It was placed in the President's Lodging, and the President and his wife spent a week or two going through it and seeing what was there. As far as I know it is still there now.   With regards to vinyl, I no longer have equipment that will play 78 r.p.m. recordings, but still have a turntable that will play 33 and 45. I now rarely play any of my phonograph recordings and have been toying for some time with giving them away. I believe the Organ Historical Society's American Organ Archive at Princeton is still collecting vinyl, and would probably welcome at least those organ recordings they don't already have in their collection.   John Speller  
(back) Subject: Keyboards at the LA Cathedral From: "Ray Kimber" <ray@kimber.com> Date: Sat, 8 Feb 2003 09:01:54 -0700   Hello,   I have spent many months attempting to figure out a keyboard that will = feel OK to players who have many different sized fingers. During the AIO convention in LA I took a little measuring guage to check the width of the tops of sharps on the organs we visited, they covered quite a variation. = I also measured the spacing of the sharps in relationship to the width of = the naturals. Again, much variation.   The one keyboard that I thought was sensible was the one on the organ at = the LA Cathedral. This was further confirmed by Graham Blythe, who performed = a concert for the AES (Audio Engineering Society) who commented that it was "perfectly lovely".   I told, at the time, that the keyboards were manufactured by Harris Precision. Last week I phoned Harris to order some new keyboards and was told by David Harris that I was mistaken.   So, does anyone know the brand of keyboard in the LA Cathedral?   Kind regards,   Ray Kimber

I was somewhat shocked to learn this, but the reasonable = explanation is that Westminster Choir College apparently has an extensive collection, and for OHS to maintain a duplicate collection in the same location would = be wasteful.   I had also considered donating my organ LPs at some point -- about 2000 of them -- and was given the name Nancy Wicklund as the librarian at Westminster to speak to. Haven't done it yet myself whether because of inertia, laziness, or residual dread at being without objects I've had for = a long time.   Michael Fox

(back) Subject: Re: The Sigh Syndrome & St. Giles International Organ School From: "Malcolm Wechsler" <manderusa@earthlink.net> Date: Sat, 8 Feb 2003 12:38:34 -0500   Well, Ross, such venom from your usually gentle pen is amazing to me. I = can only say that I was meeting and hearing Anne Marsden Thomas for the first time, and as I made clear, was very much impressed. Perhaps over ten years ago, when you heard her, her playing was as you described. For us, she played the Bach B Minor Prelude and Fugue, and it was thoughtfully paced, and without a trace of the staccato and breakneck speed you describe. I found it quite beautiful. I guess everyone has a chance to change, and I suppose also, everyone listens differently.   As for the Organ, I have only heard it once, and that was in a full = recital by Jane Parker Smith in the City of London Festival. With the knowledge = that it was, of necessity, very much an economy job, one which is still = evolving, it certainly did not strike me as offensive enough to elicit the kind of comments you have made.   I have been trying to work out the relevance of the following to the discussion: "The church is largely devoid furniture and has a very tiny congregation." When I was there, perhaps predating your visit, there were certainly ample chairs for a quite large audience to sit in. There = appeared to be an altar, and chairs for the clergy. I am not quite sure what other furniture struck you as missing. I cannot speak concerning the size of the congregation. With the great number of flats in the Barbican Center, I = hope things might have improved in that regard.   "Sorry, but you can keep both Cripplegate, and Anne crippling Bach."

(back) Subject: Copying LPs to CD/Rs From: "Bob Conway" <conwayb@sympatico.ca> Date: Sat, 08 Feb 2003 13:36:39 -0500   Paul,   I have just read Mack's post, - it was Mack that got me on to being able = to copy LPs to CDs, his advice is very pertinent!   It is quite easy, - but you have to have both the hardware and the = software to do it.   Firstly your turntable must be plugged into the Line Input on your computer. If you do not have a Line Input, then it will not work. If = your turntable does not have a pre-amp, you will have to buy one, for the = output from the turntable might be too low level to work for your computer. The turntable that I use is an Optimus Lab 1100 that I bought from Radio Shack. It has a built in pre-amp, and is sold specially for the purpose = of making CDs from LPs using a computer.   You must have a Soundcard in your computer, and it does not have to be the =   best one on the market, the one I have is a SoundBlaster Live, which came with the computer. This has a Line Input.   You need to have a CD-Writer drive in your computer, again, you do not = need one that is the top of the line, I have a HP CD-Writer 9300, which comes with all the basic necessary software.   I also have the DART (Digital Audio Restoration Technology) Version 4, - although I think that this has been upgraded since I bought it, - but the version I have does all I want it to do.   Perhaps the most often used feature of the DART software is the "De-Clicking" and the "De-Hissing" for removing unwanted clicks and hiss from the LP input signal.   When you first attempt to use the software, it might seem a bit of a bother, but it doesn't take long to get over the initial use, and from = then on it becomes very easy to use.   If you have all the above, then you will be able to record your LPs. if you have any more questions do not fail to ask.   Good luck,   Bob Conway

The 2nd-hand shops almost always still have several turntables, for a miserable $20 to $30. I have three good working ones in the house attached to my various systems. And I deliberately got three stunning almost-new ones a few years ago and hold them in storage until or if I ever need them. And we have a firm in Wellington that still sells 200 different kinds of stylus. It, surprisingly, still sells 78rpm needles as well - these are made in Dundee these days.   Ross

Between the two software programs, I have both but prefer Groove Mechanic as it is a bit more straightforward than the DART program plus being less expensive, not why I decided to buy it is very easy to use and it will also dehiss tapes if you have any you want to transfer to cd too. I use the Roxio Easy CD Creator software for my cd burner although Nero seems very popular now too.   Cheers, Mack
