I used to play from the Dupre (grin!) and mark the solo and tutti parts because that was the most uncluttered urtext, if one ignored Dupre's pedal part and played it in the l.h. ... Walcha/Schott adds too many notes to the organ part, though that's what I use for the orchestra parts.   That said, I use a very simple scheme for all of them:   Quick movements:   Solo: 8 Flute, 2' Flute or 2' Principal Tutti: a different 8' flute, since the organ at that point is playing continuo   Slow movement(s):   a singing 8' flute alone; no change for tutti sections   That old LP of Biggs at Great Something-or-Other-Estate Chapel on the "Handel" organ uses a Cornet combination for some things, and that wouldn't be out of the style.   Now, if you're having a full-sized modern band, obviously that's not going to work (grin).   Cheers,   Bud   Stephen Barker wrote: > Dear List, > > I have a performance of Handel's F major Organ Concerto coming up (op. 4 > no. 4) and I wonder if anyone could offer advice on the sorts of > registration I should be using...

(back) Subject: Re: Wedding Story From: "Colin Mitchell" <cmys13085@yahoo.co.uk> Date: Tue, 20 May 2003 00:33:08 +0100 (BST)   Hello,   Well Cheryl asked for some funnies........     A BAPTISM STORY     It is vital to imagine the scene.....a wonderful medieval church, an immaculate 4-manual Harrison instrument and a dapper English gentleman who, as a child, once entertained Brahms at the piano.   The now long deceased organist of Halifax Parish Church, here in the UK, was an English gentleman's gentleman.....never a ruffled feather, an ill judged comment or the slightest hint of outrageous behaviour or personal excess.   He began to tell the story of the Pedal chest cypher, and we were agog.   "Well, I climbed up the internal ladders, using a candle to light the way. Past the reservoirs and concussions, squeezing between the 32ft Woods and the 16ft Violone and upwards towards the Tuba chest. Then I turned precariously and made my way towards the end of the walkway; peering at the offending note of the 8ft Pedal Flute."   (By now, we were like schoolboys reading about the first ascent of Everest!)   "I considered what to do, and finally decided to put paper under the pipe to silence it, but in order to do this, I was obliged to place down the lighted candle beside me".   (He was now our hero).   "I took paper and tore it like this......."   (Demonstration followed.....We were impressed by the gentile gesture).   "....then taking the same piece of high quality paper, I attempted to lift the 8ft Stopped Flute pipe from without its' socket".   (Gasps of admiration)   "But you see......this was the moment at which something went dreadfully wrong, as I lost my balance."   (We drew breath....had he suffered a terrible fall?)   "In losing my equilibrium, I knocked the lighted candle, which rolled aflame towards the abyss below".   (A group gasp!)   "The candle dropped off the board, and landed beside GGGG# of the 32ft, still alight; the flame growing by the moment and licking at the pneumatic action rail above"   (Mouths dropped open)   "Unable to egress quickly, and being quite unable to clamber through to where the candle threatened to set the whole organ on fire, I had to think quickly!"   (Mr Pollard could play Vierne).   "What did you do?" We all asked at once.   Before he had chance to reply, a mutual friend asked Mr Pollard if he would like a drink.   Mr Pollard gave a stern look, but one which had more than a glint of triumph in the eyes..........   "What did you do?" We asked again.   "I FELT THAT I WAS ABLE TO MAKE WATER!" He answered, with just the hint of a smile, and then turning to the man buying him a drink, replied, "MAKE MINE A SMALL ORANGE PLEASE!"   Thus, in this act of baptismal relief, both a fine 4-manual Harrison organ, and a fine organist, were saved from the funeral pyre!   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK   --- Cheryl Van Ornam <cvanornam@newtonpres.org> wrote: > Can we have some funnies during this busy season? >     __________________________________________________ Yahoo!

The only thing he had, which you do not, is the Tierce rank as part of a Sesquialtera.   Keep it small!   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK   --- Stephen Barker <steve@ststephenscanterbury.freeserve.co.uk> wrote: > Dear List, > > I have a performance of Handel's F major Organ > Concerto coming up (op. 4 > no. 4) and I wonder if anyone could offer advice on > the sorts of > registration I should be using...   __________________________________________________ Yahoo!

One of the most brilliant-sounding organs I have ever heard was the 1928 Austin in = All Saints' Episcopal Church, St. Clair, Pa. This was a two manual instrument in which every manual stop save one was at 8' pitch, the sole 4' stop = being a Flauto Traverso. Yet the ensemble was as brilliant as a neo-baroque instrument of the 1960's.   The sound of an instrument depends on (1) the scaling of the pipework (2) the wind pressure used (3) the voicing of the stops (4) the layout of the instrument (5) the position of the instrument in the church (6) the acoustics of the building. The stop specification may also have some bearing on the sound, but I would suggest that this is of lesser = importance than (1) through (6).   There is only one way to know which stops to use on a particular = instrument. That is to experiment and LISTEN carefully to the results.   John Speller      
(back) Subject: Re: Reedless Oboe in UK? From: "John L. Speller" <jlspeller@mindspring.com> Date: Mon, 19 May 2003 20:43:12 -0500   The Oboe Gamba was not really quite a labial Oboe, but more of an intense orchestral string that when added to the ensemble gave it the kind of = "edge" that might cause one to think there was a reed stop present. Various English and American builders used stops of this kind, sometimes under the name of String Gamba or Oboe D' Orchestra (not to be confused with Orchestral Oboe, which is something quite different!) Generally speaking they sounded rather uninspiring as solo stops, but quite good in the ensemble.   I am not dfamiliar with any such stops on Harrison & Harrison organs = (which is not to say they didn't make them), though about the same time Bevington did include a labial Cor Anglais on some of his instruments. I remember = one of these on the Bevington in Othery, Somerset.   John Speller

It is for sale, and I will be deciding its future shortly. If you are interested, let me know as I am considering offers now. As you may know, it is one of the few 4-manual theatre organs Kilgen built.   SOLO Tuba (16') Tibia (16') Violin (16') First Diapason Orchestral Oboe Trumpet   MAIN Bourdon (16') Second Diapason Geigen Diapason Gemshorn Viole d'Orchestre Voix Celeste Vox Humana English Horn (16') Clarinet Post Horn   There is a Deagan Vibraharp (the bars however are missing), and a 10 horsepower Spencer blower.   The following webpages have pictures of the console from its days at WFIL in the '30s.   http://members.fortunecity.com/broadcastpioneers/wfil/38organ.html http://members.fortunecity.com/broadcastpioneers/wfil/47organ.html   I also have some additional ranks from other organs - more classically voiced ranks. Estey: Spitz Principal, Gemshorn, Viol Cello, Viol d'Orchestre, Vox Celeste, Keraulophone, Rohr Flute, French Horn, Prestant, Octave; a Skinner Vox Humana, and another French Horn.   I would like to sell everything at once, and hopefully keep the Kilgen intact. I can e-mail more detailed information to those interested.   Thanks to those of you who showed concern for its future earlier, and I do hope I can find a good home for it.   Al Adair
