I have already raved about the Schoenstein organ at Saint Paul's, K Street, Washington D.C. on the basis of hearing it. It's a = rather large instrument. Then, last summer I was able to try out the two-manuel Schoenstein at Grace Church, Sheboygan, Wis.

There were several other solo stops, including a = harmonic flute on the great. But I am less convinced of the ensemble.   This is certainly the most unusual, surprising, and intriguing two-manual that I have played in many years. Jack Bethard is not afraid to differ boldly in a romantic direction from the way most organs are built, even during the present romantic revival. He has also said that this organ was designed especially for the Anglican liturgy, which he has called the organ's highest calling and challenge because of the various roles it must play. Hence, unlike more ordinary, conformist organs, It probably = requires more than a half hour for even a true-blue Anglican to learn how to play. = I must reserve judgment without more experience and would like to hear it in service and recording by Dr. Benjamin Dobey, who was instrumental in the choice and has recorded on it.

The only two Klais organs with which I have any experience are St. Peter's Lutheran, New York City and Cologne Cathedral. = I liked both very much.   > Fisk and Rosales are vastly over-rated.   I agree with you about Fisk. BUT he, more than Brombaugh, is the father = of the tracker revival. He didn't have the same opportunities to learn from others in this country as today's younger builders have, several of whom learned from him (including Brombaugh, right?) After playing the then-new Fisk at Memorial Church, Harvard University, in the late 1960s, Anton Heiller pronounced, "At last America has a great organ builder!" He deserves great credit as a pioneer. He has often had to fight terrible acoustics as well, whereas those of S.

(back) Subject: Fisk and Brombaugh From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Thu, 20 Mar 2003 13:50:49 -0800   I had an opportunity to play one of the first (if not THE first) Brombaugh organs, in David Boe's Lutheran church in Lorain OH in the early 1960s ... it was ravishingly beautiful. So is Ashland Ave. Baptist in Toledo OH, another very early Brombaugh.   By contrast, the Fisk in whichever church it is on the Green in New Haven (Trinity Episcopal is the very mild GDH Skinner; of the other two, one is a Fisk and one is a German? tracker) I didn't find to have a very interesting sound, particularly the flutes. Granted, the 3rd manual hadn't been installed back then (I think it has been since), and perhaps the room had something to do with it, but I don't recall the room being particularly deadly.   Somebody really SHOULD do a "family tree" of American organ-builders ... I'm getting old enough I can't remember all the details (chuckle).   Rosales apprenticed with Holtzinger in LA (which I imagine he'd like to forget) (chuckle), and Schlicker, but that's all I remember about THAT branch.   Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I have the impression that Brombaugh has more "descendants" working in organ-building than Fisk. Perhaps somebody could update that information. I only know of one Fisk descendant, and I can't remember his name right now ... built a small organ for a university in the midwest?   I think Jack Bethards' approach to the Anglican organ is a mite complex; and, yes, it DOES have an odour of Hope-Jones about it (grin) ... I've been reading 19th century English stop-lists lately, and those organs are (1) relatively SMALL by American standards, even the cathedral organs, but they're (2) TERRIBLY efficient without a whole lot of gadgets, and only ONE enclosed division ... the point being that most of the 19th century choral repertoire that we know and love was written to be accompanied by THAT kind of organ ... tracker or pneumatic action to slider chests, moderate wind-pressure, etc. ... some of us raised in the E.M. Skinner / Aeolian-Skinner tradition of Episcopalian organs in this country tend to forget that.   Cheers,   Bud
