Organs Preserved / Bishop for the Ordinariate
« on: October 15, 2013, 06:05:22 PM »
Having not been able to complete the purchase of the H&H from Ellenborough because the measurements given didn't include the pedals and so was too big I was a little downhearted.  However, I'm delighted to have secured the Bishop & Son instrument (opus 1273) built in 1881 from Chandos St Chapel in Hereford and you can see the deconstruction and reconstruction pictures at http://www.preciousblood.org.uk/new-organ.html

The organ is in the Chancel position and we used it last Sunday for the first time to sing the Missa de Angelis antiphonally with the congregation & West end Organ (sadly an Electronic at present but we have the 3 manual Lewis from St Mark's Battersea in store awaiting money to rebuild it).

Returning pipe organs to Catholic Churches is my contribution to the mission of the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham!


regards,

Chris Smith

Anyone ever seen or heard the following? Currently on eBay and rather over-extended one suspects.
