(back) Subject: Visiting Centreville, VA... From: "Greg" <homza@indiana.edu> Date: Tue, 14 Nov 2000 08:42:33 -0500 (EST)   Dear Listers,   I'm going to be visiting family in the Centreville/S. Riding, VA area (zip code 20152) next Tuesday through Friday (11/21-24.) I suspect that, due to the Thanksgiving holiday, it will be hard to find a church that will be open for practice. Nevertheless, does anyone know of anywhere that might be willing to open its doors to an organ grad student on Wednesday (any time) or Friday (morning)? My preference would be for a nice tracker, but anything with 61/32 (or 58/30!) compass will do.   My thanks in advance for any help you can offer.   -greg homza Bloomington, IN

(back) Subject: Re: None Question From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Tue, 14 Nov 2000 16:56:43 EST   Hi Steve:   The None 8/9 gives a bit more reedy bite to the Sesquialtera II. I would think it's use is marginal at best. It was reserved usually for large divisions of very big organs. Repitching it to 1' would make it more useful IMHO. You could just add longer tuning slides.   Regards,   Ron Severin  
(back) Subject: RE: 4/5 Tierce, was: None Question From: "Randy Terry" <randyterry@laumc.org> Date: Tue, 14 Nov 2000 14:14:04 -0800   There is a large 1969 Aeolian Skinner at Independent Presbyterian Church = in Birmingham, Alabama. It was rebuilt from a 1925 Skinner of about 45 = ranks. In the 70's Moller added a small prepared for 4 stop Positiv, and an Antiphonal Principal Chorus and a big solo reed "Major Trumpet." Later additions included a metal 32' Bombarde, and during the 90's the entire organ was revoiced by John Hendriksen to get more blend and beef up the 8' level. They also put in new copies of the Skinner Tromba, Tuba Mirabilis, and French Horn that they discarded in 1969, as well as adding a 16' = Violone and V Grand Cornet to the great, and redoing the great mixture work so = that there are two mixtures and less reliance on the octave coupler.   The Choir is/was small. Concert Flute 8, Dolcan and Celeste, 4' Fugara, = 2' Flute, 1-1/3' Larigot and it had a 1' Sifflote and the original Clarinet = 8'. Hendriksen repitched the 1' Sifflote (kind of out of place in this = instance anyway) to a 4/5' Tierce. It is charming and delightful in combination = with the 1-1/3' and to me was a creative and inexpensive way to make an = existing stop more useful. The whole organ is around 90 ranks so I totally agree that these sort of stops are to be reserved for very large organs!   -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org]On Behalf Of RonSeverin@aol.com   The None 8/9 gives a bit more reedy bite to the Sesquialtera II.

It adds some bite to a cornet style solo combination. Bob E.   Stephen Ohmer wrote:   > Question: > > What is an 8/9 None good for?

(back) Subject: Music From: "George Lawn" <sandlawn@bayou.com> Date: Tue, 14 Nov 2000 22:41:50 -0600   Just returned from my church after a wonderful cello concert .... Evan Drachman... Gregor Piatagorsky's grandson... playing his grandfather's Strad .... sometimes, it seems we as organists get so involved in making music... we need to take an hour or two to just sit back and listen to a live concert of music that we do not or maybe never be able to play. I feel so much more refreshed this evening after just listening and not thinking about playing.... I think I will probably play better this Sunday!   Sand Lawn
