DaveHarries Posted June 5, 2009 Share Posted June 5, 2009 Hi all, While my Dad was at an occasion in the grounds of Clifton College this evening, I took the opportunity to slip into the school Chapel which was open and which I had not set foot in since 1995. I wanted to photo the organ there (Harriston & Harrison, 1911 / 1994 - http://churchorgans.fotopic.net/p58747674.html) which I used to have lessons on when at Clifton College Preparatory School, aka "The Pre" (1990 - 1995). It was nice to be back in there and I was glad to see that the chapel has been well looked after since I left. However, I also wanted to have a look around and, during the course of doing so, I came across this organ which was not playable and there was no action between the detached console - visible in the photo below - and the pipes. It was only partly assembled (the back was open with pipes visible) and there was a console there. I got this photo of it, which also shows the console: Clifton College Chapel, Bristol E.J Johnson & Son, Cambridge, 1980 Pedal Dulciana 8 Open Diapason 8 Principal 4 Manual Dulciana 8 Open Diapason 8 Dulcet 4 Principal 4 Mixture 2rks The builder info is taken from a plate on the console. The NPOR does not record this organ's presence anywhere in Clifton College and I don't know where in the school it will go. But does anyone recognise this organ and, if so, where did it come from? It certainly was not in the chapel during my time at Clifton College and services in the CHapel were a regular feature of my time in "The Pre". If you think you can identify it and want a larger picture I can provide one: please PM me your email. Thanks. Dave Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
