From: "D Quentin Bellamy" <dqb@boltblue.com> Date: Wed, 17 Dec 2003 10:51:04 +0000   Dearly beloved of the Confraternity of Pipe Chatters -- a truly caring bunch after all!   How fun to be the source of mystery so far as my id is concerned! The D is not for Dan, worthy though it may be -- one presuming that Dan is short for Daniel, the most famous example of whom spent a pleasant evening in the company of the lions amongst other things thus giving rise to the familiar Sunday School hymn,   Dare to be a Daniel Dare to stand alone Dare to have a purpose firm And Dare to make it known.   My father, and his father before him were both Joseph's. Significantly at this time of year we can be reminded that whenever there was a need, the Lord God always had a Joseph somewhere up his sleeve.....   But the tradition of Joseph Bellamy's was rudely cut short when I as the first-born was named Quentin -- and to be topical for a moment there is the ultimate Quentin --- Maclean so I guess one is in good company.   So to the mystery "D".....   Well in the UK another significant, nay FAMOUS Bellamy is Dr David, of botanical fame. Since there is already one significant David Bellamy, my first name has been reduced to a mere initial and so D is simply short for D........   The six month spell of time spent in South Africa was not significantly mission; it was sabbatical. Alas no significant pipe organs were experienced, and the Church of the Holy Trinity, Rustenburg was the proud possessor of a Yamaha E5. Though I never was struck on Yamaha's of the orgaphonic variety, it was not bad really, and co-incidentally I was given an E5 on my return home for use in a series of Pleasant Sunday Afternoon Concerts to raise funds for the rebuild of the organ at St Martin's Church. It gave stirling (if occasionally crackly) service but has now moved on to the residence of Ivor Buckingham in Shropshire (he of Compton Organ fame) where much in the way of TLC is being lavished upon it!   And so far as the medieval heap of St Giles in the centre of Wrexham is concerned, well I was there last Sunday, administering the Blessed Sacrament at a Service of Ordination for my other half who is now a Priest in the Church in Wales -- this morning is her first Celebration as an Anglican Priest --- oops.... better be there..... must dash!   But before going I can promise that e'er long we have tales to regail you with, concerning the rebuild of the Llay Church Pipe organ and the demise of the BOGGIS pipe organ..... tis a stormy tale which I will share in due course   Regards for now   Q

Santa's arrival happens this way: at first, Mrs E. (who is an active choir member) appears singing "Happy, happy Santa Claus" (a counterpart to = "Santa Claus is Comin' to town" in the USA). Then Santa himself comes dressed as what he really once was: *Bishop Saint Niccola di Bari*; with Mitra, croisier and all. He is accompanied by four "modern" Santas in red clothes rimmed with white fur and a sack over the shoulder. These four Santas are the helpers who give gifts to the kids after Saint Nicola had hold a short "Kinderpredigt" (sermon for infants).   Recently we got two handicaps, however: the "Santa's Fair" is getting overcrowded, and the original Saint Niccola migrated back to Germany, leaving the organisation to Mrs E. The actual Saint Niccola is Mr. S., our spiritual advisor, who is a kind and active man with many good ideas and plays the accordion very well but has a rather short, slender stature, = lacks acting talent at all and doesn't master the Spanish. As for the crowd, the number of helpers was increased to eight, and the sacks were substituted by kegs which are located at strategic points at = the fair. But to recruit Santa's helpers becomes more difficult each year. No = wonder: playing Santa in heavy disguises under a merciless south caribbean sun for 100+ kids demands a robust nature. It's a steady joke that all adult men disappear from the fair at 2 pm, reappearing at 4,00 Pm when Santa's actuation is over. Therefore, Last Minute Santa Recruiting became a new sport.   This year Mrs E. catched a bad cold and wasn't able to sing. At 2 pm the male population vanished as usual, and I was searching for my wife to leave too when a hand fell heavily over my right shoulder: "Thanks heaven, Andres, that you're here- we have a nasty problem and need your help. Mrs E. cannot sing- we need an experienced sing leader like you. Please go upstairs the parish house, and follow Mrs E's instructions". Upstairs I was greeted by Mrs E. who helped me to put on the Santa = disguise meanwhile she asked: "Andres, are you able to play Santa without glasses?" = - "No ". "Then pull your hood over your face as deep as you can". "What for? Most Santas have glasses!" - "*Steel rimmed spectacles*, Andres- not = plastic rimmed bifocals!". Historicistic wievpoints at a Santa actuation was new for me. Nevertheless = I pulled my hood deep over my face as indicated. The heat was hellish. "Thee hee hee... look at Andres the Mad Monk" - "Where's Rudolph the Reindeer?" - "Dead, I suppose- got a heat stroke", were the comments of my fellow Santas. "Would you Pleeeease stop your funny comments?" asked Mrs E., whose usual good humour was drowned out by her cold. "And where the heck is Mr S.?"- "Downstairs, picking up the scores and the accordion"- "Whaaat? He'll play accordion? A Saint Niccola playing accordion?"- Mrs E. shocked.- "Yeap- = it's quite an original idea, isn't it?" asked one of our fellows. "And if the accordion goes 'kaput' we even have the Tech here in the crew" said the other. Mrs E. turned her eyes to heaven.   Will be ctd... =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D First was the cat, then was the Orgler.

