(back) Subject: Who killed the Organ? Some facts... (xpost) From: "Kealypaul" <kealypaul@yahoo.com> Date: Thu, 8 May 2003 10:32:40 -0700 (PDT)   Awhile back we were talking about a real hero of mine, Lorin Whitney and his Robert Morton that was the center of many radio broadcasts and film sountracks in his state of the art recording studio in Glendale. CA. Disney, Marni Nixon, Barry White's Love Unlimited Orchestra and many professional studio gigs were recorded there continuously in that studio, as well as Gospel broadcasting and music albums.   It was more than just an organ in a studio. The studio was fully professional itself, and when it was purchased by another studio the organ was removed.   It was my privilege to record there, and to get to know him as recording studio owner as well as organist for this great instrument that was acoustically tuned to the recording environment.   Later, when I built my own studio, I often recorded my LP masters and did some studio trax there on his equipment.   Well, awhile back on this list I asked about that organ, which I know Paul Mickelson bought when the studio closed.   Whenever I talked with Paul we always said I would eventually buy that organ (he had it in storage, as well as the old NBC Pipe Organ from Sunset and Vine), but I delayed, and then I heard of Paul's death recently. I had wanted that instrument for what it represented in Lorin's music, and the generation it served in Gospel music, as much as anything else.   Today folks seek contemporary music in worship. Well, Lorin had done that for relating music of the church to a previous generation, and was criticized by some for theatre sounds of the Gospel, as today's musicians are criticized for contemporary motif. (But it worked better for him).   But I had waited too long.   Last week Lorin phoned me, and we had a great chat, recounting some precious yesterdays, and he mentioned that the Robert Morton organ has been chopped up and pieced all over the country. I am still in grief.   Lorin, at 88, still plays organ gigs and keeps busy blessing others with his talent.   I am preparing a publication about his music, so am collecting any information I can gather. It would be nice to have his organ.   But with the joy we shared on the phone last week, it was really hard for me to accept the fact that nothing remains of that great instrument. Maybe I'll find a piece of it someday for my museum, but I am actually, and surprisingly for its depth, heartsick about the loss of that instrument.   When a student at U of Redlands, there was an old Robert Morton in the basement of the music department I used to play, reminding me of those thrilling tibias and trems of Lorins. Last time I visited the campus it was gone, that room was a storage library of music cabinets.   So, people, if you have the opportunity to preserve, just three words, as I actually mourn the loss of this instrument and the person it represented ... DO IT NOW. Tomorrow may be too late.   I'd sell my home to get that instrument of Lorin's but it's gone forever.   ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Paul E.

From: "Mark & Cinda Towne" <mstowne@concentric.net> Date: Thu, 8 May 2003 12:13:10 -0700   Hi list members,   Just curious...what is the status of what remains of the San Lorenzo Pizza Joynt Wurlitzer. I recall a post saying that the 13 ranks in the chamber were spared, but that the console suffered significant damage and that = some of the externally installed traps and effects were lost. What about the = 16' Solo Tibia along the south wall?   The Hayward Daily Review stated that the current owner hopes to re-open in about three months. Is that without the organ?   The instrument was my introduction the pipe organ back in 1963! Many memories from my childhood.   Mark S.

(back) Subject: Chautauqua's Massey Organ From: "Mark Fischer" <fischerm@adelphia.net> Date: Thu, 8 May 2003 15:28:31 -0400   List: For those interested, the Massey Memorial Organ at Chautauqua Institution = is open for tours FREE OF CHARGE on every other Sunday at 5:00 PM. The first tour being July 6. The tour is conducted by myself (usually) and lasts about an hour. Unfortunately, there is no open bench but a brief performance is given. On the alternating Sundays, Jared Jacobson, staff organist, gives lectures that are more geared toward children. I don't believe they go into the organ.   On the tours, most all aspects of the organ are discussed - the history, = the environment, layout, etc. You go into the organ as a group and are able = to walk among the reservoirs and throughout the bottom section of the organ. Normally, one cannot walk among the pipes (too dangerous) but, if anybody introduces themselves as a PipeChat member, I will take you in.   This season is the tenth anniversary of the reconstruction of the instrument. To the best of my knowledge, there is nothing special planned to comemorate this. However, this year will mark a notable addition to = the organ - an addition that helped to persuade the Mormon Tabernacle Choir to use the instrument.   I hope to tell you more as you ask.   Mark Fischer

I read it a couple of times to try to make it funny, and failed miserably. I don't and never have performed the Abendfriede, or much of anything else these days. Were you punching me in the ribs, pulling my leg, or slapping my face? Have I offended in times past? If so, I am truly sorry, particularly if it deserved such a low, mean comment from you.   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com (leaving for the wild West early Monday morning, and playing my first service in a year in June before heading to Mormonville a second time)     -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org] On Behalf Of Malcolm Wechsler Sent: Wednesday, May 07, 2003 10:56 PM To: Pipe Chat; Pipe Organ List Subject: Felix Hell in Bloomsburg, PA   inter alia:   The Rheinberger <Abendfriede>, evening peace, was so lovely that it probably surpassed even those performances of our own Glenda, reports to the contrary notwithstanding. It ended with three chimes, surely much appreciated by members of the church, and Rheinberger would have been pleased as well.
