SOS for a church organ in Coventry

Following the vandalism of the church last week, the stripping of the roof of copper on Monday and the closing of the church this 1955 Nicholson Organ needs to removed at the earliest opportunity. http://www.npor.org.uk/cgi-bin/Rsearch.cgi...ec_index=D03111

Good stop-knob console. Electric action (of course) and most useful pipework. Good and fine Trumpet. OFFERS!! and removable asap.

 

Do get in touch if you would like more details. This could be somebody's gain and they would also earn the gratitude of a most devoted and sorrowful parish which has been so badly let down by 'cutting edge' architects in post-war Coventry.

 

Best wishes,

Nigel

What an absolute shame. Personally I love the feel of buildings like that when they're in a better state of repair. Have played in 2 50's churches, one the result of bomb damage, the other a rebuild of a temporary building. Both were filled with light and warmth and a super acoustic. Fortunately both were well designed and built and to my knowledge have never given any major problems even with a floor to ceiling glass brick West wall. Late afternoon Summer sunshine took on a whole new aura.
