(back) Subject: RE: LA archdiocese cans Dobson? From: "Randy Terry" <randyterry@laumc.org> Date: Thu, 11 Jan 2001 09:15:42 -0800       -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org]On Behalf Of Bob Scarborough   LATE-BREAKING RUMOR: Word is circulating in LA that the LA archdiocese's new barn (known to most as "Mahoney Memorial") has trashed the Dobson/Rosales organ proposal, and will instead reuse the aged but capable Wangerin rebuilt by Austin c. 1990 that resided at "St. Vibrator's" up until the '94 Northridge quake. The Rosales proposal, you may remember, was rigged against Austin, since Rosales specified (for reasons unknown) that slider chests were a requirement, thus knocking Austin out of the running for bidding on the new cathedral's organ. Evidently, this "wired" contract with Dobson through Rosales has now fallen apart, due to extreme cost overruns and the attendant dyspepsia this causes with the Chancery, who's already under fire for building this thing anyway.   ****************   While I have nothing against Dobson or Rosales. I really like the Seattle Rosales in St. James'.   However, when I heard that the St. Vibiana's Austin was just sitting there apparently to go unused, when it was built in the 80's - using a good bit = of the older material, I thought it was terrible stewardship to NOT consider using whatever percentage of that inventory that would fulfill the musical needs of the parish. I however, have heard no such rumors.   Randy    
(back) Subject: Moller Reeds From: "Randy Terry" <randyterry@laumc.org> Date: Thu, 11 Jan 2001 09:25:38 -0800   I have often found that Moller reeds, particularly in the period that is often considered their low point - the late 60's, 70's, and early 80's, = were far, far ahead of the fluework in regards to character, interest, and quality. On the other hand, I've played a number of mid sized 3 manual instruments from the 50's where the flue work, though dated, and the reeds are more equal in character. The reeds in this period in the rather utilitiarian organs I am speaking of are not bad, they just are not particularly interesting either. One characteristic of these instruments that I have found very useful is that even in a good sized 3 man/pedal = with 30-35 ranks, often the only mixture was in the Swell. When these instruments *work* which many do very well, they are quite good in church playing. I have a feeling that if any of these are left, they will become the Skinners of the future - although I can't say that even the best ones = I have played should be left untouched.   I had a little Moller series organ (8 rks) built in 1979. It had a unit Trompette with a 1/2 L. 16' bass. It was small scaled, but boy, that reed was just a wonderful workhorse reed. More French than English, but it did not obliterate everything. Very nice. The rest of the instrument had to = be completely revoiced!   Randy

(back) Subject: Moller's reeds / an Austin reed question From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Thu, 11 Jan 2001 10:22:17 -0800   When I was in college, the subject was a standing joke:   "Where DOES Moller get their reeds?"   because we often wandered the Midwest playing and hearing different organ= s, and noted the MARKED difference in quality between Moller's reeds and Moller'= s flues.   Even the tiny Artiste I played at Holy Trinity-at-the-Beach in San Diego,= with its silly Swell consisting of Salicional 8-4-2, Vox Celeste 8, and Trompe= tte 16-8-4 had a GORGEOUS Trompette ... the ONLY interesting stop on the enti= re organ.   Old St. Mary's, Cincinnati was built by Austin in 1928; on the Great was = a GORGEOUS French Trumpet, totally unlike ANYTHING I've ever heard come out= of Austin, and totally unlike the REST of the reeds in the organ, which were rather coarse and undistinguished (at least in the organ loft ... a KAZOO sounded good downstairs in THOSE acoustics). There were no marks on the T= rumpet pipes, and since the Austin's predecessor was an 1841 Matthias Schwab tra= cker, I doubt that the pipes came from the old organ.   Anybody have any idea who was doing the reed work at Austin in those days= , and/or if there are any more outstanding Austin reeds surviving from that period?   Cheers,   Bud   Bob Scarborough wrote:   > At 03:17 PM 1/10/2001 -0500, you wrote: > >I understand from talking with Mr. Williams that the voicing was by th= e > >late Adolf Zajic of Moller.<snip> > > Zajic was M=F6ller's very creative and talented reed voicer for many mo= ons, > and he was well known to be an expert at regals of various types.
