St John’s Church Royston November 2022
After almost 4 years of rebuilding work after a fire destroyed the church roof and much of the interior, our Regent 235 2 manual moving drawstop instrument has been installed replacing a pipe organ also destroyed by the fire.
Much of the space the pipe organ once filled has been reclaimed to make a meeting room while 4 speakers project into the chancel from the top of the arched niche that used to house the pipe organ. Despite pipework also being set on a cantilever shelf sitting outside the niche and in the chancel, the pipe organ failed to penetrate much to the west end of this large church.
To ensure our instrument did not suffer from the same weakness a further 4 speakers were placed high on the nave roof beams. A switch at the console allows the musician to select chancel, nave or both sets of speakers depending on the congregation size in the building.
