With My Swansea Organ Association Group we are going to play organs at:

We are Going to:

Belmont Abbey

http://npor.emma.cam.ac.uk/cgi-bin/Rsearch.cgi?Fn=Rsearch&rec_index=A00515



St Peters Church

http://npor.emma.cam.ac.uk/cgi-bin/Rsearch.cgi?Fn=Rsearch&rec_index=N14965



We will also be going to Hereford Cathedral to join in the Evensong and also going to have a go on the organ after the service!


Which Organs are the best out of the three??

Cheers

Rob

Folks what can I say!!

It was brilliant yesterday in Hereford.

The Organ at Belmont Abbey was amazing!! Very Powerful and bright mixtures to say the least, soon after next week they are giving the organ an MOT.

St Peters Church I don't know what happened here - the Church was locked Rolling Eyes don't know why how can a stupid vicar forget??

But the Cathedral Organ WAS AMAZING!!! Very Happy we sat at watching the Choral Evensong there it was brilliant, we then had an opportunity on the organ, I played the Processional Richard Lloydd (Who many years ago was assistant organist there) sounded absolutly buzzing!! When on Full Organ was just sensational!! The acoustics where simply breath taking I had the 32foot Reed out!!

I'm deffo going to go back up there and this time my video camera is coming with me!!

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

I've just had a 'phone call offering me the organist's job that I'd applied for (against some tough opposition).

The organ is a superb 2-manual which has been completely rebuilt over the past ten years and now has 41 speaking stops and a 64 channel piston control system Shocked

The entry on NPOR is wildly out of date so I'll be updating this soon. So, time to crack open a bottle of wine - and get some practice in!
