Oberlin Conservatory of Music
Independent Voices: 6 Voices
This new continuo organ for the Oberlin Conservatory is designed to support and lead ensembles varying from a vocalist or instrumentalist in solo recital to a full chorus and orchestra for large-scale oratorio, passion, or mass settings.
At the heart of the instrument is a flexible stoplist, including an 8′ Open Treble in the façade and a 4′ Principal to provide a substantial core to the sound. The 2 2/3′ Quint Treble can bring out a solo line against a bass accompaniment or serve with the 1 1/3′ Quint Bass as a mini-Mixture to top off the ensemble. With an extra pipe in each full rank, the instrument has a full 54-note compass at both A=440 and 415.
With double-layer decorations, the inner layer can slide to close the openings and reduce the brightness of the instrument in a small performance space.
