A New Organ For Keble College, Oxford


Recommended Posts

Has anyone else seen this?


After some years of an electronic substitute, this will no doubt be welcome news to the incumbent musicians - the organ, not the article, that is.


There is a link to Kenneth Tickell's website, where may be seen the stoplist. It would be interesting to know how much of the previous instrument (Hill/Rushworth & Dreaper) is to be retained - other than the conservation of the front pipes, with their polychrome decoration, which is the only specific reference on Tickell's site.


There are a number of slightly unconventional features: the proposed tierce mixture on the Pedal Organ, the Solo division (instead of the former Choir Organ) and a Cornet and a (presumably) more powerful solo reed placed on a fourth clavier, a little like a scaled-down version of the Solo Organ at Chichester Cathedral.

I know the proposals for the pipe organ in Keble Chapel have been discussed here before although I haven't had time to find the link (and I'm not very good at hyper-links anyway). At one stage there was a possibility of the 4 manual Willis/HN&B from Brighton Parish Church going there but for various reasons that fell through.
