In a few short months the organ at Holy Trinity Church, Stratford-upon-Avon will go silent. This is not a bad thing as much-needed restoration work will be taking place which was deferred due to the pandemic. Major scaffolding will be put in place and all pipework will be removed. Leather actions and mechanical parts will be removed and rebuilt, and soundboards and other wind chests cleaned, repaired, and restored. Leaking wind lines, a major source of noise throughout the church when the organ is on, will be replaced with new. Rough-sounding pipes will be reworked to speak properly. And console issues, including worn key bushings and pedals, will be addressed. All to begin right after New Year’s Day, so it’s time to make the most of what we have right now as the organ will be gone until just before Easter…and what a glorious Easter that should be!
