The Collins Organ At Addington Palace

The thread about the Eule organ at Cleveland Lodge made me wonder about the Peter Collins organ at Addington Palace. I remember playing the Leighton Paean to Nicholas Cleobury on it when I was about 16 and the next few years of my life probably turned out the way they did as a result. NPOR merely states "tranferred elsewhere".

 

Any ideas?

I think it ended up in Salisbury Cathedral Song School, having been at Portsmouth Grammar School for a while.

 

What happened to the HNB Chester organ? It was put up for sale at one time.

It was purchased a couple of years ago by Philip Smith, Organist of St. Peter's, Ruthin as a stop-gap and until we make his new three-manual house organ in about three years time.

Hi Barry

 

If you have any evidence for this, (or a quotable info source) please let NPOR know and we will update the records. The same goes for the HNB "Chester" organ.

 

Every Blessing

I have received official confirmation (from the RSCM) that the Collins organ is in Salisbury Cathedral Choir School. This information may be put on NPOR.
