    Gee guys - thats a hard one - lets see, Montre 8' + Flute Harmonique 8' + Bourdon 8' + Violoncelle 8' . Now, all that richness equals the melange which made the Cavaille-Coll four foundation sound so famous.

    Here's an article which deals exactly with the four foundations:

    http://www.users.dircon.co.uk/~oneskull/3.6.03.htm
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    Gee Friends

    I like very much bourdon 8' + flute 2'. In my country we call it "jeux creux" (hollow stops combination). i enjoy also bourdon 8' + flute4 ' + tierce 1-3/5 and in an other style gamba 8' + celeste 8'.
    But in fact what I prefer is playing with two manuals. In this case, I like flutes 8'-4' for left hand and regale 8' for right hand (soloiste).
    but in fact, I could fill ten pages of registrations, they are so much I like.

    It seems that "bourdon" is a very popular stop. Since I don't have this stop on my organ, could somebody please tell me what stop or stop combination would be the equivalent of "bourdon"? Is it a reed?

    Hello
    I am very surprise that you have no bourdon. It is the softer stop of an organ. May be you have Gedackt that is very similar. If not, try with a flute.

    Thanks, Musicalis. Yes, I have Gedackt on the swell and on the pedal. I just didn't know what bourdon was.

    I only have a Bourdon 16ft on the pipe organ I play. Think an 8ft would be very nice.

    I like it nice and mellow:
    PEDAL
    Subbas/Bourdon 16'
    Gedekbas 8'
    Couplers - Swell to pedal 8'

    SWELL
    Gamba 8'
    Gedektfluit 4'

    GREAT
    Roerfluit 8'
    and maybe Blokfluit 4'

    To wake up the congregation before they start singing our organist likes:
    PEDAL- Subbas 16'; Oktaafbas 8'; Gedekbas 8'; couplers Great & Swell 8' + Sell 4'
    SWELL- Holpyp 8'; Gamba 8'; Prinsipaal 4'; Gedektfluit 4'; couplers Swell to Swell 16' & 4'
    GREAT- Prestant 8'; Roefluit 8'; Oktaaf 4'; Blokfluit 4'; couplers Sw to Gr 16', Sw to Gr 8' & Sw to Gr 4'
    and after the intro we add Super Oktaaf 2' and Mikstuur 3-4. During the singing we add 4 of the 5 remaining stops not used yet. If I dare to deviate from this during a service I get the evil eye from the organist, so I guess she likes it a lot.

    That is more interesting that single manual registration.

    About single manuals, do you know it is possible to split a manual with an ODF (virtual Organ Definition) to play 2 manuals works when you have only one ?

    Never heard the term. One of our local churches however has a single manual organ, on part of the manual the colouring of the keys are reversed (sharps/flats are white, other keys are black). This section has it's own set of stops, if you use the same stop combination as for the rest of the organ then you have on long manual, if you use a different registration it's similar to two manuals (although very awkward playing with your left hand).

    Would this be similar to what you are reffering?
