(back) Subject: Re:Tuning in Bach's Time From: dave <dpitzer@sonic.net> Date: Wed, 07 Jul 1999 02:06:40 -0700   List:   I'm a bit confused over the question of the tuning of organ's in Bach's time. Are you asking whether Bach's organs were in tune "with themselves" or whether they were "in tune" with some standard (e.g. A=3D440).   If the former, I should think that the organs -- because of the way they were winded -- would have been pretty much in tune with themselves --- = that is, the Haupwerk was sounding the same frequencies as the Positiv and/or the Pedaal divisions and vice versa. I say this since the organs were winded by hand (or foot) from a central bellows so that the air reaching all divisions was essentially the same temperature -- the temperature of the ambient air in and around the main bellows. If the church was cold, = the bellows was equally cold and, it seems to me, the "tuning" of all = divisions would be all a little flat -- but equally flat. Conversely, on a hot July afternoon, the entire organ would be a little sharp --- compared to the tuning on an "average" spring or fall day. In any event, it would not be noticeable except to the most acute listener with highly developed perfect =   pitch.   These variations in sharpness and flatness would be a function of the air actually reaching the pipes through the trunks of the winding system and = to a lessor extent the air in the chests. I can't see where the question of "how often the instruments were tuned" has anything to do with this sense of the word "tuning."   If a particular stop (say the 8' Principal of the Hauptwerk) was itself tuned, it might be out of tune with the Trumpett or 2' Octaaf of the same chest but that would have nothing to do with the temperature of the building would it?   And in any case, what would any of these concerns have to do with the way = a particular piece way played ---- disregarding unwanted tremulant = effects!!!   Dave Pitzer

At the beginning of the present thread Bruce Cornely compared it to a container full of French fries, and I certainly see how one might think that -- but what is wrong with that. It would be a one-off, non-repeatable design that nobody would dream of reproducing ever again -- like "The Hand of God" organ in France -- but it is unusual, different, interesting. I am all for it.   John Speller

(back) Subject: Brian-Paul Thomas, St. Mark's, New Canaan From: ManderUSA@aol.com Date: Wed, 7 Jul 1999 08:55:08 EDT   I attended last night a cool (kewl) recital in the hellish heat of a = lovely modern building, just modern enough to have no windows that open, but not modern enough for air-conditioning. What was billed as "A Recital of Light =   Classics," played by Brian-Paul Thomas, Music Director at St. Mark's = Church, New Canaan, CT, made a lot of the pain of the heat go away. It was a delightful evening, somewhat reminiscent of an English town hall recital. Somehow, the Percy Fletcher Festival Toccata has never appealed to me, but = it is a crowd pleaser, and, in this case, made a good opening to the recital. =   Next, a four movement Suite for a Musical Clock, by Handel, arranged by Richard Purvis. Brian-Paul then very clearly and simply explained a bit to =   the audience about Concerto Grosso structure - Concertino, Ripieno - = before playing the first movement, Allegro, of the Bach Vivaldi A Minor Concerto. = I think this helped the audience focus on the music. In a pleasant switch of =   mood, we then heard the Virgil Fox arrangement for solo organ of Cantabile =   Symphonique, from the Saint-Saens Third Symphony - very lush and lovely. = We then learned that Bellini wrote a piece for organ, Sonata per Organo, with = an introduction, and a very operatic Allegro - quite giggleworthy, mostly because it is a style we don't expect to come out of a church organ. Back = to lush again, with a Dale Wood Voluntary on New Britain (Amazing Grace), and = to close the program brilliantly, the Bonnet Concert Variations. What a nice = way to spend a summer evening, even a hot one. The organ, by the way, is a 60s =   Austin, installed high on the east wall (in a very warm and live = acoustic), with the choir seated under it. A most remarkable and huge reredos/screen (completely sound-transparent) runs from floor to ceiling behind the high altar, and behind it is the organist, surrounded by his choir, with the = organ above. This church also has a free-standing carillon tower, and a bell concert is played before these summer programs. I arrived for the last 15 minutes of abolutely brilliant bell playing by George Matthew. There is a concert next Tuesday night (8:15), this time outside in the attractive courtyard, preceded by a carillon recital which can be enjoyed on the = great lawn in front of the church.   Cheers,   Malcolm Wechsler Mander Organs, Ltd. - U.

I believe it had a screen stretched over the entire intake side. We did get what looks like = a round cast iron register (same size as the ports) with a flat metal bar holding down a double layer of rubber cloth on the grille. I assume this functions like the mouse trap but where does it go? I see no evidence of it having been mounted on the intake.   ANSWER: The iron register you refer to goes inside the air discharge = nozzle. It is mounted with the canvas valve on top.

You can order it from Southeastern Felt Supply-Concord,North Carolina-1-800-438-2252 = You can get it with the adhesive already applied to one side.   Where else is gasketing used?

