Organ in pieces

Today saw the first pieces of the organ start to be removed. It's quite a piece of work!

It's also aroused quite a bit of local interest with the radio, television and newspaper all wanting a piece about it.

There are about 4500 pipes in our organ. Each has to be removed, restored and replaced. It should take about 18 months, and costs a small fortune.

So did you commission a Durham firm for the restoration because they built your organ, or for nostalgic reasons...?

This is a hugely ambitious project, and we wish you every success with it. I can't wait to come to Bristol to listen to the newly restored organ.

Surely it is not premature to start a discussion on the commissioning performance?
