Conrnopeans have more than their share of bad ones.   A good Cornopean is above all a good blender, of tone intermediate between = a trumpet and a tuba, and of moderate (mf - f) volume. It is often the only reed on a small organ (much to be preferred to an Oboe in my view) useful = in combination or as a solo stop. Always enclosed (on the swell organ), it = can be a soft expressive solo reed, and a solo or fanfare 'trumpet' - though = not a very loud one (you can't have everything). But loud enough to contribute to full organ. A true 'multi-purpose' reed stop.   I'm surprised at the reference to 'lack of body' - by defintion a = Cornopean should have more body than a Trumpet. Was this horror made by anyone we've ever heard of ?   Bruce Miles.     mail to:- bruce@gbmuk.fsnet.co.uk website:- http://www.gbmuk.fsnet.co.uk     ----- Original Message ----- From: "jon bertschinger" <jonberts@magiccablepc.com> To: "pipechat" <pipechat@pipechat.org> Sent: Sunday, August 18, 2002 1:28 AM Subject: Cornopeans...<sigh>     > My question to the list would be: why bother with one?

It also was made available on the Great. Being outside the swell enclosure =   the softer harmonics, previously absorbed, are heard and the result is = very favorable. Steve Bartley

I seem to remember the one with 'Freddie Star' (and to the uninitiated, Freddie - an acquired taste - can be utterly anarchic - a true clown) featured the Jordanaires .... and they were absolutely fantastic. But then, shouldn't their choice of name have given us all some little clue - albeit, 50 yrs ago ?   And anyway, including 'hidden' melodies (often in the pedal) is something EVERYONE must have done, at some time ..... wasn't it Dudley Moore (of Saintly memory) who played 'Smoke gets in your eyes' when annoyed by a guttering candle ?   "Rock On, Baby"   Harry (musicman)   -----Original Message----- From: Ron Yost <musik@tcsn.net> To: PipeChat <pipechat@pipechat.org> Date: 17 August 2002 01:24 Subject: Re: In memoriam > >His backup-singers, "The Jordanaires", were gospel >singers, too. >

I've always like this, but listening to a recording on the way to court the other morning, it suddenly hit me in a way it never has before. I kept replaying it and thinking what a great selection for a long wedding train, or shortened for a smaller one - majestic and with great feeling. I even thought the fugue might be nice for a long communion at a wedding, with "O God our help in ages past" as one of the hymns during the service. Oh God, guess the medication is wearing off. Just wondering if I'm way out there, or if anyone has done this. Of course, if you have organists and/or non-music lovers in the crowd, Steve's occasion calls for something shorter and perhaps a little more obscure. Would have to think on that one for a while.

I just feel that if you are going to the expense of having a reed, it should be something more "exciting" to the ear...even if a quiet one. Besides, you should already have enough fundimental tone in the organ from Principals and Flutes. I still would rather have a Trompete.....I'd take a good Cromorne too! <G>   Jon Bertschinger

Quite a difference in shallot opening shape. Most "american" reeds of any type are too forced for my liking. The greatest reason is that the tip of the resonator is really too small an opening to support the fundimental tone that the reed is making. It just becomes a "forced squawk" then.   Jon

But that would be a very good work indeed as a wedding piece.     When substituting in my younger years, I was told by a Baptist "Preacher" I could play any "good church music" I wanted, but not Bach...."we only want real church music here".   Time to get ready and perform on the loverly Sludgemaster Deluxe.... have a great morning all!     jon bertschinger

With that date, it might even have a Skinner touch to it. I've forgotten the exact dates, but ol' Ernest was with Hutchings in that general time.   Dennis Steckley   Ich liebe meine Katzen        
(back) Subject: Re: Prices for practice pipe organs From: "Antoni Scott" <ascott@ptd.net> Date: Sun, 18 Aug 2002 11:04:56 -0400   All:   Glenda's point is well taken. I had a similar experience with a different organ builder many years ago. We were unable to come to an agreement on what I was going to get and what I was going to pay. His "blank check" approach is not the way I like to do business.   I ended up by "building" my own pipe organ, which amounted to reinstalling two discarded turn of the century organs into my home, picking the best of both and "revoicing" them to suit my needs but with mixed results. For sure it was a real pipe organ (15 ranks) but not the way I really wanted it. Cost was a penny on the dollar compared to the real thing built from scratch. The advantages were that I was listening to pure organ sound from some 900 plus pipes but the disadvantages were the "dead" acoustics of my "rec" room. Maintenance was low, hardly ever had to tune it. Occasionally a moth would get sucked in from the blower room and end up stuck in one of the reeds, but other than that it was very reliable.   At present, I am more realistic but still have the same concerns. My new dwelling has more available space for a pipe organ but I am less willing to fill it up with pipes. Digital organs have plusses but many more minuses, and the custom organ I want built is not possible. Ten or 15 ranks of really good digital stops would probably be suffficient for my needs but the cost is astronomical. Right now, I still have nothing, not satisfied with any digital organ and can't afford a "real" pipe organ. At present, I have this digital contraption consisting of two ASR 10's with a WURSI interfaced 32 note radiating concave AGO pedalboard. It is extremenly limited, but the individual stops are extremely authentic and serves as an ideal "practice" instrument until the right thing finally comes along. I have invested about $4000 to $5000 for the entire set up and am completely satisfied. The next step would be in the $30,000 on up price range which I cannot justify considering the electronic sound quality of all the digital organs available today.   Antoni
