DouglasCorr Posted August 1, 2007 Share Posted August 1, 2007 Lady Susi Jeans had a small neo baroque organ in her study at Cleveland Lodge, Boxhill, that was installed in the 1930s. As a school boy I cheekily invited myself to see it on the pretext that it was only about 14 miles walk from our school's summer camp... She most kindly allowed my visit and showed me the organ (but didn't play it) and said I could play on the larger organ that belonged to Sir James in her concert room. Twenty or so years later I went to several of the Boxhill Festival meetings/concerts held at Cleveland Lodge - where her colleagues, students, and musicologist friends made interesting presentations and recitals. But the small organ was never played. I wondered if anyone ever head it and what it sounded like? Why wasn't it used? What has happened to it now? I understand that the RSCM is no longer at Cleveland Lodge, and the house is to be or is being converted for residential use. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
