My apology to you may perhaps be allowed temperance since I did firmly state that my remarks were based upon pure conjecture, and that I was not actually present to provide more reliable witness. If I had been, I certainly would have been delighted to finally meet you. Since my blithering grovel has perhaps attracted you attention, please permit me to say I find the instrument at Slee Hall to be quite special, and I also enjoy frequent visits to, and the pleasure of your new instrument in Finney Chapel at Oberlin, which is a scant 15 miles from my home.   Mark Nelson wrote:   > > I can tell you that David used French style > registrations in the Guilmant--no mixtures--just > reeds (and the Swell Cornet).

(back) Subject: Sorry Again From: "Mike Gettelman" <mike3247@earthlink.net> Date: Thu, 29 Jul 2004 10:21:29 -0400   I do seem to be stumbling with great frequency lately. I find I must again explain myself, this time concerning my remarks to Mark Nelson just posted. It seems I mixed up my organ lists and was referring to remarks I made on the Piporg-L list, not Pipechat. Should any Pipechat member need further clarification, please contact me privately and I will graciously reply. Mike    
(back) Subject: Peter Biachi - Crystal Cathedral CD [x-posted] From: "Charlie Lester" <crl@137.com> Date: Thu, 29 Jul 2004 11:34:39 -0700   Does anyone know if the CD that Peter Biachi made at the Crystal Cathedral, hm, maybe 12 years ago or so, is still available anywhere?   I've had a request for a copy and can't seem to find it. Gothic doesn't have it listed, and it's not coming up on the Tower Records site. I think the title was something along the line of "Music Under Glass" or some-such.   Time is of the essence on this, inasmuch as I'd like to present the CD as a birthday gift to the person who asked for it ... and his (50th) birthday is this coming Sunday...! So it would have to be Fed-Xed to me, or I could pick it up locally in L.A.   I wouldn't even mind getting a "previously enjoyed" copy if it's in presentable condition.   Thx in advance.   ~ C      
(back) Subject: RE: Peter Biachi - Crystal Cathedral CD [x-posted] From: "Daniel Webre" <danwebre@hotmail.com> Date: Thu, 29 Jul 2004 15:00:21 -0400   The CD is titled 'Organ under Glass' and is available from the Organ Historical Society, ohscatalog.com and costs $16.98. It may also be available from the Crystal Cathedral online store, though I have never ordered anything through them.   Hope this helps,   Dan Webre     >From: Charlie Lester <crl@137.com> >Reply-To: "PipeChat" <pipechat@pipechat.org> >To: Pipe Organs & Related Topics <piporg-l@listserv.albany.edu>, PipeChat =   ><pipechat@pipechat.org> >Subject: Peter Biachi - Crystal Cathedral CD [x-posted] >Date: Thu, 29 Jul 2004 11:34:39 -0700 > >Does anyone know if the CD that Peter Biachi made at the Crystal = Cathedral, >hm, maybe 12 years ago or so, is still available anywhere? > >I've had a request for a copy and can't seem to find it.

Just spectacular playing.   The C/C Gift Shop phone number is 1-714-971-4000.   Or you can order it on-line at: http://www.cathedralgifts.com/orunglascd.html   Again, much obliged --- and, er-... no more replies are necessry! ;P   ~ C
