Organ * We have a 1945 Hammond. * Plans are being made to purchase a 1966 Allen. Qualifications * The organist must not be a Catholic, Jew, or other unbeliever. * The organist must believe that the Bible is God's inerrant Word and that every word is exactly true, and when Matthew and Luke disagree in Jesus' genealogy, or when Leviticus forbids a man to marry his brother's widow and Deuteronomy orders him to marry her, then it is our own mind that is at fault, for when faith speaks, then reason must be silent. * The organist must have an I.Q. approximating that of a snowcone. * The organist must be heterosexual. Leviticus outlines how we must treat the sexually aberrant, so don't talk to us about "Christian Forgiveness." * The Sermon on the Mount tells us that we must destroy iniquity and that Jesus is capable of forgiving only good Christians. Duties * The organist directs the three adult choirs: the Noah's Flood Choir, the Garden of Eden Choir, and the Smite the Heathen Choir. * In addition, there are seven youth choirs, each named after a Plague of Egypt: the Frog Choir, the Pimples Choir, and so forth. Compensation * We pay $6.00 weekly. * The organist is expected to tithe 50% of this to the church. * Annual re-baptism (towel not provided). For further information, contact the Rev.

Skinner organ. * This instrument has needed re-leathering since 1954 and will be operable once we get the funds. * The organ maintenance fund, begun in 1957, now has $16.59. * Until the remaining $137,000 is raised, the organist can utilize the Baldwin FunMachine in the rear gallery. Qualifications * The organist must not be a Protestant, Jew, or other unbeliever. * The organist must accept the Word of God as being of primary importance, second only to the whims of the head priest. * As to weddings, the organist must be guided by the bride's favorite CD of the three tenors and forget that nonsense about musical "integrity". Duties * The organist plays the following masses: Saturdays at 1:00 PM, 3:00 PM, 5:00 PM, 9:00 PM, and 1:00 AM.; and Sundays at 4:00 AM, 6:00 AM, 9:00 AM, Latin Mass at 10:00 AM, Spanish Mass at 11:00 AM, Polish Mass at 12:00 noon, Gaelic Mass at 1:00 PM, and the 3:00 PM Hootenanny.   * The 8:00PM Bingo Mass is optional. * The organist also plays weekday Novenas, devotions, and rosaries from 6:00 AM to 8:00 PM. * The organist is responsible for all holy days, weddings, funerals, baptisms, confessions, etc. (without extra compensation, of course). * The organist also directs the Palestrina choir (five old ladies and one old man) and the Schola Guitarum. Compensation We pay Grace and Indulgence, as cash is of no use to a servant of God. For further information, contact Fr. Patrick O'Shaughnessy, Fr.Giovanni Battista Ferrari, or Fr. Wozelewski Szymenozski. =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D POSITION 3 Temple of Krishna Consciousness Organ * Made of bamboo, elephant tusks and monkey dung, it used to be a practice instrument at the University of Michigan. * The organist must not be a Christian, Jew, or other unbeliever.

We got a letter at my church this week, that the trustees of a foundation in Chicago is going to consider giving us a grant for invigorating our music program here. Im thank ful to God that Im doing things after only a month in the position.   A major part of that would be a new organ of pipe/digital combo by Cornell Zimmer or Rodgers/Ruffatti. As a matter of fact, im listening to Richard Morris right at this moment play the BelAir Pres organ of Rodgers/Cassavant. We can keep some of the current organ pipes, but most of the pipe work is just old and worn out. The people are excited,and im happy too. I woudl want to take some of those samples from the MX 200 and put them in the new organs stoplist. The great, swell and pedal would be as much pipe work as possible in the front of the church, and a solo horizontal trumpet. But with the digital voices, I could add a few floater divisions and a choir. I REALLY love celestes, so need some things for my lush pieces.   Anyway Thanks for the intro to the MX 200       From Desiree' T.

I've used hymns such as Lift High the Cross or Praise My Soul the King of Heaven (Lauda Anima) and other majestic hymns.

(back) Subject: Re: MIDI to drive pipe units From: "Bill Raty" <billious@billraty.com> Date: Tue, 16 Mar 2004 13:59:49 -0800 (PST)   Paul,   If you want to get an idea of what MIDI can do with real pipes w/o the real pipes try Hauptwerk, a pipe organ simulator in software that is midi driven.   I have a Baldwin A/205? (2 manual, draw-knob), circa 1998-9 and have used Hauptwerk, http://www.hauptwerk.co.uk , running on a PC to extend it. It will give you a good idea of what can be done when you substitute real pipes for the computer. The Hauptwerk site also has links to other organ and MIDI links.   The toughest part of what you'll need to do is convert the stop control MIDI signals from whatever console or instrument you're using to that required by the pipe unit. Here again there is a freeware PC program called MIDI-OX that will let you examine the midi messages being sent which you can optionally write scripts to convert to the messages your pipe unit is expecting for stop control.   Feel free to contact me off list for more information or if you need other questions answered. I'll do what I can.   Regards,   -Bill
