There are mistakes in that, as there are in the =3D booklet on sale in the Cathedral itself. The organ was definitely rebuilt and pneumatic'd by Lawton & Osborne in = =3D 1945 (date on plate on console) and not in the 1930s. Too, they have ignored the Hobday rebuild of about 1908 when the 3rd =3D manual was added - it was most decidedly not a Lawton & Osborne =3D addition, but far earlier. And again: not every effort was made to keep everything, as the Deputy =3D Organist of the time (Richard Prothero) got the organbuilder to take the = =3D T.C.Lewis Mixture off the Great, throw away half of it, and turn the =3D rest into the Pedal Mixture, thus making the T.C.Lewis full Great chorus = =3D impossible ever again. And the organ is in a chamber on the left side of the quire as you face = =3D the altar, so it is on the NORTH wall, not the south where the console =3D is. The horizontal Trompette chest is indeed a shambles in appearance, as is = =3D the rest of the organ, as the organbuilder was forced to follow the =3D sketches of the architect of the time, a fellow who had less than 0.0% =3D understanding of music or organs and would not take advice. That is the = =3D reason, too, that the T.C.Lewis slider Great chest was dumped - the =3D architect wouldn't countenance having the Great pipes in the usual way =3D they appear on a slider chest.=3D20 And so on. By the way, the new Director of Music wants an organ rebuild and =3D reflecting and focussing panels to help get the sound out - casing would = =3D help, as at present the organ chamber is so big and echoey in itself =3D that it provides its own reverberation in addition to that in the =3D cathedral itself, which latter is undoubtedly too long at 8.5 seconds. =3D The fomer Director of Music, Philip Walsh, said that you cannot make =3D proper music in that length of reverberation, all you can do is create =3D fabulous atmosphere. He was partly right, but the statement really is an = =3D exaggeration as his choir and organ were incredibly fine - organplaying = =3D of unbelieveable precision and skill and musicality, and a choir better = =3D than that in Westminster Abbey. We thought we'd never, ever, see =3D Philip's like again, but the new fellow (about 2 years ago or a bit =3D less) is Andrew Cantrill and he's even better, so help me. (smile, =3D smile, smile, all with pleasure) Regards, Ross It always makes me very sad when cathedral authorities will continue =3D printing and pulishing stuff that is not accurate. I gave them the =3D correct details about ten years ago now, but nothing has been corrected. = =3D Other mistakes are in the official info as well.   ------=3D_NextPart_000_0065_01C1931D.82A57260 Content-Type: text/html; charset=3D"iso-8859-1" Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable   <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN"> <HTML><HEAD> <META http-equiv=3D3DContent-Type content=3D3D"text/html; =3D charset=3D3Dwindows-1252"> <META content=3D3D"MSHTML 5.50.4134.600" name=3D3DGENERATOR></HEAD> <BODY bgColor=3D3D#ffffff> <DIV><FONT size=3D3D2>Dear List,</FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT size=3D3D2>Don't believe everything you see about the organ on = =3D that=3D20 Wellington Cathedral site, sadly.

I received the message in plain English, not as an attachment. I forwarded a copy of the message to Dr. Moyer, and he told me that he would consult with a computer specialist and find out what the problem is.   I had the same problem when I sent some pictures to friends. Some received the pictures without having to open an attachment. Some others received them as an attachment which they could not open. I have no idea why.   Ross, you're not the only one who doesn't know a lot about computers. I got mine set up yesterday, and I think that I can turn it off correctly now. I know how to send and receive e-mail, and how to save and send pictures. Now you know everything I know about computers.   Good luck.   D.

I believe I have read that Harrison & Harrison have the T.C.Lewis archives , so to replicate the original mixture should be possible. With the original pipe work in the pedal mixture and with a voicer as skilled as Harrison's Peter Hopp it should be almost a breeze.   HD

Ross is a walking encyclopedia on the topic I can assure you.

With the repeated Ross Ward message text, and the 4 repeated Pipechat tags, I thought this thread could stand a bit of tidying.   I wish you a Very Happy and Prosperous New Year.

(back) Subject: Re: Cornopean From: "Bruce Miles" <bruce@gbmuk.fsnet.co.uk> Date: Tue, 1 Jan 2002 21:53:02 -0000   A good Cornopean is a true 'multi-purpose' reed - very often the only reed on a small organ. Always enclosed and on the swell, so that it serves as a soft solo reed (sometime with tremulant) and as a chorus stop which can = make a worthwhile contribution to full organ. Not usually quite bright or loud enough to use as fanfare stop, though with great diapason it will serve. Rather close toned, many older examples will benefit from some attention from a tuner/voicer.   I cannot agree with the 'tonal description seen in English text books' 'a brassy Trumpet'. I think Audsley was much nearer the mark 'the tone should be full and smooth, free from the brassy clang of the orchestral trumpet.'   Of course Cornopeans do vary. The one on the Market Weighton organ (1859) = is good one of the older variety and stays in tune from one year to the next. The one on the Binns at Sledmere House (1928) will do anything (except = stay in tune), has very prompt speech and makes a really good block chord = rhythm reed. This is a non church venue and the Cornopean comes in handy for = parts of one of my regulars, a selection of traditional Scottish songs - always much appreciated.

It is quite simple. I think Glenda did it this year, perhaps, = and she might concur. If you are interested, and cannot find this, I could perhaps do a scan for you, if you promise to buy the piece afterwards. The copyright is 1946, published by Boosey.
