The calendar went from 1 BC to 1 AD, thus making the first millennium start in 1 and end in 1001. So, the second millennium (the one we're in right now), started in 1001 and will end on December 31st, 2000....and the 3rd millennium will begin on January 1st, 2001 and go until 3001, and so on.....   Everyone understand that one? =)   Carlo     ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com

(back) Subject: Re: more on consoles, etc. From: MickBerg@aol.com Date: Wed, 5 May 1999 15:40:19 EDT   I have a Klann console with similar layout. Couplers on black drawknobs at the bottom, octave couplers (white) at the top, stops in the middle. When I acquired it, someone had rammed a completely useless fourth manual into it, and stuck the music rack right at the top of the console (using drywall screws! ) After spending a very short time thinking how impressive and huge this was, I removed the fourth manual (there weren't even any wires attached to it!) and put the music rack where it originally was, directly above the swell, and the console is now very comfortable, rather like a tracker organ. Moral: Don't mess with things unless you really are sure you will improve them. Things usually are best the way they were originally conceived. All I have to do now is learn how to play properly!

OTOH, maybe that was better than a "sketchy affair" four-. And a lot easier to undo, eh?   Stan Yoder Pittsburgh

(back) Subject: 3-manual vs 4-manual From: Bud/burgie <budchris@earthlink.net> Date: Wed, 05 May 1999 14:19:32 -0700   Aside from the prestige aspect, it WAS more useful on those old four-manual organs to have the Solo Tuba Miraculous isolated on a fourth manual so you could play it against the full Swell-Great-Choir coupled. Of course, except on the largest organs, the Choir divisions were pretty much useless for adding anything to the full sound, since they were usually just collections of soft stops with no real flue or reed choruses, so you could have accomplished the same thing by putting the Tuba on the Choir manual (the usual practice in 3-manual romantic English organs) and leaving off the Solo manual altogether. The Tuba lived on the Choir manual at Dr. Willan's church (St. Mary Magdalene, Toronto) before the rebuild; I don't know if that's still the case.   Aside from the Tuba, there really WASN'T much of a reason for making a fourth manual ... it usually controlled an 8' Diapason-en-chamade, a big honkin' 8' flute, a huge string and celeste, and a collection of orchestral voices (French Horn, English Horn, Orchestral Clarinet, Orchestral Oboe, etc.).   I've played a couple of modern organs where the fourth manual was either the Choir or the Positiv (they had both), but don't see much sense in that ... if you wanted either, you wanted them on the bottom manual, so you always ended up coupling them anyway.   Being shaped like the proverbial tea-pot (short and stout), I can't reach most fourth manuals anyway (grin).   With today's electronic gadgets, it's not necessary to build a fourth manual just to isolate the Tuba, at least not on an electric action organ. John-Paul Buzard has built a couple of two-manual organs with a Tuba Solo coupler, similar to a Swell to Great Melody coupler, except that it only plays the (floating) Tuba on the highest note of the chord, rather than an entire division.   It's also possible to make the Tuba non-coupling (as on the organ at St. Andrew's-by-the-Sea in Pacific Beach, CA) ... the Tuba resides on the Swell, but isn't affected by inter or intra-manual couplers, so you can still couple the full Swell to the Great to accompany it. It also draws the Swell Unison Off automatically, so the rest of the Swell is silent on the Swell manual when the Tuba is playing.   I can't think of much serious organ literature (other than Sowerby and a couple of other composers of that era) that require four manuals. Personally, I'd rather have three COMPLETE manual divisions, rather than starving the three to make a fourth.   Cheers,   Bud

(back) Subject: Re: 3-manual vs 4-manual From: CHERCAPA@aol.com Date: Wed, 5 May 1999 18:35:58 EDT   Dear Bud, Today was the first time I played a tracker and the first time I played a set of manuals whose keys were made of wood. Pear, (Bartlett ??) cherry (George's tree before he cut it down). I liked the possibilities the tracker might have but the wooden keys can be placed where light never enters. The sides of my fingers rub against them and then I hit two notes or keys instead of one. Looks like someon played it with chocolate on their fingers. I really hate to say it but I think they just need a good cleaning. Do you clean those type of keys. Course I'm a neat freak and can't stand a dirty console but i think that's what is wrong with the wooden keys. LEt me know what you think. Peace, Paul

Well said, and you're not alone in this sentiment. When Eddie Lemare had the Walker organ built for St. Margaret's in Westminster, he was setting out to proove that very same fact...that a "well-appointed three manual is preferable to an indifferent instrument of four-manuals". That being said, I don't think the argument carries over to the comparison of a three manual instrument versus a two manual instrument. Even if the third manual is nothing more than a Cornet there is a great deal of repertoire written for this layout. An example would the (recent?) Schudi organ where Todd Wilson recorded the Durufle integrale. The third manual is nothing more than a Cornet separee and Phallic Trumpet.   Rob http://falcon.cc.ukans.edu/~gemshorn/

The concert is at the Auditorium Center at 875 East Main Street in Rochester, NY.   As an added incentive to be in Rochester, Rochester's Lilac Festival starts the day before the concert on Friday, May 14 and runs continuously through Sunday, May 23.

( 60 degrees F in Great Britain) so if the recording were made on a hot summer day it is possible the pitch is fairly close to a whole step high according to our norms.   Rick Maryman Staunton VA

From: Rod Murrow <murrows@pldi.net> Date: Wed, 05 May 1999 21:12:44 -0500   Hi, Remember me - and my diatribe to some of you about all those requests for copies that I see every day on this chatline? Sorry if I offended anyone, but I see so much illegal copying nowadays - it's become one of my "peeves" (not pet peeve, just peeve!).   Well, here I am, asking for a copy of something! I have contacted Genevox (Broadman Press) about a POP organ collection, "A Joyful Noise" by Alice Jordan. They have granted me permission to make photocopies IF I CAN FIND AN ORIGINAL from which to copy (and if I pay them $5, and if it's ONLY one copy and ONLY for my personal use and I promise not to sell it to anyone for personal profit).   So, I'm asking...does anyone have a copy of "A Joyful Noise" by Alice Jordan, who would be willing to share? If so, send me a personal e-mail and we can make arrangements about the details. I appreciate your help...(see, you CAN make legal copies if you follow the rules).   Rodney Murrow
