What future for the English organ? in General discussion Posted January 2 · Report reply If there were a culture in this country that valued the organ, the demise of Christianity would not be an issue. It is worth comparing the situation here with that in the Netherlands. In an increasingly secular society many churches have closed, but the organs (often of huge historical significance) remain in use. The number of organ recitals that take place seems staggering, and they are by and large very well supported. It seems unlikely to me that the Dutch organ building industry will die out any time soon.
