From: "David Scribner" <david@blackiris.com> Date: Fri, 7 Dec 2001 05:52:03 -0600   Glenda   As one of the people on these lists that has actually seen and heard the instrument in question I have to agree with the other posts that a Hautbois would be the preferred reed for an addition to the organ. It would be much more versatile in that it would serve both the functions of a chorus reed along with being able to be used for solo work. And being a full length reed the tuning will be much more stable, provided it is a well made rank, which is important where you are located. Although space within the organ is at a premium if the builder has had the idea of adding a trompette style reed then he has a plan, hopefully from the very beginnings of the organ, to be able to install a full length reed. It really needs to be playable at 8' pitch on the manuals in order to be very usable for the literature you play.   Hope this helps and good luck with the Lessons and Carols service tonight   David

Remember, you already HAVE a solo color, in the form of the mutation combinations, even though they will never truly be in tune because they are derived from tempered ranks.   As far as using a double-tapered reed such as an Oboe or Schalmei is concerned, be careful with this one, too. If it is your only reed in the organ, then it becomes a primary color, which is either on or off. They = are pungent and nasal, and tend to whine if one couples them up at 4' in = addition to the unison. Remember that for CENTURIES, the Trumpet has been = considered the Diapason of the reeds, the fundamental first family of reed tone.   Sebastian Matthaus Gluck Tonal Director, Gluck New York, Restorers and Builders (newly appointed) Editor, the Journal of American Organbuilding

I am absolutely in agreement with everything you said - keep up the good = work. I would be very diappointed to attend a great church and not hear anything = which made me stand and take notice. I wept the time I attended the Cath. of S. = J. the D. and they played the State Trumpets (summer, nothing special Sunday). I = was equally diaapointed to attend Easter morning services at the Cathedral of = Granada (trumpets flying all over the facade), and hardly a peep out of the instrument(s).   Thanks for the inspiration of the day. Don't change anything!   Sincerely, Sam Westbrook   PS. Next time I am in NYC I will stop by.
