Guest Barry Williams Posted April 9, 2007 Share Posted April 9, 2007 This afternoon my wife and I were listening to a radio broadcast from King's College Cambridge. The 'thump' of the underactions was very distracting. This often arises from the Swell Organ when there is a double set of under-actions, one for the flues and another for the higher pressure chorus reeds. The pistons were very noisy too. Surely, these days, such unmusical intrusions can be avoided by organ builders, or is this the same as tracker action, where the unremitting clatter is deemed to be an acceptable historical accompaniment to music?
