MAB Posted August 31, 2006 Share Posted August 31, 2006 Next Saturday, 9th September, as part of Dorking Heritage Weekend I am playing for a 'Top 10 Hymns' service at Dorking United Reformed Church. The church now sports a Copeman Hart electronic, but I seem to remember reading that before this, the church housed an organ originally built for the Royal Pavillion in Brighton. I mentioned this to someone at the church who thought this was also correct. Naively I asked what had happened to the old organ now that they had the electronic and I was told that it had simply been dismantled and taken to the scrap heap. Can anyone confirm the provenance of the old instrument and whether it was of any particular historic value ? Incidentally, in case you are interested, the top 10 hymns are very much the traditional favourites. Voting closes at midnight tomorrow (Friday), but at the moment in joint first place are Guide me O thou great redeemer, Shine Jesus Shine and Jerusalem.
