Came across this by accident; anyone know what's going on?

 

It seems that the organ was removed in 2004 - see http://npor.emma.cam.ac.uk/cgi-bin/Rsearch...ec_index=N12404

 

The church website hasn't been updated to reflect this change - http://www.stgilesnorwich.org.uk/churchhistory.htm

Guest Psalm 78 v.67

I did hear a while back that they were going to install a redundant PO from (?) Highgate Hill..... ?

 

The arrangement shown in the photo does not tally with my recollection of the church in the late 70's; the organ was on the north side of the chancel (presumably the "organ space" mentioned in the photo album) and the sspec had been tinkered with (neo-baroqued) by, I think Ralph Bootman who I believe was organist at one time.) The photo looks like a temporary arrangement in the aisle......

 

Idiot. (Me that is)

 

Just looked again at NPOR http://npor.emma.cam.ac.uk/cgi-bin/Rsearch...ec_index=N12404 and read it properly this time!!

 

All is now clear.
