Swell to great! Love it.
Looks lovely. Reminds me of several Georgian churches I used to work in from time to time in London. Where is it, out of interest? And - more to the point -can I unleash my own little organist onto it?
Is there a tab for Just Fine?
Really? One can used the organ and Swell to Great? Fabulous, now we need to know where it is please.
Oh, I love the name on organ stops. When I was little my Mum used to play at church sometimes and I would go with her to practice and sit on the long seat next to her marvelling at all the names on the stops and the immense sound. I love organ music still.
An organ playable by the public? That's pretty fantastic!
love that line!!Swell to great... I want a poster with that.
Toffeeapple I don't have an email for you, or I'd tell you!
I see I'm not the only one coveting the Swell to Great stop!So jealous that you really got to play it - something I've always wanted a go at but has always been strictly forbidden in chapels I have known.
oooh that could be fun, or ear piercingly painfully loud!
Just found this: http://www.organstops.org/I'm also liking 'bird whistle' and 'guckguck'.This was what I walked down, well, not the aisle but the stairs to:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hopaQjQFUYw&feature=fvst
I have e-mailed you...
I'm guessing a huge amount of fun, I would so love to have a go. Beautiful stained glass too!
What fun! My grandmother continued to be a church organist until she was 90. I agree with The List Writer-it was always fun to go with her to the empty church on Saturday and listen to her practice.
You're pretty swell to great yourself, old girl.
I keep coming back to look at that last photo - genius.
The church I got married in had a harmonium type organ...not exactly sure but it sometimes picked up police messages during mass. Honestly.
I love comments. I always try to respond - either here in the commentbox or by email if Blogger gives me your email address.Thanks for visiting!
