Organ = Clearinghouse relocated a large Aeolian about a year ago from a summer house......seems = to me it was in Michigan or Wisconsin?   There is a home in New Albany, Indiana (metro Louisville, KY) that has an original small home organ unless it was removed recently. Smaller builder......might have been Louisville Pipe Organ?   And my first pipe organ--Wicks Opus #1085 was originally a residence = organ, ca. 1930, in Cincinnati, OH. Originally had a player mechanism. 15 = ranks, 3 manual, horseshoe console. I never had a chance to put it together, = alas, and finally had to sell it, and the new owner parted it out.   Dennis Steckley & A Six-Pack of Cats

I am deeply moved, in particular in these rather cold, stormy and uncertain days. Who knows where time will lead us. Thanks again. It helped a lot.

He blessed our church with a thrilling concert back in 1999 (wow, has it been that long?) and he, his = parents, and I have remained good friends since.   I hope to go to hear his graduation recital in Philadelphia.   Neil by the extremely frozen, frigid, arctic bay

He's usually quite happy, unless he is of a possessive nature, as he gets the money without having to do anything! Is it not the difference between playing on a regular basis, which requires substantial commitment in terms of time and opportunity cost, and for which organists are usually paid, or for a special occasion, which might be more of a one off experience with the pleasure of novelty? The regular organist should be paid whatever the circumstances!   Bud Clark quilisma@cox.net wrote If the clergy permit a visiting organist, that's money out of MY pocket and food off MY table.     John Foss       =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D www.johnfoss.gr http://groups.yahoo.com/group/orgofftop/ Topics of the week : "Fantasist or liar, Blair is unfit to govern" Prison sentences - Ronnie Biggs   ________________________________________________________________________ Yahoo!
