Guest Lee Blick Posted January 26, 2006 Share Posted January 26, 2006 I have an odd question: In organ history when did the Trumpet stop become from being used as a solo to one used in the build up of a pipe chorus. I remember as a teenager being told to use the reeds sparingly. Do we use the chorus reeds too much, especially for early organ music? Should the climax of such pieces be based on drawing a mixture? Sorry if my question appears to be rather naive but I was listening to an mp3 of Edwin Lemare playing J.S. Bach's Gigue in G and throughout the whole piece he was using a flue chorus with a trumpet. It just didn't sound right to me. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
