Brown" <clmoney@cybernex.net> Date: Tue, 13 Jun 2000 15:22:04 -0000   Well   The hall in question, Skinner Hall (great irony here), is a small college recital hall. I have played the G-M there and it is, in my opinion, a flexible and usable instrument that lends itself to a variety of styles. Perhaps a little voicing work, and maybe some pipe relocation, could do wonders for an already good instrument. But to replace it with an = instrument of limited flexibility is a supreme act of stupidity and a complete waste = of money.   I know of no institution that has been completely happy with a baroque tracker organ in place of a broader range instrument.   Charles E.

To my recollection, G-M had replaced most of the principal choruses and many chorus reeds (in the '70's, I think...), and added scads of upperwork. Please, somebody correct me if I'm wrong about either the "tonal remodeling" or the time of its installation!   If, however, the thing *is* as I remember seeing it via stoplist, it wouldn't take much imagination to guess what it *really* might sound like now...remember all that awful stuff that happened to old romantic organs = in the '70's...??? :-(   Perhaps they're best to sell it off as parts -- at least somebody might be able to use the remaining "real" Kimball material, and the rest of it = could likely be almost-virgin 17th halving pipework -- only needing a voicer to turn it into something. It would probably be fabulous if restored to its Kimball specs -- but as DB implies, that's an unlikely proposition. Too bad.   Cheers!   Tim         "Pipe Up and Be Heard!"

Brown" <clmoney@cybernex.net> writes: > By the way.....where was Merilyn Gallagher in all this decision > making????? > > Charles > Dear Chatters,   Perhaps I can shed some light on this subject, since I was investigating this instrument for possible use in my church.   1) Vassar College has TWO Gress-Miles organs ! The larger, in the chapel, will remain. The smaller one located (strangely enough) in "Skinner Auditorium" is to be replaced with a new mechanical instrument.   2). The reason for the new organ is simple. An alumni dropped a large check on the College with the stipulation that it could only be used for a new organ !   3). The Gress-Miles/Kimball does retain much of the "Kimball sound" according to Merilyn Gallagher when I spoke with her on the phone about a month ago.   4). Gress-Miles did "pile on" a huge amount of brightwork and some of it is reportedly a tad too "present" (ie. Screech city)   5). I spoke with the organ technician who has maintained the instrument for the past 18 years and he stated that it was in wonderful condition and has never had any significant problems. (In fact, he said that he can't remember the last time he had to open a chest)   6). I was told (but now, can not remember by whom) that the new organ will be by Fritz (not Fisk).   I have NOT heard this organ, but after speaking with several people who were quite familiar with the instrument, I concluded that it could be a wonderful instrument for a medium sized church. There is a stong possibility that the mixtures would have to be "weeded out", cut back, reduced of whatever, and certainly a total revoicing would be in order.   After speaking with knowledgable people I came to the conclusion that the instrument could be removed, reinstalled, had the relay and combo action replaced, and been revoiced to its new home for under $ 300,000 TOTAL.   It would be my guess, that in most situations, some of the ranks would not be reused. There are just TOO many ranks of mixture, IMHO.   GREAT: Mixture V-VII Zimbal III SWELL: Acuta IV-VI POS: Scharf III-V PEDAL: Mixture VI     If anyone would like the complete spec., I will email it individually.     Douglas A.

And excessive volume = in general? I seem to remember playing one somewhere in Texas ... the Vox Celeste would part your HAIR, and it went UP from THERE.   If the new organ at Vassar is to be by Paul Fritts (sic), formerly of Fritts-Richards, if he by himself builts anything like he and his former partner built, it will be a GLORIOUS instrument, capable of playing just about ANYTHING, bows to Schnitger notwithstanding.   The Fritts-Richards instrument in All Souls' Episcopal, Point Loma (San Diego) is one of the finest organs I've ever played, and I've played a = lot. It is a very compact, medium-sized three manual instrument, and NOTHING is wasted ... no "throwaway" stops ... the voicing can only be described as "exquisite" ... in the Schnitger tradition, the only 16' pedal flue is a Principal ... it just sits there and PURRS. It fits under everything from = the Brustwerk Gedeckt to the full organ ... that takes REAL voicing skill. The other 16' in the Pedal is a wooden-resonator Trombone, and IT can fit = under virtually anything as well! The coupled "fonds d' orgue" does justice to Langlais and Dupre, etc. etc. etc.   I could go on and on ... I truly love that instrument. If Vassar is = getting a Fritts, they're truly fortunate.   Cheers,   Bud   P.S. - no, I'm not on Fritts' staff (grin)

The GM action was an electro mechanical ( Direct Electric ) action developed in the late 1950's as an alternative to "the other" electro mechanical action available at that time which had a reputation for poor pipe speech and bouncing. There is no leather to wear = out except the pallet leather and that should last close to 100 years. Also: I knew Ed Gress quite well having worked for him for four years. GM organs are not always understood. Ed spent several years in Germany = studying organs. He knew Von Bekerat very well and had a thick book of scales that = he gave to him. He could walk you through a stoplist and say " that's = Silberman, that's Schnittger, thats Dom Bedos" etc.The way he built organs was by = first building the core of a Baroque organ and adding other stuff to that. If = you think a GM is heavy on mixtures open the books and look at the stoplists = of real Baroque organs. Ed also worked for Aeolian Skinner and knew GDH and = the rest of the crew. On the converse he had the pseudonym of Don DeWitt as a theater organist. He made two recordings on the Detroit Fox Wurlitzer. If = you asked me, given his druthers, he would have been building theater organs. Although I didn't work on the Vasser projects I know that Ed had a great respect foe Kimball organs and I am sure that he used the original ranks well. Yes, 'Aggressive Miles' organs are full voiced. But that's the way = Ed perceived the organs he heard in Germany. Von Bekerat organs can be that = way too.
