(back) Subject: Bangkok Pipe Organ From: "John Reimer" <jreimer@pnc.com.au> Date: Sat, 12 Feb 2005 08:07:51 +1100   Hans-Friedrich, I had expected by now to read a response to your request for details of = the "only pipe organ in Thailand", which is in Christ Church (Anglican), Bangkok. What I can tell you is based on my recollections from last July, when my wife and I visited good friends of ours, the Vicar and his wife, Stephen and Marion Gabbott. (Stephen in an earlier life was a chorister at =   St Andrew's Cathedral in Sydney. He and Marion are now back in Australia, ministering at Broome, and have been replaced by another Australian = couple.) During our short stay, I was asked to play the organ for two church services. It is a small tracker instrument, which I regarded as in good condition = and tune. I think the nameplate says "Henry Willis". It is certainly a Willis. =   There is no upperwork that I recall, and certainly no reeds. The Great has Open Diapason 8, and open flute 8, Dulciana 8, and Principal =   4, all quite good. What there is beyond that I don't recall. I would hope there is a Fifteenth 2, but I wouldn't guarantee it. The Swell has a string diapason 8, Gedacht 8, a string 8 (fairly keen, I think), and a flute 4 which needed some regulation and which I felt I couldn't use in quiet work. What else the Swell has I don't recall. The Pedal has 16-foot flues at two strengths (I think), plus probably a = Bass Flute 8. The organ is tuned every 2 years by Peter Jewkes of Sydney. It is no = concert organ, but I believe it is used for an organ recital on a regular basis.   I am the retired clergyman who emailed you quite some time ago concerning = a humorous cartoon drawing called, "Birthday Present for a Prodigy", and = which I intended to present to Felix when he visited Sydney for a recital in Sydney last October. It was an evening of fine playing, bringing us great music, and I enjoyed = it immensely. I gave the drawing to Felis afterwards. I hope he found it amusing.   John Reimer        
(back) Subject: Bach: Toccata in D Minor From: "Stephen Best" <stevebest@usadatanet.net> Date: Fri, 11 Feb 2005 16:10:13 -0500   Hi everyone --   Does anyone know how/when the connection of Bach's "Toccata in D Minor" with scary film scenes, evil geniuses, and Halloween began? Is its first use in this context part of film history, or had the association begun earlier? The subject came up in a lesson I was teaching this afternoon, and I couldn't shed light on the matter.   Steve Best in Utica, NY

And the choir makes a good sound.   Ross

(back) Subject: Britannic Prgan From: "John Nisbet" <oberlingerusa@msn.com> Date: Sat, 12 Feb 2005 01:39:21 -0500   Dear list,   The recent thread on the organ intended for the cruise ship/ then/ = Hospital Ship Britannic seemed to founder (no pun intended). So I thought to ask = the creator of the http://www.hospitalshipbritannic.com/ site more about the "pipe organ" pipes that were supposedly found by J. Cousteau in the = 1970's. Here is his reply:   Dr. Mr.Nisbet,   Thank you for your e-mail.   The Cousteau team didn't remove any debris from the Grand Staircase area. The had indeed observed several pipes which were later labeled as parts of the pipe organ since they could not explain their origin. However, the presence of the organ onboard is not confirmed by any known account. That is quite strange since it should have been quite a luxury for a hospital ship and it would have caused a huge impression to the crew and the medical orderlies.     Recently, I have discovered an unpublished account of a VAD nurse who discribes the public areas of the ship as "very bare" and the cabins as "very confortable". Other accounts also mention the luxury of the cabins but there is no word regarding the public areas. The only known photo taken on the Grand Staircase shows a simple white wall and no paneling.   I have serious doubts the the organ was ever installed on the Britannic. The pipes observed by the Cousteau team could be debris from the ship. There were several pipes hidden behind walls and bukheads that no longer exist.     However, the organ in Germany could be the one intended for the Britannic, since there is a link with the White Star Line and the newly discovered drawing presents an identical model installed on a ship clearly identified as the Britannic in her "commercial" version.     Best regards, Michail Michailakis   ------------   It might be helpful to see his new page on his site about the organ: http://www.hospitalshipbritannic.com/rms_adeck.htm   Regards,   John Nisbet
