A link with way back

On Sunday, we lost a link with the past here at St. John's Cathedral, Newfoundland, with the death of Dr. Nigel Rusted at the age of 104. A surgeon, he also had many other interests and even acted as locum organist at the cathedral many years ago. Among his interesting stories were very clear recollections of note holding on the original 1904 Hope-Jones and Ingram organ while it was being tuned. Since that console was replaced when Casavants' built what was effectively a new organ incorporating the old pipes in 1927, that is some memory!
