    To my dear colleagues Contratrombone64, Krummhorn, and others too numerous to mention,

    LMFAO (love me forever adults only ... as a friend of mine came up with for this abbreviation), however in this case the traditional meaning is apt.

    That is amazing and I think it might be noisy? However, closely looking at the big horn, one wonders if Photoshop wasn't used ... I could (and often am) be wrong!!

    hhmm ... I wonder if anyone would notice if I just put that up by the organ.
    They'd certainly notice when it sounded :-)

    Hello Jonesey,

    Actually, the best place for this type of pipe if it were a tuned rank of pipes is within the main case of the organ. So, people who expect an average concert instrument are then floored by overwhelming quantities of driven sound. You'll then "make their day".

    Cheers,

    Nah, I'll put the set behind the last row of pews, facing forward. I don't think we'll have any trouble waking the congregation up out of their slumber when they have to sing.

    Actually, I would prefer the Victory Siren to announce the Prelude. Maybe that would be the wakeup call the congregation needs to shut their traps and prepare for worship

    Hi Krummhorn,

    The Victory Siren to announce the prelude? That could probably be interpreted as torture

    No more torture than the congregation gives me every week in loud conversation over my prelude music ... ... they just won't shut up ... if I play louder, they start talking all the more louder.
    There are times when I can't even hear myself playing, and the pipes are only 15 feet from the console!!

    A common problem for lots of organists ... but when the pastor enters with the acolyte, they all go silent real quick, like conversation is then a "mortal sin." It was Martin Luther who said that "next to the Word of God, music ... ... ". My Lutheran parish keeps forgetting those words.

    Dearest Krummhorn,

    I feel your pain - When I served as organist for a parish many years ago I had the same problem. One day I had lunch with the priest and I mentioned the conversations inside the sanctuary before the service. The tenor of the conversing inside the sanctuary sometimes bordered on the ribald and I felt it inappropriate.

    I suggested a pedestal mounted sign with the message: Please be mindful that this sanctuary is consecrated to the Lord's work - Keep the conversations outside and away from the sanctuary. The sign went up the next Sunday morning - problem solved!

    Cheers,

    The church I attend has a speak to god before the service and speak to your friends after the service policy. So it's pretty quiet most of the time. Bells n Smells and all that.

    The church I play for doesn't generally have a problem with people talking over the music before the service.
    On the occasions it has happened however I found that a pause between pieces, and a well timed cough from the organ loft generally stops the chatter!!!.
