Justadad Posted July 17, 2007 Share Posted July 17, 2007 Hi My son takes his ARCO practical exam next week and his alloted practice time on the organ is tomorrow (Wednesday) afternoon. One of his pieces is 'Récits de cromone et de cornet séparé en dialogue from Clérambault’s Premier Livre d’Orgue, Suite du Premier Tons'. (http://imslp.net/images/e/ec/Clerambaultorgue.pdf for reference.) This is the organ: http://npor.emma.cam.ac.uk/cgi-bin/Rsearch...ec_index=D03400 Hurford says, in Making Music on the Organ: "Tierce en taille. Accompaniment: Bourdon 8', Prestant or Flute 4'; or perhaps Bourdons 16' and 8', or perhaps coupled to the Grand Orgue instead, Solo (usually on the Positif): Bourdon 8', Prestant (or Flute) 4', Nazard 2 2/3', Doublette (a fluty principal) 2', Tierce 1 3/5', Larigot 1 1/3'. This combination should be rich and homgenous - like the voice of a solo tenor. "Chromhorne en taille. Accomapniment: as above. Solo: Chromone 8', Bourdon 8', Prestant (or Flute) 4', and perhaps the Nazard 2 2/3'. "Dessus, or Récits de chromhorne. This would probably use neither the 4' nor the 2 2/3'. If the Chromhorne is attractive it may even be used on its own. The accompaniment would be Bourdon 8' alone or with the addition of a Flute 4' if the tone of the 8' proved indeterminate or unclear." Any advice greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Justadad Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
