Tony very kindly forwarded me an email . . . with in passing the following news:
Quote
It is becoming increasingly difficult to house even excellent            instruments. Only a couple of days ago I learned of a Model Y            Orchestrelle in Golders Green, fully restored, 10 full ranks            plus bass, honey oak casework, with matching stool and a            blower in a matching cabinet, which was taken into the garden,            chopped up and burned. This was within the last fortnight; The            owner, a wealthy man, had become tired of it.

Organ preservation needs a higher profile!

Is it enthusiasm for the organ or merely this forum in death throws?

A report has been received asking for this topic to be removed.

It is a matter of interest relating to an instrument worthy of preservation and about which the future appears to hold question marks and has spawned a balanced discussion.

What might be the reasons?

Organs in danger / Re: Farewell to the Schwab pipe organ...
« on: March 12, 2013, 12:23:33 PM »
Dear Eric


You deserve a gold medal for the tireless addition of news reports to the forum and as a result you've succeeded in saving an organ!


Hope it goes well on ebay. If you happen to be able to track down the listing, through this forum perhaps we might achieve a wider arena for its sale.


Perhaps this is not only about organs but also raising consciousness about people's environment - what they don't value but which might be useful or enjoyable to someone else, about thinking about others and thinking of how they can allocate resources at their disposal, how they can be useful to others. This is life! Organs are often housed in buildings dedicated to the "God of Life" . . . and in this way, organs can lead to more fruitful life. . .


Best wishes and many thanks

Hi!


Martin Renshaw is currently not fully connected to the net so has asked me to post details of the following.


If the instrument has been destroyed already, then I hope that people will be angry enough to send letters to all those indicated below.

IL FAUT SAUVER l’ORGUE d’ABBEVILLE ! UN CHEF D’ŒUVRE DE L’ART FRANCAIS

Le XXème siècle n’a pas épargné Abbeville qui, lors des deux conflits mondiaux, a été durement touchée et en grande partie détruite. L’église Saint Vulfran fut l’un des édifices les plus atteints pendant les bombardements du 20 mai 1940. Ce jour-là, la collégiale vit le martyr, ses voûtes s’effondrent, ses vitraux explosent, les stalles, l’autel et ses orgues remarquables brûlent.

En conséquence, l’orgue de l’église Saint Jacques d’Abbeville, construit au début du XXème siècle par le réputé facteur d’orgues français Charles Mutin, successeur du célèbre Cavaillé-Coll, est l’un des rares instruments rescapés de cette période. C’est une œuvre d’art unique, construite par l’un des plus grands facteurs d’’orgues français du début du XXème siècle. Cet instrument de musique a miraculeusement survécu à deux guerres.

Doté d’un décor somptueux (magnifique buffet néo-gothique), d’une partie musicale et technique de qualité, il est dans son domaine aussi remarquable et précieux que les œuvres majeures des peintres, sculpteurs et architectes français du début du XXème siècle.

Pour des raisons de sécurité, l’église Saint Jacques, fermée depuis plusieurs années, va être détruite.
Cette destruction a déjà commencé.

Chef d’œuvre en péril, élément majeur du patrimoine français, au même titre que les œuvres de Camille Claudel et Alfred Mannessier qui enrichissent les collections du musée d’Abbeville, cette œuvre d’art mérite que tout soit entrepris pour la sauver et la conserver, comme on le ferait dans ces circonstances pour toute oeuvre d’art.

Nous demandons à toutes les parties prenantes et les responsables de prendre la mesure de ce chef d’œuvre et de mettre en œuvre tous les moyens possibles pour sa préservation et sa transmission aux générations futures.[/font]

This is the thread which has been extracted from
http://www.organmatters.com/index.php/topic,1561.msg7391.html#msg7391
as it raises significant issues for the survival of the organ . . . and the buildings within which organs are commonly found.

Hi!


A response from Eric in the US is so profoundly important to organs that it has been split into a new thread - http://www.organmatters.com/index.php/topic,1581.0.html


Are organs to be the scapegoat for the intellectual vacuum within the church that has driven away thinking and unthinking people alike?

We have heard today that this instrument has sadly been converted to Equal Temperament.

This thread may therefore be moved to the section for Organ Gravestones and Memorial Plaques

Mods - please remove this if I'm not supposed to post it - it's my sale.

Why not? Anything enthusing about any aspect of organs may here be promoted without shame . . .


It would be great if pipe organ builders might showcase their latest work, creations, restorations and even repairs.

Thank you muchly for that Tony!

I also realised today why Makins wouldnt disclose to me the info - everytime I go somewhere and tell the church how rare and wonderful their electrone is, im potentially losing them a sale!


This is a thread which is substantially duplicated on another thread in parallel and therefore spam.


Other visitors to the site do not wish to wade through stuff which may be of marginal interest to them twice in duplicate.

