    Organs in Howick, New Zealand

    So today I decided to go up to the local Anglican Churches (both on the same grounds, the old 1847 church is not used often, but is used every two weeks by a Taiwanese (I think) congregation)

    Anyway, the pictures!

    Old Church (Selwyn Church) (2 Manual + Pedal, 6 Speaking Stops, 30 note Pedalboard; Croft Organ)

    New Church (All Saints) (2 man + Ped, 13 Speaking Stops, 32 note Pedalboard; Aplin Organ)

    What beautiful photos - thank you so much for sharing. Are you able to provide sounds bytes of either instrument?

    Just love the window photo in the new church, so beautiful.
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    Thank you for commenting!
    I have no recordings of either organ at this point, but I may be able to record something as the year goes on. Stay tuned! (pun fully intended)

    That's a sweet little organ at the old church. I imagine it's quite unusual for such a small instrument to have a tremulant.

    Not wishing to go off topic excuse me if I add a few pics.
    When I lived in the UK my local Church had a bellows operated Organ which was always worked by a choir boy and was a deterrent for any wayward choir boy. I recently tried to get some info and pics of the Organ but they had ditched it years ago and installed a new one, what a great shame, but I can show you the Church.
    Built 1771-3, St Bartholomew’s was the Chapel of the Lord Craven the cost was
    £5000 and is situated at Binley, Coventry

    Beautiful little church. Terrible shame about the organ, though!
