Guest Cynic Posted February 24, 2008 Share Posted February 24, 2008 I can't find the topic now, since we were clearly on a nice side-track at the time, but I am rushing to correct an(other) earlier mis-statement. Issuing forth a typical pontification as usual, I commented upon the Compton at St.George's Cathedral Southwark. I asserted that the Great and Choir shutters had been removed when the firm of Ellis Scothon carried out major improvement works upon the instrument. These shutters were out when I last played, but upon chatting tonight to the very organ-builder who did the work, I gather that they are back in now - albeit the openings have been cleared somewhat and the ratio of shutter-opening has also been improved. From now on, as if you were not all already doing so, please may I suggest that any statement I make now and in the future should be read as either In My Humble Opinion or correct to the best of my knowledge but with no other authority whatever? I would not deliberately post things I know to be untrue, I doubt if any of us would, but if I had to check up-to-date with some other authority any time anything came up on this board that I felt like commenting upon, I would be effectively struck dumb and my most valued link with the outside organ world would be lost to me. Otherwise I will vegetate even further beyond the reach of Civilisation here. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
