Hi!

A good looking Brindley and Foster instrument is being sold in bits for lack of a purchaser for the whole organ
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=160422826832 is the Principal 4ft and the Diapason and display pipes and other things are on another auction by the same seller.

Best wishes

The problem here appears to be a lack of knowledge in certain quarters about being able to sell (or give) organs on.  I spoke to the seller who has only acquired the material post breaking up, so its not all available, but of course if we had known about this in advance of the organ being removed maybe something could have been done.  The seller is doing a fantastic job of making sure the remaining material is preserved.

Hi!

Thanks for this info. That's the real reason why a forum like this can really make a difference with a place that's likely to be well searchable as a place to buy or sell organs in order to assure their rescue. However, searchability is really helped by lots of people posting about lots of different related subjects and in this way, if people can support this forum in this way, it might have a chance of achieving its intended purpose. I don't want to see any other organs go this way or worse, that of Staplehurst convent.

Jonathan - many thanks

Best wishes
