(back) Subject: The indefensible From: "Colin Mitchell" <cmys13085@yahoo.co.uk> Date: Sun, 5 Jan 2003 03:07:25 +0000 (GMT)   Hello,   Did I say something wrong?   Actually, I once wound up a Dutch organist/host about this when I played the organ at Haarlem for a couple of hours (Gosh!)   I managed to keep a straight face when I suggested that EP action and a detached console would be better for the organist!   I was very disappointed when he retained his composure as he sternly explained why mechanical action was an essential component. That's the trouble with the Dutch....they never explode in your face.   Anywhere else and I would have been ejected from the organ loft, the church and possibly the country.   Instead, reason and intellect prevailed....and prevailed....and prevailed.   In fact, I felt quite guilty because,having launched into his aural thesis, I didn't have the heart to stop him and, like a dutiful schoolboy,I simply sat there and listened to him for half an hour.   I could only blame myself, and to this day, he probably regards me as "that fool from England".....which probably sounds half attractive in Dutch-speak.   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK     Cremona@502cs wrote:> > Gasp! > Such heresy!

(back) Subject: A fantastic website From: "Colin Mitchell" <cmys13085@yahoo.co.uk> Date: Sun, 5 Jan 2003 03:19:01 +0000 (GMT)   Hello,   Those who have read the incomplete draft of my Schulze article, or who appreciate the monumental quality of Schulze's work, will appreciate a fantastic website devoted to the famous organ of St.Bartholomew's, Armley, Leeds.....just a few miles down the road from where I live.   It is this instrument, more than any other, which inspired the work of T C Lewis and which gained unconditional praise from many leading musicians of the day. (1869)   The great Doncaster Schulze (5 manual) and the superb Armley Schulze were, without doubt, the two instruments which correspond to the Walcker at Methuen on this side of the pond. The impact on organ building was enormous and lasting.   The website is especially interesting at this time. Not only does it give a very comprehensive history of the organ, the church, the specification and many interesting anecdotes, it also includes some remarkable photographs.   As we speak, the organ is being totally restored, with completion expected by the Summer of 2004; the work having been entrusted to Messrs.Harrison & Harrison of Durham.   The website address is as follows:-   http://www.armley-schulze.freeserve.co.uk   Enjoy!   Regards, Colin Mitchell UK   __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?

This episode has been broadcast previously and is very enjoyable. Besides the time you list above i think it is also broadcast three hours later.   David
