Decoration Revealed

receptionAfter Evensong on the 15thFebruary we had a real treat as Dr John DrJtalks speed journey through the history of Organ decorations, from cases to pipes, London to Australia and ended up with a fascinating introduction to the work to be done on Betty’s own pipes.It was also a chance for Mark James, Animateur of the Betty Restoration Project, to introduce those present to the pipe organ audiancedemonstrator which hasbeen lent to St John’s by the Royal Festival Hall.

Dr Rowntree’s presentation came after a beautiful service of Evensong where, due to the advanced stage of Betty’s demise, the setting of Stanfordhad to be changed from C to B flat at the last moment. With only a little over a week to go before Betty’s begin’s to make her journey to the Organ builders it was great to have a proper look at her artwork before she disappears for several months.DrJ
