Aeron Glyn Preston Posted April 21, 2011 Share Posted April 21, 2011 A couple of days ago, I had the privilege of playing this organ, which used to belong to William Gladstone. The church in which it lives is really in the back of beyond - deep in the Welsh-speaking rural heartland of Montgomeryshire (as was) - but organ and church are kept well maintained by a small but dedicated congregation. What a fantastic instrument it is! It just shows that the best organ builders can design tonally coherent instruments whatever their size. Willis's larger organs are justly famous, but which of his small organs deserve more attention? P. S. To any editors of the NPOR on this forum, the Harmonic Flute on this organ should be at 4' pitch.
