  1. St John Bowling (Anglican church) had an Anneessens organ which was scrapped off maybe 20 years ago. At the time I was at St Wilfrid Lidget Green and we bought the pedal reed off them and installed it in that organ. As I recall the rest of the organ was scrapped. R
  2. Yes Peter I liked the bit about the 32' reed too - we'd all like one of those! But without knowing the internals of the cathedral organ, they do take up rather a lot of space! Some would say that organ needs a great 16' double first, the only manual double is a 16' quintaton on the choir. Shame about your lunch though... R
  3. Yes it was quite the highest attendance I've seen there at a recital for some time, and an excellent start to the Bradford Association's centenary year. And then this morning up here in the frozen north we woke up to some 3" of snow to negotiate - the 15 minute journey to Shipley took twice as long... R
