(back) Subject: Re: The Wolverhampton Compton From: <TubaMagna@aol.com> Date: Sun, 12 Dec 2004 16:12:00 EST   Will Light cites the Wolverhampton Civic Hall 1938 Compton IV/50. While = there is a 109-pipe 16' Salicional that plays at seven pitches, including the twelfth and nineteenth as quint mutations, the remainder of the mixtures = and mutations in the organ were designed and built as independent and = purely-tuned stops. The Nasard, Twelfth, Tierce, and all three mixtures are independent = and purely tuned. The Pedal does play the 16' Double Open Diapason from the Great in the =   Pedal at 10-2/3' and 5-1/3', helping the 6-2/5' purely-tuned rank of the = V-rank Harmonics achieve a full 32' effect in the room. I have heard from what I consider to be a reliable source that Compton =   knew of the advantages of the draw, and when planting his unit windchests, = made sure that the "G" pipes of the lesser rank were in proximity to the "C" = pipes of the more powerful, prime rank. That way, if the quints were wired off = the purely-tuned rank, the acoustical draw would be accentuated by the "fifth-shift" in the planting.   Sebastian M. Gluck New York City   ..

Reminiscent of a late-19th-century march, it's upbeat, = triumphant, and kinda difficult. There have been some very positive reviews of this publication. If you Google "Robert Lind Organ Images" I think you'll find them.   Bob Lind   ----- Original Message ----- From: wesley <wcool@bellsouth.net> To: 'PipeChat' <pipechat@pipechat.org> Sent: Sunday, December 12, 2004 2:13 PM Subject: battle hymn of the republic     > Anyone know of a good arrangement of this piece for organ? > thanks

It is a simple SATB =   setting, accompanied, and would be accessible to almost any choir. John Rutter also has a fine, simple setting of this carol.   Justin
