    St. Elizabeth, Wroclaw | Historical reconstruction

    Thanks, Dave. Yes, that is indeed very interesting. This one was about 20+ years later and 6 stops larger than Krzeszow (formerly Grüßau in German), but has lots of similarities.

    St. Elizabeth, Wroclaw | Historical reconstruction

    Without ploughing through all the Polish-language documents, is there a stoplist anywhere online for this? How might it compare with this other Engler organ? http://www.sonusparadisi.cz/en/organs/germany/krzeszow-poland.html

    From Rochester Cathedral's website today: https://www.rochestercathedral.org/job-vacancy-input/2018/5/24/assistant-director-of-music-and-sub-organist
  8. Yes, I saw that. They had been talking for 2-3 years about getting a temporary "virtual organ" solution, but that conversation had gone quietly recently, and they obviously decided to go down a different route.

    32' stops in Africa

    See my post above (25 Jan). Apparently one will soon be able to play this one at home using a software program.

    Piston spacing

    A couple of quick questions for the experts: Is there a standard, or recommended, spacing distance between thumb pistons? And should divisional pistons be placed centrally (i.e. should pistons 1 and 8 be equidistant from the left and right-hand ends of the keyboard)? If you wanted extra thumb pistons for "Appel Anches" ventils (Ped, GO, Pos, Rec), where would you put them? Thanks in advance for advice.

    Pershore Abbey

    Anybody who knows better please correct me if I'm mistaken, but I believe Carlo's former organ (or one of them) is now at Sutton Valence School in Kent.

  15. It's not even 30 years old, but seems to be redundant. https://www.pipeorgans.eu/en/pipeorgans/Kleuker-Steinmeyer-68-IV-P
