Successful completion of Organ Appeal
Thanks to all who contributed to ensuring the future of music at Holy Trinity.
The high-quality organ in Holy Trinity was built by the Swiss builder Kuhn in 1985. The organ plays a central part in the worship of the church, being used for 3 services each Sunday.
The organ has about 1,000 pipes and many thousands of working parts. After 30 years of use, it was time to clean, repair and replace parts of the organ. Now completed, this operation should not be needed again for the next 20 or 30 years.
We also took the opportunity to add an electrical control system to the stop action and add playing aids – i.e. the pistons. This enables the player to fully take advantage of all the possible timbres playable on the organ. We also added ‘Divisional Pistons’ – possibly the only set in the whole of Switzerland.
