Guest Cynic Posted May 14, 2008 Share Posted May 14, 2008 To get us back to the original topic, I have a further problem/question. With plenty of stop-tabs to fill on the main console and wanting to have the most resourceful and interesting job to play as I (hopefully) process in a stately way towards my dotage, I had planned (as mentioned above) to include a Septieme in my Swell organ. All large and fine, however.... the chest is now in and wired up, a small rank of pipes is in, capable of either a boldish string or a gentle flute sound and all points between. I have tuned and voiced sample notes and have been surprised to find that at no volume nor tone does this stop seem to have any appreciable use. My Swell 16 8 8 8 4 reeds are already bright and don't need extra clang and melodically IMHO it's useless. As an experiment, I transposed an octave of these pipes by a tone and suddenly I had something I know I would use, viz an Octavin or Sifflote. The chest will not take a wide Tierce, but in any case I have one already planned for the division above. I have no need of a narrow Tierce, there is one on the Choir as part of a traditional Sesquialtera and there is an independent Tierce on the (main) Great. There is a mounted Cornet around the place too - though exactly which keyboard it should play from is still undecided. I already have a Larigot (unenclosed Choir) and a Nineteenth (enclosed Choir). What would you do folks? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
