  1. No big diminuendo. In this context ausklingen means "the music ends with "feierlichem Glanz". Nothing more, no fading away. Fading away would be "verklingen". Cheers tiratutti
  2. the two tubas are voiced on 700mm (27,5 inch) wind pressure. Take a look with Cathedral Organist Winfried Bönig in Das Westwerk im Kölner Dom. Cheers tiratutti
  3. Expressionen are typical in German romantic organ building. The following picture shows the elements of flue pipes in German romantic design:
  4. Hello, "Expressionen": pipes with "Überlänge" (overlength) and "Stimmrolle" (tuning roll?). I don't know the english word (perhaps tuning slot) but can show you a picture, where the "Expressionen" are marked. Cheers tiratutti
  5. Hello again, Speyer was "Freie Reichsstadt" from 1294 until 1792. So Speyer was subordinate directly to the Kaiser. Don't mix Ros (short for Rose (english rose) with today's Ross or Roß (Pferd, english horse). And keep in mind that in 1599 there was no regulated spelling. In the context of this hymn the meaning is primary rose, no matter if written ros, ros', ross, roß, röslein (diminutive). The word Reis comes from Jesaja 11,1 and means Spross (english scion, but also sprout). One word, two meanings. I think, the meaning Reis is present in the background, when there is written Ros in the first line of the hymn. Cheers tiratutti
  6. Hello from a German member: Christmas. Cheers
  7. Hello Dave, no piece, it's an improvisation. In 2014 the german hymnal Gotteslob was renewed. Since then "Abide with me" is used for Nr. 94 "Bleib bei uns Herr, die Sonne gehet nieder." and for 325 "Bleibe bei uns, du Wandrer durch die Zeit!" Cheers tiratutti
  8. Hello, yes, I have the "50 pieces sur des thèmes liturgiques des dimanches et fêtes de l'année". You will find the content here. Extracts from the foreword, written by Félix Raugel : ... L'organiste liturgique trouvera donc ici des morceaux de diverse importance pour cadrer avec les différentes phases de l'office: Préludes pour les Entrées, les Offertoires et les Sorties; pièces brèves pour les Interludes et les Versets; méditations recueillies pour les Élévations et Communions. Tous les procédés de l'école: fugues, canons à tous les intervalles, motifs obstinés de carillon, chromatises discrets aux enchaînements ingénieux, y sont employés spontanément, sans asservir ni paralyser le sentiment moderne de l'expression musicale, strictement conforme aux principes d'esthétique posés ou rappelés par les pontifes musiciens qui, de nos jours, ont assuré la réforme et la renaissance de la musique d'église. ... Cheers tiratutti
  9. Hello, Specification Grand Hotel Pupp Karlsbad Cheers tiratutti
  10. Hello, You will find some information about the organ at orgbase.nl. The organ has three "Freie Kombinationen" (free combinations) and the little levers above each stop are for the preparation of the combinations. Cheers tiratutti
  11. Hello, take a look at Freiburg Cathedral. The services are daily at 7:00, 8:00, 18:30. Sundays at 7:00, 8:00, 10:00, 12:00, 20:00. Cheers tiratutti
  12. Organ of the basilica St. Donatien and St. Rogatien. Cheers tiratutti
  13. Hello, take a look at: Edwin Lemare: Summer sketches op. 73 which has a movement called "Cuckoo" Louis Claude Daquin: Rondeau "Le Coucou" Johann Xaver Nauss: Parthie auf das Clavier "Gugu" (contained in "Augsburger Orgel- und Klaviermusik des 16.-19. Jahrhunderts") Andreas Willscher: Vogelarium Eight Pieces containing pigeon, nightingale, grey partridge, raven, pelican, sparrow and eagle. Cheers tiratutti
  14. Hello, after the final christmas carol "Menschen, die ihr wart verloren" (now Number 245 from the "Katholische Gebet- und Gesangbuch"), Bönig plays a modulation from D major to C major (2:30 to 3:30) and then it is a setting of the french carol "Ou s'en vont ces gais Bergers". Perhaps from a french composer like Balbastre or Dandrieu. Cheers tiratutti
  15. Hello, there is a collection called Zeitgenössische Orgelmusik im Gottesdienst (Contemporary organ music for the service) with five pieces by Samuel Ducommun: Prélude en Ut - Toccata - Prélude en fa - Preludio con Fuga - Ciacona Cheers tiratutti
