As part of Mr. Skinners quid pro quo arrangement with Willis after his second trip over the puddle, Skinner handed over complete plans for his combination machines, among other things (even pitman chests!). Somewhere in the UK, there was a large Willis console that was "upgraded" maybe ten or fifteen years ago, which featured the Willis copies of Skinner's jamb machines. My employers had an opportunity to view them sitting on the floor somewhere after the machines had been removed. From all accounts, they were part for part just like the Skinner machines, they were beautiful, and they were absolutely huge!!! I suppose they would have been here in our shop right now, but they did not qualify for a carry-on on the plane. I will ask what organ that was, and perhaps other Willis organs of the same vintage might have the same machines!   The Callahan book (American Classic Organ: A History in Letters) is a great way to learn all about the exchanges of both thought and organ parts between Willis and Skinner, among others. One of my favorite parts of the book was when Mr. Skinner was writing about Marcel Dupre, who was to play at the big Barton organ at Chicago Stadium (the organ being referred to as "abomination" by one of the two). I have to paraphrase Mr. Skinner as I don't have the book in front of me, but, he said something to the effect of "Surely one who loves chocolate soda would not want to be thrown in a vat of it!"   By the way, has anyone on the list ever heard the Chicago Stadium goal horn in person?

(back) Subject: SRO Dallas From: "Margo Dillard" <dillardm@airmail.net> Date: Tue, 26 Apr 2005 08:19:02 -0500   Well folks - the organ is apparently alive and well after all - at least in Dallas Texas.   Last night, there was an organ concert - yep - no symphony, etc. - just organ. They recorded an "episode" of Pipedreams at the Meyerson. Granted, it was a free concert. But....   I teach until 7 - so I flew down to the Meyerson - got there just as the concert was starting. My first surprise, the outside parking lots were full. Hmmm, I thought, there must be some other activity down here in the arts district tonight, too. So, I circled the block to the underground garage - and went down and down and down to the 6th level of heck before I found a vacant space. Hmmmm - this is strange - I didn't think this garage was for anything but the Meyerson.... Walked through to the Meyerson with a rather large group of last-minute-arrivers. (the group I was walking with even quipped - where did all these people come from, don't they know it is an organ concert?) Got inside. NO SEATS! The place was absolutely packed. Apparently had been since a good while before start time. Programs - forget it. Ushers said programs ran out over 30 min. before concert time. At least 100 people were sitting around on steps, on benches, milling around in the lobby area - hoping that some people would leave at intermission so they could get in. And these weren't all upper crust, either. I saw your symphony-goer types in their finery, but there were also ordinary folks, working-class families with children - many sitting and waiting, many looking at the displays of pipe organs, and unfortunately many of us heading back to the garage for the disappointed drive home. As I left, more were still arriving. They could have filled the Meyerson at least 1 1/2 times - and as many of know, that is no small space. I believe it seats over = 2000.   I don't live in Dallas and don't take the Dallas papers - so I couldn't tell you how it was promoted. But, somebody did something right and proved that an organ concert CAN fill a house.   Someone else will have to tell you how the concert was....   Margo -- Dr. Margo Dillard Organist, FUMC, Lewisville, TX Musical Feast Choral Society Dillard Piano & Organ Studio

Does anyone do this regularly at your church? The piles of boxes etc in front of the blower room door rather suggest that they don't! Blowers don't usually catch on fire! Overheating from un-oiled bearings sounds to me the probable cause.     Will--   It has always been my assumption that the blower was taken care of at regular intervals during service calls (twice per year). However, this unfortunate wake-up call will preclude me from assuming that any more, and I'll make sure that proper maintenance is done from now on. Nothing like shutting the gate after the cows have gone!   However, the boxes in front of the door don't imply too much--things pile up rather quickly at Grace Church, and the blower room is in the corner of a storage room, which is located behind another storage room in the basement. It's way off the beaten track, and people are known for stowing items of dubious value in this place. Interestingly enough, it all was part of the basement gymnasium when the 1923 building was built--which I daresay might be ahead of the general thoughts of the time!   Daniel Hancock Springfield, Missouri

