The Hook in Troy is one of the most stunning small instruments I've heard- it was on = an OHS mini-convention several years ago, and I've been back a few times. = This is an instrument that plays much larger than it looks on paper- the Franck a-minor chorale on it sounded like 40 ranks, at least! Everything works together- the swell box is raised a bit, so it speaks over the great instead of behind it. Any church that ended up with this one would be = doing itself a great favor.   Paul   http://www.sover.net/~popel/agomain.html      
(back) Subject: The Washington Post Article on Organists declining From: "T.Desiree' Hines" <nicemusica@yahoo.com> Date: Sun, 1 Aug 2004 07:14:46 -0700 (PDT)   I read the post from Matt Rhodes of the WNP article. They surved organists in full time positions in larger churches and major = programs. Im wondering if the people who do these articles would talk to = those who are on serach committees and the pastors and ask them what the = search process is like. One major turn off for me is this: Churches just = get too picky and too much of a "concert" fare. I see so many jobs where = there is way more emphasis on what anthems the choir sings on a Sunday and = what movement of which Vierne Symphone is going to be the pre or postlude. = Seldom do I see any discriptions that say a candidate who is well versed = in hymnody and strong hymn playing, in addition to strong choir traing, is = the optimum candidate. It is hard to find a church where the central focus = is the People's song in a sturdy, jubilant manner. That's why Im at my = church...the peoples song is what they want cultivated. In some ways, do you feel that the church itself is driving away the = desire for those to be church musicians?     From Desiree' T.

I wonder if its possible to "lower" the swell down a bit without ruining the action. I have a huge rose window that won't like to be covered all the way.

I have never liked the Burgess refrains ... they're so low and growly (though they work FINE if you transpose them UP a third and sing the chant verses to "Urbs beata Jerusalem").   Anyway ... if anybody wants it, let me know.   Cheers,   Bud

(back) Subject: Organ Visitation From: "Keith Zimmerman" <kwzimmerman@alltel.net> Date: Sun, 1 Aug 2004 19:33:42 -0400   Pipechatters,   I sent this message two days ago, but I haven't seen it in the digest. I you already received this, I apologize. I guess to keep this on topic, I should tell y'all that we went to Destin, Florida to take our first family vacation in three years. Glenda lives close by, so we plan to visit a couple organs while we're here.   Anyway, we got our Windstar packed and the 5 of us plus a friend set out around 10 a.m. EST. Everything was going well until about 3 hours later = and 20 miles E of Montgomery, Alabama when I noticed my "O/D OFF" light start blinking. I figured that I would head on into Montgomery and check the transmission fluid level. A few miles later, I noticed that some cars behind us appeared a little fuzzy. The back window was too dirty to tell, but I kept thinking I was seeing smoke in my side mirrors. I decided to pull over, and, sho nuff, I was smoking and oil was pouring from under the engine. A mechanic stopped for a moment and said we wouldn't have made it to Montgomery. My wife reminded me that we had purchased an extended warrantee (good for another year and about 20Kmore miles). A deputy = called a wrecker, so we waited about an hour on the side of the interstate before we could get towed about 15 miles to the nearest Ford dealership. Apparently, the front seal of the transmission blew, and that's not a one day job. Fortunately, they fixed us up with another Windstar that would = be provided by our warrantee. After gettting all the junk unpacked and repacked, we set out again - finally getting a late lunch around 3 p.m.   Now, we're about another 1 1/2 hours down the road and I feel the "new" = van make a funny movement that made me feel quite unsteady on the road. I notice a funny sound and worried that a gust of wind had shifted the = cartop carrier and we were about the lose the luggage. I pulled off to check it out, and somebody rolled down a window and told me that I had a flat tire. While ants nibbled at my ankles, I started changing the tire. Then I couldn't figure out how to get that stupid little spare out from under the van. It wasn't like my other one. Fortunately the dealership could be reached by phone, and he told me where to find the right nut to turn = (there was no manual). Anyway, we got the spare on - which was extremely low on air - and set out again.   I noticed a beautiful full moon. Anyway, it took us about 12 1/2 hours to make the 7 hour drive. I hope this isn't an omen of how the week at the beech is going to be.   We plan to meet Glenda and her husband at a church Sunday before visiting two pipe organs in the vicinity on which she has played.   Sincerely, Keith

I don't think I've had a dozen list e-mails in the last 3-4 days, although the spam is coming through at the normal pace.   Just wondering - didn't anyone play something exciting at church today?   Enjoyed the visit, Keith.   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com

Hey, it's Dog Days. Communion Sunday at our UCC, so I played Charles Callahan's "Let Us Break Bread" as a prelude (one of his best settings, I think, but a bit awkward without 3rd manual), a Tournemire orgu= e mystique Communion (#31) as offertory, and Alec Rowley Gaudeamus for postlude. (All chosen in part to be as different as possible from last week= , which was Harold Darke Retrospection, a Padre Martini Gavotte, and Bach c minor Fugue (from the BWV 537 Fantasia & Fugue, and easier as well.)   If I iron all the kinks out, next week will be the Virgil Fox/Hebble arrangement of Sheep May Safely Graze, Vierne Pr=E9ambule from 24 Pi=E8ces,= and Handel Arrival of the Queen of Sheba. Maybe.   MAF   Ha
