Contract Signed

Hi Folks: The contract was just signed this week and now what do I do? Capable volunteers under the very close, watchful eye of the organ builder have finished installing the transplanted cases and façade just in time for Christmas (saved us a bit off the price). I have provided weekly updates in the bulletin and kept the congregation informed of the changes taking place. We will not hear a note until mid 2007. What did you do in a similar situation? Take the time to plan music for the busy installation period when everything will be upside down for a few weeks? Sign up the recitalists? Plan the party?

This is a big deal for our little parish. There has been a bit of negativism on the part of those that think replacing the aged electronic would be just fine. The pipe organ supporters are rather reserved – they are Anglicans!- and just biding there time. They know the end result will be an amazing thing for our church.

So, type up some stories and share your experiences.

Thanks.

What about a bit of website and some on going photos - Barry Jordan did it at his cathedral in Germany, so did Marlborough and (more village size) Twyford. I am sure readers here would also like to know what you are up to.
