Murton Posted January 31, 2011 Share Posted January 31, 2011 Please forgive the blatant advertisement, but recent activity on similar sites recounting stories about the Liverpool organ building firm that is no more has prompted me to mention the recording that I made on the Nicholson rebuild of one of their instruments last year. At Wrekin College can be found a Nicholson transformation of a vintage Rushworth from 1937. The instrument I worked with from 1997 was a fine hymn machine, (volume was necessary to lead 450 lusty voices) and despite its limited spec, was able to still produce musical sounds, despite being completely worn out. The console was and still is one of the most comfortable to play. Rushworth's demise came just before we made the decision to fully restore and enhance the instrument and despite there being only two new ranks added, the organ has increased in volume and versatility - a credit to Nicholsons work. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...em=270700231507 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
