(back) Subject: Re: Wicks and Willis From: "Brent Johnson" <brentmj@swbell.net> Date: Thu, 29 May 2003 17:33:10 -0500   Henry Willis was the tonal director of the Wicks Organ Company from 1936 to 1942. He came to Wicks from Kilgen in St. Louis. Simon Nieminski collected a handful of information on the topic for his recording of the Organ Symphonies of Edward Shippen Barnes. You can read this on his website at http://www.nieminski.com. Under the menu heading Performing & CD's, pull down to Recordings. On his Recordings page, click on the second blue link labeled Edward Shippen Barnes. You'll find a copy of the liner notes. Scroll down a little to find the information about Willis.   After reading, then buy the CD. It's excellent!

The pastor seemed pretty knowledgeable about such things: liturgy, architecture, music. I think, in fact, he was, for those days. 2/18, eh? What they bought, c. 1948, was 2/4 ULTRA unified Moller. We thought it was the greatest instrument on earth! I guess you can believe it, but I can't. Unbelievable how stupid we were. (But like THOUSANDS of other congregations, right?)   The room seats 700; I think it should have 25+ ranks, assuming it can find = a very good organist (back on topic) to use it.   Thank you, Sand.   Alan

(back) Subject: Malcolm and Mormons From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@direcway.com> Date: Thu, 29 May 2003 20:18:51 -0500   Firstly, I'd like to congratulate Malcolm Wechsler on his being nominated for election to the OHS board. I got home last Friday evening to a truckload of mail, including an OHS ballot. Imagine my delighted surprise that Malcolm was listed thereon. My sincere good wishes regarding the election.   Secondly, I hope this finds all on the list well.   Thirdly, I must tell you that the 12-day vacation was great, except that the altitude was hell on Rick. We saw Williams, South Rim, Sedona, Flagstaff, Petrified Forest, Page, Lake Powell, Marble Canyon, Glen Canyon, North Rim, Pink Coral Sand Dunes, Zion and Bryce National Parks, bits of the Escalante Grand Staircase and Canyonlands, and Salt Lake City. Because Rick is not an organ fiend like myself, I did not make any arrangements to examine, hear or see organs. However, when we checked in across the street from Temple Square, I felt a strange excitement about being in such close proximity to a number of instruments. I all but dragged him across the street to see the Tabernacle that evening.   The next day we took a tour of the city that was supposed to take in the noon organ recital. However, it only allowed us to hear the first selection, Matthias' "Processional". I was miffed at not hearing the rest of Elliott's recital, particularly when the closing piece was "Ride of the Valkyries". However, I got to see the Assembly Hall organ (I didn't ask to get into the basement to see the three organs down there), and took a view of the Conference Center organ being tuned.   I wheedled Rick into attending the Mormon Tabernacle Choir rehearsal Thursday night. I speculated that only a few groups here and there would come in and out, but the building stayed about 3/4 full the entire time. Reluctant Rick began enjoying the rehearsal, and I didn't think I would get him out of there.   I am now really looking forward to getting the mounds of work off my desk and getting back to Salt Lake for the Regions 8 and 9 AGO Convention. I tried to become a Mormon, but they threw me out. We couldn't come to a final agreement - they promised clear sinuses, low allergies, and 90% good hair days, but wouldn't promise a missionary tour to SLC and free organ practice on the organs. They didn't seem interested in baptizing any of my relatives or ancestors - can't imagine why.   With tongue lolling around in the left check (beats chewing tobacco), I remain,   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com

I seem to remember reading somewhere that he left England and came here since he wasn't the first-born son and therefore wouldn't have much impact on the operations of the Willis Firm so he struck out on his own over here.   David

Go to someone whose instruments you = have heard and played and admired. Also, whose reeds stay in tune, co,me what may, whose mechanisms operate withgout problem year in, year out. And if possible, take a look inside. Look at the thickness and finish of the = wood and of the pipes. Are you dealing with someone who provides quality? = This takes a lot of hard work and research, but you ought to enjoy doing the research and you will certainly benefit from the experience.   John Speller
