Tony Price Posted August 15, 2008 Share Posted August 15, 2008 When I was at college (St. Mary's, Strawberry Hill, between 1972 and 1975) a young and apparently upcoming Stephen Hicks was then, to my mind, well known in the organ world. I recall him borrowing my copy of the Bach 'St. Anne' and giving a excellent rendition of it at no notice to fill for somone else at a concert in the college chapel (a small 'cathedral'!). Whatever happened to him - or was he not as well known at the time as I recall? The instrument at St. Mary's was believed at the time to be the very last built by Kingsgate Davidson, and, allegedly, used up much of the remaining pipe-work they had in their workshops at the time. Can anyone substantiate this? http://npor.emma.cam.ac.uk/cgi-bin/Rsearch.cgi?Fn=Rsearch&rec_index=N15874 I seem to recall a single rank running 16', 8', 4', 2' and 1' on the Positive.
