Murton Posted February 8, 2007 Share Posted February 8, 2007 Just a little thought for you all...faced with an instrument as described below, and an opportunity to rebuild...what would you do? 2 manual - 1937 Rushworth and Dreaper. Divided over choir stalls with a low chancel arch. Roosvelt chests – wimperings around, repetition of notes is very poor. Last cleaned in 1974...church very clean but suffering from an industrial type heating system that has roasted the organ (its recently been removed for proper heating!)...leatherwork pretty brittle! Pedal: Acoustic Bass 32 Subbass 16 Bourdon 16 Bass Flute 8 ext Octave Flute 4 ext Schalmei 16 -2nd hand in 1980 Bassoon 16 (from Swell) Great Bourdon 16 (from ped) Open diap I 8 Open II 8 Hohl Flute 8 Principal 4 Fifteenth 2 Mixture III Swell: Geigen 8 Gedackt 8 Salicional 8 Celestes 8 Geigen Principal 4 Stopped flute 4 Mixture III Bassoon 16 Trumpet 8 (voiced loudly) Oboe 8 (ext from bassoon) Accompaniment: Playable from great – stops from swell Gedackt 8 Salicional 8 Stopped flute 4 What would you do if you were faced with improving repetition, the versatility of the organ and increasing impact into the nave.
