St Helen’s Church Etwall February 2018
While St Helen’s is a relatively small church they have an ambitious music programme and were very keen to acquire an instrument that would allow the widest possible repertoire and help attract and retain future organists.
As a result the instrument is larger than one might expect in a church of this size and it did indeed replace an older 2 manual digital instrument.
The Viscount Envoy 350-FV now sits nicely placed in it’s surrounding as can be seen in the photo below. Speakers were placed on beams that span the nave and also in the choir to allow more sensitive support when needed for the singers.
