Whilst staying at Southport, we visited our friend Brian who has just moved there from Thaxted and also Peter Jebson who is the Organist at St Cuthberts. The organ is a four manual Copeman Hart instrument designed by Ernest Hart, Nigel Ogden (of the Organist Entertains fame) and Peter Jebson. It switches between a traditionally voiced to a theatre organ voicing at the throw of a switch. After Peter had demonstrated this wonderful instrument I played it for a while. As far as I know this organ is unique; it is a joy to play and I can’t wait to return to play it again for a little longer.
