TP action was a stop-gap technology at best,   Hmmm, It's a shame that J.J.Binns is dead, I would love to be a fly on the wall as you explain to him that his technology was 'stop-gap'. Perhaps the current 'fondness' is more to do with preserving light touch, instantaneous speech, and the ability to add further divisions, stops etc.. cheaply and quickly. It might also be to do with the reliability of the action, ease of maintenance and repair, and the very considerable reduction in the number of moving parts. If a TP organ is a 'wheeze' box, then perhaps the owners might in future, consider the value of properly looking after their investment.   I would agree that a *neglected* TP organ is a sad instrument. I would also agree that some organ builders got it right, and others would have been better employed making accordians.   ................... Of course, I have no experience of TP organs by American builders................, so perhaps everything you say is a fair take on the situation. ;)   Cheers, Chris Baker.

A friend just contacted me, planning a recital, and has a fabulous trombonist in his congregation. He is trying to come up with something for organ and trombone. Any ideas?

(back) Subject: Re: Organ and trombone? From: <CharlesHTu@aol.com> Date: Fri, 7 Apr 2000 00:48:01 EDT   There are many ways to use organ and trombone--a particularly useful collection (s) is called I believe, 6o trombone hymns and countermelodies = and its companion volume 6o more trombone hymns and countermelodies--published = by Hope Publishing I think. There are also two volumes for trumpet which have =   descants whioch are different than the trombone countermelodies. I say "I think" because I am at home and my music is at church. since the Bb = trombone reads "concert" pitch, the trombone can read straight from the organ = score. The Paul Manz "God of Grace" can use the trombone on the l.h. melody. The Healey Willian setting of the tune "Gelobt sei Gott" from his two volume = set of chorale preludes published by Concordia can utilize a trombone inplace = of the L.H. Tuba part. I have even used a trombone to play the cantus firmus = of the manuals only setting of Ein feste Burg by J.G.Walther. There are = editions of famous pieces like "the Holy City" for trombone and organ or Panis Angelicus of Franck--the list is endless. On the days when my wife plays to e service instead of me, I often play = along on the hymns and the liturgy on either the trombone, euphonium or = flugelhorn. Good luck!   Charles Tucker

Any ideas?<snip>   I have a Max Reger arrangement of Richard Strau=DF's "Feierlicher Einzug" ("Festival Processional"?), arranged for two or three trombones and tympani that I used years ago.
