There was not a scar.   Yes, I was a gullible child.   To make this on-topic, once several years back on the list we discussed different types of glue used in organ-building, and using gin to clean contacts.   Wondering if dead possum hide would make a suitable glue,   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com

He plays both the classical and theatrical = consoles. Also on the CD are two tracks of the player organ rolls being played. Awesome! This is a must have CD.   Stan Krider     In a message dated 12/14/2004 3:52:11 PM Eastern Standard Time, harrym@epix.net writes:   Paul Marchesano (OHS councilor) reported on orgue-l:   "On the concert hall organ topic, I sadly report that the 1930 M.P. Moeller organ of c. 90 ranks, built for the Philadelphia, PA Civic Center (USA) is in the process of being removed to storage for an indefinite time and has no relocation target as of yet.   There exist some recordings of the organ being played by various theatre and classical organists and the rolls were apparently also recorded in the 1990s.  
(back) Subject: RE: Blenheim Palace (Willis) From: "TheShieling" <TheShieling@xtra.co.nz> Date: Wed, 15 Dec 2004 15:19:04 +1300     >This comes as a surprise to me--I've always thought that Willis really rated amongst 19th-century English builders. I've never played one nor heard one in person, though. Care to elaborate as to why? Enlighten me...   Not being an Englishman, but living some 13000 miles away, I'll still have the courage to jump in from my (not extensive) knowledge of Willis organs. =     One of the main problems is that they were not really designed either for accompanying singing or for playing the great literature of the organ. The Great diapason chorus was often a large soggy mess, with no singing = quality or clarity to it. Further, any upperwork was very limited and inevitably = had a 17th in it. Too, the further up you went, the more the stuff became stringy in tone. Adding the Great reeds merely obliterated the diapason chorus. With that, you HAD to have reeds on for anything like full organ, that is unless you wanted to make the organ sound like a large "English" full Swell of 16ft reed and other stuff. And again, the Choir tended to be = a tiddly collection of flutes, a dabble of stringy stops, and some solo = reeds - useless as a Chair, or Positive, and there was no upperwork there beyond some flutey mutations at Nazard, Piccolo and Tierce pitches. The Pedal was loaded with 16fts, but everything else was extension or borrow, there was = no clarity and virtually no upperwork of any sort - maybe sometimes an extn = 4ft Principal or a mutation, but only rarely. And again, the pressures were often so high that the organ sounded blatant and obscene in the building, i.e. too damned loud, and literally painful on the ears. And again, you = got a Willis organ, always, with apparently no effort on the part of the = builder to relate either the specification or the purpose of the instrument to the building.   When Willis got hold of the Southwark Cathedral Lewis masterpiece, he = upped the pressures all over the place and made the organ awful. At their very fine restoration, H&H put everything back the way it had been, and the = organ became a truly wonderful instrument again. At Westminster Cathedral, the Apse organ is certainly Lewis-inspired and voiced, but I'm not fond of the noisy behemoth at the west end: oh yeah, sort-of impressive in large-scale 19thC French works, but not what I'd call a useful organ. My organ = teacher, Maxwell Fernie, Organist there when George Malcolm was Dir.Music, told me how he often got so very frustrated with the organ. Max finally ditched = the place to come back to NZ, sick of the whole Willis scene.   I've often played the handful of Willis organs in NZ, but apart from their size, I'm not at all impressed with the voicing, the scaling, the balance, the design, any of that. Dunedin Cathedral had a 3/46 Willis from 1919, so that probably had Lewis voicers working on it. Certainly, it was a big = sound and a Willis design, but much more of a Lewis tone. It's since been = rebuilt and enlarged to a 4m by the South Island Organ Co., with all sorts of upperwork added, but to me the organ is just "a large organ" now and = hasn't the quality of tone it had. As it was when built, it was probably amongst the very last handful of organs to have had Lewis tone in the Great Diapasons. Colin Mitchell will relate the story of the Willis takeover better than me.   I played a 3m Willis organ in Cambridge a few years ago. I couldn't = believe the strident and obscene BLATT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! of the organ in that = smallish church. 10 days later I played the similar-sized Lewis in Kelvingrove, Glasgow - and was entranced at the feeling of rightness and musicality = that were there. I played a 2m Willis in a City of London church - and recoiled at the nastiness of the voicing and, again, the lack of balance and subtlety. Not two weeks later, I played a Snetzler enlarged by Norman & Beard - and was delighted at the sheer loveliness of the sound.   I suppose people have been taken in a bit by the noise and bombast of Willis, and the "effect" of choruses of reeds coupled, but they're little use for accompanying singing or playing almost any of the organ's own = music - and the sound becomes wearisome even to an organ enthusiast like me.   And none of this is to talk about mechanism, reliability, any of those things, as they're a different issue.   Ross

Perfect for the do-it- yourselfer!"   We commonly use "Dermabond" in the ER to put nongaping lacerations back together. It forms a protective film over the cut. It's great for the little kids. I always hate it when I get this 3 year old in my office to have his sutures removed. Invariably, the ER physician has put in about a dozen very tiny sutures in this little kid's face. They were supposed to = be taken out in 3 days, but mom waited 7, so they're starting to heal under = the skin. There's no way to convince a 3 year old that taking them out = doesn't hurt like it did putting them in. Dermabond circumvents all this.   Andy, just be careful about keeping your finger wet. We've seen some problems with these women and their artificial nails - they can get fungus infections under them. Therefore, I'd put a little alcohol around your = nail a couple times a day and make sure it gets dry. Blow around it with the blow dryer before you go to bed.   BTW, next time you mash your nail (that's what they say in the South), try taking a small gem clip partially unfolded in pliers, heat the bare end to red hot, and gently poke it thru the middle of the nail where the blood is building up pressure. You'll feel much better much sooner.   Keith Zimmerman, M.D. (sorry, just had to include that for credentials)

I have noticed that women's organ shoes have a strap across them. Why is this, and is it absolutely necessary?   Of course, there is a reason for the question. Yesterday just as I was changing shoes to warm up for my lesson, I stepped on and ripped off one of the straps. Inasmuch as there isn't a shoe repairman in this area, I was thinking of making the other shoe match.   I'm saving the gold ones for special occasions, threw out the first pair I had, and the second pair has a damaged latch. I'm rough on shoes.   Sitting here trying to develop a taste for Chivas and water,   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com
