8'+ 4' Trompette en Chamade...155 viewsOr should I say Basson en Chamade. This is the Trompette en Chamade of Wicks Opus 5431. It started out life 35 years ago as a customary "French" style Chamade on the church's 1973 Wicks, and It was INCREDIBLY loud and raucous. I have even heard it's timbre described as if it were "Peeing all over the ceiling". But in 2003 The Organ was restored and brought to up to date (Wicks also added 5 more ranks of pipes.) The Trompette en Chamade was given much more cohesive English-style Shallots-but you simply cannot add English Shalllots to a small-scaled French Trumpet and still call it a essentially it is an 8' Basson en Chamade, or with better nomenclature-an 8' Festival Fagotto!

See if you can find where the sad lttle Cymbelstern is behind the left panel of the service door.