A flat gasket with a = hole for the shaft to pass through (snug fit) is mounted on the first baffle (The one = you can see in front of the motor). What does the arrow on the hub of each impeller mean?   ANSWER: The arrow is usually lined up with a scribe mark which runs the length of the shaft. You can usually see the marks on the shaft left by the Allen nuts or short studs which were used to tighten the impeller hub. The larger fan wheels have a split hub with two studs for tightening. They still had a set = screw which is snugged first.   Could someone advise on the correct order and orientation of the pieces that make up the assembly?   ANSWER: If you will contact me privately, I can tell you how to = reassemble the blower.

From: "Carl & Grace Snip" <cgscissors@followme.com> Date: Wed, 7 Jul 1999 11:01:47 -0400   Years ago a classmate and I were visiting a friend of his who was (a lift = bridge operator?/lighthouse attendant?) employed tending lighthouses, beacons and = such, located on and about the Beach Strip of the harbour at Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. In our = travels that day they showed me an old manually-operated foghorn; IIRC it was a box roughly 4' = long x 3' wide x 2' deep, and at one end had two diaphragms/sound holes, one somewhat larger than = the other.   On the "out" stroke of the operating lever a relatively higher tone was = produced, and on the return stroke a second tone a fifth lower than the first was generated, something = on the order of LO LO LO "G" followed by "C" three octaves below middle "C" ( I hope I'm describing = it correctly; I don't know the proper method of musical denotation). Don't quote me on the = pitches, all I know was the sound was Serioso Basso Profundo, and deafening; we were in a = not-too-large equipment storage room at the time, but demonstrated our sheer folly by trying the foghorn = several times anyway.

As I listed once before, the Great Lakes Lighthouse foghorns were a special type of Diaphone developed and patented by Robert Hope-Jones. I haven't the foggiest idea what pitch they were except that the sound was more of a BAAROOMPH rather than one fixed tone. You can't imagine how much reverberation fog can enhance until you hear one of these horns blast within a rocky fog-hidden coastline :-)   Bill Winchester (former Great Lakes boater)     <clipped>

(back) Subject: Fw: steam vs. air From: "Carl & Grace Snip" <cgscissors@followme.com> Date: Wed, 7 Jul 1999 12:27:48 -0400   Hello Roc, Frank, Phil, & List!   I've only heard calliopes, never played one, but I do have a Stationary = Engineer's ticket (3rd class) so I will try to add something constructive to this thread.   Excuse me, I'm not trying to be an ass, but ANY compressed gas when = released to atmosphere will expand in accord with the ol' pressure versus volume thing, so to say that = air does NOT expand is incorrect.   That being said, I will nonetheless most definitely agree that steam would = sound a whistle in a completely different manner than would air; the stuff about air rapidly = being displaced by steam within the whistle column, the change in whistle characteristics = engendered as the whistle heats up, the effect of varying amounts of condensate present as the whistle = operates, all make sense as being contributors to an entirely distinct sound.   Now I'm going to go out on a limb; I will try to keep the technical = language to a minimum, or at least explain its context.   My limited grasp of thermodynamics tells me that as air expands to = atmospheric pressure it undergoes an adiabatic (meaning without the addition or removal of energy = from an external source) expansion which will cause its temperature to drop from its pre-expansion = level. This is the same effect that causes the temperature of the air coming in off of the Pacific = Ocean to drop as it is forced to climb the Rocky Mountains. (Interestingly, this effect in = reverse causes a rise in temperature of the winds that descend from the mountains east of Orange, = California down into the valley, commonly known as the Santa Ana winds.)   Thus operating a whistle on air should cause some changes to its sound as = operation continues and the whistle cools. (I'm just theorizing here; anyone who knows differently = please respond, as I'd like to know.)   Operating a whistle on steam should add the wrinkle that even though steam = undergoes adiabatic expansion just like any expanding gas, it is much, much hotter to begin = with and thus will heat up the whistle. However the other hugely significant difference is that = whereas air will operate a whistle only as an expansive device, steam will be operating calorically = as well as expansively, in other words it will be converting its enthalpy (internal energy) into work = , thus operating as a "heat engine."   carl snip [hurriedly donning my suit of ablative armour, while also watching for = incoming tomatoes]     -----Original Message----- From: GRSCoLVR@aol.com <GRSCoLVR@aol.com> To: pipechat@pipechat.org <pipechat@pipechat.org> Date: Friday, July 02, 1999 12:46 AM Subject: Re: steam vs. air     >Hi Frank, Phil, and list--- > I dont have a complete answer for you folks on the air versus steam >question.

If it's oddity creates awarness of the organ and it's music - perhaps others will seek out other venues with nicer facades to hear more organ music. We can only hope though that these nicer facades have the pipework behind the pretty face to keep the interst.
