(back) Subject: Re: 16' Manual stop choices From: "Jarle Fagerheim" <jarle_fagerheim@yahoo.co.uk> Date: Sat, 28 Aug 2004 12:13:22 +0200   The organ in R=F8nvik church, Bod=F8, Northern Norway, has a very fine 16' =   Principal on the Great (full disposition and picture at http://www.biof.no/?a_id=3D23). That makes it for a migthy sound, full of gravity and power. But in the Pedal, there's only a Subbass and a rather powerful Basun (Posaune) at 16' pitch, which when playing on full organ results in an "edgy" sound with the Basun overpowering the rest of the division.   I think that if the Pedal had borrowed a Prinsipalbass from the Great Principal, much of the problem would have been solved. If not, I'd prefer to have the stopped 16' on the Great and the open 16' in the Pedal. But of course all of this depends a lot on voicing and scaling.   - Jarle

Why have it when a sub coupler will do pretty much the same thing? As wonderful as the instrument I play is, my pet peeve is not having a 16' extension of the Swell Trompette. The 16-8-4 sound is awesome=97unless you stray below tenor C where the bottom drops out, in which case I cheat whenever possible (which isn't always) by coupling to the Pedal and using the Posaune on the notes I need.   On the plus side, we do have a 16' Bourdon on the Great which is perfectly scaled and very useful. It is also available on the Pedal as the soft 16'. You ought to hear in in the top register=97it just sings!   jim St. Paul's, DeKalb   O):^)     _______________________________ Do you Yahoo!?

(back) Subject: Re: New Orleans From: "Liquescent" <quilisma@cox.net> Date: Sat, 28 Aug 2004 10:18:48 -0700   Holtkamp was the builder of the new organ in St. Louis Cathedral Basilica, retaining a few ranks from previous organs. It was mostly a gift of Elise Cambon, long-time cathedral organist, and a student of Arthur Poister, which probably accounts for the Holtkamp connection. Ms. Cambon gave in excess of $600K; the cathedral raised the rest.   Cheers,   Bud

My general philosophy: one TC stop in an organ is ok. But I'd = rather fill in the bass of that TC stop than add another TC stop, if I have to = make that choice. I even feel this way about celestes, believe it or not. The =   few times I've had the luxury of full-compass celestes, I found them extremely useful, especially having the ability to couple it to the pedal.   All that being said though, I've played some really fun, old organs with quite a few TC stops, especially mutations. It does drive me nuts but = when I think of the sacrifices that would have to be made to fill the basses of =   all the stops for the same price (obviously some stops would have to be omitted unless cost and space is no object) it makes me stop and think   So... I dunno!   Andy   On Sat, 28 Aug 2004 16:40:53 -0500, Andy Lawrence wrote > Of course, your TC 16' Trompette _is_ a coupler. It seems wise to > provide it even if the pipe extension is not there.
