(back) Subject: Eight Little Preludes and Fugues and other matters. From: "bobelms" <bobelms@westnet.com.au> Date: Tue, 21 Sep 2004 08:47:56 +0800   I have seen the Eight Little Preludes and Fugues ascribed to JS Bach, some =   of his progeny, friends, relations, teachers, students, everybody except Michael Angelo, James Watt, and David the Shepherd Boy. Whoever wrote them =   will never, never be discovered unless more written evidence is found and that does not appear to be likely. Guess all you like and you will never really know. Moi? I just play them and be hanged to who wrote them; I couldn't care = less. Discussion on this matter is fruitless.   The Organ Historical Trust of Australia has its annual conference in Perth =   and Fremantle Western Australia commencing on Saturday next. This state = has several organs by indigenous builders whose instruments are not found anywhere else. Paul Hufner, now retired, built 30 organs, all unit organs = of various sizes up to 20 ranks, mainly in the 1950s and 60s, Robert Clifton, =   public servant, built five fine little instruments between 1875 and 1902, = FJ Larner, 20 odd instruments including some classic organs in the 1970s to 2000, Lynn Kirkham built twoin the 1980s, one of which, a mechanical = action instrument, is classed as one of the best in existence. The largest Church =   organ in Australia in St Patrick's Basilica, Fremantle, will be visited = and a recital given by the Basilica organist, Dominic Perissinotto. There are only about 105 pipe organs in the whole of this state which covers one million square miles, most concentrated in the south west corner of the state.   Of the 62 delegates registered 7 come from the UK and several from New Zealand. It should be an interesting week. Bob Elms.

From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@direcway.com> Date: Mon, 20 Sep 2004 21:04:39 -0500   It is so good to have water and electricity again (just today - got to empty contents of the fridge and freezer into the trash). We are all fine here, just really tired - it has been an ordeal, too much to tell here.   But the folks in Pensacola have been devastated - no water, no sewer, no electricity (today it was announced by EOC over there that only 19,000 residents had electricity restored), all the bridges damaged. I only got to see the pictures for the first time today by perusing the Pensacola News Journal site - it's heartbreaking. I can't get up with any of my friends over there.   Thanks for all your prayers.   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com

I don't think came from ITMA. It was the catch phrase of an old comedian called Sandy Powell. Around about 1989, Ros = and I went to a Saturday Night show put on at the Technical College Theatre = here in Coventry. It was presented by the Heart of England Music Hall Society = and the guest star at the show was none other than Sandy Powell himself. He = was at that time around 85 years old and he was accompanied by his wife who acted as his "stooge" and was absolutely fantastically funny. We ached = with laughing. In the first half he did his "cod ventriloquist" routine - = where he is dressed in a kind of military band outfit and his vent's doll = keeps misbehaving and falling to bits. (And of course Sandy can't make the = doll speak without moving his own lips!) Hilarious! In the second half he did about 20 minutes of "stand-up", and I wish I had written down some of = the jokes - amazing. During the finale he sang a song called "I want to give = you all a little present". He carried a basket and threw various odd items = out to the audience. One came in our direction and Ros caught it. It was a kipper! (Wrapped in cling-film luckily) Ros's Dad ate it for his = breakfast the following day.   On the following Tuesday we heard the news that Sandy had passed away. = There is a plaque in the foyer of the theatre now, commemorating his last performance, and if asked for a claim to fame, Ros now says, "I caught = Sandy Powell's last kipper!"   =20   Will Light Coventry UK   -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org] On Behalf Of Harry Grove Sent: 21 September 2004 08:09 To: PipeChat Subject: Re: Am I here? - on-thread ?   =20   SNIP   =20   "Can you hear me Mother ?"   Catch-phrase from a WWII BBC radio show 'ITMA' (It's That Man, Again)   =20   SNIP
