Me at the 2 manual Nicholson & Lord at Short Heath Methodist Church in Willenhall, West Midlands. Im playing the "Battle hymn" which has been used as the tune for the hymn "Mine eyes have seen the glory", the anthem for Manchester United football club and the spiritual "John Browns body".
The organ originally started life at Walsall Street Methodist Church, Willenhall and following the closure of that church in about 1964, the organ was moved and installed here. The specification reads:
PEDAL Open Diapason 16' Bourdon 16'
GREAT Open Diapason 8' Stopped Diapason Bass & Clarabella Treble 8' Dulciana 8' Principal 4' Wald Flute 4' Fifteenth 2'
SWELL Open Diapason 8' Lieblich Gedact 8' Viol d' Amour 8' Voix Celeste 8' Gemshorn 4' Oboe 8' Tremulant
COUPLERS Great to Pedal Swell to Pedal Swell to Great
ACCESSORIES 2 composition pedals to Great 2 composition pedals to Swell
Many thanks to Sheila Southall for allowing me access into the church to make these videos on this fine organ.
