(back) Subject: Re: Grand Choeur / Resonance From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Fri, 05 Jan 2001 14:52:47 -0800   Grand Choeur and Resonance are two different things:   In his largest organs (St. Sulpice and Notre Dame), Cavaille-Coll further = divided the Grand Orgue on two keyboards: Grand Orgue and Grand Choeur, placing = the Jeux de Fonds on the Grand Orgue and the Jeux de Anches on the Grand Choeur. I = forget exactly what this was supposed to accomplish, as the effect was the same = as the normal ventils ... you just had an extra keyboard. I suppose it was easier = to prepare two registrations on the two keyboards and just change manuals, = rather than wrestling with the ventils.   Resonance manuals, on the other hand, appeared late in the French baroque. = They were not, as somebody said, "pedal extensions", but rather the other way = around. The Resonance manual was a complete manual division with 16' flues (and = reeds?), which French pedal organs at the time lacked. It was permanently COUPLED = to the Pedale, so whatever you drew on the Resonance played on the Pedale as = well.   It was an idea that came and went pretty quickly, as far as I know ... I = can only recall one organ from that period with a Resonance manual, and I can never remember the name of the church ... Bob Anderson students, help me out = here ... he used to talk about it in Organ Seminar.   Rieger-Kloss seems to have revived the idea in their organs in a slightly different form ... I believe the stops are DUPLEXED from the Resonance to = the Pedal, so the two can be used independently. It could be useful, I = suppose, in a large organ, since it would provide large-scale solo stops in the manual.   Cheers,   Bud

(back) Subject: Transcription of Largo from Dvorak's New World (x-post) From: "Pat Maimone" <patmai@juno.com> Date: Fri, 5 Jan 2001 18:51:29 -0500   Dear Pipechatters:   Asking a favor for a colleague who is a non List member... His family has requested the "Largo" from Dvorak's New World Symphony for a memorial service.   Years ago, I remember seeing it in a collection "The Organ in Church" by Frank Asper (or perhaps A. Schreiner) that belonged to my first organ teacher, Sibyl Komninos Sharp. I also recall accompanying an English horn soloist in an arrangement for English horn and piano or organ. Does anyone have another edition or access to the afore-mentioned transcription?   Thanks very much for checking.   Regards from the snowy Northeast..   Pat Maimone Post Chapel West Point, NY patmai@juno.com yp6867@usma.edu _________________________________________________________________________ ___________________     ________________________________________________________________ GET INTERNET ACCESS FROM JUNO!

It's basically a gussied-up Super-B, which was technology left over from interim Japanese owner Nichon =   (?...some Japanese outfit; I forget the name). Hideo Suzuki (NOT from the =   motorcycle-car outfit) bought it out and has bankrolled a much improved product line, such as the XB/XC-3M, the current digital copy of the infamous B and C-3s. They also produce a new Elegante model aimed at the home console market (as IF there is one), and slap their badge on three Content AGO consoles made by Electronium. The new 3 manual is coming to = LA this month. If you've seen a Content, you've seen/heard this already.   Safe to say, NONE of the current models could ever measure up to the legendary durability of the old tonewheel models...nobody builds 'em like that anymore! You can say what you will about the old tonewheelers tonally...but you just CAN'T kill 'em!   DeserTBoB

NE is now, of course, Nortel, after being Northern Telcom for years. Northern Hammonds were built as "tray" organs, wherein the tonewheel generator and other miscellaneous parts were shipped from = Chicago in a tray, and assembled in Canada. Northern used much different electronics in their early models than did Hammond, and someone using a schematic for, say, a US Model E or C-20 tone cabinet is in for a rude shock! Northern Hammonds are becoming somewhat collectable.   DeserTBoB

This one reminds me of a good one from my college days. My organ teacher was giving a recital on a recently installed organ in a nearby = town. Three of us students went along to hear.   The organ was a Tracker (Karl Wilhelm, builder If I remeber correctly.) = and the swell shades are clearly visible from the congregation. During the concert, one of my fellow students was assisting by adding and taking off stops. Behind the rest of us were two old ladies. Often, as John would reach over to move a drawknob, they noticed the swell shades moving. "What's that guy doing? Why can't he let the man play.? He's messing with the organ! Why doesn't that man push him away?"   We sat there through the whole first half of the concert, tyring to keep from snickering. It was a funny experience.   Best wishes, Mike
