The Organ in 凸肚大学教堂

历史

The 教堂 organ was built in 1988 by J.W.Walker and Sons, Ltd through the munificence of Norma, Lady Dalrymple-Champneys. It has 19 speaking stops divided between two manuals and pedals; the action is mechanical. Reflecting the spirit of the eighteenth-century English organ in its design, 表达和调优, it is very much at home in Baroque music. 尽管如此, it is well able to meet the eclectic demands that are made of it, acquitting itself with distinction also in repertory of more recent times, whether in solo or when accompanying the Choir. The elegant case in which it is housed was originally designed for the Schreider organ of 1716 in St Mary Abbotts Kensington.
