(back) Subject: Bach Little 8 From: "William T. Van Pelt III" <wvanpelt@erols.com> Date: Fri, 13 Apr 2001 07:49:08 -0400   Dear Tommy Lee and list,   There are three recordings of all 8 in the OHS catalog, and all three are good. However, one is played on the Pedal clavichord by Harald Vogel so those who prefer to hear them on the organ can pick one of the other two.   The two played on organs include:   another CD by Vogel called The Young Bach, LRCD-1009 $14.98, played on the Brombaugh at Central Lutheran in Eugene, Oregon -- a beautiful organ.   The more popular recording of the Little 8 is played by Pascale Rouet on the 1725 Mourcherel organ restored as a 4-44 to Dom Bedos' specifications in the Abbey church in Mouzon, a town in the Ardennes mountains of northern France. CD-720 $17.98.   Pays your money and takes your choice!   By the way, these both appear on page 20 of the OHS 2001 catalog. You can find them on the web store at http://www.ohscatalog.org by clicking first on recordings, then on the category "German Composers to 1750" or wording to that effect. Then you will get a long list to peruse. Or, you can use the search engine on the website and simly search on the string "little preludes". Leave out the eight.   Thanks for asking.   Cheers,   Bill

We'll   never live this thing down...."   Mr. Scarborough and List:   With all the pro and con comments about this organ for looks, sounds, and stop list, I am now a bit confused. Most of the comments have said that the stop list is fairly traditional (but with reservations about Rosales voicing). Since I have played very few large organs and know less about "What works" for this concept, I would love to see you comment in detail on what is right or wrong by stop, division, and the whole. Obviously I would greatly like to see others dissect the stop list in detail too, so that I may benefit from the collective knowledge of this list.   respectfully   Bruce Dersch

I had them sing "Hear him cry!" in UNISON, backed by Full Swell to Reeds for the chords; then just a soprano soloist for "learn of Jesus Chist to die" with the choir coming back in at the "amen."   The Rector really outdoes himself preaching on these three days ... ANOTHER stunning sermon on the foot-washing as metaphor WITHOUT repeating himself from last year. Last year it was on the radical ritual and social implications for the believing Jews; this year he connected it to the necessity of serving others BEFORE one comes to the Eucharistic meal.   Time for breakfast (grin) ...   Cheers,   Bud

I'm not positive, but early (1930s) Hammond oil could have indeed been mineral base stock light = machine oil, akin to what's now known as ASTM AW 75 viscosity or even lighter. This is partially confirmed by lots of black "sludge" found in prewar tonewheel generators I have serviced over the years, caused by the mixing of mineral and naphthalene based oils, which will cause carbonization. In any application, mixing of mineral oil with other base stocks, such as paraffin or asphaltum, would also lead to carbonization = and oil failure. Laukauf's lubrication specification should indeed be consulted, and the proper base stock and grade of oil obtained locally. I'm still willing to bet good money it's light amber turbine = oil, however.   DeserTBoB

