New Cathedral Organ


Recommended Posts

You can still hear the 1861 G&D: it's at Usk and has been restored recently by Nicholsons...

Indeed - it looks to be a good restoration. Has anyone here heard it after the recent work? I note that Nicholsons have re-named some of the ranks, although I wonder about the Claribel Flute on the Choir Organ - a Clarionet Flute was also quite common in the work of Gray & Davison (c.f.: Milton Abbey). I further wonder whether the G.O. Mixture is still three ranks, or whether the fourth rank has been re-instated.

There is a good write up in the most recent edition of Organ Building.

The new Landaff spec. is shown in the latest Organists' Review (no time to quote here now but maybe later) - Solo that would make Arthur Harrison proud - romantic English style Swell and Great (2 Opens etc.) - middle of the road Choir - lots of wood in the lower regions and big pedal reeds etc. Also 3 stop West Great. Plenty of mixture work and mutations though. What does anyone who has seen it think? Is this the reform of the reform?

  • Divided each side of the choir - presumably electric/electro pneumatic action.
  • No Pipework from previous used - ' not sure about where the 'West' organ is going - ' nothing said about the pulpitum where the Positive currently resides.
  • Ready for Easter 2010

Is this post neo.... Pierre? - as far as one can tell anything from a stoplist that is. They have throw out all the old work - and wasn't there some Hope Jones in there somewhere too?

See for yourself.....If anything like that would have been proponed

15 years ago....

I fear there is not much left there from H-J, so, as I said, I won't

commence a Don Quichotte party with this one.

As far as Data is provided, it seems much of the material belongs

to the neo period. And this kind of material is not endangered -yet-.

So why not a new organ ?

The only thing I can think of remotely approaching (albeit relating to a generation behind and on mechanical action mostly) is this - I see what you mean!
