwards using the "previous" button.   As it is Saturday I won't be able to get the www.johnfoss.gr site sorted = out until Monday - but I hope it will be fixed then.

Are there any "must see" pipe or electronic organs in = the > Norfolk/Chesapeake/Va Beach VA area which I should definitely visit??   Well, there was recently, on another list, a flurry of talk about a large (too large for the building) but apparently excellent organ at the Bruton Parish Church in Williamsburg, which is played quite a bit. A/S over 100 ranks, as I recall. And even if it were not there, Williamsburg is worth = a visit for many reasons.   Is it too far to do a tour of the Taylor & Boody orgelbau?--Staunton, Vir.   Alan    
(back) Subject: Norfolk, VA organs From: "Sand Lawn" <glawn@jam.rr.com> Date: Sat, 5 Apr 2003 16:49:14 -0600   There is a large Casavant/Letourneau at Christ and St. Luke's = Episcopal.... three manuals, 76 ranks, 1963/1997. First Presbyterian has a 1992 threee manual fifty-four rank J.W.Walker. There are two Aeolian-Skinners, a two manual in Ch. of the Good Shepherd, Episcopal and a three manual in = Epworth United Methodist. There is an interesting 1927 Midmer-Losh in Sacred = Heart RC that was restored by the Columbia Organ Co. in 1994.   Just a short list.... maybe this will help you get started.   Sand   PS... Alan, the Aeolian-Skinner in Williamsburg has been rebuilt so many times it we hard to say that is an Aeolian-Skinner.

The Mormon Sunday worship service has no contemporary music, songs nor instruments, except for the occasional "special musical number" = prepared by usually a young member of the congregation that is "pop-styled." But these are actually proscribed by the music section of the General Handbook of Instructions. This book is the same in the Mormon Church throughout the world. Even brass instruments are not allowed in the Sunday Service, only woodwinds and strings. However, I have sung in church choirs which used brass in the chapel at an additional evening "fireside" service. (Is that why the angel Moroni plays his trumpet atop the SL Temple?)   As for liturgical worship in SLC, I assure you that good music is provided in the Cathedral of the Madeleine on east South Temple street. They have a wonderful tracker pipe organ and choir. I just attended an evening "Founder's Day" concert there at which 3 Britten pieces (including = Festival Te Deum) and Bach Mass in g-moll BWV 235 were performed. I have sung both = of these in my community choir, the Utah Baroque Ensemble. (Which BTW Dan Gawthrop helped found a few years ago.) They have concerts every 2-4 = weeks. I could check for you, but they have a website.   Our UBE has also participated in services at the First Presbyterian Church in SLC, which is 1 block east of the Madeleine on South Temple. They have = a nice organ and a better acoustic.   Then there is Cathedral of St. Mark on about 300 E 100 South in SLC. It is Episcopal and their music minister grew up just down the street from me, Rulon Christiansen. We have sung there often and I believe that would also be satisfying.   Regards local Mormon choirs, I'll say later.   Richard Adams Orem UT

No surprise, I guess. But thanks for the clarification!   Alan

Having recently read a few Anne Rice Vampire novels, I will be watching this man with great care. Will he = attend only evening recitals?   Looking forward to this summer's OHS Convention in Central Transylvania,   Malcolm Wechsler www.mander-organs.com   ----- Original Message ----- From: "MARAUDER" <kmoyer@marauder.millersville.edu> To: "pipechat" <pipechat@pipechat.org>; "piporg-l" <piporg-l@listserv.albany.edu>; "organchat" <organchat@egroups.com> Sent: Saturday, April 05, 2003 2:49 PM Subject: Tried-and-True OHS players in OHS 2003     Dear Friends,   " I still recall the 1876 OHS convention with Gerhard (?)

It's not specific to musicians. The reason for this is found in the New Testament. None of the teachers or ministers of Christ's church = were paid -- it was all about service."       I'm only commenting on your one statement. It sounded incorrect and upon checking found the following passage from the New Testament: I = Corinthians 9:3-14. Particularly verses 13-14: "13Do ye not know that they which minister about holy things live of the things of the temple? and they = which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar? 14Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel." = The King James Version, (Cambridge: Cambridge) 1769. I think that even organists can be ministering the gospel. Just wanted to comment on this.   Regards, Jonathan Humbert Organist, Word of Life Chapel Bainbridge, PA
