Fair Organ Plays Backwards in Ray Bradbury Story
By Philippe Rouillé

Dear MMDs,  Many thanks for your answers and precisions about the Ray
Bradbury story, although I do not have yet the answer to my question:
in his novel, how does Ray Bradbury name the organ?  (I have not the
English version).

Interesting that Disney tried this kind of Horror movie (and the book
already is often frightening, and the organ music never really joyful!).

But I am glad to see from your reactions about books of music forward
and backward and Limonaire and Frigidaire, that these last days of 2002
bring some humour, and I hope it will remain the same in 2003!

(That reminds me of Mozart and his famous piece which remains the same
when you turn the sheet of music upside down, and the "crab canon" by
J.S. Bach.  See arrangements of theses pieces for guitar at a good
musical site:  Look at "free
music", and "musical curiosities".

With best regards, and of course best wishes,

Philippe Rouille  (Paris, France)
