deadsheepstew Posted May 11, 2005 Share Posted May 11, 2005 Most people I have these conversations with think that New College is an utterly appalling musical instrument with little or no artistic value. This goes for players and builders. I, however, am completely in love with it, or at least the idea of it. I think it is a magnificently brave and thoughtful wake-up call to the organ world which is generally successful as long as you don't play Rheinberger or Howells on it. I keep hearing rumours that terrible things are to be done to it, that the temperament keeps changing, the None is going to turn into a Dulciana, and stuff like that. I was interested to see, in this atmosphere of organ reform and responsible restoration, what people would do to New College? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
