There are 16 songs there currently. Access the site by going to http://hendricksonorgan.com and clicking on Music. Two instruments are featured: the 2/44 Opus 45 (1979) at First Lutheran in St. Peter, MN and the 4/70 organ at the Wayzata Community Church (UCC). I will update the lists when the rest of the files are uploaded. All files are CD quality and are rather large, but the music will stream. Have fun and happy listening!   Paul Soulek Webpage Administrator Hendrickson Organ Company     _________________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?

(back) Subject: Principal bass synthesis From: "Larry Chace" <rlc1@etnainstruments.com> Date: Fri, 09 Feb 2001 13:29:07 -0500   "Jon Calvo" <jcalvo@mail.state.tn.us> asked about the possibility of using =   a Haskelled Violin bass on higher pressure to create a principal sound.   In general, with almost any flue pipework, raising the pressure will also tend to increase the brightness; the upper harmonics will get stronger. Haskell bass pipes should behave the same way.   *Lowering* the pressure will tend to reduce the brightness, and that might =   be more of a match to a principal sound. Of course, it might then be too = soft!   One possibility might be to use the Violin pipes, playing in unison with, say, an 8' stopped flute. They two *might* (maybe, perhaps) combine to give you something that would work ok with the rest of the principal rank.   Yet another possibility is to use the 8' stopped flute bass along with a = 4' principal or maybe an open 4' flute (a left-over Melodia?). You really have to try what you have available and see what seems to work best.   Good luck!   Larry Chace

(back) Subject: 1/2 length resonators From: "Bob Loesch" <rrloesch@jps.net> Date: Fri, 09 Feb 2001 17:55:31 -0800   A question for the voicers of the list: I have an opportunity to obtain a set of 16' Tuba boots with no resonators. I have in mind making a set of 1/2 length wood resonators for it. In a rank with the 8' octave full length and 16' octave 1/2 length, how much larger in scale should the 16' 1/2-length resonators be, assuming normal theatre-type 'tuba horn' voicing?     Regards, Bob, in beautiful Lake County, California, USA NAWCC 140818 http://www.jps.net/rrloesch alternate mailto:cuckoobob@eudoramail.com
