Prompted by the discussion of the 1980 HNB at Radley College I discovered the spec. of the 1842 instrument here (NPOR).

 

This seems to me quite an unusual stoplist for a British (ok, UK) organ at this time with, for example, a Tenth (Gross Tierce pitch) and a Quint (5 1/3') on the Great but no Great string stop and no flutes on the Pedal.

 

Was it part of a tradition or a bold step into some sort of continental style, following Mendelssohn's visit? What music would have been played on it in the 1840s at Radley?

 

Would I be better off reading Stephen Bicknell's book before posting these questions here?
