(back) Subject: Re: [PipeChat] Books on registration From: <quilisma@cox.net> Date: Fri, 20 Feb 2004 11:14:54 -0800   Somewhere in the PipeChat archives is a rather lengthy essay about French baroque registration by Yr. Humble Servant (grin), who happened to be studying with Fenner Douglass while he was writing The Language of the French Classical Organ ... I think there's also one about French romantic terrace dynamics, and the problems of translating Cavaille-Coll registrations to typical U.S. organs.   I'm as lost as a Jesuit in Holy Week in those archives (chuckle) ... maybe somebody with a modicum of computer skills can locate them.   Cheers,   Bud   Gfc234@aol.com wrote:   > In a message dated 2/20/2004 8:12:04 AM Central Standard Time, > jarmengaud@apsydev.com writes: > > Thanks for the answers, > > I do have the Allen video, but as far as registration is concerned, > I found > it rather basic...

(back) Subject: Re: acoustics From: <quilisma@cox.net> Date: Fri, 20 Feb 2004 14:39:02 -0800   The Oberlin College Choir once made a RECORDING in the three or four storey stairwell of Robertson Hall, the practice building ... ranged up and down the stairs.   My first church job in college was an RC parish in one of those gritty rust-belt steel towns along Lake Erie, outside of Cleveland. The very nice Victorian gothic church had been destroyed by a tornado at the beginning of the 20th century ... when they rebuilt, they build a SPECTACULARLY ugly stone shoebox with a flat roof ... BUT, the interior had walls of equally ugly green bathroom ceramic tile, a floor of that ugly black-and-white octagonal tile like you used to see in public restrooms, and a coffered tin ceiling.   The place seated a thousand, and the ONLY fabric in the place was the altar-cloths ... no seat cushions, no carpet ANYWHERE.   There was an undistinguished 4-rank Wicks unit organ from the 1920s in the choir loft (since replaced by a larger Wicks); the average age of the men's choir was probably 65-70; but when you got it all GOING in that ROOM it sounded like the angels and ARCHANGELS (chuckle).   When we first moved into the new building at St. Matthew's, the vestry and the building committee said, "NOW we know why you were so adamant about the acoustical treatment of the church." With a FULL church AND padded pews (which they couldn't afford to replace), it still had 3 seconds reverb, and it only seated 150 (!).   It wasn't rocket science ... triple drywall ceiling and walls, screwed together, rather than nailed, and overlapped so that seams didn't coincide; polished and colored concrete floor in the nave; slate tile floor and wainscot in the chancel; three coats of epoxy-resin-impregnated paint on everything that didn't MOVE (grin). That was basically it. I think it added something like $5K to the construction costs.   BUT, they were already committed to a nave with a 40-foot ceiling. THAT'S the real key. A space with 120 cu. ft. per seat is on the low end for acoustical purposes ... double or triple that amount is preferable .... but the height was there.   Cheers,   Bud   james nerstheimer wrote:   > Anyone visiting the NIU music building will find the four-storey > stairwells have phenomenal acoustics!
