Westgate Morris Posted September 26, 2006 Share Posted September 26, 2006 I expect a great storm from this one...go mad. My passions are still back with my Cor Anglais so you can't hurt me. (I refer to a previoius post - you may not know anything about this.) What is the right thing to do? Yikes....... Read with care........The Situation: we will call it the 'Great' organ (1/2 under expression) and some pedal at the back of a church - we will call it the 'Choir' organ and 'Swell' organ in the chancel (split left and right side) plus some pedal. [This arrangment has been thought out - space limitations - 'to die for' acoustic -parish liturgical style all factors plus a consultant (concert organist) and a builder all on board - don't focus on the design. Total organ about 30 ranks.] Current plan says we will have the 'Great' on manual 1, 'Choir' on manual 2 and 'Swell' on manual 3. I know this is very unorthodox and in my opinion will make the organ less credible than it may already appear at first glance and confusing to play. Thus, would you give the whole job French lessons and go with Grand-Orgue 1, Positif 2, Recit 3 OR.... insist on the standard Choir 1, Great 2 and Swell 3? Consider playing a service! You want sound from the 'back' .... oh, easy...bottom manual....or is that the Gt.... manual 1 or 2... darn missed a beat! Summary: Choice A - Great 1, Choir 2, Swell 3 Choice B - Grand-Orgue 1, Positif 2, Recit 3 Choice C - Choir 1, Great 2, Swell 3 Choice D - Fern Organ 1, Quire 2, Schwellwerk 3 None of the above ready, WM Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
