And over here, from an earlier manifestation of the company is this - there is a CD available played by Francis Jackson. The church is well worth a visit too.

In the same neck of the woods, from the same stable and well worth a visit is this. I remember playing it for a Sunday morning service in the mid/late '70s and recall it being a fine instrument, if somewhat oppressive in a rather small and acoustically dry chapel. I believe the organ is still in use, though I have no information about its condition.

It was working fine about 10 years ago.
