The most novel = aspect of the Klais for me was the fact that to get a general piston to = operate firstyou had to select its number (e.g. push 2 to get General 2, = push 2 twice to get General 22, etc.) and THEN push the piston select = button to have the combination itself appear on the instrument.

Gwynedd-Mercy College of Gwynedd Valley, PA, [19437] will be installing a new president at the college. Carol Evans, their director, wishes to use a "festive, yet short musical response" to the actual event. She asked, "Any ideas?" How about 1. Old Hundredth Psalm Tune (All People That on Earth Do Dwell) as arranged by Ralph Vaughan Williams for Organ, Brass, Timpani, Choir and Congregation   2. Jubilate Deo for 8-part choir and organ by Giovanni Gabrieli (with brass doubling the parts or for 4 voices answered by 4 brass instruments..)   Any other suggestions for Carol Evans? evans.c@gmc.edu Director, Voices of Gwynedd Gwynedd-Mercy College Gwynedd Valley, PA 19437   Greetings to all from the frozen northeast, Pat Maimone Post Chapel III/57 Aeolian-Skinner/Moeller/Gress-Miles West Point, NY patmai@juno.com yp6867@exmail.usma.army.mil     ________________________________________________________________ Sign Up for Juno Platinum Internet Access Today Only $9.95 per month!

Ollikkala" <71431.2534@compuserve.com> Date: Thu, 30 Jan 2003 22:18:27 -0500   Fred Swann is playing a major recital at the RCCO Ottawa, Ontario, Canada Convention in July, on what was the historic Casavant originally built by Joseph Casavant, father of the two sons who later took over the business. The church is Notre Dame Cathedral, and when Joseph Casavant put his instrument in, the city was called Bytown, I believe, maybe just a town then. The organ was installed in 1850. Titulaire is Rachel Laurin, formerly at Montreal's St. Joseph Oratory.   http://www.rcco-ottawa.ca   Judy Ollikkala
