Plenty of Roman Catholic places have larger baptistries these days. Our renovated RC Cathedral of St. John in Milwaukee features a nice one, and a suburban RC church near our house has a nice big pool and makes a point of baptism by immersion as the main parish practice.   On the other hand, there is one story of a place in Arizona where a new priest took over a place where a nice renovation had included a flowing-water baptismal pool, and he turned the baptistry into a planter, saying "What does baptism have to do with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass?" (Without getting into the deeper theological arguments, the real answer to this question is: "Everything!", so Father was way off base here - send him back to seminary!)   To keep this on topic - both the places I cite have pipe organs. The cathedral has a noted instrument by Robert Noehren from the late 60's (gallery), and they're putting in a Nichols and Simpson instrument in *addition* in the front.   http://www.stjohncathedral.org/tourmap.htm   Here's the baptistry with the Ruckpositiv of the Noehren organ:   http://www.stjohncathedral.org/tbapt.htm   Here's the front organ (case only right now) and console that will control both organs   http://www.stjohncathedral.org/tmm.htm   How's that for combining topics?   John Seboldt Milwaukee, WI

Starting at the end of January, we at Nichols & Simpson began the installation of the front organ in that case. And front organ will be used for the first time on Easter Sunday. The front console does control both organs now that the front case isn't being used for storage.   Joe Nichols and Wayne Simpson are up in Milwaukee doing the tonal finishing and they should be finished with that on Tuesday according to Joe. If you get a chance why don't you stop in any meeting them before they leave?   David Scribner   Technician Nichols & Simpson, Inc., Organbuilders Little Rock, AR

I've been laying a bit low in the organ world for a few months so have missed out on some of the buzz.   But there you have it folks. A lot more joyful noise in Milwaukee. Enjoy!   John Seboldt
