"It will stand for many decades as a vast quarry of information, reliably documented and clearly presented. It dwarfs all previous attempts to deal with this significant phase of organ building, and provides, for the first time, a coherent interpretation and periodization." Notes
Between 1820 and 1870 a number of influences combined to bring about a radical transformation in the design and use of English organs. This important book provides a comprehensive survey of English organ building during these most innovative fifty years in its history. It is richly illustrated with photographs and specially drawn diagrams and contains an invaluable appendix of organ specifications. This is a documentary source book and history which will be indispensable for all those, professionals or amateurs, who have an interest in the organ.
