I'm thinking that = eastern and western Asia have more in common with each other than either has (or had) with western European culture. Not so true now, perhaps, when Israel is pretty much a "Western" country. But historically.   Alan

(back) Subject: Something about reeds... From: "Philippe Beullens" <pbeullens@hotmail.com> Date: Tue, 02 May 2000 18:33:27 GMT   Dear collegues,   I'm an organ Master's student at the Belgian Lemmens Institute. At present I'm working on my thesis, which will be on the history of the trumpet reed.   Throughout the work, I want to figure out some answers on the following questions:   - How does a trumpet reed look like? - How is the tone being formed inside the pipe? - Where and when did the trumpet become an organ stop, and why? - Is there a link between the regal and the trumpet, and - if yes - what = was first? Regal or trumpet? - HOw did the trumpet get spread around into the European Organ building? - Which are the main construction differences between the different = European organbuilding styles? - How did they use the trumpet reed in the beginning? As a solo stop, or = in combinations with...? - Maintaining of the trumpet reed?   Contacting organ builders as well as sending this email through Piporg-L already brought me into a serious amount of interesting books and = websites. But I'm continu=EFng my research...   Could any of you maybe give me some hints on where I can find some more literature about this subject? Any advise or hint you could give me, = could be very useful for me.   Thank you very much in advance.   Sincerely   Philippe Beullens Organist Student at the Lemmens Institute of Louvain (Belgium) Naamsestraat 171/31 - B-3000 LEUVEN Belgium Gsm ++ 32 495 10 46 95 tel ++ 32 16 23 77 12 ________________________________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free E-mail from MSN Hotmail at http://www.hotmail.com
