It = features the 45 voice semi-professional choir and Mander pipe organ of Christ = Church Cranbrook (Episcopal) in Bloomfield Hills, MI under the direction of = Charles Raines, Organist-Choirmaster and Leslie Wills, Organist.   Not only is the choir in top form vocally but the organ sounds = magnificent. The performance of the choir is refined, the diction is very clear and = well executed, and, in some places- quite interesting indeed. The organ is = played beautifully and the choir accompanied sensitively and appropriately. = There are places where a single 8' flute accompaniment is as clear and defined = as one could ever ask for or require, a testament to Mander's superb = artistry. Charles Raines, a colleague who serves on the Detroit Chapter AGO board of =   directors with me, has done a splendid job in bringing some wonderful and fresh music to the ears of listeners with this recording, in fact I plan = to get some repertoire ideas from the recording for the choir at the National =   Shrine of the Little Flower. (Thanks, Charles!)   In closing, there is no reason not to have this CD and I recommend it with =   the highest possible praise I can give to it. I found my copy at the = Harmony House Classical Store on Woodward Avenue in Royal Oak, just north of the Shrine on the east side. I am certain that one can acquire copies by contacting Christ Church Cranbrook as well. Thank you Charles, Leslie, = choir and Mander for a fantastic new addition to my recording collection!

An X-66 inna CHURCH! This is a first to me!   > Attached is a huge speaker cabinet which is way to oversized=20 >for the chapel (seats 70).<snip>   Bigger speaker can only help. Hopefully, it's a Leslie. If not, a Series 12 tone cabinet by Hammond, perchance?   >Come on - let me in on some of that Hammond magic now - if I have to >play this beast once a month - I would at least like to make it sound good!<snip>   Well, I have news...not all of it good! the X-66 is a one-of-a-kind model, and isn't a tonewheel organ. The tonewheels were used solely to develop "pilot" tones that were fed into frequency dividers, =E0 la your basic tackier e-orgs of the same period. Thus, there is no "mistuning", as does exist is better analong organs, and even in true tonewheel organs, known as the "ensemble" effect. All octaves and their derivations are locked in frequency and phase, giving the organ a "sterile" sound, at best.   One thing the X-66 has in common with the H-100s and X-77, however, are more drawbars, namely the I and II bars, providing approximations of the 7th and 9th, and 10th and 12th harmonics. This helps a lot to disspell the "dull" sound of earlier 9 drawbar models.   As a public service to you, I shall include some single stops that I've jotted down over the years, along with some suggested ensembles:   Prinicpal 8' 00 7765 010 10 Octave 4' 00 0707 043 01 Nazard 2 2/3' 00 0050 050 03 Fifteenth 2' 00 0005 005 04 Mixture IV 00 0000 011 05   Now, in theory, (YMMV), by taking the strongest harmonic of each column (unless two entries are equal, then you add a notch), you'd end up with a bright diapason chorus at:   00 7867 065 15   Note that you only want a taste of the I drawbar...it provides the 7th and 9th of the 8' harmonic series; too much and you'll end up with a reedy quality. Now for flutes:   Bourdon 8' 00 7020 000 00 (also makes a convincing Tibia) Gedackt 8' 00 6030 100 00 (tierce makes it a little more "windy") Quintaten 16' 43 0000 000 00 Open Flute 8' 00 4612 131 00 (bright, tone down upper threedrawbar to dull it down) R=F6hrflote 4' 00 4010 001 12   Strings are tough, at best, on any Hammond...but:   Contragamba 16' 25 2220 000 00 Gamba 8' 00 4562 021 34 Salicional 8' 00 4641 020 20 Voile 8' 00 1255 111 12 (pp, almost a bright aeoline)   Reeds are even worse, but there are a few:   Trumpet 8' 00 4767 787 87 (loud, use less funadmentall in lower registers) Cremona 8' 00 5142 030 20 Clarinet 8' 00 6060 021 30 OPHICLIEIDE 8' 00 6888 788 88 (100' wind, pump swell to add more!) Clarion 8' 00 0406 088 78   ....and so it goes. I'll see if I can try some combos for you later.   Next, we'll talk about....walking!   DeserTBoB=09       > >All the Best, > >The_Maitre >______________________________________________________ >Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com > > >"Pipe Up and Be Heard!" >PipeChat: A discussion List for pipe/digital organs & related topics >HOMEPAGE : http://www.pipechat.org >List: mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org >Administration: mailto:admin@pipechat.org >Subscribe/Unsubscribe: mailto:requests@pipechat.org > > > >

