I just love this organ and the magnificent sound it gives out. You can hear my interview with Anthony Mundye about the organ by clickikg the play button above.

Part of a much larger organ that sat at the other end of the church, it was stripped down and re-modelled keeping the large pipes for decoration only but retaining all the smaller pipes.

I'm trying to find out more about it and its origins.If you have any information text me with the subject as "organ" on 07917858876

I have included the sound files of an interview I did with Anthony a few years back which gives an insight in to the church origins,the organ and includes Olwen playing a very beautiful Prelude by Georg Phillipp Telemann (1681 - 1767) on the tune "How brightly shines" (R&S 182) ...Telemann was a German composer who became music director of the Opera in Hamburg. He was a prolific composer, writing operas,oratoios, cantatas as well as much instrumental music. The accompaniment he has set to the tune sounds very much like a hornpipe - - a British form.
