Ollikkala" <71431.2534@compuserve.com> Date: Tue, 1 Jun 2004 20:38:22 -0400   Hello Andy, there is a working William Nutting Jr. 1860 one-manual tracker in the White Church, Grafton VT, I conducted an organ crawl there in 1993 with 100 people, and as far as I know it is still used seasonally. The Brick Church next = to it, also owned by the parish, has a Samuel S. Hamill of East Cambridge MA one-manual c1868 tracker. The Nitting organ is considered the largest known unaltered organ he = built,   is original to this building. The chestnut case has 3 flats of gold-leafed wooden dummy pipes, recessed keydesk. The crawl demonstration of each was given by Barbara Owen. I don't remember which parish is used in the summer and which in the winter! Judy Ollikkala, Worcester MA

Grafton was celebrating their 250th anniversary this past weekend (memorial day weekend) and had a =   variety show in the White Church Saturday night, with Grafton people doing =   music, poetry reading, etc. I live in Burlington now but am a 4th or so generation Graftonite, so they called and asked if I'd play something on = the organ. The organ probably would have sat silent if I didn't rise to the occasion. Would have been a real shame with every pew stuffed to = capacity. Another fun thing, curator Erik Johansson reinstalled the hand pump handle =   about an hour before the event and hand pumped for one piece (we were = going to hand-pump everything, but something is not quite right and the hand = pump could not wind more than one stop at a time). I spent 3 days with the = organ trying to get used to the pedalboard, and I consider it time well spent. = I have yet to see how long it will take me to be able to play an AGO pedalboard again! :)   Back in 1993, when you did that organ crawl, I was graduating from high school (Bellows Falls), had quit piano lessons about 4 years prior, and = had yet to ever take an organ lesson. A lot changes in 11 years!   The white church is the one they use in the winter because the brick = church does not have heat.   Andy   On Tue, 1 Jun 2004 20:38:22 -0400, Judy A.

(back) Subject: Practical, Non-Hymn Preludes From: "Robert Nickel" <rnickel@charter.net> Date: Tue, 1 Jun 2004 21:58:02 -0500   I would like some recommendations on practical, non-hymn-based preludes. Something in the easy-medium to medium range would be good. Any suggestions?

Clark, Quilisma Publications" <quilisma@cox.net> Date: Tue, 01 Jun 2004 20:45:33 -0700   In ascending order of quality/difficulty, sorta (grin):   Lorenz organ magazines: The Organist (two staves, really easy); The Organ Portfolio (three staves, easy); the Sacred Organ Journal (three staves, easy-medium easy) ... they come out quarterly now, I think.   French harmonium books - Langlais (forget the title ... two volumes), Tournemire Postludes Libres, Franck L'Organiste, but READ THE PREFACE .... you have to draw the right PITCHES and TIMBRES to emulate the divided keyboard of the French harmonium, Boellmann Heures Mystique   Dubois - Twelve Pieces, Seven Pieces   Guilmant - Liturgical Organist, Practical Organist (Leopold edition, available from OHS)   Reger - some of the non-choral-based pieces ... Melodia, etc. ... Kalmus used to print them, maybe Dover does now   I used to play a lot of Couperin and Dandrieu because you could add short movements if Mass was late starting <g>.   SLOW MOVEMENTS OF WIDOR AND VIERNE SYMPHONIES, though some of those are pushing the "medium" difficulty <g> ... the Adagio from the Vierne 1st is NOT easy; neither is the Pastorale, but they're both worth it.   Cheers,   Bud         Robert Nickel wrote:   > I would like some recommendations on practical, non-hymn-based preludes. > Something in the easy-medium to medium range would be good.
