(back) Subject: Jardine & Carlton Mitchel From: "Judy A. Ollikkala" <71431.2534@compuserve.com> Date: Tue, 26 Jul 2005 09:41:40 -0400   Here is an excerpt from an article written by Matthew-Michael Bellochio in 1993 which I used in my 2000 Worcester Chapter Organ Crawl at Taunton's = St. Thomas Episcopal, where we also went on the recent OHS Convention. Bellochio states that the organ built in 1899 bore the nameplate of = Jardine & Son, but was actually designed and voiced by Carlton C. Mitchel. This took place after the 1866 Hook which had been electrified in 1893 by Hope-Jones Electric Organ Co. of England and fitted with an electric = blower and a moveable all-electric console, the first one in America, burned in 1898 when an ice storm in January caused a short circuit in the organ's power line. Mitchell came to Anerica in 1886 and joined with the Jardine firm in 1897. He and the St. Thomas organist-choirmaster Walter Clemson knew each other earlier as Mitchel had done the Hope-Jones electric work = in 1893. This was the last major organ to leave the Jardine factory, the firm was dissolved in 1899. This organ had tubular-pneumatic action until 1930.

(back) Subject: Richard Morris From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@direcway.com> Date: Tue, 26 Jul 2005 19:35:51 -0500   You may contact Spivey Hall and see if they still have CDs for sale - that is where I obtained my copy a couple years ago. Since Morris is the resident organist there, you can also ask about sources for the CD. Or you can do a Google search for the production company that promotes Richard's recordings to see if copies are still available. I've forgotten the name. A search the other day brought up an interview with Morris on Gregorian chant, and I believe production information on his recordings was listed at the end.   If you can't find it on a search, a private e-mail to me will give me a little more incentive to fight the exterior 100 degree heat index and find out for you (the CD is in my car).   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com     -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org] On Behalf Of Anthony Nichols   Does anyone know where I can buy a copy of Organ Masterpieces from France and Germany by Richard Morris?

(back) Subject: OHS Monday July 18 From: "Judy A. Ollikkala" <71431.2534@compuserve.com> Date: Tue, 26 Jul 2005 23:29:03 -0400   This was the New Bedford Day, this city was the whaling capitol of the world in the early to mid 1800's. It was very warm, hazy and foggy but with a breeze. The first church visited was St. Andrew's Episcopal with the oldest organ in the city, a George Stevens of 1852 2M. G-compass tracker, moved in 1977 from NH. The case was restored to its original = style after the move with the design set by Matthew Bellocchio. Joyce Painter Rice ably demonstrated the instrument. Next we went to the North Baptist Church with the only surviving Charles Chadwick 1901 Opus 1, a bright-sounding 2M. tracker played by an OHS favorite Tim Drewes. He chose a nautical theme for his interesting selections, including two lusty whaling tunes sung by Fred Jodry, a multi-talented musician, conductor, organist, and singer. St. Anthony de Padua was next, the architect was Joseph Vennes of = Montreal, Quebec, Canada who designed St. Joseph Oratory there, this is a huge RC parish with a steeple 250 feet high, church 241 feet long, altar with a 75 ft. high diorama depicting The Vision of St. Anthony, 5,500 light bulbs around the sanctuary with 24 larger than life-size angels, some with trumpets, many beautiful stained glass windows, Stations of the Cross etc. and a 1912 4M 60 rank Casavant Pipe Organ from St. Hyacinth, Quebec, Canada. The organ sounded like most if not all of the ranks were operating, they were not prior to this event, and Tim Smith was at the console in the second balcony. A small choir organ is also down front which can only be registered from down front. A side note--Credit must be given to several organ repair/rebuilding = people who spent hours getting some of these instruments in good working order = for this convention. Besides the Co-Chairs of the Convention, among them were Daniel and Norman Lemieux of Attleboro and Syracuse NY, who worked on St. Anthony's, also St. Anne's Casavant and St. Joseph's Welcome Adams organ = in Fall River. Normand Gingras, organist of St. Anne's since 1958 also was involved. Brian Mattias of Potter-Rathbun Organ Co. worked on the Swansea and Fall River organs. Bruce Gardzina restored the New Bedford Methodist Hook to its former condition and got the New Bedford Roosevelt in playable condition. Barry Turley whom I met at Fairhaven Memorial Unitarian and = has an organ business in Fall River helped with that organ. Lorenz Maycher = and his organ tuner from PA at Fall River Congregational also should get credit, and Bob Roche with his knowledge and advice. Thanks to Dick Hill for some of this information. An interesting note by Dick Hill mentions that the W. Adams organ in St. Joseph Church, Fall River has an extremely stiff action. He said it was much stiffer than Mechanics Hall in = Worcester MA. He tried out St. Joseph's before the convention and could only get half of the pedals to sound as he wasn't pressing them hard enough. Kim Hess had played the Mechanics Hall Worcester organ several years ago. = Dick said she was a very strong person who could handle the W. Adams organ, so he asked her to play it. She did a great job. Back to St. Anthony's -- first off, after comments and introductions of the pastors, Tim accompanied the Gounod "Sanctus" with Michael Calmes of Boston, tenor soloist. He was singing from the second balcony, unmiked, and Tom Murray was directing we the congregation from the top step of the altar down front, = in the choir parts which were handed out earlier. What a moving = presentation! Then Tim played Guilmant's March Funebre and Chant Seraphime. Then Mr. Calmes became Narrator from down front (with mike) for = Saint-Saens "Carnival of the Animals", with Tim displaying the various stops on this great instrument. I can tell you that the Swan section melody was done on the solo Choir Bourdon. Then we sang the Christmas hymn "Angels We have Heard on High". Introducing this, Tim said "if you are wondering why we are singing this, JUST LOOK UP!"   Since now at 1pm I have to go meet my daughter and 3 grandchildren flying in from Illinois, I will finish this day, afternoon and evening in New Bedford later.
