Coventry Comptoms


Last Saturday, I was with the Coventry & Warwickshire Organists' association and we visited two small Compton organs in Coventry.  I was able to do some rather rough & ready videos of them (excuse the playing - I've not had much opportunity to practice recently!)

First up was Bablake School - recently rebuilt by Trevor Tipple with the addition of an unenclosed Trumpet and some changes to the Great upperwork. https://youtu.be/N8NnmmGSJvM?list=PLT4JufLurcFudrNY9yBNkKF2b92XIMX-w

Second organ was just down the road at St George, Coventry.  An untouched 4 rank job - the reed unit is quite a beast!  Stop list for both are on NPOR. https://youtu.be/y0dvrGtjxa4?list=PLT4JufLurcFsvI77TubfXQIe_HqFonjlq

The differences in sound between the 2 organs which are originally of similar vintage is interesting.  The reed unit at St George's would probably be at home in a small cathedral!

Every Blessing
