Memorial plaques to lost organs
« on: October 16, 2010, 10:32:04 PM »
Hi!


It's rare to see gravestones or memorial plaques in memory of lost pipe organs. The one here is particularly poignant . . .

Does anyone know of any others? Please can you post photos here?


Here is the pipe display referred to:



The historic pipe instrument was replaced by a (then) top rate 3 manual analogue Johannus, which was inspirational enough for the top manual never to be used to the extent that its keys are stuck, for lack of use, and is now being replaced by a piano.


Pipe organs are so much more inspiratonal!


Best wishes

The objective is to reach human immortality—that is, to create things which are necessary to mankind, necessary to the purpose of the existence of mankind, and which have become the fruit that drives the creation of a higher state of mankind than ever existed before."
