(back) Subject: Worst Organ Spec From: "First Christian Church of Casey, Illinois" <kzrev@rr1.net> Date: Fri, 20 Jun 2003 07:48:31 -0500   Ross--your Estey "worst organ spec" candidate looks remarkably like an Aeolian residential instrument designed primarily to be played by rolls.   I think my candidate for worst might be a British octopod with a single 8' diapason rank as the total spec. I understand these were not uncommon in small churches.   Dennis Steckley   Every gun that is made and every warship that is launched, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed--Dwight Eisenhower

Permission gladly granted! Home organs can be whatever we want them to be - I don't think "canons of good taste" apply for home organs = for our own use.   several large grins..........   Ross
