"Turning to the other question: anyone who transposes pipes can be in trouble unless they've obtained permission first. However, providing that the octave or so of pipes that are not now in use are carefully stored within the organ, this constitutes (to my mind) a minor intervention in the way that adding upperwork on a clamp is not."

 

 

"Yes - the pipes were stored with the instrument, and as it happened clearly everyone approved of the change. Sorry to distract the thread - intrigued at the comment about adding upper-work on a clamp - it's clearly an addition but if the upperwork is small scale enough, it wouldn't cause wind-robbing problems . . . so would not on first sight be to the detriment of the instrument . . . or would it?"

 

 

 

Anyone seeking to transpose pipes on an instrument in the Church of England would be well advised to obtain a faculty first. Work done without a faculty can bring severe financial consequences for those concerned.

Yes! Wise advice! But the organ in question lives to tell the tale and all the better for its journey up an octave. It was many years ago in quite a musical place . . .
