(back) Subject: 18th cty barrel organ 02 From: "Andr=E9s G=FCnther" <agun@telcel.net.ve> Date: Wed, 12 Nov 2003 11:13:31 -0400   Andres Gunther agun@telcel.net.ve   18th cty barrel organ part 02 (History, first part: the Legend)   Almost nobody in Venezuela had an idea about the existence of an 18th cty barrel organ because it was hidden in a "grandfather clock" and rediscove= red when the clock was subjected to a restoration by Master Watchmaker Enriqu= e Cupello in the early 1990s. Description and history of the clock is contained in the inventory files = of the President's House "La Casona" in Caracas:   "It is a majestic clock with a Louis XVI style french cabinet made from carved wood which is gilded and polichromated, and measures 3,20 mts [10-= 1/2 feet] in height. The clock movement, of English origin, is moved by weights. In the upper part it has, as an exceptional feature, a bellows organ whith pipes and roller. The clock, which dates from Louis XVI's time, was brought to Caracas in 1= 942 from Ciudad Bol=EDvar, where it had remained for more than a century. In Caracas it conformed part of the Eduardo P=E1ez Pumar Collection. It was accompanied by the following legend: "It was in the Tuller=EDes; Napoleon donated it to his brother Jerome Bonaparte. It was acquired in Holland by= a member of the Siegert family [...] Te=F3filo Benjam=EDn Siegert, Field Su= rgeon of the Liberation Army in Angostura, today Ciudad Bolivar". For this the clock is nicknamed "Reloj Napole=F3n"- Napoleon clock.   Of course this unique piece and its alledged history caused sensation and excitement among us restorers. The style of the clock and the barrel orga= n denotes mid to late 18th cty without doubt. Certain technical details of = the barrel organ denote a possible french origin. A device like this clock only was available to wealthy people in that time, and we know that Louis XVI was a passionate clockmaker and collector. So far, so good... but the= re is not a single document to support the veracity of the legend about its origin and early history, and we decided to consult with european experts.   The "Prescott Watchmaking Museum" told Mr Cupello that the clock movement shows english and french elements, so it could be true that the clock was made in France- it's even possible that it was build in the Tuillerie= s by a british watchmaker and the King himself.   However Michel Foussard, Technical Counselor for the Instruments Patrimon= y of the french Culture Department wrote on March 09 2000: "(...) Our work would be considerably easier if we knew of marks, labels, and inscriptions that may be found on the cabinet, the chasis, boards, or movements. A mayor difficulty is: *The cabinet certainly is not French*. The used material: Massive wood and no marquetry, carved ornaments (how seems me b= y the photograph) instead of massive bronce cast, and the baroque style, et= c. rather evoke a German or maybe dutch manufacture. To date it about 1765 seems to be correct. It seems difficult for us to think that the clock belonged to the Tuileri= es inventory however. One hypothesis we permit ourselves is: the clock could have arrived in France with Marie Antoniette of Austria (altough the styl= e seems not to be Austrian). We can suppose that the cylinder [roller] is French and replaced a more ancient cylinder... Apparently, the history of the clock is not based on documents but on a family [oral] tradition [legend]. I suppose that its first attested apparition was in Holland. So G=E9r=F4me was king of Westphalia and his brother Louis was k= ing of Holland... One can imagine that the clock was sold with a lot of merchand= ise of which some items came from the Tuileries, and that this fact benefitte= d the buyer to claim its origin" (...).   You can figure out our disappointment. Concerning 'marks, labels, or inscriptions', they were lost in history since somebody had sanded and painted with black enamel the whole inwards of the clock in a former restoration. This way we only can guess on our own. In the best case the alleged history is right- but it never could be confirmed to 100% because the clock had a rather adventurous life and was subjected to several repairs and 'restorations' in these two centuries. I= n the worst case the clock had been assembled with various junk parts by a clever antique dealer who provided it with the history of the Tuileries t= o sell it with a good profit.   (will be ctd.)

For a lot of people this is not a problem, for some it is.   The Romantic module has samples in it of large scale, fairly high wind pressure, sort of English (early 20th century), sounds. The Classic = module is more like the typical Ahlborn organ, the 201 is baroque sounding, the 202 is an odd mixture of stops, with fairly large scale sounding samples. The sounds overall on each module is quite different.   Regards,   Arie V.   ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Arie Vandenberg Classic Organbuilders ArieV@ClassicOrgan.com Tel.: 905-475-1263

What that church has done exists all over the United States in the name of making Church ________________, supply your own word; popular, relevant, user friendly, etc. One of the insults is the assumption that no one can read music, so who needs hymnals. Along the same line, we now have Worship Centers rather than churches. Entertainment is the style. The design of the Worship Center is like a theater with an elaborate stage, lights, etc. The sound system may cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. The "music" will come from highly amplified electric guitars, bass, keyboard and trap set. The singers will be swallowing mics in imitation of the latest teen idols.   Its all very theatrical. Organs? They went down with Noah's Ark. The crowds are large, as are the collections. Happily, this is not universal in the US and there are some signs of decline. I hope it is not just starting in Spain. I will watch for it when I am there in March.   Del W. Case Pacific Union College

Matter of fact, I'd kind of like to believe in reincarnation and in this instance at least it would provide a plausible explanation for the young man's prodigious ability as well as his amazing gold shoes.   Although I consider some of what he does to be of questionable taste I was dazzled by his technical prowess and captivated by his presence with the audience. The excitement his performance generated on the part of the listeners--mostly the same 50 and 60-something crowd usually seen at local organ recitals plus members of the aging, conservative midwestern Catholic parish whose church he performed in--was palpable. If our profession had a few more like him perhaps audiences would gradually stop avoiding our preformances in droves, and some appreciation might eventually be = generated for the rather more staid, understated type of things that are more to my taste.   Personally I think he might just be a godsend.
