In Automatic mechanical musical instruments = it was found that the exhaust system is more responsive. In the pressure = system you have the actual pressure provided by the pumps or bellows, what, maybe up to 10 or 20 inches of water. In the exhaust, or negative pressure = system, you have the weight of the atmosphere working for you! In my Aeolian Orchestrelle player reed organ using pressure for the single valve/pouch, it is not nearly as responsive as what you could get from a suction system, such as in a player piano.

(back) Subject: RE: My Trip to Bruges From: "Lefevre Vincent" <vincent.lefevre@tiscali.be> Date: Thu, 11 Sep 2003 20:22:41 +0200   Hi Ron,   I don't know exactly which one of the two churches in Bruges (Church of = our Lady or the San Salvadors Cathedral) is the biggest, but I do know that = the tower of the Our lady Church still is the highest brick construction (no concrete) in Europe. The cathedral may have a bigger nave, but the tower = is not so high as the Our Ladie's one. With regard to the Our lady Church, I have a close feeling to it, because I worked there during excavation activities in the choir to find the mortal remains of Mary of Bourgondia (1472) and we found it! During this historical works in the vault, we = heart the organist playing "In Paradisum" during an ongoing funeral and smelt = the incense. This is nearly 30 years ago but I still remember it .   Vincent         _____   From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org] On Behalf Of RonSeverin@aol.com Sent: donderdag 11 september 2003 9:09 To: pipechat@pipechat.org     Hi Vincent:     What was the name of the biggest church in Bruges? I was only there   a few hours on tour, but I saw a gigantic church and bell tower. Someone   said it was dedicated to Mary. That's obviously not the one you describe,   can you help me fill in the blank. The organist of Bordeaux Cathedral   was there at San Salvadores to play an evening concert which I had   to miss. He was setting pistons and a docent told me I could go up   stairs and meet him. I did, both he and his wife who spoke some   English, and we got on well. He invited me to play for him. I had no   music so I improvised. He was impressed that Americans could indeed   improvise and asked me if I had studied in France. I had to demure and   say no, but I do listen to a lot of French music. I just embellished a   short Gregorian Theme building until I was at full organ. Both were very   gracious and soon left for their lunch. I was very exceited with the activity   and love for the pipe organ that Europeans obviously have.     Bruges is a very charming city, that I would love to visit again. The   people are very friendly and outgoing. The food was wonderful and   the Bruges tipple a delight.     On the trip onto the continent I noticed that the archtecture in Normandy   was decidedly English up to about 100 miles in. Then I realized that   England occupied this land during the lifetime of St. Joan of Arc. It's   fascinating when these revelations hit home. The churches especially   looked more like Norman English. As we got farther along they took on   a decidedly more gothic form, built taller, and much more pitch to the   roof. I also detected some German influence too.     Ron Severin

In fact, when I worked = in a telegraph office in Seattle, 1950, we had those pneumatic tubes that ran several MILES to the main office (containing hard copy telegrams to be keyboarded and sent across the country--or even to Perth).   Alan

(back) Subject: Re: Exploding pneumatics From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Fri, 12 Sep 2003 01:21:52 EDT   Hi Alan:   Before the pneumatic tubes were in use, remember in the distant past that little trolleys shuttled back and forth from the sales desks to the cashiers cage. The sales person had to give the handle a real good yank and the spring loaded trolley went shooting up to the cashier. It soon returned with a receipt and the customer's change. The sales person always wrote on little pads with carbon paper slipped inbetween to make copies.   Ron
