Philip J Wells Posted June 26, 2011 Share Posted June 26, 2011 Talking of big reeds!! Does anyone remember the solo reed on the old St. Chad's Cathedral organ in Birmingham? I think it was called 'Trompeta Argentina' - or something similar. ...........................I heard that most of the old organ went into the melting pot - a rank of wooden pipes, I think, were saved for the new organ but that the pipes of the big reed were also saved. I wonder what became of it? The Trompeta Argenta was on the Walker at Ampleforth, I think. The St Chad's reed (Trompeta Real) went on the Nicholson rebuild at Monmouth Parish Church.
