It's on R4 listen again, that's how I heard it Sunday afternoon. Beieve me, the cathedral Compton is NOT impressive! I've had to play it many times....

I played the Compton several times about 20 years ago - for what it was, it did a good job. Are there any plans to replace it (could St Peter's stand the competition?!) :)

I doubt if they could afford it as the cathedral does not attract a large congregation, being as you will know in awholly non-residential area. If they got some kind of large donation or a long-term fund raising scheme going they might be in with a chance. Marx and Spencer were once very keen to acquire the property and would have given St David's enough money to build a new cathedral and get a new organ but it seems that the cathedral is staying put for the time being.

 

St Peter's can stand anything! :D
