I quote 'the largest is roughly a 5 = ft cube from which 5 or 6 chromatic notes may be obtained.'   So I find it difficult to believe that John Compton didn't bother with = notes below EEEE.   Although it may be true the ear cannot identify the pitch of a very low = note on its own, there will surely be some horrid beats against 16 and 8 ft = tones if the 32 ft octave were playing the wrong notes.   Bruce Miles   mail to:- bruce@gbmuk.fsnet.co.uk website:- http://www.gbmuk.fsnet.co.uk   ---- Original Message ----- From: "John L.

I didn't see many people mention this on their lists of music but it is a popular Easter hymn in the UK at least. I have made the descant available free of charge on the Sibelius Music website so that anyone can use it. I know it might be a bit late for this year, but I only got round to writing it once the school term had ended and it took a few days to get up to the website!   The address is http://www.sibeliusmusic.com/cgi-bin/showscore.pl?scoreid=3D20474. All I = ask is that you let me know if you're going to use it! It is totally free to print!   Feel free to look at some of the other scores while you're there!   Steve Organist and Choirmaster St Stephen's Canterbury   P.S. Thanks for all the help with the gedact!

We're getting bogged down with detail.   There were two versions of the Polyphone. The usual one was 8 notes from = EEEE to BBBB. The other version gave 12 notes from only 6 pipes.   They were noted as being extremely fundamental in tone; hence the ear = could not distinguish the actual pitch below EEEE.   Clifford Hawtin who worked for Compton wrote an article about the things = for the "Journal of the Inc. Soc. of Organ Builders" July 1952. CCCC = could only be achieved with a box 4ftX4ftX4ft.   They were a bit slow but very effective.   Harmonics 32ft used the harmonics suggested by a 32ft reed but without = the fundamental. In combination with a 32ft Polyphone and a Pedal 16ft = Trombone, the effect is really quite remarkable.   Clever man that John Compton!!=20   Regards,   Colin Mitchell=20 UK -----Original Message----- From: "pipechat@pipechat.org" <pipechat@pipechat.org> on behalf of "John = Foss" <harfo32@hotmail.com> Sent: 02 April 2002 18:47 To: "pipechat@pipechat.org" <pipechat@pipechat.org> Subject: RE: Compton Organs   It will be later in the year, but the only way to solve the question of=20 Compton's 32' basses will be to go and see (hear/listen) for myself - = unless=20 someone else has access to an instrument featuring the 32' Polyphone.

(back) Subject: Thanks for all of your advice... From: "Dennis" <hcbaroque@yahoo.com> Date: Tue, 2 Apr 2002 11:19:17 -0800 (PST)   Hi all,   Here is that response I have not been able to put together until now. It was mentioned that I include parts of previous response postings but I fear that my tardiness in responding in addition to adding those sections would have made this posting near the bouts of a novella. I apologize in advance for any confusion this posting might bring about. Thanks again to all of you for responding to my first posting. I will try to keep up with my responses from here on out.   Thanks, Dennis (Chicago)   NOEL, thank you very much for suggesting Dr. Butera as well as some churches to visit. I will definitely follow up as much as I can, school obligations allowing.   BRUCE, as of yet I don=92t have an organ at home but I do enjoy playing = the one at Church. I will definitely take you up on the invitation to discuss any ideas I might have. I am considering the summer convention. I will let you know if I decide to go. Thanks for the invite. I play a Baldwin Cinema Organ.   VICTORIA, I took care of that Rich Text Format. Thanks for letting me know which format is most acceptable.   DAVE, yeah, Chicago is definitely my home. I love it here. Actually, we=92re out in the western suburbs now for the same reason you sited = before. SIUC is quite a distance from DePaul. Our church is also not that large. We have about 150 members also (not including children). Youth in a choir definitely brightens up the music. We also have a church choir for which my brother serves as assistant conductor. Like every church choir, we have our qualms but focusing on the ideal that we are singing for = God=92s praise, and his glory alone, really helps. My position also doesn=92t pay much. Actually, it doesn=92t pay at all. I definitely agree with you on the delight church organ playing exudes.   Like I mentioned before, I am VERY ECSTATIC about mastering the Rondo in G. Since I am not home all that much, maybe you can mail it to the department where I work at school. The address is:   1 East Jackson Boulevard Department of Finance DePaul University Chicago, IL 60604 Attention: Dennis Stoia   I will definitely keep you posted on my progress on the piece once I receive the copy. Thanks Dave, your help is greatly appreciated.   MICHAEL, thanks for the suggestions for churches and the Morning Star catalog. I will follow up with your suggestions. Also, which church to you play for?   DAVID, Alright!!!, a fellow DePaulian. No, I know nothing of the organ at the University Church. As a commerce major, I rarely find myself anywhere near the Lincoln Park campus. Someone else also suggested Dr. Butera. Now, I will have to doubly follow up with that suggestion. Where do you play now?   RICK, I would like to visit your church and hear you play. Like I mentioned before, I=92m really interested in hearing other church = organists. Let me know if we can work something out for me to attend a service.       __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Yahoo!

