Colin Harvey Posted August 22, 2005 Share Posted August 22, 2005 Dear members, I spent a weekend playing for services at Sheffield Cathedral. It has an old Mander organ built in the 1960s. It was pensioned off in the late 90s (is now unplayable) and an electronic took over the mantle as a tempory solution. So what do you think is the ideal organ solution at Sheffield? What would you do if you were building a new organ there? Where would you put it - the choir is very dedicated and plays a very important part of the church. It needs to accompany the congregation in the nave effectively. And off to the sides are some very large side chapels, about 2/3 the size of the nave - should the organ be capable of supporting services there? What size and style shoudl the organ be? So, let's play armchair organ designers and let's see what happens... I'll add my own thoughts for what they're worth at some stage. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
