Pierre Lauwers Posted October 27, 2010 Share Posted October 27, 2010 Since one day that it appeared in the news section, nobody started a thread yet, so I will open it; mind you, the link is on the french forum since yesterday already, where it meets with some interest, well, even attention (to say the least): http://www.mander-organs.com/portfolio/st-...s-southall.html Continental historians see Abraham Jordan as a kind of myth, someone completely exotic: this guy built a Swell division in St-Magnus the Martyr, London, in....1712 ! (In Belgium, we had to wait up to about 1850, just to give a point to compare with...) And now we can hear that Swell Trumpet, box closed, simply by clicking on the link towards a video on Youtube. And this, in an instrument which interest goes far beyond that; the tone of the flue stops seems to be delicate and sweet -recorded in the workshop, so without even an acoustic to help-. This restoration is a great news. Please, go on and restore more so tipically british baroque (and others!) organs as closest possible to their original state. Mr Mander (and others) can do it, as we can see and hear. But they need to be asked to do so, so maybe a part of the move lies in your own hands, the organists.
