Guilmant, Karg-Elert, Sain-Saens, Reinhard are just a few of the names. Good luck! Staffan Thuringer       --------------------------------- Find local movie times and trailers on Yahoo! Movies.

The pastor made the declaration that a digital organ would not be = considered AT ALL. While we are having digital stops for the Celestial division in the ceiling, and for 32' stops (because I wanted more real pipe ranks in the manuals), the organ is complete and can stand on it's own as a complete = PIPE organ without using the digital stops.   There have been no DMA organists at this church, just well trained = musicians who know the difference.     >My favorite electronic organ is the Hammond, esp those concert models = with >the concave pedal board and 32' pedal stops (with Leslie, of course). = Throw on >that vibrato in mid-modulation, and OH MY!!   We have one of those at my church...it's quite fun.

(back) Subject: Off-Topic: from ELCA List From: "Karl Moyer" <kmoyer@marauder.millersville.edu> Date: Sat, 07 May 2005 14:57:31 -0400   East Waynesville Baptist Church in North Carolina is making the national news by going official with the doctrine that being a conservative Republican is required for salvation. As we all know, political registration in the first century was determined by choice of animal, and Jesus rode an elephant into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. See http://www.truthout.org/docs_2005/050705Z.shtml.   I was really surprised that this would happen outside of California. It has long been the practice of evangelical churches here in San Diego County that if you're a Democrat, you hit the road. This of course is because of "moral issues". Evangelicals are required to support "moral candidates" like George W Bush under whose leadership abortions have increased by 25% in the nation and who has instituted a reign of terror against the innocent civilians of Iraq. And you have to support "moral candidates" like porn star Arnold Schwarzenegger who has been accused by the Los Angeles Times of sexually molesting 16 women.   It's one more reminder that there are only two wings in the Republican Party, the Pharisees and the Sadducees.   Robert DeVries San Diego
