It should be pointed out that L=FFbunt made mandatory the closing of museu= ms for cleaning purposes after several catastrophes in Holland, where he offer= ed a windmill cleaning service that did not make pushing the "off" button on= the windmill the first order of business. The result of that foolhardy miscalculation led to the well-known "Let me give you a hand" and was featured in paintings as diverse as those by Pieter de Hooch, Franz Hal= s, and even, surprisingly, Piet Mondrian (in the first decade of the 20th century). Vincent van Gogh also got into the act but thought they'd utt= ered "Lend me your ear." It is said that Paul Wittgenstein commissioned John=   Cage to write 4:33 in mute memoriam. Feike Asma was at the premiere, coughed uncontrollably, and to the relief of all present was forcibly removed at 2:07.   The cheese sandwich L=FFbunt is most famous for as far as the world of organbuilding is concerned is that which contains, apart from bread and=   other amenities, two slices of Swiss cheese held together with tiny tin=   whistles in place of toothpicks. This stroke of genius led directly to = the idea of pipes sitting on a slider chest. But does he get credit for inventing this? Does an Allen have lips? Hermann Schleider blatantly to= ok the credit whilst poor old L=FFbunt was off writing another one of his interminable symphonies.   This and other sad events in L=FFbunt's life led to the slogan: If it's= by B=F8ggild, it's bound to be boggled.   Bob Lind         He is also known for fighting for the right to dry clean an elevators [sic]in Belgium, establishing the tradition of havin= g art museums close on Mondays, and making the cheese sandwich the standard u= nit of currency before the introcution of the Euro.   =

(back) Subject: RE: One listener's review of M. Gallagher's recital at Vassar From: "Emmons, Paul" <pemmons@wcupa.edu> Date: Tue, 11 Feb 2003 14:59:39 -0500   A dedicatory recital with nothing on the program after Mendelssohn?   This would be appropriate enough if the organ were especially built for renaissance and baroque music, which in turn would be appropriate if there are other organs on the Vassar campus. (Are those by Gress-Miles still alive and kicking?) Otherwise, it testifies to a rather narrow outlook. A dedicatory recital is supposed to demonstrate the = organ's full capabilities. Are these really as limited as the program suggests?   What is the character of the organ (specifically, its temperament)? = Unless it is tuned to meantone, I am surprised that a dedicatory recitalist would dismiss the entire twentieth century as unsuitable for it. Right, I don't enjoy attempts to render late-romantic (especially French) literature on = an organ inspired by baroque ideals. However, even with a temperament like Werckmeister or Kirnberger III), I'd think that it could give a fine = account of some neo-classical compositions from the likes of Hindemith, Distler, David, or the mid-20th-century German-Americans. Perhaps the later recitalists in the series will redress this imbalance.   This makes me curious: does anyone know of any contemporary compositions that are *intended* for performance with a mean-tone temperament? This temperament does have its musical advantages if properly exploited. An occasional such work would make a lot more sense than some of the gimmicks in which contemporary composers have indulged.      
(back) Subject: Temple Sinai, New Orleans From: "Roy Redman" <rredman@imagin.net> Date: Tue, 11 Feb 2003 16:41:01 -0600   Some of you may know that the original console of EM Skinner OP 622 1926 was replaced many years ago with an Austin console. Now we have a contract with Temple Sinai to build a new "Skinner replica" console for the organ. Keith Morgan told me some years ago that he saw the original Sinai console in terrible shape in someone's garage in the south. In preparation for designing the new console, we would like to learn as much as possible about the original If any of you have any information at all, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks !

(back) Subject: "Come to Jesus" From: "David Scribner" <david@blackiris.com> Date: Tue, 11 Feb 2003 21:46:48 -0600   The phrase "He/She couldn't play 'Come to Jesus' in Whole Notes" seems to be an often used phrase. Tonight at our AGO dinner this phrase came up in conversation at the table where I was sitting. The question came up "is there really a hymn called 'Come to Jesus'"? Although there was some speculation none of us had the answer to that question. So I throw it out to our distinguished group - Is there really a hymn called "Come to Jesus" and where is it found? And to take it a step further - how did that often used phrase come about?   Will be interested in the answers   David
