nfortin Posted April 11, 2007 Share Posted April 11, 2007 Further to David Coram's ongoing thread re. a possible Oxford trip, I would be prepared to put together a day in my home town of Cheltenham if there was sufficient interest. With no guarantees at this stage as to which venues would agree to a visit, there are a number of interesting organs in the town including:- 4M Hill in All Saints', known locally as "The Holst Church" 4M Hunter in Christchurch 3M Rushworth & D. in the Town Hall 3M Tickell in the Ladies' College 3M H&H in Cheltenham College 2M Blank (I think - Cynic will correct if necessary!) in St. Gregory's RC.) I'd also ask anyone attending to be at least prepared to hear the Wyvern toaster in my own church of St. Mary's, Charlton Kings. If you're happy not to compare it with a top-quality pipe organ, but judge it for what it is, I think you'll be impressed. It might be possible to include (the 4m Jones-Walker-Willis-everyone and his dog but very fine) organ in Tewkesbury Abbey too. Anyone interested?
