Thanks for your help, Danny Ray

The Positif would also ha= ve the Cornet decompose, probably with the addition of the Larigot 1 1/3. Th= e Recit would normally have the Petit Cornet (2 2/3-2-1 3/5).   > Is there a specific reason to have any of the three under expression fo= r > French literature?   Depends ... are you talking about French baroque or French romantic music= ?   Cheers,   Bud Clark   > Thanks for your help, > Danny Ray > > "Pipe Up and Be Heard!" > PipeChat: A discussion List for pipe/digital organs & related topics > HOMEPAGE : http://www.pipechat.org > List: mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org > Administration: mailto:admin@pipechat.org > Subscribe/Unsubscribe: mailto:requests@pipechat.org

The only definite advice I feel comfortable giving is that you have them on separate manuals, of the three, I would have the Trompette under expression. The Cromorne is typically on the Positif, which would leave the Cornet for the Great. If you are using a duplexable action it would be helpful to make the cornet available to be played against the Cromorne and the Trompette, possibly even against itself with the addition of another stop for added strength as there is literature calling for Cornet against Cornet. French organs (large ones!) usually have Trompettes and Cornets on all manuals, with character varying according to the divisional expectations. Sounds like there is a project a-brewing..... tell us more!   bruce cornely cremona84000@webtv.net
