URGENT CALL to rescue BRILLIANT SMALL THREE MANUAL ORGAN
« on: April 08, 2010, 10:44:22 AM »


Dear All


An instrument similar in scale to the Convent instrument which was bulldozed is to be displaced by an electronic. RAPIDLY. Please do not electrocute the Church Warden for this - I already have - and he is only carrying out what he has been asked to do.

I wish Church committees could be more flexible and would listen to people telling them how much better an investment a pipe organ is in the long term. Because this organ is clearly not appreciated where it is (you might substitute those words for expletives - I blame also the advertising of pedlars of electronic wares in their pages of pipe organs that their wires have displaced, like a safari trophy hunter's wall) a HOME IS URGENTLY REQUIRED FOR THIS INSTRUMENT.


Please telephone Michael Ward 01424 460727 and you might email

Hi

I have played this organ many times back in the 1970's & 80's and can vouch for its tonal quality.  It's not as limiting as it might look from the stop list - it copes adequately with congregational accompaniment in the church - and I've also played it for a male voice choir of about 30.

It was originally a house organ - so just the job for a compact home practice instrument.  If only I had space!!!!

Every Blessing

Tony

I agree with Tony. If I had space I'd be happy to take it as well.

I hope someone else with a warm heart can help it.

First... For Bob, welcome to the forum! ;D ;D ;D And Simon, for that good bit of news... It is often the case where we hear about an instrument in a perilous situation, but never find out "whatever happened to..."  I am glad it will soon find a new home...
