It’s go-go-go for the stop… Image Posted on 07/12/2012 by masterofthememes Every organ stop has its moment of glory. Eventually. Spread the word:TwitterFacebookPinterestLinkedInEmailLike this:Like Loading... Related
I’m sorry but I don’t get it. Is there more to this meme than just the one picture?
This is very funny. Old and large organs invariably have a stop or a combination that is seldom if ever used and which produces an extraordinary sound – eg ‘throttled goat’. Couple that with the traditional tension between clergy and organists and hey presto!
I thought it was something that needed to be clicked to hear the stop. We have a combination new digital with old pipes organ which just developed a leak in one of the one hundred year old air chests. The whistle was right behind the tenors (me) and was most annoying. There is probably a stop that is either sub-audible or annoying and that the organist never uses, but it couldn’t be as bad as that whistle….
