Viscount videos with D’Arcy Trinkwon
We also have a selection of videos featuring D’Arcy Trinkwon on the Viscount YouTube Channel. Below is a playlist recorded in the splendid Selby Abbey.
The videos above are from 2014 when D’Arcy Trinkwon and Viscount collaborated to make a DVD on the Regent 356 organ in Selby Abbey. This helped publicise the fund raising programme for the repair of the magnificent Hill pipe organ and also make a small contribution through DVD sales.
I have had a passion for church organs since the tender age of 12. I own and run Viscount Organs with a close attention to the detail that musicians appreciate; and a clear understanding of the benefits of digital technology and keeping to the traditional and emotional elements of organ playing.
