I was organist here over 30 years ago, when the church possessed a four manual Compton electronic, so it's fantastic to see that Lottery funding and a lot of hard work have brought pipes back to St Michael's 47 years after the original Hill was severely damaged by water. This is the third home for this instrument, and it should sound wonderful in the glorious acoustic of this church.




I understand from email conversations with Neil Page that the Pedal reed has been extended to 32' and a string stop added to the Solo organ. Other than the cathedral this will now be the largest instrument in the city by some margin. Some history and a few photos of the installation by Tim Trenchard can be found at the church blog, here -

This is indeed good news (although it does mean that Clayesmore is now stuck with a toaster - largely due to pressure on seating capacity in the chapel).

 

I taught regularly on this instrument in its former home (Clayesmore School) and thought that it was a reasonably good instrument - and fairly versatile. If skilfully voiced, no doubt the new additions will enhance the instrument. Given the size of Saint. Michael's, Mount Dinham, the 32ft. reed extension would probably not sound out of place. Out of interest, has Tim Trenchard also provided the 32ft. reed bass and the new string rank on the Solo Organ (which is, as far as I can recall, on an open soundboard)? If so, does anyone know if second-hand pipe-work was used (after adaptation, perhaps), or whether it was new? Thank you.

 

This is indeed a welcome addition to the list of playable pipe organs in this city. Exeter has a large number of comparatively small medieval churches (some constructed of very red sandstone), and a few rather utilitarian structures, which were put up after WWII, to replace those destroyed in the blitz. Virtually all of these churches have quite small instruments - although not all are without either merit or interest. After Mount Dinham, the next largest instrument is also housed in a church dedicated to Saint Michael and All Angels - that at Heavitree.* However, this is smaller by fifteen speaking stops.

 

 

*This is on the eastern side of the city centre and falls partly within the parliamentary boundary of the city, so I have included it here.

Almost, but in fact St David's, the parish church just round the corner from St Michael's Mount Dinham beats the Heavitree instrument by three stops (35), while the Mint Methodist church in Fore Street has two more speaking stops at 34. Mount Dinham will total 48 speaking stops with the new additions to the Clayesmore specification.

 

I will try to get some information on the pipework for the pedal reed extension and the solo string rank ( a Viola if I remember correctly ) at St Michael's.

I had forgotten Saint David's - with its fascinating Caröe church. However, the Mint Methodist Church (which I have also played for services, was shorn of its Pedal foundation stops when it was stuffed into a small chamber above the end wall. So it sounds smaller to my ears.

In the past 12 months Jonathan has given a solo recital at Mansion House on the new organ for Westminster Abbey for the Lord Mayor of London, given a European tour with trumpeter Håken Hardenberger, as well as presenting his second season of solo lunchtime organ concert series at The Bridgewater Hall. He has also appeared as harpsichord soloist in Poulenc's Concert Champêtre with The Orchestra of Opera North and piano soloist in Gershwin Piano Concerto with RPO.

Forthcoming performances include recitals across the UK as well an autumn Gershwin tour and solo performances on QM2.
In collaboration with his brother, Tom Scott, Jonathan has released several CDs to great critical acclaim on the Scott Brothers Duo label. Their discs have received wide international airplay as well as receiving their own special edition of ‘The Organist Entertains‘ on BBC Radio 2. Jonathan's latest solo CD celebrating the centenary of “The Organ of Rochdale Town Hall” was described as "superb" in Organists' Review.

Anne Page is known in the UK and abroad as a musician who combines virtuosity and
versatility. Born and educated in Perth, Australia, she moved to Europe to continue
advanced studies with Marie-Claire Alain, Peter Hurford and Jacques van Oortmerssen.
She made her London debut playing 20th century repertoire at the Royal Festival Hall.
Her career encompasses performances and broadcasts in Europe, the USA and Australia.
In the pioneering spirit of her country of origin she likes to explore some of the less well
trodden musical paths and has been one of a handful of musicians at the forefront of the
revival of the harmonium, making critically-acclaimed recordings and establishing a
course on the instrument at the Royal Academy of Music. In 2008 she was featured in a
Purcell Room recital for solo harmonium and the Swiss organist and composer Lionel
Rogg has written a suite of pieces for harmonium for her.
As a member of the British Institute of Organ Studies she took a leading role in the development of the
Historic Organ Sound Archive. This innovative scheme combined community education with a permanent
free online archive to increase access to our organ heritage. Anne researched and recorded 10 hours of
music for the project.
Now based in Cambridge, she directed the Cambridge Summer Recitals for eight years, presenting
many world and UK first performances and bringing several major recitalists from Europe to Britain
for the first time. During 2011/12 she performed the complete organ works of Bach in 23 recitals on
14 different organs in Cambridge. The series attracted capacity audiences and helped to support the
educational work of the Cambridge Academy of Organ Studies of which Anne is a founder.

Daniel Moult, “one of the finest organists of our time” (The Organ),

is renowned in the UK and abroad for virtuosic, intelligent and

engaging performances of repertoire from the 14th to the 21st

centuries. His musicianship has been praised as “exhilarating”

(Gramophone), “dazzling” (The Organ), and “formidable” (Organists’

Review). He has pioneered the use of film as a means of promoting

organ music, and has presented and performed in two DVD releases,

Virtuoso! Music for Organ, a film featuring some of the most

demanding 20th century repertoire, and The Elusive English Organ,

a journey through English organ music from 1550 to 1830. He is

currently preparing the sequel, The Imperial English Organ, which

will continue the story through the 19th and into the 20th century.

He has made several CDs, the most recent of which is the first solo

recording of the newly restored organ of Arundel Cathedral, to be

released by Regent Records in Spring 2014.

 

As a soloist, Daniel performs throughout the UK, Europe, Australia

and Singapore. Recent ensemble appearances include playing Mozart’s

organ music as part of the Mozart Unwrapped festival at King’s Place in

London, concerts celebrating Handel with the London Early Opera

Orchestra, and tours of France and Switzerland with Kammerorchester

Basel. In June 2014 he was the artist in residence at Sydney Grammar

School, performing Poulenc's organ concerto, and he will return to

Australia in 2015.

 

Born in Manchester, Daniel studied at Oxford (where he gained the

Fellowship diploma of the Royal College of Organists with three of

the top playing prizes and was jointly awarded the University of

Oxford John Betts Organ Scholarship) and the Amsterdam

Conservatorium. Previous posts include visiting organ tutor at

Chetham’s School of Music, Manchester, seven years as Organist

and Assistant Director of Music at Coventry Cathedral, and five

years as Artistic Director of The London Organ Day. He is a sought

after educator, and teaches through the RCO Organ School, on

many masterclasses, workshops and courses around the world,

as well as maintaining regular positions at the Birmingham

Conservatoire, Wells Cathedral School and The Royal College of

Music Junior Department. He examines for the Royal College of

Organists. He has published several editions, including the Easy

Thank you Paul for a brilliant recital. The choice of music showed off the new organ exceptionally well and demonstrated how easily it copes with a wide repertoire.

 

It was a pleasure to meet you and see some familiar faces amongst the audience.

The Norman & Beard organ of Colchester Moot Hall is in course of re-assembly after its restoration by Harrison & Harrison. There will be a number of events related to the organ, culminating in an opening Gala from May 21st, which includes a wide range of activities including (somewhat to my surprise) an Inaugural Recital by Yours Truly.

 

There is a new website http://moothallorgan.co.uk which is well worth a look.
