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.

Regards - Sarah J x

Truly Baroque decoration on what must be a wonderful instrument. Noel Mander was one of the great names in 20th-century organ-building.
Red, azure and gold make a fine colour combination that you have exploited well.

The detail and colours, the subdued richness, are glorious. There's a mellowness about them, all of this has been lovingly dusted and polished.
I like the way you have that carved wooden band exiting top right corner....

I like the crop Sarah, and the colours are awesome. I'm still yet to see or hear a better Organ anywhere in any Cathedral, it really is outstanding.
