(back) Subject: Re:Carillons vs "Symphonic Carillons" From: <RMB10@aol.com> Date: Sun, 17 Apr 2005 05:38:45 EDT   Speaking as a carillonneur, I'll "chime" in here. A real cast bell = carillon has bells tuned with a very prominent minor third harmonic, in addition to = the other harmonics in the bell--prime, sub-prime, minor third, octave, quint, =   etc. The Maas-Rowe Symphonic Carillon sought to over come the complaint = that some things sounded out of tune because of the minor third harmonic. Now, = mind you, this system uses tuned metal rods with pick ups that amplify the = sound, so it's not really bells. This system has some rods tuned with minor = thirds and some tuned with major thirds, and when you play, you select the key = that you are going to be playing in, and it automatically selects the proper bars, = so it will be in tune. Some systems play from organ consoles, other ones = play from their own consoles which were built by Moller in the old days. They = had all sorts of things on them like Harp and Chimes and Carillon. Coral = Ridge Presbyterian Church has a Maas-Rowe Symphonic Carillon connected to the = Ruffatti organ, but they have someone who plays the bells prior to the service. = The GCNA does NOT recognize these as a legitimate carillon.   Hope this helps.   Monty Bennett

I found a picture and brief description of Mr. Ray's career at this site:   http://www.wicc600.com/history/1940book/1940bookpage16.htm   As far as I know, Garo Ray held the title of Doctor, and although I don' know what area this title applied to for sure, I'd say it was probably electrical engineering if I had to make a bet. He seems to have had a hobby in providing some local (southern CT) Churches with low cost pipe organs. From the one I have seen, and the one a friend of mine had seen, this was accomplished by using a number of single rank chests (that number to match the number of manual stops at least) connected with 2" flexhaust.   Despite the fact that Mr. Ray is likely deceased, he is still remembered in local circles here. Mr. Ray, or one of his associates, had some sort of association with Harry Hall of New Haven. This was more or less confirmed when I cracked open one of the single rank chests I obtained from the Shelton organ, which had the Hall-style square pouch blocks, nailed to the toe board just like Hall did it, and tubed off to the magnets with rubber tubes. As crude as this method of construction sounds, the Hall multi-rank chests actually had a pitman action with hundreds of little tubes going from the bottom of the chest to the various pouch blocks, which is why they are affectionately known as "spaghetti chests". A beautiful, restored example of an original Harry Hall can be seen and heard at the Bristol Cemetery Chapel in Bristol, CT; it really is a nice little organ, just right for the space.   There you have it.   - Nate    
(back) Subject: Re: WARNING -- Hector Olivera at Methuen Mass -- WARNING From: "Walter Greenwood" <walterg@nauticom.net> Date: Sun, 17 Apr 2005 13:25:49 -0400   The fact is, Greg, that Hector can play Franck, Vierne, Tournemire, and Bach better in his sleep than most of us can awake. And he keeps his audience awake while doing so, a notable achievement in this modern world of organ playing in which "Allegro" is taken to mean "Andante" and "diminuendo" is taken to mean nothing at all. You are being unexpectedly snobbish for someone who loves the likes of Jimmy Smith and Joey Defrancesco as much as both you and I do. What do you have against my good friend from Argentina, besides the fact that he makes good money playing pop tunes on a Roland? At least he doesn't have to fix computers or sell insurance to put food on the table.

(back) Subject: Re: St. Salvator's Cathedral Organ, Bruges, Belgium From: "Colin Mitchell" <cmys13085@yahoo.co.uk> Date: Sun, 17 Apr 2005 12:12:38 -0700 (PDT)   Hello,   Bruge (or Brugge) cathedral appears to have the following instrument:-     The original instrument was built between 1771 and 1719 by Jacubus van Eynde. The organ had two manuals.   The organ appears to have been maintained by the descendents of the original building; including Hooghuys, whom I believe was also a builder of Fair Organs (Band Organs).   In 1902, it seems that a Swell organ was added by G.Cloetens.   In 1935, the organ was moved, rebuilt and enlarged by Klais of Bonn, with electro-pneumatic action. It is claimed that the old van Eynde pipework was carefully restored at this time.   The specification is as follows:-   PEDAAL(P)   Principaal 16 Gedekt 16 Zachtbas 16 Kwint 10 2/3 Oktaaf 8 Fluit 8 Oktaaf 4 Gedekt 4 Cimbel II Ruispijp III-IV Bazuin 16 Trompet 8 Schalmei 4   P+I P+II P+III ONDERWERK(I)   Gedekt 8 Principaal 8 Oktaaf 4 Gemshoorn 4 Nazard 2 2/3 Woudfluit 2 Mixtuur III Schalmei 8   POSITIEF (I)   Holpijp 8 Prestant 4 Fluit 4 Oktaaf 2 Terts 1 3/5 Kleine Kwint 1 1/3 Stemmeke 1 Cimbel II Vulwerk III Kromhoorn 8   I+II I+III I+III(16') HOOFDWERK (II)   Gedekt 16 Prestant 8 Roerfluit 8 Gamba 8 Oktaaf 4 Fluit 4 Nazard 2 2/3 Oktaaf 2 Nachthoorn 2 Sesquialter II Vulwerk IV Scherp III Cornet V Pommer 16 Trompet 8 Klaroen 4   II+I II+II(16') II+III II+III(16')   RECIT EXPRESSIVE (III)   Roergedekt 8 Grote Fluit 8 Gamba 8 Zweving 8 Kwintadeen 8 Principaal 4 Dwarsfluit 4 Oktaaf 2 Echocornet III-V Cimbel II Dulciaan 16 Trompet 8 Hobo 8   III+III(16')   Recent work has seen the removal of the sub-octave couplers.   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK       --- Dominic Scullion <dominicscullion@email.com> wrote: > Has anyone played the above organ?

Whether or not I felt that the Roland machine was = "fooling" me into believing that there was a symphony orchestra present was not the point. What WAS important was that the MUSIC came first, and almost all = in attendance were captivated. While the Roland system is played from an organ-like console, I never felt that I was being TOLD that it was an "organ" or a "digital pipe = organ," or that I was even supposed to BELIEVE that it was an organ. There was no deception, either by the company or the artist, but there was a lot of = illusion, along with Hector's talent, humor, and decades and decades of the type of hard = work that few of us are willing to do. Chacun a son gout, so some may wish to sit very tightly and frown when =   the rest of the assembly are having the time of their lives. However, if = one applies the universal criterion of QUALITY, one must admit that whatever = Hector does as a performer, entertainer, musician, and illusionist, is done very = well. That is why I can listen to a brilliant performance of early literature on = a superbly built historically-based mechanical action back-to-back with a fun-filled performance of great songs from the American stage played on a = superb cinema organ. Hector isn't going away, and there will be some Hector "wannabes" who will fade into oblivion. What we DO know is that an appreciation for the = organ as an instrument IS going away, especially in the traditional worship venues. = If we ever were to succeed in suppressing the likes of Hector Olivera (which will not happen), who will be left?   Sebastian M.
