Up here in = Canada, they are not considered a premier builder, and never have been.   I'm not sure they even build new organs anymore. I do understand they do some maintenance and tuning, and some re-building.   But they never had the name up here that say Casavant or L'etournou, Wilhelm, or Wolff have.   Arie V.

She was my first = teacher, and quite a character. She owns a large collection of harpsichords, clavichords, and a virginal by William Dowd, all rented to the University for $1 a year, plus a little 6 stop/1 manual Flentrop positive that she purchased when the university purchased their Flentrop concert organ - = that is housed at the local Episcopal church. They just put in the big = Holtkamp in the university auditorium when I arrived as a green freshman in 1980 - large instrument that kept about 6 notes of the former E. M. Skinner opus 779 32' Bourdon. The 779 console was stored at the local fire department, the great and pedal at a university storage building, and the rest of the organ entombed in the other three chambers. Even in 1980 it seemed sad = that the Skinner was not restored, but then, such is life. At least most of the pipework went into the organ at the Advent. Speaking of the Advent, that = is another story - the church had the opus 779 console completely redone, = then when it was delivered, the dean declared it liturgically unsuitable as it took up so much floor space in the chancel. The cathedral spent over 1 million on a project to create a large 100+ rank organ from various = sources with a local tech on retainer, then ended up having Moller re-conceive the entire project.     Yes, I forgot about the Letourneau, but the chapel is the real jewel there = - the organ is nice too!     I used to drive by Independent Pres and warmly call it "God's house." The choral music there is simply outstanding. One of the best mixed (men + women) choirs in the country.     I've not seen 16th Street Baptist. I understand it is a Pilcher that was once very badly rebuilt by a local person with good intentions but no knowledge, then rebuilt again. I've seen the specs - I don't think it = would be worth seeing from a musical standpoint - but for historical purposes, yes.     Of course there are the instruments at other local large churches by Schantz, Moller, Kenneth Jones, Schlicker, Austin, etc. Too numerous to mention, but some of them quite nice. Lots of churches in the south!     Out here in the 'burbs of San Francisco, we are not blessed with a great selection of organs - lots of 3/20 Mollers from the '50's, and a lot of small Wicks. But, there are a handful of truly excellent organs by Beckerath, Visser-Rowland, Murray Harris, Fisk, etc.     +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++   Randy Terry   Music Minister   The Episcopal Church of St. Peter   Redwood City, California   _____   From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org] On Behalf Of Desiree' Sent: Friday, May 27, 2005 8:23 AM To: PipeChat Subject: "Bama" Organs (Was 5th Mans)     Randy Terry seems to be the sourse for this...so please, Randy...feel free to chime on in!     Is Betty Louise Lumby still alive?
