Low C was about a foot tall, and fat, like a mortar shell.

I like LOTS of things that are charming and useless (chuckle).   We smoked in the Steiner practice room ... Parvin Titus' old studio organ, not the Steiner tracker with the "off" pedalboard.   I mostly practiced on the old ???/rebuilt Schlicker tracker, or at the church.   I suppose all those organs had disappeared by the time you arrived.   Cheers,   Bud   Keys4bach@aol.com wrote:   > In a message dated 11/20/2004 8:30:04 AM Eastern Standard Time, > quilisma@cox.net writes: > >> and some later Moller practice organs >> (now in Cincinnati, I think) that had an INDESCRIBABLE 16-8-4 Regal = unit >> as the only 16' in the pedal.

I'm not suicidal, and I'm not quite as bad as a Cardinal. I could probably clean, dust and organize the RC church to where it would be barely recognizable, and ruffle some feathers at the Vatican (which would be quite useful for making more dusters for the rest of the world). In fact, allowing men to be the leaders of the world was just the first major mistake we made. Just imagine . . . .   However, I haven't eaten anyone alive in a three or more months, and haven't bitten anyone in three weeks. I am utterly charming and delightful - at least that's what my paid advisers tell me.   Why would I wear a hat, when my perfectly coiffed hair matches my gold shoes? I want to call attention to my feet on the pedals. All accessories must discreetly add to the effect, not detract.   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com (who adores hats and owns a few, but doesn't wear them, and has even quit wearing her rings when playing)   P.S.

(back) Subject: Roosevelt opus number? From: <Seedlac@aol.com> Date: Sat, 20 Nov 2004 17:57:58 EST   Might anyone know if the Roosevelt firm produced an opus 865? If so, who = was the customer? I am trying to identify an instrument and have located 865 = on several pipes. Thanks Steve  
(back) Subject: Re: Roosevelt opus number? From: <TubaMagna@aol.com> Date: Sat, 20 Nov 2004 18:21:01 EST   Dear Steve:   865 seems an unlikely Roosevelt opus number. The firm was established in 1872 by Hilborne L(ewis), and was taken = over by his brother Frank in 1887. By the end of 1888, they had produced about = 420 organs. After Frank took over, they produced about 30 organs per year in = the first two years, which is all the information I have. I currently own opus 408 of 1888, which may have been installed two = years later, and the firm folded in 1893. Pipemakers' names are frequently scribed or stamped in my instrument; numerical markings seem rare. There are only two markings, one of which is = too high to be an opus number. They might be job numbers or pattern numbers.   Sebastian M. Gluck New York City   ..
