    Any registration sugguestions and practice tips for Lemmen fanfare

    Hello,
    I am starting to practice the fanfare in D by Jacque Lemmens and its really kickin me in the behind. I was hoping I can get suggestions for the most effective way of practicing a piece like this and performing it right. Playing the stacatto pedal and left hand against the legato right hand is particularly demanding for me.

    Also I will appreciate any tips as to proper registration of a piece like this on an organ with the following disposition.

    Disposition

    WOW...you sure have a wide wide selection of stops to choose from.. I would suggest you listen to a number of performers playing this piece on youtube..This will let you hear what others are using. With such a great number of trumpettes, reeds and mixtures.you surely can couple to obtain a great sounding reed /trumpette chorus for theme.... I always use a basic 8',4',2' with added reed combination for accomp. manuals... I practice most music the same..right, left, pedal by sections and then combine, then proceed to next section doing the same... then repeat first 2 sections..and continue.... on some pieces I may even learn the ending section first for a feel of the climatic conclusion of the piece to know where I am headed.......Another trick I use if possible..listening to a youtube video and trying to play along or can do this with a cd or dvd too..... sure helps you with timing, phrasing etc and I might add alittle difficult to do at frist... Good Luck and the FANFARE IS WELL WORTH LEARNING..

    That's quite the disposition! Have you played the instrument before? This may be unique to the large tracker I learned on, but from what I've seen, Trompette 8' and all variants of it vary A LOT. As I said, this may be specific to Texas, and that instrument doesn't appear Texan.

    Of all the recordings of the fanfare I've heard, I find the Gerard Brooks' from St. Ouen to be the most sensible. From what I can discern, it's a simple matter of getting 8' reeds of different strengths spread across three manuals, and going from there. If I were playing the piece (and I should really learn it soon), I'd go off of that: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svtE5iJUrgg

    37 Cymbelpfeife 1/6'

    If this is what i think it is, it might be the highest pitched stop on any organ that i know of....

    Thank you all for your responses. The organ in question is the organ of the Esztergomi Basilika in Hungary Budapest. Its a very massive church and has a 9 second accoustical reverb. I just came accross the Lemens score with registration by Eugene Thayer. It has all the suggested registrations. I can try to mail it to anyone interested or upload it somewhere online.

    Here is another video of the piece by one of my favorite young organist(Gert) with a very good teacher.
