And I think it neat that you ended the service with "Jesus Christ is risen today" - most churches start with that.     What did you do after services?     What is the latest on your apartment? I've been thinking about you.     Glenda Sutton   gksjd85@direcway.com

(back) Subject: Wanted 3 manual console in good shape. From: "Nelson Denton" <ndenton@cogeco.ca> Date: Wed, 14 Apr 2004 01:57:34 -0400   Hi guys. I'm writting once again for a "used" 3 manual organ console in good condition.One of my many prospects has finally panned out after a 10 year = wait and they are now wanting to go ahead with a replacement console for theirs = which has seen many better days. Of course they want it ASAP!.   I'm looking for a mid sized 3 manual console or a 4 manual of small size = with about 50+ drawknobs and about 23 couplers or so. Prefferably with working elecrtric drawknobs. The console will be stripped and cleaned and will = have all new switching and action installed by us.. All I really need is a set of = good keyboards/pedalboard, a shell and electric drawknobs.   A good later Moller or Casavant etc. in good shape would also be = considered. If anyone has a fully operational console that is in good shape let me = know as well.   I'd really preffer to build them a complete new console myself but they = don't have the funds for a completely new console and want to go with a rebuilt = one if it's cheaper.   I know a number of you wrote me in the past about consoles for sale. If = you still have them can you let me know?   Nelson Denton R.A. Denton & Son Pipe Organ Builders Hamilton Ont.   Succesors to Spencer Bros. Owen Sound Ont & Hamilton Ont. 1861-1910
