(back) Subject: Tibia Plena sound From: <KriderSM@aol.com> Date: Mon, 21 Feb 2000 08:42:38 EST   ....an operating Wurlitzer tremulant? :-)   Stan Krider   Bro. Bob Lahey asks:   Is there anyone out there that might be able to distinguish the difference in sound between a "tibia plena" and a big open flute? Our instrument has (on 10") a rank of Austin flues that were labeled "Flauto Major." Some = have seen the rank and said it's just a big "gross flute." What would distinguish a tibia plena from a "flauto major" or "gross = flute"?

I think it is indeed the Episcopal Musician's Handbook on CD ... I've seen a lot of software like that advertised in Episcopal Life, but since it's all for the new liturgy, I don't have much use for it. The Handbook, on the other hand, has a complete cross-reference for ALL the Scripture that has corollary hymns in both the '82 and '40 Hymnals (I think ... the last edition I had still included the '40), and it WOULD be useful to have that in the computer.   Cheers,   Bud   Rebekah Ingram wrote:   > Greetings, all, I received yesterday, in my mailbox, a trial CD called > LitMus.

Differences between all of these are mostly academic but variations in mouth styles, wind pressure and scales can have a profound effect on tonal quality. Find a copy of Stevens Irwin's Dictionary of Pipe =   Organ Stops and look them up. Better yet, memorize it!

Differences between all of these are mostly academic   Amen to that. Even for the examples given above, one also finds "Hohlflote" applied to = a capped metal flute! Audsley was right onin quoting Archer, "The = introduction of meaningless names can only have been the result of 'the desire of some builders to differ from their contemporaries'" (v.1, p.579) I still have yet to find a good, quick way to help my students out on = this issue. I just try to encourage them to use their ears and rely on basic qualities of sound, thereby avoiding the messy, polyglot cluster-f%#^$ = that has become the modern organ console. -- Robert Horton - GTA, University of Kansas http://falcon.cc.ukans.edu/~gemshorn/
