The Pipes from the organ at Rochester Cathedral, very impressive and very pretty to look at. I tried to correct the distortion as much as possible but this was more about the detail than a record shot.
The organ dates back to an instrument built by Samuel Green in 1791 and was enlarged by WIlliam Hill in 1835. Hill made further changes in 1865 & 1870. This organ was moved in 1875 by J W Walker to a new case by Gilbert Scott which stands either side of the screen today. A new organ was built by J W Walker in 1905 using much of the original pipework and then they rebuilt this organ in 1957, electrifying the action but it was too big to maintain in a small space. Mander undertook a major rebuild in 1989 adding a new choir organ case and renewing half the pipes. This was upgraded in 2006.
Thank you for your time, as always your thoughts/comments are very welcome.
