From: <stalan@ix.netcom.com> Date: Sun, 05 Nov 2000 21:01:33 -0600   > Hammond CV... > final Shabbat with the Hammond > suggestions for a "Goodbye Song" which might be played > something appropriate to such an occasion...   <HUGE GRIN>...   Why not an homage to Ethel Smith? Perhaps, even an Ethel Smith costume... complete with bejeweled white gloves, de rigeur! Heck, the jewels alone will catch the attention of all those Jewish ladies so busily sizing up each other's "festival" wardrobes. Literature? TICO, TICO... of course! Send the old girl off in style! Oh, but then they may want the Hammond to stay! Best wishes...   Grew up playing many organs, including <blush> the Hammond. Whereupon, didst learn that "really" making those babies <go>... either through the exit door or to an altar... requires sultry shoulder raises and much slinging of one's best tit! ;-) Also have been an hired hand in synagogue, and do admit that the parade of "Easter Bonnets" is the same in my faith tradition.   Cheers! Scott Austin, Texas ....sorry, if need be, it's been an off the wall day.  
(back) Subject: Tibia Scaling From: "Noel Jones, AAGO" <gedeckt@usit.net> Date: Sun, 05 Nov 2000 23:01:05 -0500   Theater Pipe Buffs:   My first pipe organ & first church organ was a Robert Morton II/4.   My question is this:   When a tibia rank is built to be unified over multiple stops of multiple manuals as this one was, did the scaling of the pipework vary from a tibia meant to be used as one of many tibia ranks in a larger, more tonally = varied organ?   Were multiple ranks of the same tonal family included in the larger instrument for tonal variety/richness or for increased power?   I'd apreciate your thoughts on this.   Thanl you. --   Noel Jones, AAGO gedeckt@usit.net   Moderator, Rodgers Organ Discussion Group www.frogmusic.com/rodgersorgan.html
