An encellent one was provided by Arthur Harrison on the Solo Organ at Ely Cathedral in 1908, comprising:   16' Contra Viola 8' Viole d' Orchestre 8' Viole Celeste 4' Viole Octaviante III Cornet de Violes (10-12-15)   Even small organs could have them: there is (or used to be) a little one-manual organ in the Grecian Masonic Temple, in the Great Eastern Hotel at Liverpool Street Station in London, built by Norman & Beard in 1912, = with the following stoplist:   Manual:   16' Bourdon 8' Open Diapason 8' Rohr Flute 8' Viol d' Orchestre 4' Viola II Cornet de Violes   Pedal: Pedal Bass Manual to Pedal coupler   Pedal:   In this case perhaps we really are talking about "chorus strings" since there is no other chorus on the organ!   John Speller

I know this is a bit late- I've been slow checking my email this week because I'm out of town and away from internet access.   The aforementioned chant can be found, with Latin text, written out in notation, in the liner notes to Todd Wilson's recording of Durufle's works. If you don't have this recording, you should- it is a standard as far as Durufle recordings go.     Blessings, Beau Surratt Director of Music and Organist First United Lutheran Church, ELCA 6705 Hohman Ave. Hammond, IN 46324     -----Original Message----- From: "Malcolm Wechsler \(Mander Organs\)" <manderusa@earthlink.net> To: "Pipe Chat" <pipechat@pipechat.org>, <BlueeyedBear@aol.com> Date: Tue, 4 Jan 2005 11:36:46 -0500 Subject: Re: durufle's epiphany prelude   > Dear Old Blue Eyes, > > As someone has just written, the work is based on the chant "Ecce > advenit" which is the introit to the Mass on the Feast of the Epiphany. > It is on page 459 of my Liber Usualis, although I am not sure that the > pagination is the same for different editions of the Liber.
