Latest update on our organ rebuild

2019 April 08 Organ Manuals ready to be fitted in

Latest news

The organ will not now be ready for our organ spectacular, so this has been postponed to a later date.

Almost there!

It’s been a long wait, but things are finally looking up! The Village Workshop have been busy over the past few months rebuilding our organ. The photo above shows the Organ Manuals ready to be fitted in place.

We are reinstating the Choir (removed in the 1970s when the organ was refurbished) and adding a new stop – the Larigo! The electrics have been replaced up to modern specifications and the old pipes restored in Thaxted by Pipe Organ builders The Village Workshop.

Below are photos of the Pedals and Stops waiting to be fitted.

Don’t miss our Organ Spectacular on Saturday May 18 at 7:30pm when a variety of our organists past and present will provide an evening of organ musical delights. This is a free concert in celebration of the organ restoration. Sorry this has been postponed as the organ will not be ready in time. Please check back here for more details.
