  1. The brustwerk of the Rieger in Clifton Cathedral has glass doors, and the Copley organ in St Mary Magdalen in Oxford has manually operated glass shutters to the Great, and the Swell has glass shutters to the North and South sides.
  2. I remember pictures of the bottom CCC 32' Open Flute arriving at Symphony Hall in Birmingham arriving on a canal boat at Brindley Place when the Klais organ was installed.
  3. The new plan for the organ by Nicholson's at Radley College Chapel sounds impressive! http://www.nicholsonorgans.co.uk/pf/radley/
  4. Such a sad loss indeed. David was so very helpful to me in finding obscure organ music and sharing his interpretations of pieces. A man of many talents and much knowledge who will be greatly missed. I send my love to all his family and friends.
  5. I don't think this is totally without merit to be honest, as one of the meanings of gedecht translates as 'thought'!
  6. There's a beautiful little classical case in St John's Church in Lancaster. It had pedal towers added by Ainscough in the 30's but thankfully this was remedied back in the 70's http://npor.org.uk/NPORView.html?RI=R01971 http://npor.org.uk/NPORView.html?RI=N01664
  7. I don't think Carlo Curley's touring Allen got installed - I believe a Bradford Computing organ was the instrument of choice after the old Nicholson/Walker was scrapped.
  8. I like the look of it - wonder if they will find somewhere to put a chamade reed?
  9. Looks like Fratelli Ruffati are getting a toe hold in the UK now - I see Pershore Abbey are commissioning them to build a new three manual organ to the tune of £850,000. A meeting on the 27th will be held to decide on how it will be funded, as well as details of the specification etc
  10. There's nothing on the AHORP website which I find surprising. I'd have thought something of this importance would have been made public through that, never mind word of mouth. Lancaster may be a city but word gets around pretty quickly! Maybe I've just not been paying attention lately!
  11. Quite a pair of shoes to fill! Good luck & God's blessing to him. Peter King has left a wonderful legacy which I hope will continue onwards & upwards under Huw's guidance.
  12. Does anyone know what the state of play is regarding the organ here? There's nothing on the website to say anything apart from they have a toaster acting as the main instrument for services and recitals
