(back) Subject: Re: DC residence organ removal - flattened pipes From: "Ed Steltzer" <steltzer@gwi.net> Date: Thu, 5 Feb 2004 13:39:49 -0500   Back in the days when I had little money and large desire for pipe sound, restoring flattened pipes became a routine thing. I made an expander consisting of two parallel sticks about 3 ft. long to reach down into the pipe. At the bottom, or "working" end, the sticks had complementary = ramps sawn into their facing sides. The outside of the sticks was rounded. By pulling on one and pushing the other down, the bottom end of the tool became larger and expanded the pipe metal. Move it around, work carefully and patiently ...... voila!   (If the languid is damaged, take the pipe apart and start over.)

This is how I'm doing it = now:   1. Create a measure of however many beats for the incipt (if there is one)   2. Create a measure of 16/8 for the reciting note   3. Create a measure of however many beats if there are MORE than 16 syllables to the reciting note   4. Create a measure of however many beats for the mediation or cadence   5. Go back and hide the time signatures and extra bar-lines   BUT, if there are LESS than 16 pulses to the recitation, I ALSO can't find a way to make Sibelius put in a ||O||.   It's SUCH a nuisance ... I'm threatening to charge him DOUBLE if he insists on it (grin).   Cheers,   Bud      
(back) Subject: Re: Colourful descriptions for Colin From: "F. Richard Burt" <effarbee@verizon.net> Date: Thu, 5 Feb 2004 16:44:47 -0600   Hello, Paul, et al: I remember a Sunday in New York when we "did church." Starting at the Riverside Church, we enjoyed the huge Aeolian-Skinner/rebuilt/expanded/revoiced, etc., and headed for Saint John the Divine. Arriving just as the postlude started, we could hear the enchamade blasting away, all the way out on the sidewalk. As we cleared the foyer, there was a woman sitting at a table (to pass out literature about some event or participative cause) with her hands over her ears, leaning forward with her elbows on the table, ...seemingly praying for the pain to stop. <grins> Those huge trumpets sound great up about mid-nave, but the sound pressure right below them in really intense. Don't have a name for that sound, but it carries with the profundity of the Queen Elizabeth-II when she sounds off. I can assure you that it doesn't have to be a "too brilliant, loud, and startling electronic solo reed" to wake the dead, ....or maybe those who just settled cozily in semi-slumber during the service. Those trumpets do not have a "name." They have an image in my mind, that of the woman with her hands over her ears. Oh, ...then we went on with "doing church" to Saint Patricks and Saint Thomas. Wow! What a day. <grins> F. Richard Burt ..
