So I was very interested in R. D. Swets comments about William Arms Fisher's relationship to this piece.   Who was William Arms Fisher? Details, please?   Thanx. Cordially,   Karl E.

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

Then I heard that this was an early composition = of Faure and was originally written with organ accompaniment. Does anyone = know of such an edition? Jerry in Seattle
