Ronald Shillingford Posted January 14, 2007 Share Posted January 14, 2007 It amazes me that in the UK Organists have a serious problem with keeping their loft and Organ tidy. Time and time again Ive come across Churches where Music is left strewn on top of the Console or on the floor. Shoes which u could easily trip on and sweet papers and bottles of water for those thirsty Organists/Choir. Its a disgrace ! I know can hear some of u chuckling now ! But seriously folks clean your act up. Its not nice to come and play in such hazardous conditions . Finally I cannot abide dusty Organ lofts and Organ Consoles where the dust is everywhere on the casing keys etc. Theres no excuse for idleness . A good bit of elbow grease and a duster and u be surprised how gleaming those keys and Console will look. And please please please don't book recitalists if u know your Organ is not in tip top condition. Theres nothing worst when coming to play a recital and u find numerous faults on a instrument which simply is not up to par. Its not fair on the recitalist when music has to be transposed up or down or played an octave up because notes are not playing. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
