I thought that members would like to know that Trevor Tipple, organ builder of Worcester, has retired and has passed his tuning list over to Nicholson's of Malvern.

 

Trevor and his colleagues have looked after my instrument and kept it going since at least 1993 and I shall miss speaking both to him and Hilary whilst of course wishing them a long and happy retirement.

Thanks for letting us know.  Coincidentally, our local Organists' Association visited an organ that he has recently rebuilt yesterday - an originally 3 rank Compton Miniatura which he has rebuilt with some minor tonal changes to the Great chorus, and the addition of an unenclosed Trumpet.  The instrument, at Bablake School, Coventry (not yet on NPOR) makes a fine sound in the school hall.  In contrast, our second visit, just down the road, was another Miniatura - this one an untouched 4 rank version.  Quite a contrast in sound, despite a basically similar stop list, but again a very good sound and and instrument that fills the church with sound when required, yet has some pleasant quiet sounds - and all from 4 ranks of pipes.

 

If the recordings are OK, I'll be posting some clips on You Tube in the next few days.
