Although what we would consider completely unstylistic, he does = get away with it. For example he plays all of the pedal broken chords on the = en chamades and at the end of the fugue, he does the most fabulous = diminuendo. Although many would (including me, and don't start a debate the topic!) frown upon changing registration during a BACH Prelude or Fugue (I say or because he would have easily have been able to between the two), Cochereau definitely does bring something else out of the music than one might normally hear. I'm waffling now so I'd better stop!   Richard.

Why do we have to apologize for liking something that's interpreted differently? Music, in order to be music, can't remain static, it has to = grow and evolve. If it is still beautiful, and exciting then it's still music worthy of the name, music.   Virgil Fox' major contribution to organ music was, he made organ music enjoyable to the average, and perhaps not so average Joe and Martha. He was so successful Joe and Martha also made him extremely wealthy. He filled concert venues = like no other. The nay sayers are still poor!

(back) Subject: In paradisum (attention RC organists) (X-posted) From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Tue, 18 Jul 2000 16:00:34 -0700   There exists SOMEWHERE a paraphrase of "In paradisum" in English in Long Metre (L.M.) ... I have had it; I have lost it.

(back) Subject: Re:Chambers (long) My 2 cents worth From: <TRACKELECT@cs.com> Date: Tue, 18 Jul 2000 19:38:33 EDT   Bruce (Beagle) writes that chambers are always bad and that an architect = is better advised to leave them out of the plans entirely. Wrong. But! In = some cases right. One must be open minded about this. I have seen organs in chambers that were totally successful. I give as example a Schantz organ = in Culpepper Va. I can't remember if it was the Baptist or Pres. But in any = case the organ is in two chambers separated by at least 40'. The Great on the right with the Choir in a swell box suspended within. The Swell on the = left. When I was first sent to service this organ I thought "This is going to = take a lot of work, I'm going to be re-pitching these divisions constantly". I = was wrong. All of the chamber walls are interior walls, thus not effected by outside temperatures and the Swell has shades on two sides. The interior = of the chambers is hard plaster with gloss white paint. The organ projects beautifully and the tuning is rock solid. Even the reeds need little = tuning. On the flip side, I service a 1925 Hillgreen Lane in two chambers = separated by about 12' . The Great on the left, on two levels and the Swell and = Choir on the right with the Swell on top. The organ projects beautifully because = of ample tone openings but the tuning is horrendous. The organ is only in = tune at 10:00 AM because that is when we tune it. The chamber walls are = exterior walls and the air circulation is very bad. Constitution Hall in DC has an = EM Skinner in chambers that are so high and with such small tone openings = that the tuner needs a radio set to communicate with his key holder. It has a = Tuba on 25" of wind that is so loud that it's tone felt like an actual physical =   presence in the room while I was tuning it. An entity! And I was wearing earplugs. Yet, out in the room it sounds like a mild Cornopean. Chambers = too deep and openings too small. Poor E. M., he did what he could. However, = given my druthers I prefer to build organs in cases because I have absolute control. I am now restoring an organ in a case that probably would have = been better in a chamber because the case resides within a little amphitheater. =   The case is very cramped and makes tuning almost impossible. One has to be = an acrobat merely to enter the case. The original builders could have simply built a divider wall between the Great and Swell within the chamber/ampetheatre and the entire organ would have shared a common air = space thus stabilizing the tuning and there would have been room for tuning and things like the bottom octave of the Salicional (common bass with the = Stopped Diapason - now there's a good match! ). Chambers can work but they have = to be well designed and architects that understand organ design are as rare = as honest politicians. Cases work well but have to be designed by an = experienced organ builder, not someone who knows how to draw pretty pictures for proposals and blue prints and how to cram pipes in any old witch - way. = Ten years of service experience, minimum! Just had to get that off my chest.   Alan B
