A container is, e'en now, on its way Devonwards - according to Ruffati’s FacadeBook.


I believe the Abbey Organ’s webpage was 'taken down' and only (very) recently restored - in a revised version: www.buckfast.org.uk/ruffattiorgan.


The installation, for example, will now be "completed before 2018." There are other re-wordings and corrections. I can only assume this explains the temporary absence of the page. 


I emailed the builders, only to be informed that all communications regarding the organ are being handled exclusively by the Abbey.


I would imagine that, once the container arrives, there will be a flurry of new and exciting photos.

Slightly embarrassing: I'm unable to locate the specification.


The links I've previously used no longer work.


Could anyone furnish one that does, or post the spec. here, please ?


Many thanks.

Thank you, sjf1967. I’d assumed it was more Cromorne-esque, to complement the mainly French Baroque/Classical specification. Especially since there’s a Voix Humaine on the Positif.


And, I’ve just noticed by zooming: is there some kind of swelling device on the right hand side, above the pedal-board ?

sjf1967: I have two questions, which do not ask you to divulge ‘sensitive’ info.


What does the Dulcineau sound like ? Do you know if there are any plans to release recordings of this wonderful looker – even if just on YouTube ?


This must be one of the largest organs built for private clients in recent years. I am sure members will be able to expand on this.
