It's wonderful to play (it's mechanical with electric assists for the couplers which can be turned on or off depending on the performer) and wonderful to listen. The room is a modern room and has the curtains = and clouds where the accoustical environment can be adjusted to the performer. Todd Wilson has recorded a 19th Century French program, as well.   Give the organ and the recording a listen!

The stop name SHOULD tell you what sound you will be getting! Something =   that the more respectable builders today ARE doing! To think of disposing = of French/German/English stop names is silly. Perhaps on 'your' instrument there is no difference from a Trompette to a Trumpet but there should be. Like-wise, a Montre does NOT sound like a prinzipal! 2. Let's be musicans here. I suggest a course in orchestral conducting = for anyone wishing to get rid of stop names. Let's take a trumpet for = example. There are many variants in the orchestra: Trumpet in Bb / C / Db / Bugle / =   Cornet - and more. None of which sound alike! Being a conductor - if I point to the trumpet in Db - I expect I shall get the sound a Db trumpet makes. I would however - not want 5 brass players behind a screen and = have to guess/or try to remember which one is the Cornet and which is the C trumpet! A conductor is focused on the MUSIC not worrying about which instrument is going to sound like a clarinet! 3.

Skinner which is ever so = highly toted on this chat as being a pinnicle of American Organ Building used European names to describe new stops HE invented: Erzahler and Klein Erzahler (german), Violone 32' (french), Tuba Mirabilis (latin).

Perhaps on 'your' instrument > there is no difference from a Trompette to a Trumpet but there should = be. > Like-wise, a Montre does NOT sound like a prinzipal!   OK, I have a "dumb" question: FOR THE MOST PART, do French builders build = in non-French styles? Do German builders build in non-German styles? Now, = please note: those STYLES can embrace anything from the late-renaissance organ to = the modern "eclectic" organ, BUT in a distinctively French or German style nonetheless.   I think we're the only country that expects our organs to be "all things = to all music" ... the French play Franck and Bach on their Cavaille-Colls, or = their neo-classic whatevers; the Germans play Bach on the surviving "Bach" = organs (whether Schnitger or Silbermann ... I'm not gonna get into THAT argument) = ... I HAVE noted that FOR THE MOST PART they DON'T attempt to play romantic = music on those organs; they play Reger, etc. on the big romantic Walckers, = Steinmeyers, etc. ... in BOTH cases, NOBODY expects any ONE organ to be able to play EVERYTHING ... granted, if you have the knuckles, you CAN couple all the = 8' stops of all the manuals together on a baroque organ and play SOME = romantic music (given an adequate supply of air in the bellows), right up until the = point where you have to draw the REEDS. Likewise, a Cavaille-Coll ensemble can = be cleaned up for Bach to a certain extent by leaving out the flutes, or even substituting the broad-scale Violones for the too-wide Montres (!), or = even playing UP an octave, but nobody EXPECTS them to sound like a Schnitger. = And there's simply NO help for those atomic Bombardes (grin) ... "they is what = they is", as Mammy would say. So you leave them off or couple down the Recit = Basson, if you want a reed in the Pedal for Bach.   "Foreign" stop-names have ALWAYS "sold" in this country, WHETHER OR NOT = they actually represented the SOUND of the pipes. I cited one particularly = obnoxious cathedral organ that thought it could change its spots by changing its stop-names.   I plan to say to the builder of our organ that I want an English organ = with a French accent (or vice versa, depending on what side of the bed I get up = on that day), BUT, since we are an English-speaking Anglican congregation in an English-speaking country (and I already made allowances in an earlier post = for neo-Spanish organs built for the former Spanish Missions in California), I = WANT THE STOP-NAMES TO BE IN ENGLISH ...   Yeah, OK, I don't want "Human Voice" for Vox Humana, but that's LATIN, a UNIVERSAL language (grin); but I DO want "Double Flute" instead of the linguistically-challenged "Doppel Flute" (!), and "Spire Flute" instead of = the polyglot "Spitz Flute", etc. etc. etc. What matters to ME is that the = builder and I understand each other ... my "Harmonic Flute" may be a liquid French "Flute Harmonique", but it's gonna say "Harmonic Flute" on the pipes AND = on the stop-knob (tongue, rocker) ... I want reeds with French shallots in the = Swell, but they're gonna say "Harmonic Trumpet", "Oboe", "Harmonic Clarion", etc.   > 2. Let's be musicans here.

Nobody expects "The Early Music Ensemble" to = play Mahler; there may be a FEW people around who still prefer modern = instruments for "Messiah", but they're mostly dying out (grin). And NEITHER are expected = to play EVERYTHING. Should the organ be more all-encompassing than a 100+ member symphony orchestra???   > > 3.

I have pleaded for YEARS with owners of vintage organs of whatever era to discover the literature and the strengths of their instruments, rather = than bastardizing or "baroquing" them in a (vain) attempt to make a Schnitger = out of a Skinner. It's instructive that the neo-baroque elements were REMOVED = from the Washington Cathedral organ in the last rebuild ... instead, they added division(s) and stops to make it MORE of what it already WAS, since the = original organ was built before the great nave was opening, and needed "beefing = up".   I used to play a WONDERFUL restored 27-stop Koehnken and Grimm in = Cincinnati ... I played literature appropriate to the instrument, and there was PLENTY of literature (even some Bach) that worked perfectly fine.   Well, I got a little off track, but ...   Cheers,   Bud

After they took the old chairs out and before they put the new chairs in it was GREAT. There was nothing there! The room was like it was made of marble! Our big joke now is that we're going to burn all the carpets and the fuzz off of the seats before our recitals. ;)   -Rebekah
