Pipes made for Nicholson organ in Radley College
It has been pleasure making a selection of pipes for the new organ in Radley College, Oxfordshire, which is being built by our friends at Nicholson & Co.
The three-manual instrument will be sited in the centre of the west gallery within a new oak case. It will have 53 stops, with mechanical action to the keys and electro-pneumatic action to the pedal. Installation is planned for this autumn.
Chris Shires made the bottom 12 notes of the Salicional 8', and the bottom nine notes of the Viol de Gamba, and Terry Doyle made the pedal Principal 8.
Other pipes made in our workshop for this job included a Gemshorn, a Great Mixture IV, Swell Mixture IV and Pedal Mixture II, and an Open Diapason and Fifteenth for the Swell.