He's trying to go >head-to-head with the ALLEN and RODGERS dealerships on church sales >(grin). I suppose he'll make a few sales to churches who aren't looking at >anything but the bottom = line.<snip>   Not the same market, really. The "fellow" is fellow HamTech member George Fish, of Fish Organs, in San Diego, http://members.aol.com/fishorgans   Here's a story that'll curl your collective hairs!   George made his first sale of a new Elegante to a church...and took an Allen ADC7300D in TRADE! This is part of the "dumbing down" of religious services and music. They wanted the Hammond to do contemporary crap, and wanted no part of solely"traditional" organ sounds. No doubt among us = that the Allen would run rings around the "Elegante" in organ repertoire, but...that's the way it's going, folks! The "tilt-up" churches, independent and selling an ultra-right wing line of pseudo-religious politics are taking over. The "pastors" usually run the whole shebang single handedly, and mollify the "faithful" with pop music and telling = them what they want to hear from the pulpit. I might add that most of these "pastors" get quite wealthy in the process...witness the white Lincoln = Town Cars that seem to be their vehicles of choice.   >The CS-235 has most of the same problems as the 825 ... note in >particular that the Swell has an 8' Open Diapason and a 2' Super Octave, >but no 4' Principal (!), and, like the 825, there's no 8' FLUTE on the = Swell Yes, the specification is quite amusing, isn't it? ROFL   >Oddly, the STRINGS are the worst stops on the 825, and most electronic >organs can come up with HALFWAY decent strings.<snip>   String ranks are only slightly less harmonically challenging to replicate than loud reeds. The smaller the scale of the prototype, the harder it gets. One thing about strings, like reeds, that bedevils the designer of an electronic dupe is that the tapering off of higher partials isn't necessary smooth and linear. A very keen, biting Viole d'Orchestre, in = its lower register, can have as many as 50 audible, discreet harmonics, and some are accentuated more than others, even with an open pipe! Slotted pipework such as this provides a harmonic formant that was all-but-impossible to duplicate in analog organs, such as early Allens and the like, due to this uneven emphasis of harmonic content. Add to this is "windiness" of small scale with its attendant inharmonics, and it gets worser 'n worser. Digital technology makes this job a lot more 'doable', but it's never easy, nor are results predictable. Reeds present another challenge all their own. Trying to faithfully reproduce that "blatt" of a high pressure chorus reed, or the "beep" of a regal-type is a tough nut to crack!   >In fairness, for an AGO console in the $10K-$15K range, they're probably >tolerable if you add external speakers<snip>   A must. "Console" speakers invariably always suck! Still, for a new (if one must have new, with a warranty) 2 manual practice instrument, this would work pretty well, and would be cheaper than any new Allen or = Rodgers, or even comparable Johannus.   >But even a little Galanti would play more music, I'd think ...<snip>   Ahlborn-Galanti's got a bad rap for peeling Formica consoles and general shoddiness, but I've not heard one. Also not heard by me are the new "Brewse Cornely" line of Bawldwin digitals. Can anyone give us some = insight?   DeserTBoB   PS: Gotta old Bawldwin schpinette you don't want? Contact Brewse in Gainesville, FL...he's starting a Bawldwin Schpinette Museum, I hear! Note: MUST have "Fun Machine"!   BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHA!

I find you get a better, mellower sound if the brightness is turned DOWN ... you can use more upper partials without them screaming ... oh, that's right, this is a newer model ... your brightness control may be somewhere else.   Maybe Bob can favor us with a "stoplist" of the X-66 ...
