A finer organ than THAT can't be IMAGINED, much less BUILT. Kimball's craftsmanship and quality of materials is lEGENDARY, as is their voicing.   Mr. Farnum's Masterpiece, the large Casavant in Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Boston is another possibility ... TWO complete FOUR-MANUAL organs controlled by one console.   The large Austin out of Medinah Temple in Chicago is a MAGNIFICENT instrument.   I don't know what's happening with the War Memorial Auditorium Kimball, but it's another magnificent large instrument that would serve a large church well, if it becomes available.   Those are only FOUR of a HOST of endangered LARGE ROMANTIC "vintage" organs with MORE than enough reeds AND mixtures to go around, and THEN some (grin).   A. Thompson-Allen, Sebastian Gluck, Patrick Murphy, John Bishop, and many OTHER builders can locate you such instruments, AND rebuild them.   Cheers,   Bud   Tyler Robertson wrote: > > > From: TubaMagna@aol.com > > .