(back) Subject: Hold the Horses! Disney's not THAT bad! From: "diaphone 64" <diaphone64@hotmail.com> Date: Fri, 13 Apr 2001 15:30:27 -0400   Hey, fellow listers....   Before any more bashing is done on this instrument, let's listen to some = of the youngsters on the list.   As for me, an 18 year old student organist, I REALLY like this = instrument!! In fact, I LOVE it!!!   If one will stop bashing the new instruments that are being produced and start doing some reading about the HISTORY of the instrument (all of them overall), one will see that there have been MANY different trends = throughout the life of the instrument.   This is just ANOTHER move in the organ-modernization movement.   Let's start at the Hydraulis, little, puny, not such a great sound (by today's standards) - yet considered to be "the best thing since sliced bread".   Next (leaping a LARGE gap), there was the larger and more complicated instruments of Germany. Sillbermann with his clean and bright Prinzipals were first considered too harsh and sharp. Later they became the best = there was - no comparision!   Then we had the estimed Aristide Caville-Coll... you bet those instruments he built weren't met with no critizism. Now, well.... = they're a treasured piece on work worth more than the building they are in!!!! = And wonderful works are being brought back to life on these instruments.   Next we moved into the Symphonic Movement. Although short-lived, they were another step in the organ-modernization movement. The Kotzshmer = Austin Organ in Portland was just rebuilt and restored, as just one example. = MANY of the organists the older generations knew played those instruments.   The treasured/dreaded Theatre Organ movement was another short-lived period. But were considered priceless by MANY of the movie palaces until the advent of the "talkies".   The miniature instruments in residences were a booming industry in the Great Depression era and the WW's. Now a reaccuring trend.   Then we had the American-Classic movement with the trend to get back to =   the Sillbermann instruments. Headed up by G. D. Harrison at Aeolian-Skinner. Still a trend in the US today!   Think of all the facades of these instruments: Sillbermann's had towering =   32' tin Prinzipals in the "Werkprinzip" design; Caville-Coll went to the some-what flat/smoothed-out facades, eliminating the different divisions = in different cases and enclosed the entire instrument in one structure; Symphonic instruments had intricate facades with gold-leafing and complicated hand-carvings; Theatre Organs had a large grill (or two) on = the side of the Proscenium or with a set of individually-flapping shutters = with lighted percussions and glass chambers; Residence instruments are usually behind a "Mellow-tone Cloth" or stuffed into a large closet or an addition =   speaking through a window; the American-Classic instruments had facades similar to Caville-Coll's - with the one coming to mind, St. Patrick's Cathedral.   Do you see any particular style that has survived the ages? No. All of them still exist, although in varying numbers. This Disney instrument is just another "stage" in the organ world, which will probably not make it, but then again - who knows!   I'm thinking of Virgil Fox and his concert at Riverside which was all full =   of "hippies" at which the two pastors (husband/wife team) attended as a = date one year. The place was full of youngsters in the 70's clothes, and = having fun being "hip". Fox had a light show and his fancy clothes and lighting shoes - all flashy and whathaveyou. THIS is how you get younsters to the organ!! Not by having the old (but faithful) lady who has played every = year at the same little two-manual Tracker with the buried console since the = dawn of the church play a little recital with the "Classic Gospel Hymns" on the =   8' & 4' Diapason with the 16' Bourdon on the pedals. To me, that's something I won't attend.. too boring. (Again, an 18 year old's perspective)   I would die to go see a talented organist play a recital with the glitz = and glamour and lighting shoes and a laser-light show on a little two-manual Tubular-Pneumatic ciphering C. E. Morey then that old, faithful, lady and the Hymnal.   Point? Diane Bish was the one who got me interested in the instrument. Those sequine gowns and gold shoes. Fox may have been excentric by = today's standards, but the young people LOVED him!   This Disney instrument is just another step in the forward direction.   But you know what? It's not what's on the facade the counts, it's what on =   the inside. The craftsmanship, the metalwork, the voicing, the console controls, the winding system... all this makes the instrument. NOT what the public sees.   I have played a little two manual T-P instrument that had a horrendous(!) looking facade... dings and dents, chipping paint, dent and smashed dummies... but when I hit the blower switch and played the first chord, = the sound that emminated from that instrument was just FABULOUS!! I had to be =   told to get off the instrument after playing it for about 5 hours = straight!!   Then again, I played a beautiful-looking organ.. en Chamades, towering = 16' tin Diapasons, exposed Chimes, exposed Swell shades (tastefully done)... but when I played the first chord, the sound I got out of it was shrilly, course, unrefined, and just plain disgusting! After about an hour of = trying different combinations, NOTHING sounded good!! There were ciphers, "running" stops, sticking keys, broken leaking windlines - all of which = was only 10 years old!!   Before any more bashing of Virgil Fox, Diane Bish, or the Disney = instrument is done, PLEASE take your mind off that one-way track of "What is now is = the best and will never be better"... 'cause it just ain't that way, folks!!   We have to protect the past and embrace the future.. that's the ONLY way = the organ is going to survive!   Respectfully, Jason Comet Organist - Emmanuel Congregational Church - Watertown, NY (Which uses drums, tambourines, guitars, keyboards, and ORGAN!) _________________________________________________________________ Get your FREE download of MSN Explorer at http://explorer.msn.com
