From: "Administrator" <admin@pipechat.org> Date: Fri, 4 Jun 2004 05:41:47 -0500   Well, after checking with the developer it turns out that there is a little bug that has reared it ugly head. What triggered it no one knows but after I posted to the developers list for the software it seems others that are using this product are having the same problem and it has to do with how the software is parsing the headers of incoming emails. The developer is working on a bug fix that should be out within the next week. So hang in there and hopefully we will get this problem fixed very soon.   David -- **************************************** David Scribner Owner / Co-Administrator PipeChat   http://www.pipechat.org mailto:admin@pipechat.org

This is explained to all brides/grooms at their consultation with the Minister of Music. Because = of this, we have had weddings that have had small vocal ensembles sing backup with = a soloist and we've had small musical ensembles play. We have a pipe organ, =   Hammond organ, and a grand piano in the sanctuary, as well as two handbell = choirs, an orchestra, and a plethora of soloists, ensebles and choirs. Why would anyone need to use a CD? They are already spending a fortune on the = wedding, what's a few more hundred dollars, or even a thousand, at that point, for = LIVE musicians--people who have musical training and can do it better than the = people on the CD anyway? Most likely, the CD is not some German orchestra = playing Wagner, but a $10.99 CD of the World's Greatest Love Songs sung by a = cheesy crooner bought in the bargain bin at the local music store or by some = American Idol reject selling the CD on a late night infomercial. Need I say = more???? People just don't understand why they can't bring CD's in and play them, = but at my church, it's all explained to them that using recorded music is not appropriate when there are capable musicians on staff with adequate = musical instruments available. (well, when our pipe organ is up and running!) = Unfortunately, the people getting married these days are the kids who were raised = thinking fast-food qualified as a real meal. They don't know the difference = between McDonald's and a sit-down dinner. They didn't (for the most part) have = music in their schools, so they don't know the difference between a CD of some = Celine Dion love song or an appropriate marriage solo. It's all about educating = people as to why and how things are done. I don't think all weddings need to be "cookie cutter" affairs, where every bride walks down the aisle to Trumpet =   Voluntary, but if the marraige SERVICE is to be held in a church or = synagogue, shouldn't it have a little bit of respect for the fact that it is a = service of worship first? Save all the pop songs for the reception, there are plenty = of good religious songs, classical/traditional AND even contemporary (but = worshipful) that work for the setting, but that can be played by a live musician or musicians. The pastor/church board/deacons/elders all need to back up the = music staff on this however, because if they don't, a bride's mother will go = with her daughter to the pastor and whine, and the pastor will back right down and = give in and let the CD be played, and then we look like the bad guys. I'm = lucky, that our pastor backs us up in everything we do, and he's probably the = biggest supporter of the music department--and especially with the construction of = our new building, he ws the one who adamantly has said, there will be no projection screens and there will be ONLY a pipe organ!

(back) Subject: Re: Leaving organ blowers on. From: "Richard Schneider" <arpschneider@starband.net> Date: Fri, 04 Jun 2004 08:03:39 -0500   David H. Hawkins writes: > > Turning on the blower starts a timer which will shut the blower off in = 4 hours.   > > Pressing the blower on switch any time during that interval resets the = timer for another 4 hours.     Then Paul Emmons writes in response to this:   > This is precisely what I was dreaming of and have never seen.   I've been following this thread, and would like to offer some comments and suggestions to folks. As a Registered Electrical Contractor who is an organbuilder, I see two possibilities that would be very easy to implement:   1) Most larger instruments use a start/stop pushbutton type arrangement for the blower because the motors are so large as to require three phase current and thus, magnetic starters for their proper operation and overcurrent protection.   It would be a VERY easy matter to install a leaf-type Micro-switch inside the console that is held down whenever the roll top is opened up. That Micro-switch would then be connected in series with the STOP button on the console that controls the "holding" circuit on the magnetic starter.   With magnetic starters, anything interrupting that holding circuit causes the blower to drop out. Thus, with such an arrangement, whenever someone closes the roll top, the contact plunger on the Micro-switch is no longer being held in the ON position by the roll top, and so the holding circuit is broken. Obediently, the blower simply drops out (shuts off) as soon as the roll top is beginning to be closed.   2) On instruments where this is not possible to implement because of the lack of a roll top, another automatic shutoff possibility that is not quite as "clunky" as a wall-mounted wind-up timer switch (which "tick" annoyingly, like a Metronome, BTW!) would be to incorporate a motion-sensor switch on the Knee Panel at some point underneath the keybed, pointing out at the organist. Since it's typical behavior for organists to move their legs, while performing, the motion sensor would then "sense" the presence of the organist discretely. When motion is no longer being sensed, then the motion sensor would shut off the organ for lack of motion in the Pedal region.   Obviously: such an arrangement would have to be interfaced in such a a way so as to not ALWAYS be sensing motion, in order to prevent false cycling. When motion sensor switches are used to switch on lights in a room, whenever someone walks into a room, the lights go on. Obviously, if this were the ONLY control means on an organ, the scenario would exist whereby someone would walk by the organ console and could conceivably turn on the organ inadvertently, or even the friendly church mice might be turning it on as they scamper amongst the paper clips that you dropped beneath the Pedalboard!   Either one of these safeguards would be quite easy to implement, and I would be more than happy to consult privately with anyone who would be interested in having such ancillary controls fitted to their organ wiring. As a Registered Electrical Contractor, I could easily design and implement such installations for anyone's specific application.   Faithfully,   G.A.   -- Richard Schneider, PRES/CEO <>< Schneider Pipe Organs, Inc. 41-43 Johnston St./P.O.

(Everytime we plug a big air leak the tone/volume changes).   It keeps getting Louder..and louder..and well..where are my earplugs. (laughing)   It is an awesome instrument, built in '48 which attests to why Reuter is still making organs today in 2004!     Thanks again!

(back) Subject: Looking for help on M. Enrico Bossi From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@direcway.com> Date: Fri, 04 Jun 2004 20:35:07 -0500   Have rekindled my interest in Bossi works. I'm looking for a copy of the Fanfara, but think it may be located in the 10 Diverse Character Pieces offered by OHS. What I am having trouble finding is:   Etude Symphonique and The Sicilienne that goes with the famous/infamous Giga (I have the latter).   I did not find either of these listed on the Peters page, and am interested in how to obtain these. Any help would be appreciated   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com
