(back) Subject: console standards From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Mon, 05 Mar 2001 09:25:28 -0800   In fairness, most garden-variety church organs probably SHOULD have standard consoles ... the only PRACTICAL consideration is that it's somewhat harder to build the pedal and coupler action for an AGO board on a tracker organ, but it can be done, and be done successfully.   Like tracker action, an AGO board is just that: an AGO board. It doesn't NECESSARILY imply ANY kind of ACTION or TONAL DESIGN. Cavaille-Coll organs have flat pedal-boards; some neo-baroque organs in the U.S. have AGO boards. I never considered a flat board for St. Matthew's, since we're re-using an existing AGO console shell.   BUT, in a university situation, there's a lot to be learned (mostly about articulation, fingering and pedalling) from being exposed to keyboards (manual and pedal) designed according to historical models.   If I'm not mistaken, the Brombaugh in Fairchild Chapel at Oberlin has the short bass octave, which is fine, because it's not INTENDED to be an all-purpose organ ... and it's the only organ on campus (as far as I know) that DOES have the short bass octave.   It can also be pumped by hand OR by the blower, and people who have played it tell me that DOES make a difference in the sound ... supposedly when the wind is raised by hand, it's more "alive" and flexible.   Would I want a hand pump in an urban church with multiple services and rehearsal? No, except possibly for emergencies, given Californian's current rolling blackouts (grin).   Would I take a position in a church with a tracker organ and a flat pedal-board? Absolutely, everything else being equal. Would I have one BUILT for my church? Tracker, maybe; flat pedal-board, probably not.   Cheers,   Bud

From: "Karl Moyer" <kmoyer@marauder.millersville.edu> Date: Mon, 05 Mar 2001 13:50:43 -0500   By all means: the Horatio Parker concerto, available on several CDs. It deserves far more perfomrances than it gets. I believe the Fleischer collection at the Free Library of Philadelphia has score and parts. It calls for stirngs, brass, timpani and (perhaps ) harp; in effect, the = organ, a wind instrument, becomes the woodwind sound.   Let successful, in my opinion: the Dupre concert in E minor. I = played this in college but fouond it less than fullly satisfying. Pietro Yon = and Enrico Bossi left us concerti that perhaps deserve a hearing every so = often. The two Josef Rheinberger concert (in F Major and G minor) are standards = in this field.   Howard Hanson left us a very difficult concerto for organ, strings and harp. Be prepared for lots of practice and make certain you have an excellent orchestra and lots of rheearsal time. David Craighead produced the definitive recording of that work.   There are lots of others, of course. In some cases, they probably deserve the oblivion into which they've fallen.   I'd certainly look at Horatio Parker first. Then perhaps = Rheinberger. The Guilmant organ/orchestra works are wonderful, but they are fully integrated works, rather than concertos with the organ as soloist. If that's what you want, go for Guilmant, either in d or in A. Try the A = major work; it gets fewer hearings and would be a welcome addition to the scene.   Cordially,   Karl E.
