(back) Subject: Calvary Chamades From: rmb10@mindspring.com (Monty Bennett) Date: Sat, 20 Jun 1998 06:57:34 -0500   O.K., to settle the debate on this, I'll add my 2 cents, having been the Assoc. Minister of Music/Organist there for over 2 years, until I decided to become a mortician and the church let Dan Miller go from his position as Minister of Music.......   There are 5 sets of chamades: Left Ancillary Case 1 rank Cor de Gabriel (plays at 16, 8, 4)   Right Ancillary Case 1 rank Herald Trumpet (plays at 16, 8, 4)   Main Organ Case 3 ranks Millenial Trumpet 16 (full length!!!) Millenial Trumpet 8 Millenial Trumpet 4   But....there are also 3 ranks of solo trumpets in the enclosed Bombarde division and the unenclosed Tuba in the Solo.   So, there are only 5 RANKS of chamades, but 9 STOPS.   It is a pity that the organ doesn't get used like it should now, since the new pastor doesn't like the organ (it's too "churchy"). All he wants is contemporary music using a band, so the organ plays background music and Prelude/Postlude.     Monty Bennett

(back) Subject: German's Festive Trumpet Tune From: rnickel@itol.com Date: Sat, 20 Jun 1998 09:05:19 -0500   It's true, we all long for a chamade to give justice to German's "Festive Trumpet Tune." However, just cuz I don't got one don't mean I'm not gonna play it. I use Swell 8s through 1 1/3 against the Trumpet, Mixture, Principal 8, and Flute 8. This gives a hefty enough sound to carry that melody.   BTW ... Dan Miller has a Calvary Moller dedication CD with "Festive Trumpet Tune" on it. (Maybe that's where I assumed the piece was written for the organ dedication.) At any rate, the tune is great, the organ is great, and it's a beautiful day in Wisconsin.   Bob Nickel

There's a Service Music section with numbers marked "S-###" and a Hymn section with numbers marked *###.* The pew edition has both sections under one cover, but for flexibility in accompaniment, and to keep the organists' copy from being unmanageably hefty on sometimes small music racks, has been divided into separate Service Music and Hymns volumes.   Ken Sybesma

(back) Subject: Mixtures From: <Prestant16@aol.com> Date: Sat, 20 Jun 1998 14:40:41 EDT   I really would like to know what others think about the high pitched mixtures in the organ. I've seen many organs with a Scharf or other mixture pitched at 1' or 2/3' as the only mixture in the swell. I think that a mixture that adds on to another mixture would be fine, but when there is no other mixture is a Scharf really appropriate? And what about the volume of the mixtures? I've read specifications of organ that have a XX-XXII Mixture in the great and somthing like a XVII Mixture in the pedal. I was told that the pipes in the XX-XXII mixture are scaled VERY small and that there are about 3 or 4 differant scaled pipes to each pitch: One for the foundation of the pitch, another for brightness, another like a string to cut through the room etc..... Is the same effect attained by modern organbuilders by having a loud IV mixtre or a high pitched Cymbal that is loud?     -William

(back) Subject: St. Louis Cathedral Kilgen Organ From: <ScottFop@aol.com> Date: Sat, 20 Jun 1998 17:10:19 EDT   In a message dated 98-06-20 16:30:14 EDT, you write:   << It is unashamedly romantic, but its last enhancement changed that somewhat. John Romeri, director of archdiocesan music, director of music and organist for the St. Louis Cathedral (whew!) had a few (maybe six or so?) ranks of minor diapason chorus added   How did the "romanticism" go away to a degree as described? With the additions- are you speaking of 8' tone or complete principal choruses with new mixtures?       when he had the Kilgen console replaced with a drawknob console. Now, this brings me to my next two questions: A) why did he do that? B) how do you feel about the removing of the Kilgen "unique" wing tab console and replacing it with a drawknob?   True- the new drawknob is beautiful indeed, but that Kilgen console was DEFINITELY unique. St. Pat's original gallery console and the Shrine of the Little FLower in Royal Oak, MI had the same thing- 4 manual winged stop-key consoles upon their original installations. St. Pat's now has twin 5 manual consoles BUT the Shrine (where I begin my tenure as Organist-Choirmaster week after next) STILL has its original, behemoth, TWIN 4 manual, winged stop-key consoles. (YAY!)   In fact- for those of you who read the lengthy post I sent last week about the Shrine's Kilgen with the specs and historical facts, they originally contracted for a 4 manual drawknob for the gallery (main) organ and a 2 manual stopkey for the antiphonal organ, but as we see in the letter from Jan 1934 from Fr. Coughlin to Kilgen- for SOME reason (thankfully)- he ordered TWO twin consoles- EACH to be able to control the entire resources of the instrument. And- they are STILL there and fully operational thank heavens!   Anyway- I would like input on this......   Does anyone know of any other notable large Kingen installations anywhere in the USA?   How close to original is the installation(s)?   and what condition are they in?   Scott F.
