I feel that the brilliance of good upperwork in the fortissimi makes for better contrast against the soft, string/flute/cutesy solo reed pianissimi. The thing that I'd worry about using a unison-heavy spec is basically the same thing that drove the likes of Holtkamp and Harrison to change their instruments...lack of variety in terms of register, depriving the ear of sufficient input at the upper frequency range, thus muddying the whole effect. Many of E.M. Skinner's works are guilty of this; great on the solo/accompaniment stuff, mushy and obtuse on the loud chordal/melodic parts, and death to counterpoint (which isn't an issue with Sowerby, but...I threw that in!).   ><< The same could be said of the third movement, although it takes a LOT= of > doctoring to keep it interesting.

Many of the unison/unified disasters that passed for organs from, say, 1900 to 1930 (the infamous "organ revolution/Hope-Jones era") could make chaff out of just about ANY music played upon them. Fancy use of couplers and octave-up playing was necessary to extract any sort of brilliance out of them, and in such a case, the tonal balance was simply awful.   >Also, not to beat a dead horse,=20 >but American-Classic organs are not as exciting to listen to as the= romantic=20 >ones they sought to improve.

Although these ideas are matters of taste, and are thus subjective, I do believe that Harrison's work at =C6-S was quite a bit more successful than was M=F6ller's= , what with the stringy principles, choked-chicken reeds and absolutely banshee-style mixtures. Many later M=F6llers have been "fixed", to a degree= , but they were, on the whole when new, a pretty awful lot, especially in the 1960s.   ><<Could it be the the failure of longer, multi-movement > works is at least partially the fault of the performer, not all with the > composer? >> > >An excellent point.

I think that, time being money, most teachers at any level don't want to simply spend the time to hear something like the Rhubke over and OVER again...much better to spend time of some 3 page "color pieces", and critique those!

The Jongen is a stunning work when performed properly, and shows off both organ and orchestra to best advantage. It certainly isn't for the faint of heart, however, at least in terms of performing it! The "spacey/dreamy" third movement holds the audience in a rapt state of suspended time and space, and then comes the delirious fourth, probably = one of the most emotionally evokative pieces of music composed in the very-late-Romantic/somewhat Modern genre. It's a shame more musical directors don't attempt it. At all performances of it I have attended, it always rousts the audience to its feet in ovations.   DeserTBoB

(back) Subject: Information needed From: <CdyVanpool@aol.com> Date: Tue, 4 Jul 2000 00:47:08 EDT   Dear List, Well, I am gonna try it again: ( maybe I won't be jumped on again = ) I have searched over the composer's lists here on the Net, and I can't = find any kind of bio on Gilbert M. Martin. I know he went to Westminster Choir College and has had much music published by Lorenz... I think he has moved = on from them... but that is all I can find out. If anyone has any information = or knows a site I can get that information from, I would really appreciate = it. Van Vanpool