(back) Subject: Re: Christmas music From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Tue, 02 Apr 2002 11:30:24 -0800   Interesting ... many years ago I revived singing Mattins and Lauds before the Midnight Mass of Christmas as a vigil service, in lieu of a Lessons and Carols service.   I think the choice of organ music would depend on the content of the service.   The Vigil Mass of Christmas, sung on Dec. 24th (and on the 4th Sunday of Advent when the 24th falls on Sunday) contains the following texts:   (Introit) - Hodie scietis   Today shall ye know that the Lord will come to deliver you: and at sunrise shall ye behold his glory. The earth is the Lord's, and all that is therein: * the compass of the world, and they that dwell therein. Glory be .... Today ...   (Gradual) - Hodie scietis   Today shall ye know that the Lord will come and deliver us: and in the morning shall ye behold his glory. Hear, O thou Shepherd of Israel: thou that leadest Joseph like a sheep: shew thyself also, thou that sittest upon the Cherubim, before Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasses. Today ...   (Alleluia) - Crastina die   On the morrow the iniquity of the earth shall be done away: and the Saviour of the world shall reign over us.   (Offertory) - Tollite portas   Lift up your heads, O ye gates: and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors, and the King of glory shall come in.   (Communion) - Revelabitur   The glory of the Lord shall be revealed: and all flesh shall see the salvation of our God.   If the Vigil service is being kept AS A VIGIL, then the theme is still waiting and expectation, as seen in the above texts, and I'd look for French noels that deal with THOSE subjects, or Advent chorale-preludes.   If, OTOH, it is simply an early service on Christmas Eve for convenience sake, as it often is today in a lot of churches, then normal Christmas music would be appropriate.   Of course, if you pick up on the text of the Offertory, you could always play Guilmant's March on Handel's "Lift Up Your Heads" (grin).   Unfortunately I don't think there's a Tournemire Suite in L'Orgue Mystique for the Vigil of Christmas, but I may be wrong. I think, though, that since the Vigil in Tournemire's time was celebrated with purple vestments and without Gloria in excelsis, the prohibition of playing the organ during Advent (except on the 3rd Sunday) still applied.   You might look and see if there are any organ compositions on the "Great O" Antiphons, which are sung at Vespers immediately preceding Christmas, beginning on Dec. 17th. The complete set is in the Liber Usualis at page 340ff. "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel" is a paraphrase of them (with the order scrambled) ... a postlude on that would also be appropriate.   The Office Hymn for the Vigil of Christmas is "Veni Redemptor Gentium" ... Nun komm der Heiden Heiland ("Saviour of the Nations, Come") is a paraphrase of THAT, so preludes on Nun komm would also be appropriate.   Cheers,   Bud   "COLASACCO, ROBERT" wrote:   > Can anyone recommend a Postlude for Chritmas Vigil service. > > "Pipe Up and Be Heard!" > PipeChat: A discussion List for pipe/digital organs & related topics > HOMEPAGE : http://www.pipechat.org > List: mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org > Administration: mailto:admin@pipechat.org > Subscribe/Unsubscribe: mailto:requests@pipechat.org
