(back) Subject: Re: Rollschweller and cone valve chests. - the response From: "Andy Lawrence" <lawrenceandy@gmail.com> Date: Sat, 21 May 2005 05:04:49 -0400   I play a small organ with just 3 divisionals on the great and 3 on the swell, so I'm always looking for ways to aid registration, occasionally using an assistant. The crescendo is mechanical, but the order of stops can be adjusted by removing the back panel of the console and adjusting each contact with a screwdriver. At least once, I changed it so I could use the crescendo as one general "piston". I don't remember what the combination was, but the idea was that the pedal would either be fully on or fully off. Its enough of pain so as not to be worth it unless only a few stops have to be adjusted to get the right combo. But with the solid state system you describe, this could be a very practical use of the crescendo pedal. You could perhaps even use the crescendo pedal as 2 or 3 "generals" where middle would be one setting, fully on another setting. This would make it useless for an actual crescendo, of course, but only until you hit another piston to change it back. The crescendo pedal is much easier to find by feel than a toe stud.   Just an idea.. always think out of the box! Bach did...   Andy     > By the way, the crescendo in this > system has four different programmable levels, so the addition of registe= rs > can be set four different ways, and there is no compulsion to have every > stop drawn by the pedal being open all the way.

Someone plese tell me why= =20 >having TWO cornets is more important than to have ONE reed chorus. =20   I guess it depends on what you want to play. Then again, one cornet is probably cheaper than one reed chorus. Once you have one cornet, and want to add something, a second cornet would be cheaper than one reed chorus also, so again it could come down to economics (or cheapness, depending on your point of view).   > reeds are=20 >=20 > >a trompette on the Great (which causes me to wonder in the first place) = and > a=20 >=20 > >16 Dulzian, and 8' Cormorne in the "Swell", and a Trombone 16 in the ped= al. > =20 >=20 > >Wouldn't it be better to put the trumpet in the swell, and the cromorne = on > the=20 >=20 > >great?=20   >I just don't get organs with fully developed greats, yet wimpy,buzzy swells.

Much cheaper to have it in the swell instead of a tall and fat trumpet.

Well, if all of these were only a matter of economics (aka being cheap in this cases) I had much rather have a smaller organ with only one decent manual reed, one cornet, and a pedal reed with no swell box than have an organ such as what Andy mentioned that is so poorly designed in an effort to be cheap. I mean, Franck's music is gorgeous whether or not you have a swell box and full reed choruses on every manual. In almost every case a smaller musically designed organ is far more valuable than a larger cheeply designed organ imho.     Blessings, Beau Surratt, Organist First Congregational Church, UCC Glen Ellyn, IL  
(back) Subject: Schlag & Soehn From: "Colin Mitchell" <cmys13085@yahoo.co.uk> Date: Sat, 21 May 2005 06:29:24 -0700 (PDT)   Hello,   Digging up the history of Polish organs, which has to include organ-builders of the old Prussian region by necessity, I came across an organ-building firm of whom I have not heard previously.   The names of Walcker, Steinmeyer, Schulze and Sauer are well enough known, but who I wonder, has anyone ever heard of the firm Schlag & Soehn? (Schlag & Sons)   Incredibly, this firm built or re-built over 1200 organs!   Many of their organs, (or rebuilds of earlier organs) are now within the boundaries of Poland.   Here is a translation of a web-site I stumbled across, which makes interesting reading; especially the comment that the firm first used electro-pneumatic actions as early as 1888!   SCHLAG & SOEHN   The company Schlag & Soehne, Schweidnitz, was established by Christian Gottlieb Schlag (* 1803 Staschwitz in Thuringia - =861889 Schweidnitz). He studied with Sch=F6nburg in Schafstaedt (Thuringia),and then with Andreas Engelhardt (Herzberg), Hammer (Magdeburg) and Kiesewalter (Jauer), after whose death in 1831, Schlag set up in business on his own at Jauer.   "1832 he took his brother Johann Karl Schlag (* 1808 Staschwitz - =86um 1870 Schweidnitz), as a partner in the new enterprise.   In 1834, the fime moved to Schweidnitz.   With the arrival at the firm of Christian Schlag's sons : Theodor Schlag (* 1847 Schweidnitz - =861912 ebenda) and Oskar Schlag (* 1848 Schweidnitz - =861918 ebenda) in the year 1869, the enterprise was extended.   In 1903 the sons of Theodor Schlag: Reinhold Schlag (* 1874 Schweidnitz - =86nach 1952) and Bruno Schlag (* 1879 Schweidnitz - =861951 yard/Upper Franconia) joined the firm. By this time, the company had over 120 employees at the peak of their activity. The firm closed in 1923.   Several notable technological features were utilised by the firm. After 1870, they used cone-valve chests of modern design, register "schweller" foot pedals, pressure pneumatic action after 1875 and in 1888, electro-pneumatic action with free combination mechanism.(Berlin, Philharmonic Concert Hall).   In 1914, the firm completed Opus 1000.   Oskar Schlag was founder and first chairmen of the association of German masters of building of organs. He retired in 1906.   The company were very productive; building approximately 1200 organs. Their spehere of activity extended well beyond the immediate area, and of those organs which survive in original condition, the quality of them is recognised and held in high regard.     =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK     __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?

