Organs in danger / Re: St Paul's Church, St Albans
« on: November 09, 2017, 11:33:34 AM »
I have the contact details for a Polish organ builder who is relocating and restoring organs to a very high standard. Let me know if this is an avenue you'd like to pursue. His team have recently removed an organ from a redundant church in Liverpool after a fruitless search to find a home for it in UK

an ambitious expansion programme for an organ in our church, which sadly closed, means that I have some organ parts/pipes looking for a new home. The organ has been dismantled and taken to Poland for restoration and installation there. There is a blower, 4 reservoirs, a tremulant and a selection of pipes including some Willis/R&D pipework and a Hill tuba, recently restored by Shires. If anyone is interested please PM me and I can give more information. I'll be looking for reasonable donation towards our organ fund. I've decided to advertise it here before posting it on EBay.

I'm fairly sure this is an organ I went to look at a few years ago. It's been listed on the IBO redundant organs website since 2007. It was originally built by R&D. IBO ref is 118.

I ordered a copy of Promenades en Provence, vol. 1 by Eugene Reuschel from a website only to find out it's now out of print. Does anyone have any ideas how I could get hold of a copy please?

Hi Neil, could you post the specification please?

hi James, I've just rescued the pipework of a 2m R&D from a church about to be demolished. Is this something which might interest you?

Very impressive indeed, the Liverpool organ always makes my hair stand on end. Does anyone know what happened to the 5 manual console that was originally in the nave?

Hi! mentions two five manual consoles.

At over 10k pipes by how much does it pip the Albert Hall to be the UK's largest?

Is the "Corona Organ" the world record for the most exotically named?

Best wishes

David P

Liverpool is bigger by 271 pipes. The central space section which was added to Liverpool reclaimed the title in 2007.

yes the quire console had luminous couplers. I used to be organ scholar there and when the sun shone through the south windows you couldn't tell waht was couple and what wasn't!

Stefano, there is a list of redundant organs on the IBO web site, the one which may suit your requirements most closely is this one

which is currently in storage so would save on costs of dismantling.

best wishes,
