  1. We're starting to sing on Sunday, but it's only going to be the last hymn. The risk averse will be given the option to leave before it's sung .
  2. As injections are involved, perhaps some variations on "A Whiter Shade of Pale" might be appropriate.
  3. No plans at all. Our circuit is closed until 17 Jan 2021.
  4. Perhaps this is taking things to extremes, but the organ at Tunstall Methodist Church is hidden behind curtains and a breeze block wall. There is a small gap at the top of the wall and spaces at each end of the wall for sound to escape. It's a long time since I played this organ, but I do recall it sounding remarkably good. Hopefully I've attached a picture found on line.... https://www.npor.org.uk/NPORView.html?RI=G01250
  5. 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.
  6. Very sad news - I greatly enjoyed his contributions to this forum.
  7. 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.
  8. According to Facebook, Canterbury is to be 4 manual with 83 stops
  9. 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.
