1000+ Years of
British Organs

There has been a lively trade in organ building in the UK since the 10th century, and composing since the 14th (Possibly? Let the scholars fight over this one).

This talk follows the development of both instruments and music from earliest times to the 21st century, noting on the way some of the strange hybrids which resulted as continental influences were felt. And what would Renatus Harris's proposed six-manual and pedal organ for St Paul's cathedral have been like, with its 42 2/3ft Great Double Sackbut?

This talk lasts about 60 minutes, or longer if required.  All necessary equipment (projector, screen, sound system) is provided.
