Vox Humana Posted December 24, 2005 Share Posted December 24, 2005 Are you sure it was the full organ? Absolutely. I've heard it twice now (at two university graduation ceremonies) and from the repertoire given us I'm quite sure we had full organ. I was sat fairly near the back of the nave, but down there the instrument was less than overwhelming. Although I do not particularly like the work of R&D, I did find this quite a pleasant organ - and comfortable to play. I'd agree that what there was of it sounded really rather nice. St. Andrew's, Plymouth is also a good instrument - and also more than adequate in this large church. It's OK. The tone colours aren't that distinctive, though. I'd expect more variety for the size. One result of this "sameness" (and maybe it was intentional) is that it does the smoothest stop crescendo of any organ I've heard - if you like that sort of thing.
