NEW: Two manual, full pedal 13 stop pipe organ available
« on: January 13, 2017, 04:43:09 PM »
I have been asked to assist with the "disposal" of another pipe organ that I would hate to see bulldozed into destruction.

So could everyone kindly ask around for a small church or chapel (or even a large residence, club or community centre) that might be willing to help re-locate an organ with outline details as follows:

Builder: Sweetland of Bath
Date:    Originally built mid-late 1800s, rebuilt by Sweetland in 1872 and 1932, relocated to current chapel.
Location: In or near Bath, Somerset, England, UK.
Condition: I have played this instrument: apart from tuning and a few minor issues, it is in very good condition.
Disposition:
Pedal   Low C  - f1       Keys 30
               Bourdon 16'   
Great   Low C  - f3       Keys 54
               Open Diapason   8'
               Dulciana 8'
               Clarabella 8'
               Principal 4'
               Flute 4'
               Fifteenth 2'   (added 1953 by Sweetland)
Swell   Low C  - f3  Keys 54, Enclosed
               Open Diapason 8'
               Lieblich Gedact    8'
               Salicional 8'
               Voix Celestes 8'
               Principal 4'
               Oboe 8'
The console and case is about 2.5metre wide, 4.6metre high, and 2.1metre deep.

There is a YouTube video which illustrates the organ very well at https://youtu.be/_ZJ5tiJcLa8. The video incorporates several static images of the organ at the beginning before moving on to what the organ sounds like.
The chapel will accept a donation for the instrument.

Contact In the first contact me: kenneth at kaspencer dot com. I may provide direct contact details for the chapel later.

Thanks for reading!

Sounds nice.  I hope you can find a good home for it.

A happy ending for this one. It was recently dismantled (under the supervision of a local organ builder) to be installed in a school in Tetbury. Many thanks to all who helped in any way.
