What art can teach, What human voice can reach The sacred organ's praise? Notes inspiring holy love, Notes that win their heavenly ways To mend the choirs above. Orpheus could lead the savage race; And trees unrooted left their place, Sequacious of the lyre; But bright Cecilia raised the wonder higher: When to her organ vocal breath was given, An angel heard, and straight appeared,=20 Mistaking earth for heaven.   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com   -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org] On Behalf Of Roy Redman Sent: Thursday, September 09, 2004 9:02 PM To: PIPORG-L@listserv.albany.edu Cc: PipeChat Subject: Famous scholar organs quotes   I am interested in quotes from famous people about the Pipe Organ.=A0 I remember Schweitzer "the search for the good organ is part of the search for truth", and I have seen many others in the past.=A0 Does anyone have = a good source for these quotes?.

(back) Subject: RE: Trinity Wall Street organ damage From: "Will Light" <will.light@btinternet.com> Date: Fri, 10 Sep 2004 08:51:38 +0100   Two or three years ago now, or maybe four or five the way my brain deals with time these days, there was a fire at Coventry Cathedral. It was confined to a closet which held vestments and it was in the choir = school, which is in the basement, under the cathedral floor and at the opposite = end of the building from the organ. The cathedral was filled with smoke. The organ was taken down and completely cleaned. The vast Graham Sunderland tapestry also had to be specially cleaned as well as the whole of the = rest of the cathedral walls, roof, floors and furnishings. This was only a = small fire, which was extinguished quite rapidly and was confined to the one = small cupboard. So it seems that the authorities took smoke damage quite seriously. The organ was out of action for about 5 or 6 months I think.   Will Light Coventry UK     -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org] On Behalf Of RMB10@aol.com Sent: 09 September 2004 15:23 To: TubaMagna@aol.com; pipechat@pipechat.org Subject: Re: Trinity Wall Street organ damage   >Did you get to see the toxicology reports, the breakdown of the = various=20 particulate samples >taken from within various windchests, and get to = read=20 anything about how the smoke >effected the pipes?

Several weeks before I started my = internship,=20 the church had a fire in the basement, and smoke made it's way into the =   sanctuary and organ chambers. While it did no physical damage to the organ, the=20 smoke did begin to do some corrosion to the pipe metal and the church = was=20 afraid that the leathers in the organ would be damaged, too. The = church hired a=20 consultant to fight with the insurance company, since the insurance = company   felt that there was no damage to the organ. It took the church several years=20 to finally settle with the insurance company and be able to get the = organ=20 cleaned. Even after a year, there was some visible corrosion on the = pipes from=20 the smoke and we did have problems with ciphers due to contact = corrosion and=20 problems in the chests. Even on a very minor level, I saw what a = little bit=20 of smoke damage can do, so I can only guess as to what a significant = amount of=20 smoke and debris can do. =20 Monty Bennett   ****************************************************************** "Pipe Up and Be Heard!"
