They are absolutely doing the wrong thing by selling the pipe organ. What a disgrace.     Good question. Good analysis of yours.     No answer for either. All we can say is that's what they've decided, and that's that. I fear two-thirds, at least, of NZ pipe organs will be discarded over the next 50 years, as they become needful of restoration or rebuild, or churches shut down or merge elsewhere.     Sadly,   Ross     --- Incoming mail is certified Virus Free.

(back) Subject: Re: Free pipe organ in Greensboro, NC From: "Tom Jones" <tomj@netpath.net> Date: Sun, 23 May 2004 02:48:03 -0400   I can't help wondering whether this is the six-rank Pilcher from the old sanctuary of Mebane Presbyterian Church. It was removed about 1972 and sold to a man named in Greensboro (30 miles way). He'd always wanted a = pipe organ, and the church sold him this one for $400. The Pilcher was built in 1926 (Henry Pilcher's Sons of Louisville), = two manuals with six ranks. It was a good little organ.   Regards, Tom Jones     ----- Original Message ----- From: "Adrianne Schutt" <maybe@pipcom.com> To: "Pipechat" <pipechat@pipechat.org> Sent: 22 May, 2004 15:50 Subject: Free pipe organ in Greensboro, NC     > This was posted to Hamtech this morning.
