From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Mon, 10 Sep 2001 23:01:32 EDT   Dear Ed in Maine:   You have discovered an excellent use of a Dulciana rank. It was used on the Wanamaker, Atlantic City, St. Patrick's Cathedral organs years ago. Tuning a 2 2/3 Nasard perfectly in and extending to TC makes a fine celeste. It's a trick that I have pointed out before. They did likewise with tuning a tierce 3 1/5 and extending to TC and used the rank as an Unda Maris. It works. Aeolian Skinner tuners like Bob Sproule used the same sort of method increasing beats of an Unda Maris or Celeste every octave going up the scale. It takes on a tremolo quality in the top octave. Try it for a while and it will grow on you. If you down load the specs of any of the organs mentioned, Atlantic City especially, you'll see what I'm talking about. This is nothing new, but you gain something useful too.   Regards,   Ron Severin
