Rather different to the Hope-Jones organ at Worcester cathedral which Elgar liked, or at least, didn't positively dislike (inter alia, having offered to demonstrate it to Dora Penny of 'Enigma Variations' fame).

 

Wonder what he would have thought of this new one? Will they be playing his Sonata on it at some point?

 

In reply to the question above, I haven't heard it live but there are some Youtube recordings of it. This one is of reasonable audio quality:

Thanks for posting that YouTube link, Colin. Have only listened to a few snippets. The modern piece on the mean-tone chair organ I suspect won’t find a place in the repertoire.
