Emsworth Methodist Church October 2021
After visiting Haslemere Methodist Church, the leaders of Emsworth Methodist Church selected an Envoy 35-S to replace their old Viscount Domus 1332. Two pairs of external speakers in white replaced the previous single black pair at the back of the church, for improved spread of sound. Meanwhile our light oak real wood veneer finish was a very good match to the existing church furniture.
Richard is based part-time in our Bicester head office, also being a freelance organist in the Oxford area. He comes to Viscount with many years’ experience in the digital organ industry having worked previously for the Royal School of Church Music in its Addington days. Richard has been organist and choir director at St. Margaret’s Church, Oxford for the past fifteen years.
At the end of this morning’s service, members of the congregation were queueing to sing the praises of the new organ. I have since received further enthusiastic responses by phone and email. The first hymn was Tell out, my soul and the congregation was clearly uplifted and inspired by the full organ accompaniment to the last verse. It was also a great delight to play.
Thanks to your helpful explanations and comments whilst you were setting up User 1 on Friday, I was able to set up a quiet User 2 yesterday morning, with a lovely variety of stops from the organ’s library. Not a quick exercise, however, as one is spoilt for choice!
Thanks to you and your colleagues, we now have an outstanding instrument which should enhance our worship for years to come. Roger and Hugh made an excellent team on Thursday, and did a first class job. Please do pass on our thanks to them. Finally, a most sincere thank you to you for your invaluable contribution to this project. Coming from a fellow organist, it has been enormously helpful and reassuring, and very much appreciated.
