Donald Harrison = and=0D E.M. Skinner during the early 1930's that I don't know if anyone ever=0D thought about, or necessarily even cared about the fate of the former =C6= olian=0D factory facility in Garwood, NJ once Marks completed the merger. We do h= ear=0D about how some =C6-S organs continued to be produced by the former =C6oli= an=0D plant for a time.=0D =0D Later in the time-line, some list members have made mention of how one of= =0D the then-new Boston freeways basically condemned the Erecting Room of the= =0D merged =C6olian-Skinner plant in the late 1960's, thus forcing their remo= val=0D to suburban Randolph, MA and the ensuing financial collapse of the compan= y=0D due to servicing the much heavier debt load during the early 1970's. Howe= ver=0D I don't ever remember anyone ever making mention anywhere of whatever=0D happened to the former =C6olian New Jersey plant.=0D =0D Lo and behold: on the MMD photo webpage is a page dedicated to this Garwo= od,=0D NJ facility, and I thought I'd pass along the URL for those who may be=0D interested in a bit of nostalgia.=0D =0D The following URL shows photos of the facility, should anyone be interest= ed=0D in knowing what the former =C6olian plant looks like today:=0D =0D http://mmd.foxtail.com/Pictures/AeolianGarwood.html=0D =0D I hope that someone will find this information of historical benefit and=0D usefulness.=0D =0D Sincerely,=0D =0D Richard Schneider

I said it was Rev. J. Elliott P =   Morrison who was the arsonist, but it was his predecessor. Hugh Bean Evans = was the very fine minister during Wayne Fisher's great days there, but it was = Evans' successor who had a thing with matches.   I stand corrected and am apologetic to the name of Rev. Morrison.   Have a great day!   Darryl by the Sea Nashville, TN

I may have a copy of the = original MS of that piece as well in our library at St. John's.   Pax, Bill H. St. John's, Bowdoin St., Boston.  
(back) Subject: Re: Everett Titcomb Music From: <DERREINETOR@aol.com> Date: Wed, 11 Aug 2004 11:31:41 EDT   Bud,   Thank you for pointing out that we at St. John's are starting to take a = good look at our library! A parishioner has generously offered to underwrite financially the costly portions of this project. As this develops, the = list will be kept in the loop. There is quite a bit of really good music there that deserves to again see the light of day.   Pax, Bill H. St. John's, Bowdoin St.  
(back) Subject: Aug 15th Music? From: <DERREINETOR@aol.com> Date: Wed, 11 Aug 2004 11:54:25 EDT   Dear List,   In the spirit of the recent "What are you playing this Sunday" posts, what = do folks have in mind for the Feast of the Assumption/Feast of St. Mary the Virgin?   Here's my choice for Prelude/Postlude at St. John the Evangelist in Boston =   (which also speaks to the Everett Titcomb thread):   Prelude: "Benedicta Tu" (Improvisation on Ave Regina caelorum, Ave Maris Stella et Ave Maria; plainchant-based). Postlude: "Allegro Marziale" (based on Old 100th--a cheesy late piece (ca. =   1962), but dedicated to St. John's Organist and Choirmaster Emerita, Sally = Slade Warner, who has graciously lodged copies of these out-of-print works in = our music department). Titcomb's registrations (via Sally Warner with some = tweaking by yours truly will be used).   Both by Titcomb.   Ave Maria! Bill H. St. John's, Bowdoin St.  
(back) Subject: More Scottish Music From: <Georgewbayley@aol.com> Date: Wed, 11 Aug 2004 14:39:49 EDT   11 August 2004   Dear List:   In 1996, Kevin Mayhew published a book of organ music entitled "Music of = the Islands" and subtitled "25 Improvisations on Traditional Folk Melodies for =   Organ". Almost all of the pieces are based on Scottish melodies along with = a few Irish tunes.   The best one of all is the piece by Malcolm Archer entitled "Greensleeves" =   and subtitled "Bluesleeves". It is in a wonderful slow blues style and it = will enchant most any organ recital audience that has a sense of humor.   Enjoy!   George

Felix played a very demanding program very well indeed, especially given his age. 2. It was the enthsiasm of the audience which demanded an encore; 3. The third movement of the first trio sonata was fast but not excessively so. The problem came when he needed to turn the page, his father had gone downstairs and Felix fumbled the page turn, lost his place briefly, but recovered. Turning one's own page in a fast movement of a trio sonata is inviting disaster. How many of us had his dedication, competence and humility at 19?   --- PipeChat <pipechat@pipechat.org> wrote:   > PipeChat Digest #4691 - Wednesday, August 11, 2004 > > Everett Titcomb Music > by "Chip Bowden" > <chip_bowden@emoryhealthcare.org> > Re: Hammond in Sao Paulo > by "Adrianne Schutt" <maybe@pipcom.com> > Re: Hell review > by "Hans-Friedrich Hell" > <Hell-Concerts@t-online.de> > Re: Everett Titcomb Music > by "Noel Stoutenburg" <mjolnir@ticnet.com> > RE: Music and the plastic arts > by "TheShieling" <TheShieling@xtra.co.nz> > Re: Everett Titcomb Music > by "Liquescent" <quilisma@cox.net> > Re: The Cruel Toppling of Pedestals (VERY > SERIOUS)(x-post) > by <OrganMD@aol.com> > Fwd: Felix Hell at OHS (long) > by "Administrator" <admin@pipechat.org> > Fwd: Re: OHS > by "Administrator" <admin@pipechat.org> > Re: OHS Buffalo - Second (Very) Full Day, 7-16-04 > by "Karl Moyer" > <kmoyer@marauder.millersville.edu> > > >
