Orgelbau From: "Karl Moyer" <kmoyer@marauder.millersville.edu> Date: Fri, 21 May 2004 14:34:08 -0400   My wife and I visited in a St. Martin's Chruch in Prague, used now for Lutheran services, and saw/heard a small two-manual tracker built by Merkelburger Orgelbau, if I have the name right. I look for a web-site = on Google but found none. Can anyone comment about this firm: location, = etc.?   Karl E. Moyer Lancaster PA

Van Der Stad" <dorian@nac.net> Date: Fri, 21 May 2004 21:53:14 -0400   Hi, List   While paging through this months issue of the Diapason, there is a classified ad on page 33 that caught my attention.   This ad claims that a device uses ultra-high-tech black box technology to adjust reed scaling on the fly with the use of tiny laser beams.   Has anyone actually had any experience with this product, as well as some of the other gadgets and gizmos that are advertised from time to time? Methinks it may not be a substitute for the real thing.........   Jan S. Van Der Stad

My reading of the situation is that this month's invention works not so much through lasers as by pulling the wool over one's eyes. Now it would be nice if someone actually could invent something like this ....   John Speller      
(back) Subject: Music for D-day Anniversary From: "Bruce Miles" <bruce@gbmuk.fsnet.co.uk> Date: Sat, 22 May 2004 09:28:07 +0100   Hello all,   I have been thinking about suitable music for D-day Anniversary services. This year's Anniversary (the 60th) will be the last significant one at = which many of the survivors will be around.   May I suggest Sir William Walton's 'Prologue from a War-time Sketchbook' which is in 'A Walton Organ Album' (OUP). Not so well known as his Crown Imperial and music from the Shakespeare films, but still typical and = worthy Walton.   This music is from the war-time film 'Went the day Well' - his first film score ?   More suggestions this occasion would be of great interest.   Bruce Miles   website - http://www.gbmuk.fsnet.co.uk/index.html
