  1. Am I the only person who thought the service of the blessing of the Minster organ this morning was a big non event? I understand the service was choral eucharist, but after all the hype and press gone into such a major event, it was so low key. I appreciate the thanks given by the clergy during the service, but we never heard the voice of the very thing thanks was being given about.
  2. I was always led to believe that "bang and twang" was what some people call country and western music!
  3. Just watched the Southwell Minster Carol service online - and wonderful it was! I was wondering why the screen organ has been wrapped in plastic? I can't find any mention of building work happening in the church on their website or anywhere else - mind you, that could be because I'm a Luddite...
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. The new plan for the organ by Nicholson's at Radley College Chapel sounds impressive! http://www.nicholsonorgans.co.uk/pf/radley/
  7. 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.
  8. I don't think this is totally without merit to be honest, as one of the meanings of gedecht translates as 'thought'!
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. I like the look of it - wonder if they will find somewhere to put a chamade reed?
  12. 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
