WE NO LONGER HIRE THIS INSTRUMENT - FOR NEW INSTRUMENTS PLEASE ENQUIRE.
This three stop continuo box organ instrument was built in 2014 and available for hire. Its small dimensions allow it to be transported with ease in our van and to be positioned unobtrusively on stage or in a church with any size of orchestra or choir. The blower and small wind regulator, ensuring there is no drop in pressure, are contained within the lower section along with some of the eight foot basses and the remainder of the pipework on a slider soundboard in the main upper section.
The actions are mechanical and the pitch can be altered between A=415HZ //A=440HZ // A=446HZ simply at the keyboard by the player. All temperaments are possible ensuring authentic performances of all ages of music.

The voicing is in our house style which follows the Baroque principals of Arp Schnitger and Christian Müller providing a tonal quality which is beautiful and singing useful for all occasions. The musicianship of the voicing is evident in the organ's versatility, the articulation of each stop and in combination is exquisite.
The instrument is available to be heard prior to a booking.
