churchmouse Posted April 25, 2007 Share Posted April 25, 2007 Dear members, I'm new here but have thoroughly enjoyed reading many of your posts. I was directed to read the amusing incidents topic which was great and through that I discovered Adrian Taylor who has been most helpful by sending me some excellent tales that had me laughing out loud. The reason I'm searching for organ stories is that I'm preparing a book for publication containing tales from the organ loft - or console -or at least something to do with the organ. Many of the tales already on this board are also about choirs - I think they would take a separate book, so at the moment I'm keeping it strictly to organs. So far I have approached about 266 organists from around the world to contribute (and am still writing frantically). People who will be contributing include Christopher Herrick, Dame Gillian Weir, Massimo Nosetti, Roman Krasnovsky, Gordon Stewart, Hans Hielscher, Robert Ampt, Jennifer Bate, and a host of others. But there are people like you and me who also have stunning stories from our organ lives that are too good to waste simply telling a narrow circle of friends over the dinner table. If anyone would like to tell me about them, do get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline for stories is July 31. No need to worry about the written English - that's my job! If you'd like more details go to nzorgan book stories - it has more about the project, lengths, what YOU get out of it and so on. If you can come up with more like those on the funny incidents thread such as from MusingMuso and AJT, I'll be thrilled. chirps from New Zealand, Jenny www.nzorgan.com Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
