The Double touch stops are very useful as it allows one to set = stops very quickly, particularly when programming pistons mid service. The tonal scheme of the organ, however, which surely is far more important, does not appear to have been mentioned. Comments please.   S Brown  
(back) Subject: Iconoclastic authority From: "John Foss" <harfo32@hotmail.com> Date: Sun, 29 Jun 2003 17:22:17 +0000   Dear List, Following on from the St Paul's Cathedral thread, some years ago (about 30 = I guess!) I took a group of sixth formers to one of the colleges in either Oxford or Cambridge. Now this was in the days before rampant commercialism =   and the godless society had taken over our establishment, and so I was appalled to find an admission charge to the college chapel. I think it was =   Magdalene College, Cambridge. If a Cambridge college can't afford to maintain its basic obligation to Christianity, i.e. a place of worship available for those who are in need, it is a sad state of affairs. Yes, charge for exhibitions, concerts and so on - but surely the minimal = amounts an entrance charge would bring in pale into insignificance compared to the =   college endowments and fee income? Anyway, there were some postcards on = sale which included one of a splendid gargoyle with a look of total disgust on his face, so I bought it and sent it to the Dean of the College with my views on the matter. It certainly stirred him up a bit - whether they cut the admission charge or not, I don't know, but if this is a long term decision for St Paul's, then the more fuss that is made the better. We have had a busy month here on Mount Olympus - though I am still working =   hard at educating our local citizenry to appreciate the organ. I invited some friends to join me in a concert last Saturday to celebrate my = birthday, for which I took delivery of my Aahlborn Classical Archive - enlarging = the spec of the Viscount to 48 stops, including two 32's and a Festival = Trumpet reminiscent of Holy Trinity, Sloane Street. I now have a total of 10 Trumpet/Bombarde stops ranging in pitch from 32 to 4 foot, two sets of celestes, 25 ranks of mixtures, Oboe, Corno di Bassetto, 12 "flutes" from = 16 to 2', 10 Principals from 16 to 2', and Gemshorns and Gambas. There is a Nazard and a Terz - the only stop I lack is a larigot! The Aahlborn is voicable, so I can probably make the celeste sound like a Tuba if needed! This gives a wealth of choruses based on 16, 8, 4 or 2' and considerably enhances the range of music which can be played with near authenticity. It =   also makes a lot of noise. The house shakes with the 32's going full blast = - now my neighbours really have got grounds for complaint. I suppose I could =   turn the volume down. The concert went very well - we had Trumpet, Violin and Piano music as well as the Organ. We gave the first perfomance of two works for Trumpet and Organ by Vassili Mavrozidis as well as works by Corelli, Thoedorakis, Chopin, Beethoven, Michael Rose, Bach and Guilmant. Tassos played the Trumpet and Klaidi was at the piano. 8 year old = Cleopatra Loukianou, having made her debut with the Katerini Music School String Orchestra in Vivaldi's Concerto in A, the previous weekend, played a concerto in B flat by Corelli. We inaugurated our new open air theatre in the park in Katerini - fine acoustics for acting, built on classical Greek =   Lines and constructed of marble throughout. The sound is clear, but being = in the open air doesn't give any resonance to music. I was bass soloist on = this occasion with our local symphony orchestra in the Beethoven Fantasy in C = for piano, choir, orchestra and soloists. 14 year old Paris Tsenikoglou was = the piano soloist - classical music enthusiasm is encouraged at school here = and Paris is something of a prodigy. He was invited to give a solo Piano = Recital at Graz in Austria this year after going on the pianist's summer school there last year. Not bad for a fourteen year old. If you ever have an urge to express yourself on "off topic" subjects I = have started an Organists Off Topic group. This is not intended in any way to compete with any other organ group whatsoever. It is exclusively for off topic discussion. You may well feel that you are a member of enough groups =   already, and I have no wish to pinch any members from this or any other group, but if you are interested pay us a visit. You can read the reviews = of some of the other concerts we have had here this month (written for our local press) as well as discuss Weapons of Mass Destruction, Clerical suitability and so on! http://groups.yahoo.com/group/orgofftop/ John Foss www.johnfoss.gr   _________________________________________________________________ Add photos to your e-mail with MSN 8.

