About ChurchCare

The Present Organ

An organ by a good maker will be a work of art, particularly if substantially unaltered, and should be respected in its own right, with regard for its historic importance. Destruction or substantial alteration of an historic instrument is poor stewardship and damaging to our cultural heritage. Organs of historic value may qualify for financial help for restoration. The careful restoration of an organ may well produce a visual and musical improvement.

Before any decisions are taken, it is necessary to make a careful assessment of the existing instrument. For this you may need help. In Anglican churches, each Diocesan Advisory Committee will have an Organs Adviser. In addition to contacting your local adviser have a look at our guidance (PDF link Assessing the existing organ).
