Me playing the 1871 John White organ of St. Andrew’s church, Westland Row, Dublin. This wonderful instrument contains many ranks of Cavaille-Coll pipework, although has been compromised by alteration of the mixtures, substitution of the orginal Pedal Bombarde with a half-length reed unit and electrification of the actions (originally mechanical and pneumatic lever). This wonderful organ was inaugurated by W.T. Best. Apologies for the many mistakes in my performance, the purpose of which is really to showcase this special musical treasure.
