Vox Humana Posted August 19, 2014 Share Posted August 19, 2014 I don't think I am breaking any confidences by mentioning this as the abbey are not being secretive about it and the information is circling independently on the grapevine, but I have been told by two sources within the abbey that they are currently seeking quotes from a range of organ builders for two new organs, a west-end instrument and a quire organ. Both my conversations were unfortunately interrupted so I have no further information. I do not know whether there will be two consoles or whether both instruments will be controlled from one. I would guess the latter since I do not see any need for two and I doubt there would be room in the west gallery (though I have never been up there). We will have to wait and see. Either way, it would seem, prima facie, to be goodbye to the Downes/Walker organ. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
