  1. Worcester added one to the already present (how many) 32's ...
  2. Though not on youtube, INA has published some Cochereau "chez lui".
  3. Pierre, your second example is played on a very thin neo-baroque - not sure if Mendelssohn's music deserves such fait ...
  4. Pictures of the Transepts interior are appreciated!
  5. Up another road from Gloucester there's this one. (It is isn't it?)
  6. Some more of the lesser known post-Cochereau NDdP titulair, .The organ sounding better here, than it did live (as I remember having met YD there).
  7. In the Mattäus-passion days, like myself, many of us may be playing on a 'chestorgan' (is that the correct translation for the 'truhenorgel'?). Just wondering: in a baroque orchestra, where does this organ fit in? Is it an acurate copy of a baroque instrument or is it (as I suspect) in fact a 20th century (neo-baroque) invention? I know of only two examples (seen on photo) of 'real' baroque organs-like-a-box, but these were actually normal organs in a different housing (quite large in fact).
  8. Sauerkraut and creme brulee ?
  9. We currently have an action going on in A'dam to raise funds to ship an organ to a south-american conservatoire - there's no pipe-organ available for the students. It may well be because of lack of funds for organs, which again may in some way be good news for the preservation of historical instruments. So possibly this Mutin might be in quite a original state? About the possible changes - may be "sagrerasmh83" who has plummered the youtubes could do some research (he is an organ student - get on with it!)
  10. Listen to it here and here.
  11. Interesting! Must be good: there's even a Schnitger organ (Brasil - Minas Gerais) ;-)
  12. The organ of St.Peter, Sarciston Durham is coming to the 'gereformeerde kerk' in Oud-Beijerland, picture
  13. Interesting, the other day Discovery Channel showed 'How it's made' on lamp poles (is that correct english) made of fibre glass and I was wondering how this would stand up as material for large pedal reeds (32's) ...
  14. Last saturday while on a holiday in Egypt, prof.dr. Ewald Kooiman died at age 70.
  15. Compare with bar 36: must be a C#.
  16. 'Our' Hill organ has a 4' Gemshorn on the swell which in holland could have been named an 'octaaf 4'' (on a secondary manual). It's quite 'stringy' in the bass and becomes more 'diapason' in the treble. A truly remarkable stop; combined with the 8' oboe, close the box and play big chords - micro-full-swell, or nice to play as an echo stop against the big principal 4, or in the low octave in big chords as a string against the lieblichgedeckt (underpinned by the bourdon16') .....
  17. Use: [url=http://here.my.url]HERE[/url]
  18. Sydney Grand Organ Inside yep; with the 64'. Do we know that Englishman
  19. This disc was recorded on the Edmonton organ.
  20. Is the BMH, SG organ the one recorded on??
