pcnd5584 Posted May 12, 2005 Share Posted May 12, 2005 Hanover Square is a slightly unusual organ (for a H&H). Admittedly I have not played it for several years, but whed I did, it sounded rather thin and under-powered (from the console, at any rate). Whilst it may sound different from the main axis of the building, it was somewhat unsatisfactory from the console. I do not remember anything objectionable in the tonality of the Choir Organ ranks. If I remember correctly, there is also a Positive Organ, playable from the lowest manual. Up until several years ago, there was an untouched H-J in Pilton Church, North Devon - not that far from Barnstaple. It has now been restored, with several tonal changes and additions - including some upperwork. I played it in its un-restored state and am slightly embarrassed to say that I actually quite liked it! However, I suspect that I would have become bored without some upperwork after a while. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
