I'd like to urge anyone with any interest in organs to support this concert and the project at the ESN. It's a good installation and very adventurous, superbly executed. I don't like the reincarnation of the original Carlo Curley Allen - it's just not the instrument it was, in my opinion, but the Wurlitzer is superb of its kind and particularly extensive.

Ruth - apologies for lack of recitals at Hammerwood and we have a few boxes of your stock that might be interesting to people.

Best wishes

What has happened to Carlo's Allen/ I had thought it might have ended up in Pershore Abbey to replace the Bradford there.

Carlo's Allen has been installed at Uckfield and its vintage electronics replaced by some computer system and . . . it doesn't sound the same. The speaker system isn't to my liking either but the Wurlitzer is superbly installed and excellent.

Another high profile electronic I don't like also is at Worth Abbey. There are places there where the placing of the speakers reflects off the curves of the building to give some very disturbing effects when seated in some parts of the chapel.

Electronics have to be top rate to be convincing!
