Coventry Comptoms
« on: February 23, 2017, 08:35:49 AM »
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.

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.

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
