St James’ Organ

organ-originalThe original organ was built by Gray and Davison in 1885 and was subsequently rebuilt by Monk and Gunter in 1938.

The present two manual organ was refurbished in 1990 by Hill, Norman and Beard.

A new console and transmission system was provided and some tonal changes undertaken.

As part of Phase 2, the parish is embarking on a major rebuild of the organ.  The consultant is Dr Christopher Batchelor.  The aim is to restore the very best of the original Gray and Davison instrument while also enhancing the organ’s ability to speak more adequately into the nave.

It is hoped that the work will be completed in time for the 450th anniversary of William Lamb’s tenure as Master of the Clothworker’s Company in 2019.

The organ can be made available as a practice instrument.
