Pierre Lauwers Posted May 20, 2007 Author Share Posted May 20, 2007 Of course we may differ, Mr Allcoat! No problem with that: the organs differ, also the tastes. But as it is easier by far to move organists than organs, and as there are organs by the tons on the continent that suit many today'sbritish organists tastes, the solution seems obvious. What I ask is simply you leave these organs you do not like alone.......Just as I do not advocate the adding of Tubas in belgian neo-baroque organs. As Paul said, many a belgian or french organist would fall in love with something like St-Mary Redcliffe. You could realize that on my forum: http://organographia.cultureforum.net/ Of course the voicing in a Harris organ differs from an A.H.'s, no doubt. But the second is unthinkable without the former, and is a part of the same "breed", even if it is like in a mirror. Exactly the same "mirror effect" exists between the Tromba and the Trompette harmonique of Cavaillé-Coll -no Trompette harmonique, then no Tromba-....