Organ building and maintenance / Help and or advice to move an organ
« on: April 20, 2012, 08:39:21 PM »
Hi!


I have just received the following message from member "Gregory":
Quote
I am the new owner of the Osmond organ from Methodist Church. I got 2 weeks to get it out there. I am 30+ years old "tennager" but know nothing about removing the organs. Would you be able to give me a hand with it and tell me how to do it? Is it really so simple? Company i could hire would cost a fortune, i would preffer to put that money into restoration. Thanks a lot for any help!

Please can anyone give advice and possibly even volunteer? Perhaps AOC - wouldn't this get you started?

This is certainly a simple enough instrument for an amateur move and rebuild. Even a teenager could do it . . .

Dear AOC


I am sorry to say that your post above demonstrates your inability to provide objective comment. Your views are hampered by lack of practical experience in playing and by lack of training in the practical art of organ building.


I imagine that the moderator who approved your post who I know has been trying carefully to guide you was simply exasperated at the time your posts you are occupying in your contributions to the forum.


Any organist, in contrast to an observer critic, knows that a 7 rank organ is both limited as is the repertoire you can play on it. In this context your jibe about "sufficiently imaginative hands" and emboldened is patently on the face of it absurd, and demonstrating a wholly unnecessary venomous streak wholly inappropriate to the gentlemanly world of organists and their christian context. In terms of loving your neighbour as yourself it is far from the mark.


A member of this forum has pointed you to a practical course of research in which you could do considerably more good than wasting your time on the computer making yourself feel good in criticising others with many more years of accomplishments than yourself and this includes not only players but renowned organ builders and their instruments. I am aware of one post that a moderator forwarded to me in which you rubbished an instrument and a builder which was a landmark of its time which made people _think_ and which after 30 years good service in a continuous teaching environment needs attention to its mechanics.


Perhaps it is of no coincidence that I was this morning on the point of buying
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Rules-Wealth-Personal-Code-Prosperity/dp/0273710192
as a present for someone I know and saw a review quoting the following:
Quote
"So how well do you know yourself? Pretty well? Not at all? Vaguely? We think we know ourselves until we come to give up smoking, lose weight,   get fit, get rich. And then we realise we are lazier, have less willpower, less determination, make less effort, get too easily dissuaded,   fall by the wayside too readily.
If I wanted to tuck you under my wing and make you wealthy, the first thing I would need to know is: 'Do you have what it takes to be   wealthy? Are you determined enough? Will you work hard enough? Will you   stick at it? Do you have backbone? Stamina? Guts? Relentless focus?'   You see, if you don't, the chances are you won't succeed."
Substitute here the concept of "wealth" for "nice person" - "one with whom others can work" - the three concepts are often synonymous.

Another rule is that being a "nice person" (or being wealthy, to which it is obvious you aspire) is a consequence, not a reward.

That concept is powerful.

Do you have what it takes to be (xxx)? Are you determined enough? Will you work hard enough? Will you stick at it? Do you have backbone? Stamina? Guts? Relentless focus?' You see, if you don't, the chances are you won't succeed. 

I have sent to you privately rules for thought management to work upon based upon the problems that have been from time to time publicly apparent with your posts and for a time you appeared to be working on them. All of us on  the management team of this forum wish to see you succceed and use your talents well.For this reason I am asking the moderators not to approve any of your posts until you have made twelve posts of a nature which demonstrate objective perception and gentlemanly goodwill.

This post is public as part of the narrative, but should be put into the administrators archive within three days.

If we fail to do so, please can anyone report this post to admin to do so.

Believers' Corner / Re: What would you do with £25M?
« on: March 08, 2012, 08:53:22 PM »
you only need to talk to a city banker (and I've known a few) to realise what a cavalier attitude they take. If we removed or heavily reduced taxation, there would be no money to run our schools, libraries, public parks, civic concert halls(!), National Health Service (and let's not argue about that, saying the NHS shouldn't exist as some do ought to remove your right to a British passport).


This thread is not a soapbox upon which to spout about what is wrong, but to put oneself in the position of the responsibility of the possession of a tidy sum with which one can do quite a lot but not so much as to be able to do much more than . . . inspire.


By doing this, then others might contemplate doing likewise with their resources and those with even more resources can apply those to the bigger picture . . .


So can you do it? This is a mental exercise more widely appropriate to more than organists, but all organists usually have an organ to include in such ideas . . .

Hi!


In view of recent vacillations reported in the press about taxation, this thread really might be worth pursuing and championing. If our culture was to see how personal wealth could be used to greater public benefit resulting not from coercion but from enthusiasm to achieve greater good, then taxation and the need for it would be significantly unnecessary. Do we really have to abrogate our responsibilities of christian spending to big government to do it for us?


It's great to see more members joining the forum: can we keep ideas here flowing? Proposals here to curate a large sum of money are allowed to include an organ . . . !
