octave_dolce Posted August 25, 2008 Share Posted August 25, 2008 Here are three questions for the many experienced organists on this forum. All of them have to do with Franck's Choral in A Minor. 1) Do you use any 16' foundation stops in the bars marked Largamente? Franck does not provide such an indication, but I have heard some people do it and liked it. 2) Would you modify any of given registration, even if you are playing the piece on any organ that has all the required stops? 3) What did the octaves graves pedals do on the organ at St. Clotilde? I am looking at its stop list as printed in a fairly popular method book. The author shows "Octaves graves (16' couplers): G.O./G.O., Pos./Pos., Rec./Pos.". Are these really subcouplers or do they simply turn the 16' stops on or off? For some reason, I find it very difficult to register this piece properly. The notes are not that hard, but the sounds that I make in the latter half of the piece are simply unsatisfactory. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
