Discovery Channel did a documentry   And we are to believe everything we read in the newspaper and see on TV? = ;-)     Seriously, though, I have seen, and thoroughly examined the written transcription of, the Alan Alda-hosted "documentary." This = general-interest program rapidly became a misinformation-filled promotional "puff" piece = for one modern day manufacturer of his new quartz-glass invention = unfortunately represented in other such sales promotions to be a replica (but at the = same time an improvement covered by various patents) of the Franklin armonica.   > And I've seen it in print about Harmonicas(Glass).   Let's get nomenclature straight first:   GLASS HARMONICA: a misspelling (apparently of German origin) of armonica, = the 1761 invention by Benjamin Franklin. Franklin's own term and spelling, specified in a letter to the Italian physicist Giambatista Beccaria dated July 13, 1762 that may be examined at Yale University, is 'armonica' = without the 'h' and stated by the inventor as coined in honor of the Italian language. Franklin also wrote, "I wished only to see the glasses disposed = in a more convenient form, all within the reach of a person sitting before = the instrument" and refers to his design of nested series of glass hemispheres =   mounted in a horizontal row, all of them on a single spindle and turned by = a treadle action.   And as for Harmonicas(Glass) - there are no other armonicas than those = made of glass. I collect the various other terms to describe similar glass instruments in the literature and have assembled a rather intriguing list:   PERCUSSION GLASS INSTRUMENTS include bars struck with mallets, both individual and keyboard operated: Glasspiel, Glassy-chord, Glass Dulcimer, =   Harmonica Delecta, Sticcardo Pastorale, Glassplatten Harmonika, Fortepiano = a Cordes de Verre.   FRICTION INSTRUMENTS of various materials but related to glass invention constuctions: Akukryptophon, Chalybssonans, Clavicylinder, Colestine, Eumatia, Oedephon, Terpodion, Triphon, Uranion, Xylomelodichord, = Xylosistron, Cristal Baschet   EXPERIMENTAL GLASS INSTRUMENTS include: Euphone (by Chladni, the = acoustician and inventor), Glass Carillon, Cymbaline d'amour (H.B. Victor invention = from October 17, 1774), the Pyrophone   EXOTIC HISTORICAL PERCUSSION INSTRUMENTS related to glass instrument = design: Bellarmonic (Metal cups), Coelison (Invention of Martin Kratschvil), Copophone (Stainer & Barrett dictionary 1888), Copologo, Crystallophone, Crystalphonicon, Eumelia (Tait, circa 1827), Filjan Saz (Persian), = Instrument de Parnasse (Grassa in Paris, 1796), Melk-Harmonika or Stockspiel- wood = rods rubbed with rosined fingers (Danish), Spirafine, Tusut- Arabic (mentioned = by Ibn Ghaibi, 1435) As for the word Harmonica (or Harmonika) it comes about from the free reed =   experiments that led in 1818 to the invention by Haeckl of Vienna a small reed organ which he called the Physharmonica (i.e. bellows harmonica), eventually led to the invention of the Harmonium by Debain of Paris in = 1848. Later the harmonium was given stops and other refinements, most notably by =   Alexandre and Mustel in Paris. The Mundharmonika (mouth organ) was simultaneously developed during 1821-22 by both C.F.L. (Driedrich) = Bushmann in Berlin, and Sir Charles Wheatstone, English physicist and inventor = (who called his invention the aeolina and, in 1844, changed to the symphonium = to cover his bellows-equipped version).   > Do you > now use lead glass?   No, so-called "white crystal."   > There have been several threads regarding > this in the media.

Perhaps your assessment of the safety of promulgating information is bettered accomplished by a = reassessment of the veracity of your own research.   ----   Noel Jones writes:   > Subject: Re: Glass Armonica > From: "noel jones" <gedeckt@usit.net> > Date: Fri, 16 Mar 2001 16:47:15 -0500   > Ron, you've got to be right about the lead poisoning.

(back) Subject: enclosed Great organs From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Fri, 16 Mar 2001 20:19:55 -0800   The Surf City Moller (1966) was 2 manuals, 11 ranks; two of the Great = ranks were in a separate swell box (!) ... Hohl Flute and Dulciana (plus the = chimes) (grin).   I would have everything but the Great principal chorus under expression in = two boxes in the re-install, if I had the room; but I don't, so the = second-best solution is to duplex at least the Swell 8's and the Swell reeds to the = Great, for flexibility in accompanying.   I've played small two-manual instruments with EVERYTHING in two boxes ... = they were successful if (1) the shades opened completely, and were from floor = to ceiling of the boxes, and (2) the acoustics were decent.   I think it depends upon what an organ has to DO, and the financial = resources available ... most Anglican choral music really NEEDS an enclosed third = manual .... practically everything in the 19th century English choral repertoire ASSUMES a three-manual organ, though enclosed choir organs came along relatively late in the 19th century.   So, given a two-manual organ, I would enclose at least SOME of the Great (flutes, strings, reeds) for the sake of playing the service.   Cheers,   Bud
