gazman Posted September 7, 2007 Share Posted September 7, 2007 I've recently been reading through a lot of old organ magazines, and have been reminded of the number of rebuildings of prestigious organs during the last century where these two gentlemen were appointed as consultants. I wonder why these two were invited to be advisers for these rebuildings. Were reputable organ building firms, and some of the best organists of their time, (both, of course, professionals and very much at the top of their game) really unable to see an organ rebuilding to a satisfactory conclusion without the help of these amateur "self-appointed experts"? How much influence did Dixon and Clutton actually have upon these instruments, or on organ building as a whole? Was their influence good, or harmful? Was their contribution even necessary?
