Paul Isom Posted October 24, 2019 Share Posted October 24, 2019 It’s been fascinating reading the various permutations of the dream specifications. I have long been fascinated with small organ design and there have been many articles on this, the most recent in the BIOS annual book by Relf Clarke. Here is a fascinating essay in small organ design by Fisk for a small chapel: http://cbfisk.com/opus/opus-149/ My little Mutin-Cavaille Coll at Meursault has the following outrageous stoplist: MANUAL 16 Bourdon 8 Montre 8 Flute Harmonique 8 Salicional 4 Prestant III Plein Jeu 16 Tuba Magna 8 Trompette 4 Soprano PEDAL 16 Soubasse This organ is extremely versatile and in a very shallow case - only the width of the console, which swell shutters on front and back of the case. To player this organ is very very loud, but in the church it is a marvellous sound. So, within a 12 speaking stop maximum, who can come up with a versatile liturgical/house organ. Tonal variety is top of the wish list - even undulating ranks are allowed. The organ must have mechanical action. Have fun. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
