I've been out of town..working my tail off lately, but would like to comment on the "state of affairs" in some churches. maybe I'll get thrown off the list?   I remember some long time ago, being "escourted" to see a nice 1960's Casavant. I was allowed to play, and was told that "I had a very nice touch, for someone so inexperienced"...I was hmmm...let's see....23yrs old. HA! anyway, several years hence (hence?....) I received a phone call on a Friday evening, could I play for a wedding rehearsal? guess where? anyway, I wound up playing for the wedding as well. The resident organist had fallen and broken something. (We were later good organist friends (though she became involved in selling securities, and making a fortune!).) I didn't have to change any pistons either.   next time that guy wants to play for a wedding....make sure you go in after he's got his registrations all ready and mess em up. <G>     btw guyz (and galz), I'll be headed to FL Easter Sunday, right after church. planning on stopping to visit folks along the way too. hope you'll be around.     Jon

French publications = are VERY expensive, and you'd undoubtedly save enough to pay your gasoline, parking, and buy yourself a nice lunch while down there. You can park in the Union Station parking garage, and walk to the Library, which is about six blocks. Or you can park in the suburbs (provided you get there early enough in the morning, or late enough in the afternoon, to be able to find space in one of the Metro parking lots) and take the Metro to Union = Station.   Dave (also in Baltimore)

(back) Subject: J. D. Christie at Oberlin From: "Mike Gettelman" <mike3247@earthlink.net> Date: Sun, 02 Mar 2003 21:29:35 -0500   I almost didn't make the trip due to the threat of snow, but with still clear skies an hour before the 3pm recital was due to begin, I decided it was worth the risk. James David Christie, the newest addition to the Oberlin College Organ Department Faculty was playing his first faculty recital on the Oberlin campus, and he was using both the Flentrop tracker in Warner Hall as well as the new Fisk in Finney Chapel. A sort of mini organ crawl. Professor Christie's reputation as a stickler for accurate scholarly performance had me wondering if I would enjoy his kind of playing, but I need not have worried. His interpretations are full of warmth and expression and he certainly knows organ literature. here is the program:   Part I: WARNER CONCERT HALL FLENTROP ORGAN   Praeludium in D Minor (BuxWV 140) Dieterich Buxtehude (ca1637-1707)   Partite diverse sopra: Sei gegr=FC=DFet, Jesu g=FCtig (BWV 768) Johann Sebastian Bach (chorale and eleven variations) (1685-1750)   Praeludium in D Minor Georg B=F6hm (1661-1733)   Part II: FINNEY CHAPEL FISK ORGAN   Grand Choeur in E-flat Major (1846; unpublished) C=E9sar Franck (1822-1890)   Sonata I in D Minor, op. 42 (1861) Alexandre Guilmant II. Pastorale (1837-1911)   Sortie in B-flat Major (ca1896) J. Guy Ropartz (1864-1955)   M=E9ditation (1964; published 2001) Maurice Durufl=E9 (1902-1986)   Trois Pi=E8ces Jehan Alain III. Litanies (1937) (1911-1940)   Of particular note is the Grand Chouer in E-flat Major by C=E9sar Franck. This rather recently discovered work by Franck had it's first playing at Oberlin this day, and just the second playing in all of the USA. This is an exciting work that is lucky to have Christie as its champion. Of course Professor Christie endeared himself to me by playing the Alain Litanies, a piece that ranks among my all time favorites. The good Professor played his program on the Flentrop without speaking a word to the audience, letting the music speak for itself. I thoroughly enjoy this aging tracker, and have never quite understood some of the negative comments I've heard about Flentrops in general, and this instrument in particular. Once we all moved to Finney Chapel and the Fisk, Professor Christie gave us a good 10 minute lecture about the literature he would play on the Fisk. He is an affable and interesting speaker, and one gets the sense he would be a great person to learn from. One very interesting playing technique emerged during unpublished Franck work, and the professor told us to look for it. Seems the invention of the French Ventil pedal system coincided with the time Franck wrote this piece, so was one of the first specifically written to take advantage of the system. The Finney Chapel Fisk is a dual mode instrument, capable of being played with a modern electronic combination system, or at the flick of a switch, be put into the French Mode, with the ventils coming in to play. What a unique experience to watch the organist play a rhythmic combination change on the ventil pedal while holding a chord on the manuals. As you can tell, I had a terrific time at this recital. In addition to enjoying Professor Christie's performance, I had the chance to renew some acquaintances among the organ students I had met through the Friday Night Organ Pump performances, and I also was tickled to finally meet fellow list member, Owen Cannon, who is a freshman this year studying under Professor Christie. Owen seems to be doing quite well, has his own campus radio program, and seems to be taking Oberlin by storm. He is a feisty youngster, and I'm sure we all join in wishing him well. So, there you have it. All Winter long the weather has been trying to keep me away from my beloved concert crawling, but so far I have won every bought. It's worth a little slipping and sliding in my automobile to attend performances like I did at Oberlin today. I'm glad I didn't miss it.   Cheers Mike

Scholarly performance and interpretations that are full of warmth and expression should go hand in hand. They are not in opposition to each other. But yes, there can be playing in any style that is insensitive and unmusical. That is not the fault of scholarship but of musicianship! ! ! ! ! ! !     Del W. Case Pacific Union College

I have plenty of mono LPs that still sound just fine, thank you. Something else = must be the cause, e.g., the record is worn from many plays, it had been played with a worn stylus, = if played by a stereo pickup the stylus may be riding the bottom of the groove, etc., etc.   Stan Yoder Pittsburgh

F.) Walcker, now unfortunately no longer in business.   You will find a picture of one of several Two Pedalboard instruments built by Walcker in The Organists' Book of Days, opposite the day for the week = of July 16th. Looks like fun.   Cheers,   Malcolm Wechsler   ----- Original Message ----- From: "jon bertschinger" <jonberts@magiccablepc.com> To: "PipeChat" <pipechat@pipechat.org> Sent: Monday, February 24, 2003 2:13 PM Subject: Re: 6 manual organs     > I seem to remember an older Walker that had 2 pedalboards as > well?
