From: "Andrew Mead" <mead@eagle.ca> Date: Sat, 6 Sep 2003 15:40:02 -0400   The company I worked for for about 12 years would "dead lengthen" reeds whenever they could get a customer to sign the contract to do so. I became adept at repairing the slots and soldering them closed. Others would then cut them to true length. I can't say I ever noticed any improvement but = the argument given was that the pipes would become more stable tuning wise.   Most dead-lengthening was done on trumpet scaled reeds. A few times we dead-lengthened oboes. The results were disastrous. One Oboe subjected to this treatment WILL NOT stay in tune and is NEVER used. I'm being = empirical but it's the gospel truth. The crazy thing is the church paid the company $8,100 CAD to essentially ruin their oboe and they're too embarrassed to complain. This occurred in 1996. This is not a repeat of a rumour. I've = seen the contract and the invoices! If you want to make lots of easy money, getting into pipe organs CAN be a good way to make it. Sheesh! AjM

Most of the historic organ cases have the Spanish Horizontal Trumpet array in the center of the structure...often just above the organist head.

(back) Subject: Re:radiating horizontal reeds From: <TubaMagna@aol.com> Date: Sat, 6 Sep 2003 17:53:41 EDT   Radiating horizontal trumpets might possibly be more characteristic of =   18th century Portugese organs than Spanish ones. Chamades were frequently = added to existing cases in Spain, and Portugal appears to have preferred greater =   architectural exuberance and ornament. You may be thinking of the mid-18th century organ at Villafranca del Bierzo, which has horizontal Trompetas radiating from the circular bases = of the three towers, with quadruple-funnel shaped Regalias radiating in a row = beneath the Trompetas. A slightly earlier instrument (1745-7) in the Cathedral in Granada sports horizontal reeds (both trumpet and regal types) radiating = from the semicircular tower bases. Among the striking Portugese organ cases of the period with radiating horizontal reeds are: . The organs in the cathedrals of Braga, Evora, and Oporto . The University Chapel and New Cathedral in Coimbra . Sao Bento da Vitoria and the Carmelite Church in Oporto . Convent of Santa Maria in Arouca, the Church of Sao Domingos and the =   Convent of Santa Marinha da Costa in Guimaraes . The Monastery Church of S. Joaoa de Tarouca . The Church of Santa Clara in Vila do Conde . The Church of Martires and the Church of Santa Engracia in Lisbon . The Monastery of Saint Martin in Tibaes . The Convent of San Salvador in Grijo . Senhora da Abadia, Amares . The Church of Santa Maria in Obidos . The Third Order of Saint Francis, Obidos (flared resonators) My first trip to Spain at the age of nine awoke me to the visual drama = of the Iberian organ case, and especially the horizontal reeds.

Both are Dr. Butz publications, and if you're looking for interesting out-of-the-way 19th-century organ music, their website is certainly worth a visit. Maybe = if you tell them I sent you, they'll give me a discount on my next purchase, fat chance. I've bought so much from them that I don't think there's anything I need except for everything they may publish from this day forward.   Verlag Nr. 1529 from December 1997 contains 8 works by Friedrich Smetana = and 8 by Antonin Dvorak. Smetana--6 preludes, Fugue in A, and a chorale = prelude on "Gott sei uns gnaedig und barmherzig; Dvorak--5 preludes and 3 fugues. = I see that I've also played Dvorak's Fugue in G Minor from this book, certainly a worthwhile piece.   Verlag Nr. 1327 from May 1993 contains 3 Preludes and Fugues by Josef Rheinberger with the catalog numbers of JWV 16, 10, and 13. I played JWV = 10 a while back--the prelude is in d minor, the fugue in D Major. The date of composition for this is February 18, 1854, so he probably was 14 or = possibly 15 when he wrote it (I don't have his exact birthdate handy). One can see and hear the mature composer already in this work, and if that isn't maddening enough, the fugue is a DOUBLE fugue, thank you very much!   Butz also publishes the John West Sonata in d, which I think I mentioned = on this list a couple of months ago or thereabouts.   Bob Lind
