Bach     St. Anne led naturally into the Procession, to which we sang, O God, Our Help in Ages Past (selected by the groom).   The couple had requested Now Thank We All Our God for the recessional, so the postlude was (of course) the Sigfrid Karl-Elert setting thereof.   The Hymn of the Day was Hear Us Now, Our God and Father, to Hyfrydol.   From a purely musical point of view, it was about as fine as a traditional wedding could BE, I think.   Alan

(back) Subject: I Wanted to be There for the Wedding From: "Mike Gettelman" <mike3247@earthlink.net> Date: Sun, 08 Jun 2003 11:03:58 -0400   My heart is heavy today with guilt over wanting to kill somebody at the Expedia dot com travel web site. Seems making a flight reservation with them complete with credit card info does not mean you have actually purchased your tickets. On Friday night June 6th, I learned the $288 price they had quoted me had become over $1200 if I still wanted to get there and back. What is really ironic, they would have flown me round trip for $138 if I would come back Monday instead of Sunday, but my work schedule would not permit that. I had promised Keith and Lee I would be there for their wedding, and even been elevated to "Usher" status by Alan Freed. Folks were counting on me. I had even written to my friend Hans Hell to let him know I would be in Midtown that weekend. Please permit me to apologize to them as well as all of you who expected pictures and a story to be shared with you. I also apologize to God for having such murderous thoughts about Expedia. The mistake was mine for not demanding a "confirmation" number, for not checking with the airlines for confirmation sooner, and for not having the financial where with all to absorb the ticket price increase. From Alan's reports, it sounds like the wedding was a splendid and intimate affair. I am heart sick to have missed meeting the Pipechat folks who attended. Best wishes to Keith and Lee, and many thanks to Alan Freed, Felix Hell, Malcolm Wechsler, and others who helped make this such a special day for them.   Respectfully Mike Gettelman

This is the last paragraph of a employment re-application we must sign which says that we are not child abusers.     I rather nullifies any contracts we ever worked to negotiate, doesn't it?

I trust NOTHING on Internet when it comes to travel reservations. Most of it is really a rip-off.   I hope they didn't dock your credit card and then left you holding the bag!!   Here's how to contact Sue: (800) 874-7558.   I recommend her for ANYONE!

I have entered the classroom, and have paid my tuition. This would have been only the second time I have flown in 15 years, and the last trip (to Little Rock AR) came off without a hitch using another Internet travel service. Where I went most wrong with this one was failure to verify that I had a payment confirmation number, and failure to call the airline to verify my tickets until much too late. I guess I'm about as good a DIY travel agent as I am a DIY organ builder Rich. I promise to call Clinton Travel next time. Thanks for the tip.   Richard Schneider wrote:   > > > Next time you have such murderous thought, think "CLINTON > TRAVEL" instead! >

Once a judgment is obtained (lucky fellow!) Not necessarily.   I did that once to a skank renter that was continually dodging me in paying rent. I simply changed the locks and he took me to court. Not only did he get his stuff back and never have to pay his back rent, but managed to get me fined $500.00 to add injury to insult.   It depends COMPLETELY upon the state statutes!   Faithfully,   -- Richard Schneider, PRES/CEO Schneider Pipe Organs, Inc. 41-43 Johnston St./P.O.

(back) Subject: That little unit organ design... From: <TubaMagna@aol.com> Date: Sun, 8 Jun 2003 18:15:46 EDT   Dear Pipe Chatters: After four days of attempting to re-calibrate my body clock, I seem to = be conscious enough to post a semi-coherent explanation of the little unit = organ that is going into Alexander Chapel at First Presbyterian Church in NYC. Since many have written privately with assorted questions, I shall briefly = answer as many points as possible in this one posting. Q: Is this the chapel's first pipe organ? A: Yes. Q: Is it replacing an electronic device? A: Yes. Q: How many builders submitted bids? A: Four. Q: Why a unit organ? A: My initial design was for a small, = Georgian-style mechanical action instrument at the rear of the chapel. The committee and architect felt that it would eat up too much seating in this tiny, 50-seat =   chapel, and that its location beneath the required sprinklers made it a = risky prospect in the event of an accidental sprinkler discharge. Much to my = surprise, the preservation architect felt that if I could design something for the front = of the chapel, with minimal blockage of the stained glass windows, I could = build up there, but the console would have to be detached. It was felt that an extension organ would be more versatile. Q: Why no expression enclosure? A: Expression enclosures consume a = great deal of space and budget; the swing of the shutter blades, plus the walls = of the box, can consume the space of two stops. Thousands of chamber organs = over the centuries have been built without them, and this must support the = robust hymn singing of fifty people. Q: What is the analysis of the ranks? A:   (A) 16' Dulciana, 80 notes, 1-12 free harmonium reeds, 13-24 flamed copper, 25-80 50% tin. (B) 16' Stopped Flute, 92 notes, 1-16 red oak, 17-61 poplar, 62-92 50% tin (C) 4' Principal, 68 notes, 50% tin (D) 4' Chimney Flute, 56 notes, 50% tin (E) 1-1/3' Quint Flute, 44 notes, 50% tin (F) 4/5' Tierce, 39 notes, 50% tin   Q: What is the actual stoplist?

Yes, I have a confirmation number and United does have me listed for the scheduled flights with the specific seats I requested.   And no, I don't work for Expedia or have any connection with them.   Their telephone people were outstanding when I had trouble with an online reservation.   At this point, I will regularly consult them in the future, as well as other sources, when I have need of their services.   Just another point of view -   Del W.

(back) Subject: Pentecost Sunday From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@direcway.com> Date: Sun, 08 Jun 2003 19:12:59 -0500   Well, my proffer of free service to Lee and Keith is moot because inasmuch as they are married, I cannot talk them out of it or put them out of their misery. Neat photos - thanks for sharing them. Sounds like a fab service - wish I had Felix to play my wedding, but then I'm not marrying again so perhaps I can engage him for the funeral. I do pay well, and more than one will celebrate my passing, particularly if there's free food. Wow! It was great! Bruce was right - getting back on the bench was wonderful, and none of the angst or hassle I suffered from being a church organist was present. What's more important was that I had no performance anxiety - maybe that curse is broken. And only one moment of ADHD - while the choir was filing in during the prelude, two male members were talking of a fishing trip (I told Rick the other day that I want us to go to fly-fishing school), and I listened to them and missed a pick-up note on the second play-through of the prelude. No one caught it but me, but I realized that I must quit eavesdropping. I stayed focused while acolytes walked all around me and during all the talking and movement (yes, the congregation talks through the prelude or postlude). And the choir robe was not as uncomfortable as in experiences past.   I kept it simple: The Adagio e dolce from the Bach third trio sonata was prelude, Rhosymedre from Vaughan Williams was the offertory, and Chuckerbutty's Paean was the postlude. I managed to slip a moment of "Veni Creator Spiritus" during the quiet prayer - my contribution to Pentecost, and surprisingly the associate pastor who prayed picked up on it. Everyone loved the offertory, and told me so while I was playing the postlude - go figure.   Thanks for the prayers.   Did anyone have the congregation sing "Come, Holy Ghost, our souls inspire" (Veni Creator Spiritus) today?   Anyone need a kitten?   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com
