    • Greetings folks, this is my very first post as a new member.

      Lewis At St. Alban Teddington - Pre Vandal Destruction Do members have any first-hand experience of this sad instrument, please?

      I played it just once in 1963 but can't recall the experience except to say that I remember there wasn't a case, so building frame, chests and pipework were laid bare.

      Furthermore, I recall bee's buzzing around the console, because they had made nests in the bricked-up unfinished west wall. The Willis 3 console - if my memory serves me well - occupied a space in the western-end of the south nave aisle. The instrument was located in the eastern end of the north nave aisle. So presumably was moved from its pre-war north chancel position, perhaps post WWW2.
      Overall though, a sense of being unloved and unfinished of church building and organ was felt.

      Please share your memories.

       
    • An unexpected move in the right direction from the BBC!
    • Indeed it is, but then Passau is 5 organs (main, north aisle, south aisle, choir and echo in the loft!) and it manages with (only) 5 manuals! My design for a hypothetical organ consists of two organs, each with 6 manual divisions and having only 4 manuals! Incidentally, I often find such translations a little amusing.  In this case (Waldsassen) Holzregal 16' is translated into Wooden Shelf 16'!
