divmstr Posted June 13, 2006 Share Posted June 13, 2006 Hello. I attended the King's School, Canterbury, during what was thought to be the 'last rebuild' of the Willis Organ in 1968. I am interested to know what prompted a second rebuild not 10 years later. The resulting instrument is spectacular, I have several recordings of it in my collection. The voicing is quite exquisite, all the way down to the strings and up to the heavy winds. I am interested to know why you decided to reduce it to a three manual from four, and what stops wer removed (if any), and how you ended up with the current specification. The addition of the Nave organ was brilliant. I remember when we performed in the Nave of the Cathedral having to use the Hammond, which was scarcely a replacement, and you could not even hear the Great Organ in the Quire. Cheers.
