Simon Walker Posted June 16, 2011 Share Posted June 16, 2011 I was watching an episode of Midsomer Murders - One from October last year with a musical theme titled 'Masterclass' It mainly focuses on piano students, but the Dorchester Abbey features prominantly, and indeed it's organ does too. Whether the organ music heard is indeed the instrument on film I don't know, but I suspect it is. Anyhow - it just interested me, and on doing a bit of research I found some photos of the same building on flickr where the organ was not present! Intrigued by this I found out that in fact the organ in it's present form is very recent - having been rebuilt by Peter Collins Ltd. There is a little information on the church website, but no spec, nor anything particularly technical. http://www.dorchester-abbey.org.uk/services3.htm . NPOR hasn't been updated and similarly it is not acknowledged at all on the Peter Collins Website, despite the fact it must have been completed a while ago now, and most of their other jobs, including restorations are included. http://petercollinsltd.com/index.html Does anyone know anymore? It does look like an interesting one. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
