  1. Did you get any pipework?
  2. I wonder if the Worcester scheme will ever be completed.
  3. Quite a lot of Vox Angelicas were really Salicionals, St Pauls Blackheath and St Mary Hurst Hill are examples. Barrie
  4. Yes, you are right Tony, I have only ever come across a couple of these devices. Barrie
  5. The funniest I have seen was a sign saying, "Beware crescendo pedal" !!!
  6. The only mention of an organ there is by Ebrall no mention of a Nicholson, but maybe this is an NPOR problem, to be honest I have stopped sending entries in as they never get added.
  7. An excellent selection David.
  8. Hi Katherine, Would it be at all possible for you to send me the specification of the organ and I will try and get it entered on NPOR? Best wishes, Barrie
  9. My general understanding is that the Bishop whose Cathedral it is has to ask the Dean for permission.
  10. I have the builders leaflet and the secondary Swell was inside the main Swell box.
  11. Yes, it would appear to be the case, Hexham Abbey had 5 manual departments, but I think the Echo was a floating division.
  12. I simply dislike digital additions they rarely blend well with the pipework.
  13. There is an article in Organists Review May 2010 about the organ, a lot of the pipework in the new organ is original.
  14. I cannot find the Tunstall organ on NPOR can anyone help? Best wishes Barrie
  15. The 2 manual console from Tewkesbury was used by Organ Tuning Services in their rebuild of the organ in St Edburgha Yardley Birmingham.
  16. It would be interesting to know what pipework is left in the case.
  17. I do hope the St Martins organ goes to a good home as it looks to be a very fine instrument. I stopped watching SOP ages ago as I felt it was going "off track".
  18. There are many Organ Builders listed that I have never heard of!!!
  19. Fiffaro, I've just looked and cannot see a link. I had no problem accessing the site.
  20. A very fitting tribute to a very fine craftsman.
  21. There is also all the pipework in the Transept case at Worcester, I am not sure if any of it will be used if, and when the organ is finally completed.
  22. The Geigen rank is really the old Salicional which was revoiced at the request of the Church.
