It was truly a fun day.   At first glance the images on the walls appear to be paintings. Upon closer inspection, one realizes that these are not paintings but finely made tile mosaics.

(back) Subject: Update and New Venture with Bass From: "Paul Soulek" <soulek@frontiernet.net> Date: Sun, 21 Apr 2002 19:51:11 -0500   For my summer project, I am considering some different things to do. I don't really want to work my convenience store job again, so I'm looking for something organ-related that I could possibly learn. Does anyone have any ideas?   Another update on the organ at church: today I added one more regular brick to the reservoir, weighing a few pounds. Now there is just enough weight on the reservoir so that the pressure measured in the chest stays constant, even while playing large chords. The notes that would kind of whistle all the time have stopped whistling, probably due to an increased pressure pushing the magnets tighter against the toe holes. There is NO noticable wind sag at all. The tuning can finally be right on! I did this after church today; too bad I wouldn't have thought of this last week. Anyway, it works great now.   Now that the principal is in and working good, I was thinking about adding a wooden flute rank. Wooden flutes have always had a special place in my heart. The thing is, the Rodgers can only accept an 8' rank of 85 notes---but I kind of wanted to add a 16' Bourdon, and have 97 notes on a unit flute rank. I have been thinking about some kind of switching system that would interrupt the signals that are coming off the driver board----both the positive common signal and the negative pipe on/off power signals---so that I can have a 16' flute stop---but I haven't perfected the system yet. This would have to be a switch that is separate from the stops on the organ---a toggle switch or something that would switch the 8' to 16'. I thought about using the rank for a 32' resultant as well, but right now just switching it to 16' sounds like a headache enough. The 8' flute would have to be the "gateway" to the 16' stop; because for the switch to do any good, the key signals must be coming into the pipes through the 8' flute pipe driver board. The 8' flute is playable on the pedal, great, and swell. Does anyone have any good ideas on this one? I've been thinking about this for a few hours, and it's got me stumped, as I'm sure I have you right now. I usually have quite the way with words, e-mail does something strange to me. What can I say.   Of course, the easy option would be to just hook up a 85 note 16' flute, and just change all the 8' flute tabs to 16' and the 4's to 8's etc...but then the stoprail would look like this (on the great) 8 Principal 16 Bourdon 8 Gemshorn 4 Octave 8 Flute 2 Super Octave 4 Wald Flote   .......which is not really desirable LOL. Oh, and the stoptabs cannot be moved around on the console. They're part of a circuit board. But if the only option would be to double the pitch lengths that are visible on the tabs..........   I hope you can make *some* sense out of the above. If not, let me know; I'll try to re-explain it.   Thank you! Paul

It was my understanding at the time that the studio was no longer used as an active on-air broadcast studio, as they have built newer more modern broadcast facilities in another part of the building. The organ appears to be a 2 manual of about eight to ten ranks with a straight stop tab bolster. I didn't really have a chance to get a good look at the console. Although the organ is not used regularly they appear to be committed to keeping it in playing condition.   jch

(back) Subject: Re: Update and New Venture with Bass From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Mon, 22 Apr 2002 00:16:38 EDT   Dear Paul Soulek:   You are indeed a treasure. My best advise to someone as enthralled as you are with pipe organs, is to take plenty of math and go for engineering courses in college, and go to work for an organ builder. It would be indeed a shame not to persue it.   Would a suboctave coupler do what you want to do on the manuals. The 16' stop would be TC up but this may be enough gravity there. Limit the coupler to just the rank you wish to address, the 8' Flute.   Ron Severin

(back) Subject: CD Review (X-post) From: "Jonathan Orwig" <giwro@earthlink.net> Date: Mon, 22 Apr 2002 00:05:19 -0700   Hello fellow organophiles   I am WAY behind on my reviews of the CDs I've purchased recently, so I thought I'd try to crank one or two out a week for awhile to try and catch up.   My first "find" I ordered from the Berkshire Record Outlet http://www.broinc.com Joseph-Ermend BONNAL (1880-1944) L'oeuvre pour Orgue - Jea-Pierre LECAUDEY aux grandes orgues de la Kathedrale Basilek St. Bavo `a HAARLEM. Pavane Records ADW 7357   This was my first exposure to more works of Bonnal, having only heard the Paysages Euskariens prior to receiving this disc. In addition to these 3 movements, the CD also contains:   Noel Landais Paysage Landais Petite Rhapsodie Reflets Solaires Symphonie pour grand orgue d'apres "Media Vita"   I won't make an exhaustive analysis of the music, as the idea of these reviews is to stimulate your interest..... I was impressed by the performer, the organ, but more importantly the = MUSIC. If you've not explored the music of Bonnal, and you like the French late-romantic/impressionist/20thC style of writing, you will love this music. It is well-crafted and has some rather unique twists of form and harmony. The shorter pieces were nice little tidbits, but the = tour-de-force is the Symphonie, and the Reflets Solaires. The Symphonie is subtitled "R=E9pons du temps de la Septuag=E9sime", and makes use of gregorian = themes. I believe it is a worthy successor to the last 2 symphonies of Widor...! = The Reflets ("Solar Reflections") is a sparkling Toccata. The Cavaille-Coll inspired Adema organ handles the sonic demands of this music with = aplomb... I could almost be convinced this is a French organ... Lecaudey plays with verve and virtuosity.   Want something different? Give it a try.
