    • Anne Page is to give a recital to mark the rededication, following restoration by Richard Bower, of the GM Holdich organ at St. margaret's Church, Upton (nr. Acle), Norfolk. The oncert, according to the link below, is to be on Saturday 30th September starting at 7:30pm. http://www.greatyarmouthmercury.co.uk/news/joy-as-150-year-old-holdich-organ-is-returned-to-norfolk-church-following-82-000-restoration-project-1-5203269 http://uptonholdichorgan.org.uk/ Dave
    • Saturday October 7th at 5pm.   The 3rd Anniversary Recital  marking the installation of the PPO organ in the Guild Chapel, Stratford-upon-Avon  is being given by Roy Massey, Organist Emeritus, Hereford Cathedral. I don't know the programme at the moment but can imagine that it will be very, very good!   Note the early start time - very welcome to me at least as 7pm or later on a Saturday just doesn't work...    
    • 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.
