I have a Peter Collins organ: 8 8 4 2 over 2 man and ped. + 8 ped reed (1/8 length)- foolishly and against Peter's advice with a R&C pedal board (no one should use an R&C pedal board these days, particularly if you have a large shoe size! - makes life needlessly difficult).
Yamaha U3 piano, now carefully revoiced to get rid of brassy tenor and bass.
Guelph 1 manual American reed organ.
I have a severely shrinking repertoire - I mostly blame my organ shoes - but there must be something else...I use Dupre editions of Bach, Mendelsohn, Franck...I have a large number of CDs .. mostly avoiding English organs.. with a lot of St Sulpice. Karl Richter and his Munich Choir and Orchestra are also old favourites.
I don't play on Sundays for a variety of reasons.I used to play with a visiting choir and was lucky enough to play on a number of large instruments in the south. I only play for fun....Science pays the bills...
Live not far from Farnborough Abbey - the best small organ in Great Britain.
