handsoff Posted March 10, 2008 Share Posted March 10, 2008 I went to the lunchtime concert in Birmingham today. The organ scholar, a charming young lady who acts as page turner for the concerts, was just outside the doors of the hall with a 3 stop (Stopped Diapason, Open Diapason and Trumpet), 5 note (C to E) hand-blown tracker organ in a glass case. All the "works" were visible and visitors were invited to have a go. What a great idea - to give everyone the chance to see how a tracker organ works and to see and hear what sound comes from the various, nicely-voiced pipes. Well, not see the sound, but you know what I mean! Peter PS Sorry if this is old news, but I hadn't seen it before. PPS The concert was superb - plenty of opportunities to hear the many colours of this wonderful instrument. And the chamades..... http://www.thsh.co.uk/view/lunchtime-organ...homas-trotter-7 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
