1975 SIOC Continuo Organ – restored after EQ

$40,250.00 Incl GST

Continuo organ – commissioned by Mr & Mrs Bernard Bicknell and built by SIOC in 1975 for the Christchurch Town Hall. In 2010-2011 earthquakes the instrument suffered water damage and was an  insurance write off. In 2014 we purchased it back. Since then it has been fully restored. Its tonal egress has been improved with the new grille work. The EQ damage was to the floor of the organ, the lower case and the bass-note wind-chest, all of which we renewed.

Description

Specification is (Wood) Gedackt 8, (Metal) Rohr Flute 4, Principal 4, Octave 2, Quint 1 1/3, Scharff II.  61 notes, mechanical action, hinged top, castors, internal blower. Non-transposing. Circa 500kg. It’s not an organ that you can put in the back of a station wagon. The voicing style is neo-baroque and is quite gentle apart from the Scharff.
