From: "T.Desiree' Hines" <nicemusica@yahoo.com> Date: Sun, 26 Sep 2004 22:17:29 -0700 (PDT)   This evening (Sunday) I was guest organist at Our Lady of Mt Carmel here = in Chicago with the Rebuilt EM Skinner in the Gallery and the sumptuous, = sensuous, sexy Visser Rowland (YES I went there!) There is just something = about that Visser Rowland that just makes me melt when its played. Its = such a good organ. My friend James Ward is music director for this = service, and we shared duties antiphonally. I was on the Skinner and he = was on the Visser. I mean as he played, I almost turned the skinner of and = went to do my parts of the mass on the Visser. That organ fills the room = so nicely. This is ofcourse where William Ferris was OCM for a number of = years until his sudden death, which James told me about as we walked to = dinner after church. Now, the Skinner is nice, but has glitches from the redo. To cancel = registrations, one must sit and press contiunously the cancel button, some = of the notes are dead because of electrical faulty. The stops...there is = one 16 reed knob on the pedal for the hugue 16' trombone, which made me = think "now there should be a borrow from the swell 16 Waldhorn to give = some pedal reed variety" I did not want to have the roar of the biggest = reed from start to finish. The swell Battery..the Long res. reeds sounded = like Tuba Mirabili. I mean those B.....were BIG! There was, in the spring, = a very nice 8' Chamade added, Very full and round, smooth. Things...just = did not seem so...Ernestine or Skinneresque guess I could say. I can say = that a bit mor etime at that organ would have been nice. It not like the = Skinner at First Unitarian Church Chicago, which is just amazing. It = sounds like the tonal output was altered when they redid the organ, and = there are definately stops that were moved. They could have atleast left a knob for the 16 waldhorn on the pedal for one to be = FF and another to be FFFF. Similarly I remember when I was in Atlanta playing for some people last = year, and I got to play an Aeolian-Skinner that had been redone by a = company. This is at a larger UMC congregation in ATL's Midtown 'hood. = Posh, busy, and the neighborhood immediately north of Peachtree Center and = downtown. Now that organ had 2 volumes...Loud and nosebleed. I mean if its = any organ that I can say that I just abhor its that one. I pushed stops = in....nothing happened. So what gives? Why do builders get a good organ with a good history and = make it unbearable? Desiree'     From Desiree' T.

(back) Subject: Thank-you Roger Sherman From: "bnorth" <bnorth@intergate.ca> Date: Sun, 26 Sep 2004 23:14:33 -0700   Tonight, Roger Sherman announced at the end of the 404th edition of the = Organ Loft, that the program will no longer be on Sunday nights on = KING-FM, Seattle Washington. It will be integrated into another program = during the week on the same station. I am sure the Mr Sherman has many = fans throughout the organ world, I am just one of many that would like = to express my appreciation to him for all his hard work on the Organ = Loft program. I enjoyed listening in on Sunday nights at 10PM, I would = go into my computer room, close the doors and turn the volume up and = just unwind from the weekend, and get ready for the week ahead. Again, = thanks, I still think the best joke was your Halloween story of St Marks = selling their pipe organ and getting an electronic organ!!

Not sure how points east of Largo fared -- the pastor at FUMC where I played cancelled services today because Jeanne was due to hit about that same time ...this is the only church I've ever played in that cancelled services because of weather... but a ot of the local churches cancelled today as well...I'm just hoping the wind didn't do any roof = damage over the organ chambers.   Tom Hoehn, Organist Roaring 20's Pizza & Pipes, Ellenton, FL (substitute - 4/42 Wurlitzer) First United Methodist Church, Clearwater, FL (4/9?- = Rodgers/Ruffati/Wicks) Manasota/OATOS/HiloBay/CIC-ATOS/VotS-ATOS/DTOS http://theatreorgans.com/tomhoehn http://launch.groups.yahoo.com/group/TOUploads/ ----- Original Message ----- From: "Liquescent" <quilisma@cox.net> To: "PipeChat" <pipechat@pipechat.org> Sent: Monday, September 27, 2004 1:33 AM Subject: Re: organ and choral music of Richard Purvis     > No prob ...
