Certainly, the minute one starts playing in more than one octave, there is no effect, as all of the pipes are already in use. The second big problem, of course, is that this mass of tone is doing the SAME THING in each and every octave of the compass, having no musical line within the context of the organ's tonal structure. Edgar Gress was known for his repeating, I-rank "Kunstzimbel."   In the long run, it really doesn't cost much more to build a balanced four-rank mixture than a harmonically lopsided three-ranker. And why pay your "builder" to spend all the time wiring up three fake mixtures out of a few dozen pipes, when you might just want to spring for the real thing and have the instrument regarded with some degree of seriousness? --   Sebastian brings up excellent points and arguments for not cutting corners in organ building. This is the reason I love mechanical action instruments (with mechanical stop action). I guess it's because we're from (Maryland) and there are a host of organs in churches around here built on one principal from the pedal up. ( I wonder who that could have been?). This is just as bad and a real musical failure for hymn singing as the organ is musically full of holes when all of the stops are pulled. If there was any negative point to the marriage of electricity an pipe organs, this would be it for me. At least with mechanical atop action there is no cutting corners!   Wayne  
(back) Subject: Re: Re Sebastians comments on fakes From: "Ross Wards" <TheShieling@xtra.co.nz> Date: Mon, 3 Dec 2001 09:34:44 +1300   It's all very well to speak of trackers and all of that, and I agree = 100.2% in theory, but in practice beggars can't be choosers. In a lot of small churches we either have to put up with what is already there or get something ourselves. As a just-retired clergyman who is also President of the local Organists' association (what a weird combination, like both = sides in a war being the same army :-) ) I am too aware of this. In my first parish there were five churches - one had a small electronic, = spinet-thing, which was hideous beyond compare; the second had a 1-deck American organ driven by a noisy vacuum cleaner; ditto the third; the fourth had a good blower to a sizeable harmonium; the fifth had an electric-action but on slider chest little organ a few years of 8 4 2 Larigot 1, 5 straight ranks = - paradoxically they sold this to me later and bought an electronic, to my disgust and delight mixed. In the second parish, I had a 2rk Compton unit = of Gedackt and Diapason installed which I had obtained for nothing, and I managed to add a2nd Dulciana and Oboe for free. The 3rd parish, one of the smallest, had a 22rk Bevington from 1865 - 1886; this is a fine organ tonally but has been electrified. The 4th parish had a badly-maintained = and sited 4rk unit organ 1962 of Diapason, Gemshorn, Stopt Diap (wood) and small-compass 3rk repeating Mixture. I got this organ shifted above the = west door, rebuilt and revoiced and it is amazingly effective, for what it is. Tonally, it's stunning. On just 2.8" wind. The "Mixture" is 22.26.29 for 1-12, 15.19.22 to C above MidC, then 8.12.15 to the top. It adds a = brilliant top for hymn-singing but, because of the scaling and repetitions, I never used it for solo music. And in the parish I've retired to, there are 3 churches: two have 2-deck electronics, the third has a 1-deck electronic: and nothing will convince them they ought to consider a real organ, new or 2nd-hand. The Croft firm here in New Zealand made a number of these = repeating-mixtures in the 1960s and 1970s,k probably using as their model the thousands made = in Britain by the J.W.Walker firm and doubtless copied in many other = countries as well. Judging from my little 5k job here, I'd rather have a straight 1ft = Principal than a repeating Mixture. This adds a singing brilliance without = harshness, over the top of 8 4 2 & 1 1/3, that is unbelievable, blending in = perfectly. Yet it is also superb in any other combination, e.g. 8 & 1. It's "chorus" = is best at 8 4 2 1, i.e. without the Gemsquint 1 1/3.

(back) Subject: What to do with the base? From: "Jeff Stanway" <jstanway@mail.island.net> Date: Sun, 02 Dec 2001 12:35:23 -0800     I'll briefly peek out from behind the lurking curtain to ask about the use of base stops. I'm looking for a brief, non-technical explanation on how to use the pedal organ and its stops. Our church has an intermeniate model Allen with a full range of pedal stops, from 32' to 4'. The two organists are 70+ years old and play with the typical single-note fill-in base style. Recently they have noted that they really don't know what to do with all the stops, and rely on old punch-card presets. This pulls down two of the three 16' tabs for everything, leaving a rather throbing base and a two octave gap between the base and the keyboard. Is there somewhere I can download a one or two page introduction to the pedal organ and what to do with the stops?   Thanks - Jeff

It was an extremely moving service; the music was beautiful. If anyone happened to see this, I'm looking for the title of one of the hymns sung (and the title was flashed on the screen but I forgot it as soon as I saw it). This hymn was sung, I'm thinking, midway thru the service. I do have the title to one of the hymns sung, "The Day Thou Gavest, Lord, is Ended", St. Clement.....so it isn't that one. If anyone saw this, might he or she remember the name of this hymn I'm looking for? Many thanks! -Jane Hanudel   PS: The hymn I want to know about was sung BEFORE "The Day Thou Gavest, Lord, is Ended"........was sung.

Opening this provides the full = detail of the service. I believe the hymn you are looking for is "Dear Lord and Father of Mankind" sung to "Repton"     HD

Of course if he CAN do it, bow deeply and call him SIR!! Yes, it = is a secular piece and I have not a clue as to what to suggest fitting for Christmas Eve on trumpet.   Best wishes, Jim Pitts
