St Paul’s Church Peterborough December 2021
St Paul’s has a working pipe (builder unknown) organ moved many years ago from a significantly smaller church. The original organ installed in the church was a much more substantial instrument by Wordsworth and Maskel of Leeds. I am told that extensive woodworm lead to the destruction of this instrument.
While the current instrument on the north side of the nave has a large case it lacks the power needed to fill this large space. The very energetic ministry in this church is keen for music to form a much more significant part of the worship than the current organ allows. With that in mind a 3 manual instrument has been installed on a temporary basis to investigate the bigger musical ambitions and a faculty application is in process.
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.
