(back) Subject: American Great Division Balances From: <TubaMagna@aol.com> Date: Wed, 13 Nov 2002 09:47:20 EST   Overbearing Great choruses, with retiring secondary divisions, were common in American organs of the 1960s. This was exacerbated by the fact = that more often than not, builders placed the Great outside the organ chambers, =   stuffing everything else back inside. The idea seemed to be that the Great =   principal chorus "was for Bach and hymns," so balances became distorted. Omission of the Swell 8' Diapason marked a downward trend in = divisional balance, and has yet to recover completely in American organbuilding. In the 1940s and 1950s, there was a practice of building "Positiv" and =   "Brustwerk" divisions with a handfull (or less) of stops, omitting the = 8-foot! Divisional balance (for the listener) is usually best when all of the organ is in the same location, speaking to the same advantage. This is = part of the rationale behind the traditional freestanding, encased instrument, = in which divisions may speak from different locations, but all enjoy similar advantages of projection. Notice that in some instruments of the Schnitger era, the Pedal cases = are on the gallery rail WITH the Ruck Positiv - a feature increasingly used by =   contemporary American organbuilders as they begin to understand more and = more not just WHAT was done in historic instruments, but WHY.   Sebastian M.

However, the seaweed garnish for the champagne can present a choking hazard. The champagne/seaweed cocktail was banned in town after a local man perished. His panicky cries of "Kelp! Kelp!" were unheeded...   How about colorful reviews of organists?

Can anyone who currently uses and up-to-date mini disc recorder to record their organ practice/performance please recommend to me a model which is suitable. I am currently shopping for one. It would probably be best to email me privately so as not to clog up the list.     Thanks, Beau Surratt, Organist St. Peter's UCC, Elmhurst,IL Organ Performance Major, Northern Illinois University, DeKalb,IL
