Mander Organs

Recommended Posts

Any info about the new organ? I remember the previous one when it was new - an extension job by Ralph Arnold (they had a 4 manual pipe organ in Sevenoaks parish church in those days, too!).

The new organ is a combination organ by MPOS Ltd. Info on their website and also on the church website. Hoping to try it for myself soon.

Dr David Pitches plays the 1854 Sprague at Hammerwood Park near East Grinstead this afternoon at 4pm (20 July):

 

Stanley (1712 - 1786) Voluntary no. 9 in G
Sweelinck (1562 - 1621) Mein junges Leben hat ein End
Zipoli (1688 - 1726) Elevazione in C

The organ is a one manual instrument, likely the only Sprague still in existence. It was built in 1854 but designed as a much older instrument and features much older pipework. The specification is Open Diapason / Stopped Diapason / Principal / Fifteenth:

This recital forms the first half of today's concert. In contrast the second half features the singer-songwriter and expert guitarist Bella Farny (outdoors, if the weather holds up!).

St Francis' Church, Prince Charles Avenue, Mackworth, Derby, DE22 4FN

Saturday, September 28, 2013

7:30 pm

 

Organ Dedication

 

Programme to include music by:

 

Sweelinck, Bach, Haslam, Brahms, Stanley, Messiaen, Karg-Elert

 

Organist: Michael Haslam

 

 

THE ORGAN

The first organ to be installed in St. Francis’ was a redundant instrument obtained from a church in Norwich in 1957. Although bearing the label of Norman & Beard Ltd. (of Norwich) and the date 1912, it was found on dismantling to have been based on earlier material, which to some extent accounted for the poor condition in recent times. Its small size (3 Great, 4 Swell, 1 Pedal) may have been just about sufficient in St Francis’ as first built, but in the enlarged church it was quite inadequate.

The replacement organ was obtained in 2011 from Monyash Methodist Church, to which it had been moved 40 years earlier from its previous home at Darlaston Green, near Walsall. Though not carrying any builder’s label, it is without doubt a product of Nicholson & Lord (of Walsall). Its construction clearly indicates that it was begun as a 1-manual, with the Swell added on behind at a very early stage, perhaps even before it left the factory. The serial number 422, marked on pipework of both manuals, is consistent with the date 1884 found on the centre display pipe.

As built there were two “prepared” stops on the Great and one on the Swell; by the time the organ reached Monyash pipework had been supplied to all except the 2’ stop on the Great; other alterations made over the years included conversion of the Pedal to pneumatic action, reconstruction of the console, provision of a balanced swell and removal of the hand blowing apparatus.

In the programme of work completed at Easter 2013 the working parts of the organ have been fully restored, and the console returned to its original format (apart from the balanced swell pedal, which has been reworked). The three originally prepared slides are all now occupied by upperwork (previously entirely absent).

Several years ago, when Justason was Justoutofnappies, he was asked to dep for a depping choir at Kingston Parish Church for a service of Evensong. Justamum and I turned up with Justason on the preceding Saturday so he could familiarise himself with the Frobenius, only to find someone sat on the bench doing their stuff. I hesitantly explained that Justason had to prepare for a service the next day, and the gentleman kindly removed himself. Some weeks later I learned that the kind gentleman was, indeed, Christopher Herrick: a gentleman indeed, and a very fine organist.

I don't know what the programme is but I hope you'll consider joining Justamum and I on Wednesday.

Best wishes

Tom Bell enjoys a varied freelance solo career as an organist, based in London

and active across the UK. He has played additionally in mainland Europe and the

USA, undertaking two tours to the latter encompassing the East Coast and Mid West

in 2013. Tom's debut CD, featuring music by Bliss, Elgar and Malcolm Williamson

recently was released on the Regent label, and was described by one reviewer as

"...a marvellous recording, full of light, from a charismatic and virtuosic musician"

(Organists' Review). His performance on the same disc of Williamson's unjustly

neglected Symphony for Organ was described in American Record Guide as

"brilliant". Tom's playing has been heard on the radio in the UK, Europe and the

United States, including (from the Temple Church in London) a live solo recital on

Dutch Radio 4 as part of their Handel Day, 2009. Highlights in 2014 include the

release of a double CD of contemporary music, the formation of a duo with organist

Richard Brasier, and his debut at the Royal Festival Hall, London as a featured artist

in the Pull Out All The Stops festival. Tom will give two concerts at the RFH, both to

be broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and featuring first performances of works by Neil

Hannon and Shlomo.
Tom teaches in a freelance capacity for the Royal College of Organists, and also
on courses run by the Royal School of Church Music and Oundle for Organists,
for whom he will direct a course in 2014. He is organ tutor both at Sevenoaks
School and the Royal Hospital School in Suffolk, and regularly gives masterclasses
(recently Birmingham Conservatoire and the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia). A
passion for education and outreach has led to involvement with many different
schemes, and he is organist to the long-running Organworks project, based at
Eton. Tom is Artistic Director to the London Organ Day, a trustee of the ON Organ
Fund, and serves as Organist and Choir Master at St Michael's Church, Chester
Square in central London. He also writes occasionally, and his work has been
published in BBC Music Magazine, Organists' Review and others.

Tom studied at the Royal Northern College of Music with Kevin Bowyer, also
travelling to Amsterdam to see Jacques van Oortmerssen on an occasional basis.
His repertoire is broad but he harbours a particular love of new music, something
which has led him to premiere many pieces in the last few years. Besides tea
drinking he likes fell walking, good beer and (most of all) steam locomotives.

famous Father Willis organ.
He grew-up in Gloucester and became the Cathedral Organ Scholar aged 17,

Mary's Singers and Orchestra with whom he has programmed a diverse
repertoire of works from Stravinsky's Dumbarton Oaks to Copland's Old
American Songs. The choir recently performed Bach's St Matthew Passion in
a liturgical context.
He works regularly as organ and piano accompanist, most recently with Julia
Hwang (BBC4 Lark Ascending) and Grace Davidson (in Handel's Gloria). Luke
is collaborating with the trumpeter Ross Brown in a programme of new trumpet
and organ transcriptions for publication and recording on the Regent Label,
with whom he made a solo organ disc last year which has received numerous
five star reviews.
Luke has given first performances of works by numerous composers, most recently
works by David Bednall and Paul Drayton. Luke recently accompanied the first
broadcast of Julian Philips' anthem Church Music (from Choirbook for the Queen).
His freelance work takes him out of Truro and often includes being Organist on the
