(back) Subject: wedding/28 prayerbook church ... POSSIBLE HAMMOND; somebody PLEASE post what the presets are From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Wed, 14 Mar 2001 18:03:28 -0800   Glenda, I wish I could be more help, but there really is no standard way = of doing it.   Low-church places would have ONLY the Prayer Book wedding service, with no = music during, except perhaps a solo after "Who giveth this Woman to be married = to this Man?" on page 301 of the '28 Prayer Book ... usually at that point the = bridal party goes from the chancel step up to the altar rail for the rest of the service.   OCCASIONALLY in VERY low churches the Lord's Prayer on page 302 is SUNG as = a solo (to the Malotte), but not very often.   Beyond that, all that's needed is prelude and postlude music. Some = churches permit the Wedding Marches; some don't.   IF there is a Nuptial Mass, it can either follow the wedding service, OR = the Mass can come first and the wedding service can come immediately after the Gospel.   I wouldn't BEGIN to guess at what to do in the case of a Nuptial Mass ... = EVERY parish celebrates the Mass slightly differently ... it could be a Low Mass = with hymns, a Sung Mass with just the Ordinary sung, or a Solemn Mass with sung propers and incense and all the trimmings.   You REALLY have to get with the priest and get the details (grin).   If it's a HAMMOND, somebody please post what the presets are ... I don't = have a list, and I don't remember them.   To start an older Hammond, press the START switch and count to ten; then = WHILE HOLDING THE START SWITCH, press the RUN switch and count to five, or = listen until you hear the motor get back up to speed; then RELEASE the START = switch, leaving the RUN switch in the "on" position.   Newer Hammonds have a single power switch.   Glenda, the presets are the reverse-color keys at the bass end of the = keyboard .... they bring on pre-selected combinations ... you can only depress one = at a time. Low "c" is the cancel. You can move from one to another without = depressing the cancel, but if you happen to get two down at once, just press low "c".   They are set up from softest to loudest, bass to treble ... black keys are basically ensemble combinations; white keys are solo stops. They DON'T = work the pedal stops (explained below). Swell "A" is "Full Swell with Reeds and = 16'" (yeah, RIGHT!); Great "A" is "Full Great with Reeds and 16'". The last two = keys, A# and B, are explained below:   You can also set up your own combinations on the four sets of drawbars ... = A# on the Swell presets controls the extreme left-hand set of drawbars at the = top of the organ; B controls the next set; the two brown ones in the middle are = for the pedal ... 16' and 8' ... they don't set on anything ... you have to work = them by hand ... Great A# on the presets controls the next set of drawbars to the = right, and Great B on the presets the last set to the extreme right.   The drawbars are all flutes ... the pitches from left to right are:   brown - 16 brown - 5 1/3   white - 8 white - 4 black - 2 2/3 white - 2   black - 1 3/5 black - 1 1/3 white - 1   Hammond registrations are written from left to right...   00-4312-000 would mean:   leave the first two brown drawbars all the way in;   pull out the first white drawbar to 4; pull out the second white drawbar to 3; pull out the black drawbar to 1; pull out the third white drawbar to 2;   leave the next two black drawbars all the way in; leave the fourth white drawbar all the way in.   You have to engage A# or B on the Swell or the Great and set your = combination on the corresponding set of drawbars.   See if your local library has a copy of Stephens Irwin's "Dictionary of = Hammond Organ Stops" ... that will tell you EVERYTHING (grin). Hammonds CAN be = made to sound TOLERABLE if you follow the combinations in the dictionary EXACTLY.   A good CLEAR hymn combination is: 00-8706-005 or 00-8807-006.   Hammond pedal volume is notoriously variable from organ to organ ... theoretically you should pull 88 on the two middle brown drawbars to = balance the above, but it depends entirely on the organ and how many tone cabinets it = has. You just have to experiment.   If it's a Concert Model with 32 pedals, there will also be a Pedal Solo Unit to the right of the Great ... big brown tabs ... it may or may not work (most don't), but if it does, it gives reedy solo pitches in the Pedal at 32 - = 32 - 16 - 8 - 4 & 2 (on one tab, I think) ... there's also an on-off tab, a mute = tab, and a volume knob. One of the 32' stops is supposed to be a Bourdon, the = other a Bombarde; neither does much below about low A or low G. You can use the = Pedal Solo Unit with the Pedal drawbars.   That's about all I can think of ...   Cheers,   Bud     Glenda wrote:   > Bud and others: I got an e-mail today from one of my former = parishioners > now in college at FSU, recently moved back from Washington, DC.

A tierce is certainly a third-sounding rank; that is why it is called a tierce. But that doesn't stop it from being the fifth harmonic.   Any organ pipe will sound harmonics as well as the fuindamental sound. In the case of an 8 ft. pipe the harmonics will be simple ratios of the fundamental tone.   8' =3D fundamental =3D 1st. harmonic 8/2' =3D 4' =3D octave =3D 2nd. harmonic =3D 1st. overtone 8/3' =3D 2.2/3' =3D octave quint or twelfth =3D 3rd. harmonic =3D 2nd. = overtone 8/4' =3D 2' =3D super octave or fifteenth =3D 4th. harmonic =3D 3rd. = overtone 8/5' =3D 1.3/5' =3D tierce or seventeenth =3D 5th. harmonic =3D 4th. = overtone 8/6' =3D 1/1/3' =3D quint or larigot or nineteenth =3D 6th. harmonic =3D = 5th. overtone 8/7' =3D 1.1/7' =3D septieme =3D 7th. harmonic =3D 6th. overtone etc., etc.   John Speller   ----- Original Message ----- From: "Bob Elms" <elmsr@albanyis.com.au> To: "PipeChat" <pipechat@pipechat.org> Sent: Tuesday, March 13, 2001 6:39 AM Subject: Re: mixtures     > Yes I know which note it sounds, but in all cases I have seen, it was > called a Tierce (third) - it is two octaves plus one third.

(back) Subject: Ben Van Oosten -- Did you know? From: "Dr. Darryl Miller" <organdok@safari.net> Date: Mon, 12 Mar 2001 23:08:16 -0500   Hi, Y'all!   I just thought I'd throw in a little trivia concerning Mr. Van Oosten and the organ at Holy Apostles. When the organ was new and was newly installed in the home (castle) of the Mooribroeks in the Dallas area, Ben Van Oosten was secured as the dedication recitalist.   The Mooribroeks are now residents of Boca Raton and members of our congregation. Joe told me at great length the wonderful story of how the organ was to be a modest 2-manual, but after a while, it sorta grew and grew and grew to the size it is today. Joe encouraged us to have Mr. Van Oosten for a concert, but after hearing the reports of so many organists who have opinions I respect, I think it may be time for Ben to make a = South Florida appearance!   Yours,   Darryl by the Sea   PS -- I'm going to Montreal this summer for the McGill Conference, so I'll finally get to see the you-know-what organ installed in the = you-know-where! :)
