innate Posted May 28, 2007 Share Posted May 28, 2007 ================================In the "modular" organ stakes, John Compton was light-years ahead of his competitors, and the quality second to none. You write as though there was something worthwhile about the idea of the modular organ. But if it weren't for the "developments" of particularly H-J and JC there wouldn't have been such a fertile ground for the ideas of organ-reform to be planted. If British organ builders had carried on building Hills and Bevingtons and Lewises and Father Willises we have have had organs with integrity that the generation above me would have been satisfied with in the 1950s and 60s. The rot set in with the engineers. IMHO. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
