From: "Jerry Richer" <jerry@ChirpingBat.Com> Date: Wed, 24 Nov 2004 06:08:12 -0500   Alan! It's not your Ithaca organ but it is a Moller. It's Moller = Opus 4142 in a small chapel in Saranac Lake which was originally part of the Trudeau Adirondack Cottage Sanitarium for the treatment of Tuberculosis. The museum is the Adirondack Museum at Blue Mountain Lake. I initially learned of the organ from a post to this list in 1998. I've visited it = with the idea of acquiring it for myself but it would be too large a project. = It probably hasn't played in decades. I've lived here most of my life and my first organ teacher lived in Saranac Lake and as far as I can tell no one knew this organ was even here. The building has been out of use for as = long as I can remember. Chirp|Chirp|Chirp: It's the Bat, Bat Arhonious Software, = www.chirpingbat.com

(back) Subject: Re: Colin and Composers From: "Colin Mitchell" <cmys13085@yahoo.co.uk> Date: Wed, 24 Nov 2004 06:16:21 -0800 (PST)   Hello,   Before I burst a blood vessel, I must make a vital point about music.   Why is it, that people always look back with the benefit of hindsight, and then pick out what they regard as "better" than everything else at the time?   It's the wrong conclusion!   In fact, it's the wrong question.   It's like saying that Shakespeare just dropped off a tree and started writing works of genius. Shakespeare did NOT invent the language or the prose, but was lucky enough to be born at a time when the sophisticated vocabulary of the day ENABLED him and EMPOWERED him.   Similarly with Bach and Handel......they came at the end of an innovative and highly structured period in music; inheriting counterpoint, the musical forms and language of several countries. Thus, they were able to draw together all the elements of the period, just as Shakespeare did......in fact, they were lucky.   Many would regard Reger's music as "confusing" or "dark" ......well good for him! Think World War! If ever a composer captured the mood of the period, Reger did it better than most.   But OF COURSE Brahms and Wagner were a better composers.....they wrote such lovely tunes.   Reger battled with the musical language of the day, and tried to create a style out of the extreme chromaticism of Wagner, and the neo-classical school of Brahms. His legacy is perhaps too recent for us to be in the position of finding a true perspective of his art, but my very personal viewpoint is that Reger was every bit the equal of Bach as an organ composer, and a darned site more prolific.   Reger also, in truth, took music down the path of 12-tone music. Had he abandoned his beloved counterpoint, he would have arrived there without difficulty. Instead, it was the incredibly dull Schoenberg and the awful Berg who rang the death-knell of German musical tradition, and set the world's teeth on edge.   It's interesting, but I recall talking to two extremely intelligent boys from the former Eastern Germany....Leipzig to be exact. They both performed with truly excellent youth orchestras, and were extremely gifted. When I asked them which composer they both admired above all, I was staggered when they both replied without hesitation, "Reger!"   Lest we forget, the music of Bach was dismissed by academics and pundits for over a century as a fuddy duddy.   In the end, quality comes down to fashion and pretty tunes doesn't it?   Surely not?   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK       --- "First Christian Church of Casey, IL" <kzrev@rr1.net> wrote:   > Colin--and Greg......I think you made my point; yes, > you could add Brahms > and perhaps Mendelssohn (though I'm not sure he'd > make the "top tier" of > composers) and all those early composers you > mentioned.......but, as much as > I like SOME of their music, I'm sorry, but IMNSHO > folk like Franck, Widor, > Durufle, Reger, et. al. will never be considered as > top tier composers.     __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!?

(back) Subject: Allen 103-C From: "Liquescent" <quilisma@cox.net> Date: Wed, 24 Nov 2004 07:49:40 -0800   We had some work done on a 301-C (same vintage ... 1st generation digital) and it was just fine afterwards. It took a couple of weeks to get a new combination action from Allen, but they had it.   They are what they are ... the sound isn't great, though if you adhere to the "less is more" rule when drawing stops (don't draw more than one stop of the same pitch, and don't couple the manuals unless you want the Swell reeds on the Great) and add a big fat Phonon Diapason via the Alterable Voices (if it has a card reader ... I don't remember the 103-C) it can be tolerable. Allen still makes cards for the card-readers of that series ... I think they're about $3 apiece ... just be sure you have the right model number when you ask for the catalog ... they aren't universally interchangeable.   The other things you can do, depending on the room, is turn the treble contours up or down in the speakers , if it's too shrill or too dull. The other trick, if the Pedal is weak, is to put the cabinet flush against a wall. The Pedal can also be turned up in the back of the console. Unfortunately, that also brings up the manual flutes, so you have to strike a balance.   The Alterables on the cards really were the life of those beasts, particularly the chorus reeds ... the Spanish Trumpet or Trompette Harmonique was MUCH better than the Trumpet on the Swell tablet.   Cheers,   Bud   Arie Vandenberg wrote:   > At 09:08 AM 2004-11-24 -0500, you wrote: > >> Have a Allen 103C at the chapel I am attending.
