It seems to me that O Fortuna is used frequently in battle scenes of movies, many of which the kids see.   I also agree that "get 'em while they're young" is important. I don't know about you all, but I got much of my exposure to Opera listening to the AM radio fading in and out while riding in the car with my dad. (Happy Father's Day!) Kids at school were always amazed when I could geuss (75%, 80%, or who knows what accuracy) the composers of classical music. They weren't even sure of the singers on the "top 40"   Carl Orff never bothered me, I never really thought about the words until much later. It's still beautiful music, and no more evil than "Ring around the rosies."   On 6/18/05, Walter Greenwood <walterg@nauticom.net> wrote: > That touches a raw nerve for me, Dr. Dan.

Orff's Carmina Burana has a part written FOR children's (boys, girls or both) choir. Before blasting off on a subject, please make sure you know what you are talking about. When in doubt, hit DELETE!

(back) Subject: 1920 Kimball Angelus Temple From: "Donald R. Resor" <h100series@pacbell.net> Date: Sun, 19 Jun 2005 21:57:01 -0700   I was lucky enough to have recently been called out to do a repair on Angelus Temple's Hammond Organ. While there, my pipe organ associate had the pleasure trying out the newly refurbished 1920 Kimball which resides = in this church. They did a wonderful job on restoring this console as you = can see. You can see a picture of my associated Roger Hardesty sitting at the =   restored console here:   http://www.fortunecity.com/business/huntsman/1056/tone_wheel_and_tone_cabin= et_service_company____los_angeles_.htm   The Kimball certainly has some gorgeous voices. Sadly the room is so dead =   from the acoustic dampening material, it doesn't seem to have enough power =   to fill the room unless you have many stops pulled at the same time. We also noticed there seemed to be a mis-adjustment in the regulator as it really sagged terribly when certain stops were pulled out with string = voices.         Donald R. Resor Jr. T. W. & T. C.
