St. Michael's church, Highworth. in General discussion Posted August 14 1 hour ago, Rowland Wateridge said: we have as yet no idea how the new ‘combination organ’ sounds. The Chancellor approved the scheme in the expectation of “a new first class organ” being installed. Also, in fairness, the reordering of St Michael’s was to permit other community use, something which will become more and more common for some churches to remain viable. Not sure about the 'combination organ'. From the church website: "The nineteenth century organ was in a poor playing state with an inherently heavy playing action and occupied most of the north transept; it has been replaced with a modern digital instrument which is moveable. The transept is now a new, fully equipped commercial kitchen, whilst the earlier kitchen is a utility room. The Cullerne Room, that had previously been adapted from a chapel, was further changed to create a vestry and storage areas together with a meeting room on a new first floor."
