From: "Ross & Lynda Wards" <TheShieling@xtra.co.nz> Date: Wed, 13 Nov 2002 16:54:51 +1300   Perhaps we might start a thread of descriptions of stops and organs that have taken our fancy. This last is a good one.   I'll add another. In English organ mags of 50 years ago they used to describe a large Open Diapason No.1 8ft as a "rich flood of gorgeous = unison tone." Someone once in the English press described a Salicional and its Celeste as sounding like "seaweed floating in a crystal bowl of = champagne."   Are there any other wonderful things like this in people's memory? Would = it be inviting too much trouble to suggest that some descriptions of stops = are rather like descriptions of wine - vaguely poetic but having no comprehensibility whatever?   Ross Actually it's 1543 stops derived from 3 ranks, "judiciously unified" = as they used to say in the organ mags.
