General view of the two organs: the first in Cornu Epistolae, the second in Cornu Evangelii

The organs of the Basilica of St. Alexander in Column in Bergamo were built by Giuseppe Serassi  II in 1781.

They are the greatest  and the most important  instruments  made by this famous  dynasty of italian organ builders.

Serassi's factory, active in Bergamo from 1720 to 1895, built around a thousand organs throughout Italy, many of them still functioning and appreciated for the accuracy of the construction and for the beauty and nobility of sound.

The exceptionality of these organs lies not only in its grandeur and in its magnificent eighteenth-century sounds,  but also in the unique mechanical system of underground transmission with a lenght of 33 meters.  This system connects two opposing instruments, one placed on the right side or "in Cornu Epistolae", the other on the left or "in Cornu Evangelii".

It is based on the motion of the pendulum, already studied by Galileo Galilei and observed by Giuseppe Serassi in Santa Maria Maggiore in Bergamo, following the fluctuation of a lantern during a service.

The young Serassi, thirty-one at the time, realized immediately in those circumstances the possibility of linking  two opposite organs controlled by a single organist and he realized the work.

This mechanical system is described by Professor Giosuè Berbenni in the book "Historical Organs of the Province of Bergamo": "from the 54 keys of the first keyboard  placed in Cornu Epistolae,  from the 12 pedal keys and from the  14 registers  commands  leave 80 tie rods.  These tie rods descend under the floor of the presbytery; here, with a 7-shaped angled lever are linked to other rods through the underground walk and are arranged on three different levels: (from the top) the ties of keys, pedals and registers. These rods are suspended on many pendulums that lighten the weight, they win the resistances of traction and are connected by the same 7 to form angled lever with the other  organ in Cornu Evangelii ".

As  Giuseppe Serassi wrote in his letters, the realization of this invention at the time had a resonance that even the Austrian Emperor Ferdinand I sent the "highly intelligent characters which examinated the underground mechanics, speaking with the author that His Majesty would have been satisfied if he could be present. "Always Serassi, also jokingly, told that the venetian organ builder Gaetano Callido, his rival in the art of organ building, was willing to be cut off the head on the success of this work. The same Serassi later told:

 "do not fail to let him know to prepare his head because the system is perfectly working. "

Due to the exceptionality of this invention, in 1784 the Senate of the Venetian Republic granted to Serassi company of Bergamo the exemption from duties for fifteen years.

The underground mechanics  was the subject over the centuries of different maintenance and modification by the same Serassi in 1807 and in 1844, by Giovanni Giudici, a student of Serassi in 1855 and by  Adeodato Bossi Urbani in 1887.

The underground mechanics, restored by Tamburini of Crema in 1970 has unfortunately remained unused for about thirty years, following the application in the eighties of the twentieth century of a robot, or a box with "fingers wooden" placed on the keyboards mechanical and activated by a modern electric console placed in chorus.

In August 2010, the electrical transmission system  has been removed and  the mechanical  console in Cornu Epistolae has been restored.

From the feast of the Assumption of 2010 the instrument is played back from the console in Cornu Epistolae and has regained its original mechanical appearance, with a significant improvement in sound performance and intonation.

Now the organs need a  restoration.  The restoration will start in autumn 2017.

The underground mechanics: down on the thrusts of keys, pedals and registers

TECHNICAL  DATA

Two opposing organs connected by a mechanical system of underground suspended pendulums under the presbytery. In Cornu Epistolae they are placed the Great Organ, the Organ Eco and the respective pedal section, in Cornu Evangelii the Third Organ or Contr'organo and the respective pedal section.

Mechanical console in Cornu Epistolae with three keyboards of 62 keys with short contr'ottava (DO-1-FA5). The lower keyboard controls the third organ, the central the echo organ and the upper one the great organ. Bass / treble division between SI2 and C3.

Pedalboard of 27 notes (C1-RE3) flat, parallel, with chromatic first octave. The first twelve notes are repeated on the higher octave, except for the Bombarde register of the pedal that is real until SI2. The last three notes of the pedal keys (C3-RE3) only work with the union of the manual.

Commands of the stops:

-on two ranks in the right of the console for the great organ;

-on two ranks in the left of the console: one for the echo organ, the other for the third organ in Cornu Evangelii.

In the left there are two great pedals: one for the Ripieno, the other for the free combination of the third organ.

Above the pedalboard there are nine little pedals (from left to right): Trumpet third organ; half Ripieno third organ; Ripieno echo; Violoncello echo organ; Union great organ at the pedal; Union organ echo at the great organ; Union great organ at the third organ; Half Ripieno great organ; Reeds great organ;

In the right there are two great pedals:  one for the free combination and the other for the Ripieno of the great organ.

Equal temperament led to a chorister with declining slightly (LA 3: about 438 HZ).

SANTA MARIA MADDALENA, ROME

S. Maria Maddalena has perhaps the most imposing and rich combination of organ and cantoria. The design is very complex and for sure it was developed by one of the several architects who worked at this church. We know that it took more than 50 years (1706-58) to complete it. Johannes Conradus Werle (German) organ, 1736-40, a very impressive theatrical case.

ST. PETER'S BASILICA, ROME

THE GRAND ORGAN St. Peter's Basilica, Rome Ditta Giovanni Tamburini, 1954 e 1962


 The instrument is housed in two identical cases between the front-most large columns holding up the great dome and the Altar of the Chair of Peter.  The 4-manual console is located in front of the north case, with the organist's back to the case, facing south.  The choir stalls where the Sistine Chapel Choir and Schola (and guest choirs) sing is located between the organist's back and the front pipe facade in that north case.  There is also a mobile three manual console connected to the pipes via a coaxial cable that can be moved all over the main floor of the basilica with contact plugs in numerous locations.
