I asked Stephen Smith about it and here is his reply   David   ***************FORWARDED NOTE************************* Re. the Tuba Magna at Liverpool...   It's a *glorious* stop, it's tone is pushed to the absolute limit and one can just about hear it verging on breaking-up! It is definitely a tuba, rather than a trumpet or trompette, and therefore has a very broad and = round sound.   Its resonators were originally to be of harmonic length throughout its compass (a 16' pipe for the 8' note!) but to the best of my knowledge, = only the trebles are now harmonic.   However, in fact, the stop has never been blown by 50-inch wind, despite what is claimed. The highest pressure it was ever on was about 45 inches and this has been gradually reduced over the years. As I recall, at = present the trebles are on about 37 inches and the basses are somewhat less. The same is true of the instrument's new Trompette Militaire rank - an awful stop, not a Tromp. Mili. at all.   The Militaire, which is located in the tower, is deafening and quite obliterates much of the main portion of the instrument. In terms of = impact on the ear, it surpasses anything at ACCH. However, at the chest, it is = of course, quiter than many ACCH stops also at the chest.   The Tuba Magna is a commanding voice which sails down the nave to great effect. It's wonderful for leading big congregations. ********************************************************** Note: the "ACCH" refers to the Midmer-Losh in the Atlantic City Convention Hall. Stephen is the President of the Atlantic City Convention Hall Organ Society and the foremost authority on the Midmer-Losh installed there.

(back) Subject: WTD: Pipe Organ poster From: Paul K <paul99@ptdprolog.net> Date: Thu, 30 Sep 1999 18:31:00 -0400 (EDT)     Hi, I've been looking for a poster of a traditional pipe organ, (big, ornate dark wooden case, face pipes, good arrangement) photographed in full color, face-on, as large as I can get, on heavy paper stock, in portrait format (vertical) to hang above my electronic keyboard and pretend I have real "pipes".   So far my search has been fruitless. Any help with sources or if you have one (in very good condition) please contact me.   Thanks --Paul

When I last visited Holland, several churches sold posters in their souvenir shops.   I specifically remember the famous ST Bavo in Haarlem, of which I have a poster (not for sale), also the large St Laurens in Rotterdam.
