(back) Subject: RE: Most Lucious Strings Poll From: michael.davis@rwolff.com Date: Fri, 16 Apr 1999 11:39:11 -0000   I nonminate the organ in the RC Cathedral in Gibraltar. The organ was built in 1917 by a Spaniard using Laukoff parts. It was then completely rebuilt in 1980 by NP Mander. It is well worth hearing and there is no doubt that the swell strings are extremely "lucious".   Michael Davis Guildford Surrey England   -----Original Message----- From: DRAWKNOB@aol.com [mailto:DRAWKNOB@aol.com] Sent: 16 April 1999 04:06 To: pipechat@pipechat.org Subject: Most Lucious Strings Poll     An open question to all on the list: What are the MOST lucious strings that   you have either heard or played on an organ & on which organ?   As for myself I would nominate any of the celestes/strings on the Harrison &   Harrison at Westminster Abbey.   John   "Pipe Up and Be Heard!"

(back) Subject: past/ current posts From: "VEAGUE" <dutchorgan@svs.net> Date: Fri, 16 Apr 1999 07:56:19 -0500   Hi List... Just a few comments on recent offerings... First, a Bach Halloween (en-masse) Scare-fest sounds neat. I remember back in the 70's, we'un theatre organists throughout the country vowed to play +ACI-When the Organ Played At Twilight+ACI- on the anniversary of Jesse Crawford's death. Tho I have to admit, when I play Bach, it ALWAYS sounds like Halloween +ACEAIQAh- Secondly, this transplanted Chicago boy is envious of all you Joisians and New Yawkeh's for all your fine instruments. I'm still in mourning over the loss of my beloved Chicago Stadium 6/54 Barton beast. Here in farm-land Indiana, there are several butchered church organs, no thanks to some unmentionable hacker in Indy. Thirdly, not all of us like plug-ins, but unfortunately they are a fact of life in the organ world. As for singleing out Wicks, I know they are a purists' nightmare, but for a country church congregation who has never heard a pipe organ, this little 2/4 in our church is the cats meow. Nothing should be a matter of 'my organ is better than your organ'. In conclusion, I for one would be thrilled at the opportunity to go east to see and hear some of these cathedral Skinners, Wannamaker hybreds, big-city monsters, et al. When I play church organ, the first thing I look for is the strings and play close harmony chord stuff. Some instruments even have Vox Humana's to add some gurgling lushness to celested Salicionals and Dulciana's.   Thank you all for letting me bend your (tuning) ear.   Rick dutchorgan+AEA-svs.net +ACI-Pump harder Gracie, the diaphone sounds like it needs Bean-O +ACEAIg-      
(back) Subject: RE: ACCH Organ (Was:Terminology, was A curiosity question-reply to"toaster" aspects!) From: David Scribner <david@blackiris.com> Date: Fri, 16 Apr 1999 08:02:01 -0500   Neil   This is just another one of the "URBAN LEGENDS" that has sprung up about the Convention Hall Midmer-Losh. The total horsepower for the 7 blowers, the 100" Compressor and the Generator adds up to 605HP but that is a drop in the bucket compared to the amount of electricity used when there was a convention with booths covering the floor of the Hall. They have never had to notify the electric company, or in the old days, the streetcar company when they turned the organ on. Its power consumption is probably a tiny fraction of the amount of power used to run all the devices in the various casinos up and down the boardwalk. When we started up the section of the organ we used for the recording sessions for the new CD there was no concern about "browning out" anything and there was no dimming of the lights in the Hall.   I do have to say that when you are near the blowers as they are starting you think you are on a runway at an airport next to a jet starting up! Get the CD and hear for yourself.   David   >Speaking of toasters friends, I have heard (though I don't have any >research to back it up) that if the entire Atlantic City Conv Center >Auditorium Organ were completely turned on (with all divisions, etc), >that it would toast the entire electric system on the Jersey Shore. > I certainly don't mean disrespect to the organ, only that I have heard >how much electricity it REALLY takes to crank that thing up. > Is there truth to this? > >--Neil Brown ********************** David Scribner Director of Communications Atlantic City Convention Hall Organ Society http://www.acchos.org/ info@acchos.org

(back) Subject: Re: Most Lucious Strings Poll From: Bruce Behnke <behnke@lvcm.com> Date: Fri, 16 Apr 99 06:21:08 -0700   With all my wealth of organ playing experience, I would have to say the it is the Gamba/Celeste pair on the new Cook Opus 7 being installed at All Saints Episcopal Church in Las Vegas. Actually the first time I played the Gamba it would celeste with every stop after being in a rental truck for 1200 miles. Both ranks are tapered, which surprised me in that I was expecting just a skinny rank of pipes. Now that they are tuned they are really yummy....   Bruce

(back) Subject: strings From: Grahame Davis <wineorg@azstarnet.com> Date: Fri, 16 Apr 1999 09:15:35 -0700   Dear Friends....   Here in Arizona, we have a small but very wonderful Aeolian-Skinner organ also finished by Roy Perry. It too has the most wonderful set of Violas Pomposa which waft around the building making love to the 4 seconds of reverberation. The Celeste rank goes down to low CC as indeed God and Ernest Skinner decreed. The bottom octave sounds for all the world like someone bowing a double bass! Donald Harrison's string voicer and personal finisher, Mr. Herb Pratt, retired to Arizona and for a while, looked after this organ. Although I have some of Mr. Pratt's tools, my Viola's just don't seem to have the sound of his. Pity eh?   Regards to all....Grahame in sunny Tucson

I know it is also available at another time but am not sure of the time. Check their web site at: http://www.organloft.com/   Please be aware that sometimes due to Network congestion the RealAudio can be a bit "spotty" but it is better than not getting some of these programs at all. Of course, the faster connection you have to the Net the better off you are.   Hope this helps   David

That organ had ALOT of strings. Carlton Michelle was a string voicer, so I was not suprised that the strings were so nice. The strings are a narrow scale, and I usually like broad strings.
