    No, I mean Elhanan Q. Hackenback. St. Gladys de la Croix??? Never heard of it, and I'm sure I would have by now, if it really existed.

    The version I saw had a long, LONG story about the process of building the organ, which seemed to go on for generations. But of course, the "expected completion date of c.2015" hasn't gotten here yet. Just give them time. But the stop list in your citation is pretty impressive.

    Strange, when I lived in Washinton Heights in New York I never did once run across a Cathedral named St. Gladys de la Croix, but of course, its a fictional Cathedral. Now, if you travel in a southerly direction from Washington Heights you come to a place called Morningside Heights. There is a Cathedral(St. John the Divine) which can easily swallow up and provide the acoustic required for the Elhanan Q. Hackenback organ

    St. John the Divine is just that, in all regards.
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    Speaking of super-low frequencies, the following experiment is rather fun to "listen" to.

    I just posted that I was able to determine the lowest note as 17 Hz, and upon researching it I was right; 16.31 Hz; pretty dang close, with no training or experience whatsoever.

    During WW2 ultra low frequency was experimentally used as a weapon it was known to cause involuntary evacuation of the bowels, unfortunately being none directional it affected every one friend and foe alike, so while it worked it was of no use.

    No, of course not John I understand!
    As I recall it gave rise to the term 'The trickle down theory" which economists now use to mean something quite different.
