  1. 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
  2. Expressionen are typical in German romantic organ building. The following picture shows the elements of flue pipes in German romantic design:
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. Hello from a German member: Christmas. Cheers
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. Hello, look at the site of Hans-Jürgen Reuschel. He has designed such things. Cheers tiratutti
  9. Hello, yes, it is a Christmas hymn, and, no, it can't be sung at any time of the year. The text goes down to the gregorian chant "Puer natus est" which is the introitus of Christmas. Cheers tiratutti
  10. Hello, Wunderlich was born 1919. I'm not sure if the sound is that of the Sauer organ at Berlin Dom. Wunderlich recorded in 1989 at St. Michael, Schwäbisch Hall, Reger op. 57. The CD from Berlin Dome is from 1999 and contains op. 46, op. 59/9 and op. 127. No op. 57. Two possibilities: the attribute Berlin Dome is not correct or the recording is older than 1989. Cheers tiratutti
  11. Hello, I play Bédard quite often. In 2004 Sophie-Véronique Cauchefer-Choplin played the Suite pour orgue at Freiburg Minster in concert. If you are searching for a final movement I suggest the Trois Postlude CH.50. Cheers tiratutti
  12. Hello, my sources say that it was originally published in 1954 by Harris Oakville/Ontario and that there was a reissue by Randall M. Eagan in 1979. Original title: Three pieces (Prelude and fugue in g-minor, Tema ostinato, Festival). Unfortunately I don't know if Randall M. Eagan has a website. Anybody knows? I'm also interested. Cheers tiratutti
  13. Hello Pierre, I don't like to have to correct you, but you stress this point to an extent which allows no fault. The only almost-Trost organ we have are Großengottern, Waltershausen, Altenburg. The one with a pedal-transmitted mixture from the Hauptwerk is Waltershausen. The organ in Großengottern has no pedal transmission and no pedal mixture, the organ in Altenburg also not. Großengottern has one mixture per manual. The organ in Altenburg has one mixture per manual. Waltershausen has one at the Hauptwerk and one at the Brustwerk. The Obermanual has no mixture. And no sesquialter. And
  14. Hello, only one reply from me. My native language is German. So I never post only in German, because this would be impolite (unhöflich) on an english board. I go with pcnd5584 that only posting the german text is not helpful. The text from Felix Friedrich is not clear. In the first phrase he says, that the mixtures are used economically and sparse(!) The next phrase is not clear, because of the word "Werk". Does it mean every manual or does it mean the whole organ? It translates to "Without exception every 'Werk' has only one mixtur (with third)". Also not clear is the brace (with t
  15. Hello, the UE-Edition says: Fragment of a piano suite (Overture, Allemande, Courante, Sarabande). Conclusion (bars 80-86) and organ adaption of the Grave by Martin Haselböck. Organ version of the fugue based on contemporary MS. copies and on the first printed organ version in M. Berra's "Museum für Orgelspieler", III, p. 76. Composed: 1782 in Vienna Cheers tiratutti
  16. Hello, congregational singing? Wolfgang Seifen at Himmerod Abbey! Cheers tiratutti
  17. Hello, the piece is Henri Mulet's Carillon-Sortie in D major. Cheers tiratutti
