pcnd5584 Posted July 18, 2012 Share Posted July 18, 2012 I read somewhere recently that the organ of Ripon Cathedral is shortly to undergo some further remedial work, together with some minor tonal alterations to the Choir Organ. However, I have been unable to find further details of this. I assume that the 'minor tonal alterations to the Choir Organ' would centre around the removal of the Nazard, Tierce and so-called Cimbel (22-26-29, at C1). Presumably, the plan would be to replace these stops with a Viola da Gamba and a Vox Angelica, as prior to 1963. However, I note that the Choir Organ gained a stop in 1963. Is the Cimbel on a clamp, I wonder? I had hoped that the alterations might also include removing the Coppel Flute and Larigot from the G.O. and re-instating the former Hohl Flöte (8ft.) and the Harmonic Flute (4ft.). Does anyone here know of any further information (which can be published) regarding this proposed work, please? Thank you. Incidentally, I note that the NPOR has no details regarding the builder of the Nave console in 2000, simply stating 'unknown'. I had thought that this was constructed and installed by Harrisons - can anyone confirm (or correct) this, please? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
