Add a celeste and an Oboe perhaps, and you'll be able to play most anything. Even if you don't add stops, it still looks like a good instrument.   I wish I could get my organ playing someday.   Jan VanDerStad

From: "Brian Graham" <briangraham@sunflower.com> Date: Sat, 4 Nov 2000 21:05:19 -0000   Hi all.   I've been doing a lot of tuning lately (the tuned ranks sound great now!) The only drawback to the tuning is that I don't have a celeste so some of the warmth is disappearing as I tune.   I have two fairly soft flutes, Melodia and Stop'd. Diapason.   The Stopped Diapason is the softest stop in the organ (until I get the = echo division set up) except in the bass, where it's somewhat more assertive = than the Melodia, which is otherwise just a bit louder.   How about if I tuned one or the other a little flat or sharp?   Which stop would be best left "in tune"?   If I do this, will I be violating some generally agreed upon function for these stops?   (bear in mind that the stops of the organ are 8,8,8,8,8,8,4, and when all = of the organ is set up, will be 16,16,16,8,8,8,8,8,8,8,8,8,8,8,8,8,8,4)
