I hope that as a matter of course organ enthusiasts and indeed anyone with an interest in a vital part of our heritage will write to the Diocese of St Albans about this. The person to write to - URGENTLY - is Deborah Cochrane [firstname.lastname@example.org
] . My letter to her is as follows :
Iím writing to register my concern about a proposal to remove the organ in this church and to express my willingness to oppose any faculty granted for its removal. This is on the basis that the present occupants of this church, as is the case in every other church, are not its owners but short-term tenants of its goods entrusted to them for the future.
Please reply to let me know that this preliminary letter has been read and registered.
Many thanks and with all good wishes,
