Season after Pentecost, 2023
The backside of Taylor & Boody, Op. 7

Here's the second installment in a new, potluck effort to record interesting organ stops.
Here's the same stop that I first mentioned in this post, but in a different context, and with a more representative recording (no key noise).
Featured stop: Dolce Principal 8'
Organ: Taylor and Boody, Op. 7 (1983), Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Richmond, Va.
"Adagio" from Trio Sonata No. 3 in E-Flat Major, BWV 525
J. S. Bach
Right hand: Dolce Principal 8' (Great)
Left hand: Rohrflöte 4' (Rückpositiv)
Pedal: Subbass 16' (Great coupled to pedal)
Recorded live from the south transept, 6 March 2011
I also heard an interesting story about this stop. Apparently Taylor & Boody had a good deal of trouble with it at first, and elected to use an existing salicional from the outgoing chancel organ of the church on a temporary basis. The story that I hear is that the stop was re-done at a later time resulting in the delightful timbre I've attempted to capture here.
If you have an idea for a stop you'd like the world to know about, or if you already have an audio sample ready to go, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
