According to current thinking, the festal nature of Palm Sunday should come to a screeching halt after the singing of "All Glory, Laud and Honour" at the entrance procession, and/or "Ingrediente Domino". We alway sing a motet of the Passion for the Offertory anthem on that day.   Cheers,   Bud   Cheryl Van Ornam wrote: > > Hi all, > > This year, we are doing "God so Loved the World" (Stainer) for Palm = Sunday. > It's to be the offertory just after the sermon, which this year is on > Christ's death and resurrection. > > One of the choir members asked me about it -- he thinks Palm Sunday = should > be a continual high day.

(back) Subject: RE: Organs With Two Pedal Boards SPEC From: "Andr=E9s G=FCnther" <agun@telcel.net.ve> Date: Fri, 7 Mar 2003 14:47:16 -0400   Andres Gunther agun@telcel.net.ve   Dear Jon and List!   Here is the stop list of the Stuttgarter Stiftskirche Organ's Double = Pedal. The whole organ was a 4 manual/84 stops instrument. The spec is good considering the time when it was built (my opinion)-   Aristide Cavaille-Coll visited it when it was under construction. ACC's opinion about Walcker was good- he respected him as an intelligent, skilled builder. He only regretted that the instruments had not proper = wind supply, sounded "cold", no harmonic flutes were used, and he didn't like german reeds.   Here the pedal stoplist   Lower pedal (15 stops):   Majorbass 32' Principalbass 16' Oktavbass 16' Violon 16' Quint 10-2/3' Oktavbass 8' Gedecktbass 8' Violoncello 8' Quint 5-1/3' Oktavbass 4' Posaune 32' Posaune 16' Trompete 8' Clarino 4' Clarino 2'   Upper pedal (7 stops):   Bourdon 16' Bassflote 8' Violoncello 8' Flote 4' Hohlflote 2' Srerpent 16' Bassethorn 8'   The organ lists 10 (non specified) couplers. If they were II-I, III-I, = IV-I, / III-II, IV-II, / IV-III, / I-P, II-P, III-P, IV-P then the two pedal boards couldn't be coupled together.   My opinion: Pedal I seems to be a "Forte" or "Main Pedal" section, Pedal II a "Piano" pedal section. Advantage: Quick changes between "Forte Pedal" and "Piano Pedal" were possible without great stop changes or settings. Great for polyphonic pedal playing :)   My organ instructor's opinion when he saw the console pic: "Take out your third leg and enjoy!" :)   It's to regret that this unique instrument got lost in July 1944.   Cheers Andres =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D Source Notes: Organ spec: Gotthilf Kleemann, "Orgelbauer in Wurttemberg vom Ende des 18. bis zur Mitte des 19. Jhts" - Organ builders in Wurttemberg from end 18th = to mid 19th cty - Acta Organologica Nr 12 pg.190-191 (Merseburger Varlag = Berlin 1978)   Cavaille-Coll's opinion: Hans Steinhaus, "Deutsche Orgeln im Urteil von Aristide Cavaille-Coll" - german organs in the opinion of A.C-C.- Acta Organologica Nr 14 pg. 215 (Merseburger Verlag Berlin 1980) =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D First was the cat, then was the Orgler.

It actually makes quite good sense, as combination actions then were almost non existant. I wonder what Cavaille-Coll thought about the instrument? Did he leave any "letters" or notes concerning?   Jon B.

However, please don't tease him - we are very different. He is much more knowledgeable of his subject matter and a serious writer - it's part of his livelihood.   I on the other hand am seldom serious, and most of the writing for which I am paid is rather hum-drum: "In the such-and-such court of such-and-such, in the interest of so-and-so; Comes now the undersigned, pursuant to whatever statute applies, and prays this Honorable Court to enter an order . . . . " These organ recital reviews are done purely for pleasure, with no agenda and no one to flatter but myself if you like them.   Cheers and thank you,   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com     -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org] On Behalf Of Alan Freed Sent: Thursday, March 06, 2003 8:59 PM To: PipeChat Subject: Re: Jacksonville Beach with Felix, Part 2   Glenda, I'm a Malcolm partisan.
