Organ Pipes

I am returning to my "Miscellaneous" folder for a while now with a mixture of subjects, although for train fans there will be an odd sprinkling of shots from that genre.

On 9th.February I posted a picture of the altar from St.Peters Church, Bardon, Leicestershire. This was taken at the same time and is of the arch and pipes above the organ in this lovely little village church.

The Church was designed by Mr John Breedon Everard, on land given by Mr William Thomas Everard.The foundation stone was laid on 6th June 1898 by Lady Mary Glyn,(wife of the Bishop of Peterborough). At the ceremony there was alarge number of local clergy and parishioners.

The Church is built of stone quarried at Bardon Hill and Markfield with dressings of doulting stone. The inside is lined with Ellistown red bricks relieved with Bath stone dressings from Corsham Down. The building contractor was Mr H Bland of Leicester.

Nicely crisp and well framed Brian - there are always interesting things to find in churches.

Wonderful capture with a perfect symmetry Brian!

A very fine shot, superb symmetry and lighting. Always amazing when in use, the sound generated is extraordinary. The detail here is wonderful, Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Paul, as a rule I enjoy listening to church organs, they give a lot of atmosphere to a building.

I think the sound will be magnifiscent, love the tones, you did so good here Brian, I always like these kind of shots in churches, very soulfull.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid, I love the sound of church organs especially when you can't see them but the sound just floats through the building.

A fine view, Brian. I love the sound of a pipe organ and I'd love to have a go with one (not that I can play a note, you understand!).
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, I did have a go when I was younger as I play a piano but it is totally different, and there are foot pedals as well. Needless to say I was an abject failure.

This really is a very good picture, I know how hard it is to take half-decent shots inside churches and also to get the perspective right.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ellie, i would have liked to have taken more of the church but it was a flower festival and the place was heaving with people.

Lovely capture Brian of this impressive organ
Brian Walbey: Thanks Aussie, the sad thing was that I never got to hear it being played.
