  1. I must say that I preferred the HN&B console to the new Jones console. Interestingly when the restoration project first surfaced the work was supposed to be going to David Wells - this information was in the public domain. And then "mysteriously" went to Jones.
  2. Very sad news - I greatly enjoyed his contributions to this forum.
  3. Not at a recital, but one Sunday morning - just in the corner of my eye, I was aware of being watched. A mildly disconcerting feeling ! It transpired that "Frank" , a large greyhound, regularly attends church with his owners. His fascination with the organ, or perhaps my playing, quickly waned and he curled up behind the console and snoozed for the rest of the service.
  4. According to Facebook, Canterbury is to be 4 manual with 83 stops
  5. Thanks Dave - I was hoping to have have a quick play on the Sacred Heart organ way back in 86 when I was visiting the garden festival . Only made it as far as the Methodist Church across the road.
  6. Dave, is it the church that's just down the road from the Methodist Church ?
  7. Browne's are/were doing the work - lets hope that most of the organ was in their workshop
  8. I've been wondering about this project too.
  9. We had our grand fitted with a metal frame on wheels - easy to move. It was supplied by our piano tuners
  10. Regarding the coughing and clapping: the BBC did a first rate job in capturing the full majesty of my sneezing outburst during the first (UK?) performance of a work by Petr Eben at the RFH some years ago ! I wonder how it would sound with the revised acoustics ?
