remade organ in striking Victorian case thanks to design and fundraising led by NVCOP
rich musical colours chime with Arts & Crafts artefacts
The original Miller organ, made c.1900 within a swallow’s-nest case, was, by the Millennium, hardly playable.
Now remade as a well-resourced one-manual-and-pedal instrument, it speaks with an engaging musical personality.
Dividing some ranks (treble/ bass) enhances versatility.
NVCOP energised this project and sourced significant funds, boosted by the PCC’s own vigorous campaign – a remarkable achievement for a tiny hamlet!