Moderately rebuilt in 1967, Christian Scheffler restored it in 1999. The result is marvellous.

(back) Subject: Organ building in communist Europe From: "Colin Mitchell" <cmys13085@yahoo.co.uk> Date: Sat, 21 May 2005 09:54:28 -0700 (PDT)   Hello,   You start one thing, and something quite different emerges.   I was browsing various sites, maps, organ-builder's lists, musical history and such, but then came across something quite poignant, which could serve as an epitaph to the communist rule in the former "Eastern Bloc" countries of Central Europe.   The former East German organ-builder, Voigt, set out in their web-site just what it was like to be an organ-builder under communist rule.....a grim story indeed.   It is a similar story in other countries, where generations of tradition were swept away by the dogma of communism and the petty intervention of state officials.   =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D   ORGAN BUILDING IN GDR (Condensed from the Voigt o.b.company web-site)   During the period of the GDR-rule there were about 18 organ-building companies in the 1950's, governed by state legislation and structurally divided into four industrial enterprises. The remaining companies, Voigt and two others, with a maximum of 10 employees, remained as private workshops. As early as 1957, an act was passed by the former Chairman of the Council of State, W.Ulbricht, officially prohibiting the admission of organ builders from the GDR to the special college in Ludwigsburg (West-Germany).   After the construction of the Wall in Berlin in 1961,the GDR was completely cut off from the West. In 1971, E. Honecker (The Prime Minister) was determined to destroy private enterprise by setting himself against all private and semi-nationalized companies. He dealt a severe blow to all in the private craft industries, from which the GDR-economy never recovered. The GDR-Foreign Trade Ministry set up "DEMUSA" which was responsible for the manufacture and export of all musical instruments. Trade companies were prohibited from exporting their goods.   At this time, there were stringent regulations for calculating wages and overhead costs with stipulated variables, unrelated to the specific economies. The master craftsman worked at subsistence levels. In consequence young skilled workers moved away from private industry. The passing on of skills from father to son was destroyed. In the eighties, the currency became inflated. To protect the GDR-population in their basic requirements, there were three values for the GDR-"Mark" and a great number of other auxiliary structures:   1. The "Mark of the population" (and the churches), the so-called old price. 2. The "Mark of the state facilities and enterprises" with the same currency (so-called new price). 3. The "hard currency " (convertible currencies, mostly DM) with their shops requiring hard currency, such as Intershop, Genex, Intrax and others.   The tin price applicable in organ-building in 1989 reveals clearly the way the GDR economy had fallen apart. In the fifties the church had to pay 5 GDR Mark for one kg of tin, the new price came to 125 GDR Marks. At this time, the price on the world market came to about DM 16. These financial difficulties were aggravated by the permanent lack of skilled labor. In these conditions it was virtually impossible to found any new enterprises. Economic stagnation was everywhere, and extended to the highest levels in Government. It was extremely difficult to get a sensible answer to any question. The attitude was also characteristic of the cooperation of all organ-builders for years (above all, since 1972). The organ-builders could no longer work as an independent product group, but had to work under the direction of the Piano Union Leipzig and in accord with Communist Party instructions.   Private enterprise (as a concept) and with it, artistic freedom in the design and technological innovation disappeared in the GDR. Central planning was repressive. Exports were prohibited, high taxes were everywhere, wages were prescribed by the communist authorities and the number of employees governed.   Despite this repressive environment with an imposed limit of ten employees, the Voigt company grew and established one of the finest reputations in the GDR.   =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D     I guess they suffered, as they did in other communist regimes!   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK       __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!?
