(back) Subject: Organs on e-bay From: "Colin Mitchell" <cmys13085@yahoo.co.uk> Date: Wed, 14 May 2003 13:16:31 +0100 (BST)   Hello,   There are TWO pipe organs currently being offered on e-bay; both of some interest.   The first is a neat, small Bevington of some considerable antique value which has but a few hours to run and is currently not over-priced. E-bay Item 2528814088.   However, the "custodian" of this gem states that it was his intention "to convert it to a player organ" but could not find the time!! Small mercies indeed.   Get in there and grab yourself a genuine organ antique!   The second item on e-bay is completely bizzare.   It consists of a "pipe" organ certainly, "made from everday materials" such as chip-board, with plastic pipes!! The pipes have lead mouths, presumably bonded to the plastic, and the whole retinue is in atractive bright white. It is worth looking at.....a very strange thing indeed.   Meanwhile, I was outbid on an Allen organ, so I'm not the happiest bunny at the moment.   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK   __________________________________________________ Yahoo!

Suggestions From: "John Seboldt" <rohrwerk@seboldt.net> Date: Wed, 14 May 2003 13:02:47 -0500     I'll focus on some not-too-hard but *useful* and flashy-sounding repertoire, most of which I've already learned and can pull out of the = hat, some of which I'm working on now but being over 50 and holding 2 jobs I have less time to really learn well :-) -- the point being, get it under your belt now and it will remain with you forever with just a little dusting off --   Widor Symphony II - Pastorale (lovely, for a nice hautbois) Finale - a not too hard toccata, and short enough for postlude in most circumstances!   Saint-Saens - 3 Preludes and Fugues - I know the first in D minor (nice = and somber), and the second in G Major, perky and scherzo-like.   Saint-Saens - 7 Improvisations - especially no. 7, Allegro giocoso   Howells, Master Tallis's Testament   Durufle - Prelude, Adagio, and Choral varie on Veni Creator (exact title not in my head) - 1st 2 movements take some real work, but the variations are not too hard and very useful for "Spirit" days (in fact, according to the recent TAO articles the Variations were written much earlier).   More later...   Cheers,   John Seboldt Music Director rohrwerk@seboldt.net Trinity Lutheran Church www.seboldt.net South Milwaukee, WI

If you are planning to = come to the convention, save the $20 and register by Monday, May 26 (postmark that date is OK).   The convention begins on Thursday evening, June 19, and continues through Thursday evening, June 26. One may register for the entire convention or = for individual days if one cannot attend the entire convention.   The hotel is also filling, so it would be wise to make reservations right away at 717-234-5021, directly with the convention hotel. It is best to = call 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.   A thumbnail list of convention organ concerts (32 of them will happen with as many organs and organists) and a few lectures appears in the = registration form, with further information in the latest issue of The Tracker. Registration forms have been mailed to OHS members twice, most recently = this week. Even if you're not an OHS member, you can register for the = convention (and become a member at the same time). A thumbnail list of concerts and the registration form is online and downloadable from http://www.organsociety.org Also, one can register online. Click on "Conventions" at the left, then on "Pennsylvania." Or, we can FAX one to you if you call us at 804-353-9226.

But there won't be muc= h more of this, as I'm soon to slink back into recital retirement from whence I escaped as of the end of April.   At any rate, I'll play the following at First United Church of Christ, Reading PA, a large, quite fine three-manuel done by Lehigh Organ Co. of Allentown: =20   Bonnet Romance sans Paroles Variations de Concert Elgar Nimrod Bach/Reger Two-Part Inventions with a third voice added by Max Reger No. 3 in D No. 14 in B Flat Paul Manz Wie sch=F6n leuchtet der Morgenstern Max Reger (ditto)   intermission - offering   Guilmant Sonata V in C minor Sousa The Stars and Stripes Forever   Since Sousa conducted this march at the close of the Ringgold Band of Reading rehearsal thte nighty of 14 May 1897 and then died in the Lincoln Hotel in Reading later that night with that as the last music he ever conducted, this is perhaps a bit of an auspicious thing to do! I hope the= y don't run me out of town. The baton Sousa used is in the museum of the Ne= w Holland Band here in Lancaster County.   If I have it right, Sousa's grave is in the unkempt Congressional Cemetery in Washington, D.C. -- a travesty if ever there was one.

He had been a football halfback in high school days.   __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? The New Yahoo! Search - Faster. Easier. Bingo. http://search.yahoo.com