Huge place, and excellent facilities. If you know from German resorts on the Adriatic, you know that they do not cater to people wearing clothing. At this resort, clothing was totally optional everywhere except at the (mile-long, or so) beach, at the entrance of which there was a prominent sign: It showed two stick figures, a male and a female, wearing resort clothing, shorts on the guy; shorts and halter on the lady. And a big red "X" over the figures. Translation: "No clothing allowed beyond this point."   Then a few days later I was in Athens, and visited the Greek Orthodox cathedral (of course). Sign at the front door: Identical to the one at = the nudist beach. But (obvious) translation THIS time: "No shorts and = halters in the cathedral, please." Same message, different meaning.   Well, it struck ME funny.   Alan

(back) Subject: RE:Derby Cathedral and it's Compton From: "Colin Mitchell" <cmys13085@yahoo.co.uk> Date: Mon, 30 Jun 2003 01:13:01 +0100 (BST)   Hello,   I had to check in the NPOR (National pipe organ register) to look into the tonal scheme at Derby Cathedral, which is one of those cities where you seldom visit, but circumnavigate on the way to somewhere else.   I hope that I am not alone in actually admiring the organs of John Compton, but I would be the first to acknowledge that they are often a "smoke and mirrors" approach to organ design, using considerable extension throughout.   It just so happens that I live quite near the largest (almost) pure Compton organ. Now, before anyone quotes Hull City Hall as Compton's magnum opus ( on which I used to practise), this organ was already a very large instrument long before Compton touched it....so it don't count!   The 5-manual organ of Wakefield Cathedral is a very, very effective instrument in a fairly modest ex-parish church type of cathedral, of great beauty I would add.   Although the organ has been changed in recent years, the bulk, if not the whole, of the Compton ranks remain in situ. I would have to check the exact details, but I believe the Choir Organ is now seperate ranks, and the Swell Organ is an independently ranked division and always has been.   However, the Great, Pedal, Solo and Bombarde of this 90 speaking stop instrument, seem to be derived from a only 12 ranks of pipes, but Compton created a very fine organ sound nevertheless.   It is easy, since the "Baroque Revival", to dismiss these type of instruments as "pretend" organs, but Compton did it better than most, and far better than anyone else in the UK.   Beautifully made, with some very elegant bits of design and execution in the mechanisms, John Compton and his staff were not fools. Made to a more or less "factory" style, the voicing was excellent, and the reeds particularly fine.   From what I have heard of the organ at Derby Cathedral, it is typical of the genre in being a very effective accompaniment instrument, and an organ capable of a great deal in spite of the design shortcomings with extension.   I sincerely hope that the really good Compton organs such as Hull Parish Church, Hull City Hall, Derby, St.Bride's London, Wakefield and elsewhere, will not only survive, but continue to give excellent and MUSICAL service.   Finally, lest we forget, Compton was right there, at the very beginning of the theatre (cinema) organ, and the 5-manual organ in the Odeon Cinema, Leicester Square, London, continues to delight cinema-goers to this day in the capable hands of Donald Mackenzie.   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK   ShaunBrown123456@aol.com wrote: >   I would just like to defend Derby Cathedral for a > moment. >     ________________________________________________________________________ Want to chat instantly with your online friends?

(back) Subject: Today at church From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@direcway.com> Date: Sun, 29 Jun 2003 19:10:09 -0500   I just had to tell you about my faux pas this morning. I subbed at a Lutheran Church this morning - an 8:15 and 11:00 service. The early morning service (requiring me to be on the road at 6:00!) was the traditional one; the latter the contemporary program. Therefore, two sets of service music, but this Sunday at least the hymns were the same.   The first service went without a hitch. At the beginning of the second, after the announcements I launched into opening hymn, with the premonition that perhaps I had skipped something. The assistant minister ran over and whispered, "We do the confession of sin first." Highly embarrassed, I immediately ceased and desisted.   The priest standing at the baptismal font announced, "We WILL confess our sins AND mistakes to Almighty God this morning," at which hoots of laughter ensued.   After church, I apologized, telling him my mind went to Episcopal-land for a second there - we get the Episcopals loosened up and warm and fuzzy before getting them to confess anything!

I subbed = at Episcopal, ELCA Lutheran, Methodist, etc. I discovered that each congregation differs even when it is the same denomination. One Methodist church may use the old rhythm Doxology, another may use the straight = rhythm. One may use a Gloria Patri and then another the other tune. Some want the hymns at a fast clip; other more stately. It is not the music played as such, but when to come in and the little subtle elements of service = playing that only someone experienced at that particular church can know. Now I am regular organist at an ELCA church which is very liturgical; after almost two years and a wonderfully supportive music director and pastor, I am starting to get the hang of it.
