    • Only if you were alive 1979-82. MM  
    • Indeed, but such use requires careful registration. It is an organ which can whisper or roar.....and boy, can it  roar!
    • I firmly believe that after the organ is fully restored it will be more than a treat. Apart from Hull citizens, few have heard the Minster organ as it has never been commercially recorded in either vinyl or CD format. I hope that will be rectified eventually. And given the promising new acoustic it could eclipse the City Hall. Living as I now do some 130 miles away from Hull, attending recitals there is, sadly, hardly a practical consideration. Many years ago I quite regularly attended first-class recitals given by Peter Goodman, then City Organist. But I suppose the most memorable of them all was the 1951 opening recital given by Norman Strafford and Fernando Germani.  
    • Barry:  I’m only four years behind you, but I have visited the Minster when some of the re-ordering was in progress.  I haven’t heard the organ but noted that it is laid out very generously and, of course, had a close look at the console.  MM mentioned Southampton Guildhall (which I have played in a very small way on a private visit) and that also has the Compton illuminated touch stops.  Actually it’s another very fine instrument, although not really the subject here. As you doubtless know, Hull City Hall has been in the hands of the builders, but recitals there are now resuming on Wednesday 2nd October (Philip Rushforth from Chester Cathedral), and then on the first Wednesday of every month at 12.30 pm.  For the benefit of others, they last a full one-hour and the bargain price is £4.50 including a printed programme.
