    1. Welcome to the Mander Organ Builders Forum


      Updated 27th August 2020

      F H Browne & Sons ltd is delighted to announce that it has acquired the trading name and intellectual property rights of Mander Organs Ltd. From 1st October 2020 F H Browne (Organ Builders) Ltd will revert to trading under the name Mander Organ Builders for all current and future contracts.
      Both companies are based in South East England, and three of the current FHB employees (including myself) are former employees of Mander Organs, so there are immediate synergies.

      We are delighted to have made this transition and look forward to working with our present and future customers both in the UK and Internationally.

      It is also confirmed that his forum will continue as it is now.

      Stephen Bayley
      Managing Director

    • Living where I do the Anglican choral tradition is a distant memory but I, quite often, on a Sunday afternoon/evening, listen to Mass or Choral Evensong from one of the English Cathedrals. I have to say that that I have heard some absolutely excellent performances and also some completely dismal ones - in equal measure! I do wonder if the English Choral tradition is always as safe as we, sometimes rather smugly, like to think it is.
    • Delighted at this revival. Thank you, Martin, for bringing it about.
    • This has been mentioned on an earlier thread (which I can’t immediately locate), but the answer as I remember was Hereford and a comment that there couldn’t be a better choice. 
    • Perhaps a little off topic, but I attended evensong in Gloucester Cathedral yesterday evening. The least said about the (girls) choir the best (unbelievably bad) but the hauptwerk organ sounded absolutely fabulous. Obviously the unique Gloucester acoustic helps. What is the sample set?
