From: "Colin Mitchell" <cmys13085@yahoo.co.uk> Date: Wed, 1 Dec 2004 19:01:04 -0800 (PST)   Hello,   This is all getting rather silly!   We have Sebastian hurling out general insults at "organists" in general, and Noel Jones specifically hurling sods of earth back.   In the meantime, I prick the bubbles and enjoy watching them vapourise.   Sebastian may THINK that organists are foolish not to specify pipe-organs, no matter how limited the instrument may be, but I once lived with a three stop organ which was so boring that I hated playing it. An electronic for the same money would not have been a masterpiece, but it would have been close enough to make some real music.   Sebastian is not alone in being worried about the spread of electronic instruments at the expense of traditional pipe organ manufacture, but that has nothing to do with organists as such....they are mere musicians. Rather, it has to do with the fantastic progress made in electronic simulation.   To quote a phrase, "the bottom line" has to be music....not rows of pipes or digital this or digital that....music.   We appear to have reached a cross-over point, where the best digital synthesis is now possibly on a par with many "average" pipe organs, and they are quite capable of delivering a musical experience; yet it remains a very young technology with great potential for the future.   Personally, I don't love the organ because it is visually beautiful, or historic, or nostaligic, or unquestionably and automatically better. I love the SOUND of the organ and what it can convey musically, and anything else is a bonus. If I can go to Holland each year and SEE beauty, as well as HEAR it, and at the same time immerse myself in the history, then the experience is not restricted purely to music, but also takes in the visual arts.   This is the paradoxical nature of the current state of development.....we have many, many pipe organs, some of which are fine, and others which are less so. We have new digital systems and new digital organ manufacturers coming on stream, who CONSISTENTLY now produce worthy rather than seminal instruments, AND WE CAN MAKE REAL MUSIC WITH THEM!!   Unfortunately, we all live in a free market economy these days, and competition is encouraged. IF the electronic organ is now COMPETING for the first time in its history, then I can see no viable reason why organists should WANT to dismiss them as somehow second-best.   I'm afraid to say, that no amount of wishful thinking is going to guarantee organ-builders a living in the future, and adopting a "guru" fortress mentality may, in the end, be self-destructive.   Of one thing I am certain, having spent a lifetime working in commerce, no sane businessman sets out to insult his potential clients.   Finally, does anyone really CARE what an organ builder knows about musicology? Is it really relevant?   I don't recall many (any?) great organ builders who were great musicians or scholars!

However, it says a great deal that a fair number of new instruments have been supplied by companies based in Germany, Austria, Ireland, the Netherlands and Denmark.   That, I'm afraid, is the price of a thriving secular culture.   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK --- noel jones <gedeckt@usit.net> wrote:   > Writing of. writing of. > > noel jones wrote: > > > Actually, Colin, I was writing builders....on > your side of the > > "pond"...I intended to be vague...obviously a bit > too vague.       __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!?

None are superstars ... they build organs for a living ... I doubt they have much time to practice <g>.   I think it's rather unfair to tar ALL organ-builders with the same brush.

(back) Subject: Re: organs on the coast From: "F. Richard Burt" <effarbee@verizon.net> Date: Wed, 1 Dec 2004 22:53:21 -0600   Hello, Bud:   I sold a fine three-manual 41-stop Saville in 1967 (Series-II technology) to a church on the Gulf Coast. The primary industry in that town was refining petroleum, and making a zillion other chemical products.   The atmosphere was so caustic that I could clean the mess off the contacts so everything worked well. In two to four weeks, I had to repeat the process again, and invested a zillion $$$ in service to make it as good as it could be. I kept that organ propped up until I took a job in west Texas 10 years later and had to stop servicing it. The warranty was done, and I had to abandon it. The church hired other service techs, but they finally dumped the organ.   Salt air is bad. Chemically laden salt air is terrible. Wood products will suddenly dry out and warp, bow, and distort, then swell again when the salt air returns.   I have often thought that organs were invented for climates other than the seashore, . . . .seashores flourishing with chemical plants.   F.
