What a treasure trove and resource of great music, all 15 selections. Thanks
for sharing, Drew. Where else, other than with Hauptwerk, wonderful sample
sets and a truly superb installation, could such a vast musical variety be
experienced. With texture and musical expression, a true example of what
(Hauptwerk based) music is all about. :D

Happy and joyful Holidays and the best of what Christmas and the season
has to offer is our wish for all.

Thanks for posting Drew! You have done a wonderful job on the installation. Well thought out.

I tried posting about your previous concert but my account was deactivated for some reason. :(
I was finally reactivated yesterday. :D

You've made it a little warmer up here in the frozen north.

Merry Christmas!

One more recording is now up on YouTube - Festive Christmas Classics, using the Armley Schulze with the Crossroads Brass Band.

Noticed (understandably?) that the organ got slightly 'diminished' by some heavy duty brass. Nice program, tho Thanks for sharing.

You think the organ is loud until you put 24 brass players in there. Haha!

Seriously, though, I think the trim was turned down.

Does the volume trim affect only the current instrument, or does it affect the entire program (Hauptwerk)?

So the GUMC Hauptwerk organ is getting a pretty substantial upgrade.....

4 new manuals, and 90 new back-lit thumb pistons (a substantial upgrade from the original 20), plus an additional 10 (for a total of 20) toe studs.

The new manuals are coming from Arnold Organs. I simply do not have time to devote to the project to build it all myself, and doing it myself saves us minimal money compared to having someone else do it. Matt came highly recommended by several folks here on the forum.

Does anyone have any experience with their 2nd touch manuals? I stopped by Carlton Smith's shop today and tried out a Barton and a Wurlitzer console and I'm wondering if it would be a good idea to make the lowest manual 2nd touch. Without having one on hand to try out, I'm hesitant, though. Anyone?

The volume trim in Hauptwerk is a per organ setting.

Edit: Just noticed that was an old question...
