Our organ was built by Kenneth Tickell in 2004
The organ has two manuals and twelve stops. All ranks are enclosed, with the exception of the Open Diapason and Bourdon, enabling the majority of the organ to be balanced with voices.
Psalm tones often require a held chord of quite lengthy duration when the bottom note is often in the bass octave. There is no breaking into stopped basses for the open 8’ ranks, but this organ provides the timbres for, and rewards of playing, a range of organ repertoire.
This organ piece is unusual for our choir, but is fun for the summer sound for awhile.
Organ: G Minor Prelude by Gabriel Pierne
This is on the Abbey organ and is full of the joy of this Liturgical season.
