Those of you who are regular Facebook browsers may well have seen the request go out for a suitable instrument for this recent outdoor service to commemorate the opening of the new Aldington War Memorial. There was no immediate local response so we decided to help out organist Andrew Butler, and arrange for our Cantorum VI to be couriered to his home.
Local resident David Hughes has just completed a 66 year mission to erect a memorial for the 50 villagers that lost their lives in the two World Wars.
Andrew is a familiar Facebook Friend of ours, so we felt it appropriate that we should make a small contribution to this special ceremony.
You can see Andrew here playing the Cantorum VI (top left) which was connected to a external speakers via an amplifier and by all accounts did a very good job. Andrew is in a tent but as you can see, from the picture below, the sun came out for this service, a rare occurrence so far this summer.
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.
