Grazeley Church is redundant, but as yet no home has been found for its Gern organ , which has an historic organ certificate.

 

The Diocesan authorities would be happy to see this instrument go to a good home. Please send me a personal email if you know of a suitable location.

I may know of a suitable home. My mum will phone you about the instrument.

Actually, she says that small an organ with pneumatic action really doesn't fulfil any of the needs of the establishment in question.

Thank you.

 

Herein lies the problem finding a home for an instrument with an HOC. Several people are interested, but all wish either to enlarge the organ and/or to change the action. No one wishes to take on the organ in its historic state and folk seem to be reluctant to change an organ with an HOC.

 

I fear it may be lost, because of the HOC, as referred to elswhere on this forum.

To resurrect a post from 2007 concerning the Gern organ previously located at Grazeley

http://npor.emma.cam.ac.uk/cgi-bin/Rsearch...ec_index=D02133 it is

currently being restored and installed in the RC church of St. Gregory the Great, Northampton.

 

The organ has been enlarged with a reed stop (trompette) based on one at Farnborough and

the action changed to electro-pneumatic from pneumatic, the original was tracker.

 

There is a series of pages with photos documenting the progress of this project, commencing

here:
