The usual English = pronunciation (in pronouncing versions of the KJB, etc.) is MaraNAtha. = So you pays your money and you takes your choice!   John Speller. ----- Original Message -----=20 From: Joe Elliffe=20 To: pipechat@pipechat.org=20 Sent: Thursday, November 18, 2004 3:22 PM Subject: Correct pronunciation needed     I would appreciate it if someone on the list could provide the=20   pronunciation for the word MARANATHA- Is it Mar-a-na- tha =20   or Marana-tha Thanks in advance

I am new to this chat room and I live in Nova Scotia. My gggrandfather = who had the surname 'George' (John) and who came from Cardiff, Wales = was apparently a pipe organ maker and settled in Lynn, Mass.- 1800's. I = was wondering if there are historical records of exisiting pipe organs = in that area or how I might find records? It would be an interesting = piece to add to our family history. Can anyone tell me if this was a = common craft in that era or would he have travelled far and wide to = assemble/ build these organs? Who knows, there may even be one here in = Canada! Well, thanks in advance if anyone can assist. Michele in NS

Tracker organs and Harmoniums "blow".   BTW, I was trying to help a kid at church to play a major scale on his Harmonica - of which I'm only a novice myself. I had him start on hole #4 and caught myself saying, "blow-suck-blow-suck-blow-suck-suck-blow" which gives you the C major scale on a C Harmonica. Then I thought out loud, "what I'm saying sounds pretty bad!".   I made the mistaken observation about a malfunctioning vacuum cleaner - = that it sucked. Of course, I was incorrect, because the problem was that it didn't suck.   It's late. My humor isn't very good.   Sorry,   Keith

Everyone should be taught that the best way to tell a reed is if it says Quack. Otherwise they are just not an educated organist :-)   Alicia Zeilenga       -----Original Message----- From: Liquescent <quilisma@cox.net>     > You get to talk about whether a Trumpet stop makes and "ong" or an > "ang" > sound; we get to talk about the correct pronunciation of "alleluia" > (chuckle).
