What do you think?

 

Best wishes,

Pierre Lauwers.

That is a gorgeous sound Pierre....I want one!

 

I also came across an example of a Physharmonica from somewhere in Poland, which sounded so utterly beautiful.

 

I'll try and find out the source.

This stop too we shall reconsitute in Namur.

 

(Just an aftertought: both are indeed free-reed, Harmonium-like stops!)

 

Best wishes,

That is equally gorgeous....I want it!

 

Actually, this will delight Pierre. There was an Aneesens organ from Belgium in St.Joseph's RC church, Bradford, which had an equally beautiful and haunting Clarinet to that quoted by Pierre.

 

I wonder if that too was a free-reed type?

 

Sadly, I almost wept when I learned that the instrument had been broken up and discarded....that Clarinet was priceless.

Although I think this klarinette sounds nice, I'm more impressed by the 'clarinet' sound that John Scott produced on CD at St.Paul's in Duruflé's Alain (interlude part) - anyone who knows what stop that was?

Anneessens was a flemish buider, whose cultural influences were

above all dutch, french and english; he never built free-reed stops.

The belgian builders who built free-reeds Clarinets and Cor anglais

where from Brussels: Schyven and Kerkhoff, both influenced by

Walcker and Merklin.

They never build Physharmonikas, tough, while some alsacian builders

like Rinckenbach did (one seems to remain).

 

Again: Anneessens has a successor in Belgium.

In an ideal EC (to my taste at least), this one should restore

the Annessens in UK -and Mr Mander build some organs here-.

 

Best wishes,

pierre