The blower had been rebuilt, and new bearings installed, so they were not overly loose. Upon studying the Spencer instructions and diagrams on the website, I found that there was a missing ring between the blower and motor housings. I also found a notation that this ring should be kept in place to keep air from blowing the oil out of the bearings. A couple of split leather rings solved the problem! I hope this information will be of use to you or someone else. Roy Redman   Roy--   I will be meeting the organ curator at the church this morning for an inspection of the blower. We'll see what he finds! The problem is that the blower is much larger than any of the doors leading to the closet where it is located. If it has to be replaced, it will be a real mess!   That, or we'll leave it, and put a new blower in an adjacent space...   Daniel Hancock Springfield, Missouri

But when I got down there, the grille was on the upper portion of the door, where boxes weren't. =20   I think you're right about the need for fresh air, or at least air that is conditioned to the same degree as the air in the space that the rest of the organ is in. =20   I can say for sure this: those storage rooms are getting cleaned out, and we'll post a sign on the door to the blower room explaining the need to not stack things in that location. =20   Daniel Hancock Springfield, Missouri

Such people might just save our instrument and = its >world. What are we doing?   I hate to present myself as an example..but since that is the person I know best....;-) I'll indulge.   As a teenager ( 15 -ish) I "sort of" liked classical music, and mixed Pop classics with the other stuff I listened to. Being mechanically inclined, and electronically oriented I found organs fascinating; both elctronic simulations as well as the pipe kind which no one would let me near! I could diddle a bit at a keyboard but left performing to others. I never did learn how to play.   I did like the resonance of a big pipe organ in a big space, as sound was my other hobby. I had a bargain record copy of Walter Kraft doing T&F and some other Bach stuff but never really listened as the music had little meaning in all its complexity. The idea of a composer's soul being exposed in his musical output was foreign to me.   By the time I joined the Navy I had refined my classical tastes somewhat, and while in Norfolk, Va. actually decided to try an organ concert sponsored by the local AGO. I sort of enjoyed it but felt clueless about the program aspect of the music. I picked up a flyer about the AGO and decided to contact them about being put on their mailing list. I never heard a thing. Perhaps they figured all sailors were heathens so why bother?   During the last year of my tour I picked up the Readers Digest album that included "sheep may safely graze" as performed by a "Virgil Fox". The lyrical beauty of that performance really grabbed me - maybe too schmaltzy for some - but it penetrated the fog in my brain.   A year after I got out I wandered into a music store where a young man played some Bach-like music on a "Rodgers organ". Jokingly I asked him if he was "Virgil Fox" - the only organ person I ever heard of. He said "no, but are you going to hear him this weekend?"   Bottom line: I went to Queens Community College that Saturday and was totally blown away by "Heavy organ". Finally something connected at a level that my uneducated musical mind could grasp. It was not the organ, it did sound pretty bad even to my untrained ears, but that was totally eclipsed by the virtuosity of the artist, and his gut-felt communication with the audience. He actually caused me to follow and recognize the patterns of the Pasacaglia as it developed, and a seed of understanding was planted, because at that point I wanted to know what stirred this man and this ancient composer.   I saw Virgil several more times, and at least twice at Carnegy Hall and by that time organs had taken on a whole new meaning. I enjoyed the exactness of E. Power Biggs, the Moog silliness of then Walter Carlos, bought LPs of all kinds of organ music and gradually moved into a more knowledgeable frame of mind.   For pure fun, I undulged in Theatre organs, but saw them as separate from the classical genre and learned that each had developed on their own, for their own niche in the musical world. Yes, I even enjoy Jazz on a B3.   A local theatre in 1983 had the opportunity to have its Wurlitzer returned and restored and I initated and completed that project. The rest as they say is history. Right now I am working with our local high school to put a Wurlitzer in a (hopefully new) auditorium.   Rather than learning how to play, I married a musician who became an organist, LOL, and I now spend a lot of my time bringing the concept of organ music to a level where it can connect to the general public. Our daughters are string players now. but appreciate the position of organs in the musical world.   As an aside... I took a girlfriend to a Virgil Fox concert at Carnegy hall and she exclaimed that he was insane and never wanted to go again. Needless to say, the romance was over. ;-)   OK ... sorry for this long diatribe, I really just wanted to say that you cant always expect to connect with youth or the "unwashed" if you keep it all scholarly, they'll turn off. Modern marketing learned this long ago. You need a vehicle to grab their attention. In my case it was Virgil Fox - and definitely NOT the Norfolk AGO!   Happy listening!   John V --
