The Chorales of the 17 & 18 Centuries (Keller?) and partitas of Pachelbel, as well as CP's of Willian, Titcomb and Callahan would sound quite nice on the Stopped Diapason or Swell Principal 8. Not being familiar with the organ, I can only speculate that the Principal 4 and Octave 4 and Gemshorn 2 would also work well played an octave lower or even at their own pitch. It is actually refreshing to have something played an octave higher now and then. The Lieblich Bourdon 16 tc played an octave (or two!) higher is also a possibility.   >=A0 if you had the money or space for three or > four registers to add a bit of a "romantic" > sound to the organ, what registers would you > add? For example on the Great, I would like > a silvery soft diapason....   Great: 8 Open Diapason, 8 Stopped Diapason, 4 Principal ---to these stops I would add a Second OD, or a French Salicional, maybe a Gemshorn, or Open Flute. If two additions were possible, the Salicional and Open Flute would be my choice (if space is a consideration they could stop at G or even tc with common basses). This would make the Great: 888842iv. The 4' can be added to any unison stop for brightness or the 8 can be played up an octave. Adding a 4' flute would brighten the ensemble, but I don't think it would be as useful.   Swell 16 Lieblich Bourdon (Tenor C) 8 Principal 4 Octave 2 Gemshorn ii Sesquialtera (12 / 17 unbroken) ----In the swell I would add a Chimney Flute 8 and an Harmonic Flute 4, possibly also a Viola. A 4' flute would be more useful in the swell for accompanying the choir; for versatility I would want the Sesquialtera ranks separated for additional color possibilities.   This would leave the specification:   Great 8 Open Diapason 8 Second Open Diapason or Salicional 8 Stopped Diapason 8 Hohlflute 4 Principal 2 Fifteenth iv Mixture (19 / 22 / 26 / 29 breaking three times to 8 / 12 / 15 / 19)   Swell 16 Lieblich Bourdon (Tenor C) 8 Principal 8 Chimney Flute 8 Viola 4 Octave 4 Harmonic Flute 2 2/3 Quint 2 Gemshorn 1 3/5 Tierce 8 Cornopean (it's a "little Trumpet", actually; not over loud, but bright)   Pedal 16 Lieblich Bourdon (separate from Swell and a little louder) 8 Principal 4 Octave 16 Contra Fagotto Great to Pedal Swell to Pedal Swell to Great   I would consider this a good small service instrument.   Bruce & the Baskerbeagles ~~+~~+~~ rohrschok8@webtv.net ~~+~~+~~   Barking dogs don't bite, but they themselves don't know it. -- Shalom Aleichem

I do draw the line at having a mug of water, plate of > food, etc. at the console during worship.   Well, I have to take exception here, perhaps a geographical or climatic exception. Here in AZ, it is possible to lose body moisture just sitting in an air conditioned room. Humidity is usually in single digits, and most folks around here are in an early state of dehydration. In fact, I went in for a blood test a week ago and flunked -- they couldn't get anything from me because of dehydration.   Many people (including me, now) carry a bottle of water with them, and take a "plug on the jug" frequently through the day. It's just a fact of life here. I keep one near the console and wouldn't worry about anyone in the loft doing likewise. In this area, it's just good sense.   Dennis

In my case, I get terribly thirsty when I play; I think it's because I almost "sing along" with my throat, though = not loud enough that even I can hear. I do try to have a glass of water = handy, though I try not to drink from a bottle (i.e., the recycled Evian bottle that I fill up from my filtered drinking water tap at home and take with = me to church) but from a glass--less obtrusive. Though I notice that more = and more people are carrying bottled water wherever they go.   Bruce, do you really think it looks bad to drink water from a glass during a service? Don't pastors/parsons/priests/clergypersons often keep a glass of water at the pulpit (on a concealed shelf, but available when they need it)? I should think that many choristers would sing better if they could drink a little h2o from time to time, too.   I would draw the line at a plate of food.   Take a lesson, Bruce, from your dogs. If they are anything like mine, = they know their bodies need constant liquid replenisment. I'm sure you keep water by them at all times.   R. Runyon

(back) Subject: water for the singers From: Bud/burgie <budchris@earthlink.net> Date: Tue, 15 Jun 1999 09:25:56 -0700   I live and work in California ... folks come with water bottles attached (grin).   For long services and/or whenever we have incense, there's always a big = pitcher of ice water and cups hidden behind the organ (and cough drops and lemon slices). For all that I love the discipline and ceremonial of having the = choir in stalls up front, it simply isn't practical for us ... mothers bring = their kids to sit with them in choir, and singers DO need water during long = services in dry heat or air-conditioning.   Of course in the old days when we WERE up front, the singers used to sneak = a drink whenever the choir turned to face the altar, like for the Gloria = Patri, Gloria, Credo, etc.   I have no problem with it ... and there isn't really a long enough pause = in our service to go out and GET water, except maybe the sermon, and a mass = exodus wouldn't be seemly, since we're on the main floor in the back, and about = 1/3 of the congregation CAN see us.   Cheers,   Bud    
(back) Subject: H2O From: Bud/burgie <budchris@earthlink.net> Date: Tue, 15 Jun 1999 09:46:11 -0700   I think it depends on how "distracting" it would be ... I'm pretty rigid about a lot of things, but not about creature comforts for my singers.   I'd observe that MOST places where the choir IS in the front (1) have shorter services and (2) don't do anything APPROACHING the amount of singing we do in the course of a normal Sunday.   We run an average of an hour and twenty minutes if nothing special is = going on ... of that, ten minutes TOPS is the sermon, another ten or fifteen minutes spoken prayers and readings, and the REST, friends and neighbors, is SINGING ... Processional Hymn - Introit - Kyrie - Gloria, broken only = by the Collect for Purity and Summary of the Law; then usually a COMPLETE Psalm for the Gradual, followed by the Alleluia; the other big chunk is = the Communion Verse - Psalm - Communion Hymn (quite often up to twenty minutes in length). That's a LONG dry spell (grin).   Cheers,   Bud     bruce cornely wrote:   > > Don't forget to drink LOTS of water before... > remember.... there are consequences for doing this which are not always > convenient! > > > during.... > DURING????

Guess I am 'chust old fashioned, but in my estimation, carrying one's = bottle of water everywhere they go,,,as is practiced these days, seems to me like = a baby with a pacifier, everywhere it goes. I keep a glass of water, room temperature, with a coaster under, on = the console at all times, no one has ever complained up to this point. I have noticed tho,,,that water coolers, and drinking fountains, that =   used to be "standard fare" in most public places have, to a large part, disappeared. But then, some places charge one for a drink of water. = Keeping hydrated? I think its a natural instinct--at the console or not-----no instructions needed! Cheers, ---Roc

Since it's so dry here, you can sweat your water away without even being aware of the sweating process. It's not uncommon to be dehydrated even before you feel thirsty.   There was an article in the paper just a day or so ago -- dehydration is linked to heartburn, tiredness, headache, and many other common conditions.   Pass me the bottle.
