Well if will certainly help me, indirectly - thanks!  :)

Dear Organ Matters Colleagues

Do have a look at the time lapse video I recorded of our chamber organ being taken down by Goetze and Gywnn on the 18th November for restoration and return next year. The appeal still requires a little topping up please help if you can, donations are always welcome. Email me at if you wish to donate

Every good wish

Sad news about Bill Drake, I had the chance to met him three times last year when he came to look at our Georgian chamber organ, which the firm will still be restoring later in the year once Spitlafields is completed.

Sorry everyone - bad news, this is from a friend of mine who played the instrument on many occasions, although it appears all is not completely lost

"I was at the College about 3 weeks ago and was able to see Groves (organ builders) taking the last of the pipes down.  They'll be used in a  new, larger, instrument that they're installing at Trent College. Better than scrapping it but very sad to see it go."

There is is


Fundraising for an Organ / Organ suite for William Allen Chamber organ
« on: August 23, 2013, 09:07:39 PM »
Dear all

Further to my post regarding this instrument

The composer Tim Knight has kindly written a suite in four very attractive little movements; the whole piece takes about 6 minutes but each movement can be used in isolation. The movements are Introduction, Gigue Meditation and Scherzo are for single manual with a split at middle C but can be used on larger instruments with or without pedal

The music is now available through his website; proceeds from the sale will help the appeal as well as raise awareness of the organ, please take a look

Many thanks



What is the latest with this organ?
