I didn't get to wander through the chambers, but did hear the dedication recital yesterday.   The instrument is indeed very smooth yet clear, very "English cathedral" sounding.   There are indeed four expression shoes: Choir, Swell, Solo, and Utility, in that order. The Celestial and Ethereal boxes can each be coupled to any of the four shoes. There is a Swell Master switch. (The expression shoe controls are "coupler-style" tilting tablets; the actual couplers are among the drawknobs.)   The Utility shoe controls the speed and depth of the Variable Tremulants "Register Crescendo to Utility" can be switched on or off; there's no dedicated crescendo pedal.   Judiciously excerpted from Jack Bethards' essay in the program book:   .... The single-minded determination to have an organ dedicated solely to the accompaniment of the Anglican service provided both an opportunity and a challenge. ... We believe that an organ properly designed for all of its accompanimental roles can also function admirably as a recital organ.   .... Another expressive feature unique to this instrument is the *variable tremulant*. ... Using digital technology and a special pulsator system (designed by factory manager Robert Rhoads), the organist can control tremulant speed and depth using a foot pedal, thus simulating the subtle variations characteristic of violin, flute, or oboe playing.   .... The *Celestiana* is a development of Schoenstein and Company which blends the sounds of string and flute in an undulating voice.... very narrow-scale, heavily tapered pipes with a wide mouth, producing a bright tonal character which is at the same time very soft and delicate. The *Symphonic Flute* was developed by us for this organ. ... encompasses the entire family of orchestral flutes....This stop employs both double mouth and double length harmonic pipes. ... the *Tuben*. Resembling the mellow sounds of Wagner Tubas (Tuben) ... we arranged for the reeds of the Celestial division to play in unison .... the Choir *Lieblich Gedeckt*, a direct copy of an example found on the famous Willis organ at St. Dominic's Priory in London. Its unusually colorful harmonic overtone series provides a charming sound which carries well but is at the same time quite soft. It is well-suited for both accompaniment and solo purposes.   .... The Swell *Stopped Diapason*, Pedal *Open Wood*, and Pedal *Bourdon* are all from the Mormon Tabernacle organ which was replaced in 1949 by an Aeolian-Skinner organ. The *French Horn* reed pipes are from a genuine E. M. Skinner rank. ....   .... The *Choir* division ... speaks through the grille over the Lady Altar. The *Great* division (manual II) is cantilevered over the choir stalls and projects well down the nave. The *Swell division (manual III) is immediately behind the Great and has expression shades facing both choir and nave. The *Solo* division (Manual IV) is nestled between Swell and Choir. The larger pipes of the *Pedal* division are placed horizontally above the Swell boxes, at the very top of the chamber. ...   .... Three of the organ's most dramatic and beautiful stops are still to be installed. The *Tuba Mirabilis*, a heroic solo trumpet, is to be located at the west end of the church, projecting a noble tone from a beautiful display of hooded pipes. ...   .... Like the practice of architecture, success in organ building comes from creative partnership with an encouraging client. It has been our good fortune to encounter that rare circumstance here.   Jack M. Bethards President and Tonal Director Schoenstein and Company   The Symphonic Flute is quad-length harmonic. It has two mouths. I saw one of the prototype pipes when the AIO toured the Schoenstein factory in San Francisco last summer. --   http://www.sover.net/~popel

All that organ in that little church ... where did they PUT it all??? The stoplist looks like a practice run for the big Schoenstein in Lincoln ... a lot of the same ideas (double swell boxes, etc. ... never thought we'd see THOSE built again ... grin!). Yep, it would certainly play their service, in SPADES. They must have gotten some grant money, and/or courted a VERY wealthy donor.   Speaking of, does anything have any experience pursuing grants for building pipe organs, and/or restoring historic instruments?   Regards,   BUD CLARK

(back) Subject: Mystery Reed From: David Scribner <david@blackiris.com> Date: Sun, 18 Oct 1998 17:54:44 -0500   Well, it isn't a complete mystery - but I'm trying to figure out the providence of a 16' Tuba that goes into a 8' Trumpet Harmonique. The 16' C has the name of "F.I. White - Voicer" stamped on the outside of the block and on the inside of the block is stamped "246-2". It's a BIG reed with the resonator diameter of about 10" at 16' C and the block is marked with "8" P" I haven't been able to put my hands on the 8' C pipe as of yet to find more information. Anyone have any ideas? Please reply privately.   Thanks   David  
(back) Subject: I finally get to hang up the headphones. From: Bob Conway <conwayb@post.queensu.ca> Date: Sun, 18 Oct 1998 22:01:56 -0400   This afternoon I bowed out of the broadcasting world of Kingston. It was not the easiest thing in the world to do, but it became necessary as I now find that I cannot read the LP labels!   I made the classic mistake of cue-ing up the wrong side of an LP, but as there were two works on the LP, one on each side, and I had intended that both of them were in the programme, it was of no great consequence, for I simply let it play through, and then admitted my error!   However, my "swan song" was completed by Virgil Fox at the Riverside Church NYC, and at the very end, - "Cos it ain't over until the lady has sung!" Maureen Forrester was the lady! No disrespect meant!   So ends an era of something like fifteen years of organ programmes, now our Kingston listeners will have to listen to Bonnie Beth Derby on Sunday nights at 8.00 pm from PBR Syracuse, NY. She does a wonderful programme each week, and my listeners will find that she is far better than I!   Thank you all for your good wishes, I shall still be around on pipechat-l and organchat-l - as well as on IRC on Monday, Tuesday and Friday evenings at 9.00 pm. Maybe we can get ourselves wired for sound on those IRC nights.   Bob Conway          
(back) Subject: Re: I finally get to hang up the headphones. From: "Bonnie Beth Derby" <orge@dreamscape.com> Date: Sun, 18 Oct 1998 22:37:12 -0400   Greetings to all on PipeChat,   I have to add my $.02 worth to this post. Kingston, Ontario has lost a very special person to the airwaves. Bob has hosted a radio shift for many years and I feel that when a familiar voice leaves, it is like loosing a good friend. I thank Bob for the very kind comment. I question the thought that ``I do a better job.......'' because anyone who produces and hosts an organ and choral program is an oasis to the listeners and lovers of great choral classics and organ compositions on the radio. Bob Conway was that ``oasis'' to the people of Kingston.   However, we on Pipechat are indeed very fortunate to have Bob with us and for that I thank God.   Yes Bob, a door does close -- but the window is open wide!   Best regards,   Bonnie Beth Derby Syracuse, New York orge@dreamscape.com ---------- > From: Bob Conway <conwayb@post.queensu.ca> > Subject: I finally get to hang up the headphones. > Date: Sunday, October 18, 1998 10:01 PM > > This afternoon I bowed out of the broadcasting world of Kingston.
