pcnd5584 Posted May 16, 2014 Share Posted May 16, 2014 I wonder if other board members have been watching the documentary mini-series on York Minster on Friday evenings? If so, I wonder if anyone knows why at least four of the stop-heads on the Nave console appear to have blank paper labels stuck over the engraving. Two of them are high up on the jamb, just below the four chorus reeds. Prior to the 1993 additions and alterations by Geoffrey Coffin, the G.O. had twenty-two stops; there are now a total of twenty-four stops on this division. Since the stop-heads on the screen console have clearly been skimmed and re-engraved*; I had presumed that the Nave console stop-heads would have been skimmed and re-engraved at the same time. I wonder if perhaps there have been some more recent alterations to the G.O. of this instrument - does anyone have any further information, please? * As this photograph shows: http://www.yorkminster.org/worship-and-choir/choir-and-music/organ-amp-organists.html Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
