    Hey Contratrombone and Judy, thanks for the compliments! You got me blushing!

    I've been away from the forum for awhile, so I'm sorry I didn't reply sooner. Knowing that someone appreciates your work is a real help to spur you on to do more.

    The organ in most of the clips on my website is a Holtkamp. You can read about it here: http://www.lvago.org/muhlcoll.html

    Yes, I love cats, but don't have any of my own because of allergies. However I like spending time with other people's cats. A neighbor has a cat that comes over here during the summer. I believe he thinks I'm his uncle.

    Tom

    Hi Contratrombone,

    The Pommer 16' is a flue stop. It works sort of like a heavy-ish Bourdon on that organ. It's on for the Wedge and Kyrie clips on my website. I tend not to be squeamish about using manual 16's for plenum combinations, including when playing fugues. That organ is difficult to register as it has a pretty thin sound.
