What a treat!! How beautiful!

I have several elderly vinyls of it. Cambridge Records (from the USA) sent me a double-disc of Melville Smith playing it, way back in 1962. Those two were fabulous records and I darn nearly wore them out. The playing was as good as the engineering, so the organ sounds very fine on them. With that, I learned how to play and love classic French music, and have always "heard in my head" those discs when playing the music ever since.   Incidentally, I believe a part, even if only a small part, of the warmth = of that organ is due to it being about a tone flat. On the other hand, the voicing, scaling and surrounding acoustics are the main factors.   Someone once told me that organ has no right to have pedal 16fts, it being = a classic French instrument. My answer is - that is a fabulous organ and the 16fts dramatically enhance the range and scope of music played there, so they MUST be retained.   Does anyone else remember those old Melville Smith recordings? I believe they're better than the Rogg one made later.   Ross

On the other hand, the > voicing, scaling and surrounding acoustics are the main factors.   I've always wondered how much of the mellowness and richness in an organ like that comes from its age.   If the effects of age are significant, then what happens, eventually, to a new organ built today and voiced to imitate an organ that is already 300 years old?   My own preference in a new organ in German-baroque style is for a = sprightly, vigorous sound rather than one that is perfectly smooth or tame (although = I realize that Schnitger has usually been the model thus far, and if one emulates Andreas Silbermann the ideal would naturally be different). In = this respect, my recordings of Flentrop and Marcussen organs outshine those of Metzler, Beckerath, or Frobenius. But recordings can deceive, and certain comments I've heard from the first-hand experience of others make me wary = of over-generalizing.   As to new European-built organs that I've actually played (and I also = heard them in the room while some else was playing), I have been especially impressed by two Hradetzkys, both small, but they were brimming over with this kind of character. I'd certainly propose that name for a list of favorites.

A minority view, whatever the era.   People have reported great disappointment with the Flentrop in Holy Name Cathedral, Chicago, but in no way can the builder be blamed.
