(back) Subject: FSU School of Music From: Will Scarboro <whs1325@garnet.acns.fsu.edu> Date: Wed, 25 Aug 1999 08:18:25 -0400 (EDT)     I just registered for classes yesterday. School doesn't start until next monday. This is the first semester that I've been able to take all music classes. Most of the stuff is pretty normal: Theory etc. I am also taking a few music history classes including organ lit. and also a class called Technology in teaching music, in addition to my organ lessons.   As far as the Holtkamp goes, I have not had a chance to play it since my audition back in March. But as I remember it, I never did have to use the mixture at all because the 2's were bright enough! I never got to the trumpet but I expect that it was loud! A really disapointing thing is that the strings are very weak. But this may be due to the fact that the Vox Celeste is tuned to beat very slowly with the Gamba. I would have prefured the Skinner over the Holtkamp but things didn't work out that way.   I have not had a chance to try out the pratice organs yet but two are by Holtkamp and one by Wicks. We also have access to the fine Taylor and Boody organ at 1st Pres. which by the way replaced a re-worked Aeolian-Skinner. I'll certainly keep in touch and let you know about what's happening here at FSU.   It is certainly nice to be able to play pipes again after having Allens for so long.   Will Scarboro American Municipal Pipe Organ Research Project 1996 OHS E.

(back) Subject: Need "Goin'Home" From: prswank@impop.bellatlantic.net Date: Wed, 25 Aug 1999 12:49:50 -0400   I have been asked to sing and play a song during a funeral on Friday (only two days away), entitled something like "Comin' Home" or Goin" Home". The only one I can think of like that is "Goin' Home" from the New World Symphony by Dvorak. I have found that one in an old book, but the title there is "Massa Dear", which of course will not do. The family has heard it sometime in the past and can't help me out to find it.   Any idea where I can find Goin' Home by Dvorak with some realistic lyrics for a funeral? Thanks in advance. In the meantime, I will be surfing the net for it, myself.   Paul R. Swank Retired Church Organist Pulled Back in to service.

Think horizontally instead of vertically. A warm sound, more orchestral than brilliant. This is especially the case, I think, for the Prelude and Cantilene. The Scherzando might be a little brighter. I play the Cantilene for a lot for weddings (along with Widor slow movements), and register 8' exclusively for it. I think of the Prelude as a fairly soft piece, actually, for most of its length.   Randy Runyon organist, Immanuel Presbyterian Cincinnati, Ohio      
(back) Subject: Re: FSU School of Music From: Bud/Burgie <budchris@earthlink.net> Date: Wed, 25 Aug 1999 10:42:18 -0700   Will - in my day one of the practice organs was the Echo organ from the concert hall Skinner, which had its own two-manual console ... in the = original installation in the main auditorium, it was way up in the top of the = balcony and had doors that could be closed around it so it could be used for a practice organ. It was cut loose and put in the basement when the Skinner = was moved to Oppermann Hall.   Dr. Beard's studio organ was in one of the towers of the main building originally ... it was a two-manual Skinner unit residence organ ... I = think the player mechanism had been removed.   There was a slightly larger Skinner residence organ in the main auditorium = ... totally inadequate, as it spoke through a tone chute in the ceiling ... = but the player DID work, and there was a large library of rolls, including oversized ones of operas, symphonies, etc. that played from a second = player housed in a separate cabinet from the console.   The other practice organs were an old Moller Artiste and a Hammond concert model.   I knew the older two-manual Skinner in First Pres ... the three manual A/S came after my time in Tallahassee.   BTW, I used to also play the cast-bell chime in St. John's Episcopal = downtown .... it had been silent for many years, and a gang of us got it playing = again. The organ at St. John's at the time was a DREADFUL Estey ... think it's = been replaced by a Schantz, but in the same location (the north transcept), so = I don't know how much more successful it is at speaking around the corner = than the Estey was.   First Baptist was a screech-and-snarl three-manual Moller, First Methodist = was a small unfinished three-manual Austin, and Chapel of the Resurrection (Episcopal Student Center) was a little four-rank unit organ built by E.M. Skinner Church Organs, Inc. ... they were the last of the surviving = Skinner crew, and settled somewhere in northern Florida ... they also built organs = for All Saints' and St. David's in Lakeland, and Mulberry Methodist (a twin of = the Resurrection organ). They were the ones who did the A/S transplant for = First Pres in Tallahassee. I don't know if they still exist or not ... they were mostly a tuning and service company by the late '50s.   I imagine the Holtkamp in Oppermann is rather "austere", though they did = build a three-manual tracker in more-or-less French classic/romantic style in La Mesa Methodist (a suburb of San Diego) ... I liked the sound of that one, = but the key-action was very heavy. I've never heard the Oppermann Holtkamp.   Enjoy yourself ... Tallahassee is a GREAT place ... be sure to go swimming = at Blue Sink!   Cheers,   Bud

Does anyone out there know why he did this? Carlo, =09You have to understand a little about the organ where this was played in order to interpret the registration instructions that he's giving you. In the case of the C-C organ at St. Clothilde, "anches preparees" most certainly includes more than just 8' pitch. =09"Anches Recit" at the top of page 4 includes not only the Trompette and Clairon, but also the Octavin 2' and Flute Octaviant 4'. =09"Anches Positif" near the bottom of page 5 includes not just the Trompett and Clairon, but also another 4', Doublette, Quinte, and (depending on your sources) a mixture. Adapting the term "Anches Positif" to a North American instrument is often the most challenging. Most North American instruments give you nothing but a Krummyhorn. A better choice is to simply add the Great Trumpet (even though it rightfully belongs to the "Anches G.O.") and finish adding the G.O. Anches when it asks for it. =09"Anches Grand-Orgue" at the end includes the following battery of stops. Octave 4', Quinte 3', Doublette 2', Fourniture, Bombarde 16', Trompette 8', and Clairon 4'. =09There most certainly is more to it than just unison pitches! An odd thing about this piece is that Pierne asks you to open the doors before adding the Recit Anches. A more logical method of crescendo would be to add the Swell Reeds and THEN crescendo sometime during the middle of page 5, leading nicely into the addition of the Positif reeds.   > I'll be interested in the responses you get to this, but it's my > understanding that in French music of this school 8-foots (feet?) > predominate and that you should not use much in the way of 2' and Mixture= s. =09Nope, your confusing France with Germany and the United States. French organs most certainly do use 2' and Mixtures, along with a battery of reeds that will knock your socks off.   > Think horizontally instead of vertically. A warm sound, more orchestral > than brilliant. =09Again, your confusing Cavaille-Coll with Ernest Skinner. While the sound of a C-C is certainly very warm (especially in comparison to the neo-baroque screechers that we find on this side of the pond), C-C certainly built vertical choruses and the composers definitely want them.   Robert Horton - GTA, University of Kansas http://falcon.cc.ukans.edu/~gemshorn   "Does it change many dyslexics how to take a lightbulb?"
