DHM Posted July 8, 2007 Share Posted July 8, 2007 Recent discussions about these builders (under the thread on "Dulciana Mixtures") has revealed some interesting connections between them, of which I was previously unaware, and raised some interesting questions for Hauptwerkians. Anyone who uses Hauptwerk will have initmate knowledge of the organ of St Anne's, Moseley, described as "Brindley & Foster, 1907", but it would now appear that that description is an over-simplification. The specifications as given on NPOR and on the church's own website give rise to some confusion: http://npor.emma.cam.ac.uk/cgi-bin/Rsearch...ec_index=N00645 http://www.st-annes-moseley.org.uk/organ.html http://www.st-annes-moseley.org.uk/organspec.html. The former (survey date 1984) mentions pipework by "Shultz" (sic) and "Lewis". The latter mentions an earlier organ by "J.C. (sic) Lewis of Brixton, London" whose pipework was included in the 1907 instrument, and also allegedly includes pipework by "Schultz" (sic). There were further improvements and additions by Nicholsons in 1984 and 1990 (NPOR needs updating - Tony?). Are "Shultz" and "Schultz" misprints, and is this really the Schulze of Armley/Doncaster fame? Is "JC Lewis" a misprint for the famous TC? Douglas [Enjoying a Sunday morning off - as all our roads are closed for the Tour de France and we can't go anywhere - but unable to explore the mysteries of Moseley any further, since the HW organ is out on hire to a local choral society.] Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
