MusingMuso Posted January 13, 2011 Share Posted January 13, 2011 Is it just me, but am I right in believing that the remarkable legacy of both T C Lewis and Thos.Hill was sidelined by the fashion for ever smoother and more powerful sounds? I don't actually object to the classic sounds of Arthur Harrison, the reed dominated sound of Willis or the vintage Bentley roar of Hill, Norman & Beard, but to my ears, (with the exception of Liverpool Cathedral), nothing comes close to the quality of what these two organ-builders achieved. A quick listen to the following gives some idea of what we turned our backs on. Why didn't we, as a nation, build on that fantastic quality of English sound?
