I can't spell "Gounod" correctly twice running (grin).   Now, to answer your question about the last chorus of the DUBOIS = ("Adoramus te, Christe").   I don't KNOW, but it strikes me as the kind of simple thing that a 19th = century French congregation MIGHT have sung ... say, between "O Salutaris" and = "Tantum ergo" at Benediction during Lent. The insertion of such invocations was common, = and persisted in RC choir-books and hymnals right up until Vatican II. And congregational singing at such devotions (as opposed to the MASS) was = quite common in France, as it was in Catholic churches in most countries.   In the present day, it appears as a congregational hymn with English text = in the evangelical protestant "Hymns For the Family of God" (!), so obviously = modern-day editors thought a congregation COULD sing it.   OTOH, Dubois might have simply wanted the "celestial" effect of the Grand = Orgue strings coming from a distance, though in those HUGE churches, I would = think it might have been more of a problem coordinating a chancel choir with the = west-end organ in the Dubois than it is in (say) the Langlais Messe Solenelle, = where (I THINK) the Grand Orgue only plays interludes when the chancel choir and = Orgue d' Choeur are silent.   Or maybe he had it sung from the west gallery by a quartet or second = choir.   BTW, for those who have never heard it in the original Latin with an = orchestra, it becomes almost a TOTALLY different piece ... the word accents fall where = they're SUPPOSED to, and a LOT of the color is in the orchestra. A performance in = English with just organ accompaniment doesn't BEGIN to do it justice, perhaps more = so than a lot of things.   Cheers,   Bud   Karl Moyer wrote:   > OOPS!!!! Yes!!

We might hope that some of the works published may become part of the standard repertoire.   Frog Music Press does not take the copyright form the composer, and does pay among the highest rates in the industry.   Thank you.     -- noel jones, aago ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It is owned by The Orange County group of Theatre Organ Enthusiasts. This is the famous *Studio Organ* people have talked about recently. It will require quite an infusion of money to put in top playing = condition, and the asking price $70,000 OBO. Within the next month a decission must be made. They would like to sell it as a whole instrument 34 ranks, four manual console, chests and pipe work. If you are interested contacts are Bob Truesdale 714-838-1842 or Don Near 714-539-8944. Don't E-mail me, I'm just interested in passing this information along to those who could develope a team to give it a proper home and refurbishment. One of the ranks is a real Brass Trumpet. So far this organ is still = intact, or reasonably so.   Regards,   Ron Severin

(back) Subject: That Wonderful Small Organ From: <TubaMagna@aol.com> Date: Mon, 14 Jan 2002 23:09:42 EST   Dear Pipe Chatters:   Here, to the best of my recollection, is the stoplist of that instrument = that I so thoroughly enjoyed. It was by Kilgen, undated, probably from the = 1920s, all in a single expression enclosure. The nomenclature varied; I have written the specification here so that the derivation of ranks is clear. = The 16' Bourdon CCC1-BBB12 keyed only in the pedal relay, and stopped at Tenor = C on the Great.   GREAT: 16' Bourdon (from C13) 8' Diapason (CC1-BB12 open wood) 8' Dulciana 8' Bourdon 4' Diapason 4' Bourdon 2' Diapason 8' Oboe Horn   SWELL   8' Salicional 8' Dulciana 8' Bourdon 4' Dulciana 4' Bourdon 2-2/3' Bourdon 2' Bourdon 8' Oboe Horn 8' Vox Humana Tremulant (affecting all stops)   16' Bourdon 8' Diapason 8' Dulciana 8' Bourdon   My initial reaction was as one might expect: I didn't like the mutation being drawn off the unit flute, I objected to no independent 4' Principal, = I thought the Pedal department was underdeveloped. Then I played it, was surprised at its beauty, and realized that it had served the same congregation for seventy years, and nobody seemed to object to any of it. Unfortunately, Kilgen actions are a real bear to releather, if one is = going to do it correctly.   SMG
