  1. Compass Of German Versus English Baroque Organs

    The Berry Pomeroy organ as it now stands is the result of a rebuild by H P Dicker in 1873-4. The rebuild cost £118 [Dicker's account book], and the rebuild is mentioned in passing in the Exeter Flying Post, 7 January 1874. There was an organ in the church from before 1862, which is when Dicker's account book begins to record tunings, and it was moved from one position to another in the church in 1862 [from a west gallery?]. I have no record as yet as to who built it originally, but I would guess not Walker unless it was installed second-hand
