I did not receive, nor could I locate, a specification thereof. If any one has the spec., please post to the list or provide a link which can "transport" us to the specs. Thanks so much. . .   John Innes seems to be "the" organist at Moody. Are there assistants on staff there?   Thanks in advance for any and all info.   David Kenney   :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: Note: opinions expressed on PIPORG-L are those of the individual con- tributors and not necessarily those of the list owners nor of the Uni- versity at Albany.

This may just be an "urban legend."   Monty Bennett   ****************************************************************** "Pipe Up and Be Heard!"

Must be the sister ship to MY personal yacht.   The problem is that I haven't seen her since she was taken out for sea-trials by a Captain who flew over here from Holland ! (Sorry, attempt at humour)   Harry Grove [a.k.a. musicman]   Nothing separates the generations more than music. By the time a child is eight or nine, he has developed a passion for his own music that is even stronger than his passions for procrastination and weird clothes.
