Selby Abbey, Yorkshire September 2014
In 2014 we were delighted to have been chosen by Selby Abbey to provide a temporary digital organ for up to 2 years while the large and historic Hill pipe organ (with some later alterations by Hill Norman & Beard) was restored. It is always a joy to install any church instrument but the opportunities to work in truly enormous Churches, Cathedrals and Abbeys is rare and of course a challenge.
We installed a Regent 356 on 12 speakers and a bass. The speakers are in the triforium space so speak into the nave from both the north and south sides at a height of over 10 metres. The wiring involved a degree of crawling in very tight spaces under the 32 ft pedal organ pipes. We also put 2 speakers under the west end window to provide a state trumpet which apart from the distance from the console was a relatively easy task. To read a more detailed account of this installation and see some fabulous pictures please go to our blog post on Selby Abbey choosing Viscount.
