Our Lady of the Visitation, Greenford. Middlesex

This most contemporary church has always had an electronic organ.

Greenford Chancel

The original Compton instrument had given over 40 years of good service but was becoming increasingly unreliable. Anthony Bogdan Organs were asked to advise and we are delighted that the church selected our Envoy 350-F to replace the old Compton. The existing speaker chambers on the North and South walls of the Chancel were reused. The choir division was placed in the north chamber allowing for a delicate single source of sound for choir accompaniment. The organ voicing was carried out solely by Anthony Bogdan.



Greenford Console

The Reverend Eugene Lynch. Parish Priest, Our Lady of the Visitation Greenford Middlesex made the following comment

In our Parish in Greenford, we have known for some time that our old Compton organ had reached the end of it’s days. But we were unsure as to what we should do. Then we were approached by the widow of one of our parishioners. She wanted to raise money for an organ in memory of her husband.

That gave us the impulse to start things moving. But where do you start when one is not an expert in this. So as one does in this day and age……we consulted Mr. Google. Too much information…but the one thing we learned was, that it was not just a question of picking an instrument, but also of getting the right person to do the “Voicing”.
After hours of searching we kept coming back to the web page of Anthony Bogdan Organs and were impressed by the testimonies. So we phoned, and Anthony himself answered.
In no time we arranged for him to visit, we liked what he had to say and there and then placed the order. Later the people from Viscount came with Anthony, measured up, and a few weeks later we took proud possession of our new Viscount Envoy 350-FV  Physis Organ. Anthony visited the following day and voiced the organ. We are thrilled, our organist, Peter is thrilled, Ian our pianist (who wanted nothing to do with a new organ…he wanted an electric piano) is thrilled….and is now playing the organ. The sound is wonderful, fills the whole church and it’s a very large building, and the singing has improved.
All in all, a very satisfactory, painless, and economical solution to a very important part of our liturgical life. We can’t thank you enough Anthony.