Interesting. I thought Schulke was a long-gone organ company of the 19th Century. I have one division of an organ that was originally a tracker installation in the church that merged with Grace Church, Colorado Springs, in about 1924-1926 time frame. The Schulke division was merged with the Roosevelt organ in Grace Church on a new three-manual console by Munier, and in about 1928 replaced by the four-manual organ that is in there today. I hope to find a new home for these 27 stops as a re-incarnated organ in a church someday, soon. Know anyone that might be interested? Appreciatively, F. Richard Burt Dorian Organs ..

What is interesting is the tonal structure was complete up through a mixture, in a day when many builders were not using mixtures in smaller organs. Peter asked: > Have you heard your orphan division? What are its > characteristics? Only by blowing the pipes individually through the toes. The character is bright, clear, and it doesn't take much pressure to excite them. The Schuelke was on a tracker windchest, so I suspect it was at a reasonable pressure. The Roosevelt was on an electrified windchest. These windchests were described in Audsley's "The Art of Organbuilding" and in Barnes" The Contemporary American Organ." It remains to be seen if it will be appropriate to "restore" these organs or to use them as the core for a more modern tonal scheme. The Roosevelt was mostly 16-8-4 with a three- rank Harmonic Mixture on top; including three independent pedal ranks; one of which is a 16-foot Violone, similar to the Violone 16 in Trinity Church, Denver. The scalings are moderate; not at all typical of the early 20th Century Organs with large blowers. From 1930-ish to February 1999, the organ was in a private residence in Denver which was built for the organ. In 1933, the year I was born, his wife chopped the cable and had "that ugly console mess" removed from her living room. The organ was mute until we removed it from the house. We have the Roosevelt windchests. The Schuelke windchest was too large to get out of the basement, and we left it behind. We also left the huge Kinetic blower behind. The console, of course, was trashed in 1933. There are some slim Aeoline strings, and other interesting stops, including a Roosevelt Doppelflote and a Gottfried Oboe Horn (probably similar to Skinner's English Horn from appearance). The organ has been stored in a dry place ever since it was removed from Denver. F. Richard Burt Dorian Organs ..

(back) Subject: Is Anglican chant becoming a dead art? From: <bruce.shaw@shaw.ca> Date: Wed, 17 Dec 2003 11:45:59 -0700   If I understand correctly, a number of years ago there was a push by some = Anglican churches to have every service be Mass rather than alternating = Mass and Matins/Morning Prayer or whatever the previous arrangement was. = Many churches no longer have the draw to justify Evensong. As a result, = there is no service which has the Psalms as part of the liturgy. Hence = there is little opportunity to do Anglican chant.   I've gotten around this by doing the chant of the day during Communion in = place of an anthem (for which I lack the resources, music and practice = time) and Sunday evening Evensong (which I'm the only church in the area = doing weekly - the Cathedral does it every other week).   Is anybody else experiencing this?    
(back) Subject: Re: Is Anglican chant becoming a dead art? From: "Beau Surratt" <Beau.Surratt@theatreorgans.com> Date: Wed, 17 Dec 2003 13:03:12 -0600   Hi! Is there a reason why you can't chant the Psalm of the Day in its correct place in the Liturgy? I've always thought it was supposed to be between the Old Testament and Gospel readings. This is how it has been in every Anglican church I've ever been to. St. Luke's in Evanston,IL uses Anglican Chant for the Psalm almost every week at two of their three services of Holy Eucharist.   Does anyone have any suggestions for teaching a Non-Anglican choir to sing Anglican Chant? I love to use various settings of the Psalms in the tradition in which I work, but my choir has yet to be able to do Anglican Chant.   I suppose this should probably be responded to privately.     Blessings, Beau Surratt Minister of Worship and Music United Church of Hyde Park, Chicago
