This organ is in Bristol, UK and has a collection of stops typical of an
English organ of its size - lots of flutes, hardly any reeds, hardly any
mixtures. I think it's about a hundred years old. The console has been
restored/updated and the pneumatic mechanism has been replaced with
electric, but the ranks of pipes are the same.
You are correct that some maintenance is required. One or two of the
stops are badly out of tune and are temporarily out of use. Some of the
other stops are slightly out of tune, and still used. There are several
air leaks (but fortunately the poor HF response of the mics has cut that
out ;) It's just a case of money!
I personally think the registration choice is suitable in all of these
recordings, but of course this is a matter of opinion. The organist
playing here is an experienced professional. This church has a smaller
organ than he is used to - he previously was the resident organist at
Crediton and has also played at cathedrals across Europe. I consider
myself fortunate to work with someone so knowledgeable, talented and
I realise we are now well and truly OT :)
Thanks too for your advice. How important is mono compatibility, given
that these recordings are burnt to CD as stereo, and handed out to
people who listen to them on their stereos at home?
