PIPE ORGAN INSTALLATION DELAYED

INSTALLATION DELAYED, BUT WORK CONTINUES!

Last month we were very disappointed to report on the delay that the Covid pandemic has had on the delivery of our new organ. Finding an alternative installation date has been difficult not least because of the supply of missing parts for the organ and the demands on the Abbey during the remainder of 2022. However, we are happy to advise you that in consultation with Fratelli Ruffatti we are now planning for the organ to be delivered and installed between January and March 2023.

Meantime, and as planned, we will complete the enabling work to the new blower room and the triforium including the blackout of the two clerestory windows above the two platforms already installed. This work will take place between 25 April and 13 May 2022 and whilst it should cause minimum disruption to the day-to-day activities of the Abbey, we apologise in advance for any inconvenience that may be caused from time to time.
