She unexpectedly became Queen in 1935, and ceased to be Queen when her husband King George VI died in 1953. In the nearly 50 years since then = she has remained active and in the public eye as the 'Mother Figure' for the whole royal family.   The Ceremonial Funeral will be at Westminster Abbey on Tuesday 9th April = and will, I am sure, be a celebration of a long life well spent.

It will also be a great musical occasion with a feast of ceremonial organ and choral music and a congregation of millions worldwide The organ is a 4 manual 109 stop = Harrison and Harrison in the top flight of English cathedral organs.

John was preaching in her chapel (Chapel of All Saints) right across the lane from = her home, The Royal Lodge, a lovely building in pink.   I was one of about 20 people in the congregation.

(back) Subject: RE: Pipechat Compton and Wurlitzer From: <cmys13085@blueyonder.co.uk> Date: Fri, 5 Apr 2002 19:11:57 +0100   Hello Chatters,   As I (almost) confess to playing both "th----e organ" and the serious = ones, I can offer a bit of comparison here. Compton organs were = essentially "factory" instruments of a high mechanical order with = devilishly clever use of electric actions etc. The comparison between = Wurlitzer and Compton is often made (though I seem to recall that the = Compton Cinema Organ pre-dates (just) the Wurlitzer instruments). I also = think Wurlitzers are superior tonally and rather nicer to play....the = choice of timbres is particularly effective and the "Big Band" sounds = from a big Wurlitzer are really quite remarkable. To hear Jim Riggs play = "Slow boat to China" is to be transported right in front of the = Orchestra Pit with a live orchestra.   Compton built just the one type of organ essentially (with obvious = differences in the number of ranks etc) and, when playing a theatre = organ, if the tremulants are silenced, you are really playing a church = organ with added Tibias and a Toy Counter/Percussion section. Stick to = Diapasons, Flutes, Strings and Reeds and you are playing a church = organ.   The real genius of Compton was to be found in those experiments in tonal = synthesis. It goes far beyond mere Polyphonic devices or 32ft Harmonics = mixtures which synthesised 32ft reed tone. I have often been captivated = by the way it is possible to synthesise, for example, an almost perfect = Orchestral Oboe on a Compton Organ by drawing an 8ft String and a Nazard = 2.2/3   I have never had the pleasure of crawling around a Compton or checking = on pipe-scales etc. However, using my ears, I have always been = fascinated to listen to the way that "choruses" are built up using just = a few ranks. Typically, Diapason, Principal,Gemshorn, Salicional, = Dulciana. Compton strongly advised the avoidance of adjacent Octave = pitches.....8ft and 4ft stops taken from the same rank on the same = manual. The usual method seems to have been along these lines; assuming = a "metal" chorus of the following pitches:-   16, 8,8,4, 2.2/3, 2 and a couple of Mixtures.   Typically, the ranks would be derived as follows:-     16ft Contra Geigen Salicional rank 8 Diapason Diapason rank 8 Gemshorn Gemshorn rank 4 Octave Principal rank =20 2.2/3 Twelfth Salicional Rank 2 Super Octave Diapason Rank Mixture III 15th Gemshorn Rank 19th Salicional Rank 22nd Principal Rank Cimbel III 22th Gemshorn Rank 26th Dulciana Rank 29th Salicional Rank   This sort of avoidance of adjacent octaves overcame the obvious "octave = coupler" effect of missing notes, and in the best installation, it = worked very, very well indeed.   It's a long and complex story which also taps into the history of = electronic tonal synthesis and early electronic organs.....the company = were involved in all this.   St.Bride's, Fleet Street is very different from most Compton Organs, for = it was built around the same time as the Harrison organ of the Festival = Hall. Altogether brighter, somewhat more independent (It has over 5,000 = pipes) with "voices" which reflect a growing interest in Baroque organ = building; it is a wonderful instrument of great character......obviously = greatly enhanced by an almost perfect classical "double cube" acoustic = typical of a Wren Church.   Having played a few recitals at St.Bride's, I never "wanted" for = anything......with 145 or so stops, it has the lot in abundance.   A remarkable "synthesis" of romantic tradition and bright modernity, = those delightful Compton "trick" stops and a wealth of quieter reeds, = strings, mutations etc etc.........this is a very fine testimony to the = genius of its creator.   Of course, no organ would ever be built like this now, but as a period = piece and as a musical instrument, it doesn't have many faults. I = sincerely hope that it will always remain as it is...........   I guess I LIKE this organ!!   I suspect that Wurlitzer had the huge advantage that they were, long = before Hope-Jones got involved, pretty good "Band Organ" (Fair Organ) = makers......but they were never noted for their church organs!   Of course, with a pedigree which can be traced back to Violin making in = German Baroque days, it is QUITE possible that J S Bach may have played = a Wurlitzer himself......now there's thought!!!   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK     John Foss wrote:-     . What I put forward as an opinion on the Compton - Wurlitzer=20 theme was that Compton organs were typically British - well made - many = of=20 them are still around in working order - with good reeds and ingenious=20 action. However the Wurlitzer is in a class apart.
