John Robinson Posted May 11, 2010 Share Posted May 11, 2010 I concur with what MM says about Leeds Town Hall organ. I used to attend every Tuesday lunchtime recital when I lived on the 'correct' side of the Pennines. At first sight, one might imagine the 'new' Positive organ would have some difficulty in emerging from the rather small grille behind which it hides, but in practice it speaks quite clearly and audibly and, as MM says, blends well with the other divisions. Whatever the provenance of the pipes, it sounded quite beautiful to me. The one reservation I have with this organ is that the 32' Open Metal (cast iron, I believe), which looks very imposing in the hall, seemed to be inaudible whenever I went to hear it, at least where I was sitting. Strangely, the 32' stopped Sub Bass sounded more effective. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
